Sing

When I entered junior high and needed to pick an elective, I chose choir. I figured it would
be an easy class, I would be able to meet some new people and that would be it. What I
didn’t know at the time was that not only was it an easy class and I was able to get a good
grade, some of my best friendships were established and I continued with choir until I
graduated high school. In high school, we even did some traveling, which was an added
bonus. What I have taken away from my school experience is the gift of singing.

I will never say that I am great singer, nor will I ever say that I am a good singer, but I can
carry a tune and when I sing to the Lord, it fills me up like nothing I have ever experienced.
Some of my greatest times have been in worship, singing to the creator of the universe, to
my King. The songs may vary, but my heart does not, I love to sing. Psalm 96:1 says,
“Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! Sing to the LORD, all the earth.”

I don’t know about you, but I think it would be safe to say that we all go through times in our life when things do not make sense, when we are at a loss for words. It is these times that I
have gone before the Lord and sang, not always knowing what to sing, but I have a ‘go-to”
song and I will let you in on a little secret, I sing Jesus Loves Me. Now before you laugh,
think about it, this song is the best. It is simple, we all know it, and the words are timeless, it
is all I need to know and without fail, it brings me back to where I want to be – in His
presence.

Who would have ever thought that a song that I learned when I was really little would have
an impact on my life today? So when you are at that point, look to Him and sing:

Jesus loves me this I know
For the Bible tells me so
Little ones to Him belong
They are weak but He is strong
Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
Yes Jesus loves me
The Bible tells me so

Love it buddy. To this day I still play my son's Fischer Price music box from when he was a baby. I'd lie with him in his room while he was in his crib and the gentle sound of Mozart playing a lullaby.
