“Be still in the Light of My Presence while I communicate love to you…” (Sarah Young, Jesus Calling). Life can get so busy that we forget to take time to be still. God wants us to be still so that we may become more aware of and enjoy His Presence all the more. Then we can be refreshed by His unconditional love! I pray this music helps you find time to be still and be drawn into God’s presence, as Brother Lawrence experienced: “The King, full of mercy and goodness, very far from chastising me, embraces me with love, makes me eat at His table, serves me with His own hands, gives me the key of His treasures; He converses and delights Himself with me incessantly, in a thousand and a thousand ways, and treats me in all respects as His favorite. It is thus I consider myself from time to time in His holy presence.” (The Practice of the Presence of God). This episode includes: 1. His Presence (new) 2. More Than a Baby (from Prayerful Improvisations: Christmas) 3. White Yarrow—The Hero (from Flowers) 4. My Heart’s Delight (new) God bless you and thanks for listening! - Peter

Episode 6
Light. It’s something we can see, explain with science, and experience its natural benefits. But what if “Light” is also a person? The author of John’s Gospel writes that Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life (John 8:12)”. May the light of Christ reveal His goodness and grace to you today and shine brightly in the darkness to lead you to “everlasting light.” This episode includes: 1. O Gracious Light (new) 2. Revealing Light (from Impressions) 3. Light in the Darkness (new) God bless you and thanks for listening! - Peter

Episode 4
As we near the close of the first month of 2019, I imagine there have been moments of tension, worry and anxiety in your life. Let the “unfathomable peace” of God pour over you and wash away anything that pulls you away from His Presence. Enjoy a moment in His dwelling place and be renewed and refreshed. This episode includes: 1. Gentle Snow (from Prayerful Improvisations: Christmas) 2. Your Dwelling Place (from Prayerful Improvisations: Worship) 3. Unfathomable Peace (new) 4. Gentle Whisper (from Impressions) God bless you and thanks for listening! - Peter

Episode 3
As I write this from my New England home, our house is surrounded by icy snow, temperatures in the single digits, and a general gloominess from the lack of color in the sky or on the ground. But I’m reminded that no matter what our circumstances, “This is the day the Lord has made! So let us rejoice and be glad in it!” (Psalm 118:24). The Lord surrounds us with the warmth of His love and brings light to the darkness. So I pray today’s music will encourage you to press on and enjoy this day, the day God made just for you. This episode includes: 1. A New Day (new improvisation) 2. Patience, from Spirit Suite (from Glimpses of the Spirit) 3. Sunflower (from Flowers) 4. For the Beauty of the Earth (new improvisation) God bless you and thanks for listening! - Peter
