Meeting People Head On with Ray Schmautz 22: The One Prayer God Will ALWAYS Say YES To!

[display_podcast] In our last podcast, I talked about God’s commandment to grow closer to Him and to be filled with the Holy Spirit.  This week, we’re going to look at what the Bible says we should do in order to live in a spiritually healthy manner. Just like breathing, we need to “exhale” or get rid of all the things that might hinder us; and “inhale” or bring in the things that God has for us to draw us closer to Him. 1 John 5:14-15 says this:This is the confidence which we have before H … [Read more...]

[display_podcast]From Certified Life Coach Dixie Diamanti, Author of Climbing Out of the Box and Fifty Ways to Meet Your Lover: My prayer: "I've been in a slump Lord and wondering why I feel bored with my life and finally realizing the One I miss is You.

Meeting People Head On with Ray Schmautz 21: Fill ‘Er Up!

[display_podcast] It’s impossible to lead a Christian life if the Holy Spirit isn’t empowering you.
