Welcome back to the Lighthouse Podcast! In this episode, Chris and & Christy had the honor of speaking with Christy Owens. She is married to her husband, Ira, and they have three children, Grace, Noah & Jonas. Christy's son Jonas was diagnosed with Pre-B-Cell Leukemia at 16 months old. She opens up about the initial struggles of his diagnosis, treatment, and the uncertainties that plagued her family throughout their three-year journey. Christy shares a pivotal moment when she learned to focus on the present rather than fearfully anticipating the future. She found strength and trust in God's goodness, learning to focus on the present rather than anxiously worrying about the future. As Christy immersed herself in a supportive Facebook group titled Christian Parents of Kids with Cancer, she found solace, encouragement, and a platform to express her emotions through writing and sharing bible verses. Eventually, the Facebook page was given to Christy, and this space has become a sacred place for mothers to find strength, support, and spiritual nourishment. Discover the power of coming together and serving one another through the love of Christ amidst life's most difficult trials. During the conversation, Christy mentioned a group study on the book The Hiding Place. The group study will be held via Zoom starting on June 12th on Wednesdays at 6pm - 7pm (Pacific Time)/9pm - 10pm (Eastern Time).

Living It Out with Pastor David Maestas
In this powerful sermon, Pastor David Maestas delves into the idea of trust and obedience found in Luke 9:1-17. Despite the challenges and dangers the disciples faced, they continued to put their trust in Jesus. Pastor David emphasizes the importance of trusting in God's guidance, even when it may seem uncertain or difficult, and challenges us to examine our own lives and consider whether we are truly following God's leading, or just following the crowd like sheep. Through this sermon, we are reminded that when we trust in God and follow His will, He can work miracles in our lives beyond what we could ever imagine.

435 - Heidi & Guy MItchell Podcast Number: 435Podcast Release Date: 05/16/23Podcast Description Heidi and Guy Mitchell, my guests on this episode of The Thriving Christian Artist, have a very unique place in God's kingdom. They have heard God's call together as a couple, and it has led them to combine their gifts in music and art into something very special. Their journey certainly hasn't always been easy. In obedience to God's word, they gave up their other successful endeavors to create their art in His name.

Now their faithfulness has allowed them to share what God has given them, including His prophetic word, all over the world! So take a listen to this episode, hear their incredible story, and see how one's obedience to God can have a ripple effect that spreads His glory farther than you can possibly imagine.

