Don't Love The World.

My Friend,

Don't love the world or the things of the world and do not conform to this world. 

Instead, you and I need to conform to the things of The Lord as outlined in His Word. Not in some legalistic way, rather a faithful, faith filled, and Spirit led way.

Please watch this bring message / quote:


Let me encourage you guard your heart, mind, soul, and eyes from the things that seek to distract you from and lure you away from everything that matters most...specifically the things of The Lord! 

Take time to read, study, and take to heart 1 John 2:15-16 and Romans 12:2 for starters. 

You're in my prayers! 

Your brother and servant in Christ,

Randolph Koch

No One Else.

As I awoke this morning, thoughts of many disappointments and discouragements started to fill my head. But God, being rich in mercy helped me turn once again to His goodness and His Word. He reminded me to turn to Him and His truth, THE Truth!

We all have our moments of weariness, but, then His truth comes through like a fresh wind and clears the fog that fills our minds sometimes, the fog that the enemy and our own wrong thinking that we allow to take hold.

As I sought Him this morning, He also brought this song to my heart and mind and I lifted up to Him:

Fernando Ortega’s “No One Else” that you can listen to here: https://open.spotify.com/track/4iSAdKa3Rm4Ha5FC7KMcdK?si=76fe9928857d4591

Ultimately, there is no one else besides Him that we should turn to and reply on that will always be there for us.

This doesn’t mean we don’t or shouldn’t seek wise counsel and encouragement from others, rather, it means, He’s the only one that is our constant and perfect source of counsel, refuge, strength, and more! He is the only one that will never leave or forsake us.

He helps us grow in the wisdom and knowledge of Him and provides the tools we need to live for Him, for His Kingdom and Glory, as we wrestle with the ups and downs of life.
So, in our times when the "fog" roles in, we need to turn once again to Him, turn to Him right away, as there is no one else besides Him Who will see us through any storm or good time in life.

A Prayer To The Lord:

Lord, I thank you that there is no one else besides you. You are my rock and fortress. You are my deliverer and strength. You are my fog lifter and the lifter of my head. You are my provider. You are the light unto my path and lamp unto my feet and I turn to you. Please help me by Your Holy Spirit turn to you as a first response instead of an afterthought, as I know the truth of Your Word no matter what the enemy or my own thinking tries to convince me of…I need to turn to you. Thank you for Who You are. Thank you for Your Word. Thank You for your love and care. Thank you for your provision and protection. Thank you for your new mercies today and every morning. Thank you for your Holy Spirit’s guidance and wisdom in my life! May You receive all the glory due your name! In Jesus’ mighty name I pray, Amen.

Friend, as you wake up in the morning, may you remember and proclaim that there is no one else but you Lord. And, as you lie down to rest at night, may you remember and proclaim that there is no one else but you Lord.

In the valleys and mountain tops of life, turn to Him.

He is your all in all. May you be lifted up today by this remembrance.

You’re in my prayers and please keep me in yours.

In Christ Alone,

Your Brother and Servant in Christ,

Randolph Koch

Pray At All Times!

My Friend,

No matter what you face each day, let me encourage you to make prayer a priority. Make it your first response and not an afterthought.

Check out this brief video with a poignant quote:

Take time to read, study, and take to heart 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Philippians 4:6, and Ephesians 6:18 for starters. Approaching God in prayer is a blessing, gift, and privilege so don't take it for granted and again, make prayer for yourself and others a priority. You are in my prayers. Please pray for me as well.

An Encouragement For Discouraged Dads

Dear Men, especially Dads,

On Father's Day I had the honor of reading a post that was forwarded to me and as an imperfect father of 5 (all who are young adults now), I found it super comforting, special, and like a healing balm to the soul, mind, and spirit of this dad.  

I asked the author, Cendrine Hosoda for permission to share it with you and she graciously agreed as she would like this to reach other dads. Thank you Cendrine!

Please read this guest post and I pray you are as encouraged as I am by what she shared. Always remember that there is still time to change, grow, and heal as a man, father, and grandpa. Don't give up!

God is with you and will help you in your journey. 

Your Brother and Servant In Christ,
Randolph Koch


An Encouragement For Discouraged Dads
By Cendrine Hosoda

To all the discouraged dads out there on Father's Day,

I want you to know that I think about you today. Maybe your kids don't acknowledge this day, or perhaps you feel like you've messed up too badly. It's possible that you're overwhelmed with confusion, not even knowing where to start. I want to apologize for the lack of modeling and guidance you received growing up, and for the deficiencies you're still trying to navigate in your own heart.

