And sometimes I hear a song that so touches the heart of me that I can't help but do both.
It doesn't matter so much if the song is old or new. It could tickle the funny bone or tug at the heartstrings.
It may even be that I've heard the song a hundred times before without any special connection. But when the Lord brings to mind a melody with lyrics that seem to have been written with my exact situation in mind, there is a quickening in the soul, and the heart soars.
I have been praising my awesome God all week with this one;
I pray I never get over the immensity of what He did for me.
I pray the same for you.