We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen. The InvitatoryLord, open our lips.And our mouth shall proclaim your praise.Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen. Pascha Nostrum (Christ our Passover)Alleluia. The Lord is risen indeed:Come let us adore him. Alleluia.Alleluia. Christ our Passover has been sacrificed for us; *therefore let us keep the feast,Not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, *but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; *death no longer has dominion over him.The death that he died, he died to sin, once for all; *but the life he lives, he lives to God.So also consider yourselves dead to sin, *and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia.Christ has been raised from the dead, *the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.For since by a man came death, *by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead.For as in Adam all die, *so also in Christ shall all be made alive. Alleluia.Alleluia. The Lord is risen indeed:Come let us adore him. Alleluia. The PsalterPsalm 78:1-39Part IAttendite, popule1Hear my teaching, O my people; *incline your ears to the words of my mouth.2I will open my mouth in a parable; *I will declare the mysteries of ancient times.3That which we have heard and known,and what our forefathers have told us, *we will not hide from their children.4We will recount to generations to comethe praiseworthy deeds and the power of the Lord, *and the wonderful works he has done.5He gave his decrees to Jacoband established a law for Israel, *which he commanded them to teach their children;6That the generations to come might know,and the children yet unborn; *that they in their turn might tell it to their children;7So that they might put their trust in God, *and not forget the deeds of God,but keep his commandments;8And not be like their forefathers,a stubborn and rebellious generation, *a generation whose heart was not steadfast,and whose spirit was not faithful to God.9The people of Ephraim, armed with the bow, *turned back in the day of battle;10They did not keep the covenant of God, *and refused to walk in his law;11They forgot what he had done, *and the wonders he had shown them.12He worked marvels in the sight of their forefathers, *in the land of Egypt, in the field of Zoan.13He split open the sea and let them pass through; *he made the waters stand up like walls.14He led them with a cloud by day, *and all the night through with a glow of fire.15He split the hard rocks in the wilderness *and gave them drink as from the great deep.16He brought streams out of the cliff, *and the waters gushed out like rivers.17But they went on sinning against him, *rebelling in the desert against the Most High.18They tested God in their hearts, *demanding food for their craving.19They railed against God and said, *“Can God set a table in the wilderness?20True, he struck the rock, the waters gushed out, and the gullies overflowed; *but is he able to give breador to provide meat for his people?”21When the Lord heard this, he was full of wrath; *a fire was kindled against Jacob,and his anger mounted against Israel;22For they had no faith in God, *nor did they put their trust in his saving power.23So he commanded the clouds above *and opened the doors of heaven.24He rained down manna upon them to eat *and gave them grain from heaven.25So mortals ate the bread of angels; *he provided for them food enough.26He caused the east wind to blow in the heavens *and led out the south wind by his might.27He rained down flesh upon them like dust *and wingèd birds like the sand of the sea.28He let it fall in the midst of their camp *and round about their dwellings.29So they ate and were well filled, *for he gave them what they craved.30But they did not stop their craving, *though the food was still in their mouths.31So God's anger mounted against them; *he slew their strongest menand laid low the youth of Israel.32In spite of all this, they went on sinning *and had no faith in his wonderful works.33So he brought their days to an end like a breath *and their years in sudden terror.34Whenever he slew them, they would seek him, *and repent, and diligently search for God.35They would remember that God was their rock, *and the Most High God their redeemer.36But they flattered him with their mouths *and lied to him with their tongues.37Their heart was not steadfast toward him, *and they were not faithful to his covenant.38But he was so merciful that he forgave their sinsand did not destroy them; *many times he held back his angerand did not permit his wrath to be roused.39For he remembered that they were but flesh, *a breath that goes forth and does not return. Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen. LessonsDeuteronomy 8:11-2011 “Take care lest you forget the Lord your God by not keeping his commandments and his rules and his statutes, which I command you today, 12 lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, 13 and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, 14 then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery, 15 who led you through the great and terrifying wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, who brought you water out of the flinty rock, 16 who fed you in the wilderness with manna that your fathers did not know, that he might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end. 17 Beware lest you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.' 18 You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day. 19 And if you forget the Lord your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish. 20 Like the nations that the Lord makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the Lord your God. James 1:16-2716 Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. 18 Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.19 Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. 21 Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. 24 For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. 25 But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing.26 If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless. 27 Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.The Word of the Lord.Thanks Be To God. Cantemus Domino (The Song of Moses)I will sing to the Lord, for he is lofty and uplifted; *the horse and its rider has he hurled into the sea.The Lord is my strength and my refuge; *the Lord has become my Savior.This is my God and I will praise him, *the God of my people and I will exalt him.The Lord is a mighty warrior; *Yahweh is his Name.The chariots of Pharaoh and his army has he hurled into the sea; *the finest of those who bear armor have been drowned in the Red Sea.The fathomless deep has overwhelmed them; *they sank into the depths like a stone.Your right hand, O Lord, is glorious in might; *your right hand, O Lord, has overthrown the enemy.Who can be compared with you, O Lord, among the gods? *who is like you, glorious in holiness,awesome in renown, and worker of wonders?You stretched forth your right hand; *the earth swallowed them up.With your constant love you led the people you redeemed; *with your might you brought them in safety to your holy dwelling.You will bring them in and plant them *on the mount of your possession,The resting-place you have made for yourself, O Lord, *the sanctuary, O Lord, that your hand has established.The Lord shall reign *for ever and for ever.Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. The Apostles CreedI believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen. The PrayersLord, have mercy.Christ, have mercyLord, have mercyOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever and ever. Amen. The SuffragesO Lord, show your mercy upon us;And grant us your salvation.O Lord, guide those who govern usAnd lead us in the way of justice and truth.Clothe your ministers with righteousnessAnd let your people sing with joy.O Lord, save your peopleAnd bless your inheritance.Give peace in our time, O LordAnd defend us by your mighty power.Let not the needy, O Lord, be forgottenNor the hope of the poor be taken away.Create in us clean hearts, O GodAnd take not your Holy Spirit from us. Take a moment of silence at this time to reflect and pray for others. The CollectsThe Sixth Week of EasterO God, you have prepared for those who love you such good things as surpass our understanding: Pour into our hearts such love towards you, that we, loving you in all things and above all things, may obtain your promises, which exceed all that we can desire; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. Daily Collects:A Collect for PeaceO God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is perfect freedom: Defend us, your humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries, through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.A Collect for GraceO Lord, our heavenly Father, almighty and everlasting God, you have brought us safely to the beginning of this day: Defend us by your mighty power, that we may not fall into sin nor run into any danger; and that, guided by your Spirit, we may do what is righteous in your sight; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.Prayer for MissionAlmighty and everlasting God, who alone works great marvels: Send down upon our clergy and the congregations committed to their charge the life-giving Spirit of your grace, shower them with the continual dew of your blessing, and ignite in them a zealous love of your Gospel; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. General ThanksgivingAlmighty God, Father of all mercies, we your unworthy servants give you humble thanks for all your goodness and loving-kindness to us and to all whom you have made. We bless you for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of this life; but above all for your immeasurable love in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory. And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies, that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth your praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up our selves to your service, and by walking before you in holiness and righteousness all our days; Through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen. A Prayer of St. John ChrysostomAlmighty God, you have given us grace at this time, with one accord to make our common supplications to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will grant their requests: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting. Amen. DismissalLet us bless the LordThanks be to God!Alleluia, Alleluia! BenedictionThe grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us all evermore.

