A Practical Resource to Battle Fear - Ep. 72
September 21, 2021 - 30 min
In our ongoing battle against anxiety and fear, it can be challenging to find resources that are filled with truth and presented from a place of understanding and grace. It can be even more challenging to find biblically sound, heart-safe resources presented from a strong and mature Christ-follower who understands, because they’ve shared similar struggles. This is why books like Grace Fox’s Moving from Fear to Freedom: A Woman’s Guide to Peace in Every Situation are so invaluable. Written by a career global worker who could’ve easily lost her newborn daughter, Grace knows what it’s like to wrestle with the deep truths of God during times of intense fear.

If we want to experience the supernatural, courageous, and history-making life God calls us to, we’ll need to remain yielded to and dependent on the Holy Spirit within.

When Our Savior Calls Us Out of Our Comfort Zones (Yeshua) - Ep. 67
August 17, 2021 - 16 min
We often believe that comfort and being comfortable is the ultimate blessing of God. The truth is, the blessing of God is often on the other side of leaving our comfort zones.

In those places of uncertainty, our faith is both revealed and grown. That is where we discover Yeshua, our Rescuer, is always faithful and we always have victory in Him.

Do you ever feel like you’re God’s “problem child?” The one who never seems to be getting any better and who continues to struggle with the same sins and setbacks?
