This week’s featured song story comes to us from Cody Carnes. We’re excited to share with you the story behind his song “Nothing Else.”
“I came to a place a few months ago where I realized that I had just let some of the stuff creep into my heart where I was more concerned with what God could do for me and what He could give me than just Him.I started to be disappointed cause things didn’t work out the way I thought they would or things weren’t being answered the way I thought they should. And I just had a moment one day where I just kinda recognized that in my heart and I realized it for the first time. It just broke me and I said ‘God you know I don’t want that, I want you.’ So I wanted to write this song just to repent. To really turn from that into, ok I’m coming back to what really matters.” –Cody Carnes

This week’s featured song story comes to us from Hillsong Worship. We’re excited to share with you the story behind their song “Seasons.”
“You think about God. God is God and He can do whatever He wants at any moment at any time. He can fulfill all His promises just like that.But so often He takes His time. There’s a lyric in the bridge of the song ‘you could’ve saved us in a second, instead you sent a child.’ I think Jesus is the perfect example of that. How God is so okay with playing the long game. Like sending a baby in order to fulfill a plan that would initiate 30 something years later and then roll out even into today. There’s so much in that.”—Hillsong Worship
