Praise – A Duet With Jesus

Creek at Hickory Run

I try to walk daily. Often as I walk I will softly sing songs of praise. A few days ago, as I happily strolled and sang, I heard another singer down the road a stretch. He was a jogger, with earphones, singing along to the tune. Suddenly, he let out a happy whoohoo in the midst of the song, and I smiled with happiness at the joy in his voice. The thought of his unabashed singing has uplifted me many times throughout the week.

I love this Bible verse: “For he (Jesus) says in the book of Psalms, ‘I will talk to my brothers about God my Father, and together we will sing his praises.’ ” Hebrews 12:2 (The Living Bible)  I like to think that when I sing songs of praise I am singing a duet with Jesus. Singing songs of Praise and Thanksgiving often ignites the presence of God within my life. It doesn’t matter if I harrumph along like a frog or trill melodious as a bird. The Lord God will inhabit the songs of his people.

I wonder how the world would change if people all around the world would stop throughout the day, lift up their voices in songs of praise, and sing a duet with Jesus.

  1. Kathy,
    I re-read this post today and was noticing how long our friendship has been. Its been a year already. Kathy, these days I have taken to praising saying ” Thank you, Jesus”, even as I drive a car. I am trying to make this my daily practice.

  2. I like the old hymns to sing along as I feel they have great tunes- as to the lyrics maybe the present day songs are more meaningful but the old hymns like What a Friend, Silent Night, Showers of Blessings and so on have their own charm.

  3. Me too, i like to sing a christian or worship song, and we play also in the dvd player, i sang together, all i think that i will live soon together with Jesus, coz our life here is just temporary, so that we need to give thank and pray the Lord our God all the time, and reading HIS WORD everyday, Godbless to us.
