On a gloomy wednesday night all by yourself, listening to Coldplay totally sets the mood. :) Their songs keep me company as I'm here, stuck, cooped up in my little square room, missing home-cooked food and a little of my own PJ world + friends.
How can such a group be so talented in music? Or how can one have the gift in music, to be pitch-perfect, to be able to identify the music notes played in an intricate jazz chord by just hearing? A philosophical question indeed. But no matter how hard philosophers try to think and come up with a brilliant comeback, the answer is simple: God's gift.
It is He who gave you the gift to play by ear, to capture out-of-this-world chords and play it in your own interpretation, to be able to identify who sings in pitch and who doesn't, to sing harmony on the spot, to be pitch-perfect, to spurn silly beats and one-off/syncopated timings on musical instruments...isn't that just an amazing gift?? I think it is.
But are you serving with the right heart? Is pride getting in the way? Are you imparting your musicality to the younger ones to help them grow like how you did?
Your gift and talent does not revolve around you and your world. Its main focus, is to serve God. :)
p.s. i was reminded of this today :) thought of sharing it here lah.
p.s.s. I am in love with Coldplay because they're so good good good!!!
