Be Still My Soul

Continuing the theme of stillness, this text is from Psalm 131. The central theme of this Psalm is humility. But even in the open-handedness, there’s an intentional burst of energy and disorder with the harmonies on the bridge section of this arrangement, to add contrast. Life circumstances bring both storm and stillness. The discipline of contentment is what helps us hold the center. Songs like this one help me practice holding the center, in the business, reminding myself to take deep breaths of gratitude.
