“Did You Know You Were Singing?” (Revelation 5:8-10)

The other morning, I was awakened at 215 AM by the sound of singing. It wasn’t my radio nor some early morning birds. No, it was coming from next to me; a beautiful melodic sequence with no discernible words. I thought I was dreaming but then, I heard it again. It was coming from my wife!

 

The following morning, I greeted my wife and asked her, “Did you know you were singing?” Her bemused expression answered my query. “Early this morning, I was awakened by singing. I wasn’t sure what I was hearing but when I was fully awake, you stirred and began to sign again!”

 

She didn’t remember the song nor could she recall her dream at that moment. It was a lovely spontaneous melody. Perhaps someday, I will hear it again.

 

And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying, “Worthy are you to take the scroll

and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God

from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.”

Revelation 5:8-10 (ESV)

 

Someday, in Heaven, we will be continually singing and worshipping God, and, like my wife in her dream, we will think nothing of it. We will not have to make a decision to sing, it will be our nature and the reason we exist! It won’t be a dream, it will be our eternal reality!

 

I hope someday I will once again hear my wife’s lovely song. Spontaneous, beautiful, and soothing. It will look ahead to the glorious songs we’ll sing in the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!

 

Amen!

 

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
