“Any man can sing in the day. When the cup is full, man draws inspiration from it. When wealth rolls in abundance around him, any man can praise the God who gives a plenteous harvest… The difficulty is for music to swell forth when no wind is stirring. It is easy to sing when we can read the notes by daylight; but he is skillful who sings when there is not a ray of light to read by — who sings from the heart… Lay me upon the bed of languishing, and how shall I then chant God’s high praises, unless He Himself give me the song? No, it is not in man’s power to sing when all is adverse, unless an altar-coal shall touch his lip… Then, since our Maker gives ‘songs in the night’ (Job 35:10), let us wait upon Him for the music.” ~Charles Spurgeon
I read this this morning and my heart was so moved, I had to share. I am so grateful for the song in my heart! It isn’t meant for me alone and thankfully it comes along with the desire to share. I guess it really is the gift that keeps on giving. I am really feeling overwhelmed with gratitude these days. I suppose that is the way you are supposed to feel during this season but it still feels quite profound. There are no words but THANK YOU!
