Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Ps 37:4
For me today these words take on a new significance. For many years I have strummed away on my guitar and keyboard, writing down the words and music that come to me in various ways. Trying to express what my heart feels through music and lyrics. I’m not trained professionally so it’s a rather amateurish affair, but an affair of the heart it is and the mind, body and soul for that matter.
For we are all created in the image and likeness of God. And we have the endless possibility of expressing something which is truly unique and will never be repeated in time or eternity by anyone else. Whether it be something as mundane as preparing a meal, sweeping the floor, changing a nappy, or doing our job of work. Or as profound as giving birth to a new life, operating on someone, hearing a confession, or giving the Sacrament of the sick. Every action is of value because we are joined to Him who is Love and who has a name. Jesus Christ. So everything we do is glorified and taken up into the Divine life of the Trinity.
How blessed we are!
Today I am ‘launching’ my new cd. This is one of the desires of my heart, which I hope is joined to the desire of the Saviour’s heart and indeed your hearts, as we are all in this together. I bless God because He blesses me in ways I would not have imagined. Maybe not how I would have chosen, but I hope I am all the better for it.
My prayer is that this music would in some way touch your heart, or move you to prayer, or inspire you to turn your face to the King. In fact anything that would move you in His direction would be all that I could hope. For He is our source and our destination and please God we will all arrive in Him, through Him and with Him and sing a few songs together when we get there!
God bless you,
