Testimony Tuesday: Decisions, Decisions

Decisions, Decisions I’ve been asked to pray about several decisions lately. To listen for God’s direction about my involvement in two different ministries. And to date, I haven’t gotten any direction yet. I say yet because I’m confident that God will answer and answer clearly at the right time. How do I know that? Because he has done it in the past. Your Journey Has the Lord’s Approval There was a time when I was praying about stepping down from a ministry. I’d been involved for nearly four years and I was tired. T-i-r-e-d. And began to feel that God...

Times of Refreshing

Therefore repent and be converted, that your sins may be wiped away, that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord,  and that He may send the One who previously was preached to you, Jesus Christ, whom the heavens must receive until the time of restoring what God spoke through all His holy prophets since the world began. Acts 3:19-21 Times of Refreshing You hear a lot of talk nowadays about self care. It’s about how we all need to take better care of ourselves, especially if we are in helping careers. But even those who are not...

LRL 2.82 – Sara Dormon

We often strive to be liked by the people in our lives, but author Sara Dormon says that if you’re a Christian and everybody likes you, then something is wrong. That’s actually the title of Sara’s newest book and in today’s episode, we talk about why that’s not such a funny joke. Sara is a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and is an advocate for women and children. She writes to share the causes she is passionate about, and to encourage Christians to live out the call on their own lives. Today we talk about adoption and foster care,...

Testimony Tuesday: Looking for a Miracle

Looking for a File It’s so maddening when you can’t find something you are looking for. Especially when you really need whatever it is. You know, like your car keys, your phone, or your wallet. So you start praying for a miracle. This has happened to me twice in the last couple of months. It wasn’t my wallet or my keys. It was two different files for current projects that all of a sudden disappeared. I mean I couldn’t find them anywhere. And these files were for major projects that I have been working on. I would have to...

Overflow with Hope

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 Today’s verse is a short and sweet one. The apostle Paul is writing to the Romans and he gives them instructions on how to treat one another, Jews and Gentiles alike. And he ends this section of his letter with a benediction of hope, praying that God will fill his readers with joy and peace through the power of the Holy Spirit. Overflow with Hope I think we...

LRL 2.81 – Karrilee Aggett

Like many of my guests, Karrilee Aggett is a wife, mom, and writer. But more than that Karrilee is a firm believer in the love of God that covers each and every one of us, defines who we are, and shapes all of our relationships. Karrilee is also a pastor and church planter, and an encourager. In this episode we talk about the early days of blogging, raising children and facing the empty nest years and realizing that God still has a call on our lives, and answering God’s call even when it doesn’t make sense to us. Living...
