    Well said Amy! What I take away from what you’ve said here is that it is substance over form. When someone insists that a particular form of singing must be followed, they sacrifice substance. My mother who now sings with your Mom in heaven, was absolutely tone deaf. She would sing loudly in church and uses several keys to do it. It was painful to hear but she didn’t care (being tone deaf she didn’t even know she was off key). She was singing joyfully to her true Husband who I believe was well-pleased.

    Thanks for sharing your heart about song.

    Well said! I grew up in a musical family, sang in the church choir and praise team, sang solos, etc.but it wasn’t till cancer robbed me of my voice for a time and later caused me to stop singing for a year that I realized how special the gift of voicing my praise through song really was/is. It is in those dark places of our lives that God is able to shed light into our souls in ways we never could have imagined…sometimes He uses the gift of song to help us “sing a new song” of praise.That new song is a reflection of the deepening trust in and recognition of a love so incomprehensible that all we can do is accept, throw up our hands and worship no matter what our circumstances. We don’t have to understand the circumstances to peacefully rest cradled in our Father’s arms as he breaths that new song into our lungs. We just have to sing! Some of the most beautiful moments of my life include those private songs of worship that are made up as I go. So while I love corporate worship, even if it is not always my choice of style, what really matters is the message, the meaning and the heart. Thanks, Amy, for reminding me that God is the one who choses where and when I need to sing and it is He who will put the song in my heart at the very moment I need to sing! And thanks to God for the gift of song and music….life would be so dull without it!
