Music often speaks truth to me. For not having a musical bone in my body, I’m surprised at how much I really appreciate music. In every season of life I have a theme song! Maybe two. One of my favorite questions is – “If your life was a musical, what would you be singing right now?” The answer will vary upon the day. 🙂
This past year my life has effectively and delightfully spun out of control. I say ‘delightfully’ with a sprinkle of sarcasm that is daily being taught to turn to praise. Through it all the Lord has been teaching me to rest in Him, in just about every area of my life. One of the ways I’m learning to rest is to praise Him. Not only for what I do understand, but for what I do not and for who He is.
When I praise Him, my perspective changes. It changes from the frustration of me being in control to the peace and stillness that comes from recognizing that He is in control. That He knows all, and that He is good, and has my best interest in mind.
Psalm 22 says that the Lord is enthroned on the praises of Israel. If the Lord is enthroned on the praises of His people – how often is he enthroned in my home? In my heart?
I would love to share with you my current play list as I learn to be still. Enjoy!
