A Brand New Tune

Today’s scripture selection: Psalms 96-98

Key verses: Psalm 96:1-2

“Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth.  Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.”

Life can be fun and exciting; frightening and difficult; and sometimes – a little boring.

Most of us can identify with that feeling, can’t we; that we are just “going through the motions” day after day?

Well the Psalmist has another suggestion for “day after day.”

It’s to find a brand new tune.  It’s to sing to the LORD a new song.  It’s to find a way of living; a way of serving; a way of loving that quickens the heart and the spirit and causes us to cry out in melody.

Now, I know.  You might read these words and sigh, “Who, me?  You don’t understand; you don’t know what my circumstances are.  You don’t get how it is.  You don’t know me and what I am up against.”

Well, maybe not.

But God does.  God knows you better than you know yourself.  Even now, right now, this very instant you draw breath; God is at work in your life.  And who knows what He has planned for you?

So, take a deep breath.  Square your shoulders.  Fill your lungs with life – in all its rich possibility.  And get ready to sing a new song of praise to God.

Just let it out – even if it’s a little off tune.

It will be music to God’s ears.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for giving me heart and voice to sing.  AMEN.
