Why doesn’t my baby sleep? Too much milk; not enough? Too much activity; not enough? What about the atmosphere? Could it even be spiritual? Hmmm?
We are not told much in the Bible about the young life of David. However, two things we do know is this: he was a worshiper, a man after God’s own heart (his very name means “beloved”) and he was a skilled musician. Two things I would love people to say about me.
As a musician and a worshiper myself, one of my FAVORITE stories in the Bible is about David. Apparently, King Saul was having trouble sleeping (you can read the fascinating details for yourself in I Samuel 16) — until the young David was brought in and simply played his music. No words; just music.
“Whenever the spirit from God came on Saul, David would take up his lyre and play. Then relief would come to Saul; he would feel better and the evil spirit would leave him.” I Samuel 16:23
LET ME SHARE MY HEART: I obviously do not understand the details of this story, but I do know the power of music. I don’t understand why babies don’t sleep, but, again, I do know the power of music. (more…)
