…BECAUSE HE DELIGHTS IN MERCY. HE WILL AGAIN HAVE COMPASSION ON US…
This week, Heather and Diana discuss how God, the Father, shows us incredible compassion and is the God of all comfort, to whom we can run in times of mourning. They explore the beauty of His mercy and what it means when scripture says, “Mercy triumphs over judgment.”
YOU SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES, FOR IN THEM YOU THINK YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE, AND THESE ARE THEY WHICH TESTIFY OF ME.
This week, Heather and Diana discuss how the discipline of simplicity can be applied to how we read the Word. Often times we look to scripture with a complicated and self-focused agenda, searching through verses to read what we want to read and glean what we hope to glean. And although God does use scripture to guide us and give us wisdom for our daily living, He uses the Word to simply reveal Himself that we might know Him and, in Him, find everything we need.
FOR IF OUR HEART CONDEMNS US, GOD IS GREATER THAN OUR HEART, AND KNOWS ALL THINGS.
This week, Heather and Diana discuss how simplicity can apply to our emotional well-being. In Christ, we are free to step off the roller coaster of emotions that can lead to prolonged depression or, on the other extreme, irrational euphoria. We can be like King David, who did not adhere to the world’s mantra – “trust your heart” – but instead, chose to trust and hope in God and His Word to deal with overwhelming emotions.
…FOR ONE’S LIFE DOES NOT CONSIST IN THE ABUNDANCE OF THINGS HE POSSESSES.
This week, Heather and Diana discuss the warnings Jesus gives about greed and His invitation to simplicity that comes from a deep trust in His provision, a balance of gratitude and hope taught by the Holy Spirit, and an intentional pursuit of lasting treasure: godliness.
I KNOW YOUR WORKS, YOUR LABOR, YOUR PATIENCE…NEVERTHELESS, I HAVE THIS AGAINST YOU, THAT YOU HAVE LEFT YOUR FIRST LOVE.
This week, Heather and Diana discuss the importance of putting our relationship, oneness, and intimacy with the Lord first and foremost in our lives. Dwelling with the Lord, our first love, must be our highest priority because He is worthy, and it will exponentially increase our ability to experience His presence and His goodness.
BUT ONE THING IS NEEDED, AND MARY HAS CHOSEN THAT GOOD PART, WHICH WILL NOT BE TAKEN AWAY FROM HER.
This week, Heather and Diana discuss the importance of “dwelling with the Lord” and what it means to sit at His feet and gaze upon His beauty. King David of the Old Testament and Mary of the New Testament show us that the ultimate goal of following Jesus is intimacy with Him.
…FOR IF YOU DO THESE THINGS YOU WILL NEVER STUMBLE.
This week, Heather and Diana explore how a passage of scripture from 2 Peter eases our fears of failure and removes the poison of perfectionism. There, they find a list of qualities and character traits that we can work diligently to attain, through prayer and obedience, that will insure our effectiveness as Christ followers.
