Has it really been one week since Easter? Is there anyone else who thinks time is going way too fast? Wow.
This speed of time makes me more aware of the need to live fully engaged with all God gives.
Because. I know there’s no boundary of time in God’s realm. So. When I love with the love of God, my love has no end. Or. When I am kind with the kindness of God’s love, my kindness has no end. This is true of every gift of God, key to living the best life.
I’m in the process of learning about life in this new season.
By the way, I’ve come to understand that being in continual process is a gift from God–a part of going soul deep–and becoming stronger in relationship with God and one another.
I’m grateful for God and all those who are walking with me.
The thing is . . . I’m not saying it’s been easy . . . but there’s been joy in the sorrow of loss. I’ve learned, again, that God places a new song within our soul when we step through the doorway of a new season. I don’t want to miss the new song during this time. So. I’m leaning in and listening.
Life-lessons keep rolling in. I realize more than ever that God gives us the gift and choice to shift. . .
going beyond our experience and perspective
to see what God sees within us, around us, and ahead of us . . .
to see more.
As I am learning to navigate this new time of life, I’ve seen how the “more” is the gift of relational love with God and one another. It’s what each life-lesson is wrapped in. This. is. truth.
Also– you might notice that I used the word, but, a bit more than usual in Studio 365’s podcast show. I’ve been asked:
“It’s one of my favorite words. It connects us to something more . . . the more of our story . . . the more God has for us. When you come to the word, but, in the God-word. Ask, “But, what?”
God’s Word is the place where a piece of God’s more is revealed.”
Here’s a recap of some of the teachings that are coming out of my life-lessons in Studio 365‘s daily devotional podcast.
Also, I’m so excited to tell you that Studio 365 will be starting a new show very soon!.
I will begin with the week-long series, The Hour Has Come, for Easter.

Tuesday April 3, 2018 Refuge: It’s my birthday–I’m so grateful and excited for this day–and love to be with family and friends all. day. long. In this episode we talked about how God waits for us to come and see beyond our self-imposed limitations. The Psalmist writes an honest prayer of surrender that opens the door to more than can be imagined:
In you, O LORD,
I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In your righteousness deliver me
and rescue me;
incline your ear to me
and save me.
(Psalm 71:1-2, NRS)
Wednesday, April 4, 2018 The Rock:
We don’t belong in the darkness. The darkness can convince us that we don’t have enough strength to move away from it. But. It’s not true. God, who is our Rock, provides the strength to move into the light, revealing a strength which never ends, overpowering whatever we face.
We can either manage life with our own strength
or through the power of the Rock.
Thursday, April 5, 2018 The Light of Hope: God, our Light, is the source of hope in the darkness of this world. The darkness is unable to comprehend the Light. (https://www.studio365daily.com/thursday-april-5-2018-light-hope/)
Friday, April 6, 2018 Lean On Me: There’s a beautiful and holy moment in the delivery room when everyone leans in with anticipation of the baby taking the first breath. It’s a picture of you and I leaning into God, who delivers us from all the things of the darkness–the evil, the hard, and all the things, which hold us hostage. (https://www.studio365daily.com/friday-april-6-2018-lean/)
Saturday, April 7, 2018 Healed: When we know God wants more for us in the real and raw of life, unexplainable peace reaches deep into the soul, which brings freedom and ultimately produces healing. It’s amazing to have peace in a painful time of life. Peace is the ultimate healing in the big and small details of the hard of life.
There’s healing from the wounds of the world
when we step into the presence of the Healer.
At the end of the day, we can have confidence that God will heal us from the hurt and pain of this world. (https://www.studio365daily.com/saturday-april-7-2018-healed/)
Our four little human beings are all joy. This picture says more . . .
Well, that’s a wrap for the last two weeks.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to learn more . . . and to share more at Studio 365 . . . every. single. day.
I hope you will stop by Studio 365 and share it with others. I’m so grateful for you–Kerrie
