That’s just how life goes.
Yesterday morning I was definitely in one of those moods and my friend Sam suggested that I go back to my room and play my guitar, which is exactly what I ended up doing for about an hour and a half. Technically, I shouldn’t have been playing my guitar before 10am, since it's during quiet hours, but I couldn’t help myself and I figured most people were probably in class anyway.
I took me a few minutes to tune my seldom-used guitar and find the chords for songs online but, once I did, I didn’t stop playing until I had to go to Human Biology. I ended up playing In Your Presence by Jeremy Camp over numerous times, amongst other worship songs.
I love it when chord progressions become addicting.
Sitting down to play my guitar and worship the Lord on my own was the best decision I made all day. Music is powerful worship, and also extremely beneficial during prayer. I find that it is often easier for me to sing my prayers into lyrics than it is for me to journal or pray them silently.
I like to verbally set it on the table and say, God, here’s what’s up…
Then I let my heart cry through the music.
