How Can I Keep From Singing?



You have turned my mourning into dancing;
you have taken off my sackcloth
and clothed me with joy,
so that my soul may praise you and not be silent.
O Lord my God, I will give thanks to you forever.​       

Psalm 30:11-12

Take a moment and watch this rendition of the 1860s hymn, “How Can I Keep from Singing?”

What is one time in your life when God turned things around—when your “mourning” turned to “dancing”?

When are you most likely to want to sing? (or dance? Or cheer? Or jump with excitement?)
