I love music. As I enjoy songs written long before I came to earth, I think of what a wonderful connector music is.
The song writers essentially left us a map by which we can join them in the chorus. They had no idea that many years after God sent the tune to them, there would be others singing their songs. They simply wrote in their time and place for the joy of the music.
As others picked up the melodies, they passed them on, until the songs reached us. And we now have the joy of passing them on.
Not only does music join us with the original writers, but it also joins us with others near and far.
When we hear certain songs, we are transported back in time to places we were when we first heard the music.
We think for a moment of those who once shared the music with us. If we have lost touch, we may smile and wonder if they are out there somewhere hearing the music and smiling too.
Music speaks for us. When we find we have no words to express our feelings, we often find there are others who have expressed it all through their music. Their music becomes our music.
God ordained music by beginning the song Himself. And when God looks at you, He is so happy He bursts into song!
Zephaniah 3:17 says,
“The Lord your God in your midst,
The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness,
He will quiet you with His love,
He will rejoice over you with singing.”
As Gloria Gaither observed, God began the song and then He gave each of His Singers a part of His Song.
When we all get Home and put our songs together, we will hear the grandest hallelujah chorus ever.
Stop for a moment. Listen. Hear God sing. Hear the angels. Hear the singers who went before you. And then join the chorus! Feel the Joy!
“Serve the Lord with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing!”
Here is the link to the song that says it beautifully.
