“O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.” Psalm 95:1
Singing is not something that comes naturally for me. I enjoy music, especially live performances, and even listening to the radio lifts my spirits instantly. My own voice is harder to call forth. But when sound resonates in my chest and throat, and then joins with other voices, my very being seems to vibrate. Singing connects us, to each other and to God. This encouragement to do it, and do it joyfully, is a meaningful reminder.
Lord, thank you for singing and the joy it brings. Amen.
