Rick Thomas is an author, speaker, consultant, teacher, and podcaster. He has been encouraging and training Christians since 1997. Today his organisation reaches people globally through his cyber home at RickThomas.net
I would totally encourage you to sign up to his email list to receive notifications of his new content. I personally subscribe to his site and both podcasts – Your Daily Drive and Life Over Coffee. I like to listen to the podcasts because I can do that while doing something else – like cooking or hanging laundry! However, the articles also offer extra things like infographics which you don’t get with podcasts. Whichever is your preferred method, I think this is one of the best podcasts/websites you can subscribe to because it deals with life – where we’re at. While we can get a lot of Bible knowledge from sermons (and this is great), Rick’s goal is to apply biblical content to our lives where the rubber hits the road so to speak.
I started listening to his podcasts a year ago when I was going through a really tough time physically and emotionally. I had burned out and could barely function but I started listening to Rick’s podcasts as well as doing a few other things. Rick became my ‘companion’ as I worked through stuff. Sometimes I was encouraged, sometimes convicted, sometimes motivated, but whatever it was, I always ‘felt better’ because my mind was not focusing on my troubles but on God’s Word applied to me.
Rick covers a variety of relevant topics – One of Rick’s podcasts not too long ago was on a subject that most of us can identify with if chronically ill – that of Christians (and friends in general) caring too much!
Have you ever had someone give you advice on what you should be doing in order to feel better but the advice is not as helpful as the person giving it would like to think? How do you respond to that? And, if you’re the one who cares about your friend, at what point do you cross the line of caring ‘too much’? This podcast addresses this dilemma.
You can listen to the podcast below but I do encourage you to follow through on the link to his website and to subscribe to his content. He has a lot of really helpful stuff on there and one of the goals of this site is to point you in the direction of things that are helpful. So here is one of my big recommendations.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]So what did you think?
