New Song

Do you, like me, need a new song? The type of tune that will bring you stamina amongst the busyness of life?

When emails flash, and technology beeps. When deadlines demand and the phone rings. When children argue and your temper is hot. When loved one’s are sick and you’re playing nurse. When marriage is in the dumps and you’re digging your way out, when hopes are dashed, or your words cut another deeply; When work asks for more than you can give, when the laundry sits in piles and the grime which rings your bath, begs for you to scrub it off-again, when your husband is on another work trip or you’re the girl wishing she had a husband to go on that work trip, when life is pulling you in many directions and the chaos is all so very near, all so very real.

Do you, like me, need a new song?

When we sing a song and we know it by heart, then its lyrics pour out of our mouth. They have been rehearsed, memorised and they flow easily.

What song do you easily sing each day?

Are your lyrics the type that fill a situation with joy and goodness or are they filled with pessimism infecting and damaging those around you?

What we rehearse fills our heart and what lives in our heart flows from our mouth.

Our thoughts, our words are normally wrapped around habits, habits of thinking and the way we engage life.

Habits can imprison us, keep us caged if we are recycling old behaviours,

OR

Habits can set us free giving us a new lease on life.

The song which I’ve begun to sing each day has two simple lines which I believe will set any Servant Girl free.

Free from circumstance which attempts to dominate behaviour.

It has become my mantra, my life line, rebooting my old pattern of thinking so it creates a calm peaceful woman seeing goodness in all situations.

For He, the Master has a divine plan carved for my unique journey and this provides a foundation of love and love casts out all my fear.

And so I sing,

“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,
His faithful love endures forever.”
(Psalm 136:1 NLV)

“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,
His faithful love endures forever.”

When the grime sticks and your heart becomes overwhelmed,
“Give thanks to the Lord for His is good,
His faithful love endures forever.”

When frustrations bring you to a point of being fed up, and you become a wild sea filled with emotion, pause,turn your eyes to Him and whisper if you have to-
“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,
His faithful love endures forever.”

When your heart aches and pain crushes, make it a choice.
“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,
His faithful love endures forever.”

When your enemy strikes and the sting hits you unaware,
“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,
His faithful love endures forever.”

When the world has lost colour and despair encompasses,
“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,
His faithful love endures forever.”

When loneliness fills your heart,
“Give thanks to the Lord for He is good,
His faithful love endures forever.”

You Daughter of the most High King, need to understand that the God of the Heavens pursues you with His unconditional love. He is willing and available for you at any moment.

May you sing a song of love back to Him glorifying His existence with your words and actions.
