Take courage! Jesus always shows up in the middle of storms and simply wonders if you have room for Him in your boat! Is your boat too full of worry, fear, anxiety, or addictive behaviors? Jesus wants to get into the boat with you in the middle of your storm! Today, let’s take the time to clean out our boats and make room for Jesus! This is Bible teacher and author, Carol McLeod, and I am so glad that you have joined me today on Defiant Joy radio.
Jesus will never leave one of His own children to fend for themselves in the midst of the storm. Jesus always responds to His own and He has promised to never leave nor forsake you. Even though the storm may not have cleared yet, be diligent to look for Jesus IN the middle of your storm. I am certain He is there and even on His way to you! This is Carol McLeod and I am honored that you have joined me on Defiant Joy radio!
Are you battered and bruised from a raging storm? Maybe … just perhaps … You are exactly where God wants you to be! I am sure the disciples wondered why Jesus allowed their boat to encounter stormy seas. The disciples entered the storm by divine instruction! They were obedient to their Savior by getting into the boat. It is as simple as this … God allows His children into a storm so that He can perform a miracle! This is Carol McLeod, thank you for joining me today on Defiant Joy radio!
Today, Jesus wants to take your “if only’s” and turn them into something new! Our “if only’s” are birthed out of what we can see in the natural. I want to encourage you to look towards heaven today to not let your lack, circumstances or your pain consume you. God wants to do something different in you and through you so that His power can be revealed to others. This is Carol McLeod, Bible teacher and author. Thank you for joining me today on Defiant Joy! Radio.
Do you think that there could be more valuable questions to ask when you are facing life’s challenges? WHAT IF … what if, is the wrong question? Over the course of the next few days we are going to see how the call of destiny won over Jesus’s personal pain. We will be reminded of how pain and grief can be laid aside for ministry to happen. Today … let’s begin to ask another question despite our weaknesses. What can I do to further the Kingdom of God? This is Carol McLeod and you are listening to Defiant Joy Radio
WHAT IF you worship rather than worry? WHAT IF you praised rather than panicked? WHAT IF you trusted in the Lord with all of your heart? WHAT IF you listened to the voice of the Lord and determined to stay in His presence? You can be sure and certain that the Lord is fighting for you and that He has never lost a battle yet. Keep your eyes on Him and not on what you see in the natural. Your battle belongs to the Lord! This is Carol McLeod, thank you for joining me today on Defiant Joy! radio.
We are gaining truth from the principles found in the Word of God so we know how to fight our battles. Don’t expect to be defeated when you are in a battle.

All you have to do is turn your attention to the Lord! This is Carol McLeod and you are listening to Defiant Joy! Radio.
What if you are in a battle to learn the power of praise? One of the most powerful weapons of warfare is your ability to praise and worship.

Time spent in worship leaves a legacy for generations to come! This is Carol McLeod and you are listening to Defiant Joy Radio!
If you are in a battle today, don’t blame God for what you are going through! God’s will for your life is for purpose, healing, and freedom.
