Long Term Care

Long Term Care may easily be one of our largest financial expenditures in our lifetime. A person has a 68% chance of needing care to assist them with one or more activities of daily living. Long Term Care may easily be one of our largest financial expenditures in our lifetime. A person has a 68% chance of needing care to assist them with one or more activities of daily living. With a national average of $8,300 a month for full-time custodial care, lack of planning for this event can be financially devastating. There are a number of options available to plan for this event. A combination of Long-Term Care insurance, Medicaid friendly trusts, life insurance with accelerated benefit riders, and proper ownership of assets are a some of options available to someone as they plan for long-term care needs.

Joy in Difficult Times

A Prayer

O holy St. Philip Neri, patron saint of joy,
you who trusted scripture’s promise that the Lord is always at hand 
and that we need not have anxiety about anything,
in your compassion heal our worries and sorrows
and lift the burdens from our hearts.
We come to you as one whose heart swells
with abundant love for God and all creation.
Hear us, we pray, especially in this need (make your request here).

Keep us safe through your loving intercession and may the joy of the Holy Spirit which filled your heart, St. Philip, transform our lives and bring us peace. Amen

Joy is not happiness

Joy is something deeper and more lasting. Even when an activity is over when you feel contentment or consolation, that is joy, as St. Ignatius points out.  Focusing on the long term goal of heaven and not on the little things that annoy us can help us have joy. Yes, there are difficulties in life, but if we allow ourselves to focus only on those, we will sink into the muck of our emotions.

Where to look

Look to the cross. It is an example of focusing on the joy that is to come. But remember because of Christ’s death and resurrection we can have that joy now, in this life. I’m certain our joy in heaven will be far greater than any we experience here on earth, but we can still have joy. That is the gift we have from God.

When you are feeling less than full of joy, pray the prayer of St. Philip Neri and ask him to intercede for you.

Healthcare Options

Healthcare is a major topic for all of us, but especially for those that are self-employed.Healthcare is a major topic for all of us, but especially for those that are self-employed. Those people who are need of their own health plans are dealing with issues in relation to premium cost, deductibles, exclusions, and doctor acceptance of their plan. Healthcare.gov  is an option for people to purchase “Obamacare” in their individual states. The deadline for signing up for Jan 1, 2021 plans is November 1, 2020 through December 15, 2020. Another option that can be considered and compared to the Healthcare.gov plans are Christian cost-share plans. There are several plans available, and may be a viable option for you and your family. They are not traditional health insurance, but by participating in a Christian cost-share plan, you will satisfy the government mandate to have health insurance.

Cause It’s 1-2-3 Strikes You’re Safe

Life is a continual renewal of security where your heavenly umpire shouts, “Cause it’s 1, 2, 3 strikes… You’re Safe!”

Episode 1:  Cause it’s 1-2-3 strikes…”You’re Safe”

Are you a woman who longs to feel protected and safe?  Do you constantly seek that sense of safety even without a pandemic  at your reach? In this episode we will discover how our Heavenly Father IS our shining knight on the horse and we will explore my top 10 ways to bring back security and protection in your life.

#1 Ask the Lord to protect you.  Psalm 91 says, “I will rescue those who love me.  I will protect those who trust in my name.  When they call on me, I will answer, I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue them and honor them.  I will satisfy them with a long life.” Spend the time with him and just ask.

#2 Take care of yourself.

Sleep, eat healthy food, exercise, and take time to relax.  Leaving any of those out will leave you feeling more vulnerable to life’s circumstances. Light a candle, get a good book, and relax in a quiet bath.  It will lower your stress hormones and detox your body at the same time.

#3 Clean out a closet.

Clean out your inbox, apps you don’t use, and clutter around the house.  Clean out drawers, “To Do lists” hanging around that you haven’t updated, and basically anything you can get your hands on.  You would not BELIEVE how freeing this will feel.

#4 Listen to your inner voice

If something in your gut tells you to stay away or be cautious…LISTEN.  Make yourself stop, stand still, and listen.  You will be surprised how clear your answer and your voice becomes.

#5 Surround yourself with people who make you feel safe

If that means you’re down to two people in your life right now…so be it!  Think quality…not quantity.

#6 Turn the light on!

Turn YOUR light on!  Be kind… and genuinely kind.  Plan an INTENTIONAL random act of kindness. Strive to leave a mark on your life…not a stain.

#7 Change your view

Perspective is everything and it’s totally free!  Instead of paying bills at the counter, take a laptop outside on the porch.  Instead of reading your child a book in bed, make a tent out of old sheets and read with a flashlight.  Perspective is a powerful tool!

#8 Find some sticky notes!

Grab some sticky notes and jot down some promises in the Bible, an uplifting cliché, or a note from others that touched your heart. Speak them over your life.  What your mouth says your heart believes and what your heart believes your life reflects. 

#9 Log it!

Keep a journal of what makes you feel protected. Begin noticing how you feel when you’re around certain people, or at certain places. Learn to tune your mind into the people/places that do the opposite and avoid them.

#10  Be proactive!

Try out these strategies and learn what helps YOU and apply those strategies BEFORE insecurity creeps up, instead of trying to recover afterwards.

As for children, if you want them to care about what you know they HAVE to know that you care!

Top 10 Ways to Make Your Child Feel Safe

#1 Spent time with them!  Remember, your time=their security.  You don’t have to spend a ton of money.  Kids just want your time.

#2 Listen to them! 

This doesn’t mean half listen with a phone in your hand.  Make eye contact and really listen to what they are saying.

#3 Be Consistent!

Life happens.  You can’t always guarantee consistency.  Try and maintain their routines as best you can.

#4 Show them affection! Even though we as moms want to be #1 in our child’s life, please don’t forget about Dad.  Dads play an EXTREME roll in a child’s life.

#5 Let loose and just have fun!

Laugh, be silly, or do something totally unexpected.  Your child needs to see that you can have fun and let loose showing them what a work/life balance should look like.

#6 Praise them!

Be specific.  Try and limit the “Great jobs!” and “Way to go” and instead, let them know WHY they did a great job. They need to know you are proud of them for the EFFORT they gave, the DETERMINATION they exuded, or the Dignity they gave themselves and others when they LOST the game or race.

#7 Honor them for who they are. 

If you want your child to open up and confide in you then they HAVE to believe that you accept them for who they truly are.  You be you and allow them to be them. Expose them to an array of hobbies and experiences and allow them choice and voice to decide what THEY want to pursue.

#8 Show them love with no strings attached!

Love them for being your child and your child only. Do NOT associate their success with your love. God loves us with unconditional love and our children need to feel that same kind of love from us!

#9 Show mercy like the Lord showed you!

Discipline creates security in a child and teaches them right from wrong.  Showing your child mercy also teaches them how to be merciful to others.

#10 Pray over them! 

Children learn by seeing…by example.  Put your arm around them and pray the Lord’s favor and protection over their lives.  They may not still want their baby blanket, but they want what their baby blanket once supplied…safety, reassurance, protection.

Remember…Life is NOT a ballgame of outs where every swing is recorded.  Rather, it’s a continual renewal of security where your heavenly umpire shouts, “Cause it’s 1, 2, 3 strikes… You’re Safe!”

Grace of Renewal Workshop

Grace of Renewal Workshop This podcast will present the grace of renewal workshop. The suggested format that will relate to the Church’s Grace of Renewal. Since it is being proposed that for a full life of transformation, it is necessary to go beyond what we have recently traditionally known as the “Baptism in the Holy Spirit”. #podcast #christianpodcast #christian #christianity #charasmaticrenewal The Grace of Renewal Workshop – Episode 31

This podcast will present the grace of renewal workshop. The suggested format that will relate to the Church’s Grace of Renewal. Since it is being proposed that for a full life of transformation, it is necessary to go beyond what we have recently traditionally known as the “Baptism in the Holy Spirit”.

This inspiring book by Father David Tickerhoof, Third Order Regular (TOR), on the role of Merciful Penitents in the Renewal and Reform of the Church

Father David’s book is available! “Evangelizing Catholic Culture,” get your copy today.

Which is a wonderful program for receiving a new actualizing spiritual power of the Holy Spirit in one’s personal Christian life? This new format which is being proposed consists in the actualizing power of the Holy Spirit, the practice of the gifts or charisms of the Holy Spirit,  experiencing the graces of the Paschal Mystery (the Cross, Death, Resurrection of the Lord Jesus), and the spiritual anointing of the Holy Spirit for carrying out the mission of building the Kingdom of God here on earth.

The Grace of Renewal Workshop

Considering a practical pastoral perspective, there are several ways to structure the format of this program. I will suggest two or three possibilities.  For those who live a busy and involved life this approach may be helpful. 1) Participate in a day of recollection from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm on a Saturday, which would include three or four presentations with discussion. Then have two successive week-nights with three talks and a time for praying as a group and individually for each person for the Church’ Grace of Renewal. 2) The second possibility would be to have two talks on a Friday night, three on the following Saturday, and hold on the following weekday night one session for preparing individuals, praying with the group, and individually for the Church’s Grace of Renewal. 3) Have the whole program recorded on CD or video which groups or individuals could borrow and listen to at home individually or as a group, and then gather for a night of prayer for healing and preparation to be prayed with for the Church’s Grace of Renewal. For sure there are other ways for structuring the format of this program. Please do not hesitate to suggest them to us.

I would like to give you some idea about what this renewal program would consider. We would need to first look at the specific nature of the Church’s Grace of Renewal. How does this differ or build on other spiritual renewal efforts? This presentation would try to bring together other renewal programs. We would look specifically at Charismatic Renewal. We would – consider the graces flowing from Vatican Council II; specifically, why the Paschal Mystery is so important. We would need to consider the advantage of living a life of prayer, as the heart of love. The four types of conversion, forgiveness, and the healing of the whole person, the joy of sharing one’s life in some form of community (small merciful penitent fellowship groups). Doing the mercy mission of the Church as compassionate servants of mercy and missionary disciples gives us the desire to practice the virtues of sacrifice, repentance, atonement, and power centered intercession. There would be other good things as well.  In addition to Catholics, Christians from other Christian backgrounds would be welcome.

