Psalm 95:1-2 - “O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation! Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise!”( AMP)
Ever drive down the street and pull up next to someone who is really enjoying the beat of whatever is playing on their radio or MP3? Their head is bobbing , hands drumming on the steering wheel and if they are really into it, they may throw a shoulder or two into a ‘bounce’ move that would make M.C. Hammer stop and take notice. Most of us have no problem singing some popular songs to the top of our lungs while we are in the isolation of our cars or our showers; and I invite you to break loose today and sing some praise songs a little louder than usual.
Tell God that in the words of John Legend, you will surrender “ALL of Me” to his will and his way. Kick the devil to the curb and let him know like Beyoncé says, he and all the rest of the goats, can go “to the left, to the left”. Trey Songz admits that God “Knows what best for you” . Although Nicki Minaj sings about “Touchin, Loving” which may make you feel like a “Natural Woman” only the love of God is real and lasting. So today, take a moment and lift your voice in praise. God does not care about the quality of your tone or whether you remember all the lyrics or even have the rhythm just right. He just loves to hear his children vocalize our joy through song. So while you are “Riding down the freeway” or kicking it at home; stop for a few moments and tune out the world and turn up the volume of your voice and belt out a few numbers to God. If you can’t remember all of the words to a popular gospel or spiritual or hymn…make up your own song. Thank God for his love for you. Thank and praise him for your life and the wonderful people who love and respect you. Praise him for just being him and the Creator of all that is or ever will be. Just sing… Just sing.. Just sing!
Here are a few of my favorites: "We've Come This Far By Faith"; “Awesome”; “Sovereign”; “Solid Rock”; “Beyond the Veil”; and it is NEVER too early for Christmas songs!!! Every day is a good day; it is up to us to make it a great day. Be blessed. La, la, la, la, la, la Dr. JoAnn
