The definition of harmony includes this phrase: a consistent, orderly, or pleasing arrangement of parts; I was thinking yesterday how our greatest peace comes when we are in alignment with God. When we are in alignment with God in our relationship, in the attitude of our minds and the purpose of our steps...we have the greatest peace possible. And it made sense to me. If there is very little distance or gap between my ways and my intentions and His purposes and plans, then there is little cause for stress. The stress of life comes from the gaps that come into the picture.
Harmony is a beautiful musical reality where two sounds...two vibrations that are interpreted as sound...overlay each other and find agreement despite there separateness.
Harmony is a good metaphor for the kind of walk we should have with the Lord and the kind of walk that will bring peace...as our thoughts are filled with His and our conversation is with Him and our steps are with His.
Colossians 3:14 -15a
And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts...
