Good Morning! Today’s Bible reading is –
7 In the same way, you husbands must give honor to your wives. Treat your wife with understanding as you live together. She may be weaker than you are, but she is your equal partner in God’s gift of new life. Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered. 1 Peter 3:7 (NLT)
There is a wonderful freedom in your soul when you submit to God’s authority over you and let Him put you where you go and be the supply of your need: when you submit to those who He put in authority over you and take the responsibility He gave you your conscience can rest at ease. Behind me in my office is a Roland recording studio mixer that probably cost $3000 dollars 15 years ago when it was new, I think I gave $1300 for it but it is so complicated to use I never got a CD out of it: I would watch the DVD on how to do what I was trying to do and I would follow the steps and there are 2 songs on that thing that are ready to edit and record but I could never get it done… I could rewire or fix the thing but using it is beyond me. So I used Window Voice recorder the last 2 days and recorded 4 songs and they are already in an album on this computer. God made me wound up real tight and when I stick to doing what He made me to do, which is sing and play music, my mainspring is ran down and I have peace: when I have to go through seemingly endless and intricate steps of set-up to hit the record button I am too aggravated to sing and usually have to figure out how to delete what I just did. Likewise I don’t know how to work all the marriage stuff and everything I do seem to be mistakes: I have come to the realization that I need God to do all the designing and arranging and like making my album… I’m just going to keep singing, writing, playing and building instruments to play on. The first step to submission to God’s authority is to have faith in Him, know that He knows what He is doing, and leave all that stuff that drives me out of my mind up to Him… and just be obedient to He who knows what He is doing and is responsible for His child’s welfare and well-being. My voice isn’t the greatest, and my hearing is going so without my monitor headphones I seem to sing a little off key to my own guitar: I have wasted much precious time trying to figure everything out when I should have just been singing… God gave me songs to give to the world and I am just going to sing. If you don’t understand how I am, I just took my 5th guitar break as I have been writing this to get my focus back: I thank God for the music that He uses to keep my thoughts together and I will do my best to play each of my life’s notes as the Master has written because when you follow the music of the Almighty Composer… what a glorious Symphony it will be… I used to be that tuba player that always played in the rest (mark denoting silence), and everybody blamed me for messing up the song.
Good Day and Godspeed!
