Lent – Tuesday – March 29

Psalm 84:4

There are those occasions we work overtime to have fun. New Year’s Eve is one. People spend small fortunes and risk all their driving privileges to find a good party. Often, their searches end in vain or they party so much they have no recollection of it the next day. It may be possible to enjoy a happy New Year’s party, but you are more likely to come up short. The opposite is true when singing God’s praises in the house of the Lord. Standing shoulder to shoulder with other saints while bellowing a great hymn always fills the soul. Happy, indeed, are those who live in God’s house ever singing God’s praise.
Lord, fill me with joy when I sing your praise. Amen.
