Blessed Is The Steadfast Heart

I Corinthians 15:57 and 58 “But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore, my Beloved, be STEADFAST, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not vain in the Lord.” 

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss a steadfast heart. The heart has many descriptions of how it functions for healthy living in our bodies. It must be constant in its labor of faithfully pumping lifeblood through our arterial system. Likewise, our inner being also needs a steadfast function. There are special qualities that are evidenced in character when we understand the attributes of steadfastness. 

We will examine several lives that show us living examples of steadfastness and how steadfastness is developed, how it is defined as, firm, fixed in place, constancy, resolute, not fickle, or wavering. Has the ability to resist. It is the firmness of mind or purpose. 

To lack in this attribute is to weaken your ability to fight battles of life, whether in the mind or encountering the landmines of life.

Come join us in the conversation as we prepare to build this quality character so your labor will have a purpose in life.

Blessed Are Those Who Endure To the End

John 13:1 tells us the love from Jesus’ heart endures and abides with those He loves until the End.

 

 

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon review the promise of Matthew 24:13 where Jesus declares that, “He who endures to the end shall be saved.”

If we lack understanding of the LOVE of GOD in these uncertain days, we will find ourselves developing bad attitudes of passivity and indifference in our minds and hearts to our world around us and those living with us.

God’s love is ETERNAL and how do we choose to apply that love in daily living? God loves us with the SAME LOVE as He loves His Son. How we perceive and live in HIS love can decide our Destination as well as our Destiny.

So join in the conversation to see how we have been grafted into His Everlasting Love that never fails.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

 

Blessed Are the Unoffended

“These things I have spoken to you, that you should not be offended” John 16:1
This week on Sharin Hearts Woman to Woman, Jaine and Sharon discuss the topic of offenses and answer the question: What does it mean to be offended?
What are the many ways that we can get offended and how does that offense relate to God? If I am offended by a friend, family, community member, or situation does that mean I am offended by God?
When we understand the subtle ways we are letting offenses take place, we will have a better understanding of how to recognize them before they take hold of our hearts.
Hard hearts are usually held together by the mortar of offenses but when we refuse to be offended that’s when God is able to mold our hearts into His image.

Blessed Are Those Who Trust in the Lord

“Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence” Jer. 17:7.
This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon discuss the importance of trusting in the Lord. During the uncertain times that we are facing in our world today, it is vital that we, as believers, keep our focus on the Lord our God.
We can’t lose heart when things don’t turn out the way we want or even the way we believe God wants. When we pray, we must remember to pray for God’s will and not our own.
God is still on the throne.
So join in the conversation as we discuss how blessed are those who trust in the Lord.

This week on Sharin’ Hearts Woman to Woman, Janie and Sharon continue to discuss this call to repentance that we are hearing in America.

In Revelation 2 & 3 we find letters to the churches that commend, correct, and call for repentance; with a warning to always have an ear to hear what the Spirit is saying to us.
