What does one see when one looks upon the captive beauty of Teton County? What do you see? An accident? Is it happenstance? Does it look intentional? Or does it look accidentally perfect on purpose? Is all you that have seen been in pictures? Paper will not translate what the soul needs to hear, see, smell and taste.
Truth is, everything was created through the Word. Everything – created on purpose, for a purpose.
“For everything comes from him and exists by his power and is intended for his glory. All glory to him forever! Amen.” Romans 11:36 NLT
We gaze upon the wonder of our beautiful state and we stop and reflect the significance in our lives. Our eyes find peace in the vista of our beautiful state. Our ears hear the song of nature. Our noses capture the aroma of life in bloom. Mile after mile, road after road, mountain after mountain, we see a Creation claiming significance in its purpose. Yes Lord! We see it! We see the land we live in, and call home, pointing its purpose to You! Its purpose is to sing a song of praise as it points to You! May Your beautiful name be praised! And in that song we find beauty, peace, tranquility, heart, imagination and wonder. Blessed are those who sing a song praise along side with Creation!
Truth can be found in singing. You’ve heard a song that has captured your heart. You’ve heard someone sing with such tenderness it rendered you speechless, or a voice with such power, it commands your emotion.
And while almost all humans can’t carry a note or find a pitch, something happens when we sing the song of our heart. A song sung with an unrestricted heart releases something. It expresses the soul! What you allow to be placed there will find its way out. That’s how the soul was designed. We see it in nature, we see it in children and we can see it in a choir.
Let us not misuse what the Lord intended for good! Let us not take a mechanism that was designed for an honoring expression and exploit its abilities for a perverse one. Take away contrary and put in truth.
“The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world. God has made a home in the heavens for the sun.” Psalms 19:1-4 NLT
Lord! I pray for man to rise up in song! May our lives be a song of praise and worship to You! Thank You for placing the Worship Leaders and Choir Directors around us to guide us. Thank You for countless volunteers around our state that contribute their talents to help us praise You!
Teach us that we don’t need Celine Dions voice to sing our heart song to You. Truth is not just found in a properly tuned piano, it’s also found in a properly tuned soul. Lord tune us to Your ear! Praise You!
The time for the real truth has come. May we see You Lord as the foundation of all truth. In Jesus name we pray, amen.
