The art of arranging sounds in time so as to produce a
continuous, unified, and evocative composition, as through melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre.
Music is powerful. Certain notes strung together wield the ability to bring a grown man to tears. It can sooth a cranky baby to sleep, and lead a tormented spirit into a place of solitude. When I play music I can run a faster mile, exuberantly attack mountains of ironing, and find the inspiration to write.
I love music, and I love how music can be used to overcome dreary days, messy houses, and downcast spirits. Most of all, I love how music can refocus my heart and mind drawing me to seek and savor the things that matter, Eternity, Forever, and my Savior!
I would like to have some fun and switch things up today by offering a giveaway for a CD that I discovered early this year. This is an amazing collection of music that presents the most amazing story of love, redemption, faith, sacrifice, and hope. The title is called Music inspired by the Story. This CD will have you dancing one minute and in tears the next. You will be inspired by its message you as fight daily to Overcome and finish well!
To enter simply reply in the comment section and let me know you would like the CD. I will hold the drawing Monday. Feel free to pass this along to your friends!
Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing:
thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;
12To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee,
and not be silent. O LORD my God,
I will give thanks unto thee for ever.
Music does all those things you so beautifully sang in your post with your pen. Music does transport and transform. So glad our God gives us the gift of music. Know tomorrow in worship will be filled with glorious praise. Can’t wait for the music.
I too can not wait for tomorrow. I almost posted about it, but knew I could never get down on words what my heart and spirit feels when I am with my forever family praising God! Blessings to you and a glorious Sunday worship to you!
Music is indeed powerful. It can affect people in so many ways.

I too love music. I’ve always thought the voice of God might be delivered as music to our ears, hearts and minds.
