02.09 Don't Let Hard Times Harden Your Hearts
📚Bible Study Notes on Proverbs 11:1, 24-26 and James 4:7 Hard times can harden our hearts. 🖤Everyone is suffering in business one way or another because of the COVID pandemic and the government's lacking response to help businesses. These conditions can make business owners not only cut costs but also cut corners to survive. For any business owners reading this, have you been tempted to do this? Let me warn you that if you fall into the trap of cutting corners to stay alive, it will not be worth it in the end because you could end up losing trust and credibility with your clients and suppliers. And when you do it once, here's what happens to your heart: 1. It becomes hardened because deep inside you will feel guilty for cutting corners at your customers' expense. And if no one calls you out on it, you'll think you've gotten away with it and your heart hardens just a little more. 2. Eventually, you will be a business person who may be successful financially, but deep down you are guilty of cheating others. The guilt you try to bury will eat away at your soul. And that is a sad predicament. ✨So don't let these hard economic times harden your heart. I was encouraged by Proverbs 11 verse 1 and verses 24-26 the other day. I was reminded that while I am in this worldly economy, as a Christ-follower, I am also in God's economy. These ancient words of wisdom remind me that when I am generous even when it's hard to give, it can also be the most fulfilling I can do. When the act of giving costs you something, it  is true sacrificial giving. It's an act of trust and expression of faith - trusting that my God can provide for me when I give to others who really need it. I think that at the core, being grateful for more than the material things that we have  allows us to be in a heart position to give either with grace or financial help to those who really need it. When we are reminded that there are a lot of people doing worse off than us, we cancel our own pity party and start to looking outward at ways we can practically help others. I have my own personal testimonies of how God has come through when I give even when it's hard, not just when business is slow, but when suppliers or customers take advantage or outrightly cheat. Lots of lessons and experiences revealing my own heart through it all. It would have been very easy for me to harden my heart and be cynical over the years. Doing business is challenging in any season, but it's been a tough couple of years, hasn't it! It's been a long tough season, but I continue to see His goodness through it all.

02.08 Doing the Impossible with God: Crossing the Jordan at Flood Stage
📚Bible Study Notes on Joshua 3, Joshua 4 and Psalm 50 Crossing the Jordan at flood stage isn't just hard, but it's impossible. Impossible indeed for man but not for God. In Joshua 3, we see the miracle of God stopping the flood waters, so that the Israelites led by Joshua would be able to cross on dry land. In Joshua 4, we learn why God told the 12 representatives of the tribes to carry out large stones to make an altar for Him. I share two major lessons I've gleaned from these two chapters and close with encouragement from Psalm 50. I've been blessed to still share my Bible study notes pretty regularly. With the kids at home, things get a little trickier. So, you will see a special appearance by my 8 year-old and husband in this video too!

02.07 Five Ways to Maintain a Clean Heart
📚Bible Study Notes on Leviticus 11 and Mark 7:1-23  Originally published on https://youtu.be/_9H9XaDnpfA In Leviticus 11, God gives the Israelites a list of clean and unclean animals to preserve and protect the. In Mark 7:1-23, Jesus declares that all foods are clean. Is God contradicting Himself?  From my Bible study notes, I share how I learned that Jesus cares more about what comes out of a man than what goes in. It is the things that we consume through our eyes and minds that defiles our hearts, and consequently, from that unclean heart, we exude the aroma of the world more than the aroma of Christ. I share five ways to maintain a clean heart so that we can spread the aroma of Christ to the world and draw people to Him.  Timestamps:  00:02:22 Let's read Leviticus 11 11 00:08:43 The purpose of clean and unclean animals  00:10:40 Let's read Mark 7:1-23  00:14:10 The greater danger of defiling our hearts  00:15:00 The filtration system we need to keep our hearts and words clean  00:16:50 Does our aroma point to Christ?

