My Armor 32: How Do We Get To Heaven?

My-Armor-Thumbnail-Small-2

[display_podcast] As I recently read 1 Peter 2, I realized Peter’s main point is this: Buck up, Cowboy! Figure it out! And just like I discovered in James’ epistle, there are things both in James and in Peter’s letters that are hard to hear, but very important for each of us to come face-to-face with. Here’s what I mean:So get rid of your feelings of hatred. Don’t just pretend to be good! Be done with dishonesty and jealousy and talking about others behind their backs. (1 Peter 2:1) That is … [Read more...]

Reflections of Grace 107: Hearing God’s Voice

ReflectionsOfGrace_thumbnail

[display_podcast] I felt as if I was going through the motions of life, but without the joy.  “Lord, where is my joy today.... I was walking along a river, and my surroundings were beautiful, but I just wasn’t feeling it.  I knew Jesus was there, but I was yearning for something more this day and wasn’t sure what. I felt cantankerous and out of sorts.  I just kept walking.  All at once, Jesus was on the scene.  Activity was going on all around me, but it was as if I was encapsulated in the sweet … [Read more...]

My Armor 19: How 2 Pray

My-Armor-Thumbnail-Small-2

[display_podcast] So, I run the heater during the day and my air conditioner at night.  I think I sleep better when I’m in a cryogenic state.  What this turns into is a great night’s sleep for me, but I wake up in an icebox, so I have to run the heater full-tilt when I wake up.  I don’t know why I sleep so much better when it’s cold.  Maybe that’s why people enjoy camping so much. Not that any of this has to do with our topic at all.  Because this week’s topic is prayer. If you’re not doing it … [Read more...]

Reflections of Grace 106: Entering 2016 with Faith and Assurance

ReflectionsOfGrace_thumbnail

As we welcome 2016 in I want to speak to you about the many seasons of our lives...When we start to realize that God is involved with every aspect of our lives, and is acutely aware of every step we take because He has a plan for each of us, then we can rest in the spot we are in until that plan is revealed to us. We talk about “waiting on the Lord,” but sometimes I think we really don’t know how to do that. Waiting is waiting—being patient while God reveals His plan for your life.There are m … [Read more...]

I’m Waiting 13: Our Choices ALWAYS Come with Consequences, with Ricky Garza

I'm Waiting Square v4

[display_podcast] I have never met anyone in my life who said, “Dang! I wish that I had slept with more people before I got married!” It’s always, “Dang… I wish I had waited”, myself included. Yet, we often receive letters saying that our “I’m Waiting” message is not a healthy message to tell kids today. And I just don’t get it. We ask kids to stay off of alcohol and drugs because if their dangers. We tell them don’t drink and drive because it’s deadly. We tell them don’t smoke because of the … [Read more...]

I’m Waiting 12: A Fatherly Role Model & the Decision to Wait, with Ricky Garza

I'm Waiting Square v4

[display_podcast] This week, we continue our discussion with Ricky Garza. Ricky offers his insight on the extreme importance of a father’s role in the house. Study after study reveals that a dad’s role in a cohesive home is actually more important than a mother’s role, since a dad teaches a boy how to be a man and teaches his daughters how to have a relationship with a man, which transcend to healthier adulthoods for both. That being said, it’s no secret that the healthiest family structure is … [Read more...]
