Ever wondered why some people raise their hands in worship?


At least, that's why I do.

These song lyrics from Hillsong's The Stand explain it beautifully..

"I'll stand with arms high and heart abandoned in awe of the One
who gave it all. I'll stand.. my soul Lord to You surrendered. All I am is

What could I say? What could I do? But offer this heart, Oh God,
completely to You?"
Oh the feeling of abandoning myself in worship to my Savior! Opening myself to the One who gave it all. What can I give him? My unabashed, unashamed arms stretched out wide, surrendering to Him!

*side note: I don't just mean while singing!
