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!
