    Ep18: Is God Calling You to Something But It Doesn't Make Sense?

    Ep18: Is God Calling You to Something But It Doesn't Make Sense?

    Have you been asking God for an answer or direction in something but it feels like He isn't responding? Sometimes our stubbornness, pride and/or fear gets in the way. But God has a way of bringing us into seasons that remind us of His faithfulness.

    In this episode, I share about my current season of a few decisions I am making that don't make sense but I'm doing them anyway. How do I know I'll be okay? I explore a passage in the Bible, Joshua 3 & 4, that helped to remind me and assure me and hopefully it will help you too!

    Ep17: What Do The Desires of Our Heart Really Mean? Interview w/Ophelia Lorraine

    Ep17: What Do The Desires of Our Heart Really Mean? Interview w/Ophelia Lorraine

    There are so many questions surrounding the desires of our heart. Are they good? Are they bad? Are they of God or not? How do we know?

    Or better yet, when we do know a certain desire to be a promise from God, yet we remain in waiting.

    In this interview episode, I have a very special guest and author, Ophelia Lorraine, to help us navigate these themes which she features in her new book, From God, With Love.

    Ep16: 3 Ways to Help Turn the Comparison Game Around

    Ep16: 3 Ways to Help Turn the Comparison Game Around

    We fall into this online world where comparison crosses the line from aspiration to negativity.
    Comparison can be good in that it can show us what is possible, or give us goals to aspire to. And above that, comparing ourselves to Jesus on the regular keeps us in check to be sure we are still in strive to be as Christ-like as we can be as sinners of this world.

    Comparison can be good! But I think a lot of us dwell in the bad side of this issue.

    How do we turn that around?

    In this episode, I share three ways how we can find ways to release the negative side of comparison and follow Jesus in this area. This will help us to love over comparing or judging.

    Ep14: Has God Answered Your Prayer Already? Don't Stay Used to What He Used to Do!

    Ep14: Has God Answered Your Prayer Already? Don't Stay Used to What He Used to Do!

    As we grow in our walk with Jesus, we go through different seasons that require that our relationship with Him changes too. We ultimately learn how to have a stronger relationship with the one who is the relationship we will have with no one else, yet it will teach us how to have relationships with others! As we grow in Him, we will see how he will communicate with us and answer our prayers differently than He had before.
