Mini devotions on the day to day issues, taking Bible study from information to application.

    Replay Thursday-The Anatomy of an Inappropriate Relationship

    Replay Thursday-The Anatomy of an Inappropriate Relationship

    Welcome to REPLAY THURSDAY, where you'll hear the most popular episodes from the previous season. This episode first aired on February 13, 2023, the day before Valentine's Day. Not exactly the kind of episode for a romantic holiday, but thousands of downloads later, it was one of the most played episodes of 2023.
    It's devastating to hear about marriages and families exploding because of inappropriate relationships. This has become its own pandemic, with too many people walking into traps baited with flattery and excessive attention.
    When all the lust is exhausted, two people are left with empty brokenness. It's not so exciting then. God never intended for the sacred beauty of the physical relationship to be treated like a fast-food restaurant meal. His boundaries are for the blessing and benefit of our lives. "Keep my commandments and live" is not a suggestion; it's an instruction for our wellbeing. Proverbs chapter seven details the anatomy of an inappropriate relationship. This is not an episode for children.
    "Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye." (Proverbs 7:2)

    Arrogance and Ignorance-An Interview with Author Kathy Ashley

    Arrogance and Ignorance-An Interview with Author Kathy Ashley

    AN INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR KATHY ASHLEY
    When Kathy Ashley heart about "AI," those letters brought two different words to her mind. Not "artificial intelligence," but Arrogance and Ignorance. This is the kind of AI that leads to an artificial inflation of self, and it's hazardous to our spiritual health.
    Arrogance is pride on steroids. When you mix arrogance with ignorance, this creates a puffed up conceit that is deceptive. We can become our own worst enemies when we're infected with the dynamic duo of arrogance and ignorance. The antidote to this infection is God's Word. He has the prescription for healing and recovery.
    "The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate." (Proverbs 8:13)
    Visit the shop links below at Keep the Heart to find Kathy Ashley's trio of excellent books: Vitamins for the Soul, Minerals for the Mind, and Call Upon Him.

    Build Your Bible Habit-Proverbs Chapter 1

    Build Your Bible Habit-Proverbs Chapter 1

    BONUS BIBLE SERIES: Build Your Bible Habit! 
    Do you struggle to get into Scripture daily? You're not alone, but this problem can be fixed and we'd like to help. For years, people have used the Proverb-a-Day system to build a daily Bible reading habit, and it has been very successful in helping people to develop a daily habit of reading and Bible study. If you've been repeating the same mistakes and falling in the same ditch, perhaps it's because you're spiritually underfed.
    The daily Proverb system is simple: listen to these chapters in order by the date on the calendar (read Proverbs chapter one on the 1st of each month, chapter 2 on the 2nd and continue until chapter 31). Many of you have already done this, but for those who haven't, prepare for a deeper level of wisdom and a closer walk with God.
    We know that you can get an audio Bible through any Bible app. This is just an extra service provided by a sister friend who cares. Daily Bible reading is essential to our spiritual health. As it says in Proverbs 8:34 "Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors." When you're in the Word daily, you're feasting on Soul Food!

    Don't Be Fooled-Replay Refresher

    Don't Be Fooled-Replay Refresher

    Welcome to a REPLAY REFRESHER from Keep the Heart!
    "Don't Be Fooled" first aired in January of 2023, and thousands of downloads later, people are still clicking this episode. These are confusing times, and we need more wisdom and discretion to be alert to the hazards of falling from the truth of God's Word. 
    Have you ever listened to someone who was trying to sound like they knew what they were talking about, but you could tell that they were just making things up? That’s what’s going on today as people have coined the phrase, “I am speaking my truth.” It's impossible to create our own truth, but we can be deceived into thinking that it's possible.
    Jesus said this plain statement to His disciples in John 14:6: "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."
    Are we becoming confused because  spiritually we're starving? Let’s look at three things you can do to protect yourself from deception.
