The Joy of Worship

Raymond Foss is a very prolific writer and photographer. I frequently stop by his place to be delighted both visually and emotionally. One of his poems recently spoke to my heart, and how I frequently feel during worship. He graciously allowed me to repost it here, but be sure to check out his other work as well.


My eyes welled up
Tears rolled down my cheeks
As the choir sang
Of God’s Love and His forgiveness
Vision blurred for a few moments

Unburdening my heart
In your house this Sunday

You are not finished with me.
You have saved me

And your promise
Paid with your body
For all of us
