“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” (Psalm 118)
Sometimes I feel like I am at the center of a very busy world. Between work, school, trying to keep up with family, maybe have some time for friends, and trying to clean the house or do my laundry once in a while, I am constantly spinning and relying on my own strength to just get it done.
While I am running around like a chicken with its head cut off, I often forget that while I am the center of this crazy corner of the world, I am NOT the center of the universe.
And what peace there is in that statement. When I actually stop to think about that fact, I am stunned to the point of silence. The weight of the world does not need to be on my shoulders. The weight of my own hectic little world doesn’t even need to be on my shoulders. I can let the God of the Universe take care of it and I can just seek solace in Him.
Today’s song was for sure a moment of surrender for me. When Megan first told me that I would be playing this at her wedding mass I about had a cow. The girls who sings this sounds a little like Alicia Keys, and if you’ve been following along… you may have noticed I am the FARTHEST thing from that. ever. Period. The End.
I met the gentlemen I played with exactly 20 hours before we were supposed to play together.
With a wing and a prayer (and the talent of these two incredible musicians) this is the song that came out of it.
The peace that is communicated through these words stops me in my tracks, and I hope that today you can gain a little more peace also.
Major shout out to Father Rick for recording this while we were all singing during communion 😉
