Blessed is Our Lord God Almighty

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1.

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie Ratzlaff and Sharon Hoskins give encouragement in knowing that God is in control of all things.
Even though we face many emotional challenges in adversities, we have no need to despair; God is still on the throne.
Even though we may face the enemy, we have nothing to fear; God has defeated him.
Even though we face uncertainty, we have certainty because God is in control.
So join in the conversation as we discuss how Blessed is Our Lord God Almighty.

Sufficiency of Scriptures Part 3

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Mentoring Matters, Janie Ratzlaff, and Sharon Hoskins discuss why Christians are deciding that the scriptures aren’t enough.

 

 

There are many Christian authors who give great commentary and share wonderful messages, but God wrote one book and it’s the greatest book ever written. The attack on that one Book; God’s written word, is at the core of changing our belief system (worldview).
Being a student of the Word is vital to establishing and maintaining a Biblical Worldview. Discussing the practical application of the scriptures to our hearts and lives.
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 lives.

Blessed Are Those Who Persevere

“Blessed is the man that endures temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to them that love Him” James 1:12

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the importance of persevering through the struggles that we face each day so that we are better prepared for the struggles we will face tomorrow.
We’ve all heard the reference that we are in the Lord’s Army, so it’s time we get prepared in boot training to be the warriors that God needs. It won’t be easy, we will need to be strong and very courageous, we will need to persevere and God will lead us to victory.
So join in the conversation as we discover how Blessed Are Those Who Persevere.

Sufficiency of Scripture Part 2

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Mentoring Matters, Janie Ratzlaff, and Sharon Hoskins discuss how the Bible is being attacked by the cultural belief system. Could it be that having the gift of God’s word has been taken for granted for far too long?

 

 

Changing the scriptures, deleting passages, removing words, are all things that Christians have discussed over the years. Now, we may find that even owning a Bible is a privilege. How often we have neglected to grab God’s word and hold it dear to our hearts as a precious treasure.
As you listen, we hope that you will examine your foundation to find where you can be strengthened in Christ and discover how truly sufficient the scriptures are for your daily lives.

Blessed Are Those with a Warrior’s Heart

“Awake you that sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light. See that you walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil” Ephesians 5:14-16

 

 

This week on Sharin Hearts Woman to Woman, Jaine and Sharon speak words of encouragement to the Christians.
It is time for us to be strong and very courageous. We need to rise up from our slumber, wake up to the truth of scripture, and grow up in Christ so that we will be able to stand for the days are evil.
Evil has always been present but as the church slept the enemy has walked right in and taken charge. Fighting without Christ will always leave us in defeat, and if we have sin in our lives we are powerless against the enemy.
So, join in the conversation as we examine how blessed are those with a warrior’s heart.

 

 

The Sufficiency of Scripture Part 1

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Mentoring Matters, Janie Ratzlaff and Sharon Hoskins discuss the great foundational facts of scripture that will highlight the basis of scripture as the final authority for our lives.

 

If faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God and the word of God is the written scriptures called the Bible, then it makes sense that the Bible should be our final authority.

However, if the Gallup Poll is true, and 76% of Christians believe that the scriptures are flawed and can’t be trusted then that would explain why the church is not effective in changing the world as the disciples did.
