I ran across Matt on FB and began following his podcasts about a year ago. I really love Matt’s podcasts! Especially all the encouragement. I had always been an encourager myself, and I found his podcasts, when I needed that for myself as a metal artist. Waiting on God’s timing to unfold his promises. I had always jumped in and boldly walked forward. But for me, this was a season of healing my past, restoring all things in my life and bringing me out. Founded like never before on Christ, my Rock! Thank you for the endless interview’s of other creative’s. journey with the Lord. Their blessings and struggles which helps us all feel connected.
All I can say is I am so thankful God has moved Matt and many other Christian groups in the arts to stand boldly in the Lord’s Word. I felt so alone in the late 90’s. In 2007 despite all my struggles and mishaps. God answered my prayers. Giving me a new creative language as sculptural work founded completely in Him! Bolder, brighter! Stronger! It’s just so exciting that artists are coming out in faith within His church. It’s great to know I no longer have to feel left out as I did in the metals field! God was showing me... His field is universal! God is Amazing!! Thanks Matt!!
Thank you for this podcast. I had subscribe a long time ago but didn’t listen for whatever reason. We know God is sovereign and I may not have been matured enough to grasp all the nuggets given on this podcast. I am growing as an artist by way of this podcast. Thank you! I’m excited and encouraged. God bless you!
