It never occurred to me that other people didn’t wake up with music in their head. I thought that everybody heard songs in their head all the time, and it was just a matter of what song they were hearing. Now I’m not so sure. People ask me how I do it, whether I plan what I’m going to hear, if I can plant songs in my mind. No. Believe me, my husband has tried! His quirky sense of humor tries to plant weird, goofy, obscure music the night before to see if I wake up with it in my head.
Thankfully, God gets to pick the playlist, not my husband. Or me for that matter. Twice last night I woke with the same song in my mind during the night, but this morning it was completely different. Francesca Battistelli was (is) singing Write Your Story even as I write this post…
I’m an empty page
I’m an open book
Write Your story on my heart
Come on and make Your mark
Author of my hope
Maker of the stars
Let me be Your work of art
Won’t You write Your story on my heart
I love this song! It makes me want to turn it up and dance! It’s an awesome invitation from me to God to use me.
I have a new grandbaby coming this fall, and my daughter just sent me an ultrasound picture. Talk about a work of art!!! Perfect little head and fingers. A new life growing and waiting to meet the world, already with God’s stamp on it. An empty page for The Lord to write His story on the heart of that tiny child.
Maybe it’s not too late for me to make myself an open book so that God can make his mark… Or continue to do so. If I “become like little children” – open and available, ready and waiting to soak up anything that God wants to show me or teach me – God can continue writing His story on my heart and in my life. I am so grateful and thankful that He has chosen to write music on my heart!
