Play a Song for Me

Play a song for me.

Play a song of heartache. Play a song of joy.

Play a song of trend. Play a song of decrepit.

Let me hear the melody . Let it fill my soul.

It will wash away the sorrow. It will wash away the pain.

For music is a healing song that will woe the flesh to bend.

Music is a song of peace, an anthem to the derelict.

And so it was, whenever the spirit from God was upon Saul, that David would take a harp and play it with his hand. Then Saul would become refreshed and well, and the distressing spirit would depart from him.

1 Samuel 16:23

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

Colossians 3:16

Comfort of Living

Each of us have a level of comfort in which we desire to live.

Each of us have a “redline.” You know.

That fuzzy little imaginary stroke that isn’t really there until you throttle it.

That line where everything is pressing in, and you literally feel like you’re going to go insane.

Each one of us have a degree of comfort in which we are willing to live.

At what level you are willing to live and of which learn to fly, there will be your leadership.

At which degree you have settled in and of which refuse to move, there will be your demotion.

Comfort can bring pleasure.

Comfort can bring complacency.

Comfort can bring static.

Too much comfort can bring cessation.

Where will you abide?

Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branchthat bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.

John 15:2

Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

1 Timothy 1:6-7

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

2 Timothy 3:1-7
