I believe that most people love to talk. I enjoy talking about my family or my stuff. I know what I know from my life experiences. I certainly don’t know everything, but I know some things. I actually know some things that don’t work because I’ve experienced failure. I’m not a fan of people who “know it all”. I do enjoy learning new concepts every day. I think one of the reasons I enjoy my time in the Word each morning is that I learn something new about the Lord or I gain a deeper understanding of His character, His attributes…His heart. Check this out….2 God is the one who saves me; I will trust him and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord gives me strength and makes me sing. He has saved me.“ 3 You will receive your salvation with joy as you would draw water from a well. 4 At that time you will say, “Praise the Lord and worship him. Tell everyone what he has done and how great he is. 5 Sing praise to the Lord, because he has done great things. Let all the world know what he has done. 6 Shout and sing for joy, you people of Jerusalem, because the Holy One of Israel does great things before your eyes.” (Isaiah 12:2-6 NCV)
I love this passage because of the declarations contained and my response to those declarations. I enjoy music. I love listening to music. I enjoy singing along with music. I think music expressing my heart in such a way that words can’t touch. Words certainly can help me be specific in my worship, but music can be so eloquent, expressive and passionate.
When I stop and reflect on what God has done and is doing in my life and in my word, I can’t help but be grateful. I want to speak about His Mercy, I want to shout out my gratitude for Grace and I want to sing to Him and sing about Him. He inspires my words, my songs & my life!Pressing On! Dwayne
