This week, my long time friend Bekah Stanley joined me on the podcast to talk about her story of trusting God in the midst of uncertainty! In 2020, she and her husband Ryan felt called to Iceland to be missionaries. But after knocking on multiple doors, the Lord closed them all. She shared how she learned to trust God and relinquish control - even in the midst of uncertain times.

In the day-to-day, where are you focused? What do you pursue? "Abide in Me and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me." John 15:4 NASB What does it mean to abide? Some translations use the word "remain," or "stay." I think of resting, persisting, persevering, hanging on. To abide in Jesus means that I don't abandon him and try to do things my own way. No branch can bear fruit unless it is connected and drawing it's life from the vine. We're pretty powerful and wealthy. It's easy to believe that we have the power to do the things we want. But we can't make ourselves right with God. And I wonder what we miss because we do things on our own instead of trusting and waiting for Jesus. We even mentioned about focusing on Jesus yesterday, too. When we focus on him, he makes things work. I confess I even struggle with this from time to time. I want to trust him. I want to remain in him. I turn to him to make that happen. I don't have the power in and of myself. Trusting God is an active choice. I have to choose to abide or remain. Deep down, I know I can't do anything without him. However sometimes abiding in him takes a long time. I hope I can remember to stick to my pay grade. How long is God's problem. How much fruit is also his problem. What I have to do to be pruned, again, that's God's problem. My challenge is to remain. What would help you remain? For me, I'm a community person. I need people around me to help me abide, as well as friends who are also abiding and waiting on Jesus. If you need a community like that, check out a local church. Or, you can also connect with us at https://community.followerofone.org. Remember what we do because we follow Jesus matters, forever.
Elder James Wilson delivers a powerful message anchored in Ecclesiastes 11:5. In life, we often face situations where we don't have all the answers. We don't know how things will work out, when they will, or even what the solution might be. But here's the beautiful truth: we don't have to know all the details. All we need to know is that God knows, and we can trust Him. We stream live every Sunday at 11am ET and every Wednesday at 8 pm ET.

ACTS: The Triumph of the Gospel“DELAYED DELIVERANCE: Trusting God in the Storms of Life"Acts 27“Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people.” (Acts 2:46-47). “And the word of God kept on spreading; and the number of the disciples continued to increase greatly . . .” (Acts 6:&). “So the church throughout Judea and Galilee and Samaria enjoyed peace, being built up; and going on the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it continued to increase.” (Acts 9:31). “So the churches were being strengthened in the faith, and were increasing in number daily.” (Acts 16:5). “So the word of the Lord was growing mightily and prevailing.” (Acts 19:20). WOW!! Just about on every page of the book of Acts we see the amazing story of THE TRIUMPH OF THE GOSPEL even in the darkest of times. So what did the early church as described in Acts have that the modern church today doesn't have? Answer: ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! God has given to us today the very same thing that He gave the early church. As we begin our journey into this faithful and carefully written history of the early church by Doctor Luke, let's pray that God will instill a new excitement and joy for what He has done and can continue to do by His Holy Spirit through the Church of Jesus Christ today, so that the TRIUMPH OF THE GOSPEL can be experienced even now in the dark days in which we live.
Trusting God is the cornerstone to the Christian faith, but when it comes to finances & tithing, it can be tough.In Matthew 14, Jesus and His disciples find themselves at an impasse. With tens of thousands of people wanting to hear Jesus' words, they need to be fed. Jesus then takes some bread and fish from a young boy and multiplies it, feeding everyone-- with extra to spare. The secret is God can turn a little into a lot. He can take your gifts and do something big, but before anything you have to trust Him. When you bless Jesus, He will bless you in abundance.Like, subscribe, and leave us a comment.Support what Sandals Church is doing at https://donate.sc or use the Sandals Church App https://sandalschurch.com/app/Do you have questions, need prayer or want to get connected?

There is a God. He has called you. He will go with you. This is going to be the message to Moses and the people of Israel. But these statements of truth leave us with a choice that lands one what this series and Moses' story seems to be all about: Will you believe in God? Will you obey God? Will you trust God? Those statements don't do much good without our actions. When we act on those truths, God's purposes on earth come to life, and that's never been seen more vividly than with Moses.

Trusting God with your leftovers leaves you hungry and unsatisfied. We can have a lot of excuses on why we can't, shouldn't, or won't give. Whatever excuse or explanation we use…it's depending on our own understanding. We'll find that we're called to more than trusting in ourselves.
Overthink: verb: to spend more time thinking about something than is necessary or productive. This little word can activate everything from little annoyances to major mental roadblocks. It comes in many forms: constantly worrying about the future, “analysis paralysis” that stifles decision-making, over-analyzing past mistakes, and second guessing ourselves in social situations and relationships. Those are just a few of the ways we tend to overthink. In this episode, we'll detail the major ways many psychologists categorize overthinking. There's a good chance you'll recognize yourself in one or more. Then, we'll follow up with five steps to slow down or stop the overthinking cycle. Along with tips from pros, we'll recount some successes and failures we've had along the way. Some of these situations include Sandy's recovery from “catastrophizing” (otherwise known as drama) and Lanée learning to cope with embarrassing situations (and we DO mean embarrassing). Join us as we imagine a life free from the burdens of overthinking and discover how to find inner peace and embrace the unexpected. We'll talk about tapping into our faith and how trusting God and His timing can have a huge effect on our clarity and comfort level. Plus, we focus on silencing that ever-present inner critic. So grab some coffee or tea, click play, and let's navigate the path to a more balanced and positive mindset together.For more info on IMAGINE YOURSELF with Lanee Blaise and Sandy Kovach or to contact us, visit imagineyourselfpodcast.comJoin the conversation on our FACEBOOK, TWITTER or INSTAGRAM pages.