And visit our website some videos are exclusively accessible on the websiteTheCrewBookClub.com Introduction: PG. 5-7 “Mountains are often less a challenge in front of us as it is a problem within us, an unstable foundation that might not seem, evident on the surface but is nonetheless shifting almost every part of our lives.” Different Types of Mountains: Erosion Mountains: This occurs during and after an uplift, where a newly formed mountainous region is subjected to the effects of wind, water, ice, and gravity. These forces actively shape the surface of mountain ranges, wearing down the exposed surfaces, depositing sediment in alluvial flows, and forming characteristic landforms. Block mountains: are caused by faults in the crust, a seam where rocks can move past each other. Also known as rifting, this process occurs when rocks on one side of a fault rise relative to the other. Volcanic mountains- are formed when a tectonic plate is pushed beneath another (or above a mid-ocean ridge or hotspot) where magma is forced to the surface fold mountains- occur when two tectonic plates collide at a convergent plate boundary, causing the crust to over thicken. Chapter 1: The Mountain Is You Pg.11 What is self-sabotage? The term self-sabotage is used when this destructive behavior is directed at yourself. At first, you may not even notice that you're doing it. But when negative habits consistently undermine your efforts, they can be considered a form of psychological self-harm. How to overcome? Pg. 11 Pg. 12 Self-sabotage is a coping mechanism Pg. 17 Self-Sabotage comes from what's unfamiliar. Please listen very closely: “We are programmed to seek what we've known. Even though we think we're after happiness, we're trying to find whatever we're most used to.” That leads to how self-sabotage comes from pg. 19 “Your limiting beliefs might come from wanting to keep yourself safe.” Pg. 26 “Your new life is going to cost you your old one.” The challenge of the week Get out of denial. Pg. 20-22 “You must first and foremost get out of denial and into clarity about what's wrong. At this point, you have a choice. You can make peace, or you can commit to changing. The lingering is what is keeping you stuck.” What Would Crew Do?! (ask for advice) email the crew @ firstname.lastname@example.org or DM on IG @thecrewbookclub What did you think about the Eboni K. Williams Comment? I am late to answer this question and here you go. Quote of the week: pg. 8 “Your old self can no longer sustain the life you are trying to lead; it is time for reinvention and rebirth.” Pg. 18 “What you believe about your life is what you will make true about your life.” Thanks for hanging with The Crew
Today on Transcendent Leadership, I equip you with five steps to cultivate your relationship with God and give you the tools to overcome your inner conflict with ego and intuition. I realized that I was bulldozing my way through life, unable to trust my gut and connect with God. The need to control every aspect of life separates you from the divine gifts designed for you. Once you surrender control to a higher power, life gets easier. Faith is the foundation of your relationship with the creator. Life will always unfold in your favor if you learn to listen to your intuition and trust in God. I teach you how to overcome decision fatigue by allowing God to guide you instead of managing life on your own. With God on your side, you can have a more organic impact on the world as a transcendent leader. As you develop your relationship with a higher power, you will feel a shift in your energy. Your capacity will increase, and it will become easier to reject the things not in alignment with your higher self. If you are willing and ready to accept guidance from a higher power, listen now!

I could no longer push or force. Every time I went to do something that was, maybe a little bit out of alignment, I was like no, I physically can't do it!” [11:58] -Carissa Johnsen “From that moment I made a decision, that I could not do it alone. From a physical standpoint, I physically could not carry what I was carrying anymore, so there was an invitation to lean on more friends and family and not have the lone wolf syndrome anymore, but there was also an invitation to recognize the power that is within me, because of who created me.” [15:00] -Carissa Johnsen
Pray the Word with David Platt
In this episode of Pray the Word on Psalm 64:10, David Platt teaches us to trust in God and to respond with grace when people sin against us.
The Bible in a Year (with Fr. Mike Schmitz)
Fr. Mike focuses on trust today, specifically trusting God in difficult times. Like David, we need to learn to trust God in the midst of the battle, not wait until it's over. Today's readings are 2 Samuel 15, 1 Chronicles 19-20, and Psalm 3. For the complete reading plan, visit ascensionpress.com/bibleinayear.

Also, make sure to check out Katie and Jake's youtube series @ChattingWithTheChurches SHOW NOTES/REFERENCES: Trusting God in the ups & downs In what areas do we still struggle to trust God? Anxiety & worry —> indicates a lack of trust in God or fear of loss/change. What is the root cause of our fear or worry? Gotquestions.org: The main reason we should trust God is that He is worthy of our trust. Unlike men, He never lies and never fails to fulfill His promises. “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” (Numbers 23:19; Psalm 89:34). We can learn to trust God as we see him working in our lives & the lives of others around us. When has God been faithful in our lives previously? Why do we doubt him moving forward? Gotquestions.org: Should we trust in ourselves or in others who are sinful, unpredictable, unreliable, have limited wisdom, and frequently make bad choices and decisions swayed by emotion? Or do we trust in the all-wise, all-knowing, all-powerful, gracious, merciful, loving God who has good intentions for us? The choice should be obvious, but we fail to trust God because we don't know Him. As already stated, we cannot hope to trust in someone who is essentially a stranger to us, but that is easily remedied. God has not made Himself difficult to find or know. All we need to know about God, He has graciously made available to us in the Bible, His holy Word to His people. To know God is to trust Him. Reflect on his sovereignty Verses: “All the peoples of the earth are regarded as nothing. He does as he pleases with the powers of heaven and the peoples of the earth. No one can hold back his hand or say to him: ‘What have you done?'” Daniel 4:35 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5 “For this is the will of God, by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but as servants of God. 1 Peter 2:15–16 “All things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” Romans 8:28 Pod Notes: Lex “Abraham never wavered in believing God's promise. In fact, his faith grew stronger, and in this, he brought glory to God. He was fully convinced that God is able to do whatever he promises.” Romans 4:20-21 NLT In what areas of my life do I trust God the least? Do I truly believe the Lord is all I need? Do I believe He will provide everything I need? There are a ton of references in the Bible about not worrying or being fearful. Why? Because God knows our tendency as humans is to doubt. We have to remember that God knows the future, He holds it in his hands. “But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.” – James 1:6 God knows the desires of our hearts. But we must be reminded that He knows what's best for us. Faith & trust go hand in hand. “Our trust is not foolish, for our God is both faithful and good.” -Grand Canyon Univ Blog “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight” – Proverbs 3:5-6 --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/thefreedompodcast/message Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/thefreedompodcast/support

