Playing Every Note

Make every note count.
A single note doesn't amount to much. Or does it?

I began taking piano lessons when I was ten years old. That's a long time ago. My love of playing piano has only deepened over the years. You would think that after 45 years of playing an instrument that one would stop learning, but that isn't true. I keep learning, keep pushing, and continue to be amazed by the power of music.

Lately, I've been enjoying playing the song "Morning Has Broken." It is a great way to start the day, reminding me of the Lord's mercies, boundless and fresh each and every morning.

As I was playing this week, the Lord showed me something. If I sat down at the piano and attempted to play the song, it was less than it could be - less than it should be.

I found that when I focused on playing each and every note with passion and feeling, the end result was different. It was special. It was beautiful.

There is something better than playing the song - it is playing every note. 


So it is in life and in our walk with the Lord. We give our lives to the Lord, and want to make our lives count for Him, but it is in the days and in the moments where real beauty lies and where we can really LIVE. 


The moments are important. Make yours count today.
