It’s All About Him

Do you ever find that it takes you a while to remember what worship is really about?

In church this morning it wasn’t until the last verse of the second song that I suddenly remembered I was supposed to be thinking about the words, and I was supposed to be focusing on and worshipping God!!

Last night I was up for about 2 hours in the night with my 2 year old, so I was a bit tired, and I am out of practice since I have missed church for three weeks running due to the same 2 year old being ill. But those are just excuses, and I was quite shocked that it took me so long to realise where my mind was.

So I tried to refocus my thoughts, from thinking about how good the band was, and how I liked that song, and whether I should sing harmony or melody, to how great God is!

And very appropriately for me, the next song was, ‘When the Music Fades’ which says, ‘I’m coming back to the heart of worship, and it’s all about You, it’s all about You, Jesus.’ I grinned inwardly as I rebuked myself and tried to take that message on board.

In thinking about those words as I sung, I also realise that the words could be applied to our life too. It’s all about You, Jesus.

‘For to me, to live is Christ’ Phil 1:21
Why are we here? To know God, bring glory to God, and bear fruit in His name. It’s all about Him.
It’s amazing how it simplifies everything to focus on God. Other worries and problems become insignificant when we remember why we are here.
  • It doesn’t matter what other people think of you, because what is really important is what God thinks.
  • It doesn’t matter so much if nobody loves you, because God does.
  • It doesn’t matter what things you gain or lose in this world, because at the end of the day ‘it’s all gonna burn’ and only what’s eternal will last.
  • It doesn’t matter how hard tomorrow might look like it’s going to be, because the great God who made heaven and earth is for you, and is on your side!
  • It doesn’t matter if you die tonight, because you will see Him who loves you more than anyone else, and will go to a place where there is no weeping or pain (assuming you are a Christian).

Now we just need to refocus our straying minds more often on what we are really here for: Him! Lord I pray that my life, my thoughts, and my ambitions would be all about You.
And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. 2 Cor 5:15

    Rhoda, thank you so very much for this beautiful post. I copied the points that are “all about Jesus” for my journal, so I can often read them. The song is so beautiful. It was a wonderful start this morning! Thank you. Kind regards, Annette

    Hi Rhoda – I also do that, I’ll be singing and my mind will be elsewhere and suddenly I’m telling myself, hey, what are you singing? focus already! And like your situation, God shows His sense of humour in the next song 🙂 Lovely post and great reminder to focus on the praise and worship. We can only benefit.
    God bless

    Thanks Tracy, I’m glad I’m not the only one!!

  5. The cares, concerns and demands of this world do try their best to capture all of my attention, even when in the midst of worship. And yet, as you so beautiful expressed, if we keep our focus on God, everything comes into perspective and we see that yes, it IS all about God. And then…what freedom we experience. Freedom from the cares and worries, freedom to truly worship, to truly live, to truly experience what it is all about…HIM!

    Blessed for having been here today-

    Hi Stacy, thank you for visiting and sorry for the late reply! Thank you for your beautiful way of putting it, it’s true that it is really freedom when we focus on God, because all those other things that would entangle us lose their hold.
