Twice, circumstances could've ended Colton's Dixon's career. First, his record label dropped him, then Covid halted music tours. To some, this might've seemed like an insurmountable challenge, but when fear, doubts, or anxiety came knocking, Colton reminded himself to keep following God, His light. Because he held tight to the promises of which he sings, potentially devastating circumstances actual let to blessing and expansion. In this episode, Colton shares how his faith in God and practice of speaking declarations over himself have kept him grounded in Christ and committed to his calling.
