I love to sing and listen to good music. I can get lost pretty quick in a sweet melody that keeps me humming all day long. I can go from the shower to the car, from the car to the desk. I can sing of God's love and not even rest. From the desk to the gym, don't let it be an old hymn. I keep those in my heart for days I don't even want to start. Music is truly an amazing thing God created. Thank God we can sing our way through everyday. God gave us music, and He allows us to express creativity as we sing. No matter what your day looks like add a song to it. Encourage yourself in the car, in the shower, at your desk or as you walk down the street. Sing your way through today. Make it a concert, let your heart sing, your hands clap and your feet pat. God hears you and your voice stands out to Him.
Thought: Today, I choose to worship on purpose and give it my all.
Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord all the earth.
I Chronicles 16:23
Sing to the Lord, all the earth; proclaim His salvation day after day.
This was a busy weekend for me. It was busy and beautiful at the same time which sounds a little crazy to me. I was surrounded by beautiful people and beautiful things all weekend long. Over the weekend I discovered my love for music again. I found myself lost in several songs, jamming to beats I heard before and some I had not heard. I thank God for allowing me to take time to slow down and appreciate so many of the gifts all around me. Gifts of being loved and sharing God’s love, spending precious time with family, meeting new people, and watching beautiful waves crash against rocks. There is so much beautiful music in my life and I must slow down to hear it, appreciate it and love it. Listening to music and singing, always lifts me so I lost the busy and found the beauty. I discovered I must not get so busy I can’t sing a song or sing along. My love for music runs deep within my heart. God’s beauty surrounds me, and I could sing of His love forever. What song might you sing to encourage yourself in the Lord today or make someone’s day beautiful?
Here’s a little something that came to my mind recently while listening to this song called Smile by Jonathan McReynolds. My thought was “God is always thinking about you.” It made me smile inside and out and I hope you keep smiling too because God is always thinking about you. Take a listen and keep smiling.
