Worthy Still

A few days ago I got too overwhelmed for words.  Friends were hurting, family members needing a downright miracle, and yet still personal needs and struggles.  
Too many diseases needed healing.  
Too many wounds needed binding.  
Too many heads needed lifting.  
Too many broken hearts needed restoring.  
Too many mistakes needed redeeming. 

I went to my bedroom and closed my door and sunk to the carpet and just sat in the presence of God in a way that my heart was saying words that my mouth could not-God do something with all of it.  Just something.  
As I knelt by my bed pouring out my heart to God, I imagined myself kneeling at the foot of Christ and literally laying down every single thing that was on my mind.  One by one they went.  It didn't take long before I imagined I was absolutely surrounded by broken pieces of things I was leaving right there, at the foot of the cross.  As I stayed right there I began to worship Him, for even when life is messy, worthy still is the Lamb of God.  My tears began to flow as I poured out my praise more and more.  

Suddenly I had this image in my head of me in the midst of all these broken pieces I had laid down getting soaked in my tears of adoration.  Isn't this life?  Isn't this something God is stirring up in us all?  
To begin to praise IN the mess, long before we see Him begin to clean it up.  
To keep on worshipping even when that mountain has not budged and you can't help but wonder, when God?  
To simply trust His heart is good towards us always.  Even when we haven't seen Him do it yet or even if He doesn't do the thing we wanted at all-He Himself is worthy alone.  

I know I'm not alone.  I'm preaching to the choir at best.  We all have this seemingly never-ending list of needs, hurts, "just-do-something-God" moments.  What if the test of our true worship is the timing of it, can we do it even then?  No matter where you are or what you're going through, keep on worshipping the only One who is worthy of all out praise, simply for who He is.
