Ladies, do you have a song in the morning? You know a song that you sing in the shower, or maybe as you’re on your way out the door every morning, on your way to work or to run errands. Maybe you whistle or sing along with your radio as you are driving; or, if you are a commuter or bus rider, perhaps, there is a radio station on. You hear that song in your mind, most of the day long. Wouldn’t that be great if the last song that you hear is a song to glorify God? You hear it over and over all day in your mind, while you are at work, at your appointment or at home. You hum along and you are glorifying the Lord. Hallelujah!
I remember living out in the country where I grew up and early in the mornings we would first hear the neighbor’s roosters crowing. I would just listen up closely for the whistling of birds upon the house roof, where they would land. I did not care much about the roosters. The birds chirped and I would just lay in bed until noon. It was a song to me, and so peaceful, that I would just lay in bed; no television, no radio on; just the sounds of birds. My mom would peak in on me and ask, “Do you want biscuits?” My mom’s biscuits were great, but after having them nearly every morning with syrup, I grew rather disgusted with the norm. Getting bored with the sounds of birds whistling was never anything that I got accustomed to. I would invite them into my heart as if the songs that they sang were to me.
Many of us have gone through trials of life and we have music that we listen to that makes us feel better. The book of Psalm is filled with Scriptures of the poetry of King David, in which the songs were recorded in the temple hymn books in biblical times. We too need to have a song, and keep a song in our hearts, for the Lord. The Bible says that we must sing a new song unto the Lord.
So like the birds we can sing, whistle or even tweet a song. Psalm 40:3 says, “And He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God; many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord.” When we praise God daily, and glorify Him; when we keep that song in our hearts, the Word of God says that many shall see it. Praises Be To The Name Of God.
