“Sing the praises of the Lord, you his faithful people; praise his holy name.
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favour lasts a lifetime;
weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”
The people of God have always sung! We sing when our eyes are fixed, not on the near horizon of our current circumstances, but the eternal joy of knowing God!
Listen to these words by Joni Eareckson Tada:
“Whatever troubles are weighing you down are not chains. They are featherweight when compared to the glory yet to come. With a sweep of a prayer and the praise of a child’s heart, God can strip away any cobweb.”
