    Renewal of Perspective

    Renewal of Perspective

    In our last episode of this week on renewal, today we’re looking at what it means to have a renewal of perspective. Lately for me, it seems like the difference between a bad day and a good day is simply just a difference in my perspective. And there’s hardly anything more empowering that realizing that we have the ability to change how we think, to shift our perspective, and therefore change how we feel and how we act. So may God give us the power and courage to choose the right perspective today, to see the world and our lives through his eyes.
    Our Scripture for today comes from 1 John 2:17, and today's worship is Only Jesus by Brian Johnson.

    If you’ve wrestled with making Bible study a consistent habit of spiritual formation, A Light Unto My Path will inspire and encourage you to drink more deeply from the unending well that is the Bible. 



    A Light Unto My Path will answer these 7 critical questions: 
    Why do we read the Bible? How was the Bible created? Why do we need to interpret the Bible? What is the Bible about? What are the best tools for studying the Bible? What can I learn from others? How can I learn for myself?  
    I love that the goal of this book is not to learn more about the Bible (even though you will), but to better understand the Bible as one of the primary ways God seeks to have a relationship with us today.

    Renewal of Conscience

    Renewal of Conscience

     
    As we near the end of our week-long series on renewal, today we’re going to invite God to bring a renewal of conscience to our hearts and mind. That our perspectives and beliefs about ourselves would be washed clean in God’s mercy and grace. May God empower us to see ourselves the way he does as we spend meaningful time in his presence today.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Hebrews 10:22, and today's worship is Born Again by Cory Asbury.

    Renewal of Purpose

    Renewal of Purpose

    In today’s devotional, we’re going to invite God to renew within us a true sense of purpose. Throughout the day I find my heart wandering to all sorts of purposes, some good, and some bad. But every day life teaches me that the one purpose that leads to the greatest measure of life and joy, is the pursuit of God. Not the pursuit of religion, but the authentic pursuit of relationship. May the Holy Spirit reveal within us the true reason we were created, and guide us down the path of purpose today in his presence.
    Our Scripture for today comes from John 15:16, and today's worship is The Story I'll Tell by Maverick City Music feat Naomi Raine.

    Renewal of Joy

    Renewal of Joy

    In the middle of this week-long series on renewal, today we’re going to make room for God to renew our joy. Joy is something I so often struggle to walk in as I allow the cares and burdens of life to weigh me down. But every morning is a new opportunity to come before our Father, give our cares over to him, and choose again the path of joy. May God guide us today into a meaningful renewal of joy as we set our eyes and hearts on him.
     
    Our Scripture for today comes from Psalm 51:12, and today's worship is You Are My Joy by United Pursuit feat Will Reagan.

    Renewal of Your First Love

    Renewal of Your First Love

    In our third devotional on seeking renewal from our good and loving God, today we’re going to look at what it means to have a renewal of our first love. What, who we love first, makes all the difference in how we spend our days, and how we spend our moments. And unless God is our first love, the one we’re giving all of our hearts to, life will always feel out of balance, and lacking the fullness of fulfillment. May God guide us to a deeper love of him today as we open our hearts and hands to meet with him.
    Our Scripture for today comes from Revelation 2:4, and today's worship is First Love by Jonathan and Melissa Helser.

    The Renewal of Your Mind

    The Renewal of Your Mind

    In the second day of our series on renewal, today we’re going to invite God to renew our minds. Our minds are the gateway to our emotions, decisions, and perspectives. How we see the world around us, the assumptions we live with, the lies we believe, and where we choose to focus our attention, make all the difference in our daily experience. May God guide each of us down the path to renewing our minds in his presence, and through his word today, that we might experience a greater measure of abundant life in him.
     
    Our Scripture for today comes from Romans 12:2, and today's worship is Renew My Mind by Kim Hill.

I really love this podcast! I started listening to this podcast back in February after a major surgery. The daily reminder of how I should live and God’s promises is exactly what I need. I start everyday in prayer, scripture reading the First 15 podcast.

Thank you a million times. You may never know how much I am truly thankful for you and team for creating this podcast. I am just truly grateful.

Blessings