When individuals sign up for a workshop, we would give a more detailed explanation of what specific things would be done, and the title and nature of each presentation would be geared toward spiritual renewal and personal transformation. The following is a rough outline of several formats and topics. I am going to present the eight or nine topics that we would consider in the workshop.

  • Living a life of prayer: Discovering the way of love.
  • The spiritual gifts of the Spirit or charisms: The practical application of the Pentecostal Experience.
  • The four types of conversion and the healing of the whole person (Ongoing conversion).
  • The Charism of Crucified Mercy: The source and power of being a servant of Mercy.
  • The role of the Sacraments as the foundation for transformation: a vision for the practice of a Catholic way of life.
  • Doing the mission of the Gospel by building the Kingdom of God on earth: Evangelization and the proclamation of the Gospel.
  • The challenge of servanthood by practicing the ministry of atonement and power-focused prayer and intercession.
  • Receiving the Church’s Grace of Renewal by experiencing the gift of being baptized in the Spirit of the Paschal Mystery.
  • The importance of communal prayer and praise and being a part of a small group of faith sharing; participation in a merciful penitent fellowship group (optional).

Suggested Format Model

Making a Saturday day of recollection with four talks and discussion, followed by an evening talk the following week, and a second follow up evening talk the next week. At the first one-two, presentations would be given and at the second one preparation for and praying for individuals to be baptized in the Spirit of the Paschal Mystery. All presentations, with the exception of the prayer time, would be 30 minutes or less.

Topics for a day of recollection model

-The day of recollection:

1) Life of Prayer

2) On-going conversion and healing

3) Practical use of the spiritual gifts or charisms

4) Role of the Sacraments in spiritual transformation

-First, follow up night session the week after the day of recollection

5) The invitation to be a servant of Mercy and an explanation of power focused prayer.

6) Doing the mission of the Church: Evangelization; living and proclaiming the Gospel.

-The second follow up evening session; the second week after the day of recollection.

7)The importance of fraternal relationships.

8) Preparation for being “prayed with” for the renewal in the Spirit of the PM.

May We Pray!

Dear Lord, we deeply rejoice at all the beautiful graces you are giving to individuals to bring about spiritual renewal and personal transformation. We know that your gifts come from your deep love for us. May the programs we offer bring great peace, wisdom, and Joy to the hearts of all participants. Pour out these graces from the heart of Mary our spiritual Mother. Amen.

Pouting- A 3 Minute Meditation

Today’s topic is “Pouting”. Feelings can get the best of us. We may think of them as childish at times, and they may well be. What do we do with them?Today’s topic is “Pouting”. Feelings can get the best of us. We may think of them as childish at times, and they may well be. What do we do with them? Even after our best efforts to be strong and mature about it, sometimes we have to “pout” them out.

Luke 2:19 tells us “And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.”  Some Bible versions say, “She pondered.” The original Greek word for ponder is sumballo which means to “throw together.” Think of these 3-minute meditations as a throwing together of thoughts, ideas, and reflections related to a particular topic.  They are not meant to be teachings, but rather invitations and perhaps helps to reflecting more deeply in your own heart.

Knowing God’s Will

Against All Odds Prayer Works

Many times children rebel against their parents, sometimes it is overtly but many times and the most insidious is when it is not as evident. They give lip service with a yes, but instead, their actions say no. Are we similar to the children who say yes to God but don’t follow through with the actions required for a solid relationship with the Creator-God?

God the Father has always fascinated me. He walked in the garden with Adam and Eve. He spoke truth and love and kindness and they, who had witnessed perfection in their world and with their maker turned their backs on Him. how does that happen? Sure, we all know the story of the temptation but how does one get tempted? How do we allow ourselves to fall into that path where temptation comes along and we do not recognize it for what it really is, sin.

Recently our pastor and I spoke about this issue and he distilled it down to a simple fact, that while Adam and Eve walked with God their relationship was lacking because if it was strong and solid they would not be in a place where temptation would work, and they would have used the words of Jesus, later when Peter tried to spare him his cross, “Get behind me Satan.”

Paul says in 1 Corinthians 12: 1-12 and especially in verses 9-10 that Jesus gave us a grace that is sufficient and when we realize his power is made perfect in our weakness we can reveal our true selves to him and that is that we are nothing alone.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”

For when I am weak then I am strong … this is a contradiction in our minds but it means we are letting go and letting God. We are standing beside the cross with Him, but he is doing all of the heavy lifting. When we are down, depressed, angry, frustrated, and just under a burden that we can not lift, we must cooperate with our Lord and Savior.

Let me spell it out to you.

  1. Do we believe? Do we have the faith that withstands the daily temptations in our lives?
  2. Are we distracted by all of the things that bombard our lives?
  3. Do we have the peace that surpasses all understanding or are we afraid?
  4. Do we have the moral fortitude and the will to turn off the things that rob us of our peace?
  5. Do we go to God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit and ask for that infilling of the fire of Pentecost to come into our lives and strengthen the bond and relationship with our Maker our Creator, Our Savior, and His Spirit?

Are we unruly children who work against God’s grace instead of with and in cooperation with God’s grace? And, that is the issue, many times we continue to think we are with God when indeed we are for ourselves and our own ideas.  I’ve realized that the only way to stay grounded is to spend time with God, going to daily Mass helps me but it is just the beginning. When I leave the doors of the church am I still in prayer, and I still looking and seeking Him in a relationship all day long? I pray this for all of us, and that the infilling of the Spirit of God remains in you and you in Him.

Let’s Pray.

Dear Heavenly Father, I yearn for a deeper relationship with you. I ask you Lord for the grace to see things as you see them and to open my eyes to the truth of your love for me. Please Lord give me an infilling of Your spirit to renew and sanctify me so that I can repent from my sins and look to you for salvation. I pray for the following intentions if it is within your Divine Will… and I pray this in Jesus’ precious Name. Amen.

Fiduciary Explained

The term fiduciary is a buzz word in the financial planning arena. The term is also applicable to our stewardship of God’s assets.The term fiduciary is a buzz word in the financial planning arena. The term is also applicable to our stewardship of God’s assets. Review the definition of fiduciary and envision how this applies to your personal financial stewardship. If God were looking to hire an advisor, what would your resume look like based on your past and current stewardship responsibilities?

“A fiduciary is a person who holds a legal or ethical relationship of trust with one or more other parties (person or group of persons). Typically, a fiduciary prudently takes care of money or other assets for another person. One party, for example, a corporate trust company or the trust department of a bank, acts in a fiduciary capacity to another party, who, for example, has entrusted funds to the fiduciary for safekeeping or investment. Likewise, financial advisers, financial planners, and asset managers, including managers of pension plans, endowments, and other tax-exempt assets, are considered fiduciaries under applicable statutes and laws. In a fiduciary relationship, one person, in a position of vulnerability, justifiably vests confidence, good faith, reliance, and trust in another whose aid, advice, or protection is sought in some matter. In such a relation good conscience requires the fiduciary to act at all times for the sole benefit and interest of the one who trusts.”

St. Teresa of Avila, Doctor of the Church

Facts about Teresa of Avila

  • born in Avila, Spain on March 28, 1515
  • entered the Carmelites on 1535
  • began reforming the order and founded her first convent, St. Joesph, in 1562
  • in 1575 she was told to stop and made to retire to Costile due to a dispute between the two different Carmelite groups
  • in 1579 King Philip II of Spain found a solution to the dispute, Pope Gregory XIII confirmed it in 1580
  • for two years Teresa traveled and continued working on reforming the Carmelites
  • she died in 1582
  • she was canonized in 1622
  • made a Doctor of the Chruch in 1970by Pope Paul VI
  • she is the patron saint of headaches
  • her feast day is Oct 15

What was she reforming?

Teresa wanted her order, the Carmelites, to go back to convents existing on public offerings and poverty rather than relying on personal endowments of the wealthy. This caused a conflict between the two Carmelite groups, the Primitive and Mitigated. The Primitive was what Teresa was espousing. However, in the conflict, she was told to retire and stop working. Eventually, she was able to return to her life’s work with help from the King and Pope Gregory XIII.

Her prayer that will serve us well at this time

Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.

St. Teresa of Avila

 

When you feel troubled, pray the prayer above and remember that you have God.

Many websites created by retirement consultants have photos of retirees on the golf course, on a sailboat, or relaxing on the beach. I have yet to see any retirement marketing that shows anyone serving the Kingdom as they transition to a different season in their life. Retirement isn’t biblical. It is mentioned one time regarding the church of Corinth and not one of us are priests from the church of Corinth. As a believer, what should our focus be as we prepare for that period in our lives. The answer is to do the only thing that brings contentment, and that is serving the Kingdom.  That change of focus from worldview to Kingdom service directly contradicts what we are told will bring us happiness from worldview marketing.  The God honoring plan should involve being an obedient steward, avoiding investments that violate our faith as we save, to avoid the use of debt, and finally to be financially stable and free from the worries associated with income issues. To serve the Kingdom without worry! Whether it be volunteering at a foodbank, orphanage, ministry, church, or mission. You can have a very rewarding and happy “retirement” serving our Lord.  You must simply refocus on what you are called to do.

Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

 

Special Replay: Promises To Abraham

Promises To Abraham | When we read Genesis we learn, soon after the fall that all is not lost. We have hope in the promises to Abraham, from God. All is not lost and we know that through Abraham came the lineage to David and through David the lineage to Joseph and in essence to Jesus. | #podcast #homeschoolpodcastSpecial Replay: Promises To Abraham

When we read Genesis we learn, soon after the fall that all is not lost. We have hope in the promises to Abraham, from God. All is not lost and we know that through Abraham came the lineage to David and through David the lineage to Joseph and in essence to Jesus.

