A cellist plays in Ukraine and it’s a powerful moment as the beautiful music drifts across the backdrop of war-torn streets.
The musician sits in a chair in the middle of empty streets that tell the horrors of war. The once vibrant city that was full of life is now a shell of what it once was.
As the cellist plays the tune created by Bach via the Cello in C five minor, the classic world-renowned piece fills the warzone in Ukraine. The only other sound to be heard is the wind with the expectation of a passing car.
Underneath the video, the cellist by the name of Akustikos Art Group writes, "We’ve all been at war for a month now. War is terrible, but we must not be afraid because the truth is on our side, and each of us can help in this struggle, in his own place. And it is especially important who is next to you." He adds his gratitude and wrote, "I hug and thank those close people who made our project possible, Anna Kolomiytseva, Oleksandr Osipov Photography, God bless you!"
We pray that those who have been affected by this war are blessed in immeasurable and in innumerable ways by our mighty God. He has the power to protect, comfort, and keep the Ukrainians still living in the war zone safe.
Cellist Plays In Ukraine Amidst War-Damaged Streets
The video where the cellist plays in Ukraine garnered over 4,000 views shortly after its posting. And many viewers left comments for God to continue to bless the Ukrainians.
One viewer wrote, "Music is the refuge of the soul, both can't be destroyed, a cello is more powerful than a machine gun ... keep playing my brave friend ... you inspire and Bach redeems..." Another wrote, "Stay strong and thank you for sharing your courage. I can’t imagine what you all are going through." However, most of the comments asked for God to bless them and keep them safe.
Their plight reminds us that no matter what tragedy or dark valley we walk through, the Lord is our mighty helper. And because he is on our side, we are reminded we are mere mortals and God is on our side.
Let us pray for the Ukrainians and let us pray for God to end the war. We hope you enjoyed this hauntingly beautiful and class piece.
"So we can confidently say, "‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?'" Hebrews 13:6
