Road to Joy Tip #16: Sing for Joy

Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.  Psalm 96:12

Thinking about the trees "singing for joy" reminds me of listening to the rain as it falls on the forest. As it hits the leaves, the sound can be almost deafening, filling my senses with peace. It seems that the trees are applauding to God and thanking Him for the blessing of the rain. During the next rainstorm, step outside and experience the joy of the forest singing. Then, thank God for the joy He places in your heart and join in the chorus singing His praise.
