Episode 100-Listen to God

Why don’t we listen to God? The other day I was jogging in the water and pondering what I would share on this podcast. I had been reading Romans 11 for several days but I had decided I was going to go on to do the next podcast on Romans 12 because I understood how it fit into my journey.

Episode 99-Grace is Amazing

God’s grace is many-faceted because it is as vast as God. Grace is the DNA of God. It’s what He is made of. The grace of God cannot be explained or contained in a few words, but I see at least seven words that help us understand how grace operates in our lives.

Episode 98-How Beautiful

Episode 98-How Beautiful

“How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” It’s right there in Romans 10:15 NIV.

Episode 93-What is My Destiny?

Episode 93-What is My Destiny?

In Romans 8:28, we might focus on the word good thinking this means that nothing bad will ever happen to us. So we think, why do we need to pray if everything is going to work out anyway? Why do we need to try to do what He wants for our lives, if it’s going to turn out great whatever we do? Still we realize that bad things have happened to us, so what does this verse really mean anyway?
