Together we will explore the bountiful, abundant life we have in Christ and learn how to walk in victory despite the challenges, trials, and adversity we encounter. "A thief has only one thing in mind - he wants to steal, slaughter, and destroy. But, I (Christ) have come to give you everything in abundance, more than you expect - life in its fullness until you overflow." John 10:10 TPT
"There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every matter under heaven—" Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NASB)
There are many seasons in our lives, but through it all, we can trust the God of the universe to equip us, strengthen us, and provide for us in every moment.
"For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for prosperity and not for disaster, to give you a ...
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and love and sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
Fear is not from God.
Whether you are tormented by nightmares, fearful of scary movies or fear failure, fear steals our peace and leads to anxiety and terror. For all who love the Lord and put their trust in Him we do not have to fear or be afraid.
As it says in Josuha 1:6 "Have I not com...
Today, I have my first-ever interview with my good friend Christy. She is a young professional who wants to encourage women to know that we are not alone.
On the podcast, we talk about the different seasons of life we go through as women, and how to stay closely connected to the Lord and surround ourselves with others who are like-minded in our Christian faith.
You are not alone!
"There are so many other peo...
Did you discover your spiritual gifts?
If not, listen to the previous podcast "What is My Purpose?"
Today we expand on knowing the gifts, talents, and skillset the Lord has entrusted us and discuss how Jesus tells us to use them in Matthew 25 "The Parable of the Talents".
When we ask Jesus to be Lord of our lives, that is not the end, that is the first step in becoming His disciple. We b...
Do you ever wonder, why am I here? What is my purpose for living?
God has gifted you with a unique, one-of-a-kind calling. He has equipped you with talents and spiritual gifts to bring heaven to this earth and glory to His name.
In this episode, we discuss the difference between a calling and a career:
"A calling is what you're made to do,
A career is what you're paid to do."
As we celebrate the one year mark of the Bountiful Living podcast, Katie shares how she is learning to abide in Christ. Life in Christ is one that transforms us, steadies us and gives us joy and peace in the midst of suffering and an overstuffed calendar.
John 15 "Abiding in Christ"
"Boundaries: When to sa...
Life doesn't always turn out like we expect or plan. How do we navigate these roadblocks? Today we continue our study of the Book of Ezra we will identify some of the tactics the enemy can use against us to frustrate us and attempt to halt the work God is doing in our lives.
We find our victory in Christ: "We are hard pressed on all sides, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsa...
Where are you in your walk with the Lord?
1. at the epic newness of salvation
2. captivity/going my own way/drifting
3. needing to rebuild
4. mature believer
5. on fire
If your connection with God is severed, you can rebuild.
We cover a lot of ground in this episode. Here are some of the scriptures we discussed for your reference:
Old Covenant? New Covenant? What is the difference?
What does the Bible say about revival?
The only verse that states the word revival verbatim is found in Ezra 9:8 and this specific verbiage is found only in the New King James translation, where it says, “And now for a little while grace has been shown from the LORD our God, to leave us a remnant to escape, and to give us a peg in His holy place, that our God may enlighten our eyes and give us a measure of revival in our bondage.”
How do we hear from God?
We must first posture ourselves to hear what the Lord speaks. We must come to a place of willingness to seek God and hear what He speaks through prayer and reading His Word.
1 Peter 3:12 (ESV) “For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayer.”
Jeremiah 33:3 (ESV) “Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have n...
There are days and seasons when life feels like it has hit a dead end.
What if I told you in this very moment God has a plan for your life and is working things out for your good?
As followers of Christ, "We have become his poetry, a re-created people that will fulfill the destiny he has given each of us, for we are joined to Jesus, the Anointed One. Even before we were born, God planned in advance our dest...
Have you sought the Lord this year for your vision, your word, and your resolutions?
If we go with God in 2023, we will not fail or falter, He is a firm foundation.
We do this through:
1. Reading your Bible
3. Rest in Him.
You've got this because God has got you!
For the JOY of YOU, Christ endured the suffering of the cross!
This week on the podcast we discuss the JOY of knowing Jesus as well as His JOY of knowing you.
"We look away from the natural realm and we focus our attention and expectation onto Jesus who birthed faith within us and who leads us forward into faith's perfection. His example is this: Because His heart was focused on the JOY of knowing the Y...
"For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6 NASB
Christ is our peace.
The Apostle Paul shows us how to receive the gift of peace Christ offers in Philippians chapter four. He writes to the church at Philippi from prison. If anyone had a r...
This is the final installment of our Advent series on faith.
Join us as we read the Christmas Story in Luke chapter two.
"And the angel said to them, 'Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling clo...
We continue in part 2 of Luke chapter 1 starting in verse 39 when Mary, the mother of Jesus visits her cousin Elisabeth. What faith these two ladies have!
"And when Elisabeth heard the greeting of Mary, the baby leaped in her womb. And Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and she exclaimed with a loud cry, 'Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb! And why is this granted to me tha...
"Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." Hebrews 11:1
My children join me this week as we compare the faith of Abraham, Zachariah and Mary, the mother of Jesus. This is part 1 of our discussion on Luke chapter 1.
This is part three of God is our Hope. Today we discuss, God is our hope for tomorrow.
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he do...
Because of Christ, our HOPE can never be taken away.
Whether it was that recent medical diagnosis, an empty bank account, or yet one more betrayal. Whatever it is today that is making you feel hopeless, I want to tell you my friend you do not have to STAY in that place of hopelessness.
Because of Christ, we have a Bountiful Life including HOPE.
We know that “the thief comes to steal, to kill and to destroy, but Chris...
This week we are looking at the first week of ADVENT, God is our HOPE.
In the first part of this series on HOPE, we look at how God gave HOPE to humanity throughout all of history.
Hebrews 11:1 from the KJV says “Now faith (complete trust, confidence) is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence (indication, proof) of things not seen.”
God stood beside the men and women in the Old Testament through ...
