The other night when I couldn't sleep, I did some blog surfing. I ran across a statement that struck me and I have pondered it and decided to steal it. Remember me mentioning a while ago that I have a friend who has a song of the day?...well this relates.
The blog writer said that she loves to worship in song and loves it even more when the words or melody haunt her in that she goes to sleep with them on her lips and wakes to find that they are the subconscious soundtrack to her day (or something like that). I wish I could quote exactly what was said, then I wouldn't feel like I was committing plagiarism.
But the thought that the song or words is a "subconscious soundtrack of my day" had me thinking. What a beautiful, eloquent way to state it. You know the feeling, right? When you were so moved or touched by something that you know the Lord anointed (and maybe He did it just for you...to draw you closer to Him), that it stays with you as that soundtrack...pointing you to Him and his glory. Hmmm. I really like that. I think I'll blog every now and then and just call it my subconscious soundtrack.
"I have heard so many songs,
listened to a thousand tongues,
but there is one that sounds above them all.
The Father's song,
the Father's love,
You sung it over me
and for eternity it's written on my heart.
Heaven's perfect melody,
the Creator's symphony,
You are singing over me,
the Father's song.
Heaven's perfect mystery,
the King of love has sent for me
and now you're singing over me
the Father's song." (Matt Redman)
I know it may not move you, but I love the image of a parent singing over the precious child they love. What could be more beautiful than the FATHER singing over us? Oh, to hear it! The song of His grace...the song of His love!...The Father's song. The one only He can write...written on our hearts...written in love and grace into the depths of our hearts for all eternity.
So, what's your soundtrack today?
