Peace amidst drums?

Praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Psalm 150:5

I listened to a video of “Little Drummer Boy” today posted by a friend of mine.  It was so peaceful listening to him and his partner singing this beautiful song with just the piano to accompany them.  It was a great way to start out the Advent season.

I cherish the peacefulness I felt while listening.

It wasn’t a peace as we sometimes find in this world.  The world’s peace is just a temporary respite, something like a short sigh, in the midst of busyness.  The peace I felt was a deeper peace.  A deep, satisfying pool, no! a wide river of peace flowing through my soul.

“Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you. Job 22:21

A peace that combines not just satisfaction or quiet, but a secured restfulness, a redeeming love, a completed forgiveness, and a rooted abiding Divinity.

I am at peace with God through His Son Jesus Christ.

That is true peace.

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Phil 4:7

This is not my friend’s video, but as I was searching for an appropriate one this one caught my eye.  I had chills as I watched it.  I’m kind of partial to drummer boys because my son plays drums.

This is true peace amidst drums…

Jesus, I’ve heard people say that drums have no place in worship service…oh, really?  What arrogance to deny the gifts you so beautifully place within the hearts and minds and hands of men.  I thank you for the song “Little Drummer Boy” and “It is Well With My Soul”.  I thank you for winning peace for our souls as you drummed out our salvation on the cross; your heart beating and pouring out its blood to cover our sin.  May every drummer boy or girl find peace through Jesus’ work on the cross, Amen.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
