Psalm 81 is a Psalm of Celebration.
The Psalmist asks us to play songs and shout for joy! When was the last time you celebrated?
We celebrate birthdays and new births and each other. We celebrate new jobs and retirement and sometimes the end of someone's life. But do we celebrate the every day? Is our worship a time of celebrating God?
I had someone remind me this week of how celebratory worship can become. When it becomes rote. When we just do it to do it. Its one of the reasons I like to change things up. This week in worship when the congregation clapped with me to "I'll Fly Away", my heart soared! How did you celebrate God this week?
