Do we understand who we became when we became children of God--God sees us in a greater light than just being forgiven, just being His children, more than being saved, more than being redeemed. He sees us as His spiritual building that He has put together piece by piece, saved by saved, one by one with Jesus Christ as the living Cornerstone.-The foundation of the building is truth. Christ, the cornerstone, is the truth made flesh, the truth lived out.
Trust is tricky. There are multiple levels of it and many different ways it influences our lives. As a personal brand, it's a necessity for people to buy from you. Trust is like a multi-lane highway, not a silo. There are different scenarios of trust Yourself - you trust yourself - a must if you want others to trust you too Others - you trust others and others trust you God - you trust God - God gave you free will, which means he trusts you to discern and make decisions - but wants you to lean on the Holy Spirit as your counselor and guide. Why it's important for you to trust yourself as an entrepreneur. When you trust yourself you will be more confident. When others see that you trust yourself and are confident, they will be more likely to trust you and feel confident that you can help them. On the contrary, if you don't trust yourself, others will be much less likely to trust you. Since trust determines buying practices, it's a necessity for a brand and business to be successful financially.

In today's episode, we will discuss the attribute and qualities of Jochebed, Moses's mother. Through her faith in God, she surrendered her child so that he may one day save their people from the hands of the Egyptians. Faith does not come without fear, but faith gives us the strength to overcome any fear.

By John Bramhall Romans 8:18-30 The doctrinal section of Romans extends from chapter 1 through chapter 8. Two distinct themes are given by the Spirit of God: God's justification of a sinner — Chapter 1 through 5:11. God's deliverance of a saint — 5:12 through 8:39. The last section can be subdivided as follows: Deliverance of a saint from sin's power — 5:12-6:23. Deliverance of a saint from the law — 7:1-8:10. The complete deliverance of a saint from sin's presence — at death or at Rapture by the “redemption of the body” —8:11-30. The blessed conclusion for our eternal praise — 8:31-39. Until final deliverance, the groans of Creation will be heard on every hand, but when the Lord comes, then. https://plymouthbrethren.org/author/29
Human love is a complex thing. It's flawed and imperfect and can often be conditional and damaging to us. But God's love for us is different; it's perfect, absolute, and ever-unconditional. Through Christ, his Son, we have been redeemed and all our sins forgiven when we receive Christ as Lord and Savior. Abiding in the confidence that comes from God's love removes all doubts and fear. It's the only transforming love that will never diminish or come to an end.In this episode of the Revelations Podcast, Delaney Dobbs and Beverly Coniaris of She is Becoming Podcast joins us to speak about God's love. They talk about our role as Christians in speaking His truth and embodying and bringing His love to others. They also differentiate between worldly love and God's love and affirms the power of having confidence in God's love.Tune in now to learn more about what the Scriptures say regarding love. Listen to this episode just for you!Here are three reasons why you should listen to this episode:Understand what 1 John 4:7-19 means.Learn why you should be confident in God's love.Be inspired to love others as God loves us.ResourcesMore from the Revelations Podcast: Website | Instagram | Apple PodcastConnect with Delaney and Beverly: She is BecomingShe is Becoming episode with Reagan Kramer [02:12]S1 | Ep.4 // Children of God (ft. Bev Coniaris)Bible Verses:1 John 4:7-19John 3:161 Corinthians 13:4–8aRevelation1 Corinthians 13John 15:9-12Ephesians 2:4-5Proverbs 10:12This Episode is brought to you by: Advanced Medicine Alternativeshttps://www.georgekramermd.com/Episode Highlights[02:28] She is Becoming PodcastDelaney and Beverly started the podcast because they wanted a multigenerational perspective on different topics in the Bible.They talk about anything and everything related to the Bible.Having a multigenerational perspective is unifying. It's important for the Church and culture.Women want to hear from women of all ages. The older and younger generation have a lot to learn from each other.[05:26] How to Love an Angry CultureYou will feel the angst and anger of people by simply living in the culture.In the episode with Reagan, they talked about how to love with healthy boundaries from Scripture while sharing the gospel and reflecting God.The country has never been so divided. It's the role of God's people to have a different voice and bring people together amidst this.It's our job in the Church to love and to be sure of God's love.[07:33] What Stands Out about Love in 1 John 4:7-19 for Delaney1 John 4 was written to a group of churches believing a Gnostic gospel. The false gospel says that the body and mind are separate and evil, and any emotions that have to do with love and joy must be suppressed.The evidence of a Christian that has been changed by Christ is to love and love well.In the passage, John is encouraging Christians on how to love fellow believers and how to be confident in God's love. He also advocates for Christ's divinity and humanity.1 John 4 says that the love of God was made manifest in us. It's rich in doctrine and theology and is practical at the same time.