Letting Go to God / Forgiving Our Debtors

12/2/2021
Notes of the day, observing the turning point in which God led the charge into the night with provisions for both body and soul. The sovereignty of God often operates on and best observed from a frequency much "slower" than ours. Being available for God's blessings means being present in the moment; and being present requires us to slow ourselves down and quiet ourselves, to the point of being able to both see and hear what God really has for us. It is an exercise in the discipline of...

Navigating a Crisis of Belief

11/16/2021
In a crisis of belief, when presented with one or more paths that you really don't have a good sense of direction for and you're not sure which way to go. I encourage you to take home three simple truths; that you have everything the make the right decision. These are: the conviction of the Holy Spirit, the confirmation of the word of God, and the consolation of the purposes of God which follow.

Special: A Cup That Overfloweth

11/15/2021
I've had a lot of anger, hate, expectations, and disappointment poured into me in recent years. But I've also (in more recent days) had a lot of love, acceptance, and appreciation poured into me as well. The difference in the overflow is undeniably and indescribably profound, leaving me with a very simple question to share with you on this special episode: what are you pouring into others?

Consider Him

For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. — Hebrews 12:3 A message of strength for the Christian wearied of injustices. Resources

Special Guest: Steve Gill

11/15/2021
Joining me today on this episode is fellow podcaster and servant of the LORD, Steve Gill. Steve is a pastor of Community Harvest Church in Lincoln, Nebraska. He is also host of the "Loving the Scriptures" podcast and author of his book, "Signs of the End" now available on Amazon. Skimming through my timeline on Twitter back in September (2021), a tweet came across that caught my attention, "…Haven't had this thought in 18 years, but now it's plaguing." Take a listen as Bro. Steve shares...

The Furnace

11/15/2021
Finding myself struggling intensely with a lot of anger triggers, provoked by memories of the past, expectations of the present, opportunity loss of the future; like a relentless enemy who will not rest content until he sees you have been duly annihilated with extreme prejudice: it is embedded in what people have said about me, how people have deliberately used me; it is the unbelievable disregard and dismissal of the weight of evidence in a court of law; it is the literal injustices...

God's Master Plan

11/15/2021
From the beginning of time, God had a master plan for the human race: to make us become fellowheirs, members of the body of Christ, and partakers of the promise of the Holy Spirit in Christ by the gospel; in truth, children. However, we of our own accord—and for our own selfish reasons—have moved mountains, desperately trying to evade this impending reality. But God commendeth His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. True reconciliation with God is as...

To Answer the Question: "Why God?"

11/15/2021
An in-depth look at a commonly phrased, two-word question, "Why God?" Episode Notes Reading: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10 Just as it is with going to college, sitting through high school classes; sitting through training, etc. — we sit through this period where we would much rather be doing hands-on work and the things we want to do; even enjoying the fruits of what we get to do, well before we've submitted ourselves to the process of getting there, and we find ourselves quickly becoming...

Debilitating Doubt

11/15/2021
An intimate share of one of my greatest struggles: feeling like I don't belong, when I've already been accepted. Something you should understand about myself–as with anyone else–is that our encounters may, for the most part, remain superficial, and that for a very long time. In reality, there is often more that could be said in response to the standard greeting, "How's it going?" but unless there's a sincere interest in really knowing more, those behind-the-scenes details are usually left...

Hope in the Suffering

11/15/2021
Summary The purpose and authority for the Show is not only in the sharing of the life struggles and sufferings of everyday people like you and me, but to also comfort those in trouble, by the same comfort wherewith we ourselves are also comforted in all our tribulation, by the God of all comfort. Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark...

Blockers!

11/15/2021
Blockers are a very real problem, and for the searching soul that has been stopped by pride, it spells disaster. Pride will convince you that you are right, when you know you are wrong. Pride will continue running when the vehicle has already run out of gas, and there's no good sensible reason why it should still be running. Pride is the perfect excuse for every situation. Pride is the lazy teacher who would rather see their kids happy than see them educated. Pride is the father or mother...

A Reason to Believe

11/15/2021
Sitting in finance class in a noticeably better frame of mind emotionally, spiritually, mentally; I found myself once again dealing with self-pity and my old foe, debilitating doubt. I felt that many of the life parameters addressed in finance class weren't resonating with those I currently lived under, further leading me to doubt how effective these financial strategies were going to be for me. But as they say, "the first step to success is believing that you can" (Unknown). It's...
