An Invitation to Sing

Zechariah prophesies: “Sing and rejoice, O Daughter of Zion, for, lo, I come, and will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord.” (Zech 2:10)

Would any of us refuse such an invitation by the Lord to sing? If the act of singing will bring the Lord to dwell with me I want to be the first in line! See me waving my hand for a turn! Oops, wrong thinking. There is no line, no turns. We can all sing together. Lets do it now and bring him quickly.

I love that scripture. That is one that is on my list to calligraph and hang on the wall. The times when I feel the spirit the strongest are often while I am singing (or trying to sing).

Me too, Marquette. I always feel the spirit when I am truly singing, (not performing, since then all I am is self-conscious and scared!) I think the Lord gives us singing as a sort of "tool" to bring the spirit. And I think that it is interesting that when I am depressed, I do not feel like singing and can hardly make myself sing. That would be the enemy working I guess.

Thank you for visiting The Children Sing. Check back soon for more LDS Primary Singing Time Ideas!
