On this Good Life episode, I’m taking you to my room of peace—my office! This is where I write, research, think, pray, and ponder what the Lord has been teaching me.
Even though I can’t see it with my eyes, it matters to me what’s in my office because each item plays a special role in reminding me that life is good. This audio tour just might inspire you to create your own room of peace—perhaps with a room or corner in your home—but more importantly, in your heart.
If you’ve been listening to my Good Life podcast episodes, I hope you’re beginning to see what the good life really is. And I’ll bet your good life looks pretty similar to mine!
Perhaps you haven’t been to a Lionel Richie concert (if that’s your thing) or ventured out on an epic road trip in a camper or traveled to Oxford—all of which are good life moments to me. But I bet there are things in your life that remind you of God’s goodness and the way He’s working through you.
On the surface, the book of Amos doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life. However, every condemnation he gives serves as an invitation, a call for us to “seek God and live” (Amos 5:4). Amos’ prophesy prompts us to care for others—displaying true righteousness, not just religious ritual—and the result will change you and those around you. You’ll discover Amos is promoting the God life, and the God life is the good life!
Join me for this 8-session video-based study of the book of Amos, and together we’ll unearth the gems hidden within one of the most overlooked books in the Bible. You’ll be assured of God’s presence, grow deeper in faith, and find renewed hope that life is good … even when it’s not.
Today the microphone has been flipped around in the podcast closet. Instead of me asking the questions and interviewing a special guest, I’m going to be the one who’s interviewed. Doesn’t that sound fun?
Is it just me, or are you sometimes not quite sure how to pray? Well, I found something in the ancient Old Testament book of Amos that gives a great framework for how to pray, and you are going to love it.
Today you’ll learn three ways to pray that will boost your confidence, draw you closer to God, and guarantee that God hears you. Thankfully, the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness when it comes to praying as we ought. And, since Jesus is interceding for us at the right hand of the Father (Romans 8:34), we, like Amos, can intercede for others.
