Podcast #94: “Just a Girl” by Brandon Heath

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

How often have we missed the miracle because there was “no room” for the inconvenience? The birth of Jesus was messy, loud, and inconvenient, and yet some embraced it, and some, like the innkeeper sung about in Brandon Heath’s song, “Just a Girl,” missed out on welcoming the Savior of the World.


How many miracles have we missed because we said “no” out of inconvenience?

In this episode, I discuss the following:

  • Traditions – how my family loves them and how God instituted them
  • The perspective of this week’s song as being sung by the innkeeper in the Christmas story
  • What Scripture really says about the inn – Luke 2:1-7
  • A quote from Brandon Heath on his perspective of the song – New Release Today Article
  • How it was inconvenient for those in the inn to make room for Mary to have a baby
  • What parts of God’s plan for Mary’s life were inconvenient – Luke 1:28-38
  • How Joseph threw aside inconvenience to accept God’s command – Matthew 1:18-25
  • The inconvenience Jesus endured by leaving heaven to be born a human to save us from sin – Philippians 2:6-8
  • The Parable of the Good Samaritan – Luke 10:30-37
  • Matthew Henry’s Commentary on how “selfishness governs all ranks”
  • A prayer to be wholly yielded to God even if it means messy, loud, and inconvenient

Enjoy the official lyric video below.

This Week’s Challenge

Dive into the Christmas story! Read Matthew 1 and 2 and Luke 1 and 2 for all of the epic details. Consider what messy, loud, and inconvenient experiences God is asking you to yield to. Consider the parable in Luke 10:30-37 and, in Jesus’ words, “Now go and do the same.”
