Music

“There is nothing in the world so much like prayer as music is.”        —William P. Merrill

To me, music is not like prayer, it is prayer. I can sit in the church and listen to the music and be pulled out of myself. Attending a service where everyone sings out can touch my soul. I can be move to tears by a beautiful hymn. I thank God that he has gifted us with music.

Thank you god, for the beautiful music. May we continue to be touched by it and drawn closer to you. AMEN

Here I am Lord

Here I am, Lord. Is it I Lord? I have heard you calling in the night. I will go Lord. If you need me. I will hold your people in my heart. Dan Schutte

I love this hymn. It is one of my favorites and always speaks to me. When I sing the words I can feel God calling me to do his will. Do you have a hymn or song that pulls you into the presence of God? If you do sing it often. Let the words open your heart to answer God’s call. He is calling you and me. Will we answer?

God you call us in many different ways. Help us to heed your voice and follow. AMEN
