Prayer is a mystery

1/31/2023 00:40:16
Prayer is a mystery
Have you prayed for something and God said no? We all have (if we are honest). We have all prayed for something or someone, and the outcome is not what we wanted or expected. The truth is, if when we come to God with our prayers and expect Him to work the outcome in the way we want, we treat God like He is a vending machine. Prayer isn't transactional, it is relational. It isn't about getting what we want, it's about getting God. 

Sometimes we get a no, that is true. But that does not mean that God is displeased with you. His no is often the kindest possible answer He can give to you. Throughout the Bible, we see God say no to heroes of the faith; David, Paul, and even Jesus. But look at how God not only blessed them, but used them. So if you get a no from God, you are in good company. 

Join Candace and Tara-Leigh as they share vulnerable moments about their life through this conversation around prayer and hearing no from God. 

In this episode, you will hear Candace and Tara-Leigh discuss: 
  • The difference between a transactional prayer and a relational prayer. 
  • When Jesus got a no from the Father and how important that moment is to understand when it comes to your prayer life and relationship with Him. 
  • How no is often God's kindest possible answer, and often the answer we are grateful for in hindsight. 
  • What the landscape of Candace's prayers look like. 
  • The moment that Candace recognized divorce was a no from God (through an honest conversation with her kids). 


Scripture Memory of the Season: 

1 John 5:1-5 (CSB) Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father also loves the one born of him. This is how we know that we love God's children; when we love God and obey His commands. For this is what love for God is: to keep His commands. And His commands are not a burden, because everyone who has been born of God conquers the world. This is the victory that has conquered the world: our faith. Who is the one who conquers the world, but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

Prayer is about God communicating with us

1/24/2023 00:26:13
Prayer is about God communicating with us
Prayer is a conversation with God that He desires to have with us. He is never too busy for us, never bothered by our requests or prayers, and certainly is not bored when we talk to Him. When we pray, God is always there, always listening, and always receiving. 

Prayer is a place where all 3 persons of The Trinity are at work. When we pray, we are talking to the Father, through Jesus (because of the connection He made possible for us), and the Holy Spirit is empowering us in and through prayer. 


Two common questions people ask when it comes to prayer are: 
  1. How do I pray? 
  2. Why do I need to pray to God when He knows everything? 


In today's episode, Candace and Tara-Leigh dig into those two questions, and more. If you don't know how to pray or feel like you aren't good at praying, or you feel like you don't understand why prayer matters - take a breath and rest easy. Let's go on this journey together! 

In this episode, you will hear Candace and Tara-Leigh discuss: 
  • Prayer as a conversation with the Trinity and how that perspective of prayer will challenge the way we pray. 
  • How prayer can be taught or developed; it is a skill Jesus taught His disciples and can teach us too. 
  • What "in Jesus name, Amen" actually means and the power it carries when we pray. 
  • Moments in their lives where they have seen their prayers answered (in ways they desired and in ways they did not expect). 
  • Tips for listening and meditating in silence with God; it may be difficult but it is  powerful. 


Scripture Memory of the Season: 

1 John 5:1-5 (CSB) Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father also loves the one born of him. This is how we know that we love God's children; when we love God and obey His commands. For this is what love for God is: to keep His commands.

The Spirit of God changes how we live

1/17/2023 00:32:18
The Spirit of God changes how we live
God's never going to give you more than you can handle" - it is really easy to look at punchy one-liners like this one on social media and take them as the whole truth. But do you measure them against God's word before you take them as the whole truth? The Spirit calls us to use The Word as a measuring stick for truth. He is our guide and gives us wisdom as we walk through life. 

The Spirit is meant to bring clarity to us and teach us. All throughout scripture, the Spirit clarifies who Jesus is and points back to the truth (the Son and the Father) teaching us how to be more like Him. 

Colossians 3 says to put on attributes like kindness, compassion, patience, gentleness, and more). It is not easy to do everyday, but it is a choice we make everyday day. And if we practice it enough it becomes a habit. By surrendering to the Spirit's work in us, He will enable us to walk in those attributes, lean into His wisdom, and walk in His Spirit. 

