“The Lord’s love never ends; His mercies never stop. They are new every morning…”


Lamentation 3:22-23


We woke up this morning and we were still breathing – every one of those breaths is a brand new mercy – an undeserved gift flowing straight from the heart of our Father. And every single one is an invitation for us to worship.


One thing I love about singing is that it’s such a mindful way of giving those breaths back to God. Most of the time we’re not really conscious of the function of inhaling and exhaling, let alone being mindful enough to purposely turn those constant gifts of life into offerings of thanks and praise. But when we sing in worship it is different - we take in the breath He supplies, through the lungs He gave us, and then very consciously and mindfully exhale them straight back to Him in love and praise.


Both the Old and New Testaments tell us of a ‘new song’. In Psalm 40:3 the worshipper declares, “He put a new song in my mouth”. Then skip to the last book of the bible and in Revelation 5:9 we read, “and they sang a new song.” The fact is, we will always have new songs, because there will always be new mercies. The goodness and mercy God will surely follow us not only through this earthly life, but for all eternity – and we shall forever be finding new ways to tell Jesus just how much we treasure Him, in all His goodness and greatness.


There will always be a new song to be sung – for His worth is so great, and His mercies are new every morning.


Today, let’s just rare back and sing. Why? Because He is worthy!
