Joyful Noise...From All

today's reading.
Psalm 95:1-11     Oh come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation...
Psalms 95

Psalms 95think about it.
What reasons are given for thankfulness and praise (95:1-7)? What is the warning in this psalm (95:8-11)? How does giving thanks keep you from a hard heart?

the blog.
"Oh Come, let us sing to the Lord..." (Psalm 95:1). I'm a singer and musician so those words really resonate with me. Of course I'm going to sing to the Lord. But what if you're not a singer? Maybe you can't really sing on tune and singing where someone might hear you is a little intimidating. No problem because although Psalm 95 starts by telling us to sing to the Lord, it then expands on that to say (twice) "make a joyful noise" to the Lord (vs. 1 & 2). I lead worship at my church, and one of my favorite things is seeing and hearing all the voices (on tune, kind of on tune and not on tune) raised in praise to the Lord. It's simply beautiful.

So how are you doing in the "make a joyful noise" department? What reasons do you have to sing to the Lord this weekend? Tami W.
