Sing a new song to the LORD! Let the whole earth sing to the LORD!Psalm 96:1
As a child, whenever I had a bad attitude my mother would tell me I needed to change my tune. Her purpose was to get me to quit whining or complaining, and choose a better song with a happier tone. As a singer, she knew that the choice of the right song could be the difference between success and failure. So it is with us. Is our song one of faith and victory, or one of fear and failure? God will give us our new song, if we will ask for His help.~ Pastor Bob Barnett
