Let It Go and Receive God’s Best – S2E20

Season 2 Finale Episode 

The holiday season is now among us. And 2020 is quickly coming to an end. Of course, it is always good to do some reflection before entering a new year. But what does it mean to let it go and receive God’s best? Well, I’m glad you asked. You see, it is always good to take some time for reflection. 

So, before 2021 comes in, take a moment, and think about your life. When you see or hear the phrase ‘Let It Go,’ what comes to mind? Are there any mistakes or bad decisions you regret? Not only that, but have you found yourself unable to move forward because of them? 

Besides that, are there people who tend to always seem to remember those errors of judgment you would like to forget? Well, whether others refuse to let go of your past missteps — it is time for you to let it go and get ready to receive God’s best.

New Things to Come – S2-DE20

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

The LORD said: “Forget what happened long ago! Don’t think about the past. I am creating something new. There it is! Do you see it? I have put roads in deserts, streams in thirsty lands.” 

Isaiah 43:18-19, CEV

Devotional 

We all have a past. And past mistakes and bad decisions can hold us captive. And much like the children of Israel, those former things tag along for the ride as we travel into what’s next. So, it can keep us going in circles. 

In fact, it’s those mistakes of the past that can hinder us from seeing what lies ahead—something new

Thus, God wants us to forget past mistakes, and look to those new mercies which are available each morning. And not only that, He is working on something new.

Peace in Stressful Times – S2E19

Gone is life as the world knew it   

When New Year’s Day 2020 came in, the resolutions began and planners made their plans for the year. Some people already had dates in 2020 scheduled well before 2019 came to an end. Most people in America had no idea that in March 2020 everything would come to a screeching halt. Because COVID-19 changed life as the world knew it. So, with all that is happening daily, there are those who are searching for peace in stressful times.

Sadly, many people have lost their lives and others have lost loved ones to the coronavirus. In May of 2020, The Harvard Gazette published the article, The lesson is to never forget, by Liz Mineo. And in it, Olga Jonas, a senior fellow at the Harvard Global Health Institute, compares COVID-19 to the deadly influenza pandemic of 1918.

The Peace of God – S2-DE19

Lady V’s Devotional Episode 

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” 

Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)

Devotional 

People long for peace. Yet, anxiety and stress can steal one’s peace of mind with overwhelming success. So how do we deal with troublesome times? 

When we look to Jesus, THE WORD, we are reminded of how He always turned to Father God in prayer. His prayer life was constant, and His trust in God never wavered.
