Hello friends. If you know me you know I am a major music lover, and this week one of my favorite singer/songwriters Matt Wertz released a new EP titled “While We’re Becoming.” This is a must if you want some music to end your winter blues and get you in the mood for spring and summer. I have been a fan of Matt since his Young Life days and his albums have always been among my favorites in music, and this EP is no different. As a fan I have enjoyed the progression and maturity of his music over the years and it has only gotten better with time. “While We’re Becoming” is a familiarly refreshing album that gives long-time fans the classic Wertz sound they have come to love, while providing them with a new and fresh side to his music. If you want some new music this album will not disappoint.

“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust is something we all struggle with from time to time. I know for me it is hard, especially when I do not know what is ahead. I am a planner by nature, and I like to know exactly what is going on. However, God has reminded me lately to rest in Him and not to stress or have so many questions over what is ahead. I will graduate in one year from seminary, and I already have a myriad of questions running through my head — “What am I supposed to do following graduation?, Where should I look for a job?, What type of ministry should I get involved with?, etc.” As these questions have gone through my mind God has reminded me of the past and how through every season He has been faithful to guide me. It does not matter if I do not know what to expect in my future, but what does matter is that I stay obedient to the Lord and trust in His daily guidance. It is comforting to me during times of the unknown to know that Jesus loved me so much that He died on the cross so that I might have life. Trusting in that great love can never lead me wrong and that is the only consistent thing that brings peace in all of my uncertainty. I pray that wherever you are that you can trust God today with your uncertainties and that you can find the peace that comes with resting in Him.
