“Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.” | Romans 10:17 (emphasis added)
Pin for later:
If you’re anything like me, you’ve thought of a million ways to be spending this time of isolation. With in-person socialising out of the question, many of us have had to learn to become resourceful in order to remain sane during those endless days at home. We’re challenged to use this time wisely, to remain productive and focus on the things we can control in a time of uncertainty. From at-home workouts to home reorganisation to sorting out life admin, the internet has so much to offer on how we should be spending our time.
Now, I’m all about productivity but some days, I’m merely in survival mode. All I can manage is to simply get through the day. The thought of picking up a book, moving my body or revising a personal budget is overwhelming. On these #thestruggleisreal days, my go to activity (other than watching movies) is listening to podcasts. Better yet, podcasts which will have me laughing and/or build my faith. I love that podcasts require minimal effort with maximum reward. All you need to do is listen and you walk away with greater insight, wisdom and knowledge.
To share a little of that insight, wisdom and knowledge with you, here are 5 podcasts I’m loving at the moment that I believe will build your faith.
Disclaimer: These podcast recommendations are based on my personal tastes that I hope others will also enjoy. It is by no means an exhaustive list of the podcasts I regularly listen to nor are they listed in order of preference.
1. God Conversations
Hosted by Tania Harris, this podcast covers the various ways in which God speaks to us, why He speaks through different means and how we can better cultivate conversations with God. I have found these podcasts incredibly interesting to listen to, especially the ones on the topic of God dreams!
2. I Am Adamant
Based on Lisa Bevere’s book, ‘I am Adamant’, this podcast series is all about finding God’s truth in all areas of life and having the confidence to speak and live out His truth in a world where all is viewed as relative. With world class guests, this podcast features insightful perspectives that will keep you on the edge of your seat!
3. The Good Life
Stevie and Sazan Hendrix are a beautiful couple and influencers who are unashamedly after God’s heart. These two are so relatable and cover a wide range of topics across life and faith. Insights provided by guests add much value to the evident wisdom that both Stevie and Sazan display, delivering absolute quality!
4. Kris Vallotton
Key to the pastoral team at Bethel Church, Pastor Kris has a highly anointed prophetic gift and an ability to shift mindsets. Sermons featured in this podcast series are thought provoking and usually encourage me to open up my Bible and re-read scripture from an entirely new perspective!
5. She Laughs
A conversational podcast between two vivacious African American women, Kristal and Tanisha. The podcasts cover very relevant topics for both Christian and non-Christian listeners. Viewpoints shared are biblically based in a manner that is full of truth and grace.
