Let the godly sing for joy to theLord;it is fitting for the pure to praise him. Praise the Lordwith melodies on the lyre; make music for him on the ten-stringed harp. Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp and sing with joy. For the word of theLordholds true, and we can trust everything he does. Psalm 33:1-4
Happy New Year to you!
Yes, even with COVID-19 still looming over our world, we can say HAPPY New Year!
Be encouraged to “make music for Him” and to “sing a new song of praise to Him” because we indeed can “trust everything He does.”
May we together celebrate all that’s behind and trust The Good Shepherd with all that’s ahead…
