Holiday Road Episode 6: True Colors

One of my favorite parts about autumn is the changing colors of the trees.   If you take a closer look at this process, you’ll see that God has hard-wired into creation a beautiful picture of the spiritual life.

In today’s episode we’ll take a look at how and why the leaves change color and what the Bible has to say about how God works through the hard stuff in life.

Listen on iTunes.

For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long.  Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! – 2 Cor 4:17 (NLT)

If you want to learn more about the science behind the changing fall colors, you can read more about that here and here.

In today’s episode we’ll talk about how a trip to the pumpkin patch with a couple of preschoolers can teach you a lot about the grace of God.  If you’ve ever felt left out, overlooked or abandoned, this is a story you need to hear.

You can listen here in iTunes.

Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. – Ephesians 1:4-5 (NLT)

You did not choose me, but I chose you. – John 15:16a (NIV)

Holiday Road Episode 4: Amazing God

cornmaze

Happy October everyone!  In today’s episode I share some spiritual lessons about wisdom and trust from a trip my family took a corn maze a few years ago.

Listen to Episode 4, Amazing God on iTunes.

In this episode I talk about how sometimes we just see the circumstances in front of us while God always sees the bigger picture.  Here are some awesome corn maze pictures that remind me that’s God’s perspective is so much better than my own.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do,and he will show you which path to take. – Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)

Also, I mentioned a cool, roadside pumpkin stand we visited last week.  Here are a few pics.  The family who owns started it as a 4-H project with their kids ten years ago but have kept it going ever since.  We love this place.
