I’ve always had a song. From the time I can remember it’s been inside me. Singing and playing and music have been in my heart, my soul, my mind since I was a child. I remember playing the piano for hours on end trying to sound like the grownups I heard every Sunday at church. I remember wanting to sing every time I had the chance. I wasn’t afraid. I knew I was born to sing and play.
Then the song kinda faded out. The passion died. The drive gone. I just didn’t have it in me any more. I felt out of place, insecure, a square peg trying to fit into a round hole. This wasn’t my “song” any more. Instead, it became something I wasn’t familiar with. So, I tried as long as I could, but after a while, I just stopped.
And that was a year ago – almost. The song just sat there in the corner of my heart, quietly waiting until I was ready to let it play again. But my heart was still frightened and unsure – even though I know He said it was okay. Did I really believe that I had something to offer? Something to give?
The only sure way to know was to just let the song go. So, I will. I will play. I will sing.
Because I have a Song.