If it felt easier (not that it was easy, but maybe easier than it feels right now) to homeschool when they were little and now it's feeling hard because they're older, then today's episode is for you. Even if your kids are still little and it's feeling difficult to trust yourself to know what's best for them, today's episode is for you, too. In fact, there are so many areas that we lack trust in: Trusting your kids to do their school work, get their chores done, and grow up to be good people when they grow up is so hard to do (specially if they've lied or cheated in the past) Trusting your husband when it feels like he doesn't completely understand what you're going through. Trusting God when it feels like things aren't going the way we'd hoped they would... It all boils down to how we trust ourselves. In today's episode I'm going to dive into what lack of Trust in yourself looks like and reveal the two reasons you aren't trusting right now. I'll talk about where some of this comes from and give you some good questions to ask when you're thinking about saying Yes to something without giving it proper consideration. If trust is one of the hardest things for you to do in your homeschool day, then grab your earbuds and let's hang out! If this is the work God is whispering in your ear to do with Him this school year, then please reach out to me for a free Consult Call so we can talk about when that started, how it's been showing up in your life since, and I'll show you the exact path you can take right now to start building trust with yourself, your kids, and with God. It doesn't have to be like this anymore. You can feel better, more peaceful, and more confident, all it takes is deciding it's time. If you're ready, let's talk.

Join Melody and Candi as they sit down with good friend Jerry Grimes and discuss together the blessings that come into our life from being obedient to what God is calling us to do. Jerry shares an incredible story of love, trust, and complete faithfulness to what God asked of him and his wife, even when the path and journey before them had no absolutes.
Am I going to trust God? Every single one of us has to decide what we're going to do with this question. At some point, what God says takes precedence in our lives or something else does, and I believe the decisions we make over and over again are what shape our character and create our destiny.

Trusting God is the root of deep faith, and this is where all blessings are bestowed. In this Part 10 of the reflection about Let Go and Let God, God is strengthening us in His unfailing love for us, and in the gift of His righteousness, which He has given us as a free gift. Dr. Siohvaughn Funches focuses on Chapter 6 of the Book of Daniel. Pondering on the prophet's life, she talks about God's right timing in conferring blessings unto us and why we must be ready for the jealousy and insecurities that lie ahead. Dr. Siohvaughn also delves into a lesson of leadership, sharing how King Darius decided to embrace humility and trust God as for the outcome of Daniel's life. Let go and let God take over everything that concerns us, and receive all God has for us with joy, peace, and rest!

Title: Hurt In The Church Volume 1 “Hurt By A Pastor” Website: www.PastorTodd.org To give or support: www.ToddCoconato.com/give Church website: www.RRCNashville.org New book: www.PastorToddBook.com In the journey of faith, many of us have experienced hurt, disappointment, and even betrayal within the church. Whether it's from a pastor, a fellow believer, or someone else, these painful experiences can leave us questioning our faith and our place within the church community. However, as Christians, we are called to keep our eyes on Jesus, even in the midst of these difficult circumstances. Let's explore how the Bible encourages us to navigate church hurts while focusing on our Savior. 1. Jesus: Our Ultimate Example of Forgiveness Matthew 18:21-22 (NIV) - "Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, 'Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?' Jesus answered, 'I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.'" Just as Jesus forgave those who crucified Him while hanging on the cross (Luke 23:34), we are called to emulate His example of forgiveness. When we've been hurt by someone in the church, it can be challenging to let go of the pain and resentment. However, keeping our eyes on Jesus reminds us that forgiveness is a crucial aspect of our faith, allowing us to experience healing and restoration. 2. Trusting God's Sovereignty in All Situations Romans 8:28 (NIV) - "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." While church hurts can cause us to question God's plan, the Bible reassures us that God can bring good out of even the most challenging situations. Keeping our eyes on Jesus means trusting in His sovereignty and believing that He is at work, even when we can't see it. Our faith grows when we remember that God can use our pain to shape us into the people He intends us to be. 3. Cultivating Humility and Grace 1 Peter 4:8 (NIV) - "Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." When hurt by a fellow believer, we have the opportunity to demonstrate humility and grace, just as Jesus did. Instead of harboring bitterness or seeking revenge, we can choose to extend love and forgiveness. By doing so, we reflect Christ's character and allow His light to shine through us, even in the midst of difficult circumstances. Church hurts can leave lasting wounds, but as followers of Jesus, we are called to respond in a way that reflects His teachings and example. Through forgiveness, trust in God's sovereignty, and a commitment to love and grace, we can navigate these challenges while keeping our eyes on Jesus. By doing so, we not only find healing for ourselves but also contribute to the restoration and unity of the church as a whole.

Often, our worries come from not being able to control a situation. The truth is that we cannot plan for all the uncertainties we will face, but we can trust our Immanuel, the God who is with us, to give us His strength and peace through all the trials and troubles we will face in this life. When our minds become stuck in "what if" thinking, we see things from our finite viewpoint. We forget that God is infinite and that we can trust Him even when life is uncertain or doesn't make sense. In this episode, Gretchen Ronnevik interviews Michelle about the eighth chapter of her book, Immanuel. They talk about how God is with us in all things and also some of the Bible verses that can remind us of the promises that we have in God.
