Praise & Shine

Wake up to inspiring music with an inspiring message Sunday morning on Quicksie 98.3. Praise & Shine every Sunday morning at 8 AM.

Unanswered Prayer // Praise & Shine

Sometimes unanswered prayers are a blessing of protection. It’s comforting knowing that our God never makes a mistake, and He has great plans for us.

God could perform every miracle, answer every prayer, and perform acts of omnipotence to prove His power, but He doesn’t. His desire isn’t to force obedience from acts of power. What God wants is for us to know Him intimately as our Father, Friend, Comforter, Counselor, Lord–willingly, not under compulsion. Only faith can summon a response of love. Untested faith is unreliable faith, and without faith, it is impossible to love God.

We don’t grow in comfort. It’s in hard and discouraging times that don’t make sense; that our faith is strengthened and made more resilient. It is in these times that we lean into the Lord even more.

The best days are still ahead, so get ready! Stay in high anticipation of what God has planned for you, and do not be discouraged by unanswered prayer.

Thank You // Praise & Shine

It is easy to sometimes forget how many blessings we have in our lives. Our lives are filed with friends and family who care deeply for us.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Life is not always easy, perfect or peaceful. But we can always have a heart full of thankfulness if we remember who gives us reasons to be thankful.

God Will Provide // Praise & Shine

There are over 169 verses in the bible that show us the ways God provides for our needs. “My God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus”. Philippians 4:19

Like a good parent however God will never give us something that will harm us. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be difficult times. “More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces home and home doesn’t put us to shame because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” Romans 5:3-5

God has plans to prosper us, and not harm us. Plans to give us a future filled with hope. Jeremiah 29:11 We must simply trust Him.
