KCBI 30 Days Of Prayer: Day 19

"For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms." (Ephesians 6:12) As we approach a new election, we want to take this time to pray for our country and for our leaders as we not only fight this battle with the COVID-19 pandemic but also this battle of division. Today, we remember Jesus' call for unity within the church as we move forward in...


The New Paris Hilton Documentary Has A Big Lesson For Us All

The other day I watched the Paris Hilton documentary called "This is Paris." Paris Hilton's net worth is $300 million and she, of course, is an heiress to the Hilton fortune but she alone has essentially made a brand for herself; being famous for being famous. I finished it feeling really, really sad because Paris Hilton is a woman who has it all. She's got CDs out, she's written books, she's starred in TV shows, she's been in movies, and she travels between 45 and 50 weeks a year. However,...


What We Need To Do With Our Anger As Christians

I've been in radio for 22 years and I've never received the amount of email that I've been receiving over the past few months. There's a common thread to all of them. Because of the pandemic, there are a lot of people struggling with depression and fear. However, here is what I'm seeing more than anything else: Anger. As Christians, we don't know what to do with anger. We have somehow bought into this false idea that we need to stifle it, stop it, and whatever you do, do not express it. Yet,...


The God Shot: Ephesians 6:15

"and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace." (Ephesians 6:15) In this letter to the church at Ephesus, Paul is talking about all the ways God has provided for His people in the midst of their trials and temptations. This church not only faced persecution, but they were also infiltrated by false teachers who are spreading lies and bad theology. So, as Paul lists out items of God's armor for his saints, it's no surprise that he starts with truth, then...


Daily Dilemma: My Co-Workers Treat Me Like A Child

Dear Rebecca & Burns, I’m in my early 20’s and I started a job at a dental office a few months ago and I hate my co-workers. You see, most of them are twice my age and treat me like their daughter. I was even pulled to the side because they didn’t like my tone when I responded to a question. I would bring this up to my boss, but I don't want to seem whiney. Help!


Everything Will Be Okay

When the layoffs started, she was terrified that she was going to be fired. First, it was in one department, then another department, and then another department. As she watched all of her good friends lose their jobs, the day came when my sister Emily called me because she had just gotten the news that she had lost her job. She had worried about losing her job for almost a year and she lived in constant dread. In her mind, it was the worst thing that could happen. She was single, living in...


3 Ways To Balance Working From Home With Kids

Parents with kids are in the middle of the juggling act. Some have kids at school, some have kids doing virtual school from home, some have a hybrid of both. On top of it, parents still need to get work done and for some, that still looks like doing it from home. It’s certainly a big transition to make and many of us may not feel equipped. While there is no perfect or easy solution for all, here are 3 tips from Indeed.com on how to balance caring for your kids during this time meanwhile...


You May Have Lost The Battle, But There's A War To Be Fought

Right now is a tough time to be a Cowboys fan. They've stumbled out of the gate, lost their starting QB for the year due to injury, and just got embarrassed on national TV last night. Maybe you know a little something about feeling like you can't catch a break and your circumstances feel piled against you. If that's you, I'm going to give you the same advice I'd give to every player in that Cowboys' locker room. My grandpa used to have this saying, "You may have lost the battle, but now we...

This Is What Burdens Us More Than Anything Else

I find so much comfort in God's word when it seems like everything is going wrong. Recently, I was reading in the book of Isaiah and I want to read this little passage to you out of Isaiah 46. One of the big problems with the Israelites was that they were worshipping other gods that the pagan nations around them were worshipping. So much so to the point that would make these statues either out of wood or clay, cover it in metal, and that would be the god they worshiped. Here's what God says...


KCBI 30 Days Of Prayer: Day 18

"I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness." (1 Timothy 2:1-2) As we approach a new election, we want to take this time to pray for our country and for our leaders as we not only fight this battle with the COVID-19 pandemic but also this battle of division. Today, we remember Jesus' call for unity within the church as...

The Most Important Characteristic Of God

As I look at the climate of our country right now, something that strikes me is we are a people in need of compassion. We need to give it to others but we also need to give it to ourselves. I want to show you a verse in the Book of Exodus and the reason I love this verse so much is that you can scour the whole Bible and this is the place where we get God's clearest self-definition of himself. His clearest introduction of Himself is found in this passage and this happens when Moses says,...

Daily Dilemma: My Wife Has A Secret Bank Account

Dear Rebecca & Burns, I recently discovered that my wife has a secret bank account. We’ve been married for over 10 years, and have struggled financially at times, and there was a good amount in “her secret account”. I believe we’re in this together and shouldn’t have our own accounts. She disagrees and refused to give me a reason as to why she had the secret account. I feel betrayed because she was being dishonest. Should couples keep secrets? I think it's so wrong.


The God Shot: Ephesians 6:14

"Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place," (Ephesians 6:14) There is no other human who knows exactly what you'll face today, but God knows. He knows all about your cosmic enemies, your circumstantial trials, and your internal struggles, even the ones you're still unaware of. He goes before you to equip you for victory, freedom, and joy. In this verse, Paul is describing the armor of God, which is a metaphor he uses to...

Anika's winning invention included discovering a molecule that can selectively bind to the protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. I don't know what...


Scientists Say God Is Proven To Help You Sleep Better

Would you be interested in a better night's sleep? Wouldnt we all? According to the journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, a strong faith could be the key to good night sleep. Researchers found that those who believe in salvation and have a true relationship with God tend to sleep longer, fall asleep faster, and wake up feeling more rested. In fact, after the research, those on the research team said they really couldn't ignore the results. As believers, how awesome it is that as we...


Love Is Spreading Through Zoom!

Right now, we're all involved with Zoom in some capacity: work meetings, small groups at church, maybe schooling. At Florida State University, an Ancient Mythology class of 180 students was meeting for their weekly zoom call, and as the professor signs off to end the class, a student with their mic unmuted says, "I Love You!" Awkward silence. right?? Wrong! Without missing a beat, the professor responds back with an "I Love You Too!" This is so 2020 in the best way, I only wish the pizza guy...
