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
