"The Power of Our Words" w/ Joyce Heard
Joyce Heard is back!  I know you are excited. She is here to challenge and edify us with the questions: What are you doing with your tongue? With the words that you speak? Are we building up or breaking down? Are we harming or helping? Discouraging or encouraging? Are we speaking words that bring darkness or light? What our world needs now more than ever are words that bring life. And Joyce shows us the way. Listen. Share with a friend. And start speaking uplifting words to those around you. Who knows, God may use you to change a life.  Proverbs 10:20-21 ; Psalm 81:10; Luke 6:45; Ephesians; Colossians 4:6; Isaiah 51:16

Where is God in the Midst of Tragedy?
Even more, tragedy has happened in the world since we chatted last. I want to share more hope and healing in the midst of this. I am sharing wisdom from "A Grace Disguised" by Jerry Sittser. And, of course, from the word of God. Share, like, and tell a friend. Let's share hope and healing amid these awful tragedies.John 16:33 “I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-5 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ.” 33:27 The eternal God is your refuge,
    and his everlasting arms are under you. Isaiah 60:19-20  "…for the Lord your God will be your everlasting light,
    and your God will be your glory. …For the Lord will be your everlasting light.
    Your days of mourning will come to an end." 1 Peter 5:10 "And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."

Life Stuff!
Where are my procrastinators out there? Whoop Whoop! I am the Queen procrastinator and normally all goes well with that method. But (sigh) every once and while it catches up with me:)! But hopefully my Plan B is God's Plan A and this short reflection will edify you and encourage you in the Lord. I pray, maybe even bring healing to your soul, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Don't forget to help me spread the word; like, comment, subscribe and share this Podcast so God's hope and healing can be known! Thank you and God Bless!  Scriptures: Exodus 34:5-9Amplified Bible 5 Then the Lord descended in the cloud and stood there with Moses as he proclaimed the Name of the Lord. 6 Then the Lord passed by in front of him, and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth (faithfulness); 7 keeping mercy and lovingkindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin; but He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting (avenging) the iniquity (sin, guilt) of the fathers upon the children and the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations [that is, calling the children to account for the sins of their fathers].” 8 Moses bowed to the earth immediately and worshiped [the Lord]. 9 And he said, “If now I have found favor and lovingkindness in Your sight, O Lord, let the Lord, please, go in our midst, though it is a stiff-necked (stubborn, rebellious) people, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us as Your possession.” Psalm 86:15English Standard Version 15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. Psalm 103:1-4English Standard Version 1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children's children, 18 to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments. 19 The Lord has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all. 20 Bless the Lord, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word! 21 Bless the Lord, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will! 22 Bless the Lord, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the Lord, O my soul! 1 John 4:7-11New Living Translation Loving One Another 7 Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. 8 But anyone who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 9 God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. 10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.

Jesus' Stress Management Plan
Happy Good Friday. Today we have part two of our Maundy Thursday episode. Thank you for your patience as I managed my stress well:)! Let's learn from the One who endured stress like no other, and thrived through it. For the list of the 12 stress management tips, please see the show notes from yesterday's episode. 4-14-22.