I understand the weight of shame and the high pressure placed on men to represent God the Father to their children. It's a daunting standard that can paralyze you. I know firsthand the battle and the pain that comes with not turning out the way you wanted to for your kids. It hurts when your best intentions don't translate and your efforts go unnoticed because you were unable to connect or understand your child's needs.

I'm sorry for all the times you weren't seen and met in your own needs. It's no wonder that hopelessness and the desire to give up may seem like the only option. But today, I want to be a voice of grace and hope for you. You matter. Your pain matters. What you didn't learn matters. What you wish you had matters. The fact that you resemble your father more than you wanted to matters. Your hurt matters. Your sense of failure matters.

It matters that you tried. It matters if you didn't try and now you regret it. There is grace for every scenario. You can't control the outcome, but you can start pursuing steps toward wellness now. It is never too late for you to begin this journey. The best thing you can do for your kids, even if they won't speak to you or if you doubt they'll ever see your changes, is to pursue change for yourself. You are worth the investment, and it will make a difference.

I won't sugarcoat it. It will be one of the hardest things you'll ever do, but I implore you, on this Father's Day when you feel the pain of failure, disappointment, and grief, make a promise to yourself. Take one step toward working on yourself and allowing God and His servants to help you uncover the person your heart may have stopped dreaming you could be.

It won't be easy, and it will take time. But I promise you, the pain of growth will be worth every bit of it. Your time is not over. The bravest and greatest thing you can do is say, "I'm going to do this. I'm going to work on myself. I'm going to let God have the final say, not people or myself."

May you feel renewed hope that you are not beyond help and hope. Know that I am praying for you as you embark on this journey. I believe in you. You can do this. It will make a difference.

Happy Father's Day

2023 February Through July Memory Verses!

Hello and thank you for visiting the A Shepherd's Heart Website!

How are you doing? I hope you are well!

I've been giving thought to the typical monthly memory verse(s) that I share and I thought it would be good to do something slightly different in 2023.

Instead of a different theme and verse or verses each month, I thought it would be good to focus the next six months on one theme which is sharing your faith via memorizing the verses around The Romans Road. 

What's The Romans Road? Some of you may be familiar with it already but just in case you aren't, it's a simple tool that can help you explain The Gospel using verses from the book of Romans which is comprised of Six Pillars of Truth drawing from a group of six verses from The Book of Romans.

To get us started, here are the February to July memory verses: (We'll memorize something else August - December)

Please also see the following link for a pdf file with the above memory verse if you need a larger format:

PDF: https://mcusercontent.com/2397c7127b3505c0de92b4410/files/d825faf3-e1a3-4657-8c18-8e51818a9935/Romans_Road.pdf

Image Only:  https://mcusercontent.com/2397c7127b3505c0de92b4410/images/a0c06cba-6b75-af9c-b70f-60c758bc47c0.png

I'll be following up in the days to come with additional information and at the end, I'll send you a one page Romans Road handout that you can fold and tuck away in your Bible as a ready resource when God gives you an opportunity to share faith.

As always, I recommend you memorize scripture using a good word for word translation such as the ESV or another translation. 

Let me know how I can be praying for you.

Allow God To Work All Things Together For Good.

My Friend,

I don’t know anyone who really enjoys going through trials or hard times. We know that life is full of twists and turns, ups and downs, heart ache as well as joy. And things often don't go according to our plans, desires, or even dreams. It also may be a struggle sometimes to not understand why we go or are going through things sometimes, especially in the midst of the trial.

 

Maybe for you it's a job loss, a health crisis, an economic loss, a broken relationship or one in conflict, or something else? No matter what, whether it's the good times or times of uncertainty and trial, we must remember that His ways are higher than our ways.

 

We need to trust and live in faith resting in the truth that God only has good in store for us even through the times of growth when it certainly doesn't feel "good". Even when things aren’t going how we planned or expected them to go we need to trust Him and have faith in His purpose, will, and plan knowing His plans are better than our own every single time!

Furthermore, even though we want to know the whys or reasons for our trials, we don't have to know or understand all the reasons behind what we're going through, but, we know God does and we can trust that everything we face again, is for our good and growth.

 

Our trials may never be “easy”, but, as we mature in faith, we may handle them better as we begin to recognize that these times are opportunities for good for ourselves and others. 


As we walk through these seasons we will grow and whether we realize it or not, others will also benefit as we go through the trials, (and come out on the other side) as they will be watching us and may learn from what God is doing in and through us which will in turn help them as they face their seasons of trials. 