We learn so many things, yet one fact remains, Abraham (Abram) doubted. It resonates with me and it should resonate with all of us that we as a fallen people can not possibly understand the mind of God. God entrusts man to carry on His will and man in turns often fails. Even those who are considered by scripture to be righteous.

Promises to Abraham:

  1. Fear not (echoes what the angel Gabriel told Mary – “Fear not…”)
  2. The Word of God came to Abram
  3. A servant would not be his heir but his own flesh and blood.
  4. “Look up at the sky and count the stars—if indeed you can count them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” (Genesis 15:5)
  5. Genesis 15:18 “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates.”
  6. God’s promise and blessings were to be upon Isaac who would be blessed with a huge lineage as well. (Isaac’s name would be changed to Israel and the Twelve Tribes of Israel was his heritage.)

God’s Promises To Abraham

God’s promises to Abraham still come even though Abram did not wait! While it is difficult for us to understand this since our ways are so different now, it was acceptable back then to take on other “wives.” Sarai his wife told him to sleep with her slave, Hagar and Abram agreed.
God protected Hagar because she carried the son of Abraham. The angel appeared to her in the desert and told her she would name her son Ishmael.

This is one of the hardest things for me to read, that Abram who heard directly from God did not wait upon the Lord. Friends, how often do we do this? Not wait even though we know we should? This is something to meditate upon and journal. The entire section of the Bible that deals with Abraham and his life is filled with mishap, sometimes lies and always forgiveness from God.

The promises to Abraham include Abraham’s request, God agreed to bless Ishmael He would be the father of twelve rulers and he agreed to make him into a great nation.
But God’s covenant was for Abraham and the blessings would ultimately fall upon Isaac (Israel).

We learn about God’s ways as He “cleans” house by destroying Sodom and Gomorrah.

God’s judgment is always rooted in truth and righteousness.

The key in these scriptures for me is to wait upon the Lord. Remembering that His time is not our time.

Making A Change

The world says there is no need for change, but scripture gives us a path to contentment we cannot find elsewhere.Change is often necessary regarding our financial stewardship. Sometimes change happens voluntarily and sometimes involuntarily. We are destined to make the same mistakes and stay in a rut of poor stewardship if we are not willing to make a change. Change may require us to stop using debt, may require us to live with less,  may require us to be more aggressive with the amount of money we save. The world says there is no need for change, but scripture gives us a path to contentment we cannot find elsewhere.

Relevant Fiction for Body & Soul

Do you like to read?

Reading is my favorite way to relax! I’ve read a few of Carolyn Astfalk’s books and thought it would be nice to talk about how she got started writing fiction.

How did she get started?

A few years ago when she had only 2 children and a husband who traveled frequently for business, she took part in a popular writing challenge, write a 50,000-word novel in November. So she did! Currently, she has 4 novels, Stay with Me, Rightfully Ours, Ornamental Graces and All in Good Time. All can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and independent Catholic bookstores.

What I like about her writing

It is real! The characters face real-world contemporary problems and solve them by relying on faith to do so. Each book shows us how mercy works, why we need the sacraments and how grace and forgiveness are ours for the asking. These are novels you can read knowing faith is not an aside but applied in a practical way in the character’s lives. I haven’t read All in Good Time yet,  but plan on it. All the books are geared to adults, mainly women though men read them too. Rightfully Ours is a coming of age novel that is appropriate for older teens as well.

Top 10 of 2020

Episode 55–Top 10 Podcasts of 2020

The Working Woman Radio Show has officially turned one year old, and we are celebrating by bringing you the top 10 podcasts of 2020.

Over the past year, I have had such a blast interviewing guests, and I am so grateful to each of them for taking time out of their busy schedules to share their wisdom about the work they do. 

I am also super grateful to the many listeners who tune in each week, and listen to the program.  Without you, I would not have a show, so thank you, thank you, thank you!

As a way to celebrate the accomplishments of this past year, I thought that I would do a special episode featuring short clips of the top 10 most listened to shows of the past year. 

I picked these 10 specific episodes based on the number of downloads that the network said they received.

I arranged the clips of each episode in descending order, meaning that I will start with number 10 and work my way back to the number one most listened to episode of The Working Woman Radio Show for the past year.

So here we go!

Faith Overcomes Your Problems

David's problem was not bigger than his faith!We are living in a world that has been turned upside down. Many people have lost their jobs, lost income, and have been restricted because of the pandemic. We have been limited to online worship instead of attending the church. Travel is restricted and there is no end in sight. In these times of trouble, I look to 1 Samuel chapter 17 and read how David overcame his hurdle, the 9 ft giant named Goliath. David did not overcome this problem based on what he had in material things, David overcame the hurdle based on his faith and obedience to God. His problem was not bigger than his faith!

Baptized in the Spirit

Baptized in the Spirit | Can those baptized in the spirit learn to share their faith? Yes! In designing a formation workshop, Fr. David shares the importance of building on the graces received in the Church through the renewal movements, especially the Charismatic renewal. | #podcast #christianpodcast #christian #christianity #baptizedinthespiritBeing Baptized in the Spirit of the Paschal Mystery ~ Episode 30 

Can those baptized in the spirit learn to share their faith? Yes! In designing a formation workshop, Fr. David shares the importance of building on the graces received in the Church through the renewal movements, especially the Charismatic renewal. The reason for this approach is that the basic features of the Charismatic Renewal are the essential building blocks of grace in relationship to the process of conversion and spiritual renewal in the human personality.

This inspiring book by Father David Tickerhoof, Third Order Regular (TOR), on the role of Merciful Penitents in the Renewal and Reform of the Church

Father David’s book is available! “Evangelizing Catholic Culture,” get your copy today.

 

 

These features can be identified as a deep personal relationship with the Lord, the development of a life of prayer, a hunger and desire to know and live in the Word of God, and a profound experience of the Holy Spirit and the spiritual gifts and charisms of the Holy Spirit. As basic and important as these elements are they are by no means the last word in regard to the complement of graces an individual needs for a complete and total renewal in the Holy Spirit identified as The Church’s Grace of Renewal.

It is not a coincidence that the spiritual renewal movements in the Church occurred at the same time as the Vatican Council II. Pope Benedict was tireless in reminding everybody that the basic renewal and achievement of the Council was again placing the experience of the Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ in the heart and at the center of all Church life. The scripture in the Gospel of John chapter twenty, which recounts the appearance of the Risen Jesus to the disciples gathered in the Upper Room Easter Sunday night clearly illustrates this profound reality. The core elements of the Paschal Mystery are the Passion, Death, Resurrection, and the bestowal of the Holy Spirit. Easter Sunday night Jesus appears in the splendor of the Resurrection, shows the disciples his wounds, and breathes on them the commissioning gift of the Holy Spirit. When an individual is being prayed with for, being baptized in the Spirit of the Paschal Mystery, they are receiving the powers of the Cross, the Resurrection, and the gift of the Holy Spirit. A threefold experience of power which is one actualizing power of grace. There is much more here than what one thought that they were usually receiving when they were baptized in the Spirit in the Charismatic Renewal.

The terminology used in the early days of the Charismatic Renewal was presented by well-meaning individuals who usually did not have a theology background. This powerful experience for the most part was identified as an experience of the Holy Spirit and the charisms. It was not clear that the Cross and the Resurrection of Jesus was also a part of the mix. Many in their growth gradually moved to see that a profound experience of the Holy Spirit should lead to experiencing the power of the Cross and the Resurrection, but many did not. Therefore, fifty or sixty years later some are saying that it is necessary to build on the experience of the Baptism of the Spirit, and include the profound experience of the Cross and Resurrection; the essential parts of the Cross and Resurrection should be integrated in the prayer when praying for an individual or group for the Church’s Grace of Renewal. Being baptized in the Spirit of the Paschal Mystery may be a more accurate way of identifying this powerful actual grace of renewal. The next podcast will provide a suggested outline for a workshop offered to people who desire a more powerful experience of the Paschal Mystery of Jesus, or for being baptized in the Spirit of the Paschal Mystery.

May We Pray!

Dear Father, we ask you and your beloved Son, Jesus to enlighten and guide us to design a program which will fill us with all the graces we need to experience the Church’ Grace of Renewal. We desire to be deeply infused with all the graces which can come to us in regard to a new life in the Spirit together with a complete experience of the power of the Cross and Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. And may this beautiful mystery of love be given through the immaculate heart of our Mother Mary, who may lead us into the wonderful mystery of Divine transforming love. Amen

Knowing God’s Will

If you think that knowing God’s will is impossible, think again. How can I make such a bold claim? It is easy, and I promise it will set you free. This podcast will change the way you think about prayers and promises to grow your faith.

Sponsor Media Angels, Inc. – One More Child book — A Few Minutes With God

You may think it is a bold claim to proclaim that God’s will can be known to us, but truthfully it is a decision on our part to allow the Almighty to work in our lives and that takes trust, we truly do not have the ability to do it on our own. So, what do we need? We need grace from God. Jesus himself gave us a directive in the Lord’s Prayer, the prayer He directly gave the people, and in turn us. In Matthew 6:9-10 the first half reads “This, then, is how you should pray: “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

Knowing God’s Will

And in a nutshell, this is how we should pray each and every day:

  1. Lord, I give you my will.
  2. Lord, please give me your will.
  3. Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

This is life-changing, and if we can do this multiple times each day, your life will change. This prayer unites our will to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. This prayer reminds us that we have free will and can make choices each day to that can help us or hinder us and our spiritual life. If you want to grow in your prayer life try this prayer.

