“On your feet now—applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence. ” Psalm 100:1, MSG
Sing yourselves into his presence
Jump up onto my feet!
Clap my hands!
The Lord is present!!
Tilt my head back and laugh aloud!
Dance with glee and abandonment!
The Lord is here!
I don’t have to worry the God is gone
I cast my fear away that He can’t love my unworthiness.
The Lord is full of grace and love!
When discouragement overwhelms me
When hope disappears
I will sing myself into Your presence.
Music magically melts my masks and draws me into my Father’s arms –
To be held
To be forgiven
To be loved.
Nothing separates us from the love of God
But when the shiny decoys of the world and my blinding ego block my sight,
I once again find You, Lord, though laughter and singing.
