25 May Dissonance
first a bit of
Many refugees feel as if they are living in a giant season of dissonance. If their story was a piece of music, this moment would be the clash of notes, the melody that breaks, the chord that disturbs. Yet like every great piece of music, the greatest dissonance comes before the biggest swell and the sweetest resolution. We surround this population in prayer with great hope that beauty can come from even the greatest sadness.
“The aria they performed was a song to break the heart, full of tragic dissonance and deferred hope, and yet somewhere beneath it all was a piercing refrain of glory, glory, glory.” –R.J. Anderson
“…He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.” –Isaiah 61:3
Pray for the Good News to ring like a sweet and refreshing melody in the hearts of refugees. Pray confidently that God’s love would bring purpose and resolution from the dissonance that has weighed down the hearts of so many.
Thank you for your faithful prayers!