Many of us are going through a hard time. And if you are not, just wait–each day brings its own challenges. By asking that the Lord’s will be done in our life at least insures to a small degree that we have done our part. We have accepted the Lord and His divine and permissive will for our lives. But why do good people suffer? My sarcastic answer would be, “Because we are not in heaven.” But, the scripture has much to say about this:

1 Peter 4:17:19. (read on audio)

Wow, is that harsh? We are not used to hearing that God’s household can be judged because frankly brothers and sisters we don’t hear it in our churches, in our Bible studies we want the glory and praise version, and when we are hit with this verse, we think about this person and that person who should hear this–because of course, this applies to their lives and not to yours. Am I right? How often have you heard a sermon or even podcast -or even this podcast and you are thinking of someone you wish could hear this. But, we–me and you —we need to stop and say “I hear Lord ready to do your will.”

Just consider this. If you have a child who says, mom or dad, I want to do what you want me to do. Please instruct me and allow me to do your will. What would we think? We’d be so excited that our child finally got it! Our kid is brilliant, our child realizes that it is easier to go along with parental instruction than it is to buck God’s authority. Am I right?

Well, now consider God and how he thinks about those who want to do His will, who want to follow the narrow path that has some bumps, twists, and turns but ultimately leads to everlasting life.

In  James 4:13-17 (read on audio)

Friends, we make plans daily and we think, no worries I have tomorrow. What about those who don’t have tomorrow, what then? What about their everlasting life. I think about officials in high places that lead the sheep astray, I think about the clergy who are too afraid to say anything negative about politics or shutdowns of our church, our right to the freedom to worship. What about the souls of those who were not fed? God said, “Feed my sheep.”

The sheep do not have well-formed consciences, the sheep follow blindly, the sheep do not have the gift of discernment because it has not been formed. You want the grace to know God’s will? Pray, I give you my will, please give me your will. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Friends if all Christians prayed God’s will, if all Christians repented and asked God for a relationship or deeper relationship in their lives, if all Christians in one voice said–your will God not mine, we’d see a revival.

Let’s pray:

Dear Father, Son, and Holy Spirit I come before you sinful and sorrowful. I ask you my God to give me the grace to form the gift of discernment, this is a gift that you freely give us, it is a way we can see evil for what it is and not be dissuaded in our mission to serve you. Please my God give me the grace to say, my Lord and my God, I give you my will, please give me your will. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Dear Lord, I ask you the following prayer… and I pray this in Jesus’s Name. Amen.

Does Money Dictate Your Behavior?

Who do you serve? God or money? In today’s world, the overwhelming issue is that money is dictating the behavior of people.Who do you serve? God or money? In today’s world, the overwhelming issue is that money is dictating the behavior of people. In 1 Tim 6:10 we are told that the love of money is the root of all evil. I can attest to validity of that statement. Money cannot physically harm us, but the decisions we make on how we use the money or the thoughts we have on how to save, give away, or spend that money is a mirror of our faith.

Pray the Psalms

Some Facts about the Psalms

  • There are 150 psalms
  • David wrote about half of them
  • There are different types of psalms

Types of Psalms

  • Hymn
  • Thanksgiving
  • Lament
  • Royal
  • Wisdom
  • Pilgrimage or procession
  • Prophetic speech

What else?

The psalms cover the entire range of human emotion and experience and so can be very helpful in prayer. One-third of the psalms are psalms of lament, which reminds us that it is okay to pour out our heart and soul to God, our anger, disappointment, frustration, all of it! He knows it, tell him. It helps.

No matter the type of psalm, I always feel comforted, knowing that I am not alone in the emotion I am experiencing.

Psalm Suggestions

  • 34, Thanksgiving to God who Delivers the Just
  • 97, The Divine Ruler of All
  • 142, A Prayer in time of Trouble

Magnificat ® is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God, an image of the Church, and model for all Christians, especially women.

Two hundred Catholic women from all walks of life crowded into a Knights of Columbus hall on October 7, 1981, to have breakfast and to hear a woman’s personal
witness to the power of God in her life.

The women who left that hall were filled with a joy that only the Holy Spirit can give; that is, a deeper awareness of God’s loving presence in their lives and a burning desire to share this wonderful experience with more and more of their sisters in Christ.

The modest breakfast held on October 7, 1981, is today, a ministry to Catholic women known as “Magnificat” with Chapters in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Europe, and Africa.

While the Magnificat Meal is the main function of the ministry, Magnificat is much more than “putting on a meal.” It is a time of praise and worship, fellowship, and prayer.
Magnificat is a private association of the Christian faithful under the vigilance and jurisdiction of the local ordinary. The ministry is consecrated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

The essence of Magnificat is the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). Magnificat is a woman-to-woman ministry which calls forth a lively faith in God and His actions in daily life, a love for Mary and for the Church, and deep holiness. The words of Our Lady’s canticle in Luke’s gospel take on a personal significance for Magnificat women as they seek to magnify the Lord in their own lives and lead others to know His great love and goodness.

We encourage you to join us as we pray, learn, and experience what God can do in our lives if we let Him!

Where do we find faith and hope in our lives? We tackle our mountainous to-do lists daily and find ourselves overwhelmed and floundering. And then we wonder where does our hope comes from, surely not the things we turn to daily for escape. Tune in for the answers.

Thanks to our sponsor

I wish I had all the answers for every struggle you are going through right now. But, while I don’t have all the answers I know someone who does. And, that is the focus today, where do we find our faith and where do we place our hope? Is it in the escape of a movie or a book? Is it in micromanaging the lives of others, or reading social media posts in order to find humor or join in a discussion that will surely bring anxiety before it brings peace?

Where does your faith and hope come from? It comes undeniably from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. But, that does not mean we do not have to pray for it daily. Here are some helpful ways to pray with the scriptures:

Daily pray: Lord helps me in my unbelief. Give me faith and hope!

  1. Psalm 23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
  2. 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
  3. Leviticus 26:12 And I will walk among you and will be your God, and you shall be my people
  4. Proverbs 28:1 The wicked flee though no one pursues, the righteous are as bold as a lion.
  5. Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

When we pray with those scriptures as well as others we will find that faith and hope is renewed. Recently I was messaging a friend on Facebook, they sell my books when they travel to speak. And he left me with this – God is good all the time. So I responded in a message back, “And all the time God is good.” – that is so uplifting. It is like a secret handshake when we can acknowledge with another believer that we realize that only in God’s goodness are we redeemed and are we happy. Because even with faith we find ourselves at a loss from time to time. Floundering.

When we find ourselves stressed and out of sorts it is due to relying on ourselves instead of asking our gracious Lord for help. I learned that when I am overwhelmed it is time to Stop. Drop. And Pray. It is the SOS to the Lord that I need help and I need it now. Even in times where there is nothing pressing or weighing on us we use it as a pick-me-up.

In the Scriptures, we feel a sense of urgency often when Jesus is surrounded by crowds. They are urgent to rush him and ask him for a healing or a prayer or some type of favor. Why is there this rush? Because the people who did not fully understand – or had less of an understanding then we do today could sense the holiness surrounding him and they thirsted for this. Just as we thirst for more of Him and less of us in our lives. We pray Lord I do believe, help me in my unbelief. We pray in a way that is foundational for all of the times we have lacked the faith to see our ways through a tough situation. God will not leave us orphans. He is our Father and at the time of challenge, He may be stretching us to grow us in our faith.

God challenges us to grow in our prayer lives as well. Our eternal happiness is in heaven and it awaits us. We must die to self to fully appreciate and understand that this world lacks, by a pale comparison to the bliss of heavenly life. Friends we have absolutely no conception of this life and that is why we cling to our lives here. We have the free will to choose daily. And what do we choose? Matthew 16:26 says “What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?”

I choose the life that the Lord has for me. I choose God. I choose everlasting life.

Let’s pray:

Dear Lord, I ask you to continue to increase my faith and my hope in You. You are the answer for all joy, peace, and love in the world that has turned upside down. I thank you, Lord, for giving me clarity eyes that see and ears that hear. I pray that you continue to give me a sense of discernment and sound judgment. Dear Lord, please continue to bless me, my family, and my friends’ and I pray specifically for the following needs: And I pray this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Being Proactive vs. Reactive

Proactive vs. ReactiveDefinition of being proactive versus reactive. There is a difference between being a subscriber of a service to being an owner of a company providing that service. As a subscriber, we can choose to avoid those things that are contrary to our beliefs. An example is subscribing to Netflix and choosing to watch family oriented programming and avoiding watching programs that are sexually explicit, show nudity and violence. If you have internet service, you can choose to avoid pornography and use the internet service to research scripture. It is all in the hands of the subscriber and how they use those services. If you own shares of a company that provide internet services or programming, you may be profiting from those things you disagree with. As a shareholder you can be proactive and voice your opinion to shareholder services or vote on key issues. Ultimately, you can divest yourself of those companies you own that profit from and support those activities that are contrary. It is a question of being proactive versus being reactive. Many times, it is an ownership issue.

Grace of Christian Renewal

Christian Renewal |The grace of Christian renewal begins with faith in a living God. In the last podcast, I reviewed the initial development of the Charismatic Renewal and what has happened to the movement to this point. | #podcast #christianpodcast #Christianity #ChristianfaithThe Grace of Christian Renewal ~ Episode 29

The grace of Christian renewal begins with faith in a living God. In the last podcast, I reviewed the initial development of the Charismatic Renewal and what has happened to the movement to this point. We surely want to thank God for the wonderful works of grace that have been available within this movement. Yet along with the Charismatic movement and other programmatic offerings of spiritual and pastoral renewal in the Church we need to ask ourselves the question,  are these opportunities in and of themselves sufficient to bring about a mature or completed experience of the Church’s Grace of Renewal? For the sake of this presentation I would like to answer, they are not! And if not, is there something we can consider that may move us forward in this consideration?

The Christian Renewal begins with this book:

This inspiring book by Father David Tickerhoof, Third Order Regular (TOR), on the role of Merciful Penitents in the Renewal and Reform of the Church

Father David’s book is available! “Evangelizing Catholic Culture,” get your copy today.

