I am a singer-songwriter. A couple of days ago I woke with a song I wrote running through my head. The song is entitled – Righteous – based on Psalm 37:25. The words of the song take me back to an earlier time growing up in Trinidad. I can hear the beautiful, soaring tenor of Bruce Herbert delivering a different rendition of this song. I want to always remember his rendition.
I am chuckling as I listen to the words echoing in my head because they remind me of of how good God is and how fickle my faith is. Our older son, Sam, will graduate from university in May. He has also landed this really good job in his field. He starts on May 6. Favour from the Father! When favour happens we sometimes don’t recognize it because we weren’t really expecting it. To the first disciples [Matthew 6], Jesus said:
Consider the lilies. Consider the birds of the air. Stop worrying!
I need to hear that! I have included an audio clip of “the song in my head”. Have a listen.
Let’s choose to adopt an attitude of gratitude and expectation instead of worry and despair.
