Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth; Break forth and sing for joy and sing praises. -Psalm 98:4 (NASB)

I have a friend who couldn’t carry a tune if she were provided a horse and cart to put it in…but she sings songs of praise to the Lord anyway. She would really belt it out, too!

From a worldly point of view, she wouldn’t win any singing contests, but from the Lord’s point of view, her singing is honest and heartfelt in its joy, love, and worship of Him. And that is true music, when it comes from the heart.

Everything we say, think, and do in our lives are notes of a lifesong. Some notes are in tune. Some are way off. And when we stray, it’s like a record player needle scratching across the record. But we can slow down and honestly, joyfully, purposefully, shout to the Lord with our lives!

Today’s soundtrack

“Shout To The Lord” by Darlene Zsechech honestly proclaims His majesty from the heart.
