Marker Moments

Psalm 89:1  I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.

Singing praises to God can do God’s work when other avenues have failed.  Music is a precious gift from God, planted in the depths of our souls, then set free from our lips to reach God in Heaven, to bring glory to His Name.

Think about the importance of music in your own life? Music softens our hearts and allows God to speak to us. We receive solace, encouragement, and renewed strength rom the truths of God set to music.

When was the last time you sang "to the LORD" in unashamedly corporate worship? Did you worry about what the person next to you, or in front of you, or behind you in church thought of you worship?  Go ahead and sing. Go ahead and cry. There’s nothing wrong with that.

Even if we don’t have a pretty voice, we need to be a people who love to sing… because we have a reason to sing.
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for Your priceless gift of salvation to me.  Thank You for patiently waiting for me to accept this gift.  The price You paid is more than this world could ever equal.  I thank You for opening my heart to Your goodness, Your kindness and the love You have for me.  Help me to help others see the priceless gift You hold out in Your Precious Hands.  When I doubt, help me to be strong, when I am scared and worried, send me Your Holy Spirit to lift me up.  When I am weak, restore to me vigilance in the uncertain times of this life.  I will hold on and never turn away from Your goodness for I know You will carry me through to victory one day. I pray this through Your name, Jesus Christ
