A Daughter's Song

This morning I got up at around 4. I was so sleepy it was so hard for me to pull myself out of bed. But I had to do it! No, not I had to but I really wanted to be out of bed by that time. I started praying because I wanted to be on time in meeting God as He asked me to do.

Few days ago my eyes was deep with dark circles. I couldn't sleep for many days and I tried to understand why I couldn't put myself to sleep early at night. I told my demise to one of my friends and she told me that perhaps the Lord was calling me to be intimate with Him once again. I must learn to meet God in His time and not mine; His agenda and not mine. God must be calling me to come away with Him at the wings of the dawn before the sun rises.

That's the reason why I didn't want to be late with my appointment with the Lord. This morning, I had difficulty getting into prayer because I was still very sleepy and my eyes were half closed. I prayed and then I wondered.

What does god want to tell me? What does he want me to do?

I also read the Bible but I was only reading without any revelation. There was no "feeling". Then I grabbed my MP3 to "help" bring myself into His presence.

Suddenly, I was reminded of a story of one of my pastors. He told one of the worship leaders that she has an amazing voice. He commended her in front of the congregation telling them that she has the voice of a diva. Then he continued by telling everyone that his daughter also loves to sing. Her voice is nothing compared to that of the worship leader. In fact, his daughter is a lousy singer. But when she sings, he thinks it is the most beautiful voice in all the earth. He will never trade his daughter's songs for that of any other. It's the voice he loves to listen to again and again.

That was my revelation! My Heavenly Father wants to listen to His daughter's voice. God wants me to sing a special song to Him! I already accepted the fact that I am not gifted musically. When I sing, people think that I am reciting or reading a poem. I can't even differentiate among tunes. But my Daddy in Heaven is always so excited to hear me sing. When I start to open my mouth, He will command His angels to hush so He can give all His attention to His daughter. He wants to listen to me sing and and again. How could I turn that down?

Oh, what a privilege for me to sing to my Lord! So, I sang one song very quietly because my roommate was still sleeping soundly.

That is all God wanted me to do that day. He just wanted me to sing from my heart to Him.

Then I went back to bed and slept with satisfaction knowing that I have fulfilled what He had called to do that day. God's time. God's agenda.

Oh, how I love Jesus because He first loved me.
