What Do You Worship?

Peanut Butter Co. Dark Chocolate DreamsI was looking forward to finding out the Five Minute Friday prompt tonight. I even made time to jump into the #FMFParty on Twitter, which was fun, if a little head-spinning. I likened it to pulling into a busy, multi-lane roundabout. So, tonight’s FMFParty chatter centered around chocolate, Nutella and Dark Chocolate Dreams, which is by far better than Nutella.

I love good chocolate. Savoring the good stuff is the best way for me to enjoy it. Much like fine wine, it’s the enjoyment and noticing every little nuance that’s the key.

When I lived in Virginia. I couldn’t get enough of the mountains. I loved every little view of them that jumped out at me as I drove around town.

Lately, I’ve been taken with the clouds. They are constantly changing in mid-Missouri and I love watching them.

These and more are things that I enjoy in life. I want to snatch up every little bit. Savor it. Enjoy it.

Is this my worship? Do I worship the clouds and mountains and chocolate? Is that the end all, be all?

Never.

It is the One who made the earth and sky and sea. Who drew breath in man and gave him the creativity to figure out how to get that delectable treat out of a cocoa bean. Lord, God, Creator. It is He who I worship when I savor and enjoy things in the world around me. He gets the glory and honor.

Ah, tip of the iceberg. Tip. of. the. iceberg. So, what, or rather, who do you worship?

This is a song for the suffering – but it’s really a song of worship, worship through suffering, with an excerpt from a sermon by John Piper – check it out when you can.

Join me with Lisa-Jo and the Five Minute Friday community at (in)courage this week for more posts on the prompt, Worship.
