If Ever You Worshiped

I wanted to share the lyrics of a song with you. They are not only encouraging to me, but they remind me that even the day-to-day, mundane things of motherhood can be an act of worship. I hope they encourage you as well!

"If Ever You Worshiped"
Words and music by Danny Oertli

It wasn't that long ago
You were a girl all alone
There was no way to know
How soon you'd have kids of your own

Now you're the first one awake
The last one asleep
Cleaning and making your plans
And there are days when it feels
Like there's no time to pray
You wonder if God understands

But if ever you worshiped it's now
If ever you kept your vow
You may not understand how
But if ever you worshiped it's now

The memory of leaves in the fall
Walking through the canyons so tall
God was so close in it all
Now your chance to worship seems small

You're the first one to taste
But the last one to eat
When everyone goes their own way
And it's your name that's called
In the deep of the night
One more hour of sleep floats away


Every shirt that you fold
Every nose that you blow
Is a gift to the Father above
Every lunch that is made
Every game that is played
Is an offering of love

I found your blog today for the first time, reading this song has so touch my exhausted heart. I too had our fourth child this year, our 4th girl. She will be 5 months old this week and while I know how blessed I am I am equally exhausted. Thank you for teaching me through this song that what I do, the simple things that often go unseen are my humble way of worshiping our mighty King of Kings.
Blessings to you today,
