“Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent” – Victor Hugo
Every now and then we all feel spiritually dry. I’ve been struggling with this lately. It seems like God has been quiet and that has affected my writing. At times like these worship is more important than ever. Singing praises to our Lord will connect you to God in a special way. Praising our Lord helps us remember what He has done for us, and who we are In Him. I feel like I am communicating with my Lord in a more perfect an intimate way when I am singing His praises. I want to bless God through the music. To quote Jimmy Needham, “Worship is more than a song.”
The church I attend has a fabulous music ministry. You can be blessed in either traditional or contemporary services. Worship each weekend always glorifies God and helps you connect with our Savior in a warm, personal way. Worship this past Sunday was more special to me than usual. All the music helped me think about our Lord and want to praise Him, but it was the final song that touched me the most. Heather sang out Forever with so much meaning I wanted to cry. I am so thankful for God’s promises to us, and for His victory, expressed during this song.
Singing Forever was an act of worship, but it also refreshed my spirit. It’s one of the great reciprocal benefits of experiencing the Christian life. The more we praise and worship our great God, the more we are blessed.
Sing to God, sing in praise of His name, extol him who rides on the clouds; rejoice before Him—His name is the Lord.
May you feel His presence through music.
