Yesterday you had a lot of reading but today, because we are in the Songs of Accents, you have very little reading. Remember they are purposely short so they are easy to memorize. While you are hiking up the hill on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem you don’t have the time or the energy to get out your song book. You have to have all the songs you are going to sing in your head. My older daughter Baylee and I love to go hiking and sometimes when the conversation runs out we just decide to sing. Singing is a wonderful way for a family or community to bind themselves together.
Read: Psalms 121, 122, and 123
Questions to Consider:
- Have you ever felt like God was asleep? Write about that time in your journal.
- God is never asleep, God is always keeping watch, both now and forever. What do those words mean to you? How do those words make you feel?
Activity for the Day: In my words for the day I talked about singing. I encourage you to spend some time today singing or at least listening to some praise music. A few weeks ago David introduced us to a new song in worship, Graves into Gardens by Elevation Worship. I can’t wait until I can sing it on Saturday night and Sunday morning. I belt it out at home on my own. Click here for the live version or click here for an acoustic version
