Friends with God (EP 05): How to Get to the Good Part of Following Jesus; My missing link

Can I get to good part of being a Christian please?

If I was “doing” everything right in my life. If I was saved by grace, mourned my sin, was hungry and thirsty for righteousness…then why wasn’t I having any of the good stuff about being a Christian? Where was all the joy and peace I was promised? I talk a lot about how Jesus can change lives, but I realized I’ve never shared the truths that changed mine.

In this episode I’ll share what scripture says about mercy and what it looks like in the believer’s life. It seems like an easy thing to understand, but my life didn’t match it AT ALL. I had a false understanding. I don’t think I’m alone. If mercy has such a simple definition, then what was the problem?

It simply doesn’t get enough attention.

We’ve been going through the Beatitudes and the process of the maturing believer; poor in spirit, mourning sin, trusting God, and being  hungry for righteousness. (It’s easy to catch up, just check out podcast player under podcast tab.)

Mercy begins the section of the Beatitudes describing the mature believer. This is why it’s super important for believers to understand how the enemy distorts how mercy in the believer’s life is played out. It’s my opinion that a proper understanding of mercy will change your walk with Jesus. It’s certainly changed mine.

How kind are your thoughts about yourself? Understanding mercy changed this for me.
Do you really understand Mercy? Ask yourself this;What do you say about yourself in your thoughts? How kind are you to yourself?

FWG 004 Learning to Trust God;Meekness

Steps to trusting God.

Learning to trust God can be Really. Really. Really. HARD!! Meekness is how we do that. In this episode we take a look at what meekness is and the role it plays in the life of the believer. It’s my favorite thing to talk about because it’s how we learn God is good. It’s my opinion that seeking meekness is the game changer in the believer’s life!

As always!

FWG Episode 002:Shame off You; A Beatitudes Study

“Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted.” -Jesus

Welcome to the Friends with God podcast! This is the second episode in a series on the Beatitudes. Today we will learn about what Jesus meant when he said the words, “Blessed are those who mourn for they will be comforted! Jesus is never simply talking about the natural world, he is talking about His kingdom. That’s spiritual. That being said, what needs to be mourned? Sin does. Period. It’s gets in our way of being able to see and know God more deeply. Some have mourned their sin too long. It’s my prayer that this podcast brings comfort to those who are stuck in shame as they see how Jesus handled shame for us. Good things happen when we learn more about the humanity of our Savior.

Shame didn’t stay on Jesus. That means it doesn’t have to stay on us. Tweet that

Finding the Humanity in Jesus.
Struggle with relating to Jesus as a human? Me too! Not anymore!


Welcome to the Friends with God podcast! In this episode we begin a five part series on finding the humanity of Jesus in the Beatitudes. Raised in church, I had trouble separating “super hero” Jesus in my mind. My life began changing when the gospel stories became facts about the person of Jesus Christ. It’s my hope you are able to trust Jesus with more parts of your life after this study on the Beatitudes!

As Always!