[09:34] What Stands Out about Love in John 7:19 for BevJohn used love as a test of faith and eternal life.Beverly [10:03]: “One of the fruit[s] of the Spirit, if we have the Spirit of God living in us through faith, is love. So if love is not there, the Spirit may not be there, and we may not be God's child.”John is writing to believers; fellow Christians were to love one another.The emphasis is for our love to be a witness of the world. If that disintegrates in the Church, there's no hope for the world.The people of the Church are the ones who have to bring God's love to others.[11:17] On Not Feeling LovedFeelings trump faith and truth. That's our culture.Feelings come and go; they're unreliable. We can experience an up and down in feeling God's love, similar to our relationships.In this situation, we must first recognize why we doubt God's love. Guilt is a big reason why we feel the need to turn away from God. Other causes are disobedience, other people not loving us, and not knowing the Scriptures.What you have to do when you're doubting is to return to the truth that God loves you and believe it.[15:33] Love is from GodGod is the originator of love. We don't come to God and start loving Him; He starts by loving us.The idea that God has initiated His love for you is a foundational truth you can return to when you don't feel loved.God's love is different from human love. His love is agape love or meeting the needs and caring for the receiver of His love.God's love is sacrificial on behalf of the beloved. The cross is God's demonstration of His love.Similarly, loving one another is setting aside our own selfish needs on behalf of others.[18:46] How God's Love Makes a Difference in Our Everyday LifeHis love enables our love. You can see the impact of God's love with how you love those who are hard to love, even from afar.Love is not a feeling; it's a choice and a commitment. It also manifests in discipline and telling truths and consequences, not just affection.Delaney [24:13]: “You can't experience God's love and not love other people.”Just smile at people. It's a small thing, but it's an act of love.God's love gives us the confidence to love ourselves and other people and speak the truth.Tune in to the full episode to hear more examples of how love makes a difference in our everyday life![32:50] Being Confident in God's LoveBeing confident in God's love means that you don't have to do things to earn it.We can express our love back to Him by obeying Him, living in truth, and living as he loves us.There's nothing we could ever do that would cause God to stop loving us. The way he shows us love is never skewed and is always perfect.We try to find the love God gives in all the wrong places. But the only way we will meet that need for love is in Him.[36:18] What the World says Love isOne thing is that love is love and whatever you want it to be. The root of it is nobody in culture knows how to define love.Desensitization to intimacy has impacted our view of love.We've taken a picture of how God is supposed to love and devalued it.Thinking that love is a way to rationalize sin and put it on a pedestal. But if you don't have a relationship with the Lord, you are not equipped to love.The world's love is all self-love and is the opposite of God's love. God affirms that we are to love ourselves, but it can't be void of Him.[41:45] Justification for SinSuppressing all feelings, such as the premise of the church John was writing to, is also unhealthy.The idea that people could do whatever they want with their bodies because it's not associated with the spirit life is a justification for sin.[44:07] Hurting and Loving Each Other as ChristiansJohn 7:19 speaks about loving each other as Christians.It's easy to want to fight back when you get hurt by other Christians. It's not always the right thing to do.Speaking an honest word can be loving, but it's hard. You don't do anybody a favor by saying nothing when you see something.The huge reason culture is angry is because they don't have confidence in God's love.Having a good theology of God's love on top of living it out can help us live confidently in His love.[48:07] Combating Guilt and ShameSpeaking truth to ourselves in love is how we combat guilt and shame.Believe His word and forgiveness as true. Only then can you move on.We like to punish ourselves. If we don't allow Christ to do it, we will do it on ourselves.Perfect love drives out fear.[49:49] Perfect Love Drives out FearConfidence is the opposite of fear. Being confident in God's love is one of the ways you combat fear. It's God's love that's perfect, not our love. But because of that, we don't have to fear.Having fear is fearing losing God's love. But we don't have to because we're secure with His love.Jesus is our Savior. God is our Father.Bev [53:31]: “He is your father. It's not just a picture. It's truth, and that's why we all have the same Father, that's why we're sisters in Christ. So that's why you get the new family. You have that security that this Father's love is perfect love, and then it will drive out the fear of not being loved.”We have to rely on the love God has for us.