Music: A Gift from God

As the guests filed into the Rawson Chapel, they were escorted to their seats by well-dressed ushers, and they sat eagerly awaiting the latest recital. This recital, like many, is a requirement for music majors, and they are always a blessing to attend. Nathania Munoz’s violin recital on March 29th was no exception. Dressed in a gorgeous ivory gown, Nathania played her selections with incredible talent and an obvious overwhelming passion for music. My personal favorite was the performance of "Winter," from The Four Seasons, and hearing this piece played in person by a true musician was unbelievably amazing.

Do you ever have one of those moments when you hear something so beautiful that you get goose bumps? As I sat listening to Nathania’s performance with goosebumps covering my arms,  I could not help but think of the goodness of God to give people such extraordinary talents that could be used for His glory.

The strains of Vivaldi and Beethoven filled Rawson Chapel that night with the sound of hard work and the spirit of a beautiful girl using her musical talents to honor God. Hearing such talent is just another wonderful aspect of going to Pensacola Christian College. To all those music majors, keep up the amazing work. To Nathania, your recital was incredible, and congratulations on a job well done. To fellow students, check out a recital or two; your appreciation for the finer things in life will grow. And to prospective students, even if you are not interested in pursuing music, be certain of this: Christ is honored with all the music at PCC.

With one hand to her heart, and the one finger pointing to the sky, Nathania showed her thankfulness to those that came and showed their support and also gave all the glory to God at the same time. This spirit of my fellow students, regardless of major, is one of the main reasons why I love attending PCC.

"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord." (Colossians 3:16)
