Today's Verse: Psalm 98:1

Sunday, February 25, 2007

Sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.
— Psalm 98:1

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Songs can stir us up or they can bring us comfort. Songs can take us back to a special time, or songs can give us hope for things to come. Unfortunately, we usually leave the words and the music of our songs only for someone else to write, never taking time to write our own "new song." But today, why not make up your own new song of praise and thanks to God. It doesn't have to be great, just heartfelt and offered to the Father from whom all joyful songs come.

My Prayer...

Father God, thank you for the gift of song. Please receive my song of thanks and praise from a heart you have filled with your delight. In Jesus' name. Amen.