[55:11] On PropitiationWe can't love people for doing what we need. The only transforming love is Christ.However, people can reflect God's love for you, and you can experience His love through them.Propitiation is a doctrine. It means that justice is needed and has been met.Christ has taken all of God's disapproval and anger towards our sins as born sinners. Our sins have been propitiated through Christ, and God's wrath is over.When you begin to understand that God's not angry with you, then you can start to accept his love.[58:36] How Delaney & Bev Have Come to Treasure God's LoveOurs is not the beginning or definition of love. The love of Christ is something outside of us; it's something not defined by us and is always. It's how Delaney treasures God's love.God's love helps Bev get out of bed in the morning and go to sleep at night.Life is hard sometimes. God's love gives her peace and a secure place to rest.What God's love meant for Bev personally is mending her relationship with her parents and letting God love through her.[1:01:30] Love Covers a Multitude of SinLove covers all wrongs. Christ's love covered the world's multitude of sins in history.Christ's love gives us more grace and the ability to be more compassionate toward people who are hard to love.Loving someone can help bring people out of their sins. Proverbs 10:12 tells us to be that example and not to be overly critical.The simple act of sharing the gospel is love covering a multitude of sins.About Delaney & BeverlyDelaney Dobbs and Beverly Coniaris are the co-hosts of the She is Becoming Podcast.

Today we come to the fourth and final chapter in the Book of Jonah. It all began when God called Jonah to go preach to Nineveh, and Jonah flatly disobeyed, heading nearly 3,000 miles in the opposite direction aboard a ship to Tarshish. And just when he thought he'd gotten away, God hurled a great storm to stop him in his tracks. Jonah told the sailors to throw him into the sea as a sacrifice to appease the wrath of God. But in His mercy, God rescued Jonah from the watery grave with a great fish that swallowed him whole. And after three days, Jonah finally repents and calls upon the mercy of God. In response, God has the fish vomit Jonah up on the shore and recommissions him to go preach to Nineveh. And this time, Jonah obeys. He cries out judgment against Nineveh and the whole city responds in repentance, crying out to God for mercy. Chapter three ends with this beautiful crescendo: “When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil way, God relented of the disaster that he had said he would do to them, and he did not do it.” What a magnificent moment! A marvelous display of God's mercy! Repentance has come to the city! So, when we turn the page to chapter four, we're expecting triumph. But in fact, what we find is quite the opposite. Instead of applause, we find anger. Instead of rejoicing, there's rejection. Instead of gratitude, we get griping. It's a shocking ending—one of the most shocking in all the Bible—that once again highlights God's unrelenting grace for undeserving people. The Indignation of Jonah: Jonah finds God's grace to be scandalous. Jonah is made because God is acting like Himself, and Jonah can't stand who God is! At his core, Jonah wants a God of karma not grace. See, Jonah hasn't yet fully realized that God's salvation is always by grace alone. Jonah doesn't yet realize that all his righteousness is but filthy rags before a holy God, and that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. Takeaway: Grace is our only hope. The Instruction of the Plant: God gives Jonah space for heart examination. Takeaway: Self-righteousness is deadly. The Intention of God: God invites Jonah to share His heart for the city. Takeaway: Should we not pity this great city? Like Jonah, we have been called to this great city. And at times this city might feel like it's full of enemies: Political enemies. Economic enemies. Moral enemies. How do we share God's heart for this great city? Don't run the other way. Don't call down condemnation. Don't make it “Us vs. Them”. Do serve with sacrificial love. Do speak grace and truth. Do prioritize mission. The most important thing we're called to in this life is to join in the mission of God to redeem this lost world one soul at a time. We're ambassadors for Christ, sent to this great city, and we must keep our focus. Because God is unrelenting in His grace for undeserving people. Jonah 4:1-11

Human beings live within the limits of finite time and space- we cannot pierce those limits and reach God- God must come to us. The gospel is the proclamation that God has indeed come to us, not in wrath, but in reconciliation. The eternal Son became flesh so that we who dwell among the tombs, and terrorized by the darkness, might know true life and true light. And this life and light cannot be overcome by death and darkness. What is more, God deals with us on the basis of grace and truth, and this, too, will never change.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how much peace do you have in your life and career right now? (10 = total peace, 1 = minimal, if any) I'm asking because I look at the conversations and headlines around social media these days and I'm seeing a LACK of peace. Even in the conversations I'm having with people around me…pressure seems to be mounting… At home… In the career… With finances… And all the news around a possible recession and the continued political division isn't helping. So how do you find peace when all you feel is pressure? I lean in to that question on today's episode of the Coming Up Clutch with J.R.