Psalm 68:32 Sing unto God, ye kingdoms of the earth; O sing praises unto the Lord; Selah:
Singing has always been a big part of my life. I don’t ever remember a time I didn’t love singing. Even in Sunday School as a little boy, the teachers realized that I wanted to sing, and encouraged me to do so. In High School I had three hours of singing every day. Men’s Choir, School Choir, and a select group of eight called Madrigal Ensemble, that practiced and sang all over representing the school. I sang in Michigan State’s Honor Choir for two years, and received several awards at Soloist competitions while in School. My love for music however, also led me into the world, playing a singing in the bars and nightclubs. I followed what most everyone else did in those places, drinking and doing drugs. It was a lifestyle that always wanted more. Bigger stages, more money, and a better high. Instead, it cost me my friends and family. When I got saved, God put a new song in my heart. I now sing for an audience of one. One pastor who had me sing in his church told another preacher, “Frank doesn’t care if there are ten people or a thousand, he just loves to sing.” I now lead our Church Choir, and have the joy of preaching and singing praises to the Lord in ours, and many other churches.
I must admit, I’m still looking forward to singing in a bigger choir someday. A choir filled with Heavens Harmonies. Until then, I will just do as the Psalmist says, “Sing unto God, … O sing praises unto the Lord.”
Someday, you’ll sing with me in heaven’s choir if you’re saved. You won’t be able to help yourself. You’ll just have to sing. Might be a good idea to start practicing here on earth. You don’t need a stage or a large audience. God is your audience of one.
Is there a new song in your heart?
