She Went Out Singing! August 30, 2021


The meeting had concluded and I was making my way out of the church facility. As I came out a side door toward the parking lot I found myself behind an older lady who was walking to her car. She did not know I was behind her…and then I heard her. She was singing! No one else was around and she was singing – singing to herself and singing to the Lord. It was beautiful.

There was something wonderfully refreshing about hearing a Christian overflowing with worship and leaving with a song of praise. As I left the meeting I thought: that is how I would like to go out. I want to go out singing!

  • I want to go out every day singing. Begin your day with praise. “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name” (Psalm 100:4).
  • I want to go out to each task singing. Praise sanctifies all labor. “Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing” (Psalm 100:2).
  • I want to go out into eternity singing. When I take my last breath here on earth I hope it is full of praise for God. “Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD” (Psalm 150:6).

As you go out into this broken world, go out singing! Take the joy of Jesus with you. Remember that you never leave His presence and what you should leave behind is the testimony of a heart made glad by grace.

Yes, that sweet Christian lady taught me something at church on that Lord’s day – she went out singing!

The ruins of the Temple of Apollo at Corinth. The city was known in antiquity for this magnificent Doric temple. Ironically, this was the city where the preacher from Alexandria, Apollos, came to minister. Corinth was destroyed by the Romans under Lucius Mummius, then later refounded as a city by Julius Caesar, just before his assassination. As a result, many monuments in the city were dedicated to his memory, and that of his familv. Photo by John Buckner

The ruins of the Castle of the Servant in Jordan. The historian Josephus wrote that the dynasty of Tobiah built a castle on the east side of the Jordan River, in Ammon. He specifically wrote in the Antiquities of the Jews about the carved "beasts of gigantic size" visible here on the left corner of the structure. The beasts on the right side are not as well-preserved. The structure dates to the centuries after Nehemiah, however it shows the power and prestige of this family of "servants."

      Amen. Always such a blessing even though our family is struggling, I can have hope that if I do what’s right and fear God myself He can do mighty things with our family.

    Thank you, this reminded me of my sweet Mother. She often sat on her back porch singing to the Lord.
