shut up and SING!

When i was in Jr. High, we used to listen to alot of Amy Grant on the church bus going to events... Remember the song "Sing your praise to the Lord" the words said "stand up and sing one more Hallelujah"  but we used to sing "Shut up and sing one more Hallelujah!"  And now I'm thinking... such wisdom from Jr highers being silly... 

When I'm tired, it's easy to get that overwhelmed feeling... and sometimes life happens and we feel like we just don't have anything to give... It is easy and even natural to complain or to whine... to this I say "Shut up and sing one more Hallelujah!" today :)  It is theologically correct... In all things we are supposed to praise Him... In all things we are supposed to thank Him... Today, praying for my friends, my heart feels heavy... there is so much going on... so many needs... and I have a choice to make. I can get cranky or depressed OR I can praise the One who holds us close... the One who has it all under control. (even though things may seem out of control). so... a few minutes ago, I got out my guitar & sang & sang & sang... until it was worship... until I meant what I was singing... "I open my heart and let my spirit worship yours. I open up my mouth and let a song of praise come forth... worthy, you are worthy."  He is indeed worthy of all my praise. He is worthy of all your praise!  and it changes us... it lifts us into His presence and brings my attitude into a much better place.  In the words of wise jr highers... "shut up and sing one more hallelujah!"  just sing!
