God’s Language is Universal

Karen Harding

In the last few years I’ve traveled to a lot of places. Thailand, South Africa and most recently The Netherlands.  When I would speak they used an interpreter to translate what I was saying into Dutch. It was a wonderful experience.  After a service, at one of the churches where I had ministered, two  ladies began to pray over me.  They were praying in Dutch.  I had no idea what they were saying, but, I could feel what they were saying!  God’s presence can be felt even when you don’t understand.  God’s language is Universal!  When His love is shared and transferred to another, in the Body of Christ, it is felt and understood.  That was a powerful experience for me.

Just the same, we may not understand things we are going through.  We may not understand what God is saying, but we can feel that He is working on our behalf!!! You don’t always have to know how He’s working or what it all means, but you can understand His love for you.  You can feel it!  It’s tangible.  Just blindly trust that He is on your side! It reminds me of a great Hymn…”Many things about tomorrow, I don’t seem to understand, but I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand!” God’s language is Universal.  Anybody can understand His love.  You can feel it and know it! It speaks when we do not understand!

Can somebody say “Amen”?  Blessings!

Formed over 19 years ago by Deon & Susan Unthank originally as, the site was birthed from an email discussion group by the same name. The SoGospelNews email discussion list was created by the Unthanks after the Singing News shut down its extremely popular discussion list. SoGospelNews started as a simple webpage listing artists, fans, individuals, etc. that were avid supporters of the newly formed SoGospelNews talk list. The site eventually took on printing news for Southern Gospel artists, and eventually took on reviewing the latest recordings from both signed and independent artists within the small genre. SoGospelNews became the most viewed Southern Gospel website on the Internet with over 4,000,000 hits per month.

The Unthank family are now involved in the site, as well as the addition of over two dozen staff writers. The website is based out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. In April 2010, SoGospelNews changed its name to The name change allows them to cover news items of not only Southern Gospel, but also Country Gospel, Inspirational, and Black Gospel.

On January 5, 2011, Susan Unthank passed away, leaving the website in control of Deon, their son, Chris, and their daughter Amy.
