What Song Do You Sing?

Psalm 40:3
He has put a new song in my mouth.

Every day we are bombarded with noise.
Most of us start the day out with loud alarm clocks,
followed by the noise of traffic
or maybe its the kids screaming and yelling during play.
The dog is barking.
The phone is constantly ringing.
Teenage kids are driving up and down the street with their 10"
woofers and you feel your heart with every beat of bass.

We listen to the radio and what comes out is not gratifying.
Or the tune gets stuck in our head.

So do we let the noise around us become our song?
Do we let it get stuck into our head?

Music has been around since the beginning of time.
It is powerful.
It shapes our mood.

Sing to the Lord.
Sing from your heart.

The Bible is full of scripture about singing to the Lord.
The book of Psalms are all songs.

So it doesn't matter if its a hymn, Christian rock, or made up.

Today, sing a new song.
One which affects the spirit.
One that glorifies God.

And God will listen!

Psalm 96:1
Oh, sing to the Lord a new song, sing to the Lord
all the earth.
