    First15 Conversations: Media Consumption

    First15 Conversations: Media Consumption

    Pre-Order Your Copy of Living Intentionally Here!
    According to a recent Business Insider study, the average iPhone user reaches for their phone 2,616 times per day. 
    That’s A LOT.
    In case you’ve missed it, over the past few weeks in our First15 Podcast Conversations we’ve been talking about how to live intentionally in every area of our lives.
    Today, we’re talking about what I think is the biggest obstacle to our success… media consumption.
    You may be thinking I’m going to tell you that social media is evil, but that’s not the case. But I do think that media, in general, is designed to capture our attention, and will take over as much space as we allow in our lives. 
    I hope you’ll join me, Rachel, and Josh as we each share the unique boundaries we have set up for our media consumption, as well as the tips we share for maintaining a healthy media relationship in your own life!

    Surrender

    Surrender

    Fullness of life and surrender are inextricably linked. As we begin to wrap up our week on diving into the fullness of life, today we’ll explore the concept of surrendering to Jesus. May you be encouraged instead of burdened and take whatever next steps necessary to give Jesus your all.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Matthew 10:39, and today's worship is Find Me by Jonathan & Melissa Helser.

    Instead of choosing the things that fill your day, does life always somehow sweep you up into its endless flow of expectations and obligations?

    Understanding

    Understanding

    This week as we dive deeper into the fullness of life available to us, we’ll look today at the biblical concept of understanding and how it relates to experiencing God. May God shift your perspective today and bring you into greater fullness of life in your relationship with him. What’s beautiful about God is that no matter where you’re at in your walk with him, there is always more.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Psalms 145:18, and today's worship is Over All I Know by Vertical Worship.

    Faith and Trust

    Faith and Trust

    Are you standing on sinking sand? Or do you feel the ground firm beneath your feet? Assess your heart in this moment. Are you living in fear? Are you shaken as things appear to be falling apart? Allow your answers to be indicators of whether or not you’re placing your faith and trust in God alone. The Lord is a firm foundation, and the only solid place to place your trust. In diving deeper today, we’re going to secure our foundation in the only steady hope—Jesus.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Psalm 9:10, and today's worship is Be Still by Hillsong Worship.

    Acknowledging Our Need

    Acknowledging Our Need

    As we dive deeper into the fullness of life available to us this week, looking at the concept of acknowledging our need for God is essential. We will never taste the fullness of God’s sufficient grace until we learn to live low, acknowledging our need and weakness before the Lord. So many of us are fearful of appearing weak and work our fingers to the bone to feel sufficient within ourselves. The only path to true power and freedom comes through embracing our need and lack. May you experience that freedom and strength from God today.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Psalm 72:26, and today's worship is Come Now by Mack Brock.

    Honesty Before Man

    Honesty Before Man

    As we continue to dive deeper into the fullness of life available to us, today we’ll explore what it means to live honestly before man. In a world of facades and striving, God wants to offer us freedom and confidence to be fully who he has made us to be. May you learn to value to honesty above all else in dealing with those around you and find joy and peace abundant.
    Our Scripture for today comes from 2 Corinthians 8:21, and today's worship is Kyrie Eleison by Vineyard Worship.
