Take Time | Too Busy for Soul Care? [Episode 185, October 22, 2019]

“Take Time” – Piano Instrumental Music for Soul Care

Today’s interlude is a short breath of fresh air. I recorded this on a day when I had a million other things on my mind and what seems like a never-ending task list in my business life. The temptation to skip the interlude today and rush into my ever-growing task list was great. Yet, I’ve learned over the years that if I don’t stop and tend to my soul, things don’t go well. My effort to be productive is always counter productive when I ignore my devotional time.

Let’s be honest. Who isn’t super busy these days? Practically no one. We all have to remind ourselves that taking a moment to tend to our soul doesn’t have to take a long time. Even a brief 5-minute break in our day will yield positive results. As you listen to this interlude, consider just putting down your devices, disabling your notifications, and closing your eyes. Take slow, intentional, deep breaths. As the thoughts of all of your tasks and to-do list flood your mind, try to just let those thoughts pass through. If your mind is super active, replace the busy thoughts with thoughts of gratitude.

My guess? If you do what I suggested, after listening to this brief interlude you will feel more at peace. Rest. You’ll want to play it again. The thought of opening your eyes and returning to the chaos will not be so attractive.

The chaos awaits. We have things that have to be done. But ignoring our soul – spirit, mind, and body, is not an option.

Take time.

Grace and peace,
Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer
