The time that I was in New Zealand, my spiritual journey at the time was being fueled by this quote that I saw on someone from IWT's Myspace page. haha
"Everything is Worship
Choose Your God."
It hit me so much that I wrote it on my hand (which opened up good evangelistic oppertunity) but thats not the point,
The thing that hit me so much, was the thing that we heard all the time through DTS, constantly make God the center of everythign blah blah... but this quote the way it was worded really hit me becuase of that last one... "Choose your God", and it reminded me that way back in week...2? We learned that we can make anything a god, but as we know there is only one God, but in every day, in every action... which God are you serving? Everything you do is worship, not just when you are in the process of doting over something, but in the way you speak, the way you present yourself, the way you view the world. It's worship.... so choose who.what it is that you are worshipping. Is it the Creator? Is it your saviour?
Man, sometimes when I caught myself focusing more on having a good time with fellow backpackers in NZ it hit me like a truck... everything is worship... what am I worshipping? THe "Good Time" itself? etc? It was a great reminder every time I saw the quote, to just take a step back and recognise and praise the one who brought me TO Australia, and thus New Zealand, the one who brought me to the peace of mind that allowed me to even HAVE a good time. THe one who is responsible and worthy for/of everything and anything.
It's all about what you choose.
That was One of many revelations I had down south, but I wanted to start the new section for "Quotes" and thought this would be a good one to post.
