American Marines Singing “Days of Elijah”

American Marines Worshipping

What a wonderful sight! These marines are definitely enjoying their worship service! It’s good to see their fun and friendship. I don’t believe I’ll ever hear “Days of Elijah” again without thinking of this video. This video was taken at Camp Pendleton and has been such a  blessing to see and share!

Remember to keep the men and women serving our country in your prayers. God Bless them!!!

Here are the words for “Days of Elijah”

These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the word of the Lord
And these are the days of Your servant Moses
Righteousness being restored

And these are the days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword
Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet’s call
So, lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee
Out of Zions hill, salvation comes

And these are the days of Ezekiel
The dry bones becoming as flesh
And these are the days of Your servant, David
Rebuilding a temple of praise

And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are all white in Your world
And we are the laborers in Your vineyard
Declaring the Word of the Lord

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet’s call
So, lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee
Out of Zions hill, salvation comes

Behold He comes, riding on the clouds
Shining like the sun at the trumpet’s call
So, lift your voice, it’s the year of Jubilee
Out of Zions hill, salvation comes

There is no god like Jehova (x14)

Did you know that playing a musical instrument is like taking your brain to the gym for a workout? Can you imagine how strong your muscle can develop by working out with weights. That’s nothing compared to the way playing a musical instrument can work out your brain! Check out the cute video below that shows what happens to your brain when you play a musical instrument.

There are many studies showing how beneficial it is for developing brains to learn a musical instrument. Like muscles in our bodies, it is beneficial for ALL ages to  play a musical instrument!

How Playing An Instrument Benefits Your Brain

I found it interesting that listening to music is good for your brain, but playing it is much better! Both sides of your brain. This is why the part of your brain called a ‘Corpus calosum’ increases in both volume and activity. It’s the bridge between the two hemispheres.

The video talks about musicians having enhances memory functions. We know that these benefits are unique to musicians as compared to other activities like sports and painting. The activities in your brain when playing an instrument are different than any other activity.

With the modern tools, we can actually take a peak in our brains to see what they do when performing different activities.

There are many reasons to learn to play an instrument. Helping your brain to develop is a good one to consider. This is especially important for kids as their brains are beginning to develop.

At a Home-school Convention a number of years ago, a mom ran to our booth. She wanted to let us know that her teenage daughter just loved our program.

She told us that not only did her daughter love learning to play the guitar but all of her grades were going up too! I’m not surprised knowing what playing an instrument actually does to your brain!

Besides making you smarter, playing music is very therapeutic. Another student always told me that playing the guitar took him to a different place. All the stress of everyday life disappears.

Playing an instrument has a lot of benefits, but when it’s connected with worship, it’s in another whole category. We can connect to our living God through music!
