Sound Theology by Colleen Butcher
I was reading about “Middle C” the other day. It seems that depending on who you ask, the sound of that “note” changes. Unlike God, we try to change everything, yet never really do. You see, when we “change things,” we are really only redefining what already is. We change our hairstyle, yet it’s still us… and in a few days, the hair grows back out, and the “new” is now old. We change where we live, but where ever we move to becomes “home.” We are always trying to change things. Change in itself is not bad. It is really good when God changes things. In reality, He is not changing anything except our hearts. What he is really doing is re-signing our understanding of things as we see them and showing us how He wants us to see them. See, He never changes. No matter how we try to define things, we are just deciding how middle c sounds. What we should be doing is just playing a note and let whatever tone comes out praise Him.
Some videos for you to contemplate:

There are many times in life that seem futile. It seems that we are at a loss for what to do, or even the strength to do it. To be honest, I am there now. But the one thing I cling on to, the one thing I know for certain is that He has me. One of my favorite songs is “Blessed Assurance”. The line “Blessed Assurance, Jesus is mine” sticks in my head like a bad earworm. Thing is, sometimes, especially in hard times, we need to understand that we are Jesus’s too. He took the responsibility of “us” when he created us. “Blessed assurance, we are His”.

All of Creation praise the LORD. Listen to creation sing. Look around and you can see God’s paintbrush working in a live 3D canvas.

Without water, there is no life. Maybe this is why Jesus uses water as a metaphor so many times. If we do not drink enough water, we will not be healthy. God is the source of the water we drink and the water that nourishes the soul.
