This one word is representative of a part of my life that is entrenched within me, a part of who I am. Music, instruments and voices coming together in a beautiful harmony of pleasing, comforting, inspiring, exciting and all-encompassing sounds that speak to my soul and fill my heart.
Many, many times in my life, I turned to music. The music helped me stay in control, if you will. My emotions filtered through the songs I listened to. I screamed, I cried, I lost hope… then I found it again and I found joy, and even love… all in the story of song.
My genres of musical preference usually depend on my mood. I appreciate all kinds of music, though I do have favorites. I also categorize my music into my emotions… I have happy songs, energetic songs, love songs, inspiring songs… angry songs and hope-filled songs.
Yes, the music is part of me. I believe GOD brought me this beautiful resource so I could express myself and find my way back to Him in all the many moments of my life. The Father gifted me and I am continuing to develop that gift more. Music is an expression of love because it is using what is in your heart and sharing it in song.
God gives us music so we can sing to Him and worship. As we sing, we are using a gift He gave us… that blesses our Lord.
Use the beauty of music to understand who God is. Allow yourself to get lost in the song and close your eyes… you will find God there.
Day two of the 3 Day Quote Challenge that erhynireh has challenged me to…
Here’s my quote…
Who are you? What makes you tick? What drives you? What sets your soul on fire???
I really love this quote because it challenges me. It challenges me to go after my passion, my love… my calling.
Each of us has a calling. God has created each of us unique and special. We are one of a kind in everything we say and do. Our place in the world is necessary and specific.
I believe that we each have an assignment from the Lord as to what He wants us to do with our lives. I also believe that He makes that known by the passions and the desires He places in our hearts.
Sometimes, it is a matter of timing. We go after something that we feel we are being called to do and well it doesn’t happen. Don’t give up on that calling, yourself or God. Have faith and believe that He’s still preparing you for that season.
Never stop believing in yourself and what you have to offer the world. Have faith in the God who created you. Know that he has plans for your life and they are plans for good…
Sometimes the disappointment, or the closed door is merely God wanting to see your heart. Show Him you trust Him and move on. He will open up a new door, provide a new opportunity.
God has amazing things planned for each of our lives… beginning, middle and end. Our stories will be FULL and will reflect Him. Let Him guide your path. Let Him continue to fire you up in your soul. Let Him replace your fear with passion and love… then let Him use you in the capacity that you were designed for!
