I drove to work blaring “Days of Elijah” earlier in the week and would like to take this moment to apologize to those great folks who live on HWY 95 or those who may have passed me on the road and wondered if they needed to call 911 (I may have been dancing a little).
My rendition of this song isn’t nearly as good as the one listed below by Twila Paris. It’s one of my go-tos anytime I’m in the car or when I just need to get fired up about the important things. My favorite line is in the chorus, “Lift your voice!”

Every saved soul has the responsibility to preach Jesus and the hope that he has brought into our lives.
