good news Verse for today
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him,,standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. -- 1 Peter 5: 8-9

Kurt's Music News

ANDREW PETERSON:  IS HE WORTHY?
 
Every few years, a song comes along that follows none of the rules and checks none of the boxes.  Yet it becomes something special, something bigger than a typical hit song.  Every time we play this song for someone, their response is something resembling “That's beautiful.” – Centricity Music
 
 “Is He Worthy?” by Andrew Peterson contains a call-and-reply to the congregation, asking who is worthy to heal creation and conquer the grave.
 
Do you feel the world is broken?  (We do)
Do you feel the shadows deepen?  (We do)
But do you know that all the dark won't stop the light from getting through?  (We do)
Do you wish that you could see it all made new?  (We do)
 
Is all creation groaning?  (It is)
Is a new creation coming?  (It is)
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst?  (It is)
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?  (It is)
 
Is anyone worthy? Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David's root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave
 
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory
Is He worthy of this?  He is
 
The video is beautifully crafted.  Watch it here.
 
I AM THEY:  SCARS

The group I Am They has a new song that celebrates “Scars.”
 
“It's natural for us to hide our scars; whether they're physical, emotional or spiritual. If we're being honest, it's because we're afraid of what people would think about us - or worse, that our scars are our identity. As we were writing this song, we had this realization that Jesus did not hide His scars, in fact they were a constant reminder of all He had sacrificed.”
 
Waking up to a new sunrise
Looking back from the other side
I can see now with open eyes
 
Darkest water and deepest pain
I wouldn't trade it for anything
'Cause my brokenness brought me to You

And these wounds are a story You'll use
So I'm thankful for the scars
'Cause without them I wouldn't know Your heart
And I know they'll always tell of who You are
So forever I am thankful for the scars

JASMINE MURRAY: WHILE YOU WERE HOLDING ME

Jasmine Murray was a finalist on American Idol in 2009, and was Miss Mississippi in 2014.  She says her new song is a tribute to her mother’s Christian faith:
 
"I grew up in a single parent home.  My mom raised five children on her own and has always displayed the most incredible faith - even in the hardest circumstances."
 

While You Were Holding Me
All that darkness you lived through
Couldn’t dim the light inside of you
All the broken pieces
You kept giving them to Jesus
And He gave you strength to raise me up
Knowing one day I would see
He was holding you
While you were holding me
