Song Receiver's Tip of the Week - September 12, 2011

Write Your Song’s History -

Every time I receive a song from the Lord, I write the history of the song – the story behind the song. Along with any Scriptural reference used to inspire I write down what I was experiencing that brought birth to this particular song. Why? When I share the song publicly and share the story people can more readily identify with the song if they know its circumstances. When I write the history, I leave my family and those I minister to a legacy of God’s grace. Like breadcrumbs along the journey, I leave an ongoing message of the faithfulness of God in my wake for future generations that says, “I’ve been through what you’re going through. You can do this!” Why receive a song that has no story to tell behind the song? That’s like seeing a beautiful cloud and being able to get to the beauty but, after getting there, finding no substance. Always record the story behind the song. You never know who is going to need to hear it – whether it be a story of pain and sorrow and suffering or a story of laughter and victory and joy. -

But as for me, the nearness of God is my good;

I have made the Lord GOD my refuge,

That I may tell of all Your works.

Psalm 73:28 NASB -

Your faithfulness continues throughout all generations;

You established the earth, and it stands.

Psalm 119:90 NASB
