“Sometimes hope must be sung.”
Truth. Hope is a powerful, yet a distant thing for many of us. In this season of Advent, we are invited to train ourselves to live in hope. And what better way to live in hope than to live in song. Sing a joyful noise in hope. Sing unto the Lord a new song. Sing like the song bird greets the morning sunrise, in hope of the new day. Sing with joyful hope and let your song lift in praise to God.
