Song of Songs 2:11-13 New International Version (NIV)
11 See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
12 Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree forms its early fruit;
the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.
Arise, come, my darling;
my beautiful one, come with me.
THE TIME OF SINGING ~
Go head rejoice......
Philippians 4:4-9 New International Version (NIV)
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. 9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
THE TIME OF SINGING ~
Have you ever heard this: Music calms the savage beast? Music takes the soul to higher places. Think about a time when music just relaxed you and you felt peace or joy. I love listening to worship music, jazz music, Motown music and the list goes on. I know that God works through music and I love it. I often find myself singing in my car, in the shower or just around my house. I was told when I was little never to sing again by a teacher, so I was cautious of who heard me over my life. Never let anyone take your voice from singing. Go ahead and make a joyful noise the Bible says:
Psalm 98:4 King James Version (KJV)
Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
As I get older, I view life different. I do my best to live in this day that God has made, plan for tomorrow and let go what I can't change. My prayers continue for you, your family and friends. Purpose this a good day.
