There is a beauty in a playlist and the musicality of voices so soft or loud, as joy or pain is brilliantly spewed into a web of lyrics. Looking directly at the artist, one can imagine the intent of the heart that puts together the litany of emotions. The words and sounds allow us to relate the very feeling that is matched to your heart at that moment you first hear it. The melody seeps into your brain and finds you they’re thinking. The music, be it comforting or harsh, delightful or dramatically tragic, can and often does, trigger a past memory or current thought. A life happening that finds companionship in the story unfolding. Fire is burning and the clouds are swirling into the verses as they are eloquently pieced together. The listener is seeking a commonality in the limitless notes as they capture and wrap around a situation that has brought their attention to this very ritornelle. The interpretation of the lyrical capsules is left to the listener. How possible then for the meanings to be diverse depending on the moral intricacy of the one hearing? Does one listen with intent as to like or dislike based on how the melody reaches the nerve endings of the soul? Could the meaning of the same chorus be specific to the listening heart? Could what is being delivered be the resolution or change to a life that can cause immense growth? Is it possible one does not fully understand the heart and or mind of another unless they are given specific entry to its secrets or truths?
Music is so relative, to each person at any given time. At the same time, it’s just so intricate in the true understandings of a heart that beat solely as an individual. No one heart is exactly the same though similarities unite people in many ways, this does not negate the fact that each is one of a kind. Just as notes are intertwined to create masterpieces of a song, so has it been in the creation of YOU. God has woven you and, therefore, you’re uniquely distinct in who you are and to your purpose unto Him. However do not get caught up in the differences, for each of His works is to be utilized in a purposeful occurrence of relating to one another and resolute action in bringing glory to His plan. Do we truly know a person by what they listen to or by what they wear or for that matter by the interactions we have with them? Is it not possible that One so much greater than the collective we are deciding your playlist?
Keep your playlist diverse always attempting to understand the variety of others from a very broad and accepting and welcoming perspective. The playlist should be evolving and challenging your contacts with others. Our playlist should always allow for the newness of diversity within reason to your own values.
We’re like the coat of many colors, as to the symbolism of the coat of Joseph in the Bible. The patchwork of Joseph’s coat may have been made of different materials and yet the colors may have been the same with simply different hues. We can have a multitude of playlists and yet the songs can be placed together into a symphony of beautiful music. Just keep room on your playlist for when there is room then there is a place to grow, a place to explore our difference, and a place to welcome new entries to our comfort zones or boxes if you will.

We All Have Different Playlists
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
We all have different playlists and our circumstances may at times change them up. We are all human's that falter in the area of interpretation of someone’s playlist. We all tend to want to be followers of the unconditional love of Christ and giver's of said love. We all can witness well when in our roles of messenger and yet we slip when in our boxes and comfort zones. I pray we all improve our interpretations of others and see only that which will build His Kingdom. I pray we forgive the weaknesses of our humble humanity and know we want all that is to be for Him. Know it is hard to turn away from the things that tear it down. I pray we find true strength in walking for Him together.
Playlist Song #2 Talk about conflict here it is Love and Relationship ~
A Playlist All For HIM!
How about this being written on our hearts today?
I love you and I know you love me, I forgive you and I know you forgive me as well. We are living for the King. We will make mistakes, but we will seek Him first and keep on changing our playlist, living it all for Him.
Proverbs 26: 20-22
“Without wood a fire goes out; without gossip a quarrel dies down. As charcoal to embers and as wood to fire, so is a quarrelsome person for kindling strife. The words of a gossip are like choice morsels; they go down to the inmost parts.
Answer the question...
ARE YOU WORTH IT? Does God want you and love you and did He die for you and can you make mistakes and be forgiven by His sacrifice and learn to live for Him?
