Gratituesday - The Music Please


I love music.... Not just any music though.
I really like music that is encouraging, uplifting, and true.
I don't like the sad and mopey stuff... you know the kind where the dog dies and the wife's gone and life just isn't perfect. I don't like the fast and hard stuff where you can't even enjoy the words.
What I really like is a song that you can sing and brighten your day, or maybe somebody elses.
I have listened to a lot of music over the years, and some may say that I'm just getting old, so my tastes have changed, BUT... I like to say that I'm just getting wiser!
God has really shown me more and more the kind of music He enjoys. I love going to church and being refreshed by the music, just as much as the preaching. Have you ever really listened and understood, maybe even meditated, on the words of the songs we sing in our hymnals?
Today I am just grateful for good, Godly music. I'm thankful for the music that God uses to teach me and to encourage me. What is your favorite song to sing?

Hebrews 11:13,15,16

... These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off and were PERSUADED of them, and EMBRACED them, and CONFESSED that they were STRANGERS and PILGRIMS on the earth. For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country... But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
