    S2 #6 Did God say that? Featuring Lucinda Smith

    S2 #6 Did God say that? Featuring Lucinda Smith

    Steve's wife Lucinda joins us again - this time to reflect on the issue of faith. Faith has been described as the currency of heaven and the Bible tells us that without faith it is impossible to please God (Heb. 11:6). But what is faith? Perhaps one of the biggest challenges that many of us have is to hear and respond to the seemingly very small call of God on our lives.

    S2 #4 Let the land rest - featuring Joshua Luke Smith

    S2 #4 Let the land rest - featuring Joshua Luke Smith

    Steve Smith interviews his son Joshua Luke Smith (poet, musician and collaborator on the Live From Rest App). Together they explore the potential we ALL have to be free the from the stress that so many are experiencing in days of Coronavirus induced lockdown. If we learn to trust God for provision even 'as the land rests', we can be free from anxiety caused by our own apparent inability to provide at this time.

    It is truly liberating to see all that we have as a gift from God, rather than as a reward for our labours, especially in days of scarcity, or potential lack.

    In the interview Josh recommends "Every moment Holy" by Douglas McKelvey. For more on this visit:

    S2 #2 Fear no evil

    S2 #2 Fear no evil

    Steve Smith shares some thoughts on the subject of being at peace despite walking through a valley. He includes something of his own experience, feeling able to trust God immediately before undergoing major surgery for prostate cancer as well as for other uncertainties. As we trust the promises of God, we can join David in saying ‘though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for you are with me’ (Psalm 23:6)

    S2 #1 Walk Slow - with Kara Smith

    S2 #1 Walk Slow - with Kara Smith

    Welcome to the first episode of Season 2 of the Live From Rest podcast! In this episode I interview Kara Smith, singer with "Orphan No More" and one of the 'voices' on the Live From Rest app. We discuss the call of God on our lives to simply  'walk slow', rather than be caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, with the dangers of simply missing God in our busyness.
    We are delighted to have Kara sing her song 'Walk Slow' at the end of this recording and we have incorporated this song into a new meditation on the Live From Rest app (in the 'song' section). If you don't yet have the app, download it and enjoy all the content for free. Please visit: www.livefromrest.com for more information.
    If you are interested in connecting with Kara, especially if you would like to find out more about her 'Healthy Strong' ministry, please visit: www.healthystrong.org and you may also be interested in her online counselling service which you can access via www.soulsession.co
