My Worship is for Real

On last week, I attended the Homegoing Celebration of an awesome woman of God. In fact, she was the mother of a very close friend of my husband and I. This Pastor and friend has certainly been there for my family, and we truly appreciate His friendship. Of course, the fruit never falls far from the tree. We love you, Pastor Jeffrey Mandell Broadnax!

As with all similar events, this Homegoing celebration really caused me to sit and reflect on my own life. As I sat and watched everyone celebrating this woman's life, a sudden peace came over me. . . A peace in knowing that when I do leave this world, I can leave knowing that my family will be able to celebrate, knowing that I am resting with the Father. Even more, despite my many mistakes and errors, I have changed somebody's life with the Gospel. Of course, I strive everyday to be obedient to ALL God has called me to be and do. Yet, just that one thing alone is so impactful. I have yet so much to learn and so much to do for the Kingdom. Still, few things touch me as much as knowing that someone, even if only one person, can literally be turned away from hell just from my witness and testimony. To God be the glory!

During this celebration we attended, the choir also sang one of my favorite songs. So many times, especially in ministry, I have been misunderstood. If you are in ministry and haven't been misunderstood yet, just keep serving Him! It gets difficult sometimes, trying to please God, yet knowing that men will be disappointed and angered - even the saved ones (smile). Yet, this thing is all about me and God - it's all about pleasing the Father. YOU must do what the Lord has called you to do. Sometimes, people will not understand...but let God be true and every man a liar.

I must share these words from a song titled MY WORSHIP IS FOR REAL by Bishop Larry Trotter and the Sweet Holy Spirit Combined Choirs (Tell the Devil I'm Back, 2001), and from MORE THAN ANYTHING, by Lamar Campbell and the Spirit of Praise (When I Think About You, 2000).


You don't know my story,
All the things that I've been through.
You can't feel my pain,
What I had to go through to get here,
You'll never understand my praise,
Don't try to figure it out,
Because my worship, my worship
Is fore real.

I've been through too much
Not to worship Him!

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
My Worship is for real!

Thank you, Jesus.
Thank you, Jesus.
My Worship is for real!

Lord, I love you.
Lord, I love you.
My Worship is for real!



I lift my hands in total adoration unto You
You reign on the throne for You are God and God alone
Because of You my cloudy days are gone
I can sing to You this song
I just want to say that I love You more than anything

Love me in Your Arms
You were my shelter from the storm
When all my friends were gone
You were right there all along
I never knew a love like this before, Oh
I just want to say that I love You more than anything

I Love You Jesus
I worship and adore You
Just want to tell
Lord, I Love You more than anything
