This morning I began to think about what the birds were singing about – what were they talking about? Were they talking about how beautiful the day is? Were they talking about how exciting of a time this is on campus – intramural basketball playoffs, Makin’ Music, and mid-terms? I’d like to think that perhaps… these birds were singing songs of praise to the Father for all of the beautiful blessings that are continually poured out on them—pine needles and other things to build their nests, water for them to drink, bird feed that people put out for them, and the beautiful sunshine to keep them warm.
Last night I was reading Isaiah 40 and was in such awe of the beauty of the words in verses 26-31.
“Look up into the heavens.
Who created all the stars?
He brings them out like an army, one after another,
calling each by its name.
Because of His great power and incomparable strength,
not a single one is missing.
O Jacob, how can you say the Lord does not see your troubles?
O Israel, how can you say God ignores your rights?
Have you never heard?
Have you never understood?
The Lord is the everlasting God,
the Creator of all the earth.
He never grows weak or weary.
No one can measure the depths of his understanding.
He gives power to the weak
and strength to the powerless.
Even youths will become weak and tired,
and young men will fall in exhaustion.
But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength.
They will soar high on wings like eagles.
They will run and not grow weary.
They will walk and not faint.”
Our God is so good. He created each start that is millions and millions of miles away from us that we see at night. He created the sun that gives us just the right about of heat to keep us warm and bring us joy. He created the grass, trees, bushes, and flowers that give off oxygen, so we can breathe. He created the birds that chirp and sing in the mornings. But even more than all of that, He created you and me to live on this earth. He created us in His image so that we can reflect Him and be ambassadors of His.
He created us so that we can sing with the birds praises to His Name.
Lauren Diagle has a song titled “Salt and Light.” One of the lines in that song says –
“Let my life be a song revealing WHO YOU ARE.”
Your life is a song. God is the songwriter. He tunes your heart. His Words are sung through YOUR LIFE. An instrument has no life until someone plays it--He is breathing life into you. He is making the most beautiful melody with your life. Let Him write your song. Let Him create your life into the most beautiful grammy winnin’, crown recevin’, streets of gold walkin’, song.
