That Song in My Head

Guitars

My husband plays guitar, not professionally, but he will occasionally play Christian worship songs for our church ministries. A couple of years ago, he was trying to learn the song below, and whenever he had some spare time, he would diligently work on it. He had left it up on our fridge when I “happened” to have one of those extremely challenging days with the kids. As I walked into the kitchen and reached for the refrigerator door, my eyes immediately focused on that piece of paper, and I began to hum the song that I did not realize was already in my memory bank from all those days hearing my husband practice. It was timely. I surely needed encouragement and a reminder of what I really needed to focus on, despite all the million things (well, it seems that many) coming at me that day.

Early this morning when it was still dark out, Gabriel was up and ready for the day. I wasn’t. It was a bad combination. It’s times like these when communication with Gabriel is challenging, to say the least. I have to be ready, awake, and mentally alert to communicate effectively with Gabriel. Instead, I was frustrated and confused really. I’m not an expert on my son, but I do my best to understand him. Only God is the expert on all things Gabriel, for He made him. Thankfully, by God’s grace, I shook off my frustrations and got through the morning with no major issues. Then, I went to Sunday church service, and guess what was sung? Like I said, “Timely.”

I will bless the Lord forever
I will trust Him at all times
He has delivered me from all fear
He has set my feet upon a rock
I will not be moved
And I’ll say of the Lord

You are my shield, my strength
My portion, deliverer
My shelter, strong tower
My very present help in time of need

Whom have I in heaven but You
There’s none I desire beside You
You have made me glad
And I’ll say of the Lord

You are my shield, my strength
My portion, deliverer
My shelter, strong tower
My very present help in time of need
