The past five years, I have had my share of hardship. In the midst of that hardship, I have found hope and peace for each day and a way to enjoy life in spite of the hardship. But that doesn’t mean I don’t get “rocked” every now and then. I just find a way to hold on.
This past week I received some disappointing news. I could have kicked, screamed, cried, and yelled. (And I’m not saying I have never done that.) But this time, I felt calm and was mentally trying to assess and process the situation and form an action plan. The next morning, I was about my morning ritual preparing for work and listening to my favorite piano player on his free Internet station. (If you have followed my writings or clicked on my “About” tab, you know who that is.) 🙂
A guest piano artist appeared on his station – instrumental only. Oh, that tune from my past – my heritage – touched my soul and has been my peace since. I’m not an eloquent singer, but I had to sing those words out loud with the piano. I was the soloist performing to my own soul. All of the lyrics are priceless, but what grabbed hold of my heart yesterday morning was that my “problem kingdom” WILL pass away, but that name will not … Jesus.
Listen, and sing to your soul. And if you don’t know the words, leave a comment. I’ll make sure you get them. How blessed I am to know those words. Thank you, Mother!
