A Singing Heart

16 05 2012

So then, be very careful how you live. Don’t live like foolish people but like wise people. Make the most of your opportunities because these are evil days. So don’t be foolish, but understand what the Lord wants. Don’t get drunk on wine, which leads to wild living. Instead, be filled with the Spirit by reciting psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs for your own good. Sing and make music to the Lord with your hearts. Always thank God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Ephesians 5:15-20

Living according to God’s plan for our lives will allow our hearts to sing. It brings about an image of incredible peace and joy that is pleasing to God. We receive so many cues from the world that may not be based on God’s word or His pathway for living a blessed life. Our passage today is reminder of the importance of seeking God’s direction according to His word and His will for our lives. We need His wisdom to set the essential priorities for successful living. A prioritization of our time, our effort and our resources with our Heavenly Father as the lead creates the framework for a fulfilled life. I am so thankful to God for His blessings to me. I pray today for His wisdom to flow freely in my thinking and my decisions. And that I will have courage to follow Him where He leads. Creating the divine order in our priorities leads to a joyful heart that sings.
