It always amazes how beautifully all the different sounds of a nicely put together orchestra fit together. If an individual tone of one of the instruments were isolated by itself, it would probably seem harsh or unnecessary. Yet when mixed together by a skillful composer, the individual notes and sounds become beautiful music.
Like a master composer, God knows just how to orchestrate our days and life much better than we do. We watch Him as he orchestrate so many things–delaying company so we can finish something needing to be done, watching over trips and helping us “stumble” across the things we need, arranging special times for us to meet with people, and guiding over a myriad of preparations. There is such a joy and peace in simply sitting back and watching Him unfold the details of our days rather than believing that we control anything. Yet it’s all too easy to forget that God–not the circumstances, ourselves or others–is really in charge.
This month, may we live in the peace that comes from sitting back, trusting God, and enjoying as He orchestrates our lives into beautiful music each day.
“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3 (KJV)
