  1. Miss Robin,

    I think the significance behind the “new” is to remind us to always be genuine. I personally don’t think there is nothing wrong with singing your favorite hymn or song again and again. But, we can easily find ourselves on “autopilot” and forget to really think about what we are saying and why we are saying it… We get so focused on one prayer that the rehearsed words fly out of our mouths before we notice it. We don’t have to hurry, we all have the same 24hr in a day and God is still there for every second of it. So, for me, I think it is good practice to try and make every prayer intentional and make every beginning and ending different. Same with music I don’t want to sing the same song continuously until it no longer holds the same meaning… I want my Lord and Savior to know that I mean what I say. Thank you for your encouragment today and the thought provoking question; it is always nice to be challenged for God’s glory! I pray you and your family, and all of the women of (in)courage have a blessed day.

    This side of Heaven,
    Summer Rae

  2. Robin,
    When I read your post, I thought, Greater Humility = Greater Hallelujah. When I really stop to take in what God has done for me and humble myself before Him, the greater my Hallelujah praise is for Him. The more He smooths off my rough edges, the greater my Hallelujah song rises to Him. Our family loves kitchen singing and dancing too. Now that my children are grown it’s me and the dog lol. I think the “new” song is one that comes from knowing our salvation is secure. Beforehand, our song would be a lament in our sins, but salvation gives us a whole new reason for singing. I also take that to mean a “new” song each and every day. As He greats us with new mercies every morning, so should our “new” song rise up to Him. Loved this….makes me want to crank up the tunes, sing, and praise Him 🙂
    Blessings,

  3. Robin,

    We should sing and dance new songs every day. Doing the same thing over and over can become rote & not praise worthy. You don’t think about what you are singing or saying. People should stop & listen to the words of the songs they are singing. Soak them up. Earlier this year my dad had dementia relapse. My first thought was great here I go again. To get me through those tough days I would play Stephen C. Chapman music & dance in my kitchen. Songs like: “Dive”, “Let Us Pray”, “Do Everything” “Love Take Me Over” & “Speechless” to name a few. It seemed to quiet myself & help me to praise God through this storm.

    Blessings 🙂
