i was asked to perform a special item for youth group this weekend. and i think i am going to sing a song. i have been thinking a lot about what i should play. there are several songs going on my mind at the moment but i have not been able to pick one yet. they are all great songs…but they just do not sound right.
i wanted the song i sing to magnify the Lord’s great love and bring encouragement to the audience. i do not want the song i am good at playing or which i can climb the notes. my only desire is to let Him be glorified through my act of worship.
after going through a couple of songs, i put down my guitar and laid down on my bed. eyes closed, i tried to listen to His voice. and it came…softly but distinctly…”it’s the song of humbleness that I am pleased with.”
it was startling but very sure. i still have no idea what the song of humbleness is…but i just know that it has to come from deep down in my heart…with the right attitude.
the performance is not about me or how beautiful i can sing. it is about God and His mercy.
and…wow…suddenly, just now, i see. it’s this song, people. singing of His love everyday…through all my life.