™ show. I sit down with Michele Cushatt - 3-time head and neck cancer survivor, 4-time author, and one of the best communicators and leaders I know. If there's anyone who knows a thing or two about navigating seasons where peace isn't present, it's Michele. But here's what else Michele knows - how to stay relentless when the fire around you keeps getting worse. Michele and I get real about the challenges of life that we all face. In this latest episode, Michele and I talk about… How to overcome insurmountable challenges (and God doesn't seem to be around to help) What to do when you feel broken and don't know what to do How to handle moments or seasons that lack peace …and so much more. If you want more peace in your life and career, then lock in to today's episode. [00:01 - 17:08] Introducing Michele to the show Michele's most embarrassing moment Michele's background, story and professional journey [17:09 - 34:50] How to overcome challenges that feel insurmountable and God doesn't seem to be there to help You can deal with anything as long as you know you're not alone (will unpack below) Feeling alone is scarier than your challenges alone Pain at any level is a very loud voice that captures our focus and attention and ends up sabotaging our perspective How to bridge the gap between experiencing pain from your challenge and having faith that God will come through for you We need two elements: Presence - we need to know we're not alone Must wrestle with reality that, “Do I believe God is real, good, and that I can trust Him?” (Deuteronomy 31:8 - never will I leave you, never will I forsake you) Must have presence of others - can't do it alone, especially when we're beyond our own determination Purpose - need to believe that our struggle will not be wasted ...that we'll be able to squeeze meaning and purpose out of it and leverage/repurpose it for something greater than the actual pain itself Part of our growth “EDGE” (and competitive edge) and developing resilience is to learn and understand that this pain could produce results that couldn't be gained any other way (analogies: workouts - can't get results any other way but through pain) Have to make a DECISION: Am I going to be defined and derailed by this challenge? Or developed by it? The mistake people make in their relationships when going through the challenges of life… They don't think they can show up because they feel there's something broken about us, so they hold back, refuse vulnerability, and stay superficial We have to decide if we're going to show up with all of ourselves and our flaws, and take the risk to show up as our flawed self knowing that people connect more with imperfect people than perfect presentations. [34:51 - 39:55] What to do when you feel broken and don't know what to do First step: admit you need help. You can't do it alone and don't have all the answers. You take this step SPIRITUALLY and PRACTICALLY Spiritually Go to God - “God, I can't do this without your divine intervention and help.” This takes humility. Pride is a terrible companion. Practically Go to others - “I need help, and don't know where to begin.” This includes Therapists/Counselors AND Accountability Partners (not YES people!) Second step: Continue being a student - You have to own your own growth. It's no one else's fault or responsibility that you are where you are. [39:56 - 46:45] What the best do when it comes to living and performing optimally How to handle moments or seasons that lack peace The secret to peace is finding eyes to see. Peace requires: A foundational pillar that's bigger and stronger than whatever sits on it - GOD Problem: we try to be the anchor ourselves. A boat anchored to itself is not anchored at all. We need an anchor stronger and bigger that's outside of us to be more secure and have more peace INTERNAL SENSE OF GROUNDEDNESS (not an external ability control) Identity also related here: Must know “Who are we?” “Who do we attach ourselves to as our foundation?” [46:46 - 51:06] Wrapping Up Michele's BIG domino How to connect with Michele KEY QUOTES “We must believe that our struggle won't be wasted.” - Michele Cushatt “During a challenge, you have two choices: Be defined or derailed by it, or be developed by it.” - Michele Cushatt “People don't connect with perfect performances. They connect with real people.” - Michele Cushatt “Pride is a terrible companion.” - Michele Cushatt “You have to own your own growth. It's no one else's fault or responsibility that you are where you are.” - Michele Cushatt “The secret to peace is finding eyes to see.” - Michele Cushatt “Peace comes from an internal sense of groundedness, not an external ability to control.” - Michele Cushatt “The moment you think you've arrived is actually the moment you're lost.” - Michele Cushatt CONNECT WITH MICHELE Twitter: @michelecushatt Instagram: @michelecushatt Facebook: @michelecushatt LinkedIn: /in/michelecushatt Website: www.MicheleCushatt.com Buy Michele's New Book - A Faith That Will Not Fail: 10 Practices to Build Up Your Faith When Your World Is Falling Apart CONNECT WITH J.R.

