Are You Feeling Disconnected?
Heartbeats and Fingerprints with Micah Tyler
“At the end of the day, we are all heartbeats and fingerprints trying to find purpose in this world,” Micah Tyler, contemporary Christian music artist shared in a conversation with Family Life Radio.
“I know the short shortcomings that I have,” Micah notes. “I know the mistakes that I’ve made. I know the deep times where I asked God for forgiveness.”
You are a heartbeat, a unique rhythm in the symphony of life, pulsing with purpose and meaning. You are a fingerprint, an intricate design, distinct and unrepeatable.
Your heartbeat connects you to every other person on this planet. It’s a rhythm you share with others, a sign of your common humanity. God created mankind in His own image, a reminder that we are all connected through Him (Genesis 1:27 ESV).
Micah says, “If God loves me, then He can love anybody.” Like Micah, you might recognize your own shortcomings and the mistakes you’ve made. But don’t let that discourage you. Instead, allow it to deepen your connection with others.
Your fingerprint symbolizes your unique purpose and calling.
Just as no two fingerprints are alike, no two people are called to the same purpose. You have something special to offer, a role that only you can fulfill.
Micah’s mission is to be a “city on the hill,” to lift Jesus in his life and music. What’s your calling? What gifts and passions has God placed in your heart? Explore them, embrace them and use them to glorify God.
You are crafted by God’s hand, and He has prepared a path for you. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Ephesians, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them” (Ephesians 2:10 ESV).
Micah’s words challenge us to love others without judgment. He spoke with heartfelt compassion for those who are walking through hard times, saying, “And my heart just keeps going out to those who are walking through hard times. They’re ashamed because of things they’ve done or things that have been done to them. I just want to always try to be that city on the hill.”
You too can shine a light in the darkness, reaching out to those in need without judgment or condemnation. Focus on your relationship with the Father, allowing His love and grace to guide your interactions with others. Jesus cautioned against judgment, teaching, “Judge not, that you be not judged,” and instead to love others as you love yourself (Matthew 7:1, 22:39 ESV).
You’re part of a beautiful community of heartbeats and fingerprints.
Micah continues, “My job is not to lift myself up. I’m going to talk to people, but if I can just lift Jesus up though it, and let them see Him in my life, that’s what I want to do …. On a stage I’m saying, let me do something so that you can bring people to you because that’s the only hope that we have.”
Reach out to those around you, recognizing their heartbeat and fingerprint, their pain and their purpose. The Psalmist said, “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” (Psalm 34:18 ESV).
Your journey is uniquely yours, a path laid out by God and guided by His love. Remember, we’re all in this together, each trying to find our purpose in this beautiful world.
