“The problem is…there’s no tingle in your jingle….”

That’s MUSIC to my ears. I’m sure you’ve heard that cliché before… There’s all forms of music to me; the traditional music, which I prefer… the hard-rock, long-hair, love ballads, and the dreaded elevator music, and of course….spirituals.

But the music I refer to here, is: that which is associated with “LIFE’S JOURNEY.” There are careers, success-rates, good health, good friends, good marriage, and a GODLY life….all part and parcel… of Life’s Journey. This is a “planned journey” designed… totally by God Himself… a separate plan… for each of us.

Jeremiah 29:11-12 – ‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ‘Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.…

That’s music to my ears. Where’s the music in all of that? If you don’t have these musical factors in your life…then there is no music – in your life. All is quite… all is sad… all is done. There is “no tingle in your jingle.”

God wants us to have this type of music in our lives; so how do we get it? We enjoy God by following His purpose for our lives, which enables us to experience true and lasting joy—the abundant life that He desires for us.

John 15:16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
