Meditating on Psalm 131

What do we do when the problems are too big for us? Many of us can relate to feeling overwhelmed these days.

Join me today as we meditate on Psalm 131, and learn what it means to rest in our Father’s lap. We will do a slow down activity and listen to Scripture. Added bonus: I even throw in a little attachment and regulation info. into this episode! I hope you come away from this 10 minute podcast feeling renewed.

May you be encouraged on your journey with Jesus.

Soul-Care Reflections: Boundaries and Social Media

Today’s episode is a first! I’m talking about boundaries and social media on both the podcast and the blog today. Why? Because it’s an important topic, and it’s one that I find myself navigating constantly.

In this episode, I will list four boundaries that I am finding helpful for forming my own healthy relationship with social media. I hope you’ll find them helpful as well! To read the transcript of today’s episode, visit my blog at: pauserenewnext.com.

May you be encouraged on your journey with Jesus.

Soul-Care Reflections: Jars of Clay

Feeling a bit fragile? Join me for today’s reflection episode as we focus on one of my all-time favorite Scripture passages: 2 Corinthians 4.

We’ll start with a grounding exercise, then use the mindfulness practice of deep reading as we pay attention to the themes of the text.

I hope you come away from this episode reminded that even in your fragility, as a fellow jar of clay, you are filled with the light and life of your Savior, and that your light and momentary troubles are working towards an eternal weight of glory.

May you be encouraged on your journey with Jesus.

Grace Walk Farm: A Conversation with Amber Benge

Grab a cup of coffee or tea and come sit down for a conversation among friends. On today’s episode, my real-life friend, Amber Benge, joins me for a chat about life transitions, homesteading, and faith. You will come away from this conversation so encouraged.

Amber explains how the Lord, through health issues and an overload of stress, helped her pare down her life to the essentials. A couple of years ago, she and her husband bought some acreage and began a new family adventure called Grace Walk Farm. Amber has learned and grown so much through tending her garden, and in this episode she shares how much the Lord is teaching her in that sacred place.

To learn more about Amber, Grace Walk Farm, and her upcoming book, please visit her website. If something you heard on today’s podcast resonated with you, I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment under today’s show notes or join the conversation on Instagram or Facebook.

Soul-Care Reflections: Grace for the Body

What happens when our bodies make us slow down? In this soul-care episode, I am sharing about how a recent injury is making me not just “talk the talk” about slowing down, but actually, physically, slow down.

Having grace for our physical bodies is an integral part of soul-care. In the same way, having grace for the body of Christ is an integral part of our faith walk. It was no accident that God named the church his body.

Join me for a pause in your day. I hope you leave feeling renewed. May you be encouraged on your journey with Jesus.

Soul-Care Reflections: Redo for the Win

As humans, we just don’t always get things right the first time. Sometimes, we need a redo. In today’s reflection episode, I share a real-life example from the journey of parenting a six-year old.

God himself was the designer of connected parenting. He knew that our muscle memory would take precedence over our cognitive memory and that we would need re-dos.

Join me for today’s episode as we take a pause and reflect upon the grace God has given us through second chances.

May you be encouraged on your journey with Jesus.

Soul-Care Reflections: A Meditation for the Weary

Are you weary? I know I am.

Today’s Scripture meditation, found in Isaiah 40, focuses on weariness and restoration. Actually, this chapter flips the script on weariness.

Join me for an 11 minute pause in your day to renew your soul.

May you be encouraged on your journey with Jesus.

Rebuild, Restore, Renew: A Conversation with Sharon Tedford

What a joy it is to share this conversation with you, friends! Today’s podcast guest, Sharon Tedford, is an absolute delight. (And so is her British accent!) She is a worship leader, author, artist, and podcast host. It was so fun to talk with Sharon about her award-winning podcast, God in the Ordinary, and her journey into the podcasting world.

Sharon has the gift of encouragement, and I have no doubt you will come away from this podcast feeling refreshed. During our conversation she shares how the Lord led her family from living in the U.K. across the Atlantic to starting a life in Texas. As Sharon says, change does not come easily for her, but through such a dramatic move the Lord began a work in her that continues to this day. She also shares how the Lord has used Isaiah 61 in her life and her ministry, which she aptly named 61 Things.

If you’d like to learn more about Sharon and check out her music, writing, and podcast, please visit her website: 61-things.com. As discussed in the podcast, Sharon is kindly offering listeners of the Pause Renew Next Podcast a free copy of one of her watercolour paintings which you can find on her website. The passcode to receive your free copy is: podcast.
