Podcast Episode #14: How Sweet the Sound by Citizen Way and Zephaniah 3:17

What kind of sound does grace make? Why, a song, of course! Citizen Way puts a new spin on an old hymn and weaves in new truths through Scriptures in Zephaniah and the Psalms and many more. This song gives us many entrance points to jump into God’s Word on our own this week.

Zephaniah 3:17 square

Did you know that God sings over you? What an amazing thought.

Podcast Episode #9: Oceans (Where Feet May Fail) and Matthew 14:27

Have you noticed that Jesus does not calm the storm BEFORE he calls Peter to step out onto the water? You will notice this and more as you meditate on Matthew’s account of Jesus and Peter walking on water this week. Once the story becomes alive in ways you never thought possible, every time you hear Hillsong United’s song “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” you will be drawn into the narrative again and hopefully be encouraged as God calls you into deeper waters with Him.

As He calls you to deeper waters, He will give you His courage and hold your hand all the way.

On this episode, I discuss:

  • The context of what this week’s song highlights – Matthew 14:22-33
  • 4 ways to engage Scripture
  • Detailed ideas on how to meditate on Scripture starting this week!
  • How this song and the related Scripture has impacted me
  • Allowing music to open our hearts as we cry out to God in worship and prayer
  • Our memory verse for this week and a word study on “take courage”

Podcast Episode #8: Nothing Ever (Could Separate Us) and Romans 8:38

Separation anxiety doesn’t just happen in children. It happens in our hearts as well. Paul, the author of Romans, even gave us fairly detailed lists of things that we might fear could separate us from God’s love.  Thankfully, the verdict is in…NOTHING can ever separate us from God’s love.

Romans-8-28-squareI personally LOVE it when singing a song helps me remember Scripture word-for-word, and this week’s song by Citizen Way does just that.

On this episode, I discuss:

  • Our memory verse in context – Romans 8:35-39
  • Paul’s list of areas that we may fear can separate us from God’s love
  • A deeper look at the word “separate”
  • How our own separation anxiety may display itself in our lives and how to address it
  • An amazing discovery about what it means to be “more than conquerors”
  • How Paul is convinced of this week’s truth and how we can be, too

Podcast Episode #5: Wanted and Isaiah 41:9

In college, my friends and I would pump each other up by saying, “You’re good enough, you’re smart enough and doggone it…people like you!”  I can’t say that is EXACTLY what Scripture says, but the sentiment surely is found in God’s Word AND in this week’s song by Dara Maclean.

I hope you find encouragement from this week’s episode, because, dear friend…you ARE wanted!

On this episode I discuss:

  • Isaiah 41:9 – our memory verse for this week
  • The context of Isaiah
  • The fact that we have an enemy and he is described in Scripture as our “accuser”
  • 1 Peter 2:9 – a New Testament reference to the fact that we are chosen
  • A piece of my personal story and why I believe that I am wanted despite my life’s circumstances
  • Psalm 139 – I just highlight a few verses from this Psalm in this episode, but I want you to “soak” in it this week
  • Jeremiah 29:10-13
  • Your challenge this week based on Scripture
