[CF Devotionals] 2009-02-20 - Music

Music is a big part of my life. Music is a big part of most people's lives. Many couples have an "our song". Big events in life have music at them - weddings and funerals. Much of life, like movies, has a soundtrack to it. At least that's how it seems to me but like I said music is important to me.

As important as it is to me though, I have zero musical skill. I have tried to play guitar, keyboard, and drums and can do none of them. When I sing I hit every note except the right one. When I try to clap with a song I'm that guy that everyone else looks at to see if I have a headset on making me clap to a different song. And this is why I'm grateful for God so lovingly inspiring David to write things like the ninety-fifth Psalm

Psalm 95:1-3 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. 2 Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. 3 For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

It doesn't have to be pretty it just has to be joyful. In God's choir and in his band I can still have a place. Wow that's some great news for me - bad news for choir directors and worship leaders but good news for me.
