Amena Brown: Resurrection

This week, I’ll be taking a break from writing on my blog to post a few video clips that our Bluefish producers have created. I’m excited to spend this week taking a step back to reflect on all that our Savior has done for us and will continue to do.

I hope the videos posted this week will strengthen your faith and encourage you in whatever you’re facing today.

The voice behind this 2-minute video is spoken-word artist, Amena Brown.

Rain

I’ve heard it said once that you’re either in a storm, coming out of one, or getting ready to enter one.

Sounds encouraging, right?

Not really.

Over the past few months, my husband I have been in a little season of waiting on God and at times, it has felt like a horrible storm to me. We’ve been seeking answers and praying but everything has seemed silent. And I often tell God, will you just hurry up? Can’t you see that we’re waiting?

We’ve also faced storms of tragedy and different trials that have caused us to question if God is really there and if he really cares. And it’s usually that after we question (or continue to question), we might not get an answer but we sense a peace that He is still near. It’s as if He wants us to seek Him first and not so much an answer.

I always love hearing, reading, or watching an illustration that drives that truth home. I know Rob Bell’s NOOMA videos have been out for a while, but the truths in these videos are timeless. I have always loved the Rain illustration- I think it’s my favorite. It always helps reinforce to me where God is exactly in the storms of life.

Here it is in the 2-minute preview version.

Can you hear the still, quiet voice saying “I LOVE YOU… We’re gonna make it…”?

Video Friday: Masterpiece

Ever since I can remember, my mom told me that I was a masterpiece created by God. God has fashioned us all in his image. We are beautiful because He is beautiful. Every day he is chiseling us into his image. Because of the cross, we now have healing from the stripes and death for life… as Amena beautifully articulates.