Maundy Thursday, Happy 2nd Anniversary, "I'm Not Ashamed of Jesus" day
Maundy Thursday. The day of great distress and agony for Jesus. What an amazing day to look at how the One who was stressed beyond anything we could ever imagine being stressed by, handled it. This marks the day of the display of servant hood and foretelling of what was to come, with Jesus washing the Disciples feet and His agony in the Garden of Gethsemane. In the garden, He pours out His heart, to the point of sweating blood, due the realization and weightiness of what is about to come. Who else to better learn from on how to handle life's toxic stressors than the one who bore it all? (We will unpack that tomorrow:). Also this day happens to be: "I am not ashamed of Jesus" day. So let's lift Him high; share His name and fame and maybe help someone get relief from their stress. You can do that through simple acts of love and care. Start by sharing with them this Podcast or others like it that bring the hope and healing that comes through Christ.  As we share Jesus's love, let's not forget to explain the fact that He freed us from our sin that is a death sentence, through His death and resurrection. The Good News of the Gospel is that we can choose His death on the Cross as our payment. Then we have a 'get out of jail card' free from any penalty of sin and the access to be healed from the effects of sin!  Now if that doesn't relieve stress, I'm not sure what can!  Thank you faithful followers for helping "Have You Not Heard?" thrive. Through your listening, sharing, rating, reviewing and encouragement,  God is using this little Podcast to share His hope and healing to a hurting world. Let's keep on keeping on together and help His word spread.  Resources: *The Gospel according to Mark *John 13:34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another." *Dr. Jim Denison, "The Daily Article" 4-14-22 *"The Hour Had Come" by David Mathis (www.desiringgod.org) *"What is Maundy Thursday and Why do Christians Celebrate It?" (www.crosswalk.com)  Maundy Thursday Prayer: Lord God, You sent your Son into the world, And before his hour had come, He washed his disciples’ feet. You had given all things into his hands. He had come from you, and was going to you, And what did he do? He knelt down on the floor, And washed his friends’ feet. He was their teacher and their Lord, Yet he washed their feet. Lord God, help us learn from his example; Help us to do as he has done for us. The world will know we are his disciples If we love one another. Strengthen our hands and our wills for love And for service. Keep before our eyes the image of your Son, Who, being God, became a Servant for our sake. All glory be to him who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, One God, now and forever. Amen. Jesus’ Stress Management Plan 1. He was empowered by the Holy Spirit (Mark 1:9-13) 2. He knew who He was(his identity) and whose He was, as a result, knew His authority. (Mark 1:22),(Mark 1:11)(Mark 2:17), (Mark 2:10) 3. He lived in Community(Mark 3:13-19; Mark 6:7) 4. He spent time alone with God in Prayer (Mark 1:35; Mark 3:13, Mark 6:45-46, Mark 9:2) 5. He knew how to spend His energy(Mark 1:35-39) 6. He was led by the Spirit and His Father; He was not dictated by the circumstances or the expectations of people. (Mark 2:27-28)(Mark 3:1-6)(Mark 1:37-38, Mark 3:32-35)(Mark 9:14-29),(John 15:19) 7. He operated out of Faith, not fear. (Mark 10:32-34) 8. He depended on God to meet His needs and the needs of other’s. (Mark 8:1-9) 9. He lived with an attitude of humility and servanthood.(Mark 10:31; Mark 10:44)(Mark 8:35; John 13:1-17) 10.He lived authentically. Poured His heart out to God(Mark 14:32-36) ; received care from others(Mark 15:40) 11. Lived in Forgiveness (Mark 11:25)( Luke 6:27-31)(Luke 23:34) 12. He was motivated by LOVE!!!!!

Thinking can lead to Joy and Hope!
What you think becomes a belief, and your belief drives your feelings and actions. These lead to behaviors. And eventually, influence your destiny. Joy, encouragement, and hope from God’s truths are superpowers for our souls and insulate us against the wear and tear from the hardships and darkness that are swirling around us. You can learn to access How do we obtain this joy and hope and keep it when the arrows of darkness are flying around us? That’s what we are exploring today. Grab a friend and join in. Scripture: 2 Corinthians 10:5; Romans 12:2; Isaiah 30:15; Isaiah 1:18 10 Steps to help: 1. Think about what you are thinking about. 2. Be willing to seek the truth even if it clashes with your thoughts. 3. Decide if you will believe God's word or the other thoughts you are hearing/believing. Many of our beliefs come from childhood. Why am I still thinking this? 4. Remember that the temptation that got Adam and Eve kicked out of the garden (constant communion with God) was the 'tree of knowledge'. They wanted to know what God knew or thought they knew what was best. That is the root of original sin. Pride. “Pretensions that set themselves up against God”. 5. If what we think does not align with God's word/truth, are we willing to lay down our old thought and latch onto the new? 6. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Pray. Ponder. 7. Ask Holy Spirit to seal it in you. 8. Ask friends to help 9. Write it down. 10. Keep reading, singing, worshipping, praying, and remembering.

