Sing Your Way Through Suffering

Last week in my post we talked about the reasons for suffering in our world. During these times and in all times of life, whether pleasant or difficult, we need to pray, read Scripture, and develop our relationship with the Lord.  Today we talk about the wonderful place singing has in times of trial.  Singing can be a source of comfort.  It also lifts us up and honors God, if we praise Him in the midst of suffering. 

Many of you are suffering the ill-effects of the corona virus and/or the repercussions of the stay at home policies connected with the virus.  Some people have lost jobs or have their hours cut back.  Many of us are missing attending church every week.  Live stream online services are wonderful, but it is not the same thing as worshiping with God's people in person each week.  Many people are also feeling isolated in their own homes or in a nursing home.  My heart goes out to family caregivers and their loved ones at this time.  How isolated, unsupported, and alone they must feel.

Joni Eareckson Tada writes about this in the below article.  She talks about the value and blessing of singing though our sufferings.  Just click on the below link.  It will be worth your time.
