God’s Not Dead

God is using God’s Not Dead by the Newsboys to speak into the life of Family Life Radio Member Donald and his wife.  Donald told his wife about Christ and the song. She gave her life to Christ because of that song.  She listens to it in prison. Donald is happy she is able to listen to Christian radio while she is away from him. He is excited she can hear about God’s grace through the messages of the songs we play here at Family Life Radio. He says it also reminds him of the God has for each and every one of us.

 

 

 

Relating to Each Other

How we communicate has an effect on how we relate to each other. God created us each unique and sometimes that means pronouncing words differently from each other. Some common mispronounced words are Often, Nuclear and Realtor. Sometimes people say the word often and include the “T”. Often has a silent “T”. The silent “T” is in other words too for example: listen.  Nuclear is pronounced like Nucleus except with an “R” at the end instead of an “S”. Realtor is said Reel tur.

Kids make up their own versions as they try out new words. Our children have a good time with Spaghetti.

 

 

No matter how you pronounce your words, speak kindly. Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

Being a Kid Again

We’re all God’s kids. Sometimes we take life too seriously because we try to be in control, we forget God is in control. He’s got this, we don’t need to worry, just enjoy!

 

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:13

 

With all the responsibilities of being a grown up, what do you do to feel like a kid again? John plays with his dog. Sometimes he goes for a joy ride with his wife. He used to do that with his parents. He also goes to the beach, putting his feet in the sand and squishes them around.

Trusting God in the Waiting

God Saves Us from Ourselves / / Laura Story

All we need to do is ask God for help. He will help. God reminded Mike of a song. Then God confirmed the message by playing it on the radio at the same time it was going through his mind. Family Life Radio Member Mike says God is using Laura Story‘s song Mighty To Save in his life. He says it is a song that rings true for him and his 9 year old. It reminds him to go to his knees.

 

 

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.  1 Corinthians 10:13

Held By God // Casting Crowns

 

When we get on a plane the stewardess tells us in the event of an emergency a mask will come down from the ceiling.  We need to put ours on before helping others. Sometimes we get busy taking caring of others that we forget or don’t take time to take care of ourselves. Family Life Radio listener Katie (and my daughter) says the Casting Crowns song Just Be Held reminds her that God is taking care of her. God holds her. God listens to her. He loves her. He loves us. He is taking care of us. He holds us. He listens to us!

 

 

Opportunities Found in Change // Micah Tyler

God is using Micah Tyler‘s song Different to speak into Kim’s life.  She’s been with Celebrate Recovery for 10 years. She says it is easier to navigate the changes of life when we remember it’s all for His glory.

When changes come into our lives, that just means there’s more of us He wants to change.  We need to be willing to allow Him to change us.

In order to reach for what God has for us, we have to let go of what we think is best. God’s way is better. He has so much more planned for us than we know or have planned for ourselves.
