tuning your day

I really like listening to symphonies and experiencing the music from excellent orchestras.  I think I acquired this appreciation from various field trips to the orchestra when I was in elementary school and maybe from a few of those heinous piano lessons in my childhood, maybe.  I get extremely excited when I start to hear an orchestra tune for the performance – like a giddy anticipation of the ensuing excitement that is about to unfold.  Here’s a brief link to an orchestra tuning & I’d encourage you to focus on the one instrument to which all the others are attempting to match.

I bring up this example today because many of us have pieces & parts to our lives that can feel disjointed & unconnected.  Let me encourage you today, to tune your attention to the Holy Spirit to give cohesion, direction and order to what can seem random & chaotic in your life.  Sometimes we need to remove some clutter that creates cacophony & disorder.  Sometimes, we may need to slow down to hear the Holy Spirit better.  And sometimes we may need to have some internal fine-tuning so that our lives express the love of God poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit – Romans 5:5 🙂
