As a 9 year old girl, I began taking piano lessons. I loved the piano and used to spend hours practicing…..so much so that my brothers used to beg me not to practice. Later on as a teen I would play for revivals in small churches or for weddings, was full-time pianist in a small country church, and played for a girls trio in college. Then as an adult I got the opportunity to be one of several pianists in a medium sized church.
Music has always been a way for me to not only express the deepest parts of my heart in worship, but a way that God speaks directly to me. After my husband died, I could not listen to any music at all for over a year. Bob, who did not love music like I did, had in the last few months of his life suddenly begun to burst into song while sitting in the hospital bed at home or in the hospital. It didn’t matter who was around nor that he couldn’t sing well. The only two songs that he would sing were GOD IS SO GOOD and HOW GREAT THOU ART. I couldn’t join him in song because I could not get those words to come out of my mouth.
This song by Point of Grace says it all about what I struggled with for so long and finally realized that the reasons are not to be known to me here on earth. Frankly, I won’t need to know the reasons once I get to heaven.
