Read today’s scripture: Psalm 89:1-4
Have you ever been asked if you sing?
I have. My response was always, “Yes, but I’m not good at it”
I love worship. I love expression. I love the opportunity to press into the Father’s goodness so intimately while with those around me.
When I reflect on this verse and think about what is means to sing of the Lord’s great love forever, I get two thoughts.
- One: What a gift. What a gift it is to bask in His goodness for a moment–let alone forever.
- Two: I sing, even when I don’t think I’m good at it. I sing to bring glory to the well deserved Father. I sing to enter an encounter with Him that He so freely offers. I sing in surrender. I sing because He hears me and He smiles. I sing because of all He has done.
I sing because it matters so much more than me sounding ‘good’. He delights in it. I can be free in expression to the King because He has made me free indeed. I can be grateful for the opportunity to open my mouth and offer praise directly to the Father. As we welcome the coming of the King, Let’s open ourselves up to praise His name in thankfulness for Him coming, thankfulness for the cross, and thankfulness for His near return.
