Welcome to Encouragement Central!
Thank you for stopping in for a HUG –where you can hear words of encouragement throughout the month. Hugs are relational food; we can’t thrive without the loving touch of a friend, family member and on occasion a stranger. God’s promise of His Unfailing Grace is the ultimate HUG. I love sharing a taste of His grace with you each week right here.
Join me, share what you hear, and come back again.
These are live broadcasts from Linda’s Live Powerfully Now – Faith-Inspired and Family Focused Radio show – Your Weekly HUG and Not Just Talkin’ The Talk – be blessed and encouraged!
Devoting Ourselves to Prayer
Are you devoted to prayer?
How is your devotion played out each week?
Are you concerned that you are not as devoted as you ought to be?
What does the Apostle Paul tell us about making prayer a daily precursor to God-Moments?
Listen in as I share from the Book of Colossians –God’s truth to empower your week. I pray this is an encouragement to you in “praying-life,” as Jennifer Kennedy Dean would say.
Please note, there’s a 30-second commercial prior to the show.
Pride… the Unmasking! ”It’s better to bless than to impress.”
What half-truths have you spoken thinking it really didn’t matter? Pride caused one couple to embrace dishonesty… it cost them their lives. Vonda Skelton is a great storyteller. In her book, “Seeing Through the Lies” she reminds us. “The greatest hindrance to living a Christ-like-life is a prideful heart.” Sharing the story of Ananias and Sapphira exposes the tendency we have, to stretch the truth or bypass it all together for our own means.
Linda shares this mid-week washing in God’s word to encourage you to consider the impact your pride has on others. It’s an issue each of us needs to take personally.
The Power of Prayer
Do you pray? Do you feel prayer is effective? God answers our prayers before we know to ask them, “I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers.” Isaiah 65:24 Linda shares this mid-week washing in God’s word to encourage you… about prayer – your role… and His promise.

(Please be patient – this episode has a slight 30-second glitch at the beginning – thank you!!)
Do you feel HOPE working in your life? God reminds us that He is above all things – lean into Him today to experience His hope. Frustration happens but we’re not to embrace it, we are to embrace hope by persevering.
Linda shares a mid-week washing in God’s word to encourage you with action steps you can take today knowing HOPE is here.
Do you have junk cluttering up your life? Are you aware that emotional clutter depletes relationships? Today Linda will discuss the dangers of living a physically and emotionally cluttered life and how we can clear a path, to living a freed up life full of possibilities and wellbeing.
A Thankful Heart
God wants each of us to experience Him with thanksgiving on a daily basis.
“Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.” Psalm 95:2 ”Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God.” Psalm 95:6-7
Linda shares a mid-week washing in God’s word to encourage you to be thankful in all things, despite life’s circumstances.
