My good friend Debbie over at Just Another 15 Minutes posted a challenge on her blog: to publicly give thanks for a specific aspect of our lives on each of the 30 days in November. I am taking that challenge, and I hope you will join us!
Day 4 – I am thankful for music.
Music is my second language. I cannot remember a time when I didn’t know how to read music. Some of my earliest childhood memories involve singing and pounding on the piano keyboard. I was blessed to be taught by several amazing music teachers throughout my life, as I learned piano, clarinet, and voice.
God created music. It is a universal language for a reason. God created music so that we can worship Him in song. Music is the soul’s language of expression. God has gifted me with a desire to praise and worship Him with my musical talents. That is why one of my favorite modern worship songs is “I Could Sing of Your Love Forever.” I am looking forward to eternity in Heaven, when I can spend forever using music to worship my Creator.
