The best medicine for taking care of the winter doldrums is to sing a song. If I can’t find the words to a melody or lack the enthusiasm to raise my voice, I choose to look out my window to see creation sing its praise. The whole world is singing a song to the Lord and we can join the chorus. Look and see …
The wind is blowing the leaves into a swirling dance. Fluffy clouds are molded with images that seem to have been designed for my eyes only. Snow covers the dead dry grass, making all things new.
It’s a choice to look for something good. To listen for the song to fill your soul. Have you heard it? “God loves you. He made you. He is pleased with you.”
It’s easy to forget that song when we focus on the wrong things that want to rob our joy. God is good. His unfailing love endures forever.
This is your song to sing!
1 Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
2 Worship the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing with joy.
3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God!
He made us, and we are his.
We are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving;
go into his courts with praise.
Give thanks to him and praise his name.
5 For the Lord is good.
His unfailing love continues forever,
and his faithfulness continues to each generation.
