My Song

“The Lord, the Lord, is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.” Isaiah 12:2b

Are you hurting? Can’t feel a song within your heart? During a recent time of sadness and hurt feelings, God brought the verse above to my attention and reminded me that He is all I need. My joy, my reason to sing, does not depend on others. He is my song.

If you’re hurting today, I pray that you will turn to Him and let Him be your strength. I pray that you will let Him be your song.

“Lift up your heads, O you gates; be lifted up, you ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.” Psalm 24:7
