Have you ever been walking along and, out of nowhere, a song came into your mind? And once it gets into your mind it may want to stay! It occurred to me, as I was awakening this morning, that music is another connection we have with the deeper things and the spiritual things and with the Lord. We have a need to hear and express deep things and things that are hard to capture in the words we know. There are deep and dark waters of emotion that accompany the uncertainties and the great joys of living. Sometimes we just need to breathe in musical tones. Even the words of the songs sometimes seem to be secondary to the flow of melody and rhythm.
It is good to have a storehouse of music that can carry us through the rapids and carry us to the peaceful shores of His presence.
2 Samuel 6:5 Then David and all the house of Israel played music before the Lord on all kinds of instruments of fir wood, on harps, on stringed instruments, on tambourines, on sistrums, and on cymbals.-
