Background Worship

The artist has arranged several popular worship songs into piano pieces that work really well to have on in the background while reading/thinking/journaling, etc. For me, I can’t have music on with the lyrics being sung while I am trying to practice the solitude and hear from God. But the familiar melodies are comforting and inspiring to me. 

Perfect Peace

Amanda Cook and Steffany Gretzinger from Bethel Worship sing this song “Perfect Peace”.  This song has helped me remember that perfect peace comes from God and I need to seek it out in Him before I try to manufacture it myself.  Spend some time in worship.

Completing the Divine Circuit

In the search for understanding the false and true selves Richard Rohr has been a wealth of knowledge and healthy challenge.  In this daily meditation, Richard talks about the vulnerability of allowing yourself to be known by God

It is way too easy for me to find myself trusting and investing in things other than God as the one who brings me joy and happiness in this life.  This daily reading by Ransomed Heart reminds me to continually come back to God as the source of my life and to surrender the other things.

You Are My Joy

In this “This Resonates” post, Will Reagan sings about God being his joy.  God is our savior, our Father, our King and also our JOY.  Spend time worshiping God with this video.

A God of Process

At True Pursuit, we believe that God truly is a God of process.  He does not hurry and is willing to wait as long as it takes for us to catch up to Him.  If we are willing God willing transform us into the person God created us to be.  We are in process because God is a God of process.  John Eldredge writes more…

Reckless Love

Steffany Gretzinger and Bethel Worship sing about God’s reckless love.  Some of our favorite lines in this song are:  I couldn’t earn it, I don’t deserve it, still You give yourself to me.  Connect with God and receive His love through worshiping with this video.

All Things New

John Eldredge talks about his new book All Things New.  He describes the loss of hope being so detrimental to our society and the return of God  and Heaven on earth being what we should be hoping for.

Blessed Are Those

We know that suffering is part of our everyday lives, but we still try to ignore or numb it most of the time.  What if suffering had a purpose in our lives?  What if we could become stronger, better people through our suffering?  This Richard Rohr daily reading resonated with us on this topic.
