“Strength for the Weary” – Solo Piano Improvisation, Background Music for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, Intercession, Mindfulness, Studying, and Rest
Today’s interlude is called “Strength for the Weary”. It’s a gentle improvisation in the key of G Major. This morning I chose to only use the grand piano for the recording. I love having the extra pads and synths from time to time but love the space that is created when the only thing is the resonance of those piano strings.
I must be honest. I’ve struggled with recording these past few months. You could say I’ve grown weary of the commitment of doing this podcast. I ask myself, “has it served it’s purpose”? I sense that maybe the grace to continue has lifted. Then, I discipline myself, sit down, and play. I’ve never really regretted taking the time to do this.
I recognize that the war within me – that battle that grinds me down and makes me weary – it’s the same war we are all fighting. There is a battle that pulls us in every possible direction except that of stillness, solitude, peace, and quiet. Scripture refers to us having to “labor to enter God’s rest”. (Hebrews 4:11)
I hope that you will find strength in your weariness, and rest in your soul.
Thank you for listening.
