Confession time: I have fought with people I love because I believe I know better and want to prove my point.
Jeremy Camp’s new album softened my stubborn soul and reminded me Jesus is The Answer and My Defender. Those are two of song titles and they remind me I don’t have to defend anything in my life that’s built upon my faith in Jesus, who is the true, unchanging answer to any of life’s questions.
“I know the answer, to every question
The one solution, to every fear
I know my helper, where it goes from
Jesus, He is the answer …”
– Jeremy Camp in “The Answer”
“You’re my defender
You fight for me
I will remember
You’re all I need
You are my healer
Against the power of the unknown
And I will not stand alone
‘Cause You’re my defender …”
– Jeremy Camp in “My Defender”
There you go.
Jesus will fight for me because He’s
my helper, healer, answer, and defender.
What a relief, really. Now, I hope I just remember these songs when I want to waste time proving my own point that probably doesn’t really matter anyway.
I also really like the songs “Never Stopped Loving” and “Carriers.” Truthfully, this whole CD is one my kids can expect to play in the minivan as we go about our everyday lives because it’s catchy and packed with the truth we all need to hear.

Lisa notes says
Me, too: “Confession time: I have fought with people I love because I believe I know better and want to prove my point.” Such futility in this! But I continue to mess up and do it too often. Praying it decreases more and more. Maybe I need some more Jeremy Camp myself. 🙂
Such futility! Thanks to stopping by, Lisa, even though I didn’t have my #PorchStories act together this week. 🙂
I’m listening to a lot of Tenth Avenue North, Kari Jobe, and Bethel. Thank you for the review – this looks like a good one!
Glad you entered!
