What a Thrill

I just finished teaching a 5 week S.H.A.P.E. class at church. It’s Rick Warren’s amazing curriculum to help folks understand how God has “shaped” each of us for His special purposes. We looked at our Spiritual gifts, Heartbeat or passion, Abilities, Personality type and Experiences to see how God has been grooming us for years for the tasks He has called us to! I loved watching the folks in my class light up as they learned more about who they are and how their skill sets can make a difference for eternity.

My husband, the musician, explained to me that if you have two stringed instruments in the same proximity, and you play an A-note on one, the A string on the other instrument will vibrate as well! He said that is known as “Thrill” or the thrill effect. I personally think it gives both God and us a “thrill” as we play the music our lives were designed to create by using our gifts for His kingdom. In fact, I don’t think there is any greater thrill in life than being used by the Lord to make a difference in someone else’s life!

What song has He empowered you to play?

Because loving kids comes so naturally to me, I tend to forget it's a gift. Thanks for reminding me that how God has made me, makes both of us smile.
