Music Notes Make up Our Playlist's
The beauty of our playlist
There is beauty in a playlist. The musicality of voices as soft or loud as joy or pain spews into a web of lyrics. Looking at the artist, one can imagine the intentional heart that puts together the litany of emotions. Words and sounds allow us to relate the feeling that expresses our spirit when we first hear it.
A melody seeps into your brain and finds you they’re thinking. The music, be it comforting or harsh, delightful or tragic, can often trigger a memory or current thought. A life event or happening that finds companionship in the story unfolding. Fire is burning, and the clouds are swirling into the verses as they piece together. The listener is seeking commonality in the limitless notes as they capture and wrap around a situation that has brought their attention to the musical message.
Interpreting the lyrical capsules is up to the listener. How possible for meaning diversity depending on the moral intricacy of the one hearing? Does one listen intently, with a response based on how the melody reaches the soul's nerve endings? Don't lyrics speak to the listening heart? Perhaps they bring the resolution or change to a life that can cause immense growth? The truth is we don't understand the nature of another unless we gain access to their secrets or truths.
Music is relative, depending on the personal attachment. It’s just so intricate in the real understanding of a heart that beats as an individual. No one soul is the same. Though similarities unite people, this does not negate that each is one of a kind. Just as notes intertwine to create masterpieces of a song, so has it been in creating You? God has woven you and, therefore, your distinct in who you are and your purpose unto Him.
However, do not get caught up in the differences. Each of God's works is a purposeful occurrence relating to one another and resolute action in bringing glory to His plan. Do we know a person by what they listen to or by the interactions we have with them? Is it not possible that the One so much higher than the collective we are deciding your playlist?
Keep your playlist diverse, always attempting to understand others' variety of interests, and accepting and welcoming perspective. The playlist should evolve and challenging your contacts with others. Our playlist should always allow for the newness of diversity within reason of your values.
We’re like the coat of Joseph in the Bible. We have many colors. The patchwork of Joseph’s cloak is different materials, and yet the colors may have been the same with different hues.
We can have many playlists and place the songs together into a symphony of beautiful music. Just keep the room on your playlist for a place to grow, a place to explore our differences, and a place to welcome new entries to our comfort zones or boxes, if you will.
Playlist Song #1 (About a young persons journey out on their own forming opinions of life for themselves as they encounter life. Claire is a town.)
We All Have Different Playlists
“Go make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son; I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
We all have different playlists, and our circumstances may change them up. As humans, we falter in the interpretation of someone’s playlist. Everyone wants to be followers of the unconditional love of Christ and givers of said love. We all can witness well when in our messenger roles, yet we sometimes fail 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 our brokenness of humanity's weaknesses and know we want all is to be for Him. Remember, it is hard to turn away from the things that tear it down. I pray we find real 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 are the same; 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 changing our playlist, living for God's purpose.
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?
