Divine Distraction

Music from the Heart: Restoration by David Brymer

You know that feeling you get when something you have been really anxious about for a long time is suddenly and unexpectedly resolved? That sense of relief that is so powerful that it almost takes your breath away and brings you to tears? It is immediately followed by an overwhelming sense of peace as you hear a voice deep down inside you gently whisper, “It’s all going to be okay.”

That’s the feeling I got Tuesday afternoon – and for no apparent reason.

It was about 4:30 in the afternoon, and my work day was almost over. I was sitting at my desk, deeply engrossed in something so important that I can’t even remember now what it was. Anyway, it was as if Someone tapped me on the shoulder and pulled my attention away from what I was doing, so strong was this sense of release and peace that came over me.

I had no idea what it was all about, and I still don’t know for sure. But I have chosen the path of not questioning why, opting rather to simply rest in this crazy peace that has come once again and wrapped itself around me like a warm blanket.

There are things my spirit has been wrestling with for quite some time, and I can only hope that this sense of release is a foretaste of a pending breakthrough. I felt a physical response to this sense relief that came over me that day – a lifting of a burden, a somewhat lighter feeling.

The last few days, this peace has continued. Each day since, what has kept repeating over and over inside me is the song “Restoration, ” specifically the tag at the end of the song, which simply says,

“Hallelujah, hallelujah,
You make all things new, You make all things new

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
You make all things new.”

So, dear friend, on this late spring day, in the swirl of graduations & weddings, farewells and new beginnings, my wish for you is simply this:

May the peace that passes understanding overtake you in a moment when you least expect it. May you encounter divine distractions that snatch your awareness away from whatever you are doing and lands it squarely into the face of the Lover of your soul. Amen. So let it be.

The God of peace be with you all.
