Do not fear the intimacy of coming close to Jesus. He wants to be with you. Dance with the lover of your soul.
Enjoy the peace and ambiance of Bethel's "synesthesia". It is their worship music minus the lyrics. What a beautiful sound to gently lead you into prayer, praise and reflection.

This is not a song, but a powerful piece of spoken word poetry by Joel Mckerrow. May it be a comfort to your hurting heart. If you have been hurt by the Church- I am sorry.
This song is very significant to me. It was the beginnings of God tugging at my lonely heart, speaking love into my broken places. He called out to me and said "I love you! You are safe with me. I won't hurt you." These are precious, precious truths.
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.
