I woke up this morning with a real sense that it’s time to share a little more with you about what I believe God has been saying to me, and where this whole thing is going. I figured I’d get it out in a single stream of thought through a quick video that you can link to at the bottom of this post.
His Way Worship is an evolution, not of a company but really of me seeking out God’s will. Someday I’ll share with you where the name came from, and why it means so much to me. God has continually told me through words from others that the heart of HWW is going to reflect the things He is doing in my heart, and it will be for the sake and benefit of others.
Stepping out into this calling has been a process. It started 6 years ago when I had an encounter with God where He shifted my thinking from what I thought the plans for my life were, to a completely new understanding. And through 6 years He has been walking me through the fulfillment of that shift. Now, entering into the 7th year since that encounter, I believe it’s time to fulfill what He showed me.
God will give us glimpses of destiny for us to refer back to as He moves us forward on our path. Those glimpses can come through encounters, desires, passions, words, dreams, visions, or however else He sees best to help us know, deep down, what we were created to do. Remember Joseph and his dream of ruling over his brothers? It took more than two decades for the fulfillment of that dream, and throughout the journey Joseph didn’t have clarity to what it was going to look like. But he always had the dream, the promise, to hold onto.
What is yours? What has God already revealed to you about your life calling? Maybe you brush off thoughts of this “other life” when they come to your mind because you can’t see past the life you live right now. But as Psalm 139 tells us, God wrote each of your days before you were even born. When you come to truly believe that, it becomes much harder to brush off. In fact you have a burning desire to chase after it.
Your life was purchased at great price, by the blood of Jesus. You are no longer your own but His. Romans 12 teaches us that our true act of worship is to offer our lives as a living sacrifice, to do what God desires us to do. The word living speaks to things of new life! Your new life is “hidden” in Christ (Colossians 3). Have you found it?
Worship is not all about music… it is an attitude! It is an unceasing exchange between what we think and what God thinks. What we want and what God wants. This is His way for us to worship!
So it’s time for me to be a little vulnerable and share where my head, and heart has been lately, and what you will start to be see from HWW that will help you make the shift to the things God is calling you to fulfill.
