Does God need us to Worship Him?

I just saw a headline that asked this question. I didn't read the article because as I went to click the link, my mind flooded with a myriad of thoughts that I felt the need to write down.

We have absolutely no idea, cannot fathom, the strength of God's Infinite Love for each of us. For several years now, it has come to me that when we truly love God, what we receive back is in no way comparable to what we give. It is TRULY a grace and a blessing to love God because when we do, He bestows on us a small portion of His Love .... small, because our mortal bodies could not contain or endure the depth and breath of His Full Love that will be ours in heaven.

God is a Good Father, a Loving and Patient Father for sure! He wants to give us all good things always. When we give a gift to someone, we like to see that it's appreciated, not thrown in the trash before we even turn around. So many times, through indifference, His children do just that because the world has them tightly in its' grips and the children are deaf and blind to the treasure that could be theirs.

Too many say "I LOVE GOD" ... "I LOVE JESUS"; but it's with the same feeling as when they say "I love ice-cream"! We all need to spend time in prayer, preferably in Adoration and beg for the gift of truly loving Him.

When we love another person on earth, we want to learn all we can about
them. We never tire of talking about them with others and spend as much time as possible with them. We want to please them and not offend them in any way, right? Why is it that we don't treat God the same way??
We are too reticent in our thoughts, words and deeds when it comes to a display of love for our God. I will tell you a secret ... lol ... if you REALLY Love God, you won't be ABLE to be reticent about loving Him. Your love will GUSH out, even at unexpected times. Loving with all your heart, opens you to the Holy Ghost and fills you with His Gifts. Your open heart also opens you to His leanings.

So many times, in following a 'feeling', I've been led to someone or a situation that needed God's Touch in a certain way. Sometimes, the things that come out of my mouth are surprising to me and I know it wasn't my own puny intellect. We just have to love and be OPEN and stay grounded in prayer and Scripture. I know this has happened to MANY MANY people!

When we love God, we keep asking how to love Him better, to love Him MORE and more perfectly. I'm constantly asking for God to love ME more so I can return to Him a Love worthy of Himself and so I can share it with all I know, on and off-line! Certainly God's Love has no limitations, but we have to live within our capacities here on earth.

So ... does God need us to worship Him? Yes and no.
God is Self-sufficient of course and needs nothing. BUT .. He permits us to share in His Divinity through the Sacraments and of course He has shared in our HUMANITY through His Life. FAITH.
Faith is not just 'believing'. Even the devil believes, and you know where *he* lives! Faith is an unwavering substance built on the knowledge of what Jesus has done and the promises of what He WILL DO.

There are all kinds of laws in the universe. Do THIS and THAT happens all down the line with different aspects of living here on this planet. Physics, Nature, Science, Relativity, Gestation, Transmutation and all the rest. But basically they all boil down to CAUSE AND EFFECT.

Faith is the Virtue in which we believe in God, all that He has said and revealed to us and all that Holy Mother Church proposes for our believe because God is TRUTH, Itself.

For this we freely commit ourselves to God and constantly seek to do His Will, striving never to offend Him again. We must TRUST with all our being, which is part of Faith; and I believe it opens the floodgates of mercy, love and grace in a significant manner inundating us further with conviction of His Love and Care.

So God doesn't NEED us to love Him, but He WANTS us to love Him because it permits us to receive all the good things He lovingly wants us to have.

GOD IS LOVE. God is TRUTH. Truth is Love and Mercy and doesn't change to suit the world.

HE WILL TRIUMPH, no matter what the world looks like, GOD WINS.

May all come to know the JOY that comes from LOVING HIM!

The Apostle, St. John tells us exactly how to recognize the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood. He says "as for them, they are of the world - and the world listens to them because they speak the language of the world. But we are children of God and those who know God: LISTEN TO US. Those who are not of God REFUSE TO LISTEN TO US. That is how we can tell the spirit of truth from the spirit of falsehood." ~1 John 4:6 [The "us" to whom St. John refers are the Apostles, and their successors the Bishops.]

Prayer to avoid the Sin of PRIDE:
“Oh My Jesus help me to avoid the sin of pride when I speak in Your Name. Forgive me if I ever belittle anyone in Your holy Name. Help me to listen Jesus when Your Voice is spoken and fill me with Your Holy Spirit so that I can discern the truth of Your Word when You call out to mankind. Amen.”

A prayer of St. Teresa of Avila:
O my God! Source of all mercy! I acknowledge Your sovereign power. While recalling the wasted years that are past, I believe that You, Lord, can in an instant turn this loss to gain. Miserable as I am, yet I firmly believe that You can do all things. Please restore to me the time lost, giving me Your grace, both now and in the future, that I may appear before You in "wedding garments." Amen.

“My children, let your speech be chosen with great care—it must be a light in the world. Know and believe that all you say has repercussions in time and eternity. Therefore, choose your words with wisdom and prudence, choosing to remain silent rather than fill the air with useless chatter or worse, gossip or virulent speech. Let your speech be a perfect mirror of your peaceful heart, a heart firmly grounded in the love of God and in complete trust in His goodness. Silence is often the more virtuous path. Bridle your tongue and you will be working for peace in the world.”

In the Name of Jesus I renounce as lies all thoughts that enter my mind from the evil one who accuses. By the authority of Jesus, I command them to leave me. I consecrate my mind to God for transformation into His Thoughts for my protection, salvation and His glory.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

Just a Note:

Through the grace of God and many prayers, I survived a double surgery (with cancer) in the fall of 2008. Since then has becoming increasingly important to me to enhance my prayer life. I have taken on the task of praying for strangers and those with little hope and much adversity. To that end, I've also begun (July '09), to make rosaries and related items to put prayer into the hands of as many as I can that will PRAY for others.

The world is at the precipice ... we need to TAKE ACTION ... NOW. Time for fence sitting is quickly coming to an end. We all need to do what ever we can in the way of PRAYER & PENANCE to beg God's Grace upon humanity that we may shake away this sinfulness and pride to get back on the road that leads to heaven and our Glorious Triune God!

After you have made a decision that is pleasing to God, the devil may try to make you have second thoughts. Intensify your prayer time, meditation, and good deeds. For if satan's temptations merely cause you to increase your efforts to grow in holiness, he'll have an incentive to leave you alone.
~St. Ignatius of Loyola
