From where I stand.

     Worship changes our perspective. It shifts our focus off of our circumstances. When our hearts are overwhelmed with with the things we are facing, it is so easy to become discouraged, and to slip into despair that anything can ever change or that we will make it through a struggle. Turning our gaze to the Father who loves us, and focusing on who he is, and who he says we are, even just for a moment can change our whole world view.

     I can go from being in a very dark place emotionally and mentally, and a moment after I truly step into his presence, all of my fear and anxiety just drops away. It doesn't change one circumstance in my life, it changes where I am looking at them from. It lifts me up above my human perspective and allows me to see it from the angle of the one who knows my future, and works all things together for my good. Worship moves me from being alone, to being carried and cherished. Because I remember. It's not about me.

He knows the way that I take, and when he has tried me, I will come out as gold.  Job23:10
