He put in me a new song

Somehow or rather, this CNY period, with all the late nights, binge snacking and excessive feasting, my body's not feeling very good. And there's the persistent holiday mode still inside of me.

But one awesome thing happened during this short holiday period!

The Lord inspired me to write a song for Him.

Was in the shower when I was humming some random melody until a distinct tune came up. Then I used it alongside some lyrics (which I crafted on the spot) and it sounded alright! After the shower, I went to my desk, got out my journal and penned down the prototype lyrics. Took my guitar and tried to give the melody a more definite chord progression.

And pooh! It fit in well. So I stayed up until 2am plus coming up with the chorus (with God beside me and His infinite wisdom and creativity) and then the lyrics for the verse. Sounded well too. It's a praise song with an upbeat tempo.

Isn't our God so wonderful?

Alrighty, in the days to come I'll formulate a more concrete structure to the song, perhaps a chord progression for the introduction as well. And also to come up with a second verse or maybe even a third.

I'll share it with you folks when I'm done.

God bless!

Hope this mid-sem break allows you time to unwind a little despite having to write food-essay and do group project.


"He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the LORD." Psalm 40:3 (NIV)

Praise our Creator indeed for inspiration!

Amen! Praise Him for all our knowledge, discernment and inspiration. For every good and perfect gift comes from above.

Yup. And I'm still working on those 2 above mentioned assignments as well as the usual tutorials.

Praise the Lord for the break and praise Him also for work - for all work are opportunities to hone our skills and abilities in for His glory.