Unlocked: Daily Devotions for Teens
Do you have a favorite place to think or pray? I do. Most mornings I grab my coffee and head to the back porch. There, I meet with God in prayer, asking to be led by His Spirit and asking for grace to face the day. This is one way He brings me comfort. Along with prayer, Scripture reveals other ways we can know Christ's comfort..First, we have God's people. Scripture teaches believers that we “belong to each other” (Romans 12:5) and make up the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12:27). Thus, we can say that God is present, comforting believers through one another (2 Corinthians 1:3-7)..Second, we find comfort in God's Word. John 1 teaches that Christ is the Word made flesh who has “revealed God to us” (verse 18). What an unfathomable comfort. And Hebrews 4:12 tells us that the Word is “sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword... It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” Because of this, we can take comfort in being fully known and completely loved by Christ—He is the Word of God who has come to us..Third, we have God's promises. His final word on suffering declares two things. One, evil and pain will be hijacked (transformed and remade) into good (Romans 8:17-39). And two, every wrong will be made right: “‘I will pay them back,' says the Lord” (Romans 12:19). So, we can give all our desire for vengeance to God, who will ensure justice prevails at Jesus's return. When this happens, all will be made new. “There will be no more death or sorrow... or pain. All these things are gone forever” (Revelation 21:3-4). When Jesus returns, we will celebrate with joy as we are made whole by the presence of God. And we will enjoy the unceasing comfort of Christ forever. • G. Kam Congleton.• Although Scripture doesn't explain why evil and suffering exist, we know suffering entered our world when sin entered it (Genesis 3). And we know that in the end, God's goodness and justice will triumph. In the meantime, when we experience pain, we can ultimately trust in God's love, demonstrated visibly in the person of Jesus, as Romans 8:39 says, “indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.” If you want to dig deeper into the topic of suffering, consider reading through one of the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke or John), and ask God to help you see His love made visible in the life and sacrifice of Jesus.....God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5b (NLT)

Welcome to the Spark Influence Podcast, where we explore the power of positive influence in our daily lives. I'm Misty Phillip and today, I want to encourage my fellow moms. Today I'm flying solo because I want to be discuss the importance of biblical motherhood and the impact it can have on our families and communities. Motherhood is an incredible journey, full of joys and challenges. It's a journey that requires patience, love, and sacrifice. As we navigate this path, it can be easy to get caught up in the daily grind and lose sight of the bigger picture. But when we look to the Bible for guidance, we can find wisdom and encouragement to help us on this journey. Proverbs 31:10-31 The Woman Who Fears the Lord 10 [d] An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.11 The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain.12 She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.13 She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands.14 She is like the ships of the merchant; she brings her food from afar.15 She rises while it is yet night and provides food for her household and portions for her maidens.16 She considers a field and buys it; with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.17 She dresses herself[e] with strength and makes her arms strong.18 She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night.19 She puts her hands to the distaff, and her hands hold the spindle.20 She opens her hand to the poor and reaches out her hands to the needy.21 She is not afraid of snow for her household, for all her household are clothed in scarlet.[f]22 She makes bed coverings for herself; her clothing is fine linen and purple.23 Her husband is known in the gates when he sits among the elders of the land.24 She makes linen garments and sells them; she delivers sashes to the merchant.25 Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.26 She opens her mouth with wisdom, and the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.27 She looks well to the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.28 Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her:29 “Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”30 Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates. Proverbs 31 is a beautiful passage that describes the qualities of a virtuous woman. This woman is a wife and a mother, and she is praised for her hard work, her wisdom, and her kindness. She is a woman who fears the Lord, and her children rise up and call her blessed. As mothers, we can learn a lot from this passage. We can strive to be women of integrity, who work hard to provide for our families and create a loving home environment. We can seek wisdom from the Lord and ask Him to guide us as we raise our children. Biblical Examples of Strong Moms As we study the Bible we find countless examples of strong and faithful mothers who raised children who went on to do great things. One such example is Jochebed, the mother of Moses. She was a Hebrew woman living in Egypt during a time when Pharaoh had ordered all Hebrew baby boys to be killed. But Jochebed refused to give up on her son and placed him in a basket in the Nile River, trusting that God would protect him. Jochebed Through God's grace, Moses was rescued by Pharaoh's daughter and grew up to become a great leader of the Israelites, leading them out of slavery in Egypt. Jochebed's faith and determination remind us that even in the face of difficult circumstances, God can work miracles through the love and dedication of a mother. Hannah Another example is Hannah, the mother of Samuel. Hannah was unable to have children, and she prayed fervently to God for a son. When God blessed her with Samuel, she dedicated him to God's service and raised him to be a faithful prophet. Hannah's story shows us that even when we face disappointment or hardship, we can turn to God in prayer and trust that He has a plan for our lives and our children's lives. As mothers, we can learn so much from these biblical examples. We can be encouraged that our efforts in raising our children in the ways of the Lord can have a lasting impact. We can trust that God is with us every step of the way and that He will equip us with everything we need to be the best mothers we can be. Modeling the Christian Life One of the most important things we can do as mothers is to model a life of faith for our children. We can teach them about God's love and grace, and show them what it means to live a life that honors Him. We can pray for our children and ask God to protect them and guide them on their own faith journeys. We can read, study, and memorize scripture together. Motherhood both challenging and rewarding! Motherhood can be challenging, but it's also one of the most rewarding roles we can have in life. When we embrace biblical motherhood, we can experience the joy of seeing our children grow and thrive, and we can make a positive impact on our families and communities. Mom your work is valuable, your love is powerful, and your influence is eternal. Keep pressing on, and trust in God's grace to guide you through every moment of motherhood. Verses that have encouraged me in my motherhood journey I want to share a few scriptures that have encouraged me in my motherhood journey. Proverbs 22:6 ESV "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." 3 John 4 ESV says, "I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth." Hebrews 12:1 ESV "Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us" Galatians 6:9 ESV -"And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up." So, to all the mothers out there listening today, I want to encourage you to keep pressing on. Remember that you are loved and valued by God, and that He has entrusted you with the incredible responsibility of raising your children. Seek His guidance and wisdom, and trust Him to help you on this journey. Thank you for tuning in to the Spark Influence Podcast. Join us next time as we continue to explore the power of positive influence in our lives.

