“The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on the heights. For the director of music. On my stringed instruments.”
When I read the above scripture – I was moved. I am a musician and have the heart and soul of an artist. I am also told I am a “sanguine” deep and emotional – life of the party – but also very sentimental and easily wounded and sensitive. You know – “those temperamental musicians”. I don’t think I am – but I have always understood that I view the world a little differently than others do. I am an “audio” learner – and even more – my friend John recently corrected me – I am a “kinesthetic” learner – which means I not only hear the music – but I get inside of it and breathe it in – and wrap it around me like a blanket and it becomes a part of me.
So the psalms and other scriptures about music and musicians really speak to me. David was also a musician and I love the poetic way in which he writes – and many of the psalms were set to music back then – and even today we are still doing this. There is something about the “artist” who is able to put the right spin on words to express and communicate a thought and paint a beautiful picture.
Below is a beautiful music video based on a favorite Psalm of mine. Enjoy – and allow God’s sweet spirit to penetrate into your secret “hiding place” Allow Him to be that for you today. He is trustworthy and dependable. He will keep you safe.
