but drink deeply of God’s Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and offer praise in your hearts to the Lord.
Ephesians 5:19 (Weymouth New testament translation)
Oh, how I love to sing. As an auditory processor, music deeply touches my heart. My oldest daughter knows that when I am sad, scared, or even angry that the best way to get me take my eyes off my circumstances is to turn on the radio. “Let’s turn on the God songs!”, she will tell me. Nothing reminds me to turn my eyes on Jesus more than songs praising Him. Music helps me to take my focus off myself and put my focus on Him. My children and I even have what we call “Party songs.” These are songs that we stop what we are doing when they come on the radio. We turn up the music, and sing them at the top of our lungs. I am so thankful that God gave us the gift of music.
These are my thoughts on the Five Minute Friday prompt word sing. Each we gather to pour our hearts out on to the page concerning the topic of the week. You can learn more about Five Minute Friday here.
