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...
