Singing Songs Helps Me Along!

Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE singing about everything. I usually have a song in my head, maybe it’s published, maybe it’s just my randomness. 🙂

My children think it’s hilarious that I sing their chores to them, or sing song ask them to brush and tickle their teeth. I may use the music from Les Mis, Fiddler on the Roof, Sound of Music, random 90’s songs, hymns and my own creations.

I love music, and life for a while there, got so busy that I missed what seems like years of music. I only purposely listen to Christian music now, but still have the memories of many songs before I made the decision to only listen to music that would encourage my heart and not offend my guardian angel. 😉

Singing lightens my load and keeps me stable, deepens my worship and quiet time with God, and makes me smile.

Some of my favorite memories are shaped around music, one with my oldest son would be one time when my husband and I picked him up from childrens church and he was crying. We have seen that before because of his speech delays and others not being very generous of heart with patience for him to get his words out. We expectantly asked him what was wrong, only to be surprised by the answer. He answered… “I got so filled with Jesus in that song that I just cried!”. Wow. I know how he feels, I often get choked up in church at a worship song that hits my heartstrings and the power of corporate worship in general. It is beautiful to hear a crowd sing praises.

May your heart be full of music and thanksgiving.

Colossians 3:16

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts
