We are called to Lay down Religion and Step Into Relationship

Messages To My Students

A Prayer For Covid-19
"Thank You, father. This calamity is not the first one You've seen, nor will it be the last. You've seen so much more than we can comprehend. You've been fighting this battle since before we were born. You are relentlessly fighting against the enemy, relentlessly protecting and preserving Your people, relentlessly reaching out to the lost and pulling them into the safe place where even though the body may be destroyed, the soul lives on forever. Lord, we don't understand Your timing. If we're honest, our hearts cry out. We say, God, can't You just snap Your fingers and make this go away? Can't You just fix the problem in a blink of an eye? Why must we suffer? How long, Oh Lord? And yet we remind ourselves time after time again: this is the story that You're telling. You've allowed us to be a part of it, and every chapter of the story indicates and points to us the truth: that You are good and You never fail, that You do everything You do for a reason." --- The Wilderness Devotional is a short-form podcast by Aaron Salvato and The GoodLion Podcast Network that is here to provide you with small moments to re-center yourself on Christ as you wander through the wilderness of life. Each episode includes a devotional message, as well as atmospheric prompts at the end to help you pray and meditate on the way of Jesus.

Allow Your Heart To Be Broken
If you've ever gone through a breakup, had your heart broken, or experienced rejection (which is a lot of us!) I think this episode will really speak to you. I say some things in here that are a little hard to hear, but they are important and I would not say them if it didn't come from a place of love. Which they do!
