Peace on the Tough Days

Today for our Monday Motivation we shared a special devotional out of Our Daily Bread called His Cross of Peace. It told the story of Simon of Cyrene and how he literally denied himself and carried the cross of our Lord. Can we do the same? Read the full devotional HERE.

We also shared the message from the song “Jireh” by Maverick City Music, a song we play on WNZR. One of the lines that stands out in the chorus is:

Jireh, You are enough.

Sometimes it can be hard to find the peace to realize that truth. I pray today that you can find that peace on the tough days to know that we serve a God who is enough in every circumstance.

Name a kind of building that has many beds on it.

Hotel/Motel – 51

Hospital – 20

Shelter – 14

Jail – 11

Dormitory – 3

Congratulations to our winner, Barbie, she won a $5 gift card to Round Hill Dairy!

The Australian duo is partnering with Convoy of Hope for the livestream in order to support our brothers and sisters through Christ in Ukraine.

Also, congratulations to FOR KING & COUNTRY for hitting #2 on the Billboard Album Chart for ALL GENRES with “What Are We Waiting For?”. God is moving through their music and it has been great to see!

Dan Bremnes announced last week that he is releasing a new album titled Into The Wild on June 17th. You can listen to one of the featured songs titled “Lover Of My Soul.”

His album invites listeners to leave fear behind and allow God to guide. Produced by Mike Wise, Andrew Bergthold, Benjamin Backus, Mark Campbell and Abe Parker, Bremnes’ second full-length project with Curb | Word Entertainment grafts pieces of his global expeditions into a sonic landscape that’s both diverse and accessible. This album describes many emotions including being full of gratitude for the present, adoration for his wife, and hope amidst uncertainty. The album features it’s lead single titled “Hold You Tight” as well as other previously released songs, “Run Away With Me” and Wouldn’t Change A Thing.”

“Lover Of My Soul” marvels at the mystery of a God who stays when we give Him every reason to walk away. Loaded with urgent strings and a high church choir, the heartfelt chorus transitions into a final bridge of total surrender. The album also features Carter Frodge along with former Tenth Avenue North frontman Mike Donehey, who also co-wrote seven of the album’s 10 tracks.

We gotta stay awake ’cause nobody knows the day or time,
