Sing for Joy

But as for me, I shall sing of Your strength; Yes, I shall joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness in the morning, For You have been my stronghold And a refuge in the day of my distress.

Psalm 59:16

Allow me to challenge you to something probably new. This may seem a bit strange at first but please give it a try.

Each morning, before your day gets started very much, sing a song about God’s strength and His lovingkindness. It absolutely makes no difference what tune you sing the words to or if you can even carry any tune at all.

Make a point to do this everyday for the next week and let me know how things appear to you after a couple of days.

This might mean that you will have to put down the Ipod, turn off the TV, the radio or the CD player. There is nothing on any of those that will make a difference equal to the sweet offerings that come out of your lips.

Please let me know of your experiences. I would like for us to encourage one another. Life is hard enough sometimes isn’t it? A quick reminder of the goodness of our God can be so refreshing.
