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.
Today’s interlude is called “Peace, Be Still”. Hurricane Irma is a major hurricane that is ripping through the Caribbean and is threatening Florida, Georgia and the southern US. We are still a few days away from having the impact of this storm and her path is uncertain. Nevertheless, people here are already getting stressed, anxious, and worried. Mandatory evacuations have been ordered and it’s hard to not get caught up in the frenzy of hysteria and worry.
I recorded this today in hopes that people would take six minutes to take a deep breath, slow down, breathe, and just say “peace, be still”.
I continue to pray that this storm veers north and goes out to sea. In the meantime, we exercise caution and make plans and preparations. In the midst of the turmoil there is a peace that we can find and I hope this interlude helps you find it.
