1072nd -- Still We Sing


We should always keep the song in our hearts strong, nurtured and vibrant.
The song in our hearts speaks to our countenance, our demeanor and our joy
for life. We should continually, consciously and purposefully have a good 
song, a pleasant song and a praise filled song repeatedly playing in our 
hearts. When we have the right outlook on life, we are playing the right 
song. When we see the good that is in our life, we are playing the right 
song. When we appreciate and show our thankfulness for every gift and 
blessing that God has graciously bestowed upon us, we are playing the 
right song. When we are at peace and our hearts give praise to the Lord 
for His love, mercy and grace, we are playing the right song. When we 
play the right song in our hearts everyone around us will take notice. It 
will be evident outwardly what is happening inwardly and that is a true 
testament of how every Christian should carry themselves.

We who know the goodness of God should be quick to make it evident to all 
those who cross our path. We as ambassadors for Christ should have our 
song singing so loudly that all who come near us will hear it and will 
want to know what song it is that is playing so beautifully. The Bible 
declares in Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in 
all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and 
spiritual songs, singing with Grace in your hearts to the Lord.” It is 
biblical to sing songs of praise in our hearts. The Lord takes pleasure 
in seeing us filled with Joy and knowing that our hearts are perfect 
towards Him. Loving the Lord and keeping Him at the center of our lives 
makes singing songs of Praise easy because we are living in His goodness.

I pray that you will continually have a song of praise playing in your 
heart to the Lord. His goodness, His mercy, His love, His forgiveness, 
His redemption, His sacrifice and His grace are the reasons that we can 
rest in Him and Joyfully sing songs of praise to the Lord. He deserves 
every bit of the little that we have to offer.

I hope this message inspires and encourages your heart to see the goodness 
of God in a new light and allow yourself to be the instrument in which 
songs of praise can be sung unto the Lord.


I love that first day of birdsong we get here in the mountains each year. 
It usually happens in the first week of March, but it came early and 
caught me by surprise this year. I had just woken up and was walking my 
dogs in the warm morning air. Suddenly the sun rose over the hilltops, the 
world grew golden, and the birds started to sing. At least 12 different 
bird songs poured out from the treetops. Each one had its own melody, its 
own beauty, and its own joy. As they blended together the whole world 
seemed full of love, full of wonder, and full of light. It was a glorious 
Symphony that Beethoven or Mozart themselves would have been proud of. It 
sang praises to the goodness of life and the greatness of God. I was so 
delighted to be able to hear it once again. I knew too that it would 
continue for several weeks to come as the birds built nests, found mates, 
sung of love, and started the cycle of life all over again.

As fantastic as it was hearing the birds singing in the morning, though, I 
find it even more wonderful when I hear human voices singing. That is 
because we will always have one advantage over the birds: we don’t have to 
wait for Spring to sing. We can sing when it is cold and dark. We can sing 
Christmas Carols when our lives are in the midst of Winter. We can sing 
songs of light when the sun is still hidden by the clouds. We can sing of 
joy even when our hearts are hurting. We can sing of love even when we 
feel unloved. We can sing praises to God in Heaven and then use our song 
to bring Heaven to Earth as well.

The birds may welcome the Springtime with their songs, but we can create 
Springtime with ours. God gave each of us a special song to sing with our 
lives. It is up to us, however, to sing it. Don’t keep your own voice 
quiet. Join in the Symphony and bring music, light, love, and joy to the 
world. We are all Children of God and be it light or dark still we sing.

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 35:27-28 “Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my 
righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, 
which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. And my tongue shall 
speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.”

Hebrews 13:5-6 “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be 
content with such things as ye have: for He hath said, I will never leave 
thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, 
and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Romans 8:28 “And we know that all things work together for good to them 
that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.”

John 14:27 Jesus declares
“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto 
you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be 
troubled, neither let it be afraid.”

Joshua 1:9 “Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be 
not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee 
whithersoever thou goest.”

Psalm 91:14-16 “Because he hath set his love upon Me, therefore will I 
deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known My name. He 
shall call upon Me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; 
I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and 
shew him My salvation.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
