Even when I was unable to understand the language, I was still able to sense the presence of God in this worship…
What does worship mean to you?
As I contemplated that question, I began to examine my heart in the midst of my worship. For example, was I really worshiping God, or just uttering words with no substance. As I searched for the answer to my question, I came across the song Malibongwe (which means “to be praised”) by a group called Rhema Soul on SoundCloud. It brought me back to a moment of worship I experienced when I was in Haiti. Even when I was unable to understand the language, I was still able to sense the presence of God in this worship. In contemplating these things, I began to see the beautiful, graceful moments I had and have in Christ when I am worshiping from a pure heart of contentment in Christ, and aimed to please Him alone.
This spoken word piece combines multiple songs as a way to express my experience and understanding of what the Lord desires from our worship to Him.
