The Angels Still Sing

“The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.” Psalm 103:19
This weekend, as I counted down the final minutes of 2011, I remembered to count my blessings. I whispered a quiet goodbye to what had been and embraced the hope of what will be in this new year of 2012.
Over the holidays I was reminded of the perplexities of life. How it can be filled at any given moment with both elation and disappointment, beauty and ugliness, darkness and light. And this is why we need a Savior. To help us focus our eyes and hearts on what is real and true and good. 
Sometimes the news headlines can cause us to trade faith for fear, make us forget that God is still in control. I wrote this poem years ago, when I needed to remember that, in spite of what we see in the world around us, there is still hope. That, beyond the noise of this life, the angels still sing. 
Just like they did when Christ was born. (Luke 2:13-14)
Just like they are doing now around the throne of God. (Revelation 5:11-12)
Can you hear them?

  1. Love this poem even though I am seeing it in 2014. Will try harder to hear those angels singing instead of trading faith for fear. Great post and may this year be more than you are hoping it to be!

  2. Can I just say that I love this? I love the reminder that those Angels who sang at the birth of the Savior still perpetually sing. The next time I’m belting out a song of praise, I’m going to remember that I do not sing alone.

    Wonderful, Angel.

  3. As you said it’s a bit of mystery that good and bad times co-exist, but it’s up to use to choose what will be our focus. My aim this year is to focus more on the good things. Happy New Year Angel!

  4. Absolutely I can hear ’em, I hear ’em though you and this beautiful post.

    I’ve actually had people who knew that I was goin’ through some horrific times ask my why I was smiling. Poor lost souls….

    With Jesus in your heart ya gotta smile!!!

    God bless you and have a fantastic 2012 sweetie!!! :o)

  5. Hi Angel – so grateful that angels still sing, no matter what goes on in the world or how those in power try to frighten us. Great poem, great encouragement for the beginning of the year.
    God bless
