Be Still My Soul

The following is by Kevin Pfalser in response to our request for songs and Scriptures that have helped us during this time. Kevin is a close friend and a shepherd with the church in Cabot, Arkansas.

On the night of April 7th, we all experienced a "Super Moon." This was just after everything shut down and no one understood what was happening. After viewing many pictures from around the world the following morning, it struck me that the only thing we needed to understand was God was still in control.

David tells us that the heavens declare His glory. It was as if God was saying—Look up, this is me, I'm telling the moon to draw near as a reminder. Thinking about this reminded me of the song Be Still My Soul. I have been listening to this for the last month almost daily. My oldest sister has a daughter who is blessed with a beautiful soprano voice. I contacted her and asked her to just do a simple recording of this with her phone and post it. She felt odd at first, but did this for her uncle. I can't tell you how encouraging this was to me and our whole family. 

Listening to their cousin inspired my girls—who are all blessed with singing from their momma—to also record this. Sunday afternoon we were all together driving to Heber when they decided to practice the song—Shiretta joined them. Bruce, you understand how important small moments in time can be. It could not have lasted more than 15 minutes, but the sound of my girls harmonizing with their momma is a moment I will keep until I'm called home.

Be Still My Soul:

2 Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
to guide the future as He has the past.
Thy hope, they confidence let nothing shake;
all now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
His voice, who ruled them while He dwelt below.