Christian Renewal:

What most did not seem to understand was the fact that this outpouring of special grace was simply the initial experience of the Church’s Grace of Renewal. The activity and special presence of the Holy Spirit was intended by the Lord to move into a full and complete experience of the glorified Lord by each individual Christian. In other words, much more was intended to happen after the initial experience and empowerment of the Holy Spirit and the manifestation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Which gifts are the practical application of the Pentecostal Experience in the daily life and activity of Christians? How might we identify the complete experience of the Church’s Grace of Renewal?

At times in the Charismatic Renewal, individuals tended to over concentrate on the Holy Spirit as the central reality of spiritual transformation. For sure that concentration is necessary, but if it becomes excessive or overdone other dimensions of the process of growth and transformation are neglected. When a person exercises a balanced approach to the grace of spiritual transformation three powers become one: The power and gifts of the Spirit, the power of the Cross of Jesus, and the power of the Resurrection. Therefore, the power of the Cross of Jesus and the beautiful splendid experience of the glory of the Resurrection comes into play in addition to the work of the Holy Spirit. For a mature and most effective experience of the life and power of grace involves a threefold power of the Spirit, the Cross, and the power of the Resurrection. This is what is meant by the Church’s Grace of Renewal. This is what Pope Benedict XVI Identified as the main message of the Second Vatican Council. Pastoral theology identifies this threefold experience as the Paschal Mystery, which includes the effects of the death, Resurrection, and the Pentecostal experience. When Jesus appeared in the splendor of his glorified state in the Upper Room on Easter Sunday night, he showed the disciples his wounds, and breathed on them to receive the power and commissioning of the Holy Spirit: “On the evening of the first day of the week, when the doors were locked, where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst and said to them, Peace be with you!” When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. The disciples rejoiced when they saw the Lord. Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me so I send you”, and when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained.” (Jn. 20:19-23)

The Father and the Spirit raised Jesus from the dead. After that momentous occasion when Jesus appeared on earth, it was no longer the historical Jesus before his resurrection. It was now the splendor and power of the glorious Jesus risen from the dead. He now radiated the glorious power of heavenly reality. Jesus still bore his wounds magnifying the mighty power of the Cross. And he was filled in a new manner with the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. All the spiritual gifts were incarnated in the person of the risen glorious Son of God.

At times in the Charismatic Renewal, individuals tended to over concentrate on the Holy Spirit as the central reality of spiritual transformation. For sure that concentration is necessary, but if it becomes excessive or overdone the other dimensions of the process of growth and transformation are neglected. When a person exercises a balanced approach to the grace of transformation, the power of the Cross of Jesus, and the beautiful experience of the glory of the Resurrection comes into play, in addition to the work of the Holy Spirit. For a mature and a most effective experience of the life and power of grace involves a threefold power of the Spirit, the Cross, and the Resurrection. This is what is meant by the Church’s Grace of Renewal. This is what Pope Benedict XVI identified as the main message of the Council. Pastoral theology identifies this threefold experience of grace as the Paschal Mystery, the effects of the Death, Resurrection, and the experience of the Power and gifts of the Holy Spirit. And we see this reality symbolized on the night of the Resurrection by Jesus, when he appeared in his splendid glorified state of being, showed the disciples his wounds, and breathed on them to receive the power and commissioning of the Holy Spirit. (Jn.20:19-23)

Therefore, the conclusion is that it is necessary to develop a renewal program in a retreat or seminar atmosphere, which integrates all three renewing powers of grace and the charismatic gifts for individuals, who want to participant in a specifically designed program that will achieve the necessary objectives of the Church’s grace of spiritual renewal.

May We Pray for Christian Renewal!

Dear Lord, we are so grateful for the wonderful outpouring of the Holy Spirit in our life. In the Church, there are many brothers and sisters who are hungry for the transforming power of the Holy Spirit that will bring sanctification and holiness in their human lives. We humbly seek your wisdom and understanding, which will help us serve our brothers and sisters in their journey of holiness and peace. We pray this prayer in the name of Jesus through the heart of his mother, Mary, the Mother of the Church. Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cure For Fear

Cure For Faith | There is no cure for fear, or is there? Everywhere we look, no matter what time or place there is something to fear, if we allow it to creep in. Fear is a tool of the enemy. But, there is an answer! | #podcast #Christianpodcast #cureforfear #combatfearCure For Fear – Episode 158

There is no cure for fear, or is there? Everywhere we look, no matter what time or place there is something to fear, if we allow it to creep in. Fear is a tool of the enemy. There is indeed a faction out there that wants us to be fearful. But, with Almighty God we can combat fear, we have weapons and tools!

Sponsor Media Angels, Inc. – One More Child book — A Few Minutes With God

Do we recognize Jesus in the everyday? He promised to be with us always. And while we understand so many things on the intellectual level our hearts are often heavy and burdened. The first thing I would like you to do is briefly think about what is your fear, what are you carrying on your shoulders? What is it that is weighing you down? Is the state of our world? Is it your children? Is it fear of fires, hurricanes, floods, disease, viruses, tornados, or other disasters? What is it in your life that has caused you to fear? If we look at Psalm 10 the beginning verse may sum up how you feel: “Why, Lord, do you stand far off? Why do you hide in times of trouble?” Is that how we feel that the Lord is a far way off?

Sometimes I catch myself thinking way too much, psychoanalyzing things and wondering and worrying. I think we do more harm to ourselves in overthinking things at different times. What does God expect of us? I can’t talk for the Almighty but I do know that the Scriptures are clear on what He expects. The Israelites were a prime example at the time of the prophet Jeremiah in showing us what turning your back on all that is good and holy does for a kingdom. It destroys it!

We have an everyday choice to obey, love, and seek the Lord, to give him our hearts. Everything I have, everything I am, is a gift from God. So, in other words, what I am is God’s gift to me. Think about this. What I am is God’s gift to me. Many times we think we are not enough but if we consider that we are a gift from God it changes our perspective.

Evil on the other hand is a very frightening thing and the way we respond to evil says much about ourselves and our state of being. in Mark 3:22-30 we read:

22 And the teachers of the law who came down from Jerusalem said, “He is possessed by Beelzebul! By the prince of demons, he is driving out demons.”

23 So Jesus called them over to him and began to speak to them in parables: “How can Satan drive out Satan? 24 If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. 25 If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. 26 And if Satan opposes himself and is divided, he cannot stand; his end has come. 27 In fact, no one can enter a strong man’s house without first tying him up. Then he can plunder the strong man’s house. 28 Truly I tell you, people can be forgiven all their sins and every slander they utter, 29 but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; they are guilty of an eternal sin.”

30 He said this because they were saying, “He has an impure spirit.”

We can not credit the evil one with what belongs to God. At the root of all evil is pride. Pride is the root of all sin. Do we find ourselves prideful? Do we think we know better than others how they should live their lives? Do we choose the world over God?

We read here the Lord’s admonishment is that we can not be a house divided. And. let me pause here and say that we need to form our conscience on the rock of truth. Not truth as the world tells us but truth as it is presented by the Christ, the living Word of God. If a kingdom is divided against itself that kingdom can not stand. If a house is divided against itself the house cannot stand. We must be unified and. we must be in prayer with Almighty God.

Once again, how much time do you give the Lord? Is he foremost in your thoughts daily? Do you begin and end the day in prayer. Set reminders if you forget in your busy day, but truthfully our Lord takes precedence over every other thing in our lives.

Once again do we choose the world over God? God wishes us to resist the tactics of the evil one and those are the things that rob our peace. Recently I was blessed with an outpouring of pure joy. It made no sense. I was just joyful! It wasn’t something I was thinking of something I was doing it just was. These times are far and few between, and please Lord bless me with more of this because it was heaven! It was a sense of security, and love that surpasses all understanding and just a sense of well being that all was right in a world where all is wrong.

So, friends the cure for fear as I have found are the five following points:

  1. As a believer, you are NEVER forsaken. Realize that the Lord is Lord of all. He knows everything. He will not leave you floundering or wanting. He is there for you.
  2. Be grounded in the word and the Scriptures. Memorize Romans 8:28Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.2. Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

    3. Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

  3. Choose Christ over the world. Choose God each and every day.
  4. Surrender your will to God – more on this in upcoming podcasts – Daily – Lord I give you my will, Lord please give me your will. They Kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
  5. Trust. Trust God with your life and your future. This of course takes faith but God will give you the gift of faith. Just ask!

Simple right? Of course not. It takes a daily walk and a large dose of faith. The faith that surpasses all understanding. And, for that my friends, we will pray!

Dear Jesus. You are the Lord of Lords and we know without a doubt that you have us in the palm of Your hand. We love you and we praise You Jesus and ask that you watch over us and give us that dose of joy that sustains us through any dark times. We give you our fears and lay them at the foot of your cross – you have overcome death and with your resurrection have conquered evil once and for all> evil has no power over you, and I pledge my allegiance you to my God who are good and deserving of all of my love! I pray for those I’d like to life up today… and I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Difficult Topics of a Financial Plan

We, as responsible stewards, must be prepared for the unexpected.Creating a financial plan isn’t simply talking about investing. A financial plan has many moving parts that can and will change over your lifetime. There are topics within the financial plan that people like to discuss and there are issues that people avoid because of the sensitivity to the topic. Death is one of those subjects that people avoid, especially when discussing the potential loss of a child. Avoiding the subject does not prevent the devastating possibility from happening. We, as responsible stewards, must be prepared for the unexpected.

Magnify the Lord

What does it mean to magnify?

It means to make something appear larger, to enlarge, increase, enhance. The archaic meaning is a bit different and more in line with what we think of in relation to God. It means, to extol, glorify, praise, bless, worship, venerate and adore.

Scripture

PS 34:2-4 I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall always be in my mouth. My soul will glory in the LORD, let the poor hear and be glad. Magnify the LORD with me and let us exalt his name together.
Luke 1:46-55   is Mary telling all that God has done for her and her ancestors. It is her response to what God has given her.

How do we magnify God and how does God magnify us?

