Paganini, the great violinist, came out in front of his audience ready to perform, only to find that his most treasured and priceless violin had been stolen and replaced by a secondhand version. Momentarily paralyzed, feeling he would not be able to perform and subsequently would embarrass, shame, and disappoint all who were waiting to hear him play, he paused and then addressed the audience saying: “Ladies and Gentlemen, I will show you that the music is not in the instrument but in the soul!” He then played as he had never before, bringing such authentic, inspired, rapturous music to the audience that the applause almost lifted the ceiling from its very foundations. The man had revealed that the music was not in the machine, but in his very soul.
It is your destiny and your calling to walk your life out onto the stage of your world. To reveal to all of heaven and earth and everyone in them that your music is not bound by your conditions, your trials, your mistakes nor whatever internal or external forces may come against you; the music of your life is in your very own soul (Adapted/inspired by “Streams in the Desert, September 28th).
Dear child (from God),
Your earthly machine may seem worn and secondhand (that being your human composition now on earth), but your soul is infused with the spirit of the living God which will enable you to produce beautiful and rapturous music never heard before and only able to be performed by you. Let me play you and reveal to the world the glorious music of your soul.
