I was listening to music from the 60’s and heard a song that I use to play all the time. It had harmonies that I still like. It also reminded me when I was in high school.
We look around in this world to find harmonies. Things that go together perfectly, a beautiful sunset with all the colors of the clouds or a babbling brook set in green mountains. With the chaos of our lives, harmony brings peace to our soul. We hear the sounds of children playing in the park and see them running around. There is harmony there. Or we see the bliss of young love or of old love as an older couple walking side by side holding hands. There are many ways to find harmony in our lives. But it seems that the harmony does not last. It is a temporary thing that comes and goes. Until I was 28 years old, I looked for this harmony or peace in my life. I looked everywhere and almost became an alcoholic because of it.
Some friends introduced me to a harmony or peace that I thought I would never have. When I found that peace, I knew that I had found what I was looking for. It is funny how that works. When you find something real, you know it. The only harmony that was lasting was centered around one person and that of Jesus Christ. He said, Peace or harmony I give you, not as the world gives. When I accepted the gift that Jesus offered me, I accepted peace in my life. I found a peace or harmony that passes all understanding.
Below is a link to the song I was listening to. Enjoy the music. It is a blast from the past.
