S2, Ep. 20: Rain or Rockets, God is There

  

  

It happened right after breakfast. A thundering and loud BOOM shook a military base in Afghanistan. There was dust everywhere, like that of an enraged sandstorm. Shattered buildings, walls caved in, and a video revealed the story of how 1,500 pounds of high explosives threatened the lives of those in the military base.

But there was a burnt and twisted piece of metal from that vehicle-borne improvised explosive device that revealed another story. Our host kept that twisted metal piece as a reminder of God’s protection for him.

In this episode of Coffee With Jesus, Todd takes a deep breath and describes what happened that morning. Through his story, he reminds us that regardless of how big or small our problems may seem, God is there for us.

Listen to this episode to see how God carries us through the storms of this life. Do not let the storms of this life overwhelm you. Reach out to Him. Be encouraged to take your problems to God, whether big or small.

S2, Ep. 19: What is YOUR Christian Journey?

  

  

If someone asks you, “What is your Christian journey?” Would you have a response?

In this episode of Coffee With Jesus, our guest Sarah Tyler shares her story—a journey from walking in fear and bondage to living in hope and freedom. Sara narrates how she grew up in a controlling household, forbidden to have friends or go to church.

How could a caged little bird turn into a freed and joyful mockingbird that would never cease singing?

Something happened one night in 1969 that transformed her fear into a never-ending joy. What happened in her life that changed the course of her journey? Why does she live now with a loving urgency to share her journey of true joy, hope, and confidence everywhere she goes?

Listen to this episode to know what changed Sarah’s life. Through her story, you will see how God brought blessing in the midst of her struggles and filled her with peace. Be encouraged to learn that in the same way God clothed her with His presence, He can embrace you and take you by the hand.

This episode invites us to reflect on our Christian journey. Listen to Sarah’s story to learn how you can share your journey and bring encouragement to others.

S2, Ep. 18: Give it Up! (Lent 2022)

  

  

Did you find the plastic baby in the King Cake this year?

King Cakes, parades, parties and celebrations. People love to talk about Mardi Gras, but when it comes to Ash Wednesday and Lent, the conversation tends to die down. Penitence is kind of a downer. Sacrifice is hard. 

But neither have to be.

In this episode of “Coffee With Jesus,” our host has a slightly different take on Lent, than most people. The Bible tells us:

“To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice.” ~Proverbs 21:3

Join us as our host shares the true purpose behind Lent, and explains his own slightly less orthodox approach to using this time to grow closer to our Father in Heaven. In “Give it Up!” you’ll hear both the successes and failures of our hosts personal journey.

While our current Lenten season may be close to over, or while Easter may have already passed, the lessons learned are valuable throughout the year. Listen and be encouraged. Then, develop your own strategy for growing in your walk.

S2, Ep. 17: How Do You Stop All-Consuming Anxiety?

  

  

The amount of constant decision-making we have to do every day is insane. It is aggravated by the things occurring in the world around us—things that we have no control of whatsoever. The worry we felt yesterday may have increased to stress today, and by tomorrow, anxiety may be taking over.

So, how can we stop anxiety when it shows up? We know God promised us peace beyond all understanding. Yet, how do we get there?

In this episode of Coffee With Jesus, our hosts Todd and Sara go over the blueprint to tackle anxiety when it shows up:

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

Listen to this episode to learn a practical way to apply that verse to your day-to-day life. No problem is too big or too small for God to care about it. God cares about you.

So, do not be anxious; present your case to God through prayer and thanksgiving. He longs to hear your requests; let him help you.

S2, Ep. 16: True Tithing: Giving or Helping Others?

  

  

You’re sitting in the pew. There is an usher standing on either side. Then you see it…the offering plate. How much should you put in? What if you don’t carry cash? Do you write a check? Who uses checks anymore?

While countless sermons have been preached on tithing, our host has some rather unorthodox views on the topic.

Is tithing really about putting money in an offering plate or is there something more to it?

You’ve heard it all before: “God loves a cheerful giver!” “Give and you’ll be blessed beyond measure!” “Giving to the church is one of God’s commands!” What you may not have heard is the real reason God encourages us to give and what tithing truly means: providing HOPE to others.

In this episode of Coffee With Jesus, we look to the Bible to discover the history of tithing, from Abraham to the early church. Through biblical study and biblical example, we’ll discover what most sermons leave out: the true purpose behind our giving.

They year 2022 is proving to be even crazier and more stressful than both 2020 and 2021.
