When my children were little I used to put my love for them in action by singing to them to calm them. Simple tunes like “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” and my favorite—“Jesus loves me, this I know.” As they grew, I would play music while driving around on errands and we would all sing together. A great way to pass the time and bring out the smiles!
These days I sing to, and sing with, my grandkids—and I give the oldest ones iTunes gift cards and help them choose the latest, greatest in Christian songs so they can have the music with them on their devices to listen to any time they wish. And finding music suggestions for them is easy—since we use such great music in Body & Soul!
Check out all the latest Body & Soul tunes in the front of the Spring 2017 “Love in Action” devotional booklet and take time to read the words of encouragement and the Scriptures noted in the booklet. It will lift your heart on hard days and help you soar on days when your soul is filled with joy and your eyes are already fixed on God.
This session I hope you will experience love in action though the music we exercise to in Body & Soul. It both powers us up and cools us down, depending on the tempo and style! Our lead song for spring is “Love with Your Life” by Hollyn. She sings, “L-O-V-E rolls off the tongue, but sometimes the word’s just not enough—you gotta dig a little deeper. You gotta love with your life if you want to see a change. Let’s all plan to dig a little deeper to show our love to others by our actions. You will be amazed at the change in others when you make this change in yourself!
