Worship is more than singing, but musical praise is a special gift. When our eyes are downcast on our sin and shame, worship lifts our sights to Heaven and allows us to meditate on His goodness, His love, His presence, His truth and His victory over sin. I believe worship is vital to recovering from habitual sin and shame, because it affirms our worth and salvation, and facilitates a space to listen for God's voice without the distraction of daily life and stress. Come to Him in pain and anxiety, in eager hope, celebration, grief or confusion. He hears it all, and He is beautiful.