The above verses remind us that we have much to thank God for and when we do, we are magnifying what he has done so that others can see it. It is one way we share the Good News. But God also takes our work and prayers, small or large, and magnifies them. In the same way as a small bit of yeast leavens all the dough (Matthew 13:33) he takes what we offer him and makes it bigger. God can use all we do for his glory if we put it at his disposal.

As Christians, that is our call – to both magnify the Lord and let him magnify us.

Spend some time praying about this: How can you magnify the Lord? And how does he magnify you?

Everybody Loves Shauna

This week, Shauna tells us about the adventures of teaching her kids to cook.“Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for a lifetime.” It’s Biblical, no? But it isn’t enjoyable. This week, Shauna tells us about the adventures of teaching her kids to cook. We learn what the three staples of successful cooking are, and how to survive at college. If you didn’t know boys were different from girls, Shauna is here to give a gentle reminder. Don’t sweat the small stuff, and when something stinks – it’s best to tell the boys, because they likely don’t even notice.

We’ll also enjoy the adventures in Mother-in-Law-hood. Shauna tells us all about her MIL and what a wonderful person she is. We also learn about how great a MIL Shauna will make should the need ever arise.

Also, don’t miss out on not cute kids, and that little rascal who cooks that everyone on the internet is raving about. Spoiler – he ain’t cute.

Daddy Makes Walking Fun

This story emphasizes the bond between a little girl and dad despite the fact that they don’t have a car like many other families. Although other children sometimes tease her, the little girl in the story realizes there are benefits to walking everywhere with her dad and that they have a special and close relationship. It celebrates the relationship between father and daughter instead of focusing on material things. The story is told through words designed to help children ages 4-7 with their reading skills and is designed with colorful illustrations and featuring children from diverse ethnicities and backgrounds.

Special Replay: Worthy of Blessings

Are you worthy of blessings? Blessings come to us in different ways and in this episode we will look at the blessings we receive as well as the cost. | #podcast #christianpodcastWorthy of Blessings? Special Replay!

Are you worthy of blessings? Blessings come to us in different ways and in this episode we will look at the blessings we receive as well as the cost.

Thanks to our sponsor Media Angels and the book, One More Child – download a free chapter at MediaAngels.com

In the book of Revelations 5:12 we read the phrase many of us are familiar with, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches, wisdom and strength, honor and glory and blessings.” I don’t think any of us would argue that Christ is worthy of these blessings. He suffered and died to bring us salvation and this sacrifice has withstood the test of time, The Holy Bible is the most read book in the world.

Who do we consider worthy of blessings in today’s world? Is it someone who has accumulated wealth, someone who is famous or someone we admire for something great they have accomplished? Worthiness is in the eye of those who consider it important. Yet in the time after the Resurrection, we learn that worthiness meant something totally different.

Peter had denied Jesus three times! He was a man that walked with the Lord for many years, who watched him teach, perform miracles and at at the table with him. Yet, this was also a man who did something dishonorable, and he was even warned about it by our Lord – then became a changed man. This change came when he was forgiven.

We read that after the resurrection, the apostles went back to their old way of life and while fishing they noticed a man on the shore — the man asked them if they had caught any fish and they said no. SO he instructed them to throw down their nets yet again (similar to when he first called them to be his apostles). They had fished all night and when morning came they were asked …

Worthy of Blessings

John 21: 1-7

Peter became a new man – he was forgiven! We have hope friends! But with this hope comes the fear and we feel it today. Unborn babies are in even more danger than before with new laws being enacted. Believers who stand up for the rights of the unborn are ridiculed and condemned. Recently a lawmaker did a live stream video of him harassing a lady praying at the sidewalk of an abortion clinic. She was praying for the unborn baby who was about to lose their life – and this man was calling her horrible names and telling her how evil she was.

If you stand for the truth – for the Lord you will be worthy of blessings but also at a price.

When the apostles began to do as Jesus asked they were harassed.

It meant that if you preached in the name of the Lord, you would be condemned by the Sanhedrin – as Jesus was and it was considered an honor.

Read all of Acts from about Acts 5:20-41 -this is where the apostles were captured for preaching and put in jail – when the guards went to get them they found the jail still locked and the men preaching to the crowds.

They rejoiced because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name!

Are we worthy of blessings? Yes, if we are willing to pay the price.

Let’s pray!

Dear Lord God, you are worthy of all praise, all glory, and all honor. I thank you, Lord, for what you have done for me in my life. I love you Lord and I ask that you help me in my faith journey, show me the ways you want me to feed your lambs and tend your sheep. Help me in my process of worthiness and I ask that you walk alongside me each and every day. Make my path straight and righteous Lord! I ask Lord that you hear my prayers for the following people and needs … I praise you, my God, that you hear all of my prayers and answer them as I need them to be answered and I pray this in your Name – Amen.

The Dangers of Insolvency

An alarming trend that I see as a financial planner is the high number of Christians who’s estate would be insolvent at death.An alarming trend that I see as a financial planner is the high number of Christians who’s estate would be insolvent at death. Insolvency is when your you owe more than what you are worth. I also see a larger number of people accumulating debt past the age of 65. These issues have the strong potential to leave a disaster for you loved ones. Simple planning based on God’s word can lead us out of the quicksand before it becomes a devastating financial issue after you have moved on to your eternal home.

Revolutionary Stewardship

Financial Stewardship is meaningless without that eternal perspective and how it guides us through the decisions we make. In Ecclesiastes Chapter 3, King Soloman observed and journaled many things pertaining to the seasons of our lives. His conclusion was that everything is meaningless without God’s eternal perspective he has placed in our heart. Financial Stewardship is meaningless without that eternal perspective and how it guides us through the decisions we make.

Becoming a Deacon

In the Catholic Church, there is a group of men, called permanent deacons who are married and serve in various ways. This episode looks at how one man heard his call to become a deacon and acted on it.

Who is it?

It’s my husband, Deacon John, and I am happy to have you hear his story of how God spoke to him. It is a personal story and certainly not the experience of all deacons. But, that’s the way God works. He treats each of us as the unique individuals we are, not reaching us in the same way.

What is a permanent deacon?

A permanent deacon is a man, married or single, who wants to serve God in a particular way. Each diocese has different rules as to the age of the man, the schooling required, and other variables. What is consistent though is that deacons are ordained to serve at the altar and proclaim the Gospel at Mass. They can also baptize, officiate at weddings, and bless items that people want to have blessed.

Why did I interview my husband now?

Because this month is his 5 year anniversary as a deacon. I thought it would be nice to share his story.

Questions?

Leave your questions in the comments and I’ll answer them.

This week, take a few minutes to thank a deacon for saying yes and serving God and the Church. If you don’t know a deacon, thank your pastor, priest, a sister – a person you are grateful for who said yes to God.

Magnificat ® is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God, an image of the Church, and model for all Christians, especially women.

Two hundred Catholic women from all walks of life crowded into a Knights of Columbus hall on October 7, 1981, to have breakfast and to hear a woman’s personal witness to the power of God in her life.

The essence of Magnificat is the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). Magnificat is a woman-to-woman ministry which calls forth a lively faith in God and His actions in daily life, a love for Mary and for the Church, and deep holiness. The words of Our Lady’s canticle in Luke’s gospel take on a personal significance for Magnificat women as they seek to magnify the Lord in their own lives and lead others to know His great love and goodness.

We encourage you to join us as we pray, learn, and experience what God can do in our lives if we let Him!

Charismatic Renewal

Charismatic Renewal | Charismatic Renewal in the Catholic Church in this country emerged right at the close of Vatican Council II in the years of 1966-67. | #christianpodcast #podcast #catholicpodcast #charasmaticrenewal #charismatic What Happened to the Charismatic Renewal Episode 28

Charismatic Renewal in the Catholic Church in this country emerged right at the close of Vatican Council II in the years of 1966-67. Young leaders in East Lancing and Ann Arbor, Michigan and a few other places began holding prayer and praise gatherings, and some of the participants began experiencing the manifestation of the charismatic spiritual gifts.

This inspiring book by Father David Tickerhoof, Third Order Regular (TOR), on the role of Merciful Penitents in the Renewal and Reform of the Church

Father David’s book is available! “Evangelizing Catholic Culture,” get your copy today.

What Happened to Charismatic Renewal?

To mention a few: praying in tongues, prophesy, healing, words of wisdom, etc. (1 Cor. 12: 4-9) They did not know what to call these spiritual gifts, so they consulted several theologians in the Church. They asked the leaders what was happening? The leaders related what was happening at the prayer meetings. The theologians responded that these manifestations were charisms. They suggested that the leaders call it the charismatic renewal. This suggestion may or may not have been a wise one, because right from the start it separated those who received the gifts from other believing Christians. This quickly caused a reaction and resistance by those who had not received the gifts. From time to time you would hear people say, “that is not my spirituality!”

Over 50 years have passed since the beginning of this phenomenon, and many wonderful things have happened in the Church. Initially, prayer groups sprang up within the Church. Many individuals went through a short preparation program called a “Life in the Spirit” seminar, after which a person would be prayed with for an actual grace of empowerment called “the Baptism in the Spirit”. This experience for an individual usually brought forth a wonderful new experience of grace, empowerment, and refreshment; usually a transforming gift of love from the Holy Spirit where a huge difference happened in their spiritual life, in addition to the experience of some of the spiritual gifts. Significant activity and effects from this grace of renewal began in a person immediately. A personal relationship with Jesus became so real with many individuals, a new love for reading the Word of God, a noticeable and permanent enhancement of the grace and power of the Holy Spirit guiding and leading one in their daily personal life, and other blessings as well.

The dynamism of this grace made major contributions in many aspects of relationships, services to the poor, and significant spiritual growth. Different types of new communities or associations developed for the purpose of providing various kinds of Christian service for others. Some of these new communities became identified as covenant communities, which made available growth and personal formation and supported members in living a fuller and richer way of life. The Renewal Movement developed many different types of mercy services and good Christian teaching for others. It also provided for various ministries and works of evangelization. It cannot be overstated how much personal good this movement and its fall out have had for many individuals and for abundant life in the Church.

