A Joyful Sound


My sister and I have been challenging ourselves and others to do something new each month. This month I chose singing a song each morning and each night. I don’t sing well so I sit at my computer and sing along with one of the CD’s I have put on ITunes. My choice depends on the mood I am in. Some mornings I am boisterous and happy as I sing along with Donna Fargo. In the evening I often close with a favorite hymn. My problem  is people who see what I am singing start worrying about what is going on in my life. It is true that we have been having some challenges in our lives for the last few months. But the songs fit my mood and are favorites I’m revisiting from past years.

In Psalms 96:1 we read,
"O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth."

"sing before the Lord, all ye righteous of the earth.''
Sing to O Lord All. The Earth. Sing to the LORD a new song; Sing to the LORD, all the earth. Sing to the LORD, bless His name; Proclaim good tidings of His salvation from day to day.…

Psalm 13:6
"I will sing the LORD's praise, for he has been good to me.”

Some days it is hard to sing. When I see reports on the news about people killing police, People eradicating Christians, tsunamis and earthquakes wiping out whole villages. I get depressed.
Psalm 33:3
"Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy."

God wants us to be happy. Even through our trials we can find joy and
Peaceful moments

How do you find peace and joy in your trials? Helping others? Enjoying your surroundings?
I sing. It feels good.
