Podcast #281: “I’m Gonna Let It Go” by Jason Gray

When we were new parents we logged every aspect of our new baby’s life. Some family members mocked us, but for my husband and me it gave us a feeling of control — as if by writing it down we could influence the outcome. In his song, “I’m Gonna Let It Go,” Jason Gray sings of our desire to “control” things while God is patiently waiting for us to surrender to Him.

Through a quick look at the interchange between a prophet and a king, we can make some pretty profound conclusions.

Podcast #280: “Greatness of Our God” by Newsboys United

It’s time. It’s time to get a little excited about how great God really is. Strike up the band (or at least Newsboys United’s song “Greatness of Our God”) and turn to Psalm 150, because it’s time to acknowledge the greatness of our God.

Do you keep a record of the mighty works of God?

Podcast #279: “Do Something” by Matthew West

Helen Keller once said, “I am only one, but still I am one.  I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”  This quote has been next to my computer for over 15 years.  I am reminded of it and of what James has to say about our faith being evident through our actions every time I hear Matthew West’s song, “Do Something.”

I want a faith that is vibrant and alive.  Don’t you?  We’ll discuss this and more on this week’s episode.

Podcast #278: “Alive” by Big Daddy Weave

Have you ever read about people who have been given a new lease on life? Perhaps it was a medical breakthrough or second chance, but their lives changed completely. These examples pale in comparison to what happens when we are made alive with Christ. Big Daddy Weave sings about it in their new song, “Alive.”

Paul writes about it in his letter to the Ephesians. Let’s explore it together!

Podcast #277: “Look Up Child” by Lauren Daigle

This week’s episode is in tribute to my mentor’s daughter. In life and in death she inspired others to lift their faces to the One Who could save them. That’s why Lauren Daigle’s song “Look Up Child” inspires us to explore Scripture today.

Let’s dive in to some key Scriptures where God’s people are called to look up and live.

Podcast #276: “You Got This” by Love and the Outcome

There’s an impossible situation. You know the one. You lay it at the feet of Jesus only to pick it right back up again. Why do we do that? Perhaps we lack the faith to recognize God’s “got this.” Love and Outcome gives an encouraging message to remind us that God has it all in hand.

God proves Himself over and over again in Scripture. Let’s peek into a couple of true accounts.

Podcast #275: “Resurrecting” by Elevation Worship

God specializes in bringing dead things back to life. From the first pages of Genesis when man walked into death through mistrust and disobedience God mapped out the plan to defeat death forever. Elevation Worship’s song “Resurrecting” celebrates the resurrecting power of our resurrected Savior.

Let’s explore what Scripture has to say about what it looks like to come back from the dead.

Podcast #274: “Find You Here” by Ellie Holcomb

Challenges in our lives will never stop coming. Like waves that ebb and flow in strength and number, our trials and suffering come in and go out, but they never stop coming. The solution is to fix our eyes on God and the hope revealed in His Word. Ellie Holcomb’s song “Find You Here” reminds us that He is in the midst of each ordeal…even the darkest ones.

Peter knew he needed to prepare believers for fiery trials, too. Let’s let our song lead us there this week.

Podcast #273: “Well Done” by The Afters

We live in a world where we want the results, but are often unwilling to put in the work. I agree with The Afters when they sing about wanting to hear the words “well done” in the end. Jesus makes it clear in his parables the characteristics of those inheriting the kingdom of God.

Let’s make some discoveries and ACT on what we find.
