Psalm 95

Come, let’s sing out loud to the Lord!
Let’s raise a joyful shout to the rock of our salvation!
Let’s come before him with thanks!
Let’s shout songs of joy to him!

I enjoy slow and intimate songs during worship! I believe that we can encounter Jesus during these songs. But I also believe that there is a lot of power when we sing joyful songs, songs that proclaim truth or a promise even if it‘s not yet here. 

You don’t have to be happy to sing happy songs. Praise and worship are not depending on our emotions. I have even experienced the opposite: that praise and worship can change our emotion or attitude.
