I am a Worship Stalker heard me correctly. I love to watch other people worship! There is something that stirs in my soul when I see other people with hearts abandoned before God. It changes the atmosphere in the room. It stirs and draws my own heart into worship.

I remember the first time I saw one of my sons at age 15 pull his hands out of his jean pockets and raise them in worship to the Lord. It moved me. I was standing in the back of the sanctuary, and yes, I was stalking the worshipers!

I still have a picture of one of my granddaughters raising her hands in worship. There is just nothing like it!

It has been so much fun watching Trinidadians worship over the last six years. In fact, one of our missionary Interns said that when she gets to heaven and is worshiping around the Throne, she wants to be standing with the Trinis! They give worship their all. They worship with their body,soul and spirit! I have seen elderly Trini's worship with everything they have, even if it is a bit slower that others:)

There is something about "giving it your all" that changes the atmosphere in your own heart and in the room. A church that we were pastors at hosted a Master's Commission Church based discipleship program. I used to love being a part of their worship time. Some would pace, some would put their face to the wall, others would bow, but everyone was aggressively putting in their worship time. 

Opening up your heart is the beginning of change. Change in you, change in those around you and subsequently change in the world around you! 

You might enjoy being a Worship stalker, at least every once in awhile:) It will do your heart good!
