Thursday, May 19th: Psalm 81-83, 1 Chronicles 29:23-25, 2 Chronicles 1:1, 1 Kings 2:13-46 ~ Jeannine

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Psalm 81-83, 1 Chronicles 29:23-25, 2 Chronicles 1:1, 1 Kings 2:13-46

Psalm 81:1-2

Sing for joy to God our strength;
shout aloud to the God of Jacob!
Begin the music, strike the tambourine,
play the melodious harp and lyre.

Music plays a large part of our worship today and throughout history.  There are many ways to worship but to me music is a large part of it.  So often I find that when I'm feeling down or discouraged the right music can lift me up.  Or when we are joyful and happy we burst into song. Through music we can often reflect on our needs and shortcomings and celebrate the greatness of our God.  What a great gift we have been given!

Some of my most favorite songs that I like to listen to when I am needing a lift are some good old gospel songs, especially by quartets...here's one of my favorites.  Hope you enjoy it!

Music can definitely change how you feel. When I used to play hockey, I made up a cd consisting of songs that would pump me up before a game. They weren't exactly the best songs but they did what I wanted at the time. Music should be used to praise God and like the song said "get in touch with God". By doing so, we should feel pumped up for Him.

It's amazing how much music can influence our mood and mindset. A reminder to be mindful of what we're listening to and how it affects us.