If you have know the Lord for a while, you understand that God's time is usually not our time. We want God to move much faster than he does. Yet, we must see that God is not slow. God is deliberate. He moves and works within his sovereign time frame. God's timing is always right.Main Points:1. God is never early, never late, but he's always on time. Our timing isn't God's timing. For us, God's timing often feels like a long, desperate delay. God's perfect timing does two things: It causes our faith to grow as we wait and trust in God and it makes certain that He, and He alone, gets the glory from our lives.2. The Holy Spirit is alive and active in the life of the believer. One of his purposes is to bring guidance and direction to our lives. He is faithful to lead us to God's plan, but He can also be trusted to guide us to God's timing.3. Trust today that your steps are being established by the Lord. When it's time to take the next step, God will it clear. As you wait, believe that even though the waiting may not make sense, God's will is being performed in your life. His will, His plan, and His timing is perfect.Today's Scripture Verses:Psalm 31:15 - "My times are in Your hands ..."Ecclesiastes 3:11 the Bible says "He has made everything beautiful in its time.”Proverbs 16:9 - “In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.”Quick Links:Subscribe to The 5 Minute Discipleship NewsletterDonate to support this podcastLeave a review on Apple PodcastsGet a copy of The 5 Minute Discipleship JournalConnect on SocialJoin The 5 Minute Discipleship Facebook Group5 Minute Discipleship on Instagram
In this episode, Stephen explores the book of Zechariah, chapters 7-8. In these chapters, the prophet Zechariah urges the people of Israel to obey God's commands, not just out of tradition, but because they love Him and want to please Him. He also reminds them of the consequences of disobeying God in the past, and the blessings that they will experience if they obey Him in the future. Zechariah's message is a reminder to us today that our traditions should always be centered on God and His will for our lives. When we put our trust in traditions instead of God, we are setting ourselves up for disappointment. But when we trust in God, He will always lead us in the right direction.

