Bible Reading: Habakkuk 3: 17-19, Psalm 34:1

Memory Verse: Yet I will [choose to] rejoice in the LORD; I will [choose to] shout in exultation in the [victorious] God of my salvation!  Habakkuk 3:18 (AMP)

Voice of Martyrs (VOM) reports: Drunken Russian guards entered the cold cell one harsh winter afternoon. One prisoner, Nicolaie Moldovae, was a poet and composer as well as a devout believer and leader of an evangelical movement in the Orthodox church. He received a five year sentence in the brutal Russian prison for his ministry work. “Lie on your belly!” a guard yelled to Nicolaie. In his thin shirt and shorts, he laid on the freezing floor. The guards then stepped on his back, legs, and feet with their heavy boots for an hour. When the guards left, fellow prisoners knelt beside Nicolaie to see how badly he was hurt. To their amazement, Nicolaie said, “I have written a new hymn while I was being walked upon.” He began to sing, “May I not only speak about future heavens, but let me have heaven and a holy feast here.” After this, Nicolaie composed another hymn. “I worship you with gratitude for all you ever gave me, but also for everything beloved you took from me. You do all things well, and I will trust in you.” Today, Nicolaie Moldovae’s songs are celebrated throughout his nation.

How has Year 2022 been for you? Either ways, God is always faithful. It has been said that life is ten percent what happens and ninety percent how one responds to it. In that light, the actual circumstances of life do not matter as much as a person’s attitude toward them. Some circumstances are beyond anyone’s control but your attitude or response is a personal choice. Year 2022 might have brought you a disharmonious jumble of notes and melodies in a minor key. With God’s help, however, you can choose to arrange the notes to produce a song of worship and victory. We can choose to hear melody in the madness of our lives. All things work together for good to them that love God and to them who are called according to His purpose. Get a pen. Think deep. Write down those seemingly “little things” God has done for you this year then, you will see that God is forever faithful.

Quote:  You can choose to hear heavenly melodies amidst any situation surrounding your life
