The Lord Is My Chef Sunday Music by Fr. Nick F. Lalog II, 13 June 2021
St. Paul reminds us on this lovely Sunday that we walk in faith, not by sight while Jesus tells us in his parables that God is always present with us, silently working in us, with us and for us in the same manner he makes a seed grow into a huge tree or a crop with abundant harvests without us knowing how it all happened (https://lordmychef.com/2021/06/12/the-silent-works-of-god/).
This Sunday’s readings perfectly match Stevie Wonder’s 1973 hit Don’t You Worry ’bout a Thing that is bursting in happiness with its lyrics telling us to focus on positive things, taking things in stride, not to worry too much and just chill.
Everybody's got a thing But some don't know how to handle it Always reachin' out in vain Accepting the things not worth having but Don't you worry 'bout a thing Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama Cause I'll be standing on the side When you check it out They say your style of life's a drag And that you must go other places But just don't you feel too bad When you get fooled by smiling faces but
It is exactly what Jesus is telling us today in his parables: the kingdom of God begins with little things like the seeds that grow without us doing much because it is God who takes care of everything and so….
Don't you worry 'bout a thing Don't you worry 'bout a thing, mama Cause I'll be standing on the side When you check it out...Yeah When you get it off...your trip Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah Don't you worry 'bout a thing...Yeah
Making this music so perfect after you have come from the Church’s Sunday celebrations is its joyful music so infectious in Latin beat with a lot of piano and percussions waxed perfectly by Stevie’s superb voice and usual warmth felt even if you do not see him.
The song reminds us too of AGT’s recent golden buzzer winner Nighbirde, a cancer patient said on that episode that “You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore before you decide to be happy.”
So true! Celebrate life in Jesus always and don’t you worry ’bout a thing as he takes care of everything!
