Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. – Psalm 98:1
If I had a nickel for every time I heard someone say, “I can’t sing” – I’d be so rich! If God gave you a voice, sing to Him a new song – not because you have a good singing voice – but because He has done marvelous things!
Has He blessed you in your life? Is He worthy of praise? If you answer yes… you gotta sing His praises! If you aren’t comfortable singing in front of people, that’s okay. Hop in your car and pop in a praise and worship CD – and sing along! Just don’t close your eyes, cuz… ya know… you’re driving.
I had a praise and worship cassette tape that I walked to for many years. It had a song on it that was based on this Scripture.
You know what I’d love to see happen??? I would absolutely LOVE to see a Christian Planet Fitness. I like working out – except for the music. The new techno-babble “music” that is played is not particularly inspiring while I’m walking on the treadmill. I know – earbuds and an ipod… well – yeah in a perfect world I could do that. Trouble is, it’s not a perfect world and I don’t have earbuds or an ipod.
I have a cassette player and headphones. That’s how far behind I am. If you think I’m gonna walk into Planet Fitness with my Walkman and headphones – you are cray cray. Ain’t happenin’!
Let’s start the new year by singing to the Lord! Sing to Him a new song – a joyful noise – it may be off-key or out of tune, but I don’t see anything in the Bible that says it has to be perfect – just joyful. 🙂
