The Call to Worship

Updated: Jul 4, 2022

(By Rachel Joyce)

Shhh. Can you hear it?

Or does the noise of daily life, 

The cacophony of hustling, 

Clamoring to be heard,

And to striving to achieve 

Drown out His gentle call, 

“Come worship Me.”

Don’t overlook His summons.

Breathe in slowly and feel it

Deep within your heart,

An unspoken ache, a restlessness, 

A longing for His presence, 

A thirst, begging to be slaked 

By Living Water. 

Long ago in Eden,

Our first parents would hear

The golden, evening call as

Cool breezes and quivering leaves

Signaled God drawing near, 

To enjoy their presence and 

Receive their worship.

From generation

To generation, His invitation

Has sounded, not like

The rumble of thunder 

Or the roaring of fire, but as

A soft, compassionate whisper, 

“Come, delight in Me.”

And my heart responds,

“Lord, I am coming! Your glorious 

Presence is the light of my life,

Illuminating my path, 

Revitalizing my soul, and

Flooding my being with joy,

Unending delight in You.”

“Happy are those who hear the joyful call to worship, for they will walk in the light of Your presence, LORD” (Psalm 89:15).
