Don't Give Up

You’ve been hearing a new song on K-LOVE.  It’s called “Don’t Give Up” by Calling Glory.  It’s a simple message that I hear is having a big impact on you.

I got to talk to K-LOVE listener, Rebecca, today about how it came at just the right time for her.

She said her family is going through some tough times.  She didn’t give details, I don’t know about you, but I can understand what she’s talking about.

She said, “We’re at the point where we want to throw our hands up, the part of the song that says, ‘surely help is on the way’, we keep saying that back and forth to each other.”

This time your heart said its had enough
Sick and tired of everything that's so messed up
You don't wanna move on just playing games
Praying hard somehow your life will change
When you feel like you don't know what to do
Stuck inside this maze you can't go through
Don't give up
and help is surely on its way
Read full lyrics

Don’t give up hope.  Don’t give up praying.  Don’t give up on God.  He hasn’t given up on you.  Surely help is on the way.

Landon gets that.  Here’s a video he made about his story and this song.

What’s yours?  What is that you won’t give up on?

No Judgement

I don’t know about you, but the new song "Jesus in Disguise" from Brandon Heath reminds me of that verse in the bible that says, “When you serve the least of these you serve me.”

That person, you might be so quick to judge based on the way they look, or their lifestyle, is Jesus in Disguise.

I saw this thing in the news about a woman in Michigan named Telisia. She was well selling her body on the streets.  And she’s looking for the couple that came up to her and simply asked her if they could pray with her. She didn’t get change her life in that moment, that would come later, but she knew that someone was praying for her, someone cared.

Now, 14 years later she works for a ministry in her church fighting human trafficking.  She's gone to the media to find that couple who were praying for her.  She wants to say thank you.

I love what she says was the best thing about that prayer encounter, “There was no judgment – not even asking if they could help me."
