I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. (Psalm 104:33)
I read the preceeding passage today during my quiet time and was reminded of how far I've come. At this point in my life there is not much I would rather do then worship God through song. I love it!
But as I read that passage and resonated with the words I was reminded of a time in my youth that this was not the case. I remember exactly where I was sitting in the church service when it happened. My friend JJ was sitting in front of me and noticed that I was not singing. Assuming that I was not singing because I didn't have a hymnal, she gave me hers. Here was my brillant comment: "Oh, no thanks. I don't sing."
God forgive me for ever being at a place in my life that I didn't feel compelled to sing of your greatness. I promise to make up for lost time. I will sing praise to my God as long as I live!