Welcome to the 11th sermon in our series on the story of Deuteronomy. (11 of 12) If we don't read and understand the Hebrew Scriptures, we won't understand the fullness of God's story. We miss out on His work and activity in history and all that Christ accomplished. The story of Deuteronomy is the story of a God who continues to show mercy and grace to a people who continue to show their desperate need for it. A God who enters into a relationship with a people who could never live up to their end of the bargain. On the brink of the Promised Land, Moses recalls the story of this Covenant between God and His people.
If you are someone who has questions you need answered, who is ready for more clarity & vision, who has big dreams and goals but tends to try to figure them all out on your own- I pray today helps you & gives you the encouragement and strength you need to ASK GOD for help! God is your steadfast companion!
Rev. Mark Loder, pastor of St. James Lutheran Church and School in Howard Lake, MN, joins the Rev. Dr. Phil Booe to study James 4. James here warns his readers against giving into worldly passions. More than that, he reminds them that “whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” (v.4) In yet another chapter chocked full of wisdom from the Apostle, believers are commanded to seek God above all things since no one knows what the next day will bring. But how do we live in this tension: rejecting friendship with the world, yet living in the world and loving others as Christ has loved us? Thy Strong Word dips back into the New Testament for a week only with a careful examination of the Epistle of Saint James. Once called an “epistle of straw” by Martin Luther, many think this meant he thought this letter was not fit for Scripture. Not so! In this brief series, each chapter will be explored to reveal not only how important the Apostle James' inspired message was for the Christians of his day, but how much we need to learn its lessons today.
At the very end of the book of Job, God shows up to talk to Job, who needed an answer to why he had to suffer and endure such unfathomable pain. But spoiler alert: Job never gets an answer.

Michael didn't set out to be a college professor, he just wanted to learn to manage his stress, but this quest led him to not only lower his blood pressure but influence tens of thousands to live a more healthy lifestyle. Episode Discussion PointsLooking younger than you are has pros and cons The diagnosis and curiosity around “meditation” that led to his becoming a professor of stress management, health and wellness. Stress plays a part in high blood pressure Dr. Olpin has learned several tools, including meditation, that help bring out bodies back into balance, and when a body is in balance it can heal. Everyone has more stress than is useful What turns on the stress response Stress makes every health problem worse As stress levels go up, immune function goes down. The impact of losing his older brother to suicide had on him and his journey toward acceptance which included forgiving and letting guilt and negative self-talk go. How God helped him change his thinking so he could work toward peace, and how meditation helped him hear God's spirit speaking to him and guiding him. When he meditates before prayer, his prayers and his ability to listen are exponentially more powerful. How are thoughts are like bees busy buzzing around and meditation calms them and puts them back in the hive. And once they are quiet they can hear inspiration. Studies show that people who meditate frequently can get into the theta and delta levels in their brain (*which usually appear when people are in deep sleep). People who meditate are biologically 12 years younger than their age. Every system in the body breaks down when we are in a stress response (fight or flight) Meditation helps stop the stress response and bring the body back to normal Meditate means to focus—whether it be on a mantra, watching the sunset, a campfire, or the ocean waves rolling in. A Simple Meditation You Can Do Anywhere Put one hand on your chest and try NOT to make your chest or shoulders move as you breathe. Put your other hand on your stomach to help you breathe deep and expand. Breathe in naturally through your nose. Then exhale as slow and soft as you can. Don't worry about how fast or slow you are breathing Simply focus on your breath, and bring your mind back if it wanders (don't get mad at yourself if it does wander). Then move through your body from the top of your head taking each part and relaxing or releasing the muscles with each exhale (ex: inhale, breathe out—relax your eyebrows, inhale, breathe out—relax your cheeks and jaw, inhale, breathe out—release your neck and shoulders, inhale, breathe out—release your arms, then hands, your back…on down to your toes.) This type of breathing is the exact opposite of fight or flight breathing and will automatically calm you down. His goal with his mind body wellness is to help people live at their peak levels. The waves of stress never stop, but we can learn to be peaceful through the waves of life. Favorite Bible VerseProverbs 3:5-6—especially where it says, “Lean not unto thine own understandings.” Don't get cocky. Lean on God and He will steer you in better direction than you could go on your own. Every time Dr. Olpin tries God and His promises things work out for the best. “We can't out-God God.” Dr. Olpin likes to apply this verse every time he presents by saying a prayer before he teaches and asking for God's help to reach His children. And it always goes better.

