Thought for the Day: This is the opening verse of our Call To Worship this morning, and it will be read by Jonah Hickman. Those words have been spoken more times than one can imagine, yet what exactly is a joyful noise. The word noise is not usually used in a positive way. For most of us, we are thinking honking cars, a neighbor’s dog barking at 2am or a strange sound coming from the dishwasher. None of those would fall into the category of joyful. Of course, when I think of my own singing, outside of when I’m alone in the car and I sound awesome, it would be defined as noise by most. Maybe it is joyful in the ears of one audience member in particular. God! God doesn’t notice how it is off key or just obnoxious. God knows the intent of one’s heart, and when there is joy in the heart of the one making noise, it is beautiful to God.
Prayer: May every noise that comes from my mouth give you honor and glory, Lord God. May my noise join all those across the earth who are making their own joyful noise. Amen.
