God is my . . . Song!

Day 2245: Without God, what would life be?

Scripture: For the Lord God is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation.”  Isaiah 12:2b

Thoughts/questions: There will be other verses where God is our strength, so we will only focus on ‘God is my song’ today.

A well known song says it well! ‘Why should I feel discouraged? Why should the shadows come? Why should my heart feel lonely and long for heaven and home? When Jesus is my portion, a constant friend is He. His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me! His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me! I sing because I’m happy. I sing because I’m free. His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me!!’

We were made to sing! Whatever their age or culture, people sing! But what is their song, and does it even matter what their song is?

It’s easy to sing when conditions are good, but a song which gives hope and comfort to our inner being when times are hard is a ‘God song!’ So when God is my song, His song raises our level of joy or decreases our level of sorrow! When God is my song, His song brings healing and joy to my soul!

Sing, but not just because you’re happy. Sing God’s songs – whether in joy or sorrow, SING His song. And when you don’t ‘feel’ like singing, that IS the best time to sing God’s songs – pick a favorite and start singing!!!

Suggested prayer: Lord God, may Your songs always serve to bring me comfort, hope, and joy . . .