Richard Hardin's GPWF: Mercy, Grace, Charity Mercy,Grace,& Charity --(Works Of God!) Three of the most important words in the Bible for Christians to understand! ---My Books: Amazon.com/Richard-A-Hardin/e/B09J2YHCVB Weekly: M-F,7-8AM; Sat-Sun,6-8AM (CST) ***It may surprise you but Mercy, Grace, and Charity are not different kinds of Love! They are ways that God Who is Love comes to us and relates with us. For example: The Water that comes to your house from the main city water line is divided up when it gets to your house and goes many different paths; to the bath tub, commodes, to the kitchen sinks, to the refrigerator, to the hot water heater, etc. Now when you have a problem and want to identify it to the plumber you say the commode water won't flush, or the hot water heater is not heating, the bath water will not turn on, and identify to the plumber the area of problem. The water is the same in all these areas. Mercy, Grace and Charity are the same Love of God, but it is God (God is Love) working or moving in different ways to us or thru us but it is the same Spirit of God in all cases because we only have one God and one Spirit of God! ***MERCY is God's Love, God, Himself, coming to us, all mankind, reaching out to us and not requiring us to respond either for or against Him. A one-way love, to try to draw us to Him, guide us, or protect us even before or after we turn to Him like in Rom 2:4, "Or despisest thou the riches of His Goodness and forbearance and long suffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?" God is loving and blessing lost sinners and Christians who have drifted away to draw them back to Him. This is God's "unmerited favor" to all of us when we need it, God Working outside our hearts! ****GRACE is ONLY the work or move of God's Spirit "IN our hearts" to create IN us the new heart at salvation, and "then live IN our hearts forever as as we grow in Grace(His Spirit in us) as His children." The best description of the work of Grace that I have found in the bible is spoken by the Prophet Ezekiel in Eze 36:26-27, "A new heart also will I give you, and a new Spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. (27) And I will put My Spirit within you..." Paul says in Gal: 4:6-7, "And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son "into your hearts", crying, Abba Father(Daddy Father). Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ." Any work or move of God -IN a person's heart only- is what is referred to or called Grace! Any work of God OUTSIDE our hearts to bless us, protect us, etc, is Mercy or Charity. Only the work of God, the Spirit, IN our hearts as a result of us inviting Him into our hearts is a work of Grace! God in any form does not come into our hearts uninvited by us! We have to be in total agreement with God and invite Him in to perform the work of Grace! ****Charity is a work or Word of God to us (Mercy) combined with our willingly inviting His Word (Grace) into our hearts (thru faith our acceptance of His Word) and allowing God to work in and through our hearts (Grace) as we work together with God in a work of Charity to others. ***Our ministers throughout Christianity do not understand Mercy, Grace and Charity or they would not have let the new versions remove Charity. That shows how weak our "Christianity" is that the ministers throughout do not know the foundational building block words of Christianity! How can they understand the deeper concepts and beliefs of Scripture when they do not know the basics? CHARITY is when God moves in a person's heart (Grace) to allow His Spirit to pass through the Christian's heart to go with them to help someone else. The joint effort of God working in & through a person while working together with the person to reach out to others is the work of Charity which the devil hates so much he has had it removed from the new modern Bibles. Also, Charity is the same actions of God working with or in people which is described differently by the Apostle Paul who says "faith that worketh by love" which would be the same as a Christian accepting God's call (Word) into their heart, and obeying God's call to teach, preach, witness etc., and God going and working with the Christian in their heart to confirm His Words thru the Christian to the other person(s) and supply the needs.

