145 – Come: Jesus is Glad to See You!

The light of God on the face of Jesus is what warms our hearts. This is the joy and energy of our lives! Advent is the season to renew and cultivate this vision for Jesus. Kristi shares on how she has been experiencing Jesus’s delight by journeying with Mary and her Magnificat. Join the conversation as Bill unpacks Kristi’s upcoming devotional.

Jesus’ Abba Delights in You! (Your Best Christmas Gift!)

Living in a broken world we so often have a distorted view of God our Father, but Jesus demonstrates that our Abba Father delights in us. What a beautiful gift! God the Father sees you and delights in you as a precious daughter or son! Let’s join Bill and Kristi and receive the love of Abba with open hearts. Their closing meditation will help you jump into Jesus’ arms to experience Abba’s love, grace, and healing!

Unhurried With Jesus — Even at Christmastime!

In the craziness of this season, we often find ourselves hurried and stressed. When we are overwhelmed, it becomes difficult to take care of ourselves and love those around us. Jesus was never in a hurry! In this episode, Bill and Kristi remind us that Jesus is inviting us to rest with him. Take a moment to slow down and rest in Abba’s presence, as Bill leads us through a meditation to remember Jesus’s “easy yoke”.

Healthy Boundaries for the Holidays

Jesus accepted his personal limits and this helped him enjoy life and be loving. In John 7 we see an example of our Lord setting a boundary on a holiday. We discuss this and other Biblical examples of how “less is more” — for Advent and for daily life. Saying no helps you say yes when it’s most important!

Advent: Relaxed and Fruitful With Jesus

Let’s appreciate the coming of Christ this Advent season! To do that, we invite you into a fun Nativity meditation that fosters soul talk with friends. Also we discuss examples of Jesus inviting us into his “easy yoke” to be relaxed and fruitful in stressful times — like the busyness of the Christmas season!

Advent Brings Hope of Resurrection

The great hope of our lives is meeting Jesus face to face in heaven. The Bible teaches that we’re sowing our bodily lives like seeds that will blossom as resurrection bodies in heaven. This hope can sustains us through discouragement, stress, and grief. It’s our source of faith, love, joy and peace.
