Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lantern to my feet and a light upon my path.
Music is my heartbeat.
Many of us know the powerful song by Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith: “Thy Word.” Did the melody just skip across your mind? If you know it and like it, sing it. Hum it, whisper it, belt it out! And if “Thy Word” isn’t the song for you, what is your song? It can be cathartic to make some noise and remind ourselves that God placed us on this indescribably amazing earth to live and love, to be loud and joyous, to make choices and to mess stuff up. We are here to follow Jesus on the way of love. Whatever path you take, Jesus will light it for you.
MOVING FORWARD: Sing your favorite song in the shower today. Sing as if only you and God are listening!
