Did you know that the Greek word proskuneo means to kiss (like a dog licking his master’s hand), to do reverence to, adore, etc.? It originally carried with it the idea of subjects falling down to kiss the ground before a king or kiss their feet.
When I worship God I like to think of this. He is definitely worthy. There is a song by Sixpence None the Richer that I think of my God when I hear it. Come on, bear with me and use a mature mind. Nothing “sexual” about it. Simply paying adoration and reverence to a God who is closer than a brother – a real friend AND a king.

Kiss me out of the bearded barley
Kiss me down by the broken tree house
I like to think of the “We’ll take the trail marked on your father’s map” as me and Jesus and God the father’s map. A journey through life.
I hope the reader doesn’t take offense by what I say here today. It’s not about religion, but a relationship with The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. That’s what He wants.
Just something for you to ponder. 🙂
