A Melody Of Love We Offer Back To Him

I was thinking this morning of learning a new piece of music on the keyboard, and how that is like our love.

When I first see a new piece of music, it looks impossibly complicated, too much, more than I can ever learn, much less play it in the way it was intended...but then I decide that, hard or not, I am willing to try.

That is what Jesus was waiting for in our two lives...for our willingness to try, to reach out, to see if there was a second chance for each of us. Neither of us felt adequate to the task, it seemed impossible - but the willingness was there...and that is all Jesus needed...and He brought us together.

During the beginning of learning a piece of music, the notes are sometimes mis-played, the timing is off, and the melody and bass are not yet together...but awkward as this is, you can hear in the attempt, hints of how the melody and bass can sound when the notes all come together...and this little hint makes you want to know the music better, to learn how the two parts connect, you spend the time to become familiar with it.

You practice, and practice again, correcting the mistakes, and going over it again...until the time comes when suddenly it all meshes, and the music flows from your fingertips, lovely, chords and melody working together as the composer intended...and oh, what a feeling that is!

As we were brought together by Jesus, we were tentative, slowly getting to know one another, revealing our thoughts and feelings over time, testing each other's reaction to ourselves, seeing if our two lines of music would sound beautiful together.and acquaintance became friendship, and friendship grew into love, and suddenly there were not enough hours in the day to spend together, learning our song to play.

There comes the time when the music is learned, the tempo is right, and the melody and chords are put together...yet still something is missing...and that is the investment of yourself into the music, the emotion poured out thru your fingers...the heart that gives the notes life, and suddenly the music comes alive, pure joy to play, and a delight for others to hear.

When we fell in love, we had the music right, we knew the song we would play...and we risked...we dared to pour out our hearts to one another...we revealed our inmost feelings, our hopes, our thoughts...and like a composer making final touches on a masterpiece, Jesus poured out His blessings and grace on us, bringing the music to perfection...and every day, we get to play variations on the theme He wrote.... the music He put in our hearts...the love we share...and we play our music with joyous abandon, a melody of love we offer back to Him who first gave it to us.
