My OrchestraSep 10
My life is an orchestra. I think it has always been this way, but I’ve just now begun to hear the melody. There are all kinds of beautiful instruments each playing a separate part, but blending together to make something beautiful. God is the director.
Many of you know about how God has been working in my life. He is taking me on a journey that is incredible. I only agreed to follow him. I had no idea where he would lead me. It is amazing. First, he called me to seek his face. Let me tell you, it is so beautiful I can almost not look upon it. Then he called me to spread his love. I started telling complete strangers about Jesus and have been so blessed by doing so. Here is the amazing part. Then without me asking, he began to break my yoke and lift my heavy burdens. (Come back Tuesday, I will tell you more about that.) Now, here comes the best part. I have always had the dream of publishing a book. So, God has used that dream and called me to write for Him. He not only called me to write, but he opened doors for me to do so. Check out my devotion published today on Faith Lifts. It’s called It’s All Elementary. (I was also featured on Faith Lifts on 8-31. Check the archives “I Like Your Face“)
Now, everything seems to work together. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
The books that I’m reading speak to what is going on in my life right now. My quiet times have just the right verses to speak to my heart about where I am in my life. The sermons our pastor gives speak just to me. Each of these things is an instrument in my orchestra. Together, they make beautiful music in my life. God is amazing. Every day he amazes me. His grace and goodness in my life are so undeserved and so overwhelming, I am often brought to tears. I will praise him. I am the voice of the soloist. My musical backup is incredible. God wants to direct the orchestra of your life. Do your instruments sound out of tune? Are they all playing a different piece? This often happens when you try to direct your own orchestra. Let God be the director and you just stand back and listen. Soon, you won’t be able to help yourself and you’ll begin to sing his praises. Oh, what beautiful music you’ll make together.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.
