Never Give Up | Piano Instrumental [Episode 152, May 19, 2019]

“Never Give Up” – Encouraging the Hopeless, Weary, and Anxious Souls

Episode #152 of the Worship Interludes Podcast is called “Never Give Up”. As I recorded this piece, I was especially thinking about all of those people who just want to give up. You feel defeated and hopeless. You are weary, anxious, and can’t seem to find peace.

I’ve battled all of these emotions for over a year now. They are real. They are painful. Yet, I know deep in my heart that God is good, and He is the source of peace.

As you listen, my prayer is that God’s peace will flood your soul and that you will have eyes to see His goodness.

Stay the Course | Piano Instrumental Music [Episode 151, May 14, 2019]

“Stay the Course” – Solo Piano Instrumental Music for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, Relaxation, Studying, Focus

With every passing day we have to deal with the distractions of life. These distractions can easily pull us away from the purpose that we have in this life. A few minutes can turn into hours, which turns into days, which turns into weeks, months, and years. Before we know it, we’ve lost focus, we’ve lost purpose, and we’re off track.

I believe that every person on this planet has a God-given purpose. There is a destiny for each one of us. I also believe that we ultimately have to make a choice in whether or not we will carry out that purpose. Rest assured, there will be situations and opportunities that will detour us from that path.

In this piece “Stay the Course”, my hope is that you will take some time to quietly ponder the purpose for your life. Do you know what that is? Do you feel that you’ve lost your way? Spending a few minutes daily in prayer is a great way to rediscover that path. Listen for that small voice that whispers to you, “this is the way… walk in it”.

Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying,
“This is the way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right hand or whenever you turn to the left.

Isaiah 30:21, NKJV

Strength for the Soul | Piano Instrumental [Episode 150, May 8, 2019]

“Strength for the Soul” – Piano Instrumental Music Soundtrack for Prayer, Meditation, Relaxation, Studying, and Soaking

Today’s interlude was inspired by Psalm 119: 28. I was reading in my daily devotion and came across this passage which reads:

My soul melts from heaviness; Strengthen me according to Your word.

Psalm 119:28

I found this to be a beautiful passage that helps us deal with our souls. You’ve probably heard people say they are “soul sick”. So many things that people face are sicknesses of the soul, such as depression, anxiety, worry, rejection … and so many others.

There is no lack of hurt and pain in this world that we live in. It’s no doubt that from time to time, we need healing and strength in our souls. This passage reminds us that through the promises of God’s Word, we can receive that strength.

For me, a daily devotion that keeps me in God’s Word is life. It keeps this powerful force ever-present in my mind.

As I played today I was thinking of various things that weight on my own soul. I was thinking about you, and all of the things that the thousands of listeners of this podcast experience – things that make your soul sick.

I hope that the time you spend listening to this interlude will be refreshing.

With love and peace,
Fred McKinnon
