Shabbat Shalom All!
My generation closed out this week’s portion of the “Seismic Waves” watch this morning; we entered in to beautiful worship and a word came forth that this was our “selah;” our rest in the midst of war. We also replaced our Israel flag out front with a larger one this morning, as you’ll see in the below video.
As I walked through the garden today, I continued to feel that rest that we had experienced this morning. The garden was unbelievably beautiful and peaceful today. When I started my walk through, it was cloudy – by the time I finished (you’ll see the change in the video) the sky was blue and the sun was shining. It was almost as if the Lord had cleared the skies just for my walk, because by the time I got back out front to film the Israel flag, it was cloudy again.
The video is set to the classical piece titled “The Lark Ascending,” performed by Sir Andrew Davis and the BBC orchestra. This piece was written by Vaughan Williams in response to the poem of the same name, which I highly recommend reading. You can read it in its entirety by clicking here.
Please watch this video and enter in to your own rest as we begin Shabbat, and thank God for His refreshing peace in the midst of battle.
