One morning on my way to work I began to despair about my inability to worship God with a beautiful voice. I so love Him that I want to be able to worship Him in every way that is available. So, I would sing and lament that it didn’t sound pretty enough for Him. As I drove along praying such thoughts to God—my loving, encouraging Daddy—He spoke to me very quietly. What I felt Him say to me was this… “When you sing from your heart, you are worshiping me. I don’t care how you think you sound; to Me, you sound beautiful, because I’m listening to your heart. Please keep singing to Me.”
I still listen with awe and a tiny bit of jealousy when someone sings in our church. When I hear a beautiful worship song on the radio, I wish I had the voice to share that song with the world for Him. What I’m learning is that I don’t need to sing to the world about God. I need to sing to God about my love for Him. I’ll use the other abilities He has given me to share with the world about Him, because I love Him so that I cannot be silent. After all, isn’t all worship a beautiful song to our Father?
