How To Hold On To Your Faith When All HELL Breaks Loose!

Flame by arztsamuiIt is no secret that today we are living during a time of unrest, racial injustice, war, police brutality, social and economic inequalities, a rise in the suicide rate and the list goes on and on. We are challenged daily to pray, believe that things will get better and hold on to our faith. Many rely on God to make sense of the chaos while others are on the verge of giving up hope. Life is a journey with ups and downs, hills and valleys, success and disappointments.

On Saturday, February 13, 2016 at 5 pm CST/3 pm PST join ASWIFTT RADIO host Brenda Johnson Padgitt as she talksBrenda Johnson Padgitt38 (2) with Pastor Adrian Simmons about how to hold on to your faith when all hell breaks loose. The discussion will encourage and offer practical suggestions while coming from scripture. There will be times when life gets hard and our circumstances are magnified. The enemy has a way of making things seem more drastic than they really are. The famous acronym FEAR means False Evidence Appearing REAL is the best example that demonstrates how Satan attempts to disturb and frustrate us. The enemy wants us to believe temporary circumstances are permanent. He ultimately wants us to suffer despair and lose all hope.

1 Peter 5:8 tells us to Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour. John 10:10 reveals the enemy’s purpose and why Jesus came. “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” The daily life we live is not always easy. We will face trials and tribulations. Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. (Psalm 34:19) We must never forget that we are born with a purpose. It is up to us to find our purpose and seek God on how to fulfill it. We must live out our lives according to God’s principles which are in the BIBLE.

ASWIFTT RADIO presents “Jesus Is The Reason For The Season!”

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

ASWIFTT RADIO Host Brenda Johnson Padgitt and the ASWIFTT Family want to wish you a Merry Christmas.  As we continue to celebrate this holiday season let’s remember “Jesus Is The Reason For The Season!” It is because of HIM we can live an abundant life, our sins are forgiven and we have been set free.  John 10:10 says “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  John 20:31 also says “But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” Be blessed as you continue to serve HIM.

I also want to take a moment to wish my oldest daughter Diamond a Happy Birthday.  She was given to me on Christmas Day in 1996.  I remember it like it was yesterday.  Today she is 17 and is growing up to be a beautiful young lady.

As you continue through your day please take a moment to pray, thank God and contemplate on what HE has done for you throughout the year of 2013.  HE has kept you in your right mind, HE has made provisions for you, HE has blessed you and your family.  In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
