God's Heart Beat...

Postby Wordfirst » Tue Apr 12, 2011 12:23 am

Today I took the song I wrote to a very talented young man at my church and watched as he began to translate it on paper. Three years ago I asked God for a lullabye for my grandson. At that time, I had a yellow slip of lined paper with the words of Psalm 121 tucked inside my Bible (one of the ladies from Bible study had given it to me for encouragement). As I looked at the Psalm, the words seemed to change order slightly, a melody came into my mind and some more words came too. I wrote and I sang until I had the song memorized. I have sung it to all four of my grandchildren and watched them fall asleep as though God Himself was lovingly, soothingly, lulling them to sleep. I do not know much about music at all except that I love to listen to it and I love to sing. I wanted to record this, especially for my grandchildren who live so far away in Virginia. Joshua wrote out the key in which it is written--C#. He wrote out the tempo; there are three different tempos contained in the song. Finally, he wrote some numbers and letters--137bpm. I looked at the notation and thought, "That must mean beats per minute." I expressed my thoughts out loud and Joshua confirmed them. On the way home it occured to me that I have a heartbeat, measured in beats per minute. This made me think that God's own heartbeat is in this song, at the rate of 137 beats per minute. I do not mean to be irreverent or to put God on the same level with humans. I know that He is holy and so high above His creation; I just felt so close to Him. He gave me the melody, the words are His words right from the Bible. Life happens so fast and memorable moments are so easily forgotten in the chaos of life. I want to cherish this experience with my God and writing helps me remember.

What a wonderful gift, a Word in song, straight from God's heart to yours and then to your grandchildren. How precious. The beating of a heart is a mystery and a wonder and a powerful thing when acknowledged by God and His children.
