Have you ever played the game of LIFE? This is a favorite board game to play at our house. There is always much laughter because I end up with twins and at least one or two other children, one game I had more children than would fit in my little car token. Ugh…as much as I love children, not sure I could parent eight of them yet I love to teach classrooms full of them. At home though, one is enough.
My daughter snapped today’s photographs and said, “I know you there is a blog in these photos. What do you think?” with the biggest smile on her face and I instantly knew it was a reminder to play the keys to life and make the music God has for me. I took piano lessons for a year and due to the patience and diligence of my teacher I learned how to not just “hit” the keys but to “play” them in designated orders and sequences to make music.
Life is the same as playing the piano. We can sit around plunking the keys with no particular order and hap-hazard banging or we can take the time to learn and focus on how to use the things in our life God has given us to play the best musical piece possible. I spent years plunking out a bad 3 blind mice but thankfully today I am able to play “Just as I am” ~ definitely a God thing.
Are you carelessly plunking keys or making music?
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent
and set me high upon a rock.
Then my head will be exalted
above the enemies who surround me;
at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make music to the LORD.
Hear my voice when I call, LORD;
be merciful to me and answer me.
