Musings From A Musical Mind

We Fall Down

I look outside my office window, on this day after New Year’s – and see a frozen pond.  The sky is clear but the air is very cold.  It seems a long time since warm and also a long time since snow.  It is the ‘in-between’ time of year.

Everyone is alive with resolutions, pictures and motivation, but I am at a steady pace.  Filling in my days with students and busy work.  There are many memories of other years that still remind me – cold weather, frozen ponds and ground white with snow.

There are seasons that circle round – warm and cold, wet and dry. Things to distract, fill us with joy and peace – or just annoy.  This too is a part of life.

Back to a routine is good for the soul.  So I am back to doing those things that I do automatically – but there are those things that also cause me to stop and ponder.

I was doing one of these ‘ordinary’ things yesterday going about my routine.  I listened to a song I had not heard for a long time, although I was familiar with the tune and lyrics.  It is a song about redemption.  About falling.  About recovering after the fall.  It is called “We Fall Down” by Bob Carlisle.  By the time the children’s choir joins in at the end of the song with Bob’s husky voice singing ad lib over top of the melody it is just pure beauty and the emotion of the song is fully realized.  I wanted to share it with you – because if you are like me – you have fallen.  And we are all just sinners after all.  And those of us who have been victorious to any degree in this life’s journey – are ones who are able to get back up after falling.  We have realized that we can’t do it on our own.  At all.

So my prayer for you today is this:  If you have missed the mark, been disappointed with yourself or others this past year, or think you just don’t measure up to those who seem to have it all together – all you have to do is get back up and start fresh.  He is waiting for you.  God’s mercy is new every morning – there is enough grace for each new day – and in this case – each New Year.  I pray that you will discover His love for you this day.

God Bless