The Benefits of Awe, Resilience and PTG - Part Two
In the middle of a worldwide crisis, talking about awe, resilience, and PTG is more important than ever due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We need to combat the fear trying to take over our hearts and minds, whether it's covid crisis, racial injustices, political unrest, wars, and the effects of these wars. What we have is a spiritual battle—a battle over our faith. One of the main tactics our enemy uses against us is to implant fear in our hearts that can affect our faith. Despite this, humans, in general, are a resilient bunch. I've heard first-hand stories from war heroes from WWII, Vietnam, and other wars that are proof. We have accounts in the Bible of resilient folks. In short, God wired us to overcome. We need to be carriers of hope and resilience in this challenging time we are all going through, so let's continue to explore how we can exercise our resilience muscles, including awe, that leads us to PTG. Scriptures: Psalm 95:4-5; Psalm 25:3-9; Psalm 104:24-25; Job 38:1-4; Job 38-39; Job 40:4-5; Job 42: 2, 5-6; Psalm 19:1;Job 37: 14-16;  Resources: https://www.psychologicalscience.org/observer/all-about-awe https://www.nbcnews.com/better/lifestyle/why-scientists-say-experiencing-awe-can-help-you-live-your-ncna961826 https://firmisrael.org/learn/hebrew-meaning-of-yirah-what-connects-fear-and-awe/#:~:text=The%20Hebrew%20word%20translated%20into,respect%2C%20reverence%2C%20and%20worship https://www.quietrev.com/the-science-of-awe-and-why-it-matters-at-work/

Julie is back! She was with us on Episode 67 talking about "True Worship". What I love about Julie is her authentic and practical walk with God.

And then naturally lead others into that as you share the exciting (and challenging) ways that it is effecting your life.

True Love Part Three
Today my friend Kisa Raye (Season 1 Episode 22; Season 3 Episode 5)  and I are exploring the impact of God's love on our hearts and souls. Listen in as Kisa shares how meditating, pondering and unpacking the Cross has altered her life and those she has studied with. Knowledge in the New Testament emphasizes knowing God not simply as an intellectual apprehension, but a response to faith and an acceptance of Christ. It includes perceiving, learning, understanding, willing, performing, and experiencing. (https://www.biblestudytools.com/dictionary/know-knowledge/) This is the time for us to be shored up in Biblical knowledge of God's love. There is a hurting world out there who need God's love. Let's KNOW Him and His love so we can be conduits for others. Please help us get the word out by commenting, sharing and rating this Podcast.  Resources: "Matchless: The Life and Love of Jesus", Angie Smith  Tony Evans (The Tony Evans Bible Commentary, pg. 1377)  1 John 4:9-10 1. Love is visible 2. Love is an act of will 3. Love is sacrificial 4. Love serves the unlovable 5. Love addresses sin  “We have come to know [by personal observation and experience], and have believed [with deep, consistent faith] the love which God has for us. God is love, and the one who abides in love abides in God, and God abides continually in him.” 1 John 4:16 AMP "Therefore become imitators of God [copy Him and follow His example], as well-beloved children [imitate their father];  and walk continually in love [that is, value one another—practice empathy and compassion, unselfishly seeking the best for others], just as Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us, an offering and sacrifice to God [slain for you, so that it became] a sweet fragrance." Ephesians 5:1-2  "There is no fear in love [dread does not exist]. But perfect (complete, full-grown) love drives out fear, because fear involves [the expectation of divine] punishment, so the one who is afraid [of God’s judgment] is not perfected in love [has not grown into a sufficient understanding of God’s love]." 1 John 4:18

