Grab some water, a mat, and a band or light hand weights and join us for our latest full-body Holy Barre workout! (If you don’t have a band, simply go through the movements with light hand weights or empty hands.)
During this workout, we step into ‘broken worship’. Brokenness is all around – in ourselves, our families, our communities, and our world. Due to broken relationships, broken bodies, broken souls, and broken peace, we all are drawn towards a state fo complete surrender and defeat as we experience hardships. Thankfully, His power is made perfect in our weakness. And despite of or because of our brokenness, we can worship the King of Kings for true satisfaction, joy, peace, and strength!
Let’s break down Romans 12:1
‘Therefore, I urge you, in view of God’s mercy . . . ‘ In Romans 11, Paul discusses our disobedience and God’s response of mercy!
‘ . . . to offer your bodies . . . ‘ In other words, to ‘dedicate all tangible things’
‘ . . . as a living sacrifice . . . ‘ We daily make a choice who/what to worship, and as followers of Christ, we daily die to self and sacrifice our desires and struggles in surrender to His love.
‘ . . . holy and pleasing to God. This is your true and proper worship. . . ‘
Ask yourself these questions:
- What/who do I worship?
- Do I trust God enough to chose broken worship and surrender?
- Do I believe He will respond with more than I can ask or imagine?
- Does this choice/action/thought please God’s heart?
- Does this choice/action/thought satisfy my soul?
Friends, we are broken . . . and it’s beautiful. For further truth, read Romans 8:31-39
