Here are some optional readings for you as you live a lifestyle of
worship:
There is a kind of worshipper who "always trusts, always hopes,
always perseveres" ( 1 Corinthians 13:7 ), and who gets through the
storms of life with a heart still blazing. Sometimes it comes down to a
simple choice. We may be hard-pressed on every side, weary and not
able to sense God. But then a choice faces us to fix our eyes on the
circumstances or cling to God and choose to worship Him, even when
it hurts. The heart of God loves the offerings of a persevering
worshipper. Though overwhelmed by many troubles, they are even
more overwhelmed by the beauty of God
Worship brings ever deepening and expanding dimensions of God-at work
in our world. Worship, in a very real sense of the word, opens a
doorway to the power of His presence, confounding dark powers and
overthrowing sin's destructive operations. In Paul's words of
expressed spiritual warfare, worship and praise exalt God and cast
down those facts and forces that seek to exalt themselves above Him.
Essentially, it is God's presence: the raw dynamic of His Being and
Person stepping into a setting-that gives place to His transforming,
redeeming, delivering power.

The Unquenchable Worshipper by Matt Redman

Worship is the believer's response of all that he is--mind, emotions,
will, and body--to all that God is and says and does. This response has
its [spiritual] side in subjective experience, and its practical side in
objective obedience to God's revealed truth. It is a loving response that
is balanced by the fear of the Lord, and it is a deepening response as
the believer comes to know God better.

"The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express the same
delight in God which made David dance." ~ C.S. Lewis

Real Worship, Warren Wiersbe, Oliver Nelson, Nashville, TN 1986, p.27

"As worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience.
Holy obedience saves worship from becoming an opiate, an escape
from the pressing needs of modern life." ~ Richard Foster
