My heart, O God, is steadfast, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.
Sitting with a young composition student yesterday, I help him find his way as he places note after note, phrase after phrase, on the staff. He asks a question, I make a suggestion. He responds. I’m reminded: our lives are compositions formed by choices we make, how we react to what happens around us – and our response to God as he gently nudges us to move forward or rethink. Pen ready? Make your song amazing!
