…THERE IS NO OTHER COMMANDMENT GREATER THAN THESE.
Happy New Year! We hope 2018 is off to a great start.
This week, Heather and Diana consider that the greatest resolution you can make this year, and the years to come, is to give all your focus, all your devotion, all your energy, and all your discipline to loving Jesus. They unpack and discuss the powerful words of Jesus in Mark 12 to better understand how to make our relationship with the Lord our first priority.
REST IN THE LORD AND WAIT PATIENTLY FOR HIM; DO NOT FRET BECAUSE OF HIM WHO PROSPERS IN HIS WAY…
This week, Heather and Diana discuss how to combat the frustration that may come when it seems that God is slow in fulfilling His promises or when those who are not following the way of Jesus are “prospering.” Gaining wisdom regarding God’s divine economy will encourage us and give us a new perspective of prosperity and wealth. Looking to the Word of God, we find that peace is the eternal inheritance of those who fear and follow the Lord, which far outweighs the temporary riches of this world.
…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!
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.
…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.
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.
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
