Song Receiver's Tip of the Week - April 23, 2012


I have already touched on this subject, but it bears repeating because it is one of the greatest tools in the palate of creativity God has given us. Practice by taking just one word (like love or grace or peace) from Scripture and meditating on it all day. As you go about your work, take little mental trips of exploration as to how that word applies to your work, your relationships, your view of the world, or your understanding of your own identity. As the Lord what this one word means to your life…and allow Him to carry it to the lowest common denominator (See, math is good for something!). Go to bed asking the Holy Spirit to take you on a journey, delving into the meaning of that word. Ask Him to show you how it applies to your life or to the lives of those around you. As you go to sleep, ask the Spirit to meet you there in your dreams and to take you deeper into the meaning or concepts God wants you to derive from this word. Where the rubber meets the road is when you then take what you hear and apply it to your life and to the creative process…

How blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the path of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers! But his delight is in the law of the LORD, And in His law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:1-2 NASB
