Season 2 Episode 12 Spiritual Armor
I recently saw an ad on the marketplace where someone was selling two life-size knights' of armor. I thought to myself, "Who would pay that amount for an item that isn't needed in our lifetime?" However, there is a different kind of armor that is available and it's FREE -- the Armor of God. As we read today's Scripture in Ephesian 6 God tells us how to spiritually dress from head to toe every day so that we can win the war raging against us in the spiritual realms.

Season 2 Episode 11 Light Versus Darkness
Imitate God? But how does one do that? God's Word gives us very specific instructions on how to be imitators of God -- WALK IN LOVE. Today, we are reading together in the book of Ephesians chapter 5.

Season 2 Episode 10 Living The New Life
We all do it! Hold on to a piece of clothing that has a few stains and perhaps a hole too. It's comfy, right. But guess what -- it doesn't look good. Today, we read in Ephesians 4 how this also applies to our walk with Jesus. Once we are forgiven, we live a new life in Christ because He removes the stains fills the holes, then clothes us fully in HIS righteousness. What part of your "old self-closet" do you need to discard today?

Season 2 Episode 9 Prayer for Spiritual Power
Today we read in Ephesians 3 where Paul shares his heart to the Gentiles and kneels in prayer before the Lord for spiritual power so that they may be FILLED with all the fullness of God. May it also be so in us today!

Season 2 Episode 8 Rise Up!
From death to life -- wait, is that backward? Nope -- as Christians, we are opposite from the world. We are not living to die, we are dead in our sin and because of Christ, we can live! Join me today as we read together God's Word in Ephesians 2. In verse 8 circle "this is not from yourselves" and sit in that for a while. We are saved ONLY because God provided for us what NO ONE else could -- His son, Jesus Christ. So then, rise up! Live your life every day in unity with Christ.

Season 2 Episode 8 Know Who You Are In Christ
Journey with me to a book nestled in the New Testament - Ephesians. A time when Paul was in prison yet he wrote a letter of encouragement to the church of Ephesus. Today, we will begin reading all six chapters of the book of Ephesian starting with chapter one. Here we read about the Doctrine of the Gospel which is our foundational beliefs as Christian. Then we enter into a sacred section where Paul prays for spiritual insight. I love how he is so specific in his prayer. When is the last time you asked God to give you spiritual insight into your own life? Then we end the chapter reading with God's power in Christ. Did you know that the word Christian means little christ? As image-bearers of God, we should make it our daily goal to live a life that pleases HIM.

Season 2 Episode 7 Delight In God's Word
Friends, we are finishing up reading Psalm 119 during this weeks episode. The number 7 in the Bible means completion. I didn't plan for it to turn out this way but it just so happens to be episode 7 in season 2 that we wrap up reading through the longest chapter in the Bible. My hope and prayer is that your desire to delight in God's Word daily is growing day by day.

Season 2, Episode 6 God, As Our Only Friend
This week we pick back up reading together at Psalm 119 beginning with verse 73. Have you ever felt like God was your only friend? Do you remember the last time you asked Him for understanding? What about discernment? Do you believe with all of your heart, mind, and soul that God's Word is forever and firmly fixed in Heaven? Do you love His instruction? Do you hate every false way? At the end of today's reading I encourage you to find a quiet place and ask yourself these hard questions. Then, ask God if you answered honestly. Putting all of my hope in God's Word, Heather

Season 2 Episode 5 The Excellence of Love
From a retro-style hotel room in downtown Durham, NC Glenn and I sit down together the day after celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary to record an episode on LOVE. Join us as we go back to the beginning and share our own side of the dating season and answer the question, "why did you choose me as your lifemate?" Our "I-Dos" quickly ushered us into a season of trials and testing that eventually brought us to our knees in prayer and saved what we affectionately know as, "The Lamps." We've learned and are still learning (from both mistakes and wins) on the excellence of love. The reading of God's Word in this episode is found in 1 Corinthians 13.

