Sing!

Make Melody in Your Heart to the Lord

Lift Your Voice and Sing

Years ago, when I was homeschooling my young children, I decided to teach them how to wash dishes. They were so excited about the idea of helping mommy in the kitchen.

 

Once they understood the basics of dishwashing I set them to it. My son was the first one to wash the dishes all by himself and he was tickled pink at the prospect. He pushed a chair right up to the sink so he could reach the soapy water, rolled his sleeves up and immediately started singing songs of praise.

 

It was such a beautiful moment for me. I knew he was mimicking my behavior of singing praise songs while washing the dishes. 

 

I became aware right then of how important it is to sing praise songs around our home. Not just to praise the Lord, but to bless our spirit and all of our family members as well. 

Singing to the Lord invites His presence, His peace, and His spirit into our hearts and dwelling places.

 

So lift your voice and sing! 

God Loves to Hear us Sing

 

We are commanded to sing to God. The Book of Psalms is full of Bible verses issuing this command to sing praises, psalms, and hymns, making melody in our hearts to the Lord.

 

God cares that we sing his Word and speak of His gospel, not just calling us to pray and preach but to make music to His name.

 

Does singing make you nervous? Do you feel foolish when singing praise songs? Are you concerned about the tone of your voice or staying on key?

 

We aren't to be concerned with these matters but only trust in the One who created us and praise Him for all He has done.

 

There must be something special that happens in our spirit when we lift our voice and sing to God. This must be the reason why God's Holy Word commands us to praise Him.

In fact the book of Proverbs reminds us that a merry heart works good like a medicine but a broken spirit dries up the bones.

 

Are you depressed or downhearted? Well, one way to achieve a merry heart is by singing to the Lord!

Physical and Emotional Benefits of Singing

Singing praise songs not only brings joy and positivity into our heart and home, but it also has several benefits for our physical and emotional health.

 

Here are some reasons why you should consider incorporating singing into your daily routine:

  • Singing releases endorphins, which are hormones that make us feel happy and reduce stress levels. This can be especially beneficial during times of anxiety or uncertainty.

  • Singing can improve our breathing and posture. When we sing, we take deep breaths and engage our diaphragm, which strengthens our lungs and improves our overall respiratory health.

  • Singing can enhance our memory and cognitive function. Learning new songs requires us to use our brains in different ways, which can improve our memory retention and mental agility.

  • Singing in a group can create a sense of community and belonging. Whether it's singing in church or joining a choir, singing with others can be a powerful way to connect with like-minded individuals and build meaningful relationships.

God knows about all of these benefits that come from singing! It is absolutely beautiful that He would command us to praise His name, and then our mind and body will reap the benefits of our obedience!

Incorporating singing into our daily routine doesn't have to be complicated. We can start this activity now by singing praise songs while doing household chores, like washing the dishes, or singing songs while driving to work.

 

We can also join a local choir or a singing group if we are looking for a more structured way to incorporate singing into our life. Whatever approach we choose, remember that singing is a powerful tool for bringing joy, healing, and the Lord's presence into our heart and our home.

Sharing Original Praise and Worship Songs


The Lord has blessed me with many songs of praise and worship. I am so eager to share them with you! These songs were written at interesting moments in my life and I've written down most of them and have gathered quite a collection. One of my goals in life is to share them with like-minded Christians who would enjoy learning and singing new Scripture songs of praise and worship.

The inspiration for these songs have come to me in various ways, but mostly while working around my home. Have you ever experienced this same kind of divine inspiration? As someone who is devoted to the Lord, music is a way of expressing my love for Him. Though there may not yet be a platform to share these songs, they continue to bless my heart and bring me closer to the Lord.

In the knowledge of Scripture, I understand that the Lord makes everything beautiful in its time, and His timing is always perfect. May His will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We are all waiting for something in our lives, whether it's a new job, a new church, a spouse, or answered prayer. May we be patient and trust the Lord for His perfect timing.
