Today I want to share a video of a song from the past. I met Khris Khristopherson briefly as his sister was married to a West Point friend of my husband. The story of how this song was written and the song itself have so much meaning for me.
Lord Jesus, help us to each share our story to encourage others to come to you. AMEN
O Lord, hear my prayer..………Taize Music
Today while writing for my blog worrylessjourney.com I was reminded how much I love the music of the Taize community in France. Their meditative songs help me to focus. The Quakers have a term “center down” and these songs help us to do that. Music can bring us close to God.
Listen to this sung prayer and reach out to God. AMEN
“There is nothing in the world so much like prayer as music is.” —William P. Merrill
To me, music is not like prayer, it is prayer. I can sit in the church and listen to the music and be pulled out of myself. Attending a service where everyone sings out can touch my soul. I can be move to tears by a beautiful hymn. I thank God that he has gifted us with music.
Thank you god, for the beautiful music. May we continue to be touched by it and drawn closer to you. AMEN
Here I am, Lord. Is it I Lord? I have heard you calling in the night. I will go Lord. If you need me. I will hold your people in my heart. Dan Schutte
I love this hymn. It is one of my favorites and always speaks to me. When I sing the words I can feel God calling me to do his will. Do you have a hymn or song that pulls you into the presence of God? If you do sing it often. Let the words open your heart to answer God’s call. He is calling you and me. Will we answer?
God you call us in many different ways. Help us to heed your voice and follow. AMEN
