Musings From A Musical Mind

“When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love, O LORD, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.”             Psalm 94:18-19

I love the Psalms.  They speak about real things, emotions and feelings – the absolute despair – and exuberant JOY!!!   Heartbreak – and fulfillment – fear and love.  They are a wonderful expression of how the human heart feels.

I have often heard our “modern” or “contemporary” worship songs of the church criticized over the years – for being too “self absorbed”.  Everything is about “me” and how I feel. And while I agree that too much of this is not balanced – there is something to be said for the self expression in song, prayer and worship.  Take the Psalms.  They are a journey of David’s love affair with his God.  They are personal and profound – and speak to us even today.  We have set many of them to music and lovingly sing them as our hearts cry out from the deepest part.  David was an ordinary man who loved God with all his heart and was not perfect.  He messed up many times – moral failure, murder, deceit – were only a few of his “mistakes”.  And yet – God referred to David as a “man after His own heart“.  We would all love that to be said of us, wouldn’t we?  You mean we can mess up that bad and still have God think of us – as men and women after His own heart?  Yes.   Most definitely.   Read 1st and 2nd Samuel  and the Psalms – to get a glimpse of this ordinary man’s journey with God – who did extra ordinary things with God by his side.  Among those extra ordinary things – he was a lowly shepherd who became the King of Israel.  He committed adultery with a woman named Bathsheba – and yet – God still honored David and made the son from this union the next King.  His name was Solomon – the wisest man who ever lived.

If you think the Lord does not forgive – think again, my friend.  Repent and God will bless you and give you a testimony for all to hear – and you will be able to say how great our God is.  He is still working miracles in lives today.  Don’t ever forget it.

When your foot is “slipping” – cry out to Him and He will catch you – and He will bring Joy to your Soul.  It’s a promise.

I am praying for you,

God Bless

    I actually got goosebumps reading this. How GREAT is His love for us!

  3. It’s human nature to be me focused. For instance, me is glad you post things like this! ROFL

    However, God tells us to express ourselves in joy to Him and to each other. So me is also glad to share my thoughts with you so we can fellowship and bask in the glow God gives us to share.

  4. Hi Cindy, good words for today and good to remember.
    Thanks, Debi
