A few months ago, I shared Andrew Peterson's video "Be Kind to Yourself", which remains one of my favorite songs. Indeed, the whole album, The Burning Edge of Dawn, is a treat to the ears and a balm to the soul. Peterson's words capture the heart of spiritual direction, they relay the reality of the Christian life. In a world that praises efficiency and immediacy, Peterson understands that sanctification is a slow, life-long, process. God works with us a patient farmer, pruning and weeding and watering our souls.
I am so glad that Stephen Proctor set this song and lyrics to images. It is a gift.
