What is your life like? For you are a puff of smoke that appears for a short time and then vanishes. — Jas 4:14 NET
“My days are swifter than a runner, they speed by without seeing happiness. They glide by like reed boats, like an eagle that swoops down on its prey.”—You bring their lives to an end and they “fall asleep … in the morning it glistens and sprouts up; at evening time it withers and dries up.—”Man, born of woman, lives but a few days, and they are full of trouble. He grows up like a flower and then withers away."
The world is passing away with all its desires, but the person who does the will of God remains forever.—They will perish, but you will endure. They will wear out like a garment; like clothes you will remove them and they will disappear. But you remain; your years do not come to an end.—Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever!
Job 9:25-26, Ps 90:5-6, Job 14:1-2, 1 John 2:17, Ps 102:26-27, Heb 13:8
I will sing praises with my spirit, but I will also sing praises with my mind. — 1 Cor 14:15 NET
Be filled by the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music in your hearts to the Lord.—Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and exhorting one another with all wisdom, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, all with grace in your hearts to God.
My mouth will praise the Lord. Let all who live praise his holy name forever!
Praise the Lord, for it is good to sing praises to our God! Yes, praise is pleasant and appropriate! Offer to the Lord a song of thanks! Sing praises to our God to the accompaniment of a harp!
I also heard a sound coming out of heaven like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder. Now the sound I heard was like that made by harpists playing their harps.
Eph 5:18-19, Col 3:16, Ps 145:21, Ps 147:1, Ps 147:7, Rev 14:2
