The marimba is one of my favorite instruments to hear played. The wooden bars have a nice tone but what makes the marimba sound amazing is the long metal tubes, called resonators, that hang below the wooden bars that are each a different length and amplify the sound vibrations making them richer, more mellow and beautiful.
Did you know that everything in the universe has a vibration? Everything! Even WE have a vibration and everything around us vibrates at a high or low frequency around us. Interestingly, the process of matching the natural frequency of a body to produce maximum effect is called “resonance.”
So, when we say, “that really resonated with me,” we’re saying that it hit our natural frequency. And, while most things would normally not affect us that deeply, that “something” found the sweet spot that moved us to maximum effect.
Imagine when the Holy Spirit whispers to ours, either through His still, small voice or a message or song…when both vibrations are dialed in and match up…that’s when we are moved to tears, or overwhelming joy, unexplainable peace and even courage that we didn’t know we had the capacity to walk in. When those frequencies resonate to the depth of our soul…that is right where God wants us to live.
1 Corinthians 2:10 (TPT) reveals, “But God now unveils these profound realities to us by the Spirit. Yes, he has revealed to us his inmost heart and deepest mysteries through the Holy Spirit, who constantly explores all things.”
That really resonates with me. I hope it resonates with you!
