Music begins to play, and my spirit hears worship. I close my eyes and hum softly.

Baby Girl hears as well. She puts down her toy and crawls to where the music is coming out of the computer. Pulling up to stand, she listens.

I am suddenly aware of her presence. She has a far away look, and I know she hears the worship in the music. She doesn’t bounce to the music as she does with other music – this is different to her.

I pull her up into my lap and we sit together.

Baby Girl is ten months old and she seems aware of worship, or is it His presence that she senses?

He trusted on the LORD that he would deliver him: let him deliver him, seeing he delighted in him. But thou art he that took me out of the womb: thou didst make me hope when I was upon my mother’s breasts. I was cast upon thee from the womb: thou art my God from my mother’s belly. (Psalms 22:8-10 NIV)

Perhaps worship is not something we learn to do, but something that is cast upon us at birth.

During this time of Lent, let us take time to sit quietly before the Lord Our God and allow our spirit to worship, without  structure, without doing it “correctly”.

Just worship.

Let us allow the hope that was placed in us from the womb to open like the flowers in the garden at springtime.

Lent is a time for pulling back from the things of this world so that we can reenter refreshed and renewed.

Let the hope that was place within you at your birth arise and worship Him in spirit and truth.

Allow worship to draw your spirit into His presence, to affirm to you that you are His. This is truth. This is true worship.

When no one is looking, how do you worship?
