As I was watching the 56th Grammy Awards, it occurred to me that there is no shortage of music in the world.
Some artist is always composing, writing and performing wonderful pieces of music for the world to enjoy. So it occurred to me that each and every one of us should always be composing, writing and singing our own song.
The events of our lives serve as great lyrics. Daily, God gives us the honor to experience a whole host of rich opportunities to sing as we make our mark in the world.
Your song may never make the “top thousand” on any chart. However, your song should always be “Number One” on your own personal chart. No one can sing your song like you can, and no one has ever been or is ever going where you have been and where you are headed.
Yes life is sometimes “like a box of chocolates” because “time is filled with swift transition.” Still in the midst of your “mountain top times” and your “coming up the rough side of the mountain times” your song will greatly help you make it through it all. “The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song will I praise him.” (Psalm 28:7)
No matter what trust God “Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 5:19-20)
Your song will always be an encouragement to others and yourself. “For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful. What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also. Otherwise, if you give thanks with your spirit, how can anyone in the position of an outsider say 'Amen' to your thanksgiving when he does not know what you are saying? For you may be giving thanks well enough, but the other person is not being built up.” (1 Corinthians 14:14-17)
