“…let the Spirit stimulate your souls. Express your joy in singing among yourselves psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making music in your hearts for the ears of God!” (Ephesians 5: 18-19)
It’s always a good time to sing. God, the expressive Spirit of Life, is ever-active and present. This power and goodness is always right where we are, providing us with needed energy and peace and guidance. This loving Spirit is within us, ready to invigorate and stir us into a larger sense of Life and Love.
So, be eager to sing and praise in your heart or out loud, and remember to let the Source of that song also be its audience. We can give up gladly the willful sense of personal control and allow that natural and grateful song to well up in us. We know Love because we are Love. We know Life because we are Life. We can accept these great facts of being and let the praises begin.
These songs to God, acknowledging His presence and power, will bring healing into our lives and to the lives of others. As we actively engage in Spirit’s truest intent of joy and celebration of good, we feel it more deeply and share it more freely. The songs multiply and become the very substance of everything we do, whether work or play, because we have let that Spirit stimulate our souls—awaken us to the fact of divine Love’s presence, purpose, power, and harmony.
