Music notes make up our playlist's
The beauty of our playlist
There is a beauty in a playlist. The musicality of voices 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 at that moment you 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 and often does, 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 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 meanings of lyric be specific 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 heart another unless we gain access to their secrets or truths.
Music is relative, depending on personal attachment. It’s just so intricate in the real understanding of a heart that beat 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 to your purpose unto Him.
However do not get caught up in the differences, for each of His works is a purposeful occurrence of 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 the variety of interests of others, 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 a multitude of playlists, and again the songs can be placed together into a symphony of beautiful music. Just keep space on your playlist for 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 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.”
We all have different playlists, and our circumstances may change them up. As human’s, 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 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 broken humanity 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.

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 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?
