God can speak to us anyway he wants to. If he spoke through a donkey(true story) he can speak through your spouse, song lyrics, a movie, radio, a billboard on the highway…however He wants to. The real question is are you listening? Life itself creates all kinds of distractions with daily activities and the unexpected storms of life but God is working through it all speaks to us to calm our anxious hearts.

When it comes to hearing from God – we tend to think that experience is reserved for really holy people like Moses. Hear a powerful modern day story of God speaking to a teenage girl in the middle of the night and the impact it had on another teen who was questioning God’s love. Learning to hear from God probably won’t happen all at once. It will take an investment of your time. But it’s so worth it! Also, we talked about a 4 step process that theologian, Dr. Mark Virkler discovered from Habbakuk 2 to help you to learn to hear from God.

Let’s get real…Someone says, “Then God told me _____” and you’re like, “How? Did you audibly hear His voice? How did God tell you?” That’s fair. This week on Perry and Shawna Mornings we are breaking it down, removing the mystery, and learning together how to hear from God. Todd Krygsheld, Executive Director of Escape Ministries, joined us for the conversation. You can join us too! Let’s learn together how to hear God’s voice and obey.

When we talk about leaders who fail big time, we say, “They fell from grace.” From a gospel point of view that makes no sense. When a leader’s life or anyone’s falls apart, the gospel says that we get to fall into grace. That’s what happened to Dr Jeremy Grinnell. Jeremy was the preaching pastor at Bella Vista Church in Rockford, MI. He taught at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, and he fell. Hard. Fell into an emotional affair, fell into a near fatal clinical depression.
And then in 20 seconds of folly threw everything away as he looked into the bedroom window of the woman he was having an emotional affair with. He was charged with invasion of privacy, was publicly disgraced and lost his ministry. But he didn’t lose Jesus or his bride and children. This is a story of self-destruction and redemption. Jeremy and his bride Denise join the team today to share their beautifully broken story. Their story will be shared at an even deeper level in Jeremy’s upcoming book, The Bellowing of Cain. Please share this show!
D.L. Moody said, “The world has yet to see what God can do with a man fully consecrated to him. By God’s help, I aim to be that man.” A conversation about how God takes ordinary, wounded, flawed, and surrendered people to bring the life of Jesus to the world. Then being all in with Jesus doesn’t mean being all put together. It means failing forward and most of all throwing yourself into Jesus. Next, being the good soil that produces massive fruit comes from 1001 decisions to surrender to Jesus. And finally, Perry longs to live unashamed, to no longer be afraid, to no longer be motivated by fear and shame. That would be all in for him. Please share if this encourages you!