What is True Love according to the Bible? And how did Jesus exhibit it? We continue the exploration today. I am praying that Holy Spirit will speak to each heart listening and for our hearts to be expanded to receive God's Agape love. With that, then we will be enabled to love with genuine love and become vessels through whom God can use to accomplish His purposes here on earth. There is a world of hopeless, dying folks who need Jesus' love. Let's drink deep and then go and share!   Resources: Seedbed daily Text 7-24-21; Ephesians 3:16-19, Dan Wilt "The Holy Spirit Is Our Inner Energy Source" “Genuine Love is the only commodity that can be given away without ever running out”. (Understanding the Enneagram, pg 333) Commodores(aka: Lionel Richie), 1980, “Jesus is Love" Matthew 22:37-40 (NKJV)37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” (Deuteronomy 6:4-7) Romans: In the Grip of Grace Bible Study Session 5, (Max Lucado), Laurie McClure, OBS Leader Editor, FaithGateway.com We love because He first loved us. — 1 John 4:19 Matthew 5: 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. John 1: 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. Jesus saw their hearts: John 11,  Luke 5:22, John 2:22 Jesus forgives John 4, John 8 Luke 23:34 “And Jesus said, ‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.’” Jesus Spoke truth in love (kindness)- Nicodemus (John 3:3-21) Samaritan Women (John 4) John 12:44-50. Jesus Served: Heals the lame man and fed the 5,000;  the Crippled Man ,Luke 5; Heals the blind man; John 9. Jesus sacrificed: “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” Jesus spent time with the God in prayer; spent time with His Disciples and friends. Jesus taught/shared wisdom. John 10-17  Jesus comforts/compassionate: John 11: 17-35  "Jesus wept". Jesus received love: John 12 Jesus radically obeyed: John 12:49-50; John 19:17;John 19:30. Jesus said no: To Lazarus’ friends (John 11:1-8), , to His Disciples when He told them to feed the thousands (Mark 6: 35-37 …send them away to go get something to eat…Jesus: You give them something to eat.) “Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one” (Matthew 5:37). Jesus set boundaries: He gave us boundaries for our safety and well being: Go and sin no more; Don’t tell anyone about this healing; Get in the boat and go to the other side; remain in me; obey my commands. “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen” (Matthew 6:6).  Luke 5:16, John 14:6, Luke 16:13, John 5:44

True Love Part One
Here we go...diving into the deep waters of God's love. YIKES!! I am paddling in shallow waters and need Holy Spirit's help. That's GOOD NEWS, because He will take this little offering and do more with it than I ever could.  Our audacious goal for this mini-series:) is to have a true roadmap of what love really is. TODAY, we will look at 1. Biblical Love and 2. Why it matters.  Specifically 3 areas: 1. Receiving His love so we can share it with others, 2. So we can stand in truth, and 3. We can walk in obedience. Grab a friend and let's have fun learning about and growing in this unending journey into the heart of God's love. Where the Grand Adventure begins!  Scriptures: Exodus 34:6-7; Romans 5:5; 1 John 2:5; 1 John 4:16; 1 John 3:16; Ephesians 3:18-19; Romans 8:38-39;John 14:15; 1 John 5:2-3; John 14:21 Challenge: Study how Jesus loved in the Gospels: 1. How did He love? 2. What is He showing us about love?  3. What do you like or or not about His example? 4. Are you willing to conform your idea of what love is to His truth? Why or why not?

True Love: Introduction
Today we start unpacking Romans 12:9-21.  WOAH! It is jammed packed full of goodness. So much so, that I feel like we need to take our time and do a deep dive into the truths and other scriptures related.  So join me, invite a friend, and let's look at a TRUE roadmap of what love really is. We need this in our current culture, which is defining love individually, based on feelings, whims, and latest trends. God is love and He never changes. Let's follow Him into the 'gold mine' of love that can help change our hurting world, with His hope and healing.  1 John 4:1-12; 1 Corinthians 12:31(b)- 1 Corinthians 13

Transformed Minds and Hearts - Part Two
Well, my best laid plans obviously were not God's:)! After the last episode, He kept showing more about mind transformation in relation to Romans 12:1-2, so it became obvious we were supposed to continue to explore these scriptures and truths. I hope it is helpful to you on your journey of transformation. I'm praying it inspires you to invest the time to get vulnerable with the Lord (and other safe humans in your life), so that your thought life can become inline with His word. This is where the 'grand adventure' begins...let's do the work to bring more of God's Kingdom here on earth. Hope and healing to a hurting world.   Resources: "Surviving Religion 101", Michael J Kruger Romans 12:1-8; Psalm 139

Transformed Minds and Hearts
Romans 12 is a 'now' book! It elaborates how as redeemed people, through Christ, we are to live in an unredeemed world. Meaning a God-less world. A world that doesn't elevate God's existence and truths. Such a world can be confusing and make us unsure of how to act, what to think and who to believe. What I love about the Bible is it is as applicable today as it was all those thousands of years ago. Paul gives us direct and clear instructions on how to live in these times. And our motivation is God's mercy and the empowerment to live as redeemed people is through Christ's Grace. We all have access to it...we just need to utilize it. Let's make an impact on this hurting world with God's hope and healing through His truth and grace. Get your worship on!!!!  Mark 9:23-24 “‘If you can’?” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes. ”Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” Resources: Angel's Book, "The Perfecting Storm" : https://www.angelhdavis.com/resources Books/Websites on Truth of God's word: https://www.amazon.com/Evidence-That-Demands-Verdict-Life-Changing/dp/1401676707 https://www.alisachilders.com/blog https://leestrobel.com https://stores.kotisdesign.com/cooper-stuff/books https://www.amazon.com/Surviving-Religion-101-Letters-Christian/dp/1433572079 Tom Doyle, "The Incredible Journey" https://unchartedministries.com/book-store/

