THE TREASURE OF WISDOM / PART IV

…BOTH OF THE FATHER AND OF CHRIST, IN WHOM ARE HIDDEN ALL THE TREASURES OF WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE…

Amidst the post-Thanksgiving holiday shopping craze, Heather and Diana look to scripture to be reminded that the true treasure of the ages is Jesus Christ.  In Him, we find everything we need, including the wisdom to make financial and lifestyle decisions that glorify Him and further His kingdom.

Also, this podcast includes the full original song titled “I AM”, written and performed by Heather M Potter.  It reminds us of the powerful I AM statements Jesus makes about himself in the book of John and is rendered with such beauty and intention – this song may become an anthem of praise for you to add to your worship playlist.  ENJOY!

THE TREASURE OF WISDOM / PART III


FOR THIS REASON WE ALSO, SINCE THE DAY WE HEARD IT, DO NOT CEASE TO PRAY FOR YOU, AND TO ASK THAT YOU BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL IN ALL WISDOM…
This week, Heather and Diana are joined by two guests to discuss how prayer is an active way to seek the treasure of wisdom.  Our earnest desire to know His will for our lives will help us make decisions that honor the Lord and cause us to interact with one another with grace.  They also explore the relationship between wisdom, gratitude, and contentment.

THE TREASURE OF WISDOM / PART II

…AND DO NOT WALK IN THE WAY OF EVIL.  AVOID IT, DO NOT TRAVEL ON IT; TURN AWAY FROM IT AND PASS ON.

This week, Heather and Diana discuss how the pursuit of wisdom – seeking it as treasure – includes the active decision to avoid evil, resist temptation, and turn away from sin.  They explore how the setting of healthy and intentional boundaries leads to security and peace during the search for wisdom.

Also, this podcast features a beautiful original song by Heather, inspired by Philippians 4:8. 

THE TREASURE OF WISDOM / PART I

HAPPY IS THE MAN WHO FINDS WISDOM, AND THE MAN WHO GAINS UNDERSTANDING…

This week, Heather and Diana dive into a new series about wisdom.  They explore the book of Proverbs and discuss various nuggets of truth about discernment, understanding, and knowledge in order to walk worthy of the Lord and live a life that is pleasing to God.  This week, they focus on the power of words, how wise choices can lead to “happier” outcomes, and how wisdom, at its core, is all about fearing and respecting God.

The Vegas Massacre

WE ARE HARD-PRESSED ON EVERY SIDE, YET NOT CRUSHED; WE ARE PERPLEXED, BUT NOT IN DESPAIR…

In this week’s conversation, Heather and Diana reflect and acknowledge the tragedy that broke many hearts and took too many lives:  the mass shooting in Las Vegas on Sunday, October 1st.  Faced with a display of pure evil, questions about God’s sovereignty and goodness are bound to arise.  Heather and Diana turn to scripture to explore answers to these questions and try to understand what it means to suffer as Christ followers.

They also pray for the families of those whose lives were taken and for those who were injured physically and emotionally scarred by the events of that horrific night.  They pray for peace and the Light of Christ to flood into their lives as they heal and recover.  And they pray that the assurance that God is just will be a comfort to their souls.  “For it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,’  says the Lord.” Romans 12:19

Looking to Jesus: PART X

CARRY NEITHER MONEY BAG, KNAPSACK, NOR SANDALS; AND GREET NO ONE ALONG THE ROAD…

Have you ever wondered, “How am I going to do the seemingly impossible things Jesus calls me to do?”  Have you ever looked around at your limited resources and not-so-favorable circumstances and wondered, “So, how exactly are you going to provide, Lord?”  Have you ever wondered, “Will He truly fulfill His promises?  Will He really do what He said He would do?”  If so, then this week’s conversation is for you.  Heather and Diana dive into Luke 10, when Jesus sends out the 70 with instructions that really test their faith and yet give them the opportunity to experience His provision and power in ways they couldn’t imagine.

 

Looking to Jesus: PART IX

…HOW MUCH MORE WILL YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER GIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THOSE WHO ASK HIM!

Jesus modeled for us a relationship with God that is both revolutionary and encouraging.  He cried out to God as Father and invites us to do the same.  And as our father, He wants to provide for us.  This week, Heather and Diana discuss how we can follow the example of Jesus and walk as trusting children of God the Father.
