Refined: Day 32

Job is the one character in the Bible that none of us really wants to be able to relate to. Often, when approaching the Book of Job, I pray that what happened to him – will never happen to me. The truth is this – God had a blessing for Job so extraordinary and so miraculous that all of heaven stopped and applauded. This is Carol McLeod and I am thrilled that you have joined me today on Defiant Joy Radio.

The Bible is not a flat book but it is sharp and powerful and miraculous. There is more power in the Bible than there is in the atomic bomb or in Niagara Falls or in an exploding star.

Refined: Day 22

Hey! I have a question for you today.  How is your prayer life? Most of us want to pray and believe in the power of prayer but do we actually pray?  Do we spend time on our knees in communion with God? If you are in a fire, then you need the power that is found in the presence of God on your knees.  You are listening to Defiant Joy Radio and we are currently in the middle of this great Study entitled Refined – Finding Joy in the Midst of the Fire. I am your host, Carol McLeod.

Refined: Day 16

This is your friend, Carol McLeod, and you are listening to Defiant Joy Radio. Forgiveness is just so hard sometimes, isn’t it? When people step on our feelings or even just ignore us, it’s just so difficult to forgive the offender. However, a significant part of finding joy in the middle of the fire is simply choosing to forgive. Welcome to this Bible Study that I have entitled “Refined – Finding Joy In the Midst of the fire.”

Refined: Day 14

This is Carol McLeod and I am excited to study the Word of God with you today! Moses heard the voice of God from the fire of the burning bush. Fires are often the places where we have an awareness of God that nothing else brings.  Fires can also turn us into pure gold Christians when we are finally able to reflect the face of our Savior. Welcome to Refined – Finding Joy in the Midst of the Fire.

Refined: Day 13

This is Carol McLeod, your host on Defiant Joy Radio. Why did God choose to use a man named Moses? Moses was a murderer, a wilderness dweller and a man who resisted God. Yet God still chose Moses for one of the most significant assignments ever given to a man. Perhaps there is hope for God to use someone like you and someone like me.
