We Can Sing
Today's reading: Psalm 137:1-9
Even when times are tough, we can have joy if we keep our eyes on God and continue to praise and sing to Him. Sometimes, though, that can be difficult. There have been plenty of times when I've gone to a church service weary and downhearted to the point that I didn't want to sing or participate in the service--but I left the service with a different attitude. Why? Because I chose to sing to the Lord--even as I struggled. My decision to sing (many times through tears) served to sooth my heart and open my ears to hear more clearly from God, who was right there by my side.
