“If Jesus Came Back Today, I Don’t Think I’d Be Ready”

This was what Perry realized just after his sophomore year in college. That he needed to make a major shift in his heart to follow Jesus, to be all in. He realized, following Jesus is not the freedom to sin, it’s the freedom to live a new life that leads to eternal life!

Then, why are you following Jesus? After feeding 5000, more and more people were following Jesus. They were hungry. Jesus told the hungry crowd, “I am the bread of life.”

Shawna shares about the anxiety she’s feeling right now. She feels weak. But she’s hopeful because God’s word says, “When we are weak, then we are strong.” And the way to tap into that strength, is to boast in our weakness!

God challenged Perry to give us his most prized possession when he was 22. His Ovation acoustic guitar. It was a way to reach a friend for Jesus but even more, it was a way to die to an idol in his heart.

Do you wonder if God has a plan for your life? If He does, what if you mess it up? Looking at the life of David we see how God uses every part of our lives, even our mess up’s, to fulfill His plan’s for us.

Shawna love tacos, and cinnamon rolls. And God loves her. We toss around the word “love” pretty easily. But the Biblical understanding of the word “Love” in Hebrew has a much richer meaning.

Hebrew Teacher, Melissa Briggs, says the word “love” or Chesed is not a fickle or weak love but rather a strong, committed, loyal, covenant, steadfast love – exactly what every heart longs for.

She also explains the Hebrew meaning of the words “help” and “fear.” For a $50 discount on Hebrew Learning Courses with Melissa use the code HEBREW50.

Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
