Just Sing...Word-Filled Wednesday

Sing to God.

Even if the tune is slow.
Even if the melody is in a minor key.
Even if you can't hear the harmony.

Sing to God.

In our joys, we can make His salvation known.
In our trials, we can show His salvation faithful.
In our sin struggles, we can prove His salvation necessary.

Sing to God, everyone & everything.

How often?
Every day.

Every day?
Yes, every hour of every day.

Sing with your mouth or sing in your mind,
cry songs from your soul or let them beam from your eyes.

Just sing.
Somehow, someway.
Every minute of every hour of every day.

"Sing to God,
Everyone & everything.
Get out His salvation news every day."

1 Chronicles 16:23, The Message

Father God, Thank You for Your salvation. Thank You for sending Your Son in human form, as a precious baby to order to die just for me. I pray that I would be faithful to make Your salvation known, no matter what circumstances come. And Lord God, may YOU receive all the glory and the renown and the praise in the process. I love You, Lord. In Your name I pray, Amen.

Oh, this is so wonderful. I just left Lori's site and had to come right over after reading your comment.

Yours is so different and just as beautiful! Isn't the Lord great?

This verse has such a special meaning for me. I learned to sing in the greatest time of loss one time.

Singing all the way to Bethlehem this year! And while I've not felt good physically, my spirits are in good form. Loved your "mary" post and thoughts about having a deliberate and well-tuned Christmas. We're trying to do the same over here.

Happy Wednesday and week, friend.

Esthermay said...

Wait - I've seen this somewhere today. Hmmmmm. . .
But I like this especially:
"Sing with your mouth OR sing in your mind," (Yes... some of us CANNOT sing)
". . . cry songs from your soul or let them beam from your eyes."

That is a beautiful picture and explains why my husbands eyes shine.
(He can't sing either.)

Lori said...

Sing! Sing! Sing! Thanks for posting this:) All the glory to Him!

Carrie said...

Beautiful Bible verse...The Message puts it very well.

hip chick said...

It's good to be reminded that the Lord loves our songs. I love singing the more religious Christmas songs out loud. It's so inspiring.

Hi LauraLee! Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. I love to sing, but don't have a great voice. It makes me happy to know that God loves whatever I sing to him, whether it's silent and from the heart, or out loud.
