Song on your heart

"O sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth!  Sing to the Lord, bless His name; show forth His salvation from day to day." - Psalm 96:1-2

What does the song of your heart say about you?  

Anyone that knows me... knows I come with a warning label... "May burst into lyrics at any moment."  Anyone that loves me... accepts it for what it is and joins in... others just shake their head and things I am crazy.

But... what if I challenged that crazy thought that God wants us singing praises to him day to day... moment by moment.

The writer of this psalm (aka song) was in the midst of great trial when he wrote this... and great changes happened in David's life as these songs came out of his heart.  Now his circumstances didn't necessarily change but his heart did.  Through song... he was reminded who his God is... no matter his circumstances.  

The circumstances in our life my change... but our God is unchanging!

"Sing to the LORD a new song"

We are not singing to people... so it doesn't matter how we sound.  The LORD just wants a joyful noise.  However people around us are watching...

What does your song say about you?

Be intentional about the song that you sing!!
