The Second Chance Series:Soaking Worship Explained.

On my Author page, I pondered or rather wrote whether I should tell people  what Soaking Worship is. Everyone knows what Praise and Worship is, but not that. In fact the first person left me nice three stars review because I disappointed her. I wrote very little about ranching ,  she never heard of  soaking worship and the rape scene was too long for her. I think she hoped my book would be a nice long book about ranching and romance. It is not a romance book, sorry to say.  She seemed happy I mentioned Chris Tomlin.

There is a difference between Soaking Worship and Praise and Worship. I think it is obvious. When you are in a bathtub, do you soak in suds and bubbles or do you praise it? Are you not immersed in the bubbles? Or do you dance and clap your hands in the bubbles? (Be careful you could slip and fall if you do) My questions reminds me of Paul when he said he sounded foolish because I sound foolish to you. I am trying to make a point. No, you don’t dance in the bubbles. I read in the article where it you lie  on your back and you just relax and just  immerse in the music being played. I listened to Graham Cooke Favor of the Lord on  a Sunday. It is not a sermon. He is speaking of the Lord’s Favor. We  are to receive it as we  open ourselves  to prophecy.  Most of soaking worship is prophetic. People like Corey  and Anna Ashbury and Graham Cooke or Heidi Baker. And there are some just instrumental like DappyTKeys or Kings Worship. None of those makes you want to stand and shout and clap your hands but they do draw you into God’s presence just as Praise and Worship do. The only difference is,  you are singing praise songs like Hosanna, or Our God Reigns, songs by Hillsongs, Passion, etc.  Please educate yourself. There are websites on the subject of Soaking worship. I posted one  on my author page on Facebook Madison Books.  There are tons of soaking worship videos on youtube so you don’t have to spend money on a cd and no I am not trying to get you to  or forcing you to buy my book.  My book isn’t about Soaking Worship but it is mentioned a few times in both of them because it has become part of my main character’s life.

The Second Chance Series and Soaking Worship

I have written two books and took the risk of introducing something new to my readers: Soaking Worship. I tried my best to immerse my readers into it, but they still scratch their heads.

Unlike Mass, and liturgy, Soaking Worship hasn’t been part of church history for a long time. You might say it is obscure. The question asked is, “What exactly is Soaking Worship?”

My character says in a scene to her husband, “Christian inspirational music.” It is music that inspires you to worship. Of course, I’m sure all christian music should inspire us. But there is something about the music that just draws us into God’s presence. I read at website that it “Soaking worship means that we are simultaneously focused on both giving and receiving. At first glance, this appears to be a contradiction”  4 Benefits of Soaking Worship

So if you are of an older generation. please read up before you read my book. Thanks.
