Love is All You Need

It’s one of those days.  Cloudy outside and inside.  I’ve been reflecting about where I’ve come from and how far I’ve come.  I’m sure God thinks I’ve come farther than I do.  He’s good like that.

I was remembering years ago, when my husband and I were pastoring a church and doing all the “stuff” that is expected of you – from people – I was at a place inside that wanted more.  I love music and how it speaks to me.  All types of music speaks to me.  There was a new type of worship music coming out of California and other places that was welcomed by the church at large.  But after a while I was discontent with it.  Seemed like the same words in a different style.

Don’t misunderstand me, the songs were amazing and full of truthful words.  They touched my heart in many ways.  But I wanted more.

Well, the Lord led me to a conference in North Carolina and a man came on the stage to lead in worship.  I lost it.  Sounds and words came from his heart in a way that I could relate.  He changed my life that day.  I’ve never been the same.  .. Most don’t understand the music I’m touched by.  Some do.  A few like – hearted people that have come into my life over the years.  And I know there are more that will cross my path.

I am so thankful to Jesus for meeting me years ago and continues to speak to me in music and creativity.
