Worship Interludes: Sunrise [Episode 70, April 10, 2018]

A beautiful sunrise is hard to beat.   It signals the dawning of a new day, a new start.   I love how the Bible declares that God’s mercy is brand new for us each morning.  It’s like we start over with a fresh dose of it.   [Lamentations 3:23]

As the sun rises on your new day, take a moment to slow down and consider all the blessings you have.   Take time to be grateful.   Forgive those who have offended you and extend mercy to them as mercy is freely given to you.

Worship Interludes: A New Beginning [Episode 53, October 16, 2017]

There are two things that I appreciate and both have similar meanings:

  1. sunrises
  2. Monday mornings

Yes, you read that correct – Monday mornings.  Most people absolutely hate the thought of Monday morning.   But for me, much like the sunrise, it’s the signal of a new day, a new week, a new chance.

As I recorded this interlude this morning I took some time to journal, pray, and reflect on what I wanted a new week to look like.  I set some goals spiritually, physically, and practically.

As you start your new week, I hope you’ll take some time to consider these things and set some time to listen to this interlude and dream.

Have a great week!

Worship Interludes: Are You Weary? [Episode 43, July 18, 2017]

Are you weary?   I love this great photo courtesy of Pexels.Com.   This guy looks like he’s just about to give up.  He can’t take it anymore.  Just pull over, stop it all, and crash.

I’ll be honest.  July has been a very difficult month for me.  Where God is opening new doors, He is closing familiar ones.  Even today, in the past hour, I’ve been faced with frustrations and agonizing disappointments.   I hold my head high, but I’ll be honest, I’m weary.

Jesus spoke in Matthew 11:28, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest”.   (NIV)

There is a rest when we find peace.   So in the hectic pace of my routine and my day, after managing some chaos and disappointment in my business-life, what did I do?  I turned to the source of Peace.   For me, that is in my relationship with Jesus Christ.    I prayed and played this interlude.   I recognize that there are many who listen to this music who are not of the Christian faith.   I hope that this music will still impact you in a significant way as you face your own trials and disappointments.
