Around the Throne

I have entered the Holy of Holies, standing before Your throne
The four and twenty elders have cast their crowns at Your feet.
I see Cheribum and Seraphim surrounding Your throne
The four creatures and angels joining in a melody so sweet.
The aroma of praise fills the air, as the glory
and honor You are worthy of causes me to weep.
I am unworthy of Your presence. Please take the coal
to my lips and cleanse them so I may speak
To tell of Your glory and splendor, to sing a new song of praise
To join with those around Your throne and the crystal sea.
I want to stay here with You, to remain at Your throne
and worship forever where I can feel your love and peace.

Yesterday morning on my way to church, I was praying and meditating on God's word, when I remembered the verses in Revelation about the creatures and the 24 elders who unceasingly worshiped around the throne of God. How they took their crowns and layed them at the throne and sang :
"You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being."

There is no glory, no blessing, no praise or adoration that we receive that is of our own merit. Our very lives are not of our own will, but of the One and Only God. I knew at that moment I had to lay down all crowns. Anything that I thought was of my own, I humbly layed it down. I am looking for a job, and I have of course made a resume that boasts of all my accomplishments and experience. But only by the will of God will I ever find a job. I feel honored and humbled to come to Him and worship and Him. It is my honor to lay my life at His feet, to give Him lordship of my life.
