Worship Interludes: Carry [with Russ Hutto, Guest Artist]

Today’s Worship Interlude is provided by Russ Hutto, a guest artist for the Worship Interludes podcast.

From Russ:

Today as I sat down to play I was reminded of an old worship chorus that I wore out when I was just a young worship leader learning to play chords and sing at the same time. It was a simple chorus that I could almost play on auto-pilot while worshiping.

Although this is not directly an arrangement of that song, as I sat and played, I felt that neat rush of enjoyment that I remember as a young man when learning to use music to worship my God. It was as if the Lord took me away, back to one of those “first love” times in my youth.

My prayer is that this simple chord progression, with a little piano freestyle will bless you as the Lord desires to carry you into the fullness of His love.

Russ Hutto is a worship leader who wears several other hats: author, social media marketer, and graphic designer.

Worship Interludes: Winding Down [March 1, 2017]

Today’s interlude comes in the afternoon.  Typically, I record these in the morning hours.   Today, as I was planning to leave the office – with more things “undone” than “done” and struggling on the best way to spend the next 30 minutes I had to work … I decided to just wind down instead.

There’s always work to be done.   As I typed out that last sentence, I was reminded of this story from the Bible in Luke 10:

40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
