A story has been told of a slender brown reed that grew in the forest. It was always sad because it could not make music like the brook, the birds or the wind. Then one day something happened. A young boy cut the reed and fashioned it to his liking. When he breathed through it, beautiful music floated over the forest. So often, like the reed, we are unable, on our own, to make beautiful music. But when we invite Jesus into our lives, He sets us free from the bondage of bad habits and gives us a new song. He sees our true worth. He forgives our sins and gives us a new life. Songwriter and musician Bill Gaither describes the transformation as follows. “Something beautiful, something good, all my confusion He understood. All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife, but He made something beautiful of my life… “ And that can happen to every single on of us.
