When are you most happy? Content? Calm? Are you like David and know God’s closeness and approval through music?
There is a continual musical theme throughout the Bible. From God speaking the world/universe into order (Which can also be translated ‘singing’.) to the Heavenly Host at the birth of Christ, to the massed choirs of Heaven singing at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. From Bach to Mozart to Beethoven…Casting Crowns to Selah to Matt Maher it’s all pleasing to Him.
God loves a good song! For Him. To Him. About Him. He has surrounded Himself with choirs of angels. He hears the beauty, joy, peace, sadness, melancholy, and delight of each note and sound. He loves it!
Abba, hear my song. Let each note, each phrase, each verse be pleasing to Your ears. Let my life be a continual song of praise to You! Make it so, Lord!
Blessings to you and yours!

Hi Marie – Thanks so much for sharing with the Let’s Get Real party. Hope you’re having a great week.
As a musician, I love this post, and your prayer at the end resonated with me. Thank you for sharing this with us at Grace & Truth!
Marie, I love singing. My kids and I sing all time. They don’t recognize my joyful noise as anything more than praise and joyful singing. They only hear mommy sound like an angel. Their so sweet. Thank you for sharing with us at Sitting Among Friends on Wednesdays. I look forward to seeing you again next week.
I have great memories of singing in the car with my sisters and parents. There is probably no noise more favorable to God than the voices of the Saints. I’ve included your blog on the Blog Hops page. Blessings to you and yours! Marie