When we're in pain or when tragedy has struck, it's natural to ask, "Why?" But, Pastor Mike warns, demanding an answer to that question can be dangerous. Because when we incorrectly answer it or insist on trying to find out why, it can all go wrong. Instead, reading through the book of Job, we discover two truths that help us when we don't know the why's.Get your copy of "When Life Hurts": https://bit.ly/3RzKMQhCheck out our newest video project, Bible Breath With Pastor Jeremy Mattek! https://youtu.be/UWHreTMY788Check out our other podcasts!

Change ~ You are one decision away from a completely different life ~ Change Produces Resilience; Keep Moving Forward Through the Sometimes Messy & ComplicatedChange & the new season is upon us! Autumn is here, and being here in the midwest, leaves are falling, trees are changing colors and pumpkin spice smells are one of my favorites ~ intoxicating!A significant change has occurred for myself and the cubs ~ we have moved! :) Exciting, stressful, I have cried from being exhausted and overwhelmed with everything that needed to be taken care of while teaching and being mom. Mammogram, biopsy, my son had outpatient surgery last Thursday, then his first homecoming was Saturday evening. Our thoughts, when we verbalize them, become real in that moment. Sometimes, we do not say what we want out of fear, because then it becomes real. Then the thoughts come, “you can't do this, why you, how will this happen?” Leave all of that to God ~ God provides the how!We have to remember that change is necessary especially if what we are doing day to day is not serving us well. In order for us to have something different, we must do something different ~ something we have not done before. Again: Change ~ You are one decision away from a completely different life!If you are in need of change, want something different ~ you want to feel healthy, be healthy, feel alive, message me! Reach out to me and let's schedule a session. If you are pretty close to where you want to be, but think, “I need just an hour session to do some tweaking in my plan”, or if you are looking for something more and wanting or need coaching such as an 8 week plan, both are available to you! Message me, email me!Y'all have an amazing day & enjoy this beautiful Autumn weather!

Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” (John 20:29) “even the spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him.

If you appreciate this work, consider supporting it - https://www.patreon.com/seekgodtogether Today we will read Matthew 6:6 which says, “But when you pray, go into your private room, shut your door, and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.” Leave it to Jesus to say a thing perfectly. He never fails to. Here we have from Jesus, the most succinct way to seek God. And honestly the framework for how these times together are organized. Jesus tells us to go into the private room. The closet. The inner space. Close the door, and pray. This makes sense. There's nothing to do in a closet. It's dark, small, alone, and free of distraction. Nothing against praying in your car, office, or on a treadmill. But there's something about the aloneness of the inner room and removing the stimulation of our physical senses. Why? Why is this place special? Because of God - God is secret. The greek word is “krypto” - like cryptic - mysterious - invisible. We don't seek Him the way we seek anything else. He is a mystery sought out mysteriously. How wonderful! For what purpose? Why seek God at all? Jesus tells us. The cryptic, mysterious, and invisible God Who sees cryptically, will reward you! There it is again. Reward. We don't seek God because of anything we can give Him. There's nothing we have that isn't His by nature. You have nothing to give - only to receive. A reward. And yet, there is a thing He doesn't have until you give it. A relationship. God desires, mysteriously so, to have a relationship with you that you willingly enter into. And He lavishes reward and those who do. “Mysterious God, I'm here. I want to know the secret of You. And I want the reward of You. Reward me. Let's get to know each other.” --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
Jennie Guinn, Life Coach at Catholic Moms in the Middle, shares her struggle with shame and unworthiness. For many years these feelings were deeply tied into her battle to lose weight. Jennie realized her weight loss was a spiritual matter that couldn't be fixed with things of the world alone. Jennie began to lose weight as she spent more time in solitude with the Lord and was honest about what was unfolding in her heart. Jennie found an eating program that works great for her and is now close to her weight loss goal. Jennie discoverd the most significant part of her weight loss journey was “losing the weight of the lies she had been telling herself.” Jennie's time of solitude and weight loss has been part of what she calls a “Season of Grace." Jennie has created an acronym for the world "Grace" that reflects her personal journey with God: God's Mercy Rest Awareness Connection Epiphany
