Podcast #382: “Come What May” by We Are Messengers

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

It’s easy to get swept away by our emotions when our environment changes. Circumstances don’t change God, but they may reveal Him to us in new ways. When We Are Messengers sing “Come What May,” I am reminded that I can rely on God no matter what.

David sings about this same thing in Psalm 23. Let’s explore it together.

In this episode I discuss:
