A new song

He has given me a new song to sing of praises to our God…” Psalm 40:3

Knowing Christ adds a whole new dimension to life. As the beauty of his truths grow in clarity, old thought patterns and beliefs fade away. There’s a new song rising in hearts open to Him.

This new song sounds different. It speaks of love that conquers and peace beyond all understanding, of no condemnation and comfort for the soul. It speaks of life filled to the brim and deep purpose—a higher calling for which to live.

Let the new song ring loud and clear. Let the old song be drowned out by strands of joy and peace, of hope and love eternal. Let the old song of fear and regret be silenced. Forever.

Lord, sometimes the old song threatens to take over. Let it be silenced. And as the new song swells may it drown out the old refrains. And may a song of praise ever rise to you.