Parenting: Lessons from the Pandemic and Life in general w/Julie Smoak
Some of ya'll know Jules, on-air talent on The JOY FM. If you don't, you are in for a treat. Full of positive energy and great wisdom, Jules shares honestly and authentically about parenting challenges. She proclaims, 'she's not perfect and learning as she goes, as we all are'. In my opinion that's one of the reasons she is a wise sage regarding this journey! Jules shares lessons she's learned during the Pandemic and navigating social media and cultural issues with her kids. I would say, her best parenting tip is pointing her kids to Jesus and nurturing an authentic, informed relationship with Him. She shares so many nuggets of wisdom that will inspire and help you on your journey. Listen in and share with a friend. I know you will relate and be blessed!  Connect with Jules: www.thejoyfm.com; @thejoyfm (Instagram and Facebook) Instagram: @jules_show Facebook: @thejulesshow  www.thesocialdilemma.com

Suffering and Grief w/Connie Jones
Connie is back to share more about her journey of healing, specifically on the process which included suffering and grief. Wisdom she has learned through the darkness in her own life is now being paid forward to help others in theirs. We also discuss how loved ones and friends can best support someone who is going through suffering and grief. I know you will be edified and gain tools and hope for yourself as well as others. Please  rate, share and review this Episode so more people can hear the good news that is in Jesus. Let's partner together to help our hurting world!  Scriptures: 2 Corinthians 11:22-30 (Paul's list of sufferings) Psalm 34:18, Revelations 21:4, Luke 6:21 Practical things to do as you go through the grief process: 1. Keep breathing. God is Ruach; the breathe of life.  2.Talk to God; trust His character of Love.  3. Be honest with your feelings. Surrender to the pain.  4. Use your imagination to put yourself in the picture with scripture. Use your five senses to hear God's personal truth for you. (for more information on how to do this, check out "Hearing God's Voice" Season 1, Episode 16)  5. Worship whether you feel like it or not  6. Speak scripture out loud. 7. Get honest with others and allow them to walk with you on your journey of healing.  8. Don't pretend like everything is ok, when it's not.  9. Reach out to a Professional Counselor or a Lay-Counselor. Someone who hears from God and can create a safe space for you to be free with your emotions. And point you to God's healing and truth.   Practical tips for friends/loved ones of those grieving: 1. Show empathy 2. The less you say, the better. Especially at first. 3. Don't try to fix. Just create a safe space to let them share their feelings 4. Deal with your own stuff. Other people's suffering will reveal areas you may not have dealt with yourself. 5. Remember everyone processes and grieves differently and on different timetables, don't try to impose what you think on someone else.  6. Love them in prayer and lead them to Christ, the One who binds up the broken hearted and brings new life out of suffering.

Healthy Conversations
We all want to have them. And yet, they are difficult. In this day and age, we need the skills to have the difficult conversations that need to happen to usher in more unity. It's not by avoiding or acquiescing that we create more unity, it is by having honest, open and redeeming conversations. Let's do the hard work to crucify our knee-jerk reactions so our personal agendas will not rule and reign our essential conversations, and then perhaps we can truly desire the other person's good above our own. Now this is the way of Heaven. Philippians 2:3 " Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit [through factional motives, or strife], but with [an attitude of] humility [being neither arrogant nor self-righteous], regard others as more important than yourselves." Guidelines for Healthy Conversations: 1. Humility 2. Respect 3. Listen, Listen, Listen 4. Learn 5. Questions 6. Recap 7. Tone 8. Don't debate 9. Request 10. Peace 11. Trust (Bonus: Time/Timing and Space)

Obedience, Disagreements and Interpreting the Bible w/ Leslie Barron
The conversation with, "Oh wise one", Leslie Barron continues. Leslie shares more fully the benefits of obedience and unpacks in a simple way, what growth in Christ looks like. We also touch on how to interpret the Bible correctly and have productive conversations with fellow believers regarding God's word. If you haven't listened to her first interview on March 4th, check it out. Your faith life will be enriched by both.  Leslie's Tips to Interpret Scripture: 1. Read and observe. Who are the characters? What setting was it in? etc.  2. What does the scripture say?  2. What does it mean? We have to look at this through the big lens of the entire book. The main purpose of the Bible is to share truth about God's redemption for His people.  3. How does it impact my life?

