Today, let’s thank God for the gift of music! Praising God with a song is one of the most joyful ways to express our thanks. Whether we sing with all the breath our lungs can hold or we hum quietly to ourselves, whether we approach it with laughter or solemnity, whether we possess great skill or none at all, music can often express what our mouths otherwise would not or could not utter.
Have you ever seen a musical? When do the characters typically break out in song? Usually, it’s during a moment of intense emotion or feeling. Music doesn’t often further the plot of a musical as much as it reveals what’s in the character’s heart.
The next time your heart is full with thanks to God, try letting it overflow into a song.
