We are on vacation with friends this week. One of our favorite things to do together is spend time worshiping the Lord. This past Sunday morning we sat on the porch overlooking the Atlantic Ocean while singing with some of our favorite worship songs. One song in particular we had not heard before, so we listened closely to the lyrics.
While we were singing we noticed a mockingbird perched on the sea grass below who joined us in worshiping God. It was intentional and beautiful. He flew away, or so we thought, but he was back within minutes and continued his harmony.
Imagine our delight when we sang the following lyric…
“And Your love, it vanquished all my enemies
It broke the cage that silenced me
And set this songbird free
I sing, for all the love You’ve given me
Rejoice because You’ve chosen me
And called this orphan home
We smiled realizing this was a moment to cherish. Not only has Christ compelled us to worship Him in spirit and in truth, but He has even compelled all of nature to join us in the chorus. When the song ended our feathered friend flew away.
Vacations are the perfect time to slow down and notice the miracles happening all around us. This is the place where Heaven and nature sings…
What is your favorite worship song?
