April 2 - Children's Devotion

When I was in second grade my favorite teacher was not regular teacher but my music teacher Mrs. Lembeck. She had so much energy and excitement. She always came in with a box of surprises and singing some very silly songs. I remember Making a Purple Stew - even to this day - more than 30 years ago. I remember times that I was nodding off and then all of sudden Mrs. Lembeck came in and I was wide awake and ready to go.


Psalm 5 is a prayer that David prayed in the morning before facing his enemies. Sometimes enemies are people that are out to get us or illnesses things we can see and things we can't. The Psalm ends "let all who take refuge in you rejoice, let them ever sing for joy." Science has found that singing can change our moods and make us feel better. I know we don't have our music teachers or Mr. Keith to help us sing but we can sing everyday. Our challenge is to sing every day and see how we feel.


Let us pray: God we love you and we know you love us. Help us to sing every day when we feel like it or not. Amen.
