Podcast #120: “Great Is Our God” by Plumb

Slowing Down in Psalm 145

The Bible is full of songs of praise. When we consider the words of these songs, we see deep, rich, pattern-altering examples of how to appropriately respond to our great God. The lyrics of “Great Is Our God” by Plumb are reflected in a song written by David and given to us as Psalm 145.

Sometimes we blow past these meaningful songs without letting them sink in and transform the way we think. This week we will slow down.

On this episode I discuss:

Podcast #79: “Exhale” by Plumb

A deeper look at Rahab's story and legacy as found in Joshua 2

What does your life breathe out? What is your exhale? Plumb’s song, “Exhale” inspires me to breathe in as much truth, love and grace as I can hold so that truth, love and grace is what I breathe out. This week we explore the story of Rahab and discover what her life’s “exhale” was.

Podcast #52: “Lord I’m Ready Now” by Plumb & the Book of Jonah

God: “Arise, go…” Us: “Uh, no thank you.” Cue scene where we run away…far, far away. How is that working for you? Well, it didn’t work for Jonah, and this week’s song, “Lord I’m Ready Now” by Plumb, could almost be a soundtrack for the 48 verse story found in the Old Testament.
