35: God Here With Me



 

 

 

How is God WITH me? Recently when I was trying to clarify what my podcast and blog are all about, I ended up with this chart. 

 

FINDING OUT..

HOW our Faithful God

IS WITH US

in our daily, ordinary lives

OFFERING

comfort, encouragement, love, faith, hope, forgiveness, reassurance, promises, salvation, goodness, truth, wisdom, peace, perseverance, strength, etc..

THRU the Means of Grace:

Baptism, Confession and Absolution, Holy Communion, Fellowship, Scripture

FOR everyday stuff like

pain, hurt, anger, frustration, shame, self-worth, frustration, helplessness, fear, despair, finances, careers, relationships (marriages, families, parenting, friendships..), etc.

 

It’s been pretty helpful in reminding me of all that God offers me and how I have access to those things in the incredible physical world he has created. 

This episode focuses in on those 5 means of grace in the middle. Listen to the show and decide whether I’m a heretic or not. Also, I go on a rant about all the crazy things people are saying on the internet that we kindof like the sound of – “claiming my marriage for God!” but that don’t really make that much sense and can lead us down a dangerous path of looking inward instead of to God. I agree being conscious of our sins and issues is helpful, but just because I write it down on a notecard doesn’t mean God is going to “fix” it the way I want Him to. Just sayin. 

During the show I said I’d have more links in the show notes to other shows/blogposts about these topics. Here they are:
