April 17, 2007

I suppose music ministers to me with a magnitude that runs deep through, touching places that naturally do not expose themselves. Maybe it’s the harmony that aligns with my soul, maybe it’s the beat that meshes with my own heartbeat, or maybe it’s simply the tones and harmonics that resonate in the air passing through my eardrum…okay…maybe music just contains something special–something spiritual. Anyhow, this song really blessed me tonight as I see my world shifting around me…31 dead at Virginia Tech, death, horror, nuclear scares, AIDS crisis, suicide bombers…all the way to a more personal sphere containing an ambiguous future, love, sisters growing up and moving on, family, friends that come and go, transition, student to teacher… change.

Changes come.

Hearing this song, I remember my grounding in Chrsit. My footing lies in Him. Abide. Dwell. Rest. …in His presence. He orchestrates everything, and I mean everything. The Beatles say it best, “Nothing’s gonna change my world.” There is a steady peace that resides inside me, that sustains me. I am confident in Him–TRUST. Through it all, I trust. Walk, walk in faith– one day at a time.

“Across the Universe”
The Beatles

Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
restless wind inside a letter box
they tumble blindly as
they make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
are ringing through my open ears
exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
Nothing’s gonna change my world
