More Than a Song is a weekly podcast dedicated to helping you discover the truth of Scripture hidden in today's popular Christian music. Each episode teaches you to connect portions of God's Word with the songs you are singing along with on the radio; to help you meditate on Truths that will transform your way of thinking and ultimately your life.
"Shattered" by Blanca
I dropped a glass casserole lid on my tile kitchen floor the other day. It shattered into a host of small pieces. I'm still finding pieces of glass here and there. There's a difference between being broken and shattered. Shattered seem so irreparable. In Blanca's song "Shattered" she reminds us that the task of putting the shattered pieces back together is not too big for God. Scripture offers many examples of shattered lives that God touches. We'll look at one example together this week.
"Anyhow" by Tye Tribbett
What does it mean to live by faith? I'm not sure there's a simple answer to that question, but one practice may provide evidence. Tye Tribbett sings about it in his song "Anyhow" -- trusting and praising God no matter what comes our way. Let's explore the life and times of a prophet whose complaint to God could have been written this morning, and whose prayer we can mimic in our own lives.
"Look No Further" by Evvie McKinney
There are a lot of solutions offered in the world today. Unfortunately, most worldly solutions don't identify the root problem -- sin. In her song "Look No Further," Evvie McKinney reminds us that we don't have to look any further than Jesus for the salvation we seek. Her response of "look no further than Jesus" feels like an answer to a question posed in Scripture. Join me as we take a closer look at the life of John the Baptist and a key question he asks from prison.
"Patiently Praising (feat. Lowell Pye)" by Fred Jerkins
As our trust in the Lord grows, our patience grows. Fred Jerkins' song "Patiently Praising" not only points us to promises we can cling to in Scripture but serves as a challenge in our own lives to praise while we await a resolution to painful parts of our lives. I didn't have to look any further than specific references to Scripture right in the song to get inspired to dive into God's Word. Join me!
"Truth Be Told" by Matthew West
There's a shortage of truth in the world today. Of course, the definition of truth seems to up for grabs for some, but today we're talking about sincerity in action without pretense. Matthew West sings about this in his song "Truth Be Told." Jesus teaches about it in the Gospel of Matthew. Spend some time this week examining the words of Jesus with an open heart.
Graves Into Gardens ft. Brandon Lake by Elevation Worship
We spend so much time trying to make things happen in our lives. This last year has shown us on a global level how little control we have. Elevation Worship's song "Graves Into Gardens" reminds us that God does transformational things -- and He's the only One Who can. Let's use this song to send us to the words of a prophet and a king to learn more about our transformational God.

I love your podcasts, since I started listening to them, the way I sing praise and worship songs has dramatically changed. I now sing with more conviction and power because i now understand the power and authority that is in the words that I’m singing. Thank you so much for your work🙏.