Happy Anniversary you guys! Can you believe it's been a year? It is truly OUR Anniversary because I would not be here if not for my friends, family and followers who have supported this Podcast. Your rates, reviews, listens, shares, prayer, all have contributed to the success of this year.  For me the most exciting responses that encourage me to 'keep on keeping on' are those random texts or messages I get (and yes, YOU can message me via: https://www.angelhdavis.com/ ), that tell me the episode spoke to their heart or circumstance in some way. God has told me over and over again, "Do it for the Audience of One".  Of course Him first, but also YOU, as the listener. If an episode has touched ONE life, then it is a success!  Another super encouraging response, is that God has allowed the Podcast to be broadcast into 17 different Geographic regions! Whoop, Whoop.  United States, Australia, Haiti, Ireland, Untied Kingdom, France, Finland, New Zealand, Germany, Canada, Jordan, Sweden, Kenya, Spain, Singapore, Taiwan, and the Philippines.  Let's keep it going!

Spiritual Fitness: Finishing Strong
Today we are finishing up our Spiritual Fitness series. And we have the extreme privilege of hearing from Tom and JoAnn Doyle, of Uncharted Ministries. They chat about their work in the Middle East, their new book, "Women Who Risk", and how they personally stay spiritually fit. You will gain tips for your own fitness journey as well, as huge inspiration to keep 'fighting the good fight of faith'. Tom and JoAnn make this spiritual workout journey fun! Hope you enjoy!  About the Book: Women Who Risk - Explore the incredible work of God in the lives of women in the Muslim world. (thomasnelson.com) About Tom: Tom Doyle fell in love with the Middle East on his first Bible tour of the Holy Land. In 1995 he became an official tour guide for the state of Israel and developed a passion for ministering to the Israeli people, Arabs and Jews alike. Tom and his wife, JoAnn, felt a call from God to full-time ministry there in 2001. In 2017 the Doyles launched Uncharted Ministries, which seeks to Inspire the Body of Christ to rise up join the new great awakening among Jews and Muslims in the Middle East and in uncharted territories around the world. Tom and JoAnn began working in the heart of the Islamic world shortly after the terrorist attacks of September 11. Tom and JoAnn serve in places like Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Syria and Palestinian territories of Israel. The Doyles lead groups to the Middle East through their Lands of the Bible tours. Tom is a master storyteller with several books highlighting God’s miraculous work among the Muslim people. His best-known books include Dreams and Visions, Killing Christians, and Standing in the Fire, which was a Finalist for the 2018 Book of the Year by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. About JoAnn: JoAnn Doyle and her husband, Tom, have been married for 38 years and have six children and seven grandchildren. JoAnn was a pastor’s wife for 20 years before God called the Doyle’s into full-time work in the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa in 2001. What surprised JoAnn most of all is that soon after she began her work in the region, God birthed in her a heart for the women of the Middle East, especially Muslim women. “I was not in the least attracted to them and their needs, but soon God broke my heart for them. I was truly able to see them through our Father’s eyes.” This led JoAnn to launch a ministry for Women in the Middle East named Not Forgotten. The team has ministered in Israel, Egypt, Gaza, The West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon, Afghanistan, India, Korea, and right here in the United States. The ministry reaches out to all women of the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia but, specifically, is called to reach Muslim women with the love of Christ. JoAnn and the Not Forgotten team are highly sought after to train women in North America and around the world to engage Muslim women around them with the love and Good News of Jesus. JoAnn leads expeditions for women overseas and speaks in many churches throughout North America. Her goal is to inspire women to have a heart for Muslim women and to be Jesus to them. In 2017, God called JoAnn and Tom to launch Uncharted Ministries which calls believers to join God’s great harvest field among Jews and Muslims. JoAnn is also a regular guest on various national radio programs such as the Moody Radio Network with Chris Fabry, and Charles Dyer. She also co-wrote Breakthrough – The Return of Hope to the Middle East with Tom. Worship and prayer is the heart of JoAnn’s life, along with a deep love for her family.

