Those who know me well know that I’m not really a “worship” guy. What I mean by that is I’m not the type of person that usually connects emotionally with God through singing worship songs. Third Format definitely gets close for me, but I’m just not wired that way. I’ve met many people who are.
One of the days that we were in Egypt we visited an Oasis in the middle of the Sahara Desert. It was a five hour drive from Cairo and was literally out in the middle of nowhere. The second day we were there we walked up a small mountain and I was able to look out at a sea of palm trees in the middle of a vast wasteland of desert. Being up there, feeling a cold breeze on my face, looking at a seemingly immense geographical contradiction, caused me to have an incredible moment of worship as I reflected on the artistic nature of the God that designed this. I stood up there a little longer as I pondered this. Below is a picture that one of the guys took of me standing there. The second picture is a glimpse of what I was looking at. Our God is absolutely incredible.
I’d love to hear from you guys. Where do you experience these types of worship moments with God?
