Joyful Noise!

Today, is SONday.  My Lord's Day.  And, if you know me, or if you've been a reader of Life with Lynnie (LwL), you'll know that I love to worship my Lord.

In case you aren't aware, Sunday is not the only day I worship.  I do this, regularly. 

I read my Bible.  I pray.  I listen to preachers/teachers when I can.  And, I sing songs honouring to Him.

One piece of music that came to mind on Friday evening, was I Love You Lord.  Here is a LINK for you to listen to it, if you like.

Although it is not a full song, it is a lovely chorus that resonates in my mind regularly.  Here is the lyrics:

I Love You Lord (music and lyrics by Laurie Klein)

I love you, Lord
And I lift my voice
To worship You
Oh, my soul rejoice!
Take joy my King
In what You hear
May it be a sweet, sweet sound in Your ear


One reason I truly enjoy singing this, is because I do love my Lord.  And, I do lift my voice to worship Him.

Yes, I lift my voice in song to honour my Lord, regularly.  Not just on Sunday's.  Not just during worship service.

Even when I wake up, almost every day there is a song on my heart and mind.  It's like I must have been subconsciously singing it, to honour and worship God.

One thing I am grateful for, is that our Lord recognizes that even through singing we are worshipping Him.

After all, His Word tell us to use song to worship Him, in Psalm 95:1, "O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation."

Whether sick or healthy, aloud or in the inner being of my soul, I worship through music.

It's part of me.  And, I believe God gave me this gift to honour Him. 

Anyone who knows me, knows I enjoy singing with music, but I also enjoy singing a cappella (some people write it as... acapella).  Meaning, without music.

For this, I am grateful, because it means that I do not need to wait to honour Him, until music is played.  I can honour Him, any time, anywhere, any time, and any place.

Thank You, Lord... for allowing me to make a joyful noise unto You.


Until next time...
