Sept. 7 – Music washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.


Ever found yourself singing when you’re upset or mad? Probably not. The appropriate music should raise our spirits and give us a sense of well being.

Want to scratch the surface for hope? There are lots of references to music in the Bible. The first is found in Genesis 4:21-“His brother’s name was Jubal; he was the father of all those who play the lyre and pipe.”

The longest book in the Bible is its song book of Psalms.

James 5:13-“Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone among you cheerful? He is to sing praises.”

Next time you catch yourself humming or singing, give thought to why, and give thanks to Him  for your “why.”

About bshiveofhope

I have been lead to hold a number of differnt occupations over my working years. Surprisingly, most of which I could have never forcast for myself. They include- Nurse, wife, mother, florist, nana, writer, custodian, and now blogger. With these vocations have come many life experiences. I love catchy words and phrases.They are easy to remember and when shared can be a source of encouragement and hope. The meanings are not new their counterparts can be found in the reliable book of life, the Bible. We were made for community so let's build each other up with hope and encouragment.
