When I first started teaching Bible to high school students at Red Lion Christian Academy, Todd Agnew released today’s featured song. Whenever This Fragile Breath came on our local Christian radio station, I couldn’t get enough of this song which combines a great beat with biblical lyrics. As this song nears the end, I’m always touched by the extended chorus of “Speak to me; Speak to me please.”
And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire [a sound of gentle stillness and] a still, small voice, 1 Kings 19:11.
The context of the passage above occurs as Elijah is battling depression. After receiving a death threat from Queen Jezebel, Elijah stops eating and begins to mope. Whenever I go through difficult periods in life, I’m oblivious to what God is trying to teach me. Sometimes it takes experiencing a natural disaster to open our ears to hearing God’s still small voice. May listening to this classic song draw you closer to God.