I can assure you that I would not be sitting here preparing this podcast if God in his goodness and mercy had not bestowed this wonderful grace of new life, spiritual refreshment, empowerment, and transformation on me in 1969. I am profoundly grateful that the Lord poured out this beautiful unmerited gift of grace upon me at the time of my deepest need; and I will praise and thank Him forever for his gracious mercy to me.

From the early days of Charismatic Renewal until this very day many things have changed. Some prayer groups have died out for lack of interest or just disappeared. The early leaders who were young at the time never recruited new members and the young leaders are now in their late seventies and early eighties; the numbers in attendance have significantly depleted. Some people who received a meaningful spiritual renewal have gradually lost the strong impact they once experienced. The new social religion of Secular Humanism has caused many who began well to not be ending very well in the process of Christian maturity and a holy way of life. Secular Humanism has infiltrated all aspects of society, also many aspects of Church life. Generally, it could be defined as a way of understanding what it means to be a human being. It entails living a set of values that holds there is no need for God in our human life. It is necessary to push God out of the margins of human existence. We, humans, are independent and have no need of God or religion. It tends to be narcissistic and rigorously independent submitting to no one; yet leaving the human soul anxious, empty, lonely, and fearful. If we tried going back to the beginning of the Renewal attempting to recapture the grace and enthusiasm, we may find that effort impossible.  So the question I leave with you is this: Where do we go from here, and how do we benefit and increase the wonderful things that God may want to do in us and for us in the days ahead? The next podcast will look at some possibilities that may be helpful!

May we Pray!

Father, we rejoice in your love and mercy. We know that you have a wonderful plan for the Church and for our personal lives. We truly hunger for your love and grace in order to know, love, and serve you in every way we can. We plead with full assurance for much more of your Holy Spirit and the precious gifts that you have in store for us in the days ahead. Together with Mary our Mother we humbly and peacefully beseech you abundantly for these rich treasures through Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen

It allows us to see the truth to avoid darkness and to be ready for what is in store for those who love the Lord!

Welcome to AFMWG – this is a milestone episode for me – 100! When I began this podcast I had a handful of listeners and I believed the Lord wanted me to continue, even if I could fit all of you in my living room! However, as this show has grown in the number of listeners I am blessed by the power of God and some of you have given me feedback on what this show means to you – thank-you. If the Lord has helped me to help one person then this show has been worth it.

How do you connect to me? Via social media – we have a FB group for this network, look for the Ultimate Christian Podcast Network. You can also comment on our website at AFewMinutesWithGodPodcast.com – each show has it’s own post where we are open for comments.

And, please share this podcast with a friend to keep us growing and give me a star rating on your favorite podcast app. Thank you again for being a listener.

I was chatting with some moms that were talking about seeing a miraculous manifestation. Some thought it looked evil, others thought it was a miracle, a sign from God. Friends, in this case, we need discernment. Why did God perform miracles? He did this to increase the faith of those who saw Him do this, it is to increase our own personal faith. The importance of the gift of discernment could take up the next ten episodes of A Few Minutes With God Podcast! The gift of discernment keeps us from evil. Discernment allows us to see right and wrong, it allows us to recognize a sign that is not from God.

Back when I was learning about the gifts of the Holy Spirit the one gift I didn’t want was anything that had to do with discerning evil. I was young in my missionary walk with the Lord, in other words, I believed I loved the Lord and followed Him, but it was a personal journey – I would never consider doing a podcast or ever talking about anything religious in any sense of the word! Why didn’t I want the gift? Because I was afraid of evil. When we are strong in the Lord there is no need to fear. My mother use to say the devil was the size of an ant and the Lord the size of the entire world, and she is right! Jesus has already won the battle, and he has been victorious so what do we need to fear?

Holy Spirit Podcast here

There was an instance in my life when I met a person and I could sense evil. Don’t ask me how, I could, and it made me shudder. I warned one of my son’s about this person because he had to work closely with her on a ranch and he was very kind and could easily be swayed. Some things happened that caused him to feel the intuition I had was right and he came to me to talk about it, it turned out leaving a job was the best way to deal with the situation.

This “feeling” or “intuition” or gift has happened to me time and time again. It is something you can pray for and ask the Lord to give us and you will find it is one of the biggest blessings!

Starting with 1 Kings 3:11 when God said to Solomon that he didn’t ask for riches, or for the life of his enemies but for discernment to know what is right all the way to 1 Corinthians 12:10 discernment has been sought after by followers.

Proverbs 16:21 – The wise of heart is esteemed for discernment, and pleasing speech gains a reputation for learning.

1 John 5:20 – We also know that the Son of God has come and has given us discernment to know the one who is true. And we are in the one who is true, in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.

In 1 Corinthians the gifts of the Holy Spirit are layed out and especially in 10 we read, “…to another mighty deeds; to another prophecy; to another discernment of spirits; to another varieties of tongues; to another interpretation of tongues.”

To grow in the gifts of discernment we need to pray for the help of the Holy Spirit, ask for the spiritual gifts of knowledge and understanding, and continue to read and study the Scriptures. Get connected to a church, and be sure to keep your eyes on Christ.

Friends, these gifts strengthen us in our walk with the Lord!

Let’s Pray For the Gift of Spiritual Discernment

Dear Father, I ask for an infilling of Your Holy Spirit, please give me the gift of discernment, please help me on my spiritual journey and I ask for the following prayer intentions… Father if it is in your will please answer my prayers, and I pray this in Jesus Name. Amen.

What is a Doctor of the Church

Have you ever wondered, what is a Doctor of the Church? Well, wonder no more. I’ll explain, in broad strokes what that means.

How does one become a Doctor of the Church?

First, you must be a saint. A saint is someone who has great holiness. A Doctor of the Church has holiness that is outstanding. During their lifetimes, they truly exemplified what it means to follow Christ. They also left behind a body of work for us today. Writing, letters, books, sermons, which had great depth on a particular doctrine or teaching of the Chruch. This helps us, even today, grow in our own understanding. Their work has withstood the test of time.

How many Doctors are there?

 

36; 32 men and 4 women. The Church has been selecting DOctors from saints since 1298. The latest, St. Gregory of Narek, was made a Doctor in 2015 by Pope Francis.

The four women Doctors are Catherine of Siena, Theresa of Avila, Terese of Lisieux, and Hildgard of Bingen.

While all the saints are notable, a few are more well known than others: St. Anthony of Padua, St. Augustine, St. Jerome, St. Thomas Aquinas.

For a complete list, look here.

 

I mentioned in my podcast that I am starting a study group on St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans. I’d love to see you there and signing up is as easy as entering an email. 

Our NotLukewarm Challenge this week is to write in honor of all the great writing left to us from the Doctors. Read a bit of scripture or just sit and pray by writing your prayers. Take 5 or 10 minutes. That’s all!

Make Time to Date

Make Time to DateEpisode 50–Make Time to Date

The responsibilities of work and managing a family can be a real challenge for couples that want to make time to date.

Because many women work outside the house, at least part-time, it can be tricky syncing schedules with their spouse or partner who also works.

Building our careers are important, taking time to rest and recreate with our significant other is just as vital. As the saying goes, ‘All work and no play, makes Jane a dull girl’.

So Working Woman Radio Show host, Deanna Cauthen, invited her husband, Andrew, into the studio to talk about what they do to date and maintain the romance in their marriage in their relationship.

Andrew talks about the importance of being flexible when planning dates. He also shared why dating should be a priority for every working couple, and gave some great ideas for places to go to for fun, inexpensive dates.

Against All Odds Prayer Works

Against All Odds Prayer Works | Sometimes we pray for the wrong thing, but often, against all odds prayer works. It is in the little things that we see the hand of Almighty God and in this episode, we will explore that while things seem hopeless we should focus on today, and hope for tomorrow. | #podcast #christianpodcast #prayerworks #praying Against All Odds Prayer Works – Episode 157

Sometimes we pray for the wrong thing, but often, against all odds prayer works. It is in the little things that we see the hand of Almighty God and in this episode, we will explore that while things seem hopeless we should focus on today, and hope for tomorrow.

Sponsor Media Angels, Inc. – One More Child book — A Few Minutes With God

Christian faith revolves around the concepts of love and hope. God is a God of truth, justice, love (unfailing), and hope! We should wake up each day and rejoice, but instead, we are bogged down by the “what ifs” in our lives and the burden of our daily schedules or the things happening in the world around us. No matter when you listen to this podcast I am sure there is a world crisis that is causing you stress and tends to overwhelm you.

How do we overcome and get through just our every day lives and still have hope? Some days are better than others, but it appears that one thing happens it seems like there is a snowball effect in our lives and shatters any sense of peace.

Then there is social media. I am not sure if it has improved our lives or caused us to suffer. Especially when there are disagreements of opinions. it pits family against family and friend against friend. Often it pits people against each other who do not even know each other! What is this? It is senseless strife and worry that only adds to our anxiety.

We can pray things like, “Lord give me the right words to use,” or “Lord please change the other person’s heart.” But, what we should be praying is Lord, do I even engage. We don’t ask the right questions and that is an important prayer, “Lord what should I do?” Remember the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob is our God, and we are His people. As His people, we stand up for Him in our daily lives even when things get hard.

Currently, I’m reading a book that is way above my pay-grade. It is stretching me intellectually because it deals with the philosophy of faith. The title of this book is, “God is Not Nice,” by Ulrich Lehner.  It is an eye-opening in that it makes the argument that if God is good, and kind, and “nice” He is not a God worth following because we get comfortable in our faith. Our faith should stretch us, but our belief in a God that changes our lives, our perspective on the world, similar to windshield wipers on our soul IS a God worth following.