02.03 Good Friday: Jesus Paid My Sin Debt
Wanted to do something a little different today to share my reflection on Good Friday and how I am so grateful for Jesus Christ, my Redeemer. He paid for my sins, for all our sins on that cross.   Romans 5:6-10: "You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!"   Also watch "What's So Good About Good Friday?": https://youtu.be/UaqlphtAGwQ  00:00:53 - Me singing "Man of Sorrows (Hallelujah, What a Saviour)  00:03:50 - Sharing about how I was once a Buddhist and how that worldview shaped my idea of sin  00:05:40 - Christians and Buddhists agree that we are all born with sin  00:06:31 - There is no way we can paying for our sin debt by ourselves  00:00:53 - It had to be Jesus Christ  00:15:53 - Good Friday isn't the end  ——————   ✨I love having conversations about spiritual stuff.

02.02 Let Your Good Work Flow From Your Worth in Christ
To live a life of purpose and fulfillment, it's so vital to know that your worth is not found in your work, but in who you are. You are valued and loved by God your Creator. Your good work overflows from experiencing how much you are loved by Him.  ✨  Happy International Women’s Day! Ladies, may we continue to remind each other of our worth and of how much we are loved.  I appreciate each and everyone of those whom I call sisters...those who bless my soul and encourage me by their lives. 🙏🏼💖  There are so many women who still don’t recognize or appreciate how precious and valuable they are and so make so many wrong choices believing they don’t deserve any better. 💖 Tell them the truth that they are precious, valued and loved.   Scripture reading: Proverbs 31:10-31 . . .  #youareloved #preciousingodseyes #internationalwomensday #highlyvalued #deeplyrooted #spiritualHealth goodvibes #hearthealing

BCDC Essential Conversations: Dave Gilchrist
𝐁𝐂𝐃𝐂 𝐄𝐬𝐬𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐚𝐥 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 /////// 𝐄𝐩𝐢𝐬𝐨𝐝𝐞 8: Dave Gilchrist In this episode of BCDC Essential Conversations, I had an enriching time talking with Dave Gilchrist, whom I regard as my big brother in Christ. Dave expresses God’s heart for the lost by sharing the gospel in word and deed. The overarching theme of our conversation was edification and evangelism and what that looks like in everyday life. We also talk about the cost of discipleship as we move from former worldviews into new life in Christ. Be blessed by the insights that Dave shares. Dave Gilchrist was born and educated in South Africa. He accepted Jesus as his personal Lord and Saviour in 1992 and was involved in door to door ministry to muslims within the Johannesburg area from 2004 to 2011. He is married to Taryn and has two daughters Charis and Gabby. He has worked in different Marketing roles within the fast moving consumer goods sector from 1999 to 2015, which included a relocation to Bangkok within a South East Asia regional role from 2011 - 2015. Dave and his family lived in Bangkok for almost 7 years before moving to Sydney, Australia where he is currently based as Director for Child Sponsorship Marketing at World Vision International since 2017. He is actively involved in schools ministry and leads a life group at his local church in Sydney. - In the Essential Conversations series, BCDC co-founder Siree Sivapetchranat interviews disciples of Christ with the purpose of encouraging other believers in the body. There are many conversations happening all around the world regarding different topics relevant to our lives, but the inspiration of “Essential Conversations” comes from God’s exhortation for us to avoid “idle talk” (2 Timothy 2:16). We hope to spur believers to set their minds on things above and focus on the essentials of being a disciple in everyday living. - 📺Link to YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GPGKeZ5p0yM&t=59s 🎙️////// Listen to the BCDC Podcast on these platforms: Anchor.fm anchor.fm/bcdc Apple iTunes https://podcasts.apple.com/th/podcast/bcdc/id1507329239 Spotify https://spoti.fi/2K2Li90 #bcdcessentialconversations #discipleship #followersofChrist #Biblestudy #Christianpodcast

