Singing in Church

I read an article in a recent issue of Calvary Messenger and the article was on the subject of singing at church. The title of the article is "Melody in Your Heart" by Timothy J. Meyers of Keysville,GA. The main point of the article was what is our focus when we are singing. Are we focusing on the music? Are we thinking about how good or not so good our singing is? Do we get irritated with singing the same songs? Do we get distracted while singing?

 I confess I sometimes get distracted during our singing time. I'll wonder if a song should be sung faster or slower. I get irritated if a song tune is changed from the original and I could go on.
After reading Timothy's article I really need to sing from my heart. Keeping my focus on the Lord and the words that I am singing. I believe this will bring honor to the Lord.

  1. I have a tendency to close my eyes when I sing to shut out visual distractions so I can focus better on Who I am supposed to be singing to!

    1. Michelle,
      That's a good idea. I never thought about that. Thanks!

  2. One of the things that helps me is to change all the "Him"s to "You"s, so that I'm not just singing about the Lord, but TO the Lord. kwim?

    It makes it more personal, my own song to Him, and I have to focus on the words and meaning. Maybe try that? It usually leaves me with tears, I get so drawn in.

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
