All of you know I love music. I love hearing the praise band on Sunday morning, listening to Christian radio and hearing our choir practice and sing. I love playing/singing songs with my friends and taking in Sandy's practice on Sunday morning as we share discussion about the music she has chosen for the day. It is all beautiful to me. In that music there is a sharing of life itself because we sing to and for the God of the only eternal song.
In a Michael Card song he recounts the idea that our lives are truly songs that will resonate with joy when they find their origin. Our souls were made by a God who leads us back to that rhyme and rhythm. We were/are created to rhyme with His purpose.
Philip realized this in John 1:45 when he exclaimed ... "We have found the very person Moses and the prophets wrote about. His name is Jesus, the son of Joseph from Nazareth!" Philip's realization brought his very being into a rhythm with God's plan ... an amazing and wonderful place to be.
Casting Crowns (the group) sing a song about this. They sing ... "and now my lifesong sings!" It sings in the opening of eyes. It sings in the realization of God's ancient promises. It sings in the fulfillment of God's present plans. It sings best in knowing that we, who were lost, have now been found! It sings because we realize that our lifesong is only realized in Jesus! Now ... go out and find your rhyme! Randy
