Don’t Quit

Wishing to encourage her young son’s progress on the piano, a mother took her boy to a Paderewski concert.

After they were seated, the mother spotted a friend in the audience and walked down the aisle to greet her.

Seizing the opportunity to explore the wonders of the concert hall, the little boy rose and eventually explored his way through a door marked “NO ADMITTANCE”.

When the houselights dimmed and the concert was about to begin, the mother returned to her seat and discovered that her child was missing.

Suddenly, the curtains parted and the spotlights focused on the impressive Steinway piano on the stage. And, in absolute horror, the mother saw her son sitting at the piano, innocently picking out “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”.

At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance, quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy’s ear, “Don’t quit. Keep playing.”

Then leaning over, Paderewski reached down with his left hand and began filling in a bass part.

Soon his right arm reached around to the other side of the child and he added a running obligation.

Together, the old master and the young novice transformed a frightening situation into a wonderfully creative experience.

And the audience were mesmerized.

Whatever our situation in life and history – however outrageous, however desperate, whatever dry spell of the spirit, whatever dark night of the soul – GOD is whispering deep within our beings:-

Don’t quit. Keep playing. You are not alone, together we will transform the broken patterns into a masterwork of my creative art.

Together we will mesmerize the world with our song of peace”.

I am an author and broadcaster. In January 2013 I very nearly died but our Father God healed me and I am still alive to tell the tale! I have written/edited several books about the Bible, God, the Holy Spirit and Jesus. My future ministry is focused on outreach. I do not just want to preach to the converted but to many people 'out there' who do not know Jesus as their Saviour and who are in great need of His love and compassion. Praise be to the Lord our God, our Heavenly Father
