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 – Isaiah 1:18-20

Isaiah 1:18-20 “Come, let’s settle this,” says the Lord. “Though your sins are scarlet, they will be as white as snow; though they are crimson red, they will be like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land. But if you refuse and rebel, you will be devoured by the sword.” For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”
