songs of praise and thanksgiving to God
Yesterday morning, as usual, I was in the gym, a bit disgruntled from the cold, but still raring to go. It was a struggle to get started. What helped me was some sweet music from my trusting mp3 player. A few tracks in, I forgot the cold and grunted away in tune to the music and dumb bell lifts. Ah music is good.
Today dear Papa, I say a BIG THANK YOU FOR MUSIC… at this point I remember this song by ABBA:
Thanks for all the joy they are bringing
Who can live without it?
I ask in all honesty
What would like be
without a song to dance to?”
I am thankful for music, for like David the Psalmist, I know it is good to sing praises unto your holy name... Psalm 147:1 "Hallelujah! It's a good thing to sing praise to our God; praise is beautiful, praise is fitting."
I am thankful that like David, everyday you give and teach me a new song to sing (as I clear my throat to belt a tune this morning, X - factor contestants watch out oh!! ), Psalm 40:3 "He taught me how to sing the latest God-song, a praise-song to our God. More and more people are seeing this: they enter the mystery, abandoning themselves to God.".
I am thankful because I can sing to praise and worship you anywhere, anytime, in and out of key; its still praises to you and you still listen and are still glorified.
Papa, I pray that my basket of thanksgiving for you for music, is sweet smelling and acceptable in your presence today. Be honored, glorified and praised. In the mighty name of Jesus Christ, I praise, thanks and pray. Amen
