Scribe’s Playlist — Be Still

Posted by Rebecca.

My heart felt heavy today as I sat to work on this post. I have friends who are struggling with life-threatening illness, job and income losses, deaths of loved ones, and the stresses of life.

As I pray for them and share heartfelt compassion for their circumstance, I have an inner peace that the God I love and gave my life to will, without a doubt, show himself real and faithful to each one of them in just the right time. That He will answer their cry for help and my simple prayers for them.

I know He will answer, and yet I understand the feelings of fear, sadness, and inadequacy my dear friends may be experiencing. Those feelings tend to war with our faith that God is with us and never leaves us. Those fears at times utter battle cries that may rise through the peaceful moments of our prayers and pierce our hearts.

Maybe it is to those warring fears we need to say, “Be Still! My God is with me and together we WILL have victory.”

Psalm 46:10 says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Those words “be still” are not just a call for silent worship. It was the voice of God addressing wicked warring nations to “cease and desist”. Warning them that He would be exalted, not them. That they had no chance of winning.

As I read and studied this verse today, I was reminded of the song from Bethel Music “Be Still”.

So, I invite you to share my headphones for a moment and enjoy…

Scribe’s Playlist — Jesus, King of Angels

Posted by Bridgett.

Scribe's PlaylistMy nephew, whom I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, spent many nights during his early years afraid to be awakened by nightmares. I was babysitting him one weekend, tucking him into bed, when he said, “I’m not afraid anymore, Auntie. Jesus is more powerful than bad dreams.” Since that night, and to this day, his prayers have always included a request for Jesus to send His angels to watch over him and keep bad dreams away as he sleeps.

While listening to the radio a few weeks ago, I was stunned at how closely the first verse of a song mirrored my nephew’s prayer. With that in mind, I invite you to share my headphones for a moment and enjoy…

Scribe’s Playlist — God’s Not Dead

Easter. Children hear the word and think of colored eggs and candy, bunnies and fancy clothes. For many adults, it brings to mind thoughts of warmer weather, spring air, renewal, and beauty. Christians hear “Easter” and think of Jesus–of love, sacrifice, freedom, and eternal joy.

Scribe's PlaylistEaster celebrates the greatest rescue of all time. When Love conquerd deception, when Life overthrew death, when Light extinguished the power of darkness. Resurrection!

Because He lives, I invite you to share my headphones for a moment and enjoy…

Scribes Playlist — Alive Again

Scribe's PlaylistI’ve searched through my playlists for a song to match the theme of the wonderful video posted here on Tuesday. Several themes stood out to me after watching it, and I finally settle upon one: if we truly long for God’s presence, He will break through any darkness we allow in our lives to reach us, sometimes in startling ways.

With that in mind, I invite you to share my headphones for a moment and enjoy…
