I’m sitting here at my desk trying to hold back tears right now. Do you know the reason? I am listening to the new David Crowder*Band cd and my heart is so full of admiration and adoration of the great Lord and Savior we serve, of His incredible beauty, grace and the privilege it is to serve Him and be used by Him to help our world out of the sickness of sin even while we still struggle against it ourselves. What amazing grace. God is good and I am so pleased that He has blessed individuals with the ability to take the most profound truth and knowledge and experiences and put them into art in novels like Ted Dekker’s The Circle Trilogy or into music like David Crowder*Band with Remedy. Wow, this is beautiful. I love you Jesus!

What an awesome experience to be part of a team. I’m so happy we’re about team ministry at
God’s placed you on different teams so that you don’t have to do it alone. The team of your marriage, your family, your ministry,
God, help us all to recognize our significance in our teams and to recognize the beauty of teamwork and synergy! Thank you Jesus!
You don’t have to do it on your own. You aren’t supposed to. You're not expected to. Enjoy the beauty and amazing experience of teamwork.

Our lives are most of the time not perfectly tuned to His will, but we worship Him anyways. We allow Him to play His perfect and beautiful song through our lives and that to Him is the most beautiful sound there could ever be. I think it’s when we are struggling to do our best to hit those notes that He is filled with the most joy because He knows we are loving Him. He sees that we want to sing His song, to be His instrument. Just like the melancholic piano at my parents’ house filled my heart with incredible joy and was beautiful to me, our song, even in the midst of trial and struggle and the feeling of failure, is a sweet, sweet sound in God’s ear that resonates in His heart through His love for us.
Today, sing to the King. Even if your life is madly out of tune. Fill His heart today with joy because you choose to sing His song to Him and let Him sing His song through you. You will be blessed by it too.
