The Master’s Strings of Love

February 28, 2015

I met a master violinist in Jerusalem last night. I listened to her talk about how all the strings of the violin work together to make the beautiful music. Only one string cannot deliver the magnificence. They must all be tightened to the appropriate tension. When I awake in this morning I ask the Lord to tighten the strings of my heart that will join others in bringing the beauty of love to the hearts of those I meet today. “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118

I am a single string
Seeking to be tuned to life
Tightened by the Lord
I want the sound of your heart
That’s tuned to the mind of Love

I will make music
I cannot do it alone
I am looking for other strings
Tightened by your love
Who are practicing daily
Tuned to the rhythm of joy

This discipline works
Orchestrated with others
Who are listening
To the director of Life
Compelled by the Master’s love

I am in the orchestra
Watching every move he makes
Moving with grace and rhythm
Surprised with the sound

All those who hear it
Cannot deny its beauty
Know it is from God
