What is an act of worship? Rich Muchow writes, “Music can be an act of worship—but it doesn’t have to be. When we roll into church on a Sunday morning and sing a song just to check off another item on our do list, that’s not worship. It’s just singing.
On the other hand, taking a nap—when we’ve surrendered control of all the unmanageable events of life, when we’ve relaxed into the all-powerful hands of our Lord—can be a powerful statement of worship, particularly in a world that constantly relates busyness to value.”
I’m reminded of Jesus sleeping during a storm.
24 Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.
Sometimes during the storms of life, we need to just give it to God and in an act of totally trust and surrender, take a nap.
24 when you lie down, you will not be afraid;
when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
8 I will lie down and sleep in peace,
for you alone, O Lord,
make me dwell in safety.
I pray our loving Father will watch over you and all of us, as we enjoy His peaceful sleep.