The Spirit produces the fruit in us but that takes time. The more time you spend with the Spirit, the more you are nourished and grow. When we get frustrated that we don't feel we are growing it is easy to be discouraged and bow out. But God is still at work within you. Don't lose hope. He is developing the fruit in you. Be patient with yourself; He is patient with you. 


In this episode, you will hear Candace and Tara-Leigh discuss: 
  • The importance of measuring everything against the Word of God. 
  • How we are unified as the body of Christ because of The Spirit. 
  • Learning from others with different opinions is healthy for you and your faith. 
  • Why kindness is so important to Candace and the story behind her book "Kind Is The New Classy" 
  • The Fruit of the Spirit - and how it is ONE fruit with 9 attributes, not 9 different fruits. 
  • The difference between a transactional and relational partnership with the Spirit. 


Scripture Memory of the Season: 

1 John 5:1-4 (CSB) Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father also loves the one born of him. This is how we know that we love God's children; when we love God and obey His commands. For this is what love for God is: to keep His commands. And his commands are not a burden, because everyone who has been born of God conquers the world. This is the victory that has conquered the world: our faith.

The Spirit of God is always with us

1/10/2023 00:36:21
The Spirit of God is always with us
Who is the Holy Spirit? This is such a common question that is asked when it comes to fully understanding The Trinity. The Holy Spirit is the most mysterious (and sometimes confusing) within the triad. Before Jesus went back to Heaven, He said "I am sending the Spirit who is better than me." Better than Jesus? That doesn't sound right. But it is. The Holy Spirit is not a force or power used by God. He is a person who has responsibilities and characteristics that help guide us through life. And Jesus knew we needed Him. 

Candace and Tara-Leigh sit down and dive into the mystery of The Holy Spirit in hopes of helping us understand who He is and how He works in us. They also share personal stories from their faith journey; and Candace talks about the time her husband baptized her in the ocean (grab your tissues! It's a beautiful story). 

As you listen to this conversation, we hope you are inspired to take your relationship with God deeper through The Holy Spirit. Did you know you can read your Bible in ONE year just by reading for 12 minutes a day? That makes studying God's word more, seem possible. 


In this episode, you will hear Candace and Tara-Leigh discuss: 
  • Building good habits (especially with reading and studying your Bible). 
  • The moment Candace began to understand and desire to read the Bible.
  • Who The Holy Spirit is and how He fits into The Trinity. 
  • Baptism; what it is and why it is important to your walk with Jesus.

The Son of God shows what God is like

The Son of God shows what God is like
Candace is BACK with Tara-Leigh Cobble to continue their conversation on the connection between God and Jesus (pssst ... He is still the same person) Think about this: if Jesus were not God, but was just a man, how would that change the way you live? You likely may stop seeing Jesus as Divine and see as a man who was a bit crazy at times; as a man who ran around claiming to be God, the fulfillment of the Old Testament. And you likely would not place as much weight into what He says or how He guides you. 

Candace and Tara-Leigh discuss that the idea that God of the Universe, who created everything, came to us in human form to save us. God desires a relationship with us and he wants us to flourish in life. He sent His son so that we could flourish. Everything that Jesus teaches us is for our joy, our thriving, and our flourishing. And when we live life knowing HIs love for us and how much He cares for us, that will pour out onto those around us. 


In this episode, you will hear Candace and Tara-Leigh discuss: 
  • Why the birth of Jesus is just as important as the death of Jesus 
  • The moments in the New Testament where Jesus revealed Himself and moments He did not, and why He chose to withhold who He was to certain groups.
  • A moment in Candace's life where she had to push through her anger and lean into Christ-like humility.
  • What Dancing With The Stars taught Candace about how much God picks us up and guides us through hard seasons. 


Scripture Memory of the Season: 

1 John 5:1-3 (CSB) Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father also loves the one born of him. This is how we know that we love God's children; when we love God and obey His commands. For this is what love for God is: to keep His commands.
