Ephesians 5:19 speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music in your hearts to the Lord,

Singing and making music in our hearts.  Music is a beautiful way to praise God, to think on scripture verses and to experience the fullness of His joy in our hearts.  When we sing aloud in church we sometimes go on automatic because we know the songs so well we don’t have to really think about them.  When we pay attention to what we are singing it can stay in our hearts and we can hear it as we walk through our days.  I sing in my head a lot.  I hear the words and the tunes.  It lifts me up when I face trials.  It reminds me how to reach out to others.  The season of Advent is upon us.  Chirstmas music is in the air.  A good bit of the music is very worldly.  That doesn’t need to keep us from singing and hearing the beautiful carols about the season of Advent..  Since you are reading this you have an internet connection.  I encourage you to look up some of your favorite Christmas caroles and find out about who wrote the words and how they came about.  The songs have a lot more meaning when we know the situations that gave them birth.  Let us make Advent a season of beautiful words and music to our God in honor of His Gift, Jesus, to us.
