Music and Faith

Sing For Jesus, Sing For God
     Heavenly Father created all sorts of amazing, beautiful things: trees, birds, the sky, grass...dirt. I like dirt. It is fun..anyway! He created all sorts of natural wonders for us. One of my favorites is music. Oh how I love, love love love, music! He does too. He even had a special family group who were called to be musicians in the Old Testement. They were the sons of Asaph (1 Chronicles 25:1). How cool would it be if the prophet asked you to play the music at the tabernacle?? It would be so awesome! You know what is even cooler? You can.
   God loves music from everyone. He doesn't care if you sing well, or if you sing bad! It doesn't matter if you sound like a lovely little blue bird or a cat that just fell into a pool! Just sing! He loves it! Doctrine and Covenants 25:12 "For my soul delighteth in the song of the heart; yea, the song of the righteous is a prayer unto me, and it shall be answered with a blessing upon their heads." God loves hearing music. So sing to Him!
   One of my happiest places is anywhere with my guitar. Just me and the music, singing what I want. Music speaks to me. It speaks to Heavenly Father too, so I invite you to sing for Him and Jesus!

  1. Hymns are one of my favorite ways to invite and feel the Spirit. I especially love singing and listening to Christmas songs during the holidays!
