Coming Back to the Heart of Worship

Where it’s all about You, it’s all about You, Jesus.

I was just getting ready to type this announcement and this song popped into my head. What is it about ‘The Heart of Worship’ by Matt Redman that always seems to ring true and never gets old.

The Heart of Worship

When the music fades
All is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that’s of worth
That will bless your heart
I’ll bring you more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what you have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about you
It’s all about you, Jesus
I’m sorry, Lord, for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about you
It’s all about you, Jesus

King of endless worth
No one could express
How much you deserve
Though I’m weak and poor
All I have is yours
Every single breath
I’ll bring you more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what you have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my hear
t


I’ll bring you more than a song
More than a song

If you’ve been following me at all, you know I’ve been on a ministry break and possible retirement for the last 10 months. So many things have happened over my past few years of ministry— let’s just say it. has. been. hard. But honestly, since the Covid pandemic hit, I was brought to my knees. I mean everything has been stripped away but God and I tell you, I have gotten to know Him even deeper as my only source of hope and help. He’s been my Best Friend in times of great need. I mean He always was, but this has been a greater relationship than ever before because of the weakness I have felt. People leave but Jesus never does. Please note friend—at the end of your days, He will be all you have and all you’ve ever had. Don’t miss the invitation to know Him now.

Last Fall, I decided to lay down all of my ministry for others to pick up. It was not a difficult decision because of the constant battles. My hope was in Him though. In March of 2020 I started reading the Word daily with the goal to finish it in 1 year. I’m still going. Just over 40 days to go to complete this goal but now it’s become such a passion of mine. Or I should say He has become such a passion. His Word fills my soul, my spirit, and my body with just the medicine I need. I am beyond grateful for this time to focus on scripture.

Last Fall, I also heard very clearly in my spirit to spend the next few months on self-care and to encourage other women in this as well. Some may think that has been selfish (probably due to the “self”-care) but really it was and is necessary. When you’re in any sort of ministry for any length of time (including parenting), you can put your focus on everything but yourself. I was tired and needed surgery and a refocusing. A sabbatical if you will. I praise God for every single break He’s led me to and I’ve taken. Something good has always come out of the surrender. But listen, I know there’s been judging. There’s been a falling away of the ones who were always there when the events were on and things were exciting. I’m okay with it. It has been painful but God has stripped away all falsehood and will continue to cleanse the charismatic Church and the prophetic movement. And He will continue to cleanse me because I want Him to. Let Him do it to you too. It’s worth it in the long run and there’s nothing you can hold on to in this world that is worth it, that is worth more than He is.

In some ways, nothing will change. I’m still on a journey and will never “arrive”. I still need physical and mental healing and I’m totally fine to be authentic and admit it. I know the truth of who He is and that’s more than enough for me. Let it be enough for you too. You don’t have to be perfect to love God and love people. You don’t have to be perfect to do what you’re called to do. But you do have to take care of yourself enough to still be here to do it. That’s something I’m learning and hope to share with others. I’m not perfect and never will be. God is though and His strength will see me through again and again and He will see you through as well friend. Just call on Him.

And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Cor. 12:9-11

Pray for us. Pray for me. Honestly, I have NO IDEA what this will look like but a weak yes is all He needs to work in and through me and in and through you. All I know is that I can give my small offering of some sort as He leads. Let’s face it, Covid has been crazy and so divisive, not to mention an illness that I don’t wish upon anyone. As a result, I will continue to protect my and my families’ health as I walk forward with wisdom and prayer. I do know that I won’t be taking any travel invitations this year. Thanks for praying us through this, we so appreciate it.

I will continue with my beauty influencing business just not as much as I have been. I started sharing LimeLife by Alcone products in December to coincide with my blog and I honestly love the products and community. I continue to use LimeLife daily and so I love to share things I’ve found that help me. This business also helps provide a bit of an income for me so I appreciate all of the support I get whether from orders, shares, likes, or comments. The truth is I still need to make a living and I will trust God to provide for me however He chooses to. Thank you to those of you who stuck by me and supported me and to all of my new friends and followers. I appreciate you more than you know! You have been a lifeline to me over the past few months and I’m so honored to serve you and get to know you better. My business website is: https://www.limelifebyalcone.com/thepeachykeendiaries. I will also have my PayPal account available for anyone that wants to donate to my ministry however it will look. You can reach me there @tbutlermin.

Onward and upward friends! Let’s make a difference with our lives laid down for the King. Time is drawing near.
