Do you ever tap your foot to the music in your car or belt out a song at the top of your lungs? Do you sometimes find yourself at the piano playing an old familiar tune? Maybe you pull out your guitar or dust off the instrument you played in high school for the occasional sing-a-long. Perhaps you dance to the music when you clean your house or sit quietly and listen as an orchestra gloriously transports you to a foreign land. In stores do you find yourself humming along with the songs that play in the background?
Music is all around us, but it is also in us. We can all sing. Granted, some voices in the world’s eyes are better than others; just watch one of the talent shows on TV. There are the elated ones whose magical voices send them packing for Hollywood and then there are the deflated ones whose voices send them packing for home.
But regardless of our skill level, the music is there. God gave us the gift of song, so that we can use our voices to praise Him.
Psalm 33:1-3: “Sing joyfully to the Lord, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him. Praise the Lord with the harp; make music to him on the ten-stringed lyre. Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.”
Today Lord, I want to sing my praises to You. Thank you for music that blesses me. Thank You for the music I make that blesses You.
