Well, I always knew I had a heart for “the arts” but I never knew how deep that interest was until the past three months. Moving to the United States at a young age and having lo learn a foreign language was definitely the start of something beautiful. I basically fell “head over heels” with the English language. The fact that English is one of the hardest languages to learn only deepened my passion. So obviously I adapted the habit of journaling. At first I would just write out my thoughts on current situations, then that evolved into my perspective on life, and now it’s transitioned into lyrics.
“That’s right dear one, lyrics”.
How did I get started? I actually cannot pinpoint the exact day, I just know it has been something special that has been developing in me over the last year. I have always had an appreciation for music. Lyrics tend to just come over me, and I have this ability to connect with songs in such a special way that I am just transported to a special place. (At least that is the only way I know how to convey my connection with music). Still I had no idea I had a song brewing inside of me until very recently.
I was on my lunch break sitting at the park just journaling my thoughts with God when suddenly this beat started up in my mind. From there the beat quickly turned into muffled sounds, and then that turned into words on a page. I recorded some of it so that I could revisit it later. And then it happened again. This time I was in my living room just sitting in silence after reading my Bible, and then before I could realize what I was doing I was singing my very own worship song to the LORD!! This morning the same thing happened…
It seems I have the beginning of three different songs. I am looking forward to revisiting the one I recorded once I purchase a keyboard and hopefully start some lessons. I am very excited to see what the LORD’s plans are for this new find. What’s interesting is that it wasn’t until a good friend of mine mentioned to me the idea of composing that I actually considered on developing this new gift. So thank you God for placing that thought in his mind and leading him to mindlessly mention this idea to me.
For now I am exploring these inner songs I hold in my soul and enjoying every minute of the experience. So there it is my new hobby: composing worship songs to the LORD.
“Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! Sing to the LORD, all the earth. “(Psalms 96:1 NKJV)
Have a blessed week!
