He put a song in my heart...

I sip my coffee.  Reflect on passages in Acts.  Birds eager to begin the day greet morning light in song.

What if we humans did this?

What if before our day even began, we sang out melodies of thanks...even if it was just thanks of the gift of a new start?

I know why I haven't.  I haven't because of thoughts that I LET myself focus too much on:

~what I have to get done~
~how much I have to get done~
~what little time I have to get it all done in~

Like clanging cymbals over a serene string quartet, the thoughts I LET overwhelm me, drowned out any song I had in my heart.  

As I am learning, moment by moment, to stop listening to the chaos loud drums called 'overwhelming thoughts,' my ear is being tuned to hear the sweet harmonies...

There IS a song in my heart and HE GAVE it to me.

He gave you a song too.  Be still and listen.  There is a beautiful and good Composer behind those runs and trills.  

The key to knowing this good Composer is being still enough, quiet enough, to hear His song played over you.  

When you hear it, sing it back to Him...because it was His to begin with.  

This is where joy rests...


The Song of Moses:

Give ear, O heavens, and let me speak;
And let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
Let my teaching drop as the rain,
My speech distill as the dew,
As the droplets on the fresh grass
And as the showers on the herb.
For I proclaim the name of the Lord;
Ascribe greatness to our God!
 The Rock! His work is perfect,
For all His ways are just;
A God of faithfulness and without injustice,
Righteous and upright is He...

Deuteronomy 32:1-4

Will Reagan's song:


  1. Amazing grace has been given to you abundantly and your words reflect His glory. I am speechless as I consider the light of Christ that is shining in and through me with the words written here. Love you much my sweet Alison Jennifer Rowland Brown...
