No matter the work you do, this episode is packed with wisdom and insight on how to navigate the confusion of the transition period we find ourselves in, honor God in our work and receive creative solutions to the problems we face today. We look to the past and see what God has done in order to build our faith and expectation for what God is doing and about to do during our lifetime.

This is a very special podcast with John Thomas, including an epic, uplifting spoken word at the end! We pray you are encouraged as you continue to seek the Lord for wisdom and do what He has called you to do.

2.13 Kristi and Rebecca: Dreams, Part 3

Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night from an intense dream with your pulse racing, feeling both unsettled and afraid? Us too. Try as we might to forget the dream and go back to sleep, it lingers and with it the unease that it brought to us. In light of these dark dreams, some of us carry heavy burdens with them throughout the day. Others pray to stop having dreams altogether. But there is a third option: To get God’s perspective on the dream and hear him speak through it or use it to bring us revelation about his Kingdom. Join Kristi and Rebecca in the third part of the Dream Series for an episode spent discussing the dreams that sometimes feel dark or heavy but still contain a powerful message of God’s grace, power, and sovereignty. *If you're interested in having one of your dreams interpreted in an upcoming episode, please leave a short synopsis of your dream, including any emotions you experienced, colors you saw, and a title for the dream, here: https://dare2believe.info/contact/ ...

3.08 Dr. Charles and Lindsey Karuku: From Riots to Revival

  Dare to Believe is based outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Just a few short weeks ago, the killing of George Floyd sparked riots that literally set our city on fire. Pain, fear, and rage swirled for several intense nights and still linger in the atmosphere. Even still, God is not surprised. He’s not caught off guard. And he’s not without a plan to bring incredible beauty from the ashes.   Enter husband and wife pastoral team Dr. Charles and Lindsey Karuku, local pastors stirred by the Holy Spirit to go down to our ground zero and pray on Pentecost Sunday. Little did they know that God was about to start pouring out his goodness and glory--and then keep on pouring. In this timely and powerful episode, Kristi and Rebecca hear about the radical things God is doing--healing, freeing, saving, and delivering people in the very heart of our city’s darkness.   Great moves of God have ended because of racism, what if this one begins because of it?     Episode Highlights Include:   This is not a political issue, this is not even a social economic issue, firstly it is a spiritual issue. Reconciliation isn’t possible without first being reconciled to God—both what that means and how to do it. Forgiveness isn’t a feeling, it’s a choice. We have no political agenda, only Kingdom agenda. How to do what God asks of you without sacrificing your family (and he’s not asking you to sacrifice your family).    Connect to the Unity Movement and the Karukus:   ...

2.09 Dr. Kim Bushman: Change is a Process

“I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.” (Romans 7:15). We can all relate to the words of Apostle Paul when it comes to missing opportunities to do what we want to do and instead doing things we don’t want to do. For all of the Bible reading, Sunday mornings attended, and prayers offered we can still find ourselves repeating pattern we don’t want to continue. Is it possible that there’s a psychological component to this? Is it possible that even though our spirits are saved and renewed when we receive Christ, our brains are wired into certain patterns surrounding sinful and harmful behaviors? The short answer: Yes! And the very good news: It is possible to change and learn new behaviors. Join Kristi and Rebecca as they hear for a second time from Dr. Kim Bushman, psychologist, clinical owner, and incredible woman of the Lord as she discusses this and other topics including following God’s leading in business and how to find a Christian counselor (see episode 01.15 for her first appearance on the show). Episode highlights include: Change is a process We were designed to tolerate stress. “I can actually tolerate stress.” We’re not meant to carry other people’s distress. We’re to walk with them, not carry them. Contact Kim: watersedgechc.com ...
