Sing a New Song

On the morning of our 10th anniversary, I proudly presented Kathy with a special card I had remembered to buy the day before. It was an expensive one that had gold-embossed raised letters. The message on it was very romantic and meaningful. It was the 10th year in a row that I had not forgotten to get her a card. Without reading it she sighed, put it back down on the table and said, “Just once, it would be nice to have something YOU said instead of something you paid a total stranger to say.” Ouch! There was no thank you and no passionate kiss! That evening I was in my time of devotion with the Lord. I was singing the latest song that had already sold over a million copies when Kathy’s response to my card came flooding back through my mind. It was as though the Lord was saying, “I would like to hear a song from you that was not written by someone else.” Ps.98:1 says, “Sing to the Lord a new song”. The Hebrew meaning of the term “new” is “something fresh, a new thing.”  In other words, a NEW SONG which is sung to God is one that has not been sung by anyone else. A NEW SONG is one of spontaneity and delight.  You are the only one who can sing that NEW SONG to God because you are the only one who truly knows what God means to you.