We hear so often to remember and rest in the promises of God… but what exactly are those promises? In today's episode, I'm sharing seven promises of God for us all to receive into our hearts. He is good, His plans are good, and He will never be outdone in generosity! He promises to help us carry our burdens: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves.For my yoke is easy, and my burden light.” Matthew 11 He promises to work all things for our good. “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Romans 8:28 NLT) He promises to restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish us. The God of all grace who called you to his eternal glory through Christ [Jesus] will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you after you have suffered a little. 1 Peter 5:10 He promises to show us his goodness in this life. I remain confident of this: I will see the goodness of the Lord, in the land of the living. Psalm 27:13 He promises to hear us in prayer. So they took away the stone. And Jesus raised his eyes and said, “Father,* I thank you for hearing me. I know that you always hear me; but because of the crowd here I have said this, that they may believe that you sent me.” John 11:41-42 He promises to take care of everything: “This is why I tell you: Don't worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Isn't life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the sky: They don't sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you worth more than they?” Matthew 6 He promises us salvation. "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God  ; trust also in me. In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going." John 14:1-4
The strength of your spiritual life depends on using God's 10 problem-solving devices as the FLOT line in your soul. If you don't understand Rebound (1 John 1:9) and the Filling of the Holy Spirit, you are not living the Christian life. Religious rituals are meaningless unless you are filled with the Holy Spirit. “For we walk by faith, not by sight” (2 Cor 5:7). Faith is trust in God's provisions. Learning to walk by faith pleases God. “It is good for me that I was afflicted that I may learn Your statutes” (Ps 119:71). If you want to grow up spiritually you must learn God's Word. Grace Orientation will keep you stable in times of hardship and suffering. The power of Christ in His grace provisions. “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness” (2 Cor 12:9-10). Click for Full Transcript: https://rhem.pub/value-flot-98322f
Tuesday, 9 May 2023 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.” Acts 16:28 In the previous verse, the jailor was prepared to kill himself, having drawn his sword for that purpose. With that obviously seen by Paul, Luke next records, “But Paul called with a loud voice.” One might question why Paul could see the jailor, but the jailor didn't notice Paul. The answer is that the jailor has come into the cell area from the outside. There would have been no lights as there are today. There would have been no reason to provide lamps at night. And so, the cells would have been pitch black. Based on what is said in verse 29, even if he had his own torch, it wasn't sufficient to light the area. Rather, it was only light enough so that he could notice that the cells were open. He surely assumed everyone had skedaddled while he slept. It would have been an obvious inference on any other occasion. The poor lighting would not have been able to pierce into the darker recesses of the cell where the prisoners were. With his eyes straining to look into the pitch dark, his soul would have become even darker, losing hope of life itself. In that state, the sword would have been drawn and readied for its final plunge. But before that could happen, Paul called out with a loud voice, “saying, ‘Do yourself no harm.'” Paul's voice was certainly intentionally loud to arrest the suicidal thoughts of the man. The abruptness and loudness of his voice would have shocked the jailor enough to halt any action with the sword. With that happily effected, he continued his words, saying, “for we are all here.” Nothing is said of how many were in the prison. The word “all” generally implies more than two people. That makes at least three. But verse 25 had said “the prisoners were listening to them.” The plural indicates at least two others. Therefore, at a minimum, there were four prisoners but there could have been even more. But the point is made, there were at least four people whose chains had been loosed and whose doors were opened. And yet, they remained in the prison. The obvious question is, “Why would the other prisoners also have remained.” Though the narrative doesn't say, the answer Luke intends to convey is obvious. Luke purposefully noted that Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God. Unless there is a specific reason that he penned this fact, it is an otherwise irrelevant bit of information. Yes, it makes for great sermon material and allows later writers to make grand statements about the happiness one can experience even in terrible times. But that can be deduced in many other ways. Luke included those words to introduce the next clause, “and the prisoners were listening to them.” This would be an even more irrelevant statement than the previous one except for the continued narrative. Paul and Silas had such a profound effect on the other prisoners that when they were freed from their bonds, they had chosen to remain in the cell rather than escape. It can be deduced that even if they wanted to escape, Paul and Silas had convinced them that the life of the jailor would be in jeopardy and to not leave. It can be further surmised that these prisoners may have even been converted in the previous hours as they lay chained in the darkness. Whether this is the case or not, Paul and Silas at least had enough sway to convince them of their need to stay. And they did. Life application: The general tenor of the words in Acts 16 has been played out time and again since it was recorded. Christians have patiently waited on the Lord through trials, troubles, tribulations, and testing. They have praised him through storms while those around them have seen and desired a faith like theirs. An example of this is seen in the life of John Wesley. The familiar story is cited from the Methodist.org.uk website – John and Charles Wesley set out for America in 1735, enthused at the idea of preaching the Gospel to Native American people. During the voyage the ship was struck by a terrifying storm. John was afraid. He prayed with the English passengers, one of whom brought him a baby to baptise in case they were all about to die. Shortly afterwards he was at another service with a group of German Moravians when a huge wave engulfed the ship and water poured down into the cabins. While the English passengers screamed in terror, the Moravians continued singing - men, women and children seemingly untroubled. Later he asked one of the Moravians if they hadn't been afraid. He replied that not even the women and children had been afraid. None of them were afraid to die. John knew that they had something he didn't, an absolute trust in God. They were prepared to lose their lives because they knew that God was never going to let them go. John was deeply impressed. His time in America was unsuccessful in many ways, and he and Charles returned home after two years. All the time John was nagged by the thought that he did not have full faith in God. But this was about to change. Just as the faithful patience and singing of Paul and Silas brought a change in the prisoners with them, the faithful endurance and singing of the Moravians were able to pull at the soul of John Wesley. Let us consider this as we face terrible times. Our faithful composure and even elation at our salvation may be all that is needed to convict lost sinners who see. From there, the gospel can be proclaimed to the saving of their souls. Glorious heavenly Father, we have the absolute assurance of eternal life in Your presence because of the finished, final, full, and forever work of Jesus Christ. Help us to act with that assurance when times are tough. May we be as lights in the darkness to those who need to find their way back to You. Amen.
As we continue in our Genesis series, we are looking at the life of Abram and seeing how he responds through constant testing. Abram has been waiting on God to deliver on his promise for 10 years. We are a people who do not know how to wait well, so what does it look like to be people who are content and trust in God's plan?
Doing The Right Thing When It is HardGood day, brothers and sisters in Christ. Today, we will be talking about doing the right thing, especially when it is hard. We all face difficult situations where doing the right thing is not easy, but we must remember that we are called to be people of integrity, honesty, and righteousness. So, let us begin with a funny story to lighten the mood.Once, there was a man who was driving his car along a deserted road when he saw a group of men robbing a bank. He quickly called the police, who arrived just in time to catch the robbers. Later, he was asked how he managed to stay so calm during the incident. He replied, "Well, it was either that or have my wife find out that I wasn't really at work!"All jokes aside, doing the right thing is not always easy, but it is always worth it. In Proverbs 21:3, we are told that "to do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice." This means that God values our actions more than our words or offerings. He desires that we live a life that is pleasing to Him, and that means doing what is right, even when it is difficult.Let us take a look at some examples from the Bible where people did the right thing, even in the face of adversity.First, we have the story of Joseph in the book of Genesis. He was sold into slavery by his own brothers and was later falsely accused of a crime and thrown into prison. However, he remained faithful to God and continued to do the right thing. Eventually, he was released from prison and became the second-in-command in Egypt, where he was able to save his family from a severe famine. Joseph's story shows us that even when life is difficult, we must trust in God and continue to do what is right.Next, we have the story of Daniel in the book of Daniel. He was taken captive by the Babylonians and was forced to serve in the king's court. However, he refused to compromise his faith and continued to pray to God, even when it was illegal to do so. As a result, he was thrown into a den of lions, but God miraculously saved him. Daniel's story shows us that we must remain faithful to God, even when it is difficult, and that He will always protect us.Another example is the story of Esther in the book of Esther. She was chosen to be the queen of Persia and was faced with a difficult decision when she learned of a plot to kill all the Jews in the kingdom. Even though it was risky, she chose to speak up and saved her people from destruction. Esther's story shows us that sometimes doing the right thing requires courage and boldness, but God will always be with us when we take a stand for righteousness.In the New Testament, we have the story of Jesus. He was betrayed, falsely accused, and crucified, yet He remained faithful to His mission and purpose. He knew that the right thing was to give His life as a sacrifice for the sins of the world, and He did so willingly. Jesus' story shows us that doing the right thing may come at a great cost, but it is always worth it in the end.Let us now look at some applicable verses that can guide us in doing the right thing, even when it is hard:Proverbs 3:5-6 - "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight." When we trust in God and submit to His will, He will guide us in doing what is right.Galatians 6:9 - "Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." It can be easy to become discouraged when doing the right thing seems hard, but we must persevere and trust that God will reward us in due time.James 1:22 - "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says." We

