I’m not going to be fancy here and plug in any worship music. Because, quite honestly, I just haven’t learned how to do that yet.
However, in the midst of some very sad things and hard circumstances lately, God keeps speaking…and singing…His loving grace and truth into my heart, mind and spirit. And I know that God wants all of us to receive the blessings that come when we acknowledge His loving grace and truth that He has for us. There is great blessing—there is healing for our hearts, transforming of our minds and lifting of our spirits—when we speak and sing in thanksgiving to our Eternal, Faithful, Righteous, Loving LORD!
So, join me in this musical interlude—in our hearts and minds and spirits—as you read…think about…meditate on…pray…and SING Psalm 98:
Sing to the LORD a new song,
for he has done marvelous things;
his right hand and his holy arm
have worked salvation for him.
The LORD has made his salvation known
and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
He has remembered his love and faithfulness to the house of Israel;
all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth,
burst into jubilant song with music;
make music to the LORD with the harp,
with the harp and the sound of singing,
with trumpets and the blast of the rams horn —
shout for joy before the LORD, the King.
Let the sea resound, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it.
Let the rivers clap their hands,
let the mountains sing together for joy;
let them sing before the LORD,
for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness
and the people with equity.
In love, peace and purposeful passion, Sylane
