Day 18 – Make a Joyful Noise

For my entire life I have enjoyed singing. My mom has pictures of me as a little girl standing on a stool and singing into the vacuum cleaner as my microphone. I started out with confidence but the older I got that confidence was replaced with fear. Fear of failure, fear that I wasn’t good enough, that I don’t have a voice. But the Lord showed me that I was believing that lie for too long.

This morning I had the wonderful opportunity to help lead worship at church even though my voice isn’t 100%. I absolutely love the privilege it is to worship on Sunday mornings when the Lord is present in such a unique way among His people. There’s nothing like it this side of heaven. I am so grateful that the Lord set me free from fear and I can freely and joyfully worship Him in Spirit and in Truth.

Songs of Praise

In that day you will say:

“I will praise you, Lord.
    Although you were angry with me,
your anger has turned away
    and you have comforted me.
Surely God is my salvation;
    I will trust and not be afraid.
The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my song;
    he has become my salvation.”
With joy you will draw water
    from the wells of salvation.

In that day you will say:

“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done,
    and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things;
    let this be known to all the world.
Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion,
    for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”

Isaiah 12
