TITLE: A Melody in the Sky

I was on my way to work this morning enjoying an absolutely beautiful sky that God had provided for us on this day. The sky was lit up with the morning sun and displayed an assortment of clouds. These clouds were mostly white and fluffy like cotton candy. The under sides were a little dark, not rainy you understand, just dark from the shadows. The higher up I looked the brighter things looked. My heart leapt with the revelation that this was a message for us. God wants us to look up to Him beyond the shadows in our lives and see things from a brighter perspective.

I felt a melody in my heart. You see, a melody is when all the notes are working together to bring beautiful music to your ears. I could feel the overall perfect rhythm making this a perfect song for this day. When I arrived at work, I turned in the Bible to look up the word melody and I found this beautiful passage in Psalm 92:1-4 “It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High, to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, to the music of ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp. For you make me glad by your deeds, O Lord; I sing for joy at the works of your hands.” (NIV)

I became aware that this melody I was feeling was not for me to keep to myself. It was to share. First, it was to be used to praise the Lord; and secondly, it was to proclaim God’s love and faithfulness. Lastly, I am to sing for joy at the works of His hands. I hope to keep this melody in my heart for some time to come. I hope you experience it, too.

I liked this entry. I personally needed to hear this message today.

Thanks for sharing.

What I like - you were direct and to the point. Your sentences were clear. You stayed focused and it flowed.
What I might change - I guess add more to your content perhaps? The ending could be abit stronger - also maybe bump the creativity up and don't use the topic word as you did.
You are a good writer in this piece you did get your message across very well.

I really liked your point, and how well you expressed it. I found the repetition of the same words very close to each other (clouds and sky in the first paragraph, for instance), to take away from it a bit, but that just may be me! Thanks so much!
