    Are you a planner, mapping everything out on your calendar with color-coded labels and all?Or are you more of a laid back, take it as it comes type of gal?Regardless of which camp you find yourself in, as the year comes to a close (and boy I am happy about that), I have started to think about how I want to intentionally plan for 2021! I am asking myself the question "Am I still pursuing God in my everyday life and if not, what changes do I need to make?"In this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I change gears and decided to use this time to share with you how I go about planning for the coming year while reflecting on God's faithfulness in the past. The Equipped: Life on Purpose resource was something I created for myself nearly a decade ago, and this year, in the midst of all the craziness of life, God's prompted me to pull it out, put it to work, and encourage you to do the same. You can grab it here. If you're craving some structure seasoned with a whole lot of grace for living intentionally in the year t

    Embracing Uncomfortable

    24/08/2020 Duração: 49min

    Comfortable is probably the last word that anyone would use to describe the year 2020. It has been unpredictable, heartbreaking, confusing, and all around uncomfortable. While we have learned how to navigate life with masks and social distancing, embracing the new and the uncomfortable is not something that many, myself included, have done easily.In the latest episode of the More to Be Podcast, I had the opportunity to connect with Dr. Deb Gorton, a clinical psychologist and and graduate school program director, to discuss her latest book “Embracing Uncomfortable: Facing our Fears while Pursuing our Purpose" and how in a pre- and post-covid world we can embrace God's purpose for our lives.For over 14 years, Dr. Deb Gorton has been practicing, directing, building, developing, equipping, and partnering.

    08/07/2020 Duração: 18min

    Abba, Father. Is that who God is to you? Or do you find that think of Him as your eternal Father is challenging in like of your experience with your earthly father. It's understandable, of course, when the very human that is supposed to model for us unconditional love and protection and provision fails in any regard.Whether our daddy's ability fell short of our expectations and needs . . .Whether our daddy's intentions were marred by abuse, neglect, or abandonment . . .Whether our daddy's example conveyed Christ-with-skin-on love and grace and kindness.One thing is true: Our earthly dad is not a full representation of our heavenly one.God has a significant fatherly role to play in all our lives, when He adopts us into His family by our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.It is a role defined by His love and protection, provision and purpose.Continue reading this devotional and watch the video teaching for this episode in the Encounter God Bible Study.

    Have you ever noticed how God will bring something up again and again when He wants you to learn something?So if you find it strange that we're studying about Jesus as our Messiah this week, compared to Him being our Savior last week, you might be feeling like this is a bit redundant. I challenge you, however, to take a pause and consider what more God would like to speak to you about as you reflect on who Jesus is to you.Is Jesus your Messiah . . . your deliverer . . . the one who preserves you? Continue reading this devotional and watch the video teaching for this episode in the Encounter God Bible Study.

    Are you struggling to understand the season you are in, especially as your faith matures and your life priorities shift?Do you wonder what steps to take next or what to turn to as you navigate midlife?While it is easy to find books and blogs and podcasts focusing on parenting tips, marriage, addictions, and hangups, it is noticeably lacking in resources for those entering their second half of life.On the latest More to Be Podcast Episode, we're joined by Michelle Van Loon, who gives us context for understanding the different stages of life, especially in terms of spiritual growth, and how to seek out Biblical wisdom for even the most confusing and challenging circumstances.If you find yourself wondering how to persevere, questioning what comes next, or wondering what Scripture says about your current stage of life, then this latest podcast is for you.Since coming to faith in Christ at the tail end of the Jesus Movement, Michelle Van Loon's Jewish heritage, spiritual hunger, and storyteller's sensibilities hav

    Who is your savior? Is your Savior the Son of God, sent into this world to rescue you and set you apart and redeem your life for His glory?Or do you function as your own savior, taking upon yourself every problem and issue and need, believing it is all up to you?If we are struggling to yield our life to the Savior of the world, we've got to take a holy pause to consider why? Is it because we don't know how to release the tension and anxiety we feel in us without trying to be in control of everyone and everything?Continue reading this devotional and watch the video teaching for this episode in the Encounter God Bible Study.

    Do you really believe that the Lord is good? Or do you find yourself in a situation in which you question God's goodness because of your circumstances or past experiences?It is all too easy to judge God through the lens of our feelings and experiences. We evaluate His goodness based on the way He answers our prayers instead of recognizing how He can still keep His promises even when the outcome doesn't match the one we had designed in our head.A cancer diagnosis . . . and we wonder if God is still good.A failed relationship . . . and we wonder if God is still good.A rejected proposal or job application . . . and we wonder f God is still good.A misunderstood intention . . . and we wonder if God is still good.Maybe we wonder if He was ever good.Continue reading this devotional and watch the video teaching for this episode in the Encounter God Bible Study.

    Does it feel like God is merciful and compassionate as you look around our world? Or do you find yourself questioning who God is? And what He allows?It is understandable, in light of the chaos we find ourselves in. It is not just COVID-19 that has sent our world into a tailspin, but the aftermath of George Floyd's death and the peaceful protests against racism, which have turned into riots and violence throughout the United States.If you've listened to the More to Be Podcast episode with Barb Roose on Grace and Truth, you know that what is missing from our world is deeply rooted in our self-focus and neglect to pursue loving one another as made in the image of God. That kind of love oozes mercy and compassion. Continue reading this devotional and watch the video teaching for this episode in the Encounter God Bible Study.

    Ahmaud Arbery.Breanna Taylor.George Floyd.Maybe you're well-acquainted with these names. Maybe you are not, because you're like me and tend to shelter yourself from the painful realities in this world, overwhelmed by what you can't do to solve the greatest atrocities. But something in me has flipped in the last few weeks.Silence is no longer an acceptable response.Maybe it's because I'm learning how to step out of my fear and willing to be more vulnerable, admitting what I do not know and what I can not solve.These three names represent three human beings made in the image of God, murdered in the United States in the last three months, because of the color of their skin. Yes, racism still exists.In this special release More to Be Podcast, I invited my friend Barb Roose to join me to begin the conversation. It's time we learn, as believers, how to respond as to these horrific events and moreover, how to bring an end to racism. The conversation was inspired by one of Barb's recent blog posts "From a Black Frien

    God is the Holy One of Israel | Encounter God #21

    27/05/2020 Duração: 12min

    Have you ever thought of God as the Holy One of Israel? Can you think of any time this name of God was used in prayer with other believers or even in a modern-day worship song?Wouldn't you agree that the Holy One of Israel is a name that has special meaning to God's people of long ago but may feel foreign to us?We're out of touch with this side of God's character and nature, as we don't identify as the people of Israel. We're not wandering through physical deserts, following a pillar of cloud by day and fire by night, even though there isn't a soul among us who hasn't experienced their one spiritual, emotional, or physical wilderness season.When we journey through hardships, it is not likely that we'll call upon the Holy One of Israel. Continue reading this devotional and watch the video teaching for this episode in the Encounter God Bible Study.
