In Psalm 73, the Psalmist frets over the prosperity of the wicked. They seem to be living a carefree life…while the righteous are continually plagued and punished. When he tries to understand it, it’s too oppressive for him..UNTIL . . .
I picture my walk with the Lord as a fine-tuned engine. When I maintain my spirit through Bible study, prayer and meditation, it purrs. I can easily avoid the pitfalls the devil throws in my way, be at peace with life’s interruptions, and get great mileage from the fruits of the spirit. But, . . .
How is it possible to actually have power through weakness? God revealed many things to the Apostle Paul, some so magnificent he couldn’t even write about. But along with these revelations, God gave him a thorn in his flesh. Why?
Are you tired of being weighed down by the sin in your life? What can you do about it? Is forgiveness possible? How? Barbara Sandbek shares how in today's episode of "Grace Notes".
How do we crucify ourselves and still live? Christ’s sacrifice was beneficial to us, but how is our sacrifice beneficial to Him? Why does it matter what sacrifice we make? Why would specific order matter in making them?
A father’s job is to GUIDE his children into what God has for THEM to do, not do it for them. In other words, he should be their coach, and teach THEM how to win. Today on Grace Notes, our host Barbara Sandbek will share some thoughts on what it takes to be a good father.

It’s been said that man can live 40 days without food, 10 days without water, 4 minutes without air – but only a few seconds without HOPE. But before we place our HOPE IN something, we need to know - Can it be trusted? In this edition of "Grace Notes", Barb Sandbek shares where to place your hope.
A man's life is governed by his thoughts. He will ultimately become what he dwells upon most in his mind. This is the reason for Paul's instruction in Romans 12 verse 2, "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind". It’s important that we THINK RIGHT THOUGHTS. That’s the subject of our current series on Grace Notes. Barbara Sandbek will elaborate on what it means to think about things that are noble. So put your thinking cap on and have a listen…
Barbara Sandbek will complete our study on ‘Thinking Right Thoughts’. Philippians 4 verse 8 has been our text for this series. Through studying each phrase we’ve discovered that we need to focus on things of the Lord - things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable. TRUE things are God’s WORD. NOBLE things are God’s WAYS. RIGHT things are God’s WILL. PURE things are God’s WISDOM. LOVELY things are God’s WORKS. and ADMIRABLE things are God’s WONDERS. These and only these are excellent and praise-worthy things on which to think. Paul's exhortation to "think about such things" is followed by a second exhortation in his next verse, "put it into practice". So, as we conclude, let see how right thinking produces right actions.
