Have you ever found yourself in the midst of a storm? You want to run and find shelter. Protection is your biggest objective. I loved this beautiful picture and I can imagine running into this barn for protection.
My piano interludes are meant to provide a musical background for prayer, meditation, reflection, and yes … even simple relaxation or entertainment. For me, coming from the Christian faith, I know that in my storms I have to run to my Protector, Jesus Christ. Sometimes He calms the storm and sometimes the storm rages and you find yourself waiting … and waiting … and waiting.
As one of my favorite songs says, “He’s in the waiting“. I hope that as you listen to this interlude today that you will find a sense of peace in the waiting and in the midst of the storms.
TRUST. What an amazing thing. It’s a decision you have to make and it can’t be made for us.
It’s not often that my “worship interludes” include an actual song. Typically, they are spontaneous improvisations. This morning as I sat down in the studio I prayed “what should I pray about and play this morning” and this immediately came to me.
‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
and to take him at his word;
just to rest upon his promise,
and to know, “Thus saith the Lord.”
Jesus, Jesus, how I trust him!
How I’ve proved him o’er and o’er!
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
O for grace to trust him more!
