A Christian’s Song

One observer said, “Christianity is a singing faith.” Do you agree? Are there times that your heart seems to sing for joy at God’s goodness? Are there times when your heart is so broken all that comes out are plaintive notes to God?

In our Bible is a collection of songs to God, we know them as the Psalms. Some are joyful and ecstatic, repeating the blessings of God. Others are heart rending and painful to read because of the raw emotion and disappointment. These are a reminder that no matter our feelings, it is appropriate to share them with God.

Is life going well? Are there more blessings in your life than you can even begin to count? Then praise the God who authored those blessings. Is life difficult? Are there more sorrows in your life than you can even begin to bear? Then cry to God who can carry you through.
God will be there to hear. He issues this invitation in Isaiah 1:18, "Come now, let us reason together." This invitation is an assurance that God wants to hear your song, whatever its theme.
