God the Father Is Concerned about You
April 26, 2022 - 12 min
There is never a moment we are not cared for by God and watched over by him. Do you know this? Do you believe it? Do you need to spend time meditating on God’s compassion and attentiveness?

Sometimes when God feels distant or unconcerned, he might be giving us an opportunity to grow up.

God the Father Is Merciful
April 13, 2022 - 11 min
Our sin requires payment. Because of God’s mercy (he does not give us what we deserve) he does the unthinkable: he spares us by sacrificing his own son for our sins. What would motivate a holy God to send his perfect, holy Son to die for a sinful people? Love. His compassionate, unexplainable, radical love for us compels him to be merciful to us.

In this episode, Kia covers:

- God’s mercy toward women in the Bible.
- Kia asks: where do you need to take how of God’s mercy in your life?

God the Father Is Good
February 15, 2022 - 12 min
For those who believe that if there is a God, he cannot possibly be good - Kia walks through three assumptions of this line of thinking:

Assumptions:

1. Good things should only happen to good people, and bad things should only happen to bad people.

2. We have a common understanding with God of who is good and bad.

3. Things that are bad can never result in a good outcome.

By exploring these assumptions, we can come to a right view of God’s goodness.

God the Father Affirms Us
February 01, 2022 - 14 min
The words of our biological fathers can uplift us, or wound us deeply. For those of us with father wounds, we usually wrestle with deeply hurtful words or an absence of affirmation. This is why it is essential that we look to our Father for affirmation. For every woman who has felt unseen or invisible or unaffirmed by their biological father, God says over and over in his Word: I affirm you.

Scripture Referenced:
Psalm 139

God the Father Is Faithful
January 19, 2022 - 14 min
