The Condition of Our Heart

“Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting” Psalm 139:23-24

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss matters of the heart. As we read the words David prayed to the Lord, we to can ask God to search our hearts and thoughts to expose the things that we are unaware of.
When our eyes are opened we can see clearly, repent and be lead in His way. So, join in the conversation as we allow these words to be our prayer today and examine the condition of our hearts.

Culture Invades the Church

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Mentoring Matters, Janie and Sharon discuss how the world’s culture has invaded the church.

 

 

In Mark 16:15, Jesus says, “Go you into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

We have become comfortable with simply inviting people to church so they can hear the gospel rather than being responsible to share the gospel ourselves.
As you listen, find why we have become afraid to share in the marketplace.
Examine your foundation to find where you can be strengthened in Christ. Using God’s word to apply Biblical principles, position, instruction, and conformation of Biblical truth and develop Biblical-based beliefs.

Reminded to Remember

“Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though you know them, and be established in the present truth” 2 Peter 1:12.

 

 

This week on Sharin Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the importance of remembering.
Peter emphasizes how he will continually remind the readers to remember. Throughout Paul’s writings, we find that he repeatedly reminds us of truths that the Lord wants us to remember.
How many times have you heard something that you “know” but have forgotten? How many times have you shared with someone a truth, only to hear them say, “I know”? Or, you heard yourself saying, “I know” to a truth?
We all have things that we need to be reminded of and strengthened in each day.
So, join in the conversation as we discover the importance of being reminded to remember.

Remembering and Forgetting

“Remember therefore how you have received and heard, and hold fast, and repent” Revelation 3:3

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the topic of remembering.
There was a time that many of us use to remember phone numbers and birthdays, but today technology does that for us. We now live in the “information age” and sometimes we can get information overload.
We are encouraged to find out that God created us to hold only so much information so dementia may not be the problem, maybe our brain is forgetting things that are not relevant in order to protect us from overload.
So, join in the conversation as we learn more about remembering and forgetting.

Bless The Lord O My Soul

“Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name” Psalm 103:1
This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the importance of praising the Lord in the storms of life.
There are many perplexities that we are all facing in the midst of multiple unknowns. Fears are griping our hearts and we need a reset of faith. It seems the negative is what we focus on and talk about because we are overwhelmed.
Let’s be encouraged to praise the Lord and be strengthened in faith.
So, join in the conversation as we Bless the Lord O My Soul.

Blessed Are Those That Wait On The Lord

Isaiah 30:18 “ Therefore the Lord will wait that He may be gracious to you: and therefore He will be exalted, that He may have mercy on you. For the Lord is a God of justice; Blessed are all those who wait for Him.”

 

 

In the times we live it is much harder to wait and be still than to work and be busy. If there is uncertainty, WAIT. Always, if you have doubt WAIT.  Do not force yourself into action. If you have restraint in your spirit, wait until all is clear.

Waiting for God is not laziness, going to sleep, or abandonment of effort. Waiting for God means, activity under command, readiness for a new command that may come or the ability to do nothing until the command is given. To wait is to live a life of desire toward God, delight in Him, dependence on Him, and devotedness to Him. He is the reason we are willing to wait in life that we may know Him in a deep abiding relationship and be prepared to worship, work, and wonder at the grace that is ours throughout eternity.

On the other hand, the world wants us to be getting instead of giving, organizing rather than agonizing, playing instead of praying, selfish in place of service, worrying and not worshipping, anxious rather than patience, loathing replacing loving, working preferably to weeping, whining instead of waiting on God.

Follow the path that is prepared for us in waiting on God by being still before Him. Jeremiah 6:16
