We’re taught to focus on others over ourselves, and having a servant’s heart is certainly Christlike way to live! But too many people forget to extend the same kind of grace and kindness toward themselves that they’re careful to offer those around them. Being good to yourself...whether in the form of a day off with no errands and all rest, a few stolen minutes with your journal to capture the thoughts of your heart, or a much-needed lunch conversation with a good friend…can make all the difference in your heart and outlook! What do you do to treat yourself with a little extra kindness? We want to hear!

Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

We all desire more than just the endurance of our daily routines. But often we feel limited and stuck, as if we’re merely existing instead of living. That’s not the way it was meant to be. God intends the humanity in each of us to be deeply experienced, lavishly enjoyed, and exuberantly celebrated. In fact, this is what the gospel is all about. Matt Heard invites us on a journey of discovery – to see how Christ yearns to restore humanity to what God originally intended. Spend the hour with us as we learn how to live Life with a Capital L (Multnomah, ISBN# 978-1-60142-446-4).

Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Whether or not we mean to do it, most of live behind a mask…or a pile of them. The people we are in our hearts and homes can look very different from the people we are at church, or on Facebook and Instagram. What if we chose to live differently? What if we chose to be vulnerable and honest and messy and needy…daring to expose our blemishes, imperfections and insecurities? What if we took off our masks…all of them? Michelle Watson returns to Mid-Morning to explain how God invites us to take our masks and leave them at the foot of His cross and to receive in exchange the crown symbolizing our identity as a child of the Most High God.

When was the last time you were over-awed by God’s majesty? Have you ever stood in stunned silence at His holiness and power? In our shallow, self-centered age, things like truth and reverence might seem outdated and lost. Yet…we’re restless. Our failed attempts to ease our unrest point to an ancient ache for an experience of the holy. In Friday’s encore Mid-Morning, Drew Dyck, author of Yawning at Tigers (Thomas Nelston, ISBN# 978-1-4002-0545-5) makes a compelling case that what we seek awaits us in the untamed God of Scripture…a God who is mysterious, yet powerfully present. His raw majesty, love, and power become more real and transformative than we could ever imagine.
