Psalm 49:4 
”I turn my ear to a proverb; I explain my riddle with a lyre.“ (CSB)

”I listen carefully to many proverbs and solve riddles with inspiration from a harp.“ (NLT)

There is something about a song. It says more than its words convey. Emotions are amplified as musicians play. First notes cause a body to sway. 

Songs are blue; songs are true. Songs tell stories about me and you.

Songs are bright, bubbly, and light. Songs help us through a night.

Songs are moody and maudlin. Songs say, “We’re all in.”

Songs have listened. Songs have learned. Songs report the sighs of the spurned.

Songs have meaning more than expressed. Songs soothe brokenness best.

I will listen for the unspoken in the lyrics and melodies, rhythms and rhymes of the songs on repeat in my heart and my mind. 

Our Father, you gift us songs. They teach us. They empower us. They comfort us. They express deep emotion. Thank you for these wonderful gifts. How would we fully express our hurt and hangups? How could we adequately declare our thanksgiving and praise? Amen.

Daily D – Ezekiel 43:1-5

Ezekiel 43:1-5 He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of a huge torrent, and the earth shone with his glory. The vision I saw was like the one I had seen when he came to destroy the city, and like the ones I had seen by the Chebar Canal. I fell facedown. The glory of the Lord entered the temple by way of the gate that faced east. Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the inner court, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.

Daily D – Ezekiel 37:3

Ezekiel 37:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I replied, “Lord God, only you know.”

Daily D – Ezekiel 36:26-27

Ezekiel 36:26, 27 “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will remove your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. I will place my Spirit within you and cause you to follow my statutes and carefully observe my ordinances.”

Daily D – Psalm 40:6-8

Psalm 40:6-8
You do not delight in sacrifice and offering;
you open my ears to listen.
You do not ask for a whole burnt offering or a sin offering. Then I said, “See, I have come;
in the scroll it is written about me.
I delight to do your will, my God,
and your instruction is deep within me.”

Daily D – Psalm 39:4-5

Psalm 39:4, 5
“LORD, make me aware of my end
and the number of my days
so that I will know how short-lived I am.
In fact, you have made my days just inches long,
and my life span is as nothing to you.
Yes, every human being stands as only a vapor.”
