Jason Castro- Going Deeper

Wowzers! It has been a busy week for me full of unpacking from my brazil trip (which I am still intending on telling you about), doing laundry, working, rehearsing, and repacking for our next tour; returning from one trip, only to be heading out for another, but at least this coming tour will be domestic. More is to be shared about all that very very soon! Stand by! Today is Tuesday and it is about time for another inspiring blog post, wouldn't you say?

TESTIMONY TUESDAY!

“Return home and tell how much God has done for you.”

~ Luke 8:39


Presenting with excitement, I introduce to you Testimony Tuesdays!!! A testimony by definition is: a formal written or spoken statement, a public recounting of a religious conversion or experience. The Bible commands us in numerous places to bring praise, glory, and honor to our God by proclaiming, declaring, and telling about His marvelous works to others. That is the purpose and heart behind this installment for my Tuesday posts. Each Tuesday (more or less), a testimony will be shared here involving the recounting of salvation, redemption, overcoming, and/or healing just to name a few; A story that brings glory to our God and in which we might be encouraged, spurred on, and challenged with at the same time.The stories that will be shared will either be of my own personal experiences, excerpts from books, testimonies I find via youtube or other media sources, as well as YOURS! I would love to know and give you the opportunity to share here with us a testimony of your own, of whatever fashion that involves the Lord doing a transforming work in your life. Just email me your testimony and I will see what I can do about posting it on a future Tuesday! You may choose to have your name be known or anonymous. I look forward to hearing from you!

 I tend to think the salvation testimonies displaying the transformation of a nonbeliever into a new believer by the divine, sovereign power of God are the most exciting, God-glorifying kind; but now I am starting to understand how it is wrong of me to think that way. Sure, it is most definitely a powerful thing to witness a heart of stone softened and miraculously turned into a heart of fleshto see a sinner repent, surrender and be set free! And sure, I can't think of anything more beautiful than seeing a new believer's eyes opened up for the first time to the majesty and glory of our Lord God and Savior, BUT God's word reminds us that He is working his loving kindness, grace, mercy and redemption in longtime committed believers too, which is just as exciting and beautiful! Each day we have an opportunity to be made new by His forgiveness; every moment even. It is as the scripture found in Philippians says:  be confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. 

If you are any bit familiar with the Fox television hit series American Idol, then you've probably heard the name Jason Castro. Jason Castro was the fourth-place finalist on season seven of American Idol and has established himself today as an acoustic/folk-pop/contemporary Christian singer and songwriter. He uses his platform of his stardom to bring glory to Jesus Christ which reminds me of my awesome boss Keith Thibodaux, who does similarly. Today's video clip featured below (that my mom actually helped me find ^_^ ) illuminates a bit of Castro's story and how he, as a believer has arrived at the point in which he is today. He has also had a couple of great media clips produced with one of my favorite ministries I AM SECONDHERE and HERE that you should be sure to check out additionally!

 Be blessed and encouraged!




Happy Tuesday!
