Spread the love

“The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.”  (Psalm 65:8 NIV)

Jesus has the power to make you a singer.  Not only will you be singing, they will be songs of joy all day long.  Our lives are our song, we determine what we sing and who our conductor will be.  When we give Jesus the baton, we can sing like never before. Casting Crowns has a song called Lifesong.  I have always loved the lyrics:

Let my lifesong sing to you

I want to sign your name

To the end of this day

Lord led my heart was true

Let my lifesong sing to you

When Jesus becomes our conductor, our lifesong will be full of joy.

Our lifesong begins the minute we wake up in the morning.  The chorus of our song is defined by who we give the baton to each day.  If we hand it to Jesus, no matter what our circumstances are, we will sing songs of joy.  Unfortunately, most of the time we don’t pass the baton. We hold onto it, afraid to let it go.  We write words on it: worry, fear, anxiety, sadness. We ruminate on them over and over again. Our lifesong doesn’t sing a note, our thoughts are too heavy to carry a tune.  Let go of the baton, give it to Jesus. Let Him be the conductor of your life.

Lauren Daigle has handed the baton to Jesus.  She is a platinum crossover musician because she is following Him, completely.  And her songs weren’t always at number one. In fact, she was cut twice from American Idol, not making it into the final round of 24 contestants.  Yet she continued to sing a lifesong of joy. Lauren’s heart for the Lord can be seen by all as she sings her lifesong back to Him. 

If you tell Alexa to play the Lauren Daigle playlist, you’ll hear Lauren describe what each song means to her.  When she talks about “You Say,” she explains how it became her song she sings over herself every night.  She uses the words to remind her of who she is, daily. They help her sing her lifesong of joy.  Let her lyrics remind you of who you are:

You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing

You say I am strong when I think I am weak

You say I am held when I am falling short

When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours

And I believe, oh I believe 

What You say of me 

I believe

The only thing that matters now is everything You think of me

In You I find my worth, in You I find my identity, 

Question of the Day:

Who is holding the baton in your life?
