…what we see is that anyone united with the Messiah gets a fresh start, is created new. The old life if gone, a new life burgeons!
II Corinthians 5:17 The Message
I heard someone point out recently how repetition can be dulling which is why romance with its fresh experiences of love can be so appealing.
Perhaps that’s why God woos us with new mercies, new wine, new life.
And the best way to respond to the refreshment He lavishes on us?
Sing a new song of praise to Him;
play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy.
Sing a new song to the Lord,
for He has done wonderful deeds.
Yes, that’s right:
I will sing a new song to you, my God;
on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you. Psalm 144:9
I’m grateful for the creative souls who write the new songs for me to sing. One that I’ve been enjoying these past few months is “Great are You Lord” by a folk/acoustic duo, All Sons and Daughters on their eponymous album, All Sons and Daughters [which is filled with wonderful songs]. Take a moment and enjoy the beautiful music video.
I’d also love to learn what new songs you’ve been singing these days. Leave a comment and share with us!
