We live in a noisy world. Every day we are bombarded by social media, opinions of others, and the pressures of life. The world is constantly talking to us, and it is easy to let those voices dictate our day. Maybe a coworker has discouraged you or a friend has disappointed you. Life can certainly fill our hearts with many voices.
As Christ followers, it is important to cultivate God’s truth in our hearts. Psalm 40:3 says that God places His praises in our mouth. He gives us an internal ‘soundtrack’ of His grace in our lives, and it’s up to us to make sure that this is louder than the noise of our daily lives.
Don't miss the opportunity to worship each day. Meeting with God one-on-one, through daily prayer, reading, and worship will ultimately bring us closer to Him. Being close to Him means knowing His voice, His ways, and His truth. It's much like a true friend: the more you meet, the more familiar you become.
Where do you find yourself today? Are you only meeting with God one day a week or are you making an effort to daily meet with Him? He is ready to meet with you, strengthen and encourage you . As you listen to Song in My Heart, be encouraged that He knows exactly where you are and loves you no matter what. You can trust that every time you meet with Him, He will put a song in your heart to worship and ultimately know Him more!

“Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. Matthew 7:13-14 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/mat.7.13-14.NIV
The Choice of Trust I absolutely love referring to the Noah Webster’s 1828 Dictionary as many of Noah Webster's original word definitions contain references to the King James Bible itself; this was all before it was diluted into our contemporary dictionaries. Literally this is the definition found in that dictionary: TRUST , noun 1. Confidence; a reliance or resting of the mind on the integrity, veracity, justice, friendship or other sound principle of another person. He that "putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe." Proverbs 29:25 KJV 2. He or that which is the ground of confidence. ..."O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth. Psalms 71:5 KJV Trust is a confident expectation. Trust, like faith, is not a feeling. It is a choice. I love that “he that putteth his TRUST in the Lord shall be safe” part of the definition above. Safe? Hmmm? In this world we simply cannot put our trust into imperfect humans. There is only One that cannot fail or forsake us.
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments. Exodus 20:4-6 NIV https://bible.com/bible/111/exo.20.4-6.NIV
