Please take a few minutes and watch this video.

 One day I was working. It was a truck day, so I was taking boxes off of a pallet and putting them on carts. I was humming this song. G-d dropped some wonderful truth in my spirit. I am alive to worship Him! This, to me, is very exciting news! At a time when all we hear about is “the virus”, the truth about who I am and why I’m here remains unchanged. I can fulfill my purpose no matter what is happening in the world around me.  In our Torah club lesson for this week, it said “the worshiper desires to present a gift to G-d”. G-d created us for worship. His desire is for our lives to be a burnt offering. For our lives, our worship, to be “wasted” on Him. We can do that every day, in any circumstance.

Let’s read Isaiah 43:23-24. “You have not brought me sheep for your burnt offerings, you have not honored me with your sacrifices. I didn’t burden you by requiring grain offerings or weary you by demanding frankincense. You have not spent money to buy me sweet cane or filled me with the fat of your sacrifices. Instead, you have burdened me with your sins and wearied me with your crimes.” The Israelites were to bring their burnt offerings just because they wanted to give something to G-d. It was an entire and total sacrifice of worship. The sacrifice was completely burned up. I believe that this is what we are to offer as well. That He desires for us to offer all of ourselves to Him completely, without holding anything back from Him. I found it very comforting to know that I can fulfill my purpose, even in these times we are living in. I hope you do as well.
