When God inspired me to write “The Song Inside“, He reminded me that when HE is my melody, my life produces a sweet harmony. God’s melody is written in His Word. When we are born again, we may join His song. Through obedience to His Word and communion with His Spirit, our life narrative is transformed! We become HIS sweet harmony. When we love Him with all our heart, soul, and mind—and love others the way we are loved by Him, we are so full that even the most tumultuous situation fails to rob us of our peace. The Bible says:
[YOU] have put on the new self [born again soul and spirit], which is being renewed in knowledge after the image of its Creator. Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all in all.
Put on…holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.
And above ALL these put on LOVE,, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
And let the peace of Christ RULE in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Colossians 3:10-17
When we are transformed by renewing our mind each day in God’s Word and His presence, God becomes the most essential part of our daily life. Even those who hat us can’t change us because we have a steadfast realization that their hate is not about us. Their real problem is with God—they need the gift of salvation. God’s love towards us humbles us to forgive and to be compassionate.
When we love God with all of our heart, we project a deep sense of peace, love, and joy which points others to our Savior.
When the presence of God resides within our soul, no force on earth can remove it. The closer we are to Him, the more we experience the unmistakable manifestation of His love, joy, wisdom, strength, and peace.
When God is King in our life, we are the harmony to His melody and the discordance notes are silenced by the majesty of His presence!

I sinned greatly against The Lord our God not long after I was baptized! its been about 19yrs ago! I’ve been trying to find my way back to God since 2019! I know God forgives, but I can’t seem to forgive myself and I feel so unworthy! I would love to hear any words of wisdom! Thank you in advance! 🙏🙏💯
Thank you for the words of encouragement this morning. love, jason.
