Blessed Are the Lonely Hearts

“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth” Psalm 46:10.

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon take a look at the heart of King David; who was a man after God’s own heart.
God prepared David in solitude and loneliness, building him little by little through adversity and trials. He gained the courage to stand against fear, he learned to hear God’s voice in the stillness of aloneness, and his faith was made strong through the dependence he found in Christ.
God prepares us the same way He did David; we need only to surrender to the conditions in which He places us to be molded.
So join in the conversation as we find how blessed are the lonely hearts.

Believing Lies as Truth

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Mentoring Matters, Janie and Sharon expose some of the lies that we have believed as truth. The lies that we believe affect our lives as though they are true, even though they are a lie.

 

 

In the culture we are living in today, lies spread quickly and the truth is suppressed. “In the last days, perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own sleeves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce-breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God” 2 Timothy 3:1-6.
Grounding ourselves in the truth of scripture is a sure way that we can protect our hearts and lives from being deceived with lies.
As you listen, we pray that you will examine your heart to find where you may have believed lies as truth. Allow God to reveal, renew, and restore your foundation in Christ.

Blessed Are Those Who Overcome Fear with Faith

“Lord, how are they increased that trouble me! many are they that rise up against me. Many there be which say of my soul, there is no help for him in God. Selah. But You, O Lord, are a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of my head. I cried to the Lord with my voice, and He heard me out of His holy hill. Selah” Psalm 3:1-4.

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss how we can overcome fear with faith. When fear overtakes us, then all our decisions, actions, words, and behavior comes from an emotional place that can paralyze our hearts and minds.
Faith can overcome fear; when fear comes knocking, let faith answer the door and say, there’s no room in here for you. This is a means by which we can guard our hearts against the subtlety of the enemy who whats to destroy our witness and fear is one of his most successful weapons.
So, join in the conversation as we discover how to overcome fear with faith.

Secular Humanism

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Mentoring Matters, Janie and Sharon discuss how the world’s culture invades the church through each individual Christian. We are the body of Christ and the Church of God. When we think about the culture invading the church, it is not something that we are learning from the pulpit as teachings. It is invading individual hearts as we go about our daily lives.

 

 

Cultural views usually end with “ism”. Modernism, Rationalism, Socialism, etc all derive from Humanism. Secular Humanism is a religion that deifies man and dethrones God; thinking humans are superior to God.  It is a belief that man can fix man.
Secular Humanism’s doctrine says that we need to do away with history, traditions, and the things of old because we have a better way to do things now. We have evolved. The Bible is out of date and God is part of history, therefore; they are no longer needed.
Christians are influenced by the world’s views (the isms). We are innocently believing the “good-sounding” things, living by them, and teaching them to others not realizing that they are an “ism” that deifies man and dethrones God.
As you listen, we hope that you will examine your heart to find where you may have believed in the doctrine of Secular Humanism. Allow God to reveal, renew, and restore your foundation in Christ.

Sufficiency of Scripture Part 4

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Mentoring Matters, Janie Ratzlaff and Sharon Hoskins discuss the word of God as being Jesus Christ as described in the Gospel of John Chapter One.

 

 

Renewing our minds in the scriptures is actively growing in our relationship with the Lord. So, as Christians, if we are neglecting the word, then we are neglecting Jesus. Therefore we think that we can change the hard sayings of God’s Word (Jesus) to make us feel better, but Malachi 3:6 says, “For I am the Lord, I change not.” But, if we can’t change the hard sayings of God’s Word (Jesus) and refuse to hear them, then we become offended. Jesus said, “Blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in Me” Matthew 11:6.
As you listen, we hope that you will examine your heart to find where you
can be strengthened in Christ and discover how truly sufficient the scriptures are for your daily life.

Blessed Are Those Who Fear the Lord

“Blessed is every one that fears the Lord; that walks in His ways” Psalm 128:1.

 

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss how to overcome the emotional fears that many Believers are facing today.
When we walk in the fear of the Lord, we have nothing to fear. The adversity brings opportunity for our faith and trust in the Lord to be deepened.
We hardly recognize the subtle ways that emotional fears can grab ahold of our life. We become paralyzed and begin to crumble but if we could recognize the subtlety of fear we can grab back ahold of faith and trust the Lord who loves us.
So, join in the conversation as we discover how blessed are those who fear the Lord.
