We know we will come through this. In the same way, we also know God will carry us, but how do we deal with the stress and anxiety while we are in the middle of the storm? Join us in this episode of Coffee With Jesus, as our host shares some practical things he has learned. During the many storms he has face, he has found ways and activities to help lower his own stress. 

When going through life’s troubles, it is important to take care of yourself spiritually, emotionally and physically. Listen as our host shares what has helped him in the past.  Give your problems up to God, let Him take care of you and find what activities will help you lower your own stress and anxiety.

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.

Special Episode: It’s Going to Be OK

  

  

They year 2022 is proving to be even crazier and more stressful than both 2020 and 2021. It feels like the craziness and the anxiety will never end.  The pandemic is still going on, food and gas prices are through the roof and the threat of nuclear war is hanging over our heads like the Sword of Damocles. 

In this special episode of Coffee With Jesus, our host would like to reassure you that in spite of all the scary things happening now and in the coming weeks…it’s going to be ok.

Say it with us:  It’s going to be ok.

God is bigger than any war or disease. God can handle all your stress and anxiety, so “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” (1 Peter 5:7). God is in control during the good times and the scary times.

Please, take a few minutes, listen to what our host has to say and know that our Father will provide you with peace and comfort.

It is going to be OK.

S2, Ep 15: Be Still, Part 2: “God Help!”

  

  

Do you have trouble being still? Is it difficult for you to quiet the chaos and draw close to God

This sequence of words may not be very appealing: “Be still, and know…” (Psalm 46:10)

First, being still is not as easy as it sounds. Second, we want to keep moving…discovering, knowing what lies ahead and what’s next… There is this natural urge to figure out and control our domains, even when doing ministry work. 

There’s so much to do and know. How can we just stop? 

This is the second part of Coffee with Jesus, episode 14 (Be Still). Co-hosts Todd and Sara talk about the struggle with domain and control. They talk about the process of “trusted knowing” and how it works. They will also share some tools you can readily use to be still and know the next step in the right direction.

Listen to the episode to know how to stop and connect with the gift of the Holy Spirit. And in doing so, learn the power behind this simple prayer: “God help!”
