Podcast #237: “Known” by Tauren Wells

Discovering the How, How Much, and Why We Are Known by God in Psalm 139

You are not invisible.

You are known.

Tauren Well’s song “Known” sings about it and so does David in Psalm 139. When you let the truths of this Psalm sink into your being it will change you.