Spiritual Fitness: Faith
Chatting with Sharon Danley today about faith. How her faith was strengthened through learning to hear God's voice and know His presence through all the ups and downs of life. She is a gifted story teller and very openly shares some of her struggles and how God met her in them. You'll be inspired and encouraged, and hopefully, hungry to hear from God yourself. He can hone the faith muscle He has already put in you and enable you to stand strong during these challenging times! Spiritual well-being is not dependent on our circumstances. It is dependent on a Person, Jesus.  Scriptures: Luke 17: 5-6(AMP); Romans 12:3; John 10:27 6 Tips to strengthening faith: 1.God asks us to trust the story He has been weaving for us since the beginning of time, even when we can’t see why or how He goes about it.  2.He asks us to study His written word to get to know Him deeply. 3. He wants us to have His written word very near us in our hearts so that He can use it to speak to us in whatever way He chooses-through nature, music, poetry, or His personal whispers to our souls. 4. He wants us to BELIEVE that He will and IS keeping His promises in His word. 5. He wants us to lean into Him for strength and understanding, not on our own limited discernment. 6. He wants us to turn to the body of believers for support as this is how He designed us: yearning for relationship with Him and others.

Spiritual Fitness: Identity
Our Spiritual fitness journey continues! Today we add the weight of Identity. Who we are in Christ. But first, we have to understand who we are apart from Christ to fully develop the muscle of true identity in Christ. Grab your work-out buddy and let's get rolling.  Basic principles as we go through our Fitness Training: 1. The two major ‘muscle’ groups we are concentrating on is our heart and our mind. 2. Our ‘gymnasium’ is our world/circumstances/experiences and feelings. 3. The ‘weights’ that we will be using to hone our muscles are: Belief; Identity; Faith; Prayer; Obedience; Trust (and a few others that will be thrown in there). 4. We will have preconceived thoughts that will 'fight' against the truth of God's word. (This is where we'll sweat:). 5. We will have enemy warfare that will 'fight' against our fitness plan. ie. discouragement, depression, fear, etc.  6. Breathe deep and keep lifting those weights! The outcome will be Freedom and Overcoming (maturity in Christ). #worthit

You can be alone and not lonely. Or you can be with people and feel very lonely. It's a human feeling and, we all experience it. Yet, loneliness does not have to be a state of being. Tune in and glean from those who have experienced loneliness. Learn the GOOD that come from it, as well as how to build those 'muscles' of resilience.  Resources: Dr. Caroline Leaf: http://www.carolineleaf.com/ Jennie Allen, "Get Out of Your Head"  Paul Scanlon: https://www.paulscanlon.com/ Scripture references: Psalm 25:16-21; Mark 5:24-34; Matthew 8:3; Luke 17:14 Additional Scriptures: Deuteronomy 31:6; Psalm: 139:7-10; Psalm 23; Psalm 27:10; Psalm 68:6; Romans 8:38-39; 1 John 3:12; Hebrews 13:5

Overcoming Shame
"Shame off of you" as the saying goes.  Shame is a powerful force that can help us build up the 'muscles' of resilience and growth.  Today we talk about the 6-R's of healing: Resolve, Release, Repent, Renew, Receive, Rest.  Jesus; His truth and shed blood on the Cross have already overcome the dark force. HIs love has slain shame. Listen in and find out more!

Overcoming Fear
Today we look at how Post Traumatic Growth can be applied in the face of fear. Faith and Love are our antidotes to the fear that wants to 'steer the ship' of our lives. You do not have to settle for a life of fear, no matter what has happened or is happening in your life. Fear is based on a circumstance. Faith is based on a person. One is flimsy and one is rock solid. Let's stand on solid rock and let Faith arise!

