When You Belong to Christ, Podcast #704

When You Belong to Christ {Podcast #704}

If all your thoughts on any given day were recorded and transcribed, how would it read? More importantly, how would those thoughts line up with Scripture? Would you be able to flip open your Bible and say, “Yep, this is a truth!” or would you more likely struggle to find a biblical principle that supports that way of thinking? With as much time as I spend teaching the Word, it really is amazing how often I find my thoughts filled with shame messages shaping a twisted perspective about who I am in Christ and how God’s promises are as true…

What I Wish I Knew When {Podcast #703}

Have you ever said, “if only I could go back and tell myself ______”? Or thought to yourself, “If only I had known!”? Well, you’re not alone, sister. Far too often we find ourselves wondering if things would be different today if we had made different choices twenty years ago. We see our children, grandchildren, nieces, and nephews growing up and wishing we could shake them into not making the same mistakes that we did.

Learning to Thrive {Podcast #702}

Between the state of the world amidst COVID and all the turmoil in politics, the culture, and the economy, it is no surprise. But sister, there is another way to live, even when everything around…

Turning to check my rearview mirror, I felt an ever-so-familiar twinge in my back and feared a spasm that would take me down for a day or two. Instead, life came to a screeching halt with doctor’s orders for complete rest. I was in too much pain to resist and I sensed a divine appointment as I remembered a verse I had recently read in Isaiah: “Only in returning to me  and resting in me will you be saved. In quietness and confidence is your strength.  But you would have none of it.” (Isaiah 30:15, CSB) I did not want to…

No Substitutions: God is Enough

No Substitutes: Because God is Enough

Have you ever embraced a sugar fast? Or maybe a social media fast? If so, have you noticed how often your fast from __________ results in a series of substitutions rather than single-hearted focused on Jesus? I saw this play out so profoundly in my most recent sugar fast. Instead of that piece of chocolate after lunch, I grab a clementine. Sure, it’s healthy, but it is a substitute for a sweet fix. By 3 pm, when I’m craving an afternoon cookie, I turn to a gluten-free granola bar. It may not be as scrumptious, but it seems to work…
