Heart Lessons Podcast

Although at times life circumstances can make it seem as though God's still small voice is too small or too distant to hear, the truth is that He is always working in the hearts of His children, guiding and prompting us to walk well in the unique story He has written for each one of us. The Heart Lessons Podcast features conversations centered on how God moves in the hearts of His beloved daughters to help us best navigate the path He has for us, the grief, the grit, the grace, and everything in between. Real women. Real stories. Real faith.

In today's episode of the Heart Lessons Podcast, I chat with Cara Whitney, wife of Dan Whitney (aka Larry the Cable Guy). Cara shares her testimony of coming to trust Christ as her personal Savior and how caring for her horses gave her a unique glimpse into the heart of God. We also talk about how Christians can better support those who are just beginning to pursue a relationship with Christ and the importance of loving and disciplining those new to the Christian faith.

Takeaway Truths: 

How Christians behave has no bearing on whether or not the resurrection happened.

We can cast our cares on the Lord because He is in control.

God gives us the choice to love Him by giving us a choice not to love Him.

Christians are quick to judge but not to give you the good news.

God designed my life this way and it is the best way.

You can not expect lonely and hurting people to walk into church, but Jesus made house calls. He rarely said, "I love you," but showed it in action.

Get to know a new believer and tailor your discipleship to their specific needs.

The group that needs to be louder is the group that loves.

Allow yourself time to get to know Jesus after coming to faith.

On today's episode, I chat with Tracey Murtha, wife of the late Greg Murtha. We chat about what Greg's cancer journey was like from her perspective and some of the challenges of living without her beloved husband, but mostly we talk about how Greg's cancer diagnosis opened the Murtha's eyes to the needs of the people around them, and how Tracey continues to live with this same love and compassion for reaching others.

Takeaway Truths:

More is caught than taught.

Our greatest area of service often springs from our greatest pain.

Obey the Lord. We don't have to fix the other person, we just have to do the small thing and He will do the rest.

Choose joy in the moment because you won't get that moment back.

Cling to the hope of Jesus because He's got you. He didn't bring you this far to abandon you.

Live in the present and the Holy Spirit will prompt you to serve whoever is in front of you.

Only two things will last into eternity: the word of God and the souls of men. That is where we need to invest our time.

Greg was not fearful of taking his last breath. He was all about making the breath before that one count.
