Non-Stop Worship

1 So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life - your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life - and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. 2 Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Romans 12:1-2a,b (MSG)

"Non-stop worship??!!"  Well, that idea I woke me  overwhelmed!    
OK, just stop, take a breath, rest in Him and listen......"embrace what God does for you."  In truth, praising and worshiping Him as a backdrop throughout  the day creates a tantalizing background melody which bathes us in His amazing sweet love!     To my family I said that I feel so 'at peace' here in Guam.  The oft felt low level "stomach knot" seemed to unwind the minute I stepped off the plane.  Joe Collins remarked that I seemed to bring "joy" with me??!!.  Me??
Wow, God, really??   Wow! 

The truth-- when we do place it all before Him as an offering....not much else matters so very much.  Its there but it doesn't drown out His song.  
 I have been delighted by the blessings in the opportunities this week:  joining in campus praise, prayer  and worship;  meetings with Dave, or Daisy and Pete from student life;  working on the graduate seminary counseling curriculum; planning for the March trip to Yap; developing a presentation on "narrative therapy" for the Storytelling conference. The pure joy of simply  babysitting the kids,  engaging with Joe and/or Lisa on endless topics (oh the pure enjoyment of being able to disagree with respect!!) or just spending some goofy "girl" time......I am sooo glad He graced us with the ability to laugh!!!  To Him all glory and praise!

Prayer request: wisdom for curriculum, seminar  and training design.