Pastor Ricky will be asking you this question today, do you place all your trust in God or in idols? Your actions will reveal if you place your trust in God. You can't say that you believe God will provide for you and then live and worry and forsake the call God has on your life in order to stock up on money and resources. When times get tough do you run to the world for comfort? Or do you turn to Christ? There is nothing that can save you and give you peace like God Almighty. Turn to Him alone.

David Hoffmeister & A Course In Miracles
Opening Session - Miracle of the Mind Online Retreat with David Hoffmeister and Frances XuFrances and David have been making monthly online retreats for the last five and a half years, and this weekend is the last one, called "Miracle of the Mind." David believes that the spiritual journey is about purifying what we want and that it sets us on an automatic trajectory once we realize what we want. Then, the power of the mind, the miracle state of mind, will carry us through. Jesus tells us that words are symbols of the symbols twice removed from reality and that the prayer of the heart takes us to communion with God, not the words. Jerry Jampolsky's quote, "Remember the peace of God is my one goal," is a reminder that the desire of the heart is the key to returning the mind to the full awareness of truth. Only in complete trust in God and the Holy Spirit can we truly experience present peace. This online retreat aims to help people relax and trust God and the Holy Spirit.Enjoy David Hoffmeister and Frances Xu's opening session for this last monthly Heart of Christ online retreat.You can watch the beginning of the session on YouTube.https://youtube.com/live/4gegAPzR_GMIf you want to know more about David Hoffmeister and Living Miracles events, here is more information: https://circle.livingmiraclescenter.org/events.Recorded on May 5, 2023, Online at La Casa Quantico, Chapala, Mexico.
Daily Reflections on Divine Mercy
“Do not be afraid; just have faith” (Mark 5:36). These four words, “Do not be afraid,” are spoken countless times throughout the Scripture. We should pay attention to them. Fear can paralyze us and lead us into many forms of foolish thinking and acting. The person who acts out of fear truly acts like a fool. That may seem harsh at first, but it's not if you understand what it means. It simply means that a person acting out of fear cannot act rationally. Fear does great damage to a person's ability to stay calm, remain focused and think clearly. That's why the Scriptures speak so directly regarding this important spiritual point. Fear must give way to faith and trust in God (See Diary #626-627).What is it that causes you the most anxiety, worry and fear? It's a struggle we all deal with. There is no shame in admitting it. So what is it? Identify that which overwhelms you the most and you will identify that which God wants you to surrender in trust the most. Go to the heart of the struggle. Sincerely place that worry and fear into the Hands of God and trust. Trust that God is All-Powerful and capable of handling every situation. He may not change things the way you think they should be changed, but He will lift your burden and enable you to move forward without the fear that can easily paralyze and confuse you. Do not let fear dominate your life. Trust in God and let that trust transform you.Jesus, I do want to trust You and to entrust all my many burdens to You. I especially turn to You with (pause and state that which causes the most fear and anxiety). Please enter into this burden and lift it by Your gentle hand, replacing it with peace and great inner calm. Jesus, I trust in You.

