Psalm150 Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens!
2 Praise him for his mighty deeds;
praise him according to his excellent greatness!
3 Praise him with trumpet sound;
praise him with lute and harp!
4 Praise him with tambourine and dance;
praise him with strings and pipe!
5 Praise him with sounding cymbals;
praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
Here is the home for anyone who plays, or wants to play, any musical instrument,or sing. If you have any experience, or aspire to take part in music making, even if you play CDs, you are welcome here.
The Bible says, 'make a joyful noise unto the Lord', I do not believe that this means we need to be great technicians or accomplished musicians, I certainly am not one of those. We are asked to praise Him with all instruments, even with cracked symbols, it is the fact that we do it with joy in our hearts and a real intent to worship and praise. If we love the Lord then we will find that the Spirit prompts us to be better musicians, because whatever we do we need to do it to the best of our abilities, but it is what is in our hearts that counts. In truth, in rehearsal or practice, I used to make mistake after mistake, but when it came to the Sunday service or the celebration the Spirit came upon me and I played perfectly, because we were playing and worshipping in Spirit & Truth.
I would love to use this group as a means of encouraging those who are aspiring to play worship music with any instrument, for those who may already be proficient in an instrument and want to take their skills into a worship situation. Nothing pleases me more than seeing people develop in their lives and their faith, so I have added a new page to this group especially for that purpose. I would love to see people with experience share their advice and experiences in a way to help others. Please come and share, your experience is like gold.