Journey with me in today's episode as we read together Psalm 119: 33-72. Together, we will learn how Ezra's spiritual diary was penned so that we could know how to use God's Word as the Sword of the Spirit in our own lives. Teach us, Lord to: Read God's Word like Jeremiah & Ezra Study God's Word like Daniel Memorize God's Word like Hannah & Mary Meditate of God's Word like Joshua Use God's Word like Jesus, David, Paul, and Ezra Reference for Sword of the Spirit - Ephesians 6

Season 2 Episode 3 -God's Word Is A Light To Our Path
Join me on today's podcast with my kind-hearted husband, Glenn. Together we share our growing love of learning God's word and the crucial importance of knowing the true message about Himself and His salvation plan through his Son, Jesus. Have you ever thought about memorizing Scripture but have never actually taken it seriously? Or perhaps you can recite a one-liner verse such as, "For I know the plans God has for me. Plans to prosper me and not to harm me. Jeremiah 29:11" But what if I told you that without the entire chapter one misses the actual context of the Scripture. The Bible is God's Word, written by man, inspired by the Holy Spirit about God's redemptive plan for his people through his Son, Christ Jesus. Yet, we are living in a time where many have made the Word of God more about them than HIM. I did! That was until a few years ago when my husband challenged me to dig in deeper. Study, research, and learn the Bible in the whole Bible narrative. That challenge changed everything about the way I read God's word today. Recently I decided to memorize not a verse but an entire chapter for the very first time. At the age of 50 I thought I was too old for sure! I mean truly, some days I'm trying to remember a friend's name I've known for years. Or better yet, I forget why I walked into the room. I forget appointments, birthdays, and items at the grocery store if left to my own brain. Thank goodness for technology, calendars, and electronic to-do list!! Remembering has never come easy for me. However, as of last night, I recited by memory an entire chapter of Psalms in less than one week. Thanks be to God I will forever have His word written in my heart. I said it aloud so many times throughout this past week that my husband has it almost memorized too! Can I encourage you to do the same? Choose an entire chapter in the Bible, write it down, and every single day meditate on one verse. Say it over and over again all day and night until you have it memorized. Then the next day add a new verse. Then on day three add the third verse and so on until you have the entire chapter memorized. I can promise you that nothing is quite as wonderful as having God's Word written on your heart forever! Memorize Chapter Psalm 1 - 4.25.21 Today's Reading Psalm 119: 1-32

Season 2 Episode 2 - Challenge Accepted?
On last week's podcast, I shared with the listeners my experience regarding the Scripture found in Romans 12:2 and how God used the same verse 25 years ago and then again recently to teach me two very different things. The first time I read the Scripture I was walking out of a debacle life and back through the church doors. It was the first part of the verse that was profound to me -- "Do not be conformed to this world." When I felt tempted to go back to my former ways, I clung to this verse. It worked! But it wasn't until recently when God brought me back to the same verse but it was the second part of the Scripture that made me pay attention -- "...but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. THEN you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will." So how do we as Christians RENEW OUR MIND? On today's podcast, I not only share with you how God tells us to do this but I also have a challenge for each listener. I do hope you will accept the challenge! I believe it will not only renew minds but soften hearts, and change lives. God's word is alive and living! Scripture Reference: Romans 12:2 2 Timothy 3:15&16 Today's Scripture Reading: Psalm 1

Season 2 Episode 1 - Minding Our Thoughts Pleases The Lord
It is with a childlike excitement that I share with you my decision to step back into the chapter reading of God's Word each Tuesday. Towards the end of Season 1, I learned about other platforms offering Bible readings but in a more professional setting. At that time I decided in my mind and heart to lay the podcast aside. Six months went by and nothing from the Lord affirmed me to move forward so I came to the resolve that Season 1 was just that -- a one and done. Then a few weeks ago a surprise call came from a close friend letting me know how much she missed listening to the podcast each week. At that time I honestly believed I wasn't going to do this again. Little did I know then that that phone call was the first of several Godwink's to get my attention. Sprinkled throughout the weeks that followed I received an unexpected call from a church member inquiring about it, then a lunch with a new friend who encouraged me to continue on. Finally, the last wink happened yesterday at church from the pulpit when one of our retiring staff said to the congregation she had served for 30 years -- do WHATEVER God has called you to do and don't ever quit. So there I was sitting in the pew whispering once again to God, "Yes, Lord. Yes." And with that yes, here I am today kicking off Season 2 podcast, "A Light To My Path." My hope and prayer are for each of you to fall in love with the Word of God as much as He is in love with us! Tuesday's chapter reading is found in Romans 12 - A Living Sacrifice.

