eSeed: Sing The Clouds Away

Read Matthew 26:17-30

One day I visited a home and I heard a woman wail, “Poor me.”

“What’s the matter?” I asked.

“My mom had a little trouble,” said her daughter, “and she’s having a pity-party.”

But the true expression of a Christian isn’t a sigh, it’s a song.

Look at our Lord. He was about to be betrayed with a kiss and brutally crucified. And His disciples were about to be scattered and slain. How did they spend that night? Sighing? No, singing. The Savior led them in a song.

Are you facing dark days? Don’t have a pity-party and pout, try praising. Turn care into prayer, and sing the clouds away.

Prayer: Deliver us, Father, from our darkness and doubt. Give us the strength to do what we cannot do and to be what we cannot be. Help us to daily love Thee more and happily serve Thee better: through Christ. Amen.
