Morning Coffee 10/26/14 Don’t Knock It Till You Try It (The Hymns and older worship songs)
“Come, let us sing to the lord ! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him.” (Psalms 95:1-2 NLT)
Good Morning! God has hit the pause button on our series the God element. During the past week I have been writing with instrumental hymns playing in the background. Two songs, a well known hymn and worship song spoke to my spirit during this time. A Piano version of As The Deer and a piano version of Amazing Grace.
I have heard and sung both many times since I was a child. But now that I have matured in Christ and gone through some storms, I truly understand them and what they truly mean. I am not knocking any of the awesome worship songs of today. But there is something about hearing the melody of As the deer (it is playing right now as I write this devotion) being played on the piano and hearing the sweet lyrics that were ingrained in me since I was a child.
“As the deer panteth for the water So my soul longeth after Thee You alone are my heart's desire And I long to worship You.” Wow! Awesome! Then there is Amazing Grace! “Amazing grace! How sweet the sound, That saved a wretch; like me!
I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see.” That song is two hundred plus years old and the words alone put me in such awe of God and how awesome He is!
At the bottom is Amazing Grace instrumental. Play the song, but don’t listen to it as you normally would. Sit back don’t sing aloud first let the music play and the lyrics come into your mind. Think of how far God has brought you, you don’t have to have a rags to riches story in order to appreciate this song and what it means. This song is about all of us! Hymns and older worship songs, don’t knock it till you try it!!!
Much Love & God Bless