Faith of a Child: Lessons from Toddlers
Conversations with Kathleen continue~ I just love talking to Kathleen, because she exudes a child-like faith. We unpack the difference between childish and childlike. And why it's important. We trade stories from our role as a "Maw"...the best job on earth; Grandparenting! (Yes, I'm a little biased.)  But what a great metaphor of how God invites us to trust, rest and have peace, no matter what is going on in the world!  We need your help to spread the word: Be sure to 'like, rate, and review' the Podcast so more folks can benefit from the Hope and Healing that Jesus has for them. Also you can send this to a friend who you think will benefit from the episode.

Healing From Trauma: Part 6
How to thrive during the COVID Crazy times we are in. Today we explore Post Traumatic Growth; Resilience and GRIT.  All the good things that can come out of trauma and tragedy. We look at from the lens of Psychology and Biblically. We can become better through our struggles of life-based on how we respond. Tragedy and trauma is where character and strength is built! Life is HARD! (Matthew 16:33) And we have a choice of how we respond...Let's GROW you guys! It's the best choice we have.  Show Notes:  6 core human longings: Significance; Safety; Purpose;  Understanding; Belonging; Love The Triangle of Well-being and Resilience model, developed by Dr. Dan Siegel (2010) Posttraumatic Growth, defined as positive psychological change experienced as a result of adversity and other challenges to rise to a higher level of functioning.was coined by psychologists Richard Tedeschi and Lawrence Calhoun. Research by Angela Duckworth, found that one characteristic emerged as a significant predictor of success. And it wasn't social intelligence. It wasn't good looks, physical health, and it wasn't IQ. It was grit: passion and perseverance for long-term goals. Colossians 1:11; 1 Corinthians 9:23-25; Romans 5:3-4

Victory through Spiritual Warfare and Suffering
Today we have the joy of hearing and learning from my friend, Pastor Joyce Heard. She was with us in the "COVID and Racial Relations" episode. (If you haven't listened to it yet...do it!!:).  We are chatting about the reality of enemy warfare and suffering and how that plays out in our day and time. But more importantly we talk about our authority as believers in Christ, and how to utilize this truth against the darkness. Christ's shed blood and victory on the Cross and resurrection, affords us protection, offensive weapons and purpose in the middle of it all.  Listen. Learn. Share with your friends. Let's take steps to change the world, as we magnify the Lord together. YOU matter. How you choose to respond matters. YOU can make an impact. Let's DO this thing...empowered through Christ.  Scriptures: Ephesians 6:10-19; 1 Peter 5:6-11; Romans 16:20

Rock Solid Marriages
Today we're talking about Contract vs Covenant in regards to marriage. Most of us seem to think a marriage is conditional, yet that is not what God's word says or what God's love empowers us to do. We are called into Covenant. For better and for worse. Listen in as I define what this means and, how we are enabled to walk this out. Also, we have a SPECIAL treat today: Tom and JoAnn Doyle of Uncharted Ministries are with us. They are accomplished ministers of the Gospel all over the world, authors, speakers and teachers. Yet, their greatest accomplishment is their 40-year marriage and the legacy they are leaving for their 6 children and 9+Grandchildren!  You can learn more about Tom and JoAnn and their ministry at: unchartedministries.com

Hearing God's Voice
As believers in Christ, we have the assurance in John 10 that we are 'hard-wired' to hear God's voice. We were created intimately by Him and created for intimacy with Him. Learning to discern whose voice we are listening to is a game-changer in our relationship with God, with our spouses and in other relationships. In this world that has so many voices, let's learn to hear the One voice that matters the most.  If you have comments or questions DM:  @angel.h.davis  Resources: Mark Virkler: https://www.cwgministries.org/Four-Keys-to-Hearing-Gods-Voice Priscilla Shirer,  "Discerning the Voice of God: How to Recognize When God is Speaking "  Mark Batterson, "Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God"  Angel H Davis, "The Perfecting Storm: Experiencing God's Best Through the Trails of Marriage"

The Clash of Two Kingdoms
Today we start digging into some of the concepts of healing and freedom from "The Perfecting Storm: Experiencing God's best through the trials of Marriage."  We look at the starting point or restarting point of a healthy marriage, using the backdrop of the book of Ephesians. Also, we differentiate between the Kingdom of Self and the Kingdom of God.  It's a choice, which one we decide to live out of. It's a game-changer in our marriages and any relationship we are in, so subsequently it can affect the world.  One person, allowing God to do what He desires in your heart; has immense influence. Grab a friend, a spouse, your small group and, listen in!
