Music for the Soul

Nearer My God to Thee, a favorite hymn of mine, is preformed by Steven Sharp Nelson, one of the The Piano Guys, on the Cello . . . his playing inspires me. As you watch you can tell the music comes from the depths of his soul—every fiber of his being captures each note as he plays.

Watch a moment then close your eyes and listen and let the music infiltrate your soul as you meditate on God's greatness and His desire to draw near to us, the very reason he sent His Son Jesus. This is what I am doing!
 
"I Will praise you, O LORD, with all my heart; before the "gods" I will sing your praise. I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your love and your faithfulness, for you have exalted above all things your name and your word. When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted," (Psalm 138: 1-3).
My prayer for us:

Our Father,
How easy it is to forget how near you are to us. You are not a distant God by no means. All we have to do is call out your name and you answer us. You say those who seek you will find you. I know also you love to show your self strong to those who are in need. Draw near to your people, Lord and cause us to be aware of your presences. In Jesus, Amen!
