The kind of day that sounded like an orchestra warming up?
You know, the sounds of countless instruments, all being fine-tuned at once?
Well, yeah…I’ve had many days that featured an orchestra being fine-tuned; in fact, many, throughout my years here on earth.
The shrill sounds of ugliness, out of tune, noise—in terms of the plight of the world—it can be chronic pain, depression or anxiety.
Or, it might be an impossible situation, that is relentless, and out of control. Maybe a diagnosis, that is anything but pleasant…out of tune.
In an orchestra, think about the majestic harp, which most associate with Heaven. However, in “one of those impossible kind of days” instead of a smooth and satisfying glissando, producing melodious angelic tones, all that abounds, is plinking, and plucking, and noise.
Well, I kind of imagine the world as an orchestra on a stage, with the audience in its wake, or grip.
The orchestra is a conglomeration of various instruments, all different, yet all can produce music, alone or cohesively, resulting in a resounding climatic crescendo.
So too are individuals, and like instruments, all are different, but all created by God.
And, like the instruments, we can perform alone, or together in unison.
Well…you may be asking, “what is this individual referring to? What is this person trying to write about?”
Quick answer, life…God.
Life is a series of warm-ups and tune-ups…so, we can either be in tune, or seriously out of tune. Shrieking and clanging, snapping our strings off, and not producing a single peaceful sound.
We can choose to walk to our “own beat,” or be a part of a greater orchestra, and be in sync, while listening to His Voice.
God, is our Maestro, and He alone can bring it together. He is the One that can produce harmony and peace. He is the Conductor of our souls, and no matter what we’re going through, He lifts us up, and is capable of so many glissandos on the harp.
When we play in unison with His Orchestra, we harmonize in accordance to His plan and purpose, and the result is an outstanding symphony, better than any heard before.
The world can be ugly, painful, lonely, hard, frustrating, impossibly difficult to say the least. But, with God—and only with God— we can produce sounds of glory, and raise our voices in praise and exaltation, and thus cancel out the “noise” of life in the flesh, while refreshing the “Spirit” and soothing our souls, resulting in a masterpiece, by the Amazing Master Himself…our LORD and King.
Now, I ask you this: Have you ever had one of those days?
You know, the kind of day the Orchestra was playing beautifully, and the music was so special, that it felt like velvet on your ears, and a balm for your soul? Where everything is in harmony? Everything is in accordance to His will, and timing?
Where the noise is hushed by His peace, where the broken hearts are healed, and the pain is gone?
Where the agony is replaced by joy, and the tears are met with smiles and love? Where the impossible, has now become possible?
Where His hands touched your face with grace?
So, I ask, have you ever had one of those beautiful kind of days?
Yeah, well so have I…
