An Instrument of Your Love

O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.” Psalm 51:15

I came across this journal entry the other day that I had written back in January of this year and decided to post it for today. My I hope is that it blesses you, and glorifies our Heavenly Father.


My life is a song, and you Heavenly Father are the Composer. I am your instrument, and You are the Musician. I would not be able to make music in Your orchestra apart from You. I would not know the right notes to play or the right time to play them. May I be ever so faithful in yeilding myself to your direction, so that no one will ever doubt that the music of my life reveals the melody of your love. I will forever continue to lift my voice to proclaim your faithfulness, to exalt your Holy Name, and rejoice in your coming Kingdom. 🎼🎶

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Ephesians 5:19

Let the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart, be acceptable OH LORD, my strength and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

“I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.” Psalm 109:30

Let them praise his name in the dance: let them sing praises unto him with the timbrel and harp. For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds. Psalm 149:3-5

Neither yield ye your members [as] instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members [as] instruments of righteousness unto God. Romans 6:13

While I was writing it down on my site, I thought I would do a topic search at the same time of ‘an instrument of God’. (I’m a perpetual multitasker 🤔). Of course there were plenty of scripture links that came up, but one link popped out at me. It was a link to that very topic, so clicking on it, I noticed it was a blog by Sharla Fritz, written 5 and a half years ago. So with a thankful heart to Sharla Fritz, an amazing author and speaker, who had given me her permission, I am including an excerpt from her site from September 8, 2015 blog, titled ‘You Are God’s Chosen Instrument: 3 Ways to Make Music in His Hands’....

I believe we are each God’s chosen instrument. The Father lovingly chooses each of us to play for His glory. He works through each of us in various concert venues around the world. He produces beautiful music in those who yield to His gentle touch.

Heavenly Father, I ask that you protect and guide all who come and visit here, and lead them on the path of Your choosing. I pray that they may become a precious instrument of blessings and praises in Your hands, that their lives will reveal the melody of your love to those they encounter along their way….  In Jesus name I pray, thank You Father, Amen.
