'Down in the River to Pray' by Nevaeh: A Harmonious Call to God's Grace

Here is a familiar hymn with a modern twist. 'Down in the River to Pray' by Nevaeh is a beautiful rendition of the original song. For those who are unfamiliar with this song, the song is a gentle nudge to remind you that no matter how busy your day is, there's always a quiet place by 'the river' to pray, reflect, and reconnect with God.  The fact that this is a golden oldie doesn't mean that the message is no longer relevant, on the contrary, the message couldn't be more fitting for us today.

Nick Rector's 'How Can It Be': An Anthem of the Heavenly Promise

'How Can It Be,' by Nick Rector, is a song with a story that was carefully shaped over the years. A song influenced by other songs about God's throne and His saving grace. You feel the reverence behind every word.  Nick does a great job of describing the mystery of God moving the planets and taking on a human form, something that is both overwhelming and extremely intimate. The words make you thankful for the God who came to earth to become man and died for our salvation.  As I listen to the song, my mind ponders on His love-that He was painfully nailed to a cross, and paved the way for us to be eternally free. It becomes a prayer, a declaration, and a benediction that shapes our lives as Christians.  What a beautiful reminder that Jesus is worthy of our lives and our love. He is enough! We can rest in the fact that He is more than enough, and we can find comfort through His sacrifice. So go ahead, listen to the song and join in the endless anthem of His worth. (Related scr
