Romans 7:15
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. 

Worship is a lifestyle, a choice, an ongoing reach toward the greatness of our God. He is worthy of our adoration and praise. He deserves the best we can offer, yet, sometimes we fail to give Him all that He is worthy of. We become distracted and sidetracked. We look around us instead of upwards toward our Father. We fall back into old traps, old patterns of living, that we previously have fought against. And, when we least expect it, we find ourselves invaded by the very things that we once worked so hard to rid ourselves of. These “weeds” can choke the worship out of us, leaving us absorbed with our own self. It can be discouraging when you recognize sin has crept in and overtaken your worship but don’t give up. Christ has set us free and stands ready to assist us in decimating the weeds and looking up to the Father.
