Let it Be
One of our daughters is practising the song “Let it Be” by the Beatles for a choir performance at Easter.
I had not known until recently that the “Mother Mary” who comes to Paul McCartney in the song is his own mother, who in times of trouble is “speaking words of wisdom, let it be”. His mother died when he was only 14 so it’s a poignant memory of feeling safe with her.
The song feels like the original version of “Let it go” from the movie Frozen, which is another song about letting go while dealing with angst.
But I think that before these great songs, their sentiments are in a record of Jesus words from John.
“In this world you will have trouble,
But take heart!
I have overcome the world”
In times of trouble, true comfort is knowing Jesus.
It helps me to “let it be” knowing what Jesus did for me at Easter….
We look forward to celebrating in 2 weeks time.
