2013-10-29 - Soundtracks
When I was recently driving from Georgia to NC, I passed two little dogs in a quaint little town, "going on their rounds," prancing along the sidewalk. They were so cute, and the music that happened to be playing on my radio, at that moment, sounded like it was played just for them - a soundtrack to their frolicking.
That led me to the thought that we all have soundtracks in our lives. I tend to play CDs and listen to radio music that fit the mood I'm in, or the stage of my life that I'm experiencing. I imagine that many of you are like that, as well.
If we are dreading the work week, and depressed by the "everyday grind," our soundtrack might be "Rainy Days and Mondays Always Get Me Down (Paul Williams, Roger Nichols)." Sometimes, when out hearts are particularly thankful for God's salvation, our soundtrack might be "Amazing Grace (John Newton)."
If we are feeling particularly down and out, we might be singing in our hearts, along with Ray Charles' lyrics, "...if it wasn't for bad luck, now now, Oh, oh, I wouldn't have no luck at all."
I would like to encourage you to figure out what the soundtrack of your life is right now? And what would you like it to be in the future? From anyone who would like to share, I would enjoy hearing your answers.
