authentic worship

I just experienced one of the most authentic worship times in my life! I walked across the auditorium to listen to the sound levels and stopped far to one side for a while.

As I stood and began to worship, I noticed a 'mentally challenged young man' worshiping. It was one of the most moving times of worship I have ever experienced.

He had a freedom to express himself that I have never felt. He could have cared less who was watching, I often wonder who is watching me. He was filled with the Holy Spirit at a level that most 'normal' people never reach. Complete surrender, unaware that he may be the only one with a true understanding of our Savior.

I will look for this young man in the future and try to stand near to him during worship so I can also leave cares behind and become overcome with love for our God and express it freely!

That is amazing. That reminds me of a friend of mine. He worshiped God so differently and so free that it impacted my life.

I want to be just like him!

We have a young lady, called Simone. She's just a beautiful worshipper. And it's because of the same thing.

I know that she would love to dance before her King, but our worship is still pretty restricted at the moment. How long before we are free?!

Thanks for the post. It's so true.
