Theme Music

I love it when God moves in the routine moments of our lives. What seems spontaneous and unplanned to us is neither, but rather a staged event to express His love and focus. In my case, these moments are usually filled with humor. At a recent eye doctor appointment I really had my eyes opened... and it had nothing to do with the actual exam. Eye doctors seem to have a room for every test/procedure they run you through. You sit in one room, get tested and then they move to another. Charts, lens flipping, pictures, drops, and each one done in another room... you do a lot of traveling at an eye doctor's office. All this traveling, opened the door for God to reveal something musical to my heart.

It happened this way...

Eye doctor tech lady (as she was leading me from exam room to exam room): You sure do hum a lot.

Me: I have theme music

Eye doctor tech lady: (Laughing) Why do you need theme music?

Me: Doesn't everybody?

As we leave yet another room...we're both humming!
(Theme music is catchy!)

I wonder...isn't that how the Gospel, sung through my heart,
is supposed to be?

Isn’t the reverb of the Gospel message from my heart meant to be an unrehearsed, but purposeful, audible cue that something wonderful is happening inside of me?

Jesus downloads the theme music of heaven into human hearts, the vessels designed to carry the song of Salvation. The tone, the tune, and the tempo of the music, all dialed into the frequency of His love. God chooses our voice, the sound our life makes, to play His theme music through… that, amazes me.

I want my theme music, the song of the Gospel to be a catchy, can't get it out of your head tune that draws others to the Messiah.

What about you? Do you hear the theme music?

“He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see what he has done and be amazed. They will put their trust in the LORD.” Psalm 40:3 Tags: ,,,

Jay, I love your thoughts here. Music/worship is such an integral part if what God created us for; and if we are truly listening, He has definitely given us reason to sing. I do hope to always here my theme song. :)

Thanks Phil! Our worship of the King is meant to draw others into the songfest!

This is right up my alley today, Jay! My husband and I lead contemporary worship at our church, and I'm always playing those songs over and over in my head. Often, I'll wake up thinking of a praise song and it will stay with me all day. What a great way to pray, praise, and worship!

Sing to God a new song sista! Thanks Martha for dropping by!

So long as I don't hear someone humming "Gonna Fly Now", we're good - thanks for the smile, Jay!

First, if someone hears me hum they are for sure going to wonder either what I have been smoking or what in the world is that song? Yeah, I can't sing and reckon that goes for humming also. Second, great idea expressed Jay! There should be no sweeter sound to the human ear than the music of Jesus sung through and by our hearts.

No Biker songs for you Bill? As for me..."Joyful Noise" fits very well!
Jay Cookingham said…
Humming it now in your honor bro'! ;-)

There's pretty good volume to your personal theme music, my friend. The song of the Kingdom radiates to those around you. To the King!

Only you, brother. Only you... Great story! I too have theme music... scary... I just need to share it in public. You're right. No coincidences and the world needs to see the children of God with a song in their hearts outpouring on this world.
Jay Cookingham said…
You're too kind my brother! May I say I enjoy the theme music heard through your heart as well!
