I’ve always heard that if we don’t like singing and praising God through song that we aren’t going to like heaven because that’s what we’ll be doing there. In thinking about being in a constant state of praising God it’s hard to imagine it staying fresh . . . from our earthly perspective it can be hard to imagine singing for eternity. I mean, we only know so many songs. Will we have to just start repeating the same ones over and over? I’m being a little silly, but it does seem like one of those mysteries, doesn’t it? Probably one of those that is very difficult to completely understand this side of heaven. We just don’t get it.
Erika W. had an interesting perspective about this very thing . . .
. . . someone said that if Heaven is simply worshipping and praising God all the time, that just didn’t sound appealing. And I think that I agreed with this statement. I thought they had a point, I mean worship and praise is great fun, it’s fantastic to spend time praising God, but to do it all the time? I seem to think that we reached the conclusion that praising God was just not something we would want to do all the time.

If I just think about standing and singing forever it does seem a bit daunting. But if I think about the times when I’ve felt the undeniable presents of God moving in my life it has been hard to contain myself. My only response is praising him. I guess I can start to understand a response of perpetual praise by being in the presents of God without any distractions . . . without me or my world getting in the way at all.
I better learn some new songs!
