The Psalmist David wrote:
"I seek You with all my heart; do not let me stray
from your commands. I have hidden your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You." Psalms
About 9 years
ago while in a mid-week Bible Study, my Pastor, at that time, was teaching and had asked those assembled to
recite a Bible verse he had assigned the week prior. Well, it appeared that about 98% of the brothers and sisters
there had not meditated on the verse during the past week. Nevertheless, the LORD used that moment to plant
the scripture-to-song notion in my heart. I sat there pondering the fact that Music is a wonderful creative tool our
God has given us to be used for His glory, and generally speaking, everyone loves it. So even when we're busy
with life's day-to-day responsibilities, it would be easy, and effortless, for anyone to memorize scripture,
I thought...if we put it to a melody.
So here we have it... Melodies with the Word.
Old and New Testament Fear of the LORD scriptures, repetitively put to twenty-three God-given melodies, some with instrumental
tracks, several without, sum up the Melodies With the Word: "Why the Fear of the LORD?" music CD. With
adagio (slow), to allegro (upbeat) traditional and contemporary tracks, the diverse styles of these 23 songs were designed
to not only glorify God, but to assist each listener with hiding these scriptures in their hearts.
