In my 40-day prayer challenge book, Draw a Circle by Mark Batterson, one of the days emphasized the point that God likes to hear a new song—He likes it when we get out of our rut and vary our ways of communicating with Him—maybe a new place for the prayer time, or maybe a new song.
Psalm 96:1 says, “Sing a new song to the Lord.” I love that.
So, as I was focusing on that verse for a Bible art journaling page, what came to my mind was an image of a bird. Maybe that’s because a “new” hobby for my husband and myself is setting up bird feeders and watching the birds from our bedroom windows (high above the feeders and our woods). As we were watching the birds a couple of mornings ago, I remarked to my husband that another manifestation (there are so many) of the miraculous hand of the Creator is the fact that each individual bird has its own song. Obviously, the markings on each bird are unique. But, even the song is unique. Each has its own song. I just think that’s amazing.
