Today’s Scripture Selection: Psalm 40:3

“He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.  May will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD.”

Sometimes life can seem like one long rut.  At least that’s what I have heard others say.

Thankfully, I can’t really say I feel that way about things.

I find that most days there is more than enough coming my way that I typically think, if anything, I could use a little less coming my way!

To put it in a more positive way, I echo what the Psalmist says above.  Every day God puts a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise.

There are new things to learn, new people to meet, new challenges to undertake, new opportunities to serve.

I feel sad for those who say life has become more of a “re-run” – like an old TV show that constantly runs the same episodes over and over again.

Surely God’s universe is large enough that, with a little effort, we can all find something new to experience; something new to share with others.

In the same Psalm that we read of “new” songs being in our mouths – there are also these words of encouragement:

“Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders you have done.  The things you planned for us no can recount to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare.”

Anyone who can proclaim that clearly doesn’t live in a rut.

Every day a new song of praise – sounds like a pretty good life to me.

Prayer: Lord, may I lift up my voice in new praise daily.  AMEN.
