God is The DJ

The other day a voice in the telly said "God is the DJ". He was advertising something this person and is likely one of those who are rather careless about taking the Lord's name. To begin with I was rather offended, but on reflection I realised that the person was right although not quite in the way he had said it.

God is truly a DJ. His musical arrangement is in the voices of the birds as they sing the morning chorus waking up the world, in the sound of the wind as it rushes in the trees, making the leaves dance. He choregraphs the voices of the insects in the evening as they sing the end of the day, singing His praises and thanking Him for His bounty as they prepare to rest.

God is the DJ. He conducts the rain, and the thunder and the lightening. His spinning technique is unsurpassed in the rushing of water, the crashing of the waves and the thunder of waterfalls.

God's DJ skills are awesome in the laughter ofwomen, in giggles of girls, in chuckles of boys and the gaffaws of men. But most of all is His skills are beyond compare when one hears the laughter of children.

Look for laughter not for tears. Look for joy not saddness. Celebrate in the music that God, the ultimate DJ creates for us to hear.

Now Mshairi, put this in prose form

Uaridi - you dont need me here. Your words and the sentiment behind them are just perfect! This is lovely and makes lots of sense especially on a day like today. Thank you

Hey Rose

I had never thought of it this way. I'm imagine myself requesting a ka-song I can't dance to and the DJ suggesting a song better suited to my moves. Patience with the Lord is key. He knows best!!

Great post..

What do we make of the other half of things: disease, violence, misery and suffering in its astounding variety and depth?

I only ask this to be thought-provoking. I have the same feelings that you've expressed in your post...

Milo: sometimes I just want to dance for joy - it is because of the Great DJ's music. He will provide you with a song.

Nakeel: Asante sana.

Nephew: Ta - for the compliment

Paul: Even as I wrote the blog I was working to overcome sickness, depression and abject lack of £££, these should not stop one from hearing the music of His love. Thank you for the thoughts.

This is so on point, thank you!
As Mshairi said, you just put it in your words, and poetic they are. You have all, you have IT dear Rose!

Even in the quiet, even in the storm, even in darkness, and in lightning, in laughter and in tears, in life and in death - he is choreographing and we can all hear His tune.

As Milo said, sometimes his choice in music isnt to our taste, but its his nonetheless and he is calling the tune, so to speak. And who are we not to dance, eh?

Very well said & poetic in it's own style. I need to hear more of this even as wait to hear my request from the Dj of all Djs:)
Ditto everyone here, we also wonder at times how to dance to that unfamiliar, unrequested tune but God the choreographer never fails/hesitates to teach us enough moves to make a star of us:))

Yes, trully Uaridi God is the most true, real and all time DJ. He comes thru for us always. We don't need no contract to get Him to come to our show, He is there before we even ask.And oh we need pay nada.

Great post Ua ridi, lovely work!

God is a great DJ isnt SHE?
SHE knows all our favourite songs and knows just what we want to hear and when.
Furthermore SHE can play everyones song at the same time.

I agree with you- awesome!
