Later that night, the boat was in the middle of the lake, and he was alone on land. He saw the disciples straining at the oars, because the wind was against them.

Jesus Never Loses Sight of Us: Guest Post by Lysa TerKeurst

Why do you keep asking me to do this? That is a question that many of us have asked God.  It’s a question that my guest this week, Natalie Runion, asked the Lord during a season of church hurt while serving under toxic leadership.  I invited Natalie onto the Hearing Jesus Podcast to talk through this difficult […]

Church Hurt: What to do With the Pain

This weekend is Father’s Day, and there is a heightened focus on our children and what it means to be a good parent. Recently, I invited my friend, Kyle Idleman, on the show to talk about the concept of surrendering our children to the Lord. In this episode, one of the things Kyle talks about […]

Anointing or Cleansing Your Home

This week on the podcast, we are talking about the concept of “binding and loosing.”  If you aren’t familiar, it’s essentially what we forbid and what we permit… in our lives… in our families… in our homes.  We talk about taking spiritual authority over the enemy, so I wanted to create a resource for you in case […]
