May 27 – Beethoven

It is said that in the later years of his life, Ludwig Loodvig) van Beethoven the great German composer and pianist spent hours playing a broken harpsichord. It was worthless, and out of tune. But Beethoven would play with tears running down his cheeks as though hearing something sublime. In fact, he was – for he was deaf. He heard the sound that the instrument should make, not what it did make. Do you sometimes feel like that harpsichord ? Out of tune? Broken? Then listen! Our Heavenly Father sees not only what we are now, but what we can become. A beautiful song says,” He is the Potter, I am the Clay, Molded in God’s Image, He wants me to Stay. When I Stumble and Fall, when My Vessel Breaks, He just Picks up those Pieces , He does not Throw the Clay Away. Paul explained how this happens. “If anyone is in Christ, He is a new creation. Old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.”
