Lifestyle: Eating, Body Image and The Gospel


Here is an article worth reading. Written by Annie Patrick. Amie Patrick is wife to Darrin, lead pastor of The Journey in St. Louis. Married for 20 years, Darrin and Amie have 4 children, ages 3 to 12, and have served in a variety of ministry roles together. Amie holds a degree in music education and is passionate about leadership, teaching women to practically apply the gospel to all areas of their lives, and helping pastors' and church planters’ wives thrive in their calling. This is what she had to say.

Two months into my freshmen year of college, I was forced to admit something had gone terribly wrong with the way I related to food. I'd gained 30 pounds in that short time, double the stereotypical "Freshman 15" some students gain over the course of an entire school year. Deep down I knew my weight gain wasn't only the result of unhealthy cafeteria food or insufficient exercise. I was eating constantly and compulsively for reasons I didn't understand—and I couldn't stop. I felt completely condemned and paralyzed with embarrassment, which I knew wasn't helpful or biblical, but I had no idea how to think otherwise. I was stuck.


I spent the next 20 years seeking to understand a biblical view of my body and of eating, as well as specifically examining how I'd ended up so trapped and confused. I struggled, prayed, immersed myself in Scripture, and repented. I sought out wise counselors, deep community, and biblical resources. I tried all kinds of practical strategies with varying degrees of success. I experienced seasons of freedom and moments of profound despair. I wondered if lasting freedom was even a realistic possibility.

Pastor Jimmy Odukoya (aka Pastor J), pastor of Church 3:16 made a surprise appearance in a segment that could be tagged ‘Ask Your Pastor’, which allowed the audience ask him any question.

It was at this time Pastor J informed the audience that he will be releasing a new single with Gaise, titled 'Bigger Than You'. He also stated that his album had been ready for a while. In his words "I am waiting for d right time before releasing it.

And another BIG surprise - Obiwon! The music minister shared his testimony of ‘porting’ from secular to gospel music, which was quite inspiring. He followed it up with a performance of his single 'Testify' making another highpoint of the unique event.

Praiseworld Unplugged also witnessed many artistes in attendance such as Provabs, Protek, Sokleva of Rooftop MCs, Okeysokay, Psalmos, CIA, Gaise, amongst others.

Deitrick Haddon Finally Releases New Album R.E.D [Review]



Deitrick Haddon has released his sixth album R.E.D (Restoring Everything Damaged) with his current label (RCA Inspiration, formerly Verity Records). This is the 12th album of the singer’s career.

Haddon describes R.E.D. as transparent, bold, and real!

Here is a track by track guide published by www.atlantadailyworld.com to what will be defined as one of the most transparent albums to ever hit gospel music.

R.E.D. Interlude – A honest look at headlines, descriptions and all critiques of Deitrick.

Paint It All Red – This track is a prayer plea. The harmony of “everything in my life I paint it all red.” Deitrick lays it out in the open, with no sweetener. At first listen you flinch at the brutal honesty of the song. He details all that he has done and faced.

Feel A Breakthrough – A great sound system track.

Victory – A 1980′s Prince like jam that makes you want to dance.

God at Work (Destin Monet Haddon) – This is your sit in the car and hum. It’s guaranteed small children will be singing it.

Say A Little Prayer – This is the blues track and will make any blues singer happy. You can hear shades of Al Green. It reminds me of “Love and Happiness”.

You’re With Me – This is the love song that makes you throw your hands up and say, “Amen!” It’s a song of a sinner who feels left and bereft of everything except the Lord. When Deitrick sings the words “Lord.. I have no doubt that you are with me.” You hear the raw honesty in it.

Handles This – The song opens up with the lyrics ,,”I was just a good man in an awkward position.” It is a thought provoker.

New Music: Flo - Bragadaba (Download)


Flo has just released yet another hit song. A beautiful high tempo dance song of thanksgiving. “You can never go wrong with a spirit of thanksgiving. Download my latest single ‘BRAGADABA’ and show of your maker”  - Flo
Enjoy!

Steeped in elements of eastern Nigerian highlife, Na Why You Love Me So, is an inspiring departure from what you would expect from NOSA. The song breathes the gyrating, up tempo music that one could hear on the streets of Owerri or other parts of Nigeria’s east.


And as is common with his style of music, Nosa flirts with the notion of love in its purest form; its ability to forgive and not keep record of wrongs. If you are looking out for music for the soul, “Why You Love Me” delivers to you a perfect answer to your prayers.
