As I sat at the keyboard trying to learn a new song, the melody was easy
to pick out, for the song was familiar, so I knew what was right, of those
notes I had no doubt.
But the left hand was a different thing, the chord names were written down for me, but they weren't familiar, so I had to try out many combinations of notes...was this right?
No, try another, could it be this, hmmm, let me see. It was trial and error, my fingers searching for the right sound, the one that would make the sound true, and when I found the exact right notes and played them with the melody, all was just right, I'd found it, I just knew.
When I had picked out all the chords in the song, and could play it without hesitation, the song was so lovely as the notes floated up, like a musical meditation.
It reminded me of my life before I met you; I net Jesus who gave me the melody; a new song I could play, a new life just begun; I wanted more, but what could that be?
I was lonely, I knew that, I prayed about it every day, and pounded on
God's door with my wishes and desires, could there not be another way?
The silence of the answer told me to quiet down and reflect that it was God's way not mine that was to be, and until I really accepted that, I could not grow and become the real me.
It took a long time to learn to lay down my wants, and to pick up what God wanted me to do, and finally I said, "If this is what You want for me, that that is what I want too."
The minute I said that, and decided to follow what God had in mind, that's when He poured out His blessings on me, more than I could count, there were so many of every kind.
The best one of all, was the one He saved for last, the one that I was sure would never come true, God gently took my hand and put it in yours, and gave me the desire of my heart when He gave me you.
God could not give me what I wished, when I was demanding my way, but when I decided that I would put Him first, then I got back so much more than I'd given away.
Now the music is complete, the right notes are all in place, and each day we play a brand new song, one that celebrates our love, and gives thanks to God, full of joy that we are where we belong!
Every day is a new song, each hour and minute the notes that play the loveliest song I ever knew, for every day it is a brand new way to tell you how much I love you!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
