“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done.” 1 Chronicles 16:8
In 1997, a television episode aired that supposedly created a new cultural phrase, yada yada. Made popular by Seinfield, this new phrase came to mean boring or empty talk. But few people realize that this word had a different meaning and originated thousands of years ago.
Yada is actually the Hebrew word for “praise and thanksgiving” or “to know” in the sense of a relationship, like what the Lord desires to have with his people.
So the women of First Baptist Dallas have decided to accept the call to redeem this cultural term. Too often we allow culture to take what God says is good and twist the meaning. We are reclaiming yada yada.
So for the purposes of this blog, we will share our stories, the broken parts, the beautiful stories, the funny moments, and the life experiences for the purpose of praise. May you discover the love of the God who created you in our voices. We don’t claim to know the answers. But we can point you to the One who does.
So, yada yada, dear friends. May our voices bring Him praise. Will you join us on this journey?
