Seeking Him Podcast

Singing While Dry

Woman: For the last few months, I’ve just felt dry. I don’t feel like I can pray or listen to people talk about God or anything. It really does feel kind of like a depression.

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: When I come across someone who’s feeling spiritually dry, I often will ask them, "Have you been singing to the Lord?" Praise can be a cure for spiritual dryness.

King David gives us an example in Psalm 63, where he says, “My soul thirsts for You; my flesh longs for You in a dry and weary land where there is no water" (v. 1).

Then he goes on to tell how he handles this feeling of spiritual dryness. He says, “I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands . . . with singing lips my mouth will praise you” (v. 4–5).

If you’re not used to this, it may sound crazy. But if you’re feeling dry and needy, why not try singing—out loud—to God?

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
