Poco a Poco Episodes

Don’t Fumble The Bag

The gift of Advent is God proposing himself to us. He comes not just to command us to do something and watch from a far. He comes to sing with us, dance with us, BE with us. With that said, it would be tragic if the Lord comes knocking in our door and we don’t open it — that we miss Emmanuel, God with us. Let us…

Gentle But Uncompromising

Sometimes we lose hope, wondering, does He really want to come and be with us in our sickness, addiction, our family brokenness, our difficulty, our struggles, or anxieties? Advent is a time that God speaks a definitive word into our exiles, “Yes, I do” — He comes and desires to be with us. This episode is the first part…

Step One

Jesus not only loves us — He thirsts for us. Why does He say “I thirst”? What does it mean? It’s something so hard to explain in words. I thirst is something much deeper than Jesus just saying, “I love you”. Mother Teresa tells us how much love Jesus has for each of us — beyond all that we can imagine. In her words…

Little But Infinite

Sometimes, we may feel that we are only able do the little things — that what we do is insignificant. Things may seem so small, but in reality no matter how little or insignificant something may seem, nothing is little. It’s because God makes them and because He makes them, they are great and infinite in value…

The Ecstasy Episode

Could you imagine being woken up in the middle of the night because of a great desire to be with someone? For Mother Teresa, it was her desire to be with Jesus. She had a deep, supernatural union with God that gave her the experience of divinely-inspired thirst for Him…

Our Holy Aunt

As we mentioned on our previous episode, we need to be in this place where we are able to both worship and adore Jesus and at the same time be in relationship with Him and our neighbor with compassion and warmth. This episode talks about an exceptional example of…

Worship and Warmth

In our faith we sometimes find ourselves in the extremes. We become either strict and liturgical or warm and casual but the truth is our faith should not be “either, or” but “both, and”. We need to be in this place where we are able to both worship and adore the Lord and…

We Speak Praise

We allow our hearts to agree with the truth of who God is — that’s what adoration means. And as we become more familiar with the truth who God is through adoration, we start to see more clearly who God is to us and what is given to us by Him. Everything that we have…

Prayer Battle Tactics

There’s great wisdom to having some structure or intentionality to our prayer life because not having a plan for it can lead to the death of it. The truth is, killing your prayer or spiritual life is not only limited to doing violence to it, but also not nourishing it. There might be…

Stay Where the Grace Is

Life is difficult — our life is a valley of tears. And the ability to remain in faith, hope, and love with God as Father is impossible if we do it ourselves. If we want to be able to experience God’s closeness and his presence and to cry out “Abba, Father” in the midst of our …
