When God Sings Through Your Life

Try to imagine God singing through your soul. God is expressing love, wisdom, beauty, and truth through your specific life.

What would God’s vocabulary be? What words frequently show up in your conversation, in your thoughts? Are they words with a distinctive accent? What region of the country or the world is evident in your words and the way you speak them?

What kinds of work does God work through, using your life? What do you do for a living? At what activities and skills do you excel? What do you do for fun? What are your hobbies? God will be expressing divine life through all of these things.

What personality traits will be at God’s disposal as God works through your life? What sets you apart from other people? What traits do others enjoy, and which of your characteristics can challenge people sometimes?

What do you really enjoy? What do you savor? How will God use these loves and pleasures?

What are your struggles? What are your big questions? God will use them all as raw material.

So, what’s it like when God sings through you, expresses wisdom through you, loves through you?


  1. Thanks Vinita, you have posed several pointed questions. The song, ‘Lord make me a channel of your peace’ came to my mind instantly. The song has all the right answers.

  2. I’m not sure that God sings through me as I am the least talented in singing. Maybe I don’t need to be talented though. Just receptive.
    My words have a distinctive accent. I feel closest to God when reading Scripture, the living Word and I read with an Australian accent. I need to keep in mind there are many voices doing the same work.

  3. Good morning,
    I’m planning to use this article in my eighth grade English classes as a opening exercise. I’m hoping for some critical thinking, and a spiritual moment. Thanks. I’ll let you know how it goes.

  4. Dear Vinita,
    Thank you so much .

    When my god sings through me it is My lord ,My God, how can this be ?

    It’s a huge surprise again and again …and i hope it will happen again.

    Did I miss out in my neighbours joy when God sang through me…was i preoccupied with my joy? Or did i notice and acknowledge when God sang through my neighbour.

    Isn’t there always more and more to dig deep .
