Tune My Heart

"Come thou Fount of every blessing Tune my heart to sing Thy grace"

This is the line of a very famous hymn. I'm sure you've heard it and probably sung it. Did you realize what you were singing?

We are the instrument, God is the musician. Our life is a constant song that our heart sings. Sometimes the music is straight from God full of His holiness and grace, but sometimes our heart gets out of tune, and the beautiful song is ruined by sour notes.

Maybe you've heard an untuned instrument, or a person who can't carry a melody in a bucket. That's what God hears when our hearts get all out of whack. That's when it's time for a tune up.

The lyrics of this hymn are a prayer to God, asking Him to tune our hearts. Think about it, have you ever tuned an instrument? Tuning usually means adjusting tensions in the strings by turning knobs and applying pressure. Not fun, definitely not fun.....but necessary.

God will adjust things in our lives to tune our heart so our life's song is exactly how He wants it. The melody, pitch and harmony are completely in balance, and the theme of our song is grace and the Grace Giver.

Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Ephesians 5:19 KJV
