Words to SPARK your Heart-Song from our co-founder Sherry Douglas.
#uplifting #positive #encouraging #motivational
Hi everyone! I’m Sherry Douglas – co-founder of Heart-Song. Last week I shared Psalm 28:7 with you. Part of that Psalm talks about praising God with our songs. I encouraged us to look for ways to sing our own unique songs to give him praise.
When I talk about singing your song, I’m referring to you being the best possible you that you can be. That you’ll be true to who you were created to be and then positively impact others.
It’s not unusual, especially during times of crisis like we’re in now, to feel as though we have no clue what song we’re to be singing. Our world has been turned upside down. Everything is different than it was just a few weeks ago. We’ve had to make countless shifts in our everyday lives.
So, if you find yourself asking, “What IS my unique song?” You’re not alone! Lots of us are asking that kind of question. Our unique songs change with what is taking place in the world around us, with our individual experiences, and with what our hearts have been touched by.
Because many of us have more expendable time than usual, this is a good time for self-reflection, but shifting can definitely be a process. Allow the time needed to hear the new rhythm, tempo, and new lyrics of what you’ll be singing. Maybe you’ll discover your song for the first time. Wouldn’t that be awesome!
For some, the shift may not be in knowing your unique songs, but in how and where you’re going to sing them. This can be an exciting time to put thought to new ways of singing; new ways of being your unique self.
In Isaiah 43:19, the Lord says: “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
For some of us during this time, we may feel we’re in the wilderness or wasteland, not knowing our song, not knowing what’s coming next. Even so, we have the assurance he’s doing a new thing in us and making a new way for us. Knowing this and grabbing hold, can give us the strength and the courage to sing…let’s all just keep singing! This is the word of the Lord. See you next time.
