Sing To HIM

 

Here are a couple of ideas and some encouragement I would like to pass on.  If you want to grow musically here are somethings you should try.  I do these myself.

1. Listen to various styles of music.  Be opened minded and  try to understand why there is a place for all styles.

2. Go to concerts.  You can learn so much and most singers have been inspired from some concert they attended.

3. Try to write a song.  Who cares if it hits the top 40.  Just try…God may have a surprise for you.  It’s a great exercise.

4. Take up an instrument.  It will help you with rhythm and creativity.  It will also give you a new reason for praising.

5. Go to Lifeway and buy an accompaniment track or two.  You might say, “I don’t sing solos.”  So what!  This is a great way to hear yourself alone and you can work on your tone and quality of your singing.  You might be surprised to find out that you could be a soloist.

6. Sing for your family.  Take that track or have someone play on the piano and sing for your kids or aunts and uncles.  You may encourage someone else.

7. Read through Psalms and try to apply.

8. Buy a shower radio.  You can’t beat the privacy and you can sing till you shrivel up like a prune.  Some of the most fun acoustics are in the shower.  We have radios  in both of our showers at home and I love to here my boys sing in there. 

9. Sing in the car as much as possible.  It will help relieve stress and also help you develop your singing chops.

10. Thank God for your voice, your ears and the ability to praise him.   We can praise him with all of our worship, but what a gift to be able to SING to him!!!

Therefore I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations; I will sing praises to your name.        2 Samuel 22:50
