I have had the phrase, “Lean in” going off in my brain for a few days now. I was reminded of this because a friend of mine has been having some difficulty in her life and it reminded me of times when I had difficulty. Our circumstances are a little different but the way we need to go about them is the same – Lean into Jesus!
This has been a difficult lesson for me to learn (and I’m still learning it) because I’m a runner. When things get bad and there isn’t anything I can do to fix it, I take off. After all my thought was, “if I can’t fix it, what is the use.” But God wants us to LEAN IN when these things happen. I’ve been practicing this along with WAITING on the Lord for an answer (whew is that a hard one!).
This video is short but it is EXACTLY what I discovered the hard way and I want to share with you in hopes you won’t go through the tough times I went through as a result of not leaning in. Enjoy!
Lately God has had me look at suffering – what it means to suffer, where He is in the suffering, and why He allows suffering. Believe it or not, it has been a joyous unpacking of this subject. It has made me truly understand how God sees me and who He is.
I know I’ve kind of been stuck the past couple Friday’s with “The Chat with Priscilla” but she has such great guests and such relevant topics that I can’t help but share. Get a tissue, and glean from these videos what you might need in these moments in your life.
These two videos are AWESOME! In our Sunday School class we have, several times, talked about God using something we see as horrible for our good. Katherine Wolf’s life is a beautiful picture of this truth. Enjoy!
I found this video while I was looking for something about making time for God. I loved how she explains different ways we can spend time with God. Our devotion time can be creative and different. As long as we are getting some time in to get filled up – it doesn’t matter how its done only that it gets done.
This was geared toward busy moms but can be applied to anyone who finds themselves with limited time because of busy schedules. Enjoy!
I have always loved listening to Ravi Zacharius. He requires for one to REALLY listen. He is incredibly educated and in order to keep up, you have to pay attention. I like that.
This video is a Q&A for answering some of the objections to the Christian Faith. I’m sure if you have witnessed to anyone, you may have become stumped with a question that was asked. This may help. Get your pen and paper out and take notes or save this video and go through it. I hope you enjoy it as I have.
While I was searching today for the video to put up for Video Friday, I had the idea that I wanted to find a video about being committed to ministry. To be honest, my thoughts have been on this subject matter on and off for awhile.
God had a different plan.
What I didn’t know is I needed to laugh. I needed to feel happiness and not to be so serious. This video is pretty funny – I hope you enjoy it.
I find this is not the easiest topic to discuss. Our culture is all about not assigning roles to women or men and if someone does try to do that…wow do we hear an uproar! However, scripture speaks specifically what the role of a woman, wife, husband, and father is and what it isn’t. If we as Christians believe the Bible is the inherent word of God, then we must believe everything in it is true, alive, and applicable for today.
This video is one of the best videos I’ve seen on explaining the roles of men and women. It’s short, and not exhaustive but it gets to the meat. Can a woman assume the role of pastor or elder? Can a woman biblically teach men? Watch this video and find out the answers.
