Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen…
I can’t imagine a world without music.
Some events in my life, I would associate with a song. Hearing a particular song could trigger memories into flashing back.
When Jesus was born in a manger, the angels in heaven sang. If I had been present on that occasion, among the shepherds to whom the angels proclaimed the good news about Gods ultimate gift to man - our Salvation – I’m sure I would be moved into tears of overwhelming joy. And if I had been one of the shepherds who had laid their eyes on the holy infant in that humble dwelling, I might have told God that my life has been fulfilled and would be ready to die.
God has added another year to my life. I want this year to be full of songs praising and worshipping God. Thanking Him for all the blessings He bestowed on me despite my sinfulness. Thanking Him for this life - a life of continuous struggles as I follow Jesus, stumbling along the narrow way, but picking up myself again and again, and decisively keep on moving forward. Maybe at the end of the road, angels are waiting to sing for me and my victory.