n Psalm 5, the Psalmist speaks to God, asking Him to listen to their words and consider their lament. The Psalmist prays to God in the morning and waits expectantly for His response. God is not pleased with wickedness and evil people are not welcome in His presence. He hates those who do wrong and destroys those who tell lies. However, despite all of this, the Psalmist is still able to approach God with great love and reverence and bow down before His holy temple. This Psalm is a reminder of the power of prayer and the importance of having faith in God, even when it seems like the world is against us.The speaker discusses Psalm 5 as a prayer for protection and guidance in times of trouble. They explain that the psalmist calls out for God to lead them in the path of righteousness and have confidence in God's faithfulness and steadfast love. The speaker then elaborates on what the term ‘steadfast love' means and how it is demonstrated throughout the Bible, such as in John 3:16. They explain that this verse shows us that God's love is sacrificial and all-encompassing, so much so that He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die for our sins so that we can have eternal life.The conversation discusses the importance of prayer, trusting God's righteousness, seeking God's protection, having a heart of gratitude, and remembering God's steadfast love. It is suggested that we start our day with prayer, trusting God's righteousness, and taking refuge in Him. Taking refuge in God means relying on Him for safety, protection and guidance, and it requires us to let go of our fears and worries and to trust in His love and His faithfulness. Having a heart of gratitude means recognizing that every good and perfect gift comes from the hands of our Father, and remembering God's steadfast love can help us find hope and joy in the midst of difficult circumstances. Practical suggestions are made on how to develop a daily practice of prayer, gratitude and refuge in God.In this podcast, we discussed the importance of taking refuge in God, and trusting in his steadfast love. We were encouraged to remember that his ever present help in times of trouble is near to us, and to lean into him and trust in his love to sustain us. We were reminded to be inspired to live day by day with courage and faith and hope, knowing that God is with us and has a plan and purpose for our life. We were invited to read Psalm Five and invite God into our day, and to ask him to walk with us and talk with us and teach us things, and to reveal himself to us. Finally, we were encouraged to share this podcast and help our circle to continue to grow.Timestamps0:00:00Heading: Psalm 5: A Prayer for Guidance and Protection0:01:22Topic: Exploring the Meaning of God's Steadfast Love 0:03:18Topic: Growing in Faith and Maturing Our Walk with God0:07:41"Reflecting on Psalm Five: Taking Refuge in God"HighlightsOur lesson is that we are to seek God's protection. And that comes from verse eleven. He says, but let all who take refuge in you rejoice, let them ever sing for joy and spread your protection over them. God is our refuge and protector. So when we face trials and difficulties, we can take refuge in Him. And taking refuge in God means relying on Him for safety, protection and guidance. It's putting our trust in God's strength and power rather than our own. And when we take refuge in God, then we can acknowledge our dependence on Him and we seek Him in areas of our lives that we need help. And that's going to look different for each person's life. But here are some practical examples. When we pray, we take refuge in God because we're seeking his guidance and protection. And we're asking Him for strength to face our struggles and for wisdom to make decisions.He loved us so much that he sent Jesus to die for our sins so...

“Don't let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. 2 There is more than enough room in my Father's home.[a] If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?[b]3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. 4 And you know the way to where I am going.”5 “No, we don't know, Lord,” Thomas said. “We have no idea where you are going, so how can we know the way?”6 Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. 7 If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is.[c] From now on, you do know him and have seen him!”8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.”9 Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and yet you still don't know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? 10 Don't you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. 11 Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me. Or at least believe because of the work you have seen me do.12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father. 13 You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. 14 Yes, ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it!

Waiting can be hard, especially when we're waiting for something we really want or need. It's easy to become discouraged, anxious, or even angry when we don't see the results we're hoping for. But as followers of Jesus, we're called to trust in God's timing and his plan for our lives, even when it doesn't match up with our own.

Go(o)d Mornings with CurlyNikki
It's only up from here. Trust.I used to sing this song at church growing up— 'through it all, I learned to trust in Jesus, I learned to trust in God. Through it all, I learned to depend upon His word."His Word, which was in the beginning, and IS now;It's what you're hearing right now,this Loving-Silence IS His Word.And you're learning to listen for this vibrating Silence, through it all-- through all the noise,through all the challenges,like a rope, it's pulling you up and out of the chaos. You're learning to trust what's on the other end of that rope.Trusting that It's pulling you to safety,that It's pulling you to the recognition that you were never in a well of suffering.That there was no well,just the belief in one,the dream of one,just like the dream of 'you'.And you wake up back on the throne,you wake up back at His feet.I Love you, Niknikki@curlynikki.com_______________________Today's Quotes:"…going up on a Tuesday.” -Drake"Now we're talking about a different end of the world than the bible has meant to most people. We're talking about an end of the world which is not the creation of God. We're talking about the end of a second creation. Of a false creation.

Romans 4:18 says, “Abraham, when hope was dead within him, went on hoping in faith . . . He relied on the word of God” (Phillips). In this message, Pastor Rick shares how you can have hope even when you face a dead end as you trust in God's promises to deliver you from your troubles.