On today's podcast, we are celebrating many wonderful things! First, we celebrate all of the work, good and hard, that the Lord has done in our lives over these past ten years. We are also celebrating the end of Season 1 of the Light To My Path podcast. 43 episodes later and one thing remains true -- It has been a joy to read God's word to each of you these past few months. And lastly, we are celebrating G's birthday today. I asked him to pick out today's music for the background and in G fashion he picked something that might surprise you. Join us as we laugh, share a story then a birthday kiss, and read together in the Word of God Psalms 139.

BR#41 King of Friendships
Friends are a beautiful part of our everyday life. I sure do love my friends in the faith. However, I haven't always chosen wisely and for a long time in my life, I was hurt - rejected- betrayed - and even lied about - and at times I was the one who rejected - betrayed - and lied. We're not the only one who have felt such deep pain. God was all too familiar with the fair-weathered friendships of His own people, the Israelites. And let us not forget Jesus. Two of His closest friends betrayed and rejected Him - Judas and Peter. People fail us. Jesus though, He never will! Today, we read together in 1 Samuel 8 as we learn God's own people were demanding a King. They had forgotten their one TRUE KING and wandered away spiritually from confidence in Christ into the counterfeit confidence of someone else. Friend, what are you seeking in others today that Jesus lovingly wants to give to you for all eternity? He will forever be our GREATEST friend.

BR#40 The Joy of Forgiveness
Today, September 11th marks the memorial of one of our country's greatest tragedies. While we will never forget the hurt and deep pain that was inflicted upon our people it is important that we forgive the ones who recklessly cause such damage and heartache. Forgiveness isn't just for the big disappointments in life, forgiveness is also for the smallest of transgressions. Did someone say something unkind to you? Have you judged someone recently? How about that time you mistreated a loved one? What about that time you picked up the phone to talk to someone else instead of talking to God about it? We live in a world filled with transgressions! Together we will learn how God restores joy into our souls when forgiveness is extended and/or received. Let's open our Bibles today as we read Psalms 32.

BR#39 For what do we labor?
Today is Labor Day. A calendar holiday of rest gifted to those of us who labor hard throughout the year. But what is it exactly that we labor for these days? Join me today as I read from the book of Ecclesiastes 4. Together, we learn God's truth about the loneliness of wealth and how the chasing of the wind is both miserable and futile. But, laboring after the One true God, the Creator of everything including the wind, is work worthy of our labor.

BR#38 Much Forgiveness, Much Love
Join me today as I share my sin and a part of my brokenness that continuously guides me into deeper healing that only Jesus can do. Together, we will read in Luke 7. Forgiveness is a gift far greater than anything we can receive. For it is Christ who came to earth, died on the Cross to forgive both you and me. Friend, who do you need to love like that today?

BR#37 What are you seeking most?
Life interrupted. It happens to all of us! One day we find ourselves living in rhythm with God's peace, love, and complete trust only to find ourselves catapulted the next day into anxiety, dislike, and fear. It is in the latter days than one's faith and belief in Christ is fully evident to those around us. It is here that we realize what we seek most is our heart's greatest desire. Do we seek to get back to peace, love, and trust? Or do we seek the only one, Jesus, who gifts us these things? Are we looking to be satisfied temporarily here on earth or sanctified for a life of eternity with Christ Jesus? What, friend, are you seeking most today? Join me today as we read together in the book of Hebrews 11 -- Living By Faith.
