My friends, do you trust God’s timing in your life? If we demand our own way while we are in a difficult situation in life, we will miss the Greater than Good that God has for us in those situations. You will never know God’s answers if you are intent on having your own way! I know that God is never late but I have never known Him to be early either! Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. This is Carol McLeod and I am praying that God will strengthen you with all power today no matter what you are going through.
Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. We have discovered that amidst adverse circumstances, Joseph remained faithful to God. Joseph exudes resilience, a willing heart, and portrays an attitude which knows that God is still in control. How about you? Are you resilient regardless of the attack of the enemy? In your worst moments, God is the same! He will never leave you no matter what you are going through!
There is no doubt about it, we will face difficult times throughout our lives. The hard times reveal our true character. We must choose to be men and women of excellence and integrity. The man and woman of God must choose to serve others no matter who the others are. What will you choose during hard times? Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio! I love studying the word of God with you!
One of my favorite stories in the Bible is about a young man by the name of Joseph. God provided strength and a way out when Joseph was in the pit, in prison and in the palace. God knew exactly what Joseph was going to face and provided him grace for his needs. God will do the same for you! I am your host, Carol McLeod. Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio!
Did you know that we do indeed have an enemy and that he will do anything possible to hold you back from what God has for your life. Don’t listen to that old deceiver! God has life, victory, and destiny for you! Move ahead in the greater plans and purposes that God has for your life. Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio. This is Carol McLeod and I love studying the Word of God with you.
We have been learning from the lives of heroes and heroines in the Bible that often what God has for us is greater than our human good. God’s plan will always supersede the disappointments and setbacks of your life! God is working all things together for your good! Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio. This is Carol McLeod and I am so glad you have joined me for one of my very favorite Biblical accounts in all of scripture.
Jacob has done a bit of changing in the time that we have been studying him. Did you know that God has the same plan for you? God wants you to become ALL that He has created you to be! God’s greater than good plan for your life is that you would move out of a place of fear and into a place of declaring the promises of God! This is Carol McLeod, thank you for tuning in to Defiant Joy! radio.
As we continue with our story of Jacob, have you found yourself relating to his story in anyway? One of the extraordinary pieces of the story of Jacob is that God showed up when Jacob least expected it. I am praying that God will do that for you today. Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio. This is Carol McLeod and I love studying the Bible with you.
Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio. If you haven’t heard me say this yet, you all know that I LOVE the Bible!

This is Carol McLeod, I am so glad that you have joined me here today and I do love studying the word of God with you.
How you treat people matters! Why? Because God is love. Men and woman are made in the image of God and if you believe that, how you treat others will look different from how the world treats people. When we treat others well, we show our love for God. Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio, this is Carol McLeod and I love studying the Word of God with you.
Trust! There will inevitably come a time where you will need to TRUST that God IS good and HAS good for you! Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio, this is Carol McLeod and I am so glad that you have joined me today. Let’s learn to TRUST that God will give you what HE thinks is best! He is always faithful!
As we continue in our study of Greater than Good, remember that God’s definition of good is much different than yours. God’s definition of good is based on heavenly circumstances and is for the good of eternity. Our good is based on the temporary. May I challenge you to change your expectations? Set those expectations higher than ever because God’s good is much greater than yours! Welcome to Defiant Joy! Radio. This is Carol McLeod

This is Carol McLeod and I am praying that the presence of the Lord will fill you today as you declare the good and precious promises that God has for you!
Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio! God has blessing and good for your life. Do you believe it yet? God is working on your behalf. God is working out all of your circumstances, the events in your life, and even those difficult people … He is working it ALL out in your life for HIS glory! This is Carol McLeod – now let’s open the Word of God together.
Have you ever felt like your world was falling apart? Just maybe, like Jacob, a decision has left you in a place of discouragement. When your world is falling apart, God wants you to want Him more than anything else in the world. His grace is sufficient for you today! Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio! This is Carol McLeod and I love studying the word of God with you.
Do you realize that the choices that you make when you are in adverse circumstances matter very, very much? The choices you make will affect those around you now and for generations to come. Your words and your attitudes reflect what you believe and also have a powerful impact on generations to follow. A great life is one that blesses others, tells the truth, and loves the unlovable. Will you choose a great life? It is up to you! This is Carol McLeod, and as always, I love studying the Word of God with you!
Who are you? Who were you created to BE? It is a serious mistake when we base our decisions on temporary emotions or desires. We have to refuse to let our feelings dictate our choices but rather lean in to our identity in Christ. He has great destiny, purpose, and blessing for your life! Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio. I am your host, Carol McLeod, it is a great joy to share the Word of Truth with you today.
Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio. You know, there are so many good things in this life that we desire. We all deeply desire a good life, a good marriage, a good job, and good kids. We must not limit God’s definition of good to our own human desires. My prayer is that you will not sacrifice God’s greatness in your life for mere human desires. Perhaps we should all pray the prayer that Jesus prayed, Not my will Lord, but yours alone!
If God has promised it, it is on its way! Psalm 138:8 reminds us that The Lord WILL indeed accomplish what concerns you. If God has made a promise to you, stay in a place of joyful expectation! WE are all waiting for something and it is your choice whether to wait well or to wait poorly. This is Carol McLeod. Welcome to Defiant Joy! radio.
