Why Did I Stop Singing?

I wrote songs for God regularly when I worked in the full-time ministry of my church in Cabanatuan City, Nueva Ecija, Philippines. Songwriting would come easy for me, I would have lyrics and melodies in my head and I could just put them on paper quickly. It was a skill that I was able to use for God’s glory, as most of my songs were performed in church. Years passed, I don’t work for the church anymore and I am finding ways to serve God in my own little way, but I have not written a song for God. I didn’t really paid any attention to it until I got really stressed out with work. These were hard times for me. I woke up filled with fear. I was defeated and unaware of how to get my confidence back. I spent time in prayer and I cried to God but fear was still lodged in my heart. One Saturday while I was praying and was still deeply troubled, I reached for my guitar, and sang the songs I wrote for God. I felt great! I cried and I worshipped. I felt peace surrounded me. I thought about the experience and I said to myself, this is exactly what I need. I need to set aside time to praise and worship God with songs that comes from my heart. My head was in chaos until I raised my voice and worshipped God. All my worries, concern, anxiety and fear were washed away during my time of worship. Why did I stop singing and making melodies for God? Did I get busy? Did I prioritise differently? I guess I forgot my first love. I will have a fresh start with Jesus. I will write songs for You my Lord once again. Ephesians 5:19 New International Version (NIV) 19 speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord,
