“Yes Sir, I Can Boogie” is a 1977 hit single by the Spanish vocal duo Baccara. Written by Frank Dostal and Rolf Soja, and produced by Soja, this disco song was a hit across Europe and became the duo’s sole number one single in the United Kingdom, spending a single week at the top of the UK Singles Chart in October 1977. I heard the news this morning that singer Maria Mendiola of the Baccara duo died at age 69 today.
Yes Sir, I can boogie, I can boogie all night long – Yes Sir, I can boogie, but I need a certain song.
I was struck by the lyrics of the song and immediately it moved my heart to consider that we as the people of God have the song of the redeemed that enables us to sing throughout all the circumstances and the sovereignty of God that life brings our way.
Today by the enabling of the Holy Spirit let’s be encouraged to: –
• Reassess our Dependency on God, our Creator, for everything.
• Reassess our attitude of Surrender, giving to Him every worry, care, and concern.
• Reassess our Faith to both believe and receive Believe God’s promises for our lives.
• Reassess the Development of the joy of the Lord in our daily walk with Him.
Let’s today see the moments in our day with an eternal perspective and through an eternal view, rather than from what momentarily troubles us.
Let’s determine to adjust our spiritual eyesight! Through the “Truth of Scripture” and “The Voice of the Spirit” to our hearts.
We are a “People of Hope” Let’s remember that we are carriers of hope – https://youtu.be/uMKalBlEcW4 – Take a moment to watch this short video.
We sing of – Forgiveness, Adoption, Redemption – and we sing in anticipation of the glorious day when we shall see – face to face – our glorious Saviour in His return.
Let’s sing out loud that the world may hear and in God’s planning take up its anthem.
What is our anthem? Well! The Newsboys sums it up better than I can in the following words: –
Newsboys “He Reigns”
It’s the song of the redeemed Rising from the African plain.
It’s the song of the forgiven Drowning out the Amazon rain.
The song of Asian believers Filled with God’s holy fire.
It’s every tribe, every tongue, every nation A love song born of a grateful choir.
It’s all God’s children singing Glory, glory, hallelujah He reigns.
Let it rise about the four winds Caught up in the heavenly sound.
Let praises echo from the towers of cathedrals to the faithful gathered underground.
Of all the songs sung from the dawn of creation some were meant to persist.
Of all the bells rung from a thousand steeples None rings truer than this.
And all the powers of darkness Tremble at what they’ve just heard ‘Cause all the powers of darkness Can’t drown out a single word
Hallelujah – Let’s boogie on.
