Sometimes we just can’t deny the realities of our experience. We struggle with the weight of our trials. We pray and pray and hope GOD will take the burdens or that He will blow them away in a wind of grace. But often I find a different process is at work- one in which my Heavenly Father chooses not to stop the music- no matter how overbearing- but instead He changes my perception- you might say He remixes the music.

Will we let our Father's love remix our perceptions?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the BP oil spill -one among many other crisis in the world and in my personal life-  situations that are troubling or overwhelming or problems for which I have no real answers. For most of these issues -from the seemingly apocalyptic to the nagging and mundane- I have been deeply confounded- with more questions than answers.

But this evening I stumbled onto a video that somehow gave me a shot of hope and I sensed GOD’s silent whisper saying: “Don’t underestimate my power to redeem- even seemingly impossible situations. Let me remix the music- change your perception and infuse new hope by My Holy Spirit.”

The music may not change but our Father is a DJ who will teach us a new way to dance on all that threatens to crush our trust in His overwhelming goodness and infinite love.
