    Worshiping with Color | Ep. 17

    Worshiping with Color | Ep. 17

    "The LORD says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is based on merely human rules they have been taught." Isaiah 29:13
    Worshiping is simply our response to God's love, who He is and what He has done. 
    Worshiping with color is an expression of one's unique personality. God created us as an original- we don't sound the same, walk the same or even like all the same things. 
    Our worship may even look a little different. Some may sing lout with arms high and eyes closed, others may sit with their head bowed, while still others softly sing with hands layered on their heart. 
    It's not what the exterior looks like, it's about the intention of the heart and mind. 
    All Worshiping in Color resources are found at www.rising-oaks.com

    How to Find Rest on All Sides | Ep. 16

    How to Find Rest on All Sides | Ep. 16

    2 Chronicles 15:15 (NIV) says “All Judah rejoiced about the oath because they had sworn it wholeheartedly. They sought God eagerly, and He was found by them. So the Lord gave them rest on every side.”
    Only God gives the rest we so desperately need.He knows that when we are distracted by our to-do lists and need to do lists we miss Him and His fullness. He knows our minds and hearts need quietness with Him. He knows all of this because He created us to need Him and find rest in Him alone.
    Make time for Him today & watch and see how He shows up to gift you with rest... on every side.

    Tired of Waiting? | Ep. 14

    Tired of Waiting? | Ep. 14

    God is methodical, strategic and absolute. He is always working when our natural eyes cannot see. However, it can be hard to wait when we are excited and full of expectation for what's to come. Are you tired of waiting? Do you find the wait difficult to remain faithfully consistent in your current season? Me too! 
    Today's episode we will dive into 1 Samuel 17 and gain wisdom from David, before he became king of Israel. There are three things David does that, I believe, propel him from being stuck in the wait. He was already anointed king of Israel, yet we find him in the pasture tending his father's sheep while King Saul's army is fighting against the Philistines. 
    How does David rise to the challenge or the battlefield? 
    How does David remain faithful during the wait? 
    How did David become the right person when opportunity came knocking? 
    Take a listen to this week's episode to find out.

Like talking to a friend over coffee

Listening to Ashley is like enjoying coffee and spiritual insight with a good friend! She is encouraging, relatable, and uses scripture and teachings to back up what she is saying. Such an encouraging way to get through the day-Especially since I am a stay home mom who is seeking what the Lord has for her life during this new season!
