Song/Video of the Week: "Dark Horses" by Switchfoot

Bible Verse of the Week: Ezra 8:22b

"'The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to Him, but His great anger is against all who forsake Him.'" -Ezra 8:22b
We are constantly guarded by the sword and shield of our Lord. However, many believers do not express a holy jealousy for God's invisible protection by rather seeking constant aid from man. Why should we hastily run to man for assistance if the Lord is our implicit reliance? It is true that we are here for each other, but many overuse man's help resulting in belief in man instead of God. We should wait upon the Lord only. Do not dishonor God's Name by forsaking Him, but glorify It by always looking to Him. ~Jesselyn

Album Review: "One Silent Night" by FFH

Release Date: October 11, 2011
Genre: Christmas
Rating: 4.5/5 Stars


After thirteen projects, seven No. 1 singles, and over two million albums sold, FFH (Far From Home) releases their first Christmas album! Released on October 11 of this year, One Silent Night features Christmas classics as well as originals. I was given the opportunity to review this album which I promptly agreed to, and I must say that I am very glad I did.

The album opens with the classic song "Baby It's Cold Outside" with Jennifer taking lead vocals and Jeromy providing backup vocals, both of which mix together well in the entire album. The song really displays the great love between the two and has a great swing tune. Following it is another Christmas classic, "Jingle Bell Rock." Though this song never sounds as good as the original when covered, I still found FFH's version to sound great!

"One Silent Night" is the first original on the album as well as the first "Christian Christmas song." It

Bible Verse of the Week: Colossians 4:2

"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful." -Colossians 4:2
There are so many pages of the subject of prayer in the Bible. These pages show the importance and necessity of prayer. Whatever stands out in God's Word is intended to be observable in our lives. He has repeatedly spoken about prayer because He knows that we have great need of it. Our necessities are so great that we must never stop praying while we are on earth. Prayer is the watchward, comfort, strength, and honor of Christians. As children of God, we must seek our Father and live in His love. We must daily pray that we will be holy, grow closer to Him, shine to others, and live in obedience to Him. And pray that you will never forget to devote yourselves to prayer. -Jesselyn
