On today's podcast, we are celebrating many wonderful things! First, we celebrate all of the work, good and hard, that the Lord has done in our lives over these past ten years. We are also celebrating the end of Season 1 of the Light To My Path podcast. 43 episodes later and one thing remains true -- It has been a joy to read God's word to each of you these past few months. And lastly, we are celebrating G's birthday today. I asked him to pick out today's music for the background and in G fashion he picked something that might surprise you.
Join us as we laugh, share a story then a birthday kiss, and read together in the Word of God Psalms 139.

Today, I sit down with one of my long time sister friends, Tana, and we talk about the battles we have fought in our 25 years of doing life together. One thing we know today is that whatever battles are fought when God is in the midst of them, HE WINS!
Join us as we share a few of our personal battles then read Revelations 20 together.

Friends are a beautiful part of our everyday life. I sure do love my friends in the faith. However, I haven't always chosen wisely and for a long time in my life, I was hurt - rejected- betrayed - and even lied about - and at times I was the one who rejected - betrayed - and lied. We're not the only one who have felt such deep pain. God was all too familiar with the fair-weathered friendships of His own people, the Israelites. And let us not forget Jesus. Two of His closest friends betrayed and rejected Him - Judas and Peter. People fail us. Jesus though, He never will! Today, we read together in 1 Samuel 8 as we learn God's own people were demanding a King. They had forgotten their one TRUE KING and wandered away spiritually from confidence in Christ into the counterfeit confidence of someone else. Friend, what are you seeking in others today that Jesus lovingly wants to give to you for all eternity? He will forever be our GREATEST friend.

Today, September 11th marks the memorial of one of our country's greatest tragedies. While we will never forget the hurt and deep pain that was inflicted upon our people it is important that we forgive the ones who recklessly cause such damage and heartache. Forgiveness isn't just for the big disappointments in life, forgiveness is also for the smallest of transgressions. Did someone say something unkind to you? Have you judged someone recently? How about that time you mistreated a loved one? What about that time you picked up the phone to talk to someone else instead of talking to God about it? We live in a world filled with transgressions! Together we will learn how God restores joy into our souls when forgiveness is extended and/or received. Let's open our Bibles today as we read Psalms 32.

Today is Labor Day. A calendar holiday of rest gifted to those of us who labor hard throughout the year. But what is it exactly that we labor for these days? Join me today as I read from the book of Ecclesiastes 4. Together, we learn God's truth about the loneliness of wealth and how the chasing of the wind is both miserable and futile. But, laboring after the One true God, the Creator of everything including the wind, is work worthy of our labor.

Join me today as I share my sin and a part of my brokenness that continuously guides me into deeper healing that only Jesus can do. Together, we will read in Luke 7. Forgiveness is a gift far greater than anything we can receive. For it is Christ who came to earth, died on the Cross to forgive both you and me. Friend, who do you need to love like that today?

Life interrupted. It happens to all of us! One day we find ourselves living in rhythm with God's peace, love, and complete trust only to find ourselves catapulted the next day into anxiety, dislike, and fear. It is in the latter days than one's faith and belief in Christ is fully evident to those around us. It is here that we realize what we seek most is our heart's greatest desire. Do we seek to get back to peace, love, and trust? Or do we seek the only one, Jesus, who gifts us these things? Are we looking to be satisfied temporarily here on earth or sanctified for a life of eternity with Christ Jesus? What, friend, are you seeking most today?
Join me today as we read together in the book of Hebrews 11 -- Living By Faith.

On today's podcast, I invited a very special person in my life to pull up a kitchen bar stool and join me in reading the Word of God. My husband Glenn and I were about to begin the recording when a morning thunderstorm rolled into shore. With its powerful thunder sounds and lightning strikes, this storm could not be ignored. So it is when we are unexpectedly caught in a spiritual storm. Join us today as we open the sliding glass door, our hearts, and the Word of God in Psalms 119: 89-176 to talk about life storms and how God's Word will forever be a light on our path guiding us back to safe harbor.

This book has nothing to do with self and everything to do with Jesus. Sanctification is for our good and God's glory! This comes from delighting in God's Word. Let me invite you to follow along in your own Bible as I read God's word from Psalms 119. Today, we will read the first have of this lengthy chapter then continue reading the rest of Psalm 119 during the next episode. Come, let's delight in God's Word together!

For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. Therefore what benefit were you then deriving from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the outcome of those things is death. But now having been freed from sin and enslaved to God, you derive your benefit, resulting in sanctification, and the outcome, eternal life. Romans 6:20-22
What is sin? Today, I touch on a few points regarding sin and how we either live our lives as slaves to it or slaves to God. Read along with me today in Romans 6 and lean into what God has for all of us when we choose to live our lives fully in Christ.
