A Song for the Day
Did you wake the dawn with a song this morning? (La, la, la, la) And, no, I'm not kidding. Psalm 57 is a great example of how we should live--regardless of our situation. The first 6 verses of Psalm 57 are David laying out awful circumstances (Saul chasing after him for his life). But then we get to verses 7-11 (which I love BTW) and we see David going off about singing praises and exalting God's name. David even tells us that he will wake the dawn with his song. He talks about his confidence in God and how he will give thanks and sing praises among the nations.
So how are you doing today, this week, this month? If you're experiencing some hard times, you can still praise God and, yes, wake the dawn with your song. If that's not the norm for you, why not try it? You might be surprised at how it lifts you up and helps you get through your day. Tami
