Trusting the Melody


I woke up with a song on my heart this morning. It’s been a while since this has happened.

Sometimes, there are seasons in my life this happens every day.
Sometimes, it’s more sporadic.
Sometimes, I can hear the words coming through loud and clear.
And, sometimes, like this morning, all I can hear is the melody and I can’t remember the words that go with that melody.

In my quiet time this morning, that melody kept on playing so I finally decided to look it up and remind myself of the words.

“It’s Your love that we adore.
It’s like a sea without a shore.
We’re lost in You.
We’re lost in You.”

I smiled. This is from the David Crowder song, Sometimes. I heard it playing yesterday as I was working and listening to Pandora. I hadn’t heard it in awhile.

As I thought more about this ability to hear the melody but not the words, I thought about how this is like the journey we call life.

We can hear the melody. We know and trust that it’s beautiful but we have a hard time hearing the words.

And then I thought of those words I couldn’t hear in the song.

His love is like a sea without a shore and we discover the most joy and most peace in our life when we are “lost” in it. Kind of ironic, isn’t it? Sounds like things that would make you panic…a sea without a shore and being lost. Yet, if we are swimming around in His love it’s the most beautiful place in the world.

Sometimes, there are seasons in your life when all you can hear is the melody…and that’s okay.

Trusting my lifeguard today.

      Reading this comment as Crowder plays in the background…I’ll listen enough for the both of us! But have you heard his song Come As You Are…you might like it. 🙂
