Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day. – Psalm 96:1-2
I saw this quote on my Facebook feed the other day. I snorted. Literally snorted.
I guess that was one of those days when I had no song in my heart.
I was struck by how simple they made it sound. Sing anyway. Oh, sure, it’s that easy.
I started to hum a little ditty in my mind. The tune for “If You’re Happy and You Know It”, only I wasn’t. Happy.
Then I made up the first verse.
If you’re crappy and you know it
stomp your feet!
A giggle burst forth from my mouth. From somewhere deep inside me that was full of joy. A place I hadn’t known was there until that moment.
And then I had to roll my eyes because I realized that it was that easy after all. Just that easy.
So now I pass on this challenge to you. No matter the song, no matter the day. No matter if you make up your own rebellious words as you hum.
Just sing anyway.
Holy God, thank You for putting a song in my heart every day. You snuck right in and hid it within me. The joy, too. How did You know it was the perfect gift? In Jesus’ Name, Amen…