 

Take time to read, study, and take to heart Romans 8:28, Proverbs 3:5-8, and Isaiah 55:8-9 for starters.

 

In closing, let me encourage you to not get ahead of God by trying to force or try to somehow speed through a season He has for you, instead, allow God to work all things together for good…for your good and for His Glory.


Your Brother and Servant in Christ,
Randolph Koch

Thank You God For Another Year!


Hello Friend,
Just a few days ago (The 9th) I was blessed to celebrate Birthday # 52 and I want to simply thank God for the gift of another year to serve Him and His people as I turn another year older and hopefully wiser. :-)
_
Not that I'm worthy but I pray this next year will be a blessing and filled with opportunities to serve and bring Him glory. 

Opportunities to serve His people helping meet spiritual and physical needs as much as possible. Opportunities to live life on purpose together as we strive to seek, serve, and love Him with all that is within us! 
_
I pray this year will be a year of further growth for me and that I'd become more deeply rooted in Him. 
_
I pray that God would somehow use me to help others grow in their relationship with Him and that they'd become more deeply rooted in Christ as well!
_
I pray that He would expand His kingdom and glory through me as I seek to give glory to Him and point people to Him. 
_
I'm truly a nobody who is thankful and blessed to know The Somebody, Jesus Christ. 
_
Many Blessings friend! Thank you for the honor of serving you!

Your brother and servant in Christ, 

Randolph Koch

Meeting each day with faith, worship, and prayer.

My Friend, 

Life is hard sometimes and we're reminded in 2 Timothy 3:1-7 that difficult times will come. 

We can be brought to places of deep grief, sorrow, and pain. 

As we grow in Christ, we know we can trust Him as we go through each season. 

We can choose to meet our highest and lowest points of life in worship unto The Lord and faith in Him. 

He is The One Who sustains us and He is the healer of our hearts, minds, and souls. 

Read, study, and take to heart 1 Peter 5:7 Psalm 34:1‭-‬4, Romans 8:18, Romans 5:3–4, James 1:12, John 16:33, Isaiah 43:2, Psalm 23:4. 

Then may you consider turning to Him in faith, worship, and prayer no matter what you face each day because you know He is with you! 

You're in my prayers.

Your brother and servant in Christ, 

Randolph Koch

April 2022 Memory Verses.

My Friend,

For our April scripture memorization, I've suggested 3 verses.

Here are the memory verses: Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 20:28, Romans 6:23.
As always, I've suggested the ESV version which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

You'll notice that following the verses is a list of some basic themes/topics.

I've included those suggestions as I learned many years ago that having at least one theme or topic in mind when you memorize scripture helps you store them in memory and as you have conversations with others in the future, I can guarantee that as those themes/topics come up, the scripture you've memorized will also come to mind and you may share encouragement from God's Word or re-encourage yourself!

May you continue to abide in God's Word through reading, studying, memorization and living it out as vital keys to our growth.

Have fun with scripture Memorization! Don't stress about it! And, as always, be in The Word and stay in The Word!

You're in my prayers and please reach out if you need any tips.
Your Brother and Servant in Christ,
Randolph Koch

No Past Is Too Dark For The Love And Forgiveness Of Christ.

My Friend,

Everyone has a past and if we're honest, everyone has regrets too. The truth is that we've all missed the mark and fallen short of the glory of God. (Read Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23)

Hear me when I share that nothing you've experienced, no matter what sins you've committed, no matter what, there's nothing that can keep you from the love and the forgiveness of Christ! (Read Romans 8:38-39)

Yes, I know the schemes of the evil one (and possibly others) whose aim is to try and convince you that Jesus' sacrifice isn't enough. That His grace and love isn't enough. That He is not enough, but...satan is a liar!
No matter how dark you think your past and present is - allow Jesus to shine His light upon the darkness by receiving His free gifted of salvation.
Allow your history become HIStory which will then be about His redemption of you, your new life in Him, and then your eternity with Him!
Thanks be to God that He gave His Son Jesus to die in your place as the perfect and complete sacrifice! He is the only way! (Read John 14:6)
Don't allow your past hinder you anymore and instead repent of and confess your sins, believe in faith Jesus died for you and rose again in victory over death and sin, and receive in faith Jesus as your Savior through His free gift of salvation. (Read: Acts 16:31, Romans 10:9-10, 13, 1 John 2:2, John 10:15, and Ephesians 2:8-9)
Put your faith fully in Him and leave your past, present, and future with Him.

You're in my prayers.

Your brother and servant in Christ,
Randolph Koch
