Josh Turner Reveals His True Heart And Character
FaithTap Staff 4/18/2019
We hear the word "faith" mentioned in a lot of situations. When things are not looking good, "Just have faith- everything will be okay!" Or when things turn around for the better, "I'm glad I kept my faith, look where it got me!" And when people remain positive despite the hardships in life, they'll tell you they're still strong because they have faith,
Christians encounter the word "faith" a lot in scriptures, sermons, and other stories. Hebrew 11:1 writes: "Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see." It's a testament of how faith can move us to act on something that isn't there yet - similar to how the Bible asks us to put our trust God no matter how difficult the situation is. Singer Josh Turner is one who understands the power of faith. Learn more about his touching story below.
After more than two decades in the industry, Josh Turner has done it all. He's performed at the Grand Ole Opry, earned a number of Country Music Award Nominations and toured across the country. In 2001, he released "Long Black Train", a track that would propel him to country music stardom.
He became country music's fast-rising star and was quickly winning hearts all over the world. However, it wasn't all sunshine and rainbows. Like all of us, he experienced a number of curveballs that threw him off the path. But if there was one thing that Josh armed himself throughout his life's journey, it was his unwavering faith in God.
In an interview with "I Am Second", Josh was candid about the "spiritual battles" he faced throughout his life. He shared about a vocal injury back in 1996, his battle with spinal stenosis, and a serious injury that broke his jaw. Josh went on to say that he continued to fight for his dreams and ambitions despite it all. He adds that it's difficult knowing that not all of them can be achieved. But whatever void that creates, it can be easily filled with Jesus.
Another unforgettable moment from Josh's interview when he shared about his trip to the Sea of Galilee. He felt a deep connection with God and on where his career should go next. He felt God then spoke to him and told the country singer that He'll be there to guide him and make sure he makes a positive impact on people's lives. Sure enough, that's exactly what Josh achieved.
