Five Minute Friday...Here I am...

I was so sad to miss  5 Minute Friday last week! We were out of town and  about half way to our destination, I realized it was Friday and I had completely forgotten! So I am excited to get back on track today with 5 Minute Friday. The rules are simple, one word...five editing...which means no over-thinking!! Today's word is HERE:

 Here I am to worship,
Here I am to bow down,
Here I am to say that You're my God...

These are the words to one of my favorite worship songs.

Here I am to doesn't have any conditions on it...just that I am here to matter my mood...even if the worship team doesn't sing songs I like....I am simply here to worship.

Here I am to doesn't say where I am to worship...just here...worship is not exclusively for inside the walls of a church...I can worship Him here...and here is anywhere I happen to be! I can bow down and say that You're my God anywhere...I can do it here...right now...where ever here is!

Each morning as I wake up all I need to do is say God I'm here...and here and now I choose to worship you!!

Here I am to worship...what is worship? Is it simply standing up and signing songs on Sunday morning? Is it listening to Christian radio? Worship is so much more that what we think it is. 

Therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship! Hebrews 12:1


  1. Wonderful five minutes! Glad you got back in the swing this week!

  2. Yes, may we live in a state of worship. Be blest in your worship here, today. God bless,

  3. What a wonderful way to wake up saying "I'm here Lord". I too love that worship song.

  4. First of all, I, too, love that worship song. It's now swirling around in my head (not a bad thing at all).

    I love your words and your heart, your willingness and availability to Him. What an encouragement!!

    Have a blessed weekend, by friend:))

  5. Surrendering my heart in worship. I can think of no better start to each day. Stopped over from the 5 Minute Friday!


Thanks for Pondering with me! Let me know your thoughts!
