When I get caught up in the rush of life and am not listening to God, sometimes He’ll “speak” in other ways. For example, once in a grocery store I saw a disabled lady struggling with her motorized cart. I was in a big hurry, but quickly helped her and then rushed off. Later, in the bread aisle, she almost backed her cart over my foot and we shared a quick laugh. A few minutes later, she nearly collided with me in the produce aisle and she said: “This is crazy.” Then I realized that God was trying to get my attention and I said: “No–this is obviously a God thing.” We began talking and discovered that she was my voice teacher from college. We hadn’t seen each other in years! We laughed as I shared how I’d taught many young people her laying-down-to-sing breathing technique. Right there in the produce aisle, we even busted into some of her opera tunes! She was touched to tears when I credited her with improving the musical talent God had given me. In the next 20 minutes of conversation, God reached out and wrapped His arms around the heart of this lonely lady with a connection she understood—music. Later in the parking lot, I gave her one of my albums and made sure she knew that she was a BIG part of the miracle God did in making it. We shared a parting hug and as she clung to me, I silently prayed for God to touch her life. God reminded me that I often go about my daily life and forget that His Spirit dwells in me. When I’m tuned in, He speaks through me! God’s Word says: “Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?” (1 Corinthians 3:16) If He’s in us, He’s not going to be silent. When we allow God’s Spirit to be the loudest voice we hear, then what we say is a reflection of Him. We must stop rushing around controlled by the roar of life and listen for God’s voice so the music He’s placed inside us becomes a song that blesses others.
