The music of living

By Jim Langham

“And you are to them like a love song by one who has a beautiful voice.”

Those words, hidden deep in the book of Ezekiel (33:32) open the chorus books of heaven to a fact closest to the musical heart of God. Everyone has a song within, if they will allow it to flow and fill out the chords of the heart.

Oh, it may not come out in literal musical scores, but the lyrics may express themselves through a well-timed hug, an appropriate word of encouragement at just the right time, or a silent prayer known only to God.

It may reflect personal traits that are meaningful to others or an unsuspected talent just waiting to develop. It’s what makes you “you” and it can often be heard more clearly by others than by self.
