Playing…for Real!

Colossians 3:23 “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the LORD, not for human masters…

Playing…for Real!

Before an organ sat a reverent woman pausing…in the Real church no less than CHRIST ordained.
Though the sermon and its speaker were about share HIS WORD, still she felt the SPIRIT moving…deep within her.

With the flow of Heaven’s praises yet unhindered, so her fingers by HIS power played in tandem.
Now not touching any key but gracing ivories nonetheless…
thus with Rhapsody her thoughts combined…enraptured.

Harmonized with perfect timing through each measure, now surrounded by the clouds of
Glory’s choir…
so this dream o’erwhelmed her sight and other senses…till the light began, with Music, growing quiet.

Within accompaniments of slowed, unsudden changes, she drifted onwards in a wakeful state — attentive.
Touched by glimpses of eternal life celestial…so she moved, entwined with Faith, to race
with Time.

Then Bliss, in Timelessness, changed places with her! Now it addressed the glowing keys with glorious zeal!
Thus this woman sat transformed who had performed with earthly passion but now before HIS throne she played…for Real!

As HIServant in playing this drum for CHRIST alone,


Devotional: Colossians 3:24 “since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the LORD as a reward. It is the LORD CHRIST you are serving.”

Although I could fill a lot of pages with the wondrous touches of HIS presence, I’m not sure there’s a lot of deep revelation to share.

It’s both unspeakably incomparable and eternally matchless when we are playing, performing and doing for others versus…when we do so for CHRIST alone.

My prayer is that this experience has been yours already at some point. If not, I offer there is one place you can, without worrying about talent or level of performance.

People traditionally still choose consecutive expression but if you will seek HIS face and approval ONLY, you shall enter into HIS presence with fullness of Joy.

Psalms 16:11 “YOU make known to me the path of life; YOU will fill
me with joy in YOUR presence, with eternal pleasures at YOUR right hand!

Long with me, then, to serve relentlessly and be overwhelmed in HIS presence!

Amen and amen!
