Unending Love | Piano Solo [Episode 212, March 6, 2020]

“Unending Love” – Piano Improvisation by Fred McKinnon

This piece, “Unending Love” comes from my piano improvisation on the morning of Friday, March 6, 2020. It is featured as Episode #212 of the Worship Interludes Podcast which was created as a soundtrack for personal times of prayer, devotion, meditation, relaxation, and rest.

Love is such a powerful gift. I’m not thinking about the kind of love we may have emotionally or sexually with someone. That’s definitely part of love but I’m referring to selfless, never-ending love that chooses to serve, bless, and honor. Love is such a beautiful gift when it’s given with no expectation of return or benefit.

Truthfully, loving with that kind of love is extremely difficult. Yet, Christ has called us to love one another in this way.

One of the main reasons that I record these morning interludes is so that the listener can have a peaceful, calming soundtrack for their personal times of prayer and devotion. In this episode, consider meditating on how you can love others more completely and selflessly. Allow yourself to see your shortcomings and opportunities for growth in this area.

May we learn to love in the way that we are loved by our Heavenly Father.

Grace and peace,
Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer

Rest for the Soul | Piano Instrumental [Episode 211, March 3, 2010]

“Rest for the Soul” – Piano Instrumental Improvisation for Prayer, Meditation, Soaking Worship, Relaxation

I can’t really explain why, but I’ve been exhausted recently. It feels like no amount of sleep is enough and I’m tired throughout the day. Typically I would blame this on my diet and exercise but I’ve been very consistent in this area. My diet is better and more disciplined than it’s been in years as well as my commitment to exercise. I’ve actually lost 22 pounds since January.

Sometimes, our bodies simply need rest. Last night I went to bed at 8:50 PM. Everything in my mind kept telling me it was crazy to go to bed so early. Yet, I was tired and had been tired all day long. According to the sleep tracker on my trusty FitBit watch, I feel asleep very quickly. A friend of mine who usually exercises with us in the early morning hours didn’t show up this morning and he said the same thing – he was just exhausted and needed to rest.

Our bodies were not meant to be going full speed at all times. We need rest. Not just daily rest, but weekly rest. That’s why God created the sabbath. In today’s culture, sabbath may look very different than in the past. Yet, I believe with all of my heart that we should be intentional about rest.

Today’s interlude is simply called “Rest for the Soul” and it’s a relatively short interlude. The thing I love about the short interludes is your ability to pause for a few short minutes in a busy day and find a moment of peace and rest.

That is my desire for each and every one of you today.

May you find rest for your soul.

Grace and peace,
Fred McKinnon, Pianist/Composer