Amongst the various topics we explored, one of the highlights of our conversation was the importance of choosing daily disciplines to help us grow closer to God and how our self-discipline can trump our feelings and our moods. Emi shares how she is in the world but not of the world through relationships. And in these relationships, she hopes to share about God’s love and acceptance. Emi is a lawyer and counsellor living and working in Bangkok with her family.  She is married to Vinny and a mother of 3 young children. Emi has been a Christian for over 15 years and is passionate about seeking God's will and helping people in need. 📺Link to YouTube video is in our bio. 🎙️////// Listen to the BCDC Podcast on these platforms: Anchor.fm anchor.fm/bcdc Apple iTunes https://podcasts.apple.com/th/podcast/bcdc/id1507329239 Spotify https://spoti.fi/2K2Li90 #bcdcessentialconversations #discipleship #followersofChrist #Biblestudy #Christianpodcast

She shares how being in the Word and connected to community keeps her growing in spiritually and in love with Jesus Christ. Janice is from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where she was born and raised. For the past five years, Janice has been living and serving in Bangkok, Thailand. Janice is a child of God, a mom of an awesome daughter and grandmom of two marvelous grandkids.

As a young man, Matt had pursued the pleasures of the world to fill up the “God-sized” hole in his heart. When lovingly confronted with the question from a friend, “Do you have joy?”, he came face to face with the reality that his life was empty. Matt shares how his relationship with Jesus Christ transformed him radically. We also discuss how following Jesus closely can have its ups and downs and what we can do to keep pressing on in the journey.

Let Your Heart Break for Those Who Have Lost and are Lost
During this time, we hear a lot of “stay strong”, “have faith”, “this too shall pass.” And these are all important words of encouragement to share. We should absolutely be strong, have faith and yes, this too shall pass. But when I received an email titled “It’s time to grieve a little, and this is how…” this morning, it woke me up the reality that we need to take this time to grieve and lament as well.

Deeply Rooted: Day 6
Here we are, the last day of our six-day devotional! We arrive at the concluding sentence of verse 8: "It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” This last verse promises that not only will our leaves be green but we will even bear fruit! It's a promise that we will never fail to bear fruit! That is God’s promise to us if we abide in Him. Fruit in the time of drought would be nothing short of a miracle. When drought comes, trees will naturally concentrate all their resources to just stay alive and keep vital functions going. Fruit is produced produced in times of excess resources and abundant conditions.

Deeply Rooted: Day 5
We are now on Day 5 of our Deeply Rooted Devotional. Thank you for sticking through with this and I pray that it has been a truly Spiritually enriching experience as we camp out in these two verses!   "its leaves are always green.”    This part of verse 8 is a promise. Receive it as so. Biology was one of my favorite classes in high school and I was really interested in the units on plants. While I've never had a green thumb, I really do appreciate learning about plant life! We study from a very young age that healthy plants have green leaves. Brown or discoloured leaves are a bad sign. Most of the time, it's a symptom of a plant not having enough water. They start wilting, turn less green, more yellow and if left long enough without remedy, they will dry up, turn brown and fall off. In one of our science classes, we had to take care of our own house plant and I remember that when we came back from a long weekend, we found that one of my friend's plant had drooped and wilted. She was quite distressed about it, but the teacher said, don't worry, it can still be saved. Just give it some water, and it will come back to life. And it sure did! Thankfully, she saved it just in time.

Intro to Deeply Rooted: Growing and Going Together 6-Day Devotional
I’d like us to explore Jeremiah 17:7-8 to really align our perspective of productiveness with God’s. To do this, I believe we need to be deeply rooted first and foremost into His Word and nurture our relationship with our Saviour. So we will be starting a devotional series called Deeply Rooted: Growing and Going Together that will be posted on our website, our Instagram and Facebook accounts. Please join us starting tomorrow for the first BCDC Devotional Series and seek to be deeply rooted and learn together. Share with others and let’s grow and go together.
