Oh, how I love God’s Word and His sweet presence. It changes everything. Especially on days when the pressure seems insurmountable, just a few moments in His presence can turn everything around.
I will see Your goodness IN MY LIFETIME.
Last night, I remembered again how much I adore my Father and the people He’s placed around me. Imagine for a moment… fireplace burning, low lighting, rustic décor, hot coffee, great acoustics, three gifted guitarists, and 40 worshippers singing their hearts out. It was heaven.

Tongue tied, mind blank, uninspired, burned out, writer’s block… Whatever you call it, it’s awful.
This has been a hectic week of busyness for me, the culmination of months of musical instruction and training. My voice and piano students have their formal exams in less than forty-eight hours, and the pressure is ON. I know, I know, the pressure is theirs to bear, not mine. But a teacher always carries the silent burden of
“Have I done enough? Do they really understand? Are they ready?”
Add to that the last-minute pressures of final rehearsals, emotionally charged students with exam-day jitters, and it’s only natural to ask yourself, “Have I forgotten anything?”
It’s no wonder I have writer’s block.
To be honest, Walking in Unforced Rhythms is proving to be both a mystery and a challenge to me. I wish I could say that I’m a master at this, but I’m really not. It’s more like I’m enrolled in ‘Unforced Rhythm School’ and wading through performance reviews and mid-terms.
Father, help me.
And then, the strangest thing happened tonight. As I lay my head on my pillow, willing myself to slumber, inspiration finally struck!
