Soundtrack: Your life is as vivid as a Stephen Spielberg film

Your life is as vivid as a Stephen Spielberg film. It’s high drama. It’s comedy. It’s tragedy. It’s better than any Academy Award winning film. Unless you are of a privileged few, Hollywood won’t be inviting you to any red carpet events. Your film is a fairly private showing. But, you’ve got a great screenwriter . . . you. Hopefully, God gets to direct it. Up to you.

Mine has a great soundtrack, too. Bet yours does, as well.

There are very few moments in my day that music isn’t underscoring my daily acts. In the car . . . at the office . . . in worship. Everywhere.

Each scene has a specific music. Jazz is for relaxation. Choral music is for inspiration. Worship songs help me connect to my emotions. Rock helps me workout. There are even moments when John Williams scores my day — Imperial March when I have to be tough (insert Darth Vader sound here.) When worship planning, I put on the music I’ll be leading for worship.

Right now, it’s jazz. Need to relax.
