Podcast #136: “Live Like You’re Loved” by Hawk Nelson

An Example of Living Loved Through the Life of Joseph in Genesis 37-50

There is something that happens when you begin to understand that you are fully loved by God. But it is an entirely different process to start LIVING loved. Hawk Nelson’s song, “Live Like You’re Loved,” sent me on a journey through a good portion of Genesis to examine the life of a man who gives us an example of living loved.

Podcast #126: “Diamonds” by Hawk Nelson

Reviewing the Refining Process

Is it possible to be grateful for pain? It’s all about perspective. We are all willing to endure pain if we believe the final result to be worth it. Hawk Nelson’s song, “Diamonds,” has me thinking about the refining process. This song, and the Scripture we uncover on this episode, may be the revelation you need to make it through whatever fiery trial you are enduring.

Stick with me and you will see that God has a “place of abundance” for you on the other side of this refining.