That is where our personal faith convictions take place. When we realize that God offers each one of us a relationship with Him as Creator, we realize that we are special and in essence, we are given dignity. If you think about what an atheist believes it makes me so sad in the fact that after this life that is all there is… nothing follows. What a sense of horror that would be for me to consider that there is nothing more than this life. I wonder if that is why there are so many suicides because of that hopeless despair.

Often I challenge you to think about God, to consider your faith, to spend time with God. Today, I want you to consider a life with God, without hope, without change, with all you see is what you get and there is nothing else. Horrific. That is the only term I can give to this thought. Atheism wants us to believe it is a freeing in the sense that it allows the human person to do whatever they want without any holds on their “free will,” but what it really does is place bondage on their free will by giving into our nature, which at its core is animalistic without a God who gives us a sense of dignity.

Dignity is something that is truly a human trait. It is the thing that pulls us out of bed and helps us to strive for the common and greater good each and every day. God is love but what does love do? It calls us to a greater and higher good, it makes us think of other things besides ourselves.

Good gives us back our dignity – think about this as you listen to this scripture in Luke 8:43-48

Just think about the times we pray. It is different for each one of us. But in those times do we really hold out any hope that God is available to hear us and we hope, answer us? Many times it appears that it is against all odds that prayer works. It is like a lucky hand of cards, or playing a game of chance. It is a thought in our minds, sometimes prayer works and sometimes it doesn’t. Is that how we pray? Is that the best we can do as believers?

I’ve asked you many questions in this podcast and as a Christian, I sometimes struggle with my place in all of the madness in this world. As I write this our world is embattled in a grab for our very souls. So many Christians believe the lies of what they hear on the air-waves and it is hard to discern what we believe and what we hold dear, especially as Christians. But where is our faith?

Matthew 17:20 He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

This is the faith that moves the mountain of our unbelief and gives us hope in the everyday. The God who gives each one of us the dignity of life and the dignity to strive to be the best also gives us the hope that “nothing will be impossible for you.” May God be praised.

Let’s hold on to this thought, the God of the impossible will – against all odds help us in our struggles and give us the words to pray.

Let’s Pray.

Dear Lord, I pray for eyes that see what faith has in store for me, in that there is hope in my life and dignity and love that surpasses all understanding. I realize that nothing will be impossible for you and I ask that you help me not to fear the everyday issues in my life! I give you my day Lord and ask that you help me in what I need to do, to prioritize, and to let go! I chose joy and happiness because I am created by a loving God who laid down His life for me so that I can have life in the world to come. Dear Jesus, I pray specifically for the following needs: And I pray this in the Name of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. AMEN!

A Journal created for boys!

Amy Brooks, a former middle and high school teacher, has written a journal for boys! She is a mom of 3, 1 son and a set of twins – a son and a daughter. Besides taking care of her family, she is behind quite a few websites (the list is below) and now the author of 2 journals from Our Sunday Visitor, Be Yourself, A Journal for Catholic Boys (new) and Be Yourself, A Journal for Catholic Girls.

What’s the journal like?

Amy describes it as teen magazine meets religion textbook! There are writing prompts, activities, pages to color, saints to learn about and more. The journal is for tweens and young teen to use on their own or in a class as independent work. She says,  “The purpose of both journals is to encourage young people to identify as a son or daughter of God and to truly enjoy the journey of getting to know God and getting to know the mission or missions God has planned for each individual. ”

The book would make a great gift for a tween starting middle school, for a feast day or Confirmation. It is something I would have liked to have when my children were that age.

NotLukewarm Challenge

Amy had a great idea for this week’s challenge. Every morning, before you even get out of bed, pick one person to pray for that day and start off by thanking God for that person right away. It’s one small yet powerful way to pray for someone.

Holiness – Can we really be holy?

Holiness – why is it so hard? Why is it such a struggle? Is it just for the saints? Can I really “be holy”?

Today’s podcast, provided by Jimmy Seghers of Totus Tuus Ministries, helps answer those questions and gives some practical guidance on the road to holiness.

We are delighted that you have chosen to join us today. We pray that today maybe a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this podcast. May the Lord speak to each heart the words He wants us to hear!

Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this sharing will help us better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness, and are called to “go and bear fruit, fruit that will last” (John 15:16). Join with us as we come together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me. Holy is His Name!

 


Magnificat ® is dedicated to Mary, the Mother of God, an image of the Church, and model for all Christians, especially women.

The essence of Magnificat is the encounter between Mary and Elizabeth (Luke 1:39-56). Magnificat is a woman-to-woman ministry which calls forth a lively faith in God and His actions in daily life, a love for Mary and for the Church, and deep holiness. The words of Our Lady’s canticle in Luke’s gospel take on a personal significance for Magnificat women as they seek to magnify the Lord in their own lives and lead others to know His great love and goodness.

We encourage you to join us as we pray, learn, and experience what God can do in our lives if we let Him!

Some Values Vatican II

Vatican II | Many in the Catholic Church have no or little awareness of the key values of Vatican Council II | #christianpodcast #catholicpodcast #VaticanII #Catholic #ChristianitySome Values of Vatican II ~ Episodes 27

Many in the Catholic Church have no or little awareness of the key values of Vatican Council II. Rarely is it referred to in homilies or significantly proclaimed in religious education programs. I suppose we could say it is ignored by most Catholics.  When an Ecumenical Council is officially held in the Church, it always ushers in a tremendous time of renewal and reform. Vatican Council II was no exception to that reality.

 

This inspiring book by Father David Tickerhoof, Third Order Regular (TOR), on the role of Merciful Penitents in the Renewal and Reform of the Church

Father David’s book is available! “Evangelizing Catholic Culture,” get your copy today.

 

Vatican Council II presented a renewed vision of what it means to be the church. It shares in the joys and sufferings of the real world in which we live, and presented a new appreciation of the roles and worth of lay people in the Catholic Church; especially a deep regard for the role and place of family life. The Council promoted full and active participation which made it necessary to translate the Mass into local languages, which then fosters communication between the celebrant and the people. Yet we all have experienced this in many ways, and it also includes the continuation of the celebration of the Latin Mass.

The teachings of the Council strongly encourages all Catholics to respond to the holiness of life in this age and to take up the call to be missionaries by evangelizing others to embrace the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and to live their lives in the Kingdom of God here on earth. This is done not primarily by going to other lands, but to respond to evangelizing through the various vocations that they choose in their lives. We pray that the Church flourishes in all the nations of the world, but before all else in the family. It is the family which provides a strong spiritual life and foundation for each believer.

The Council provides the opportunity to relate to other Christians and members of other Religions. It encourages a spirit of respect and dialogue. It most importantly encourages all roles and vocations in the Church to work together in ways that they did not in the past. This is not always easy to do, but through prayer and charity, many good things can come about. The recent Popes saw Vatican II as a chance for deep and personal renewal in a complex changing world. This resulted in reforms that would make the Church more accessible to others, for example, shared prayer and the Mass in English.

However, a primary priority is to return the Church to its roots. This means a renewed appreciation for Scripture, which would make it more accommodating for others to join the Catholic Church. It also made it a significant priority to invite women to be more equally involved in decision making in the Church, and many other aspects of Church life. The Council has made many opportunities for spiritual and pastoral renewal for all members of the Church. And the Council declaring Mary the mother of Jesus as Mother of the Church, which gives Catholics an opportunity to share about this beautiful mystery, and why she is so important to us in light of the abundant and splendor of who she really is for us.

And lastly, the foundation and the most important of all is what Pope Benedict declared when he stated that the most important message of the Council is to draw the whole Church into the experience of the Paschal Mystery of Jesus: the Passion, Death, Resurrection, and the full experience of the Pentecostal experience and the gifts of the Spirit. (Some of the above was taken from various presentations of Archbishop Gregory Aymond of the Archdiocese of New Orleans)

May We Pray!

Father, we pray in the name of your Son Jesus Christ, in order that we may be filled with the true spirit of Vatican Council II. May the sixteen Documents of the Council be for us the core and foundation of the ongoing spiritual renewal and reform which enables the Church to be the salt of the earth and light of the world. Amen.

 

 

How To Pray

How To Pray | When I think about how to pray sometimes I am at a loss. So, how can I dedicate an entire podcast to this topic? Well, it is a challenge. And the key is the following words, God's will be done... | #christianpodcast #podcast #Christian #prayer #prayingHow To Pray ~ Episode 156

Have you thought about how to pray? When I think about how to pray sometimes I am at a loss. So, how can I dedicate an entire podcast to this topic? Well, it is a challenge. And the key is the following words, God’s will be done…

Sponsor Media Angels, Inc. – One More Child book — A Few Minutes With God

How to Pray:

Is there a formula? Is there a quick way to have a hotline to the Almighty? I’m sure if you do a search online you will see the correct way, the wrong way, and everything in between. For me, prayer is a conversation with the One True God. The God that cares about everything I do and cares about the number of hairs on my head (Matthew 10:30) or has us in the palm of His Hands:

“See, I have inscribed you on the palmof my hands; your walls are continually before me.”

I think struggling with prayer happens when we are in the midst of a tragedy or are fearful and feel a situation is hopeless. Nothing is easy, so why should pray?  In addition, we think that if we pray and the prayers are not answered we will struggle with our faith. So, again why pray? Then there is the prosperity gospel which is a spin on Christianity as it focuses on our beliefs. If we believe (and that depends on the strength of our belief),  we will get the outcome we deserve in prayer. God will only answer us if we pray hard and believe harder. Right? That simple philosophy of prayer has led more people out of the church and away from their faith than any other. I’ve talked to people who have turned their back son Christianity because their belief did not pan out in answered prayers, so in essence, God has let them down.

Let’s think about this… we worship the Almighty God of the universe in Exodus 3:14 we read: “God said to Moses, “I am who I am.” He said further, “Thus you shall say to the Israelites, ‘I am has sent me to you.’”

Do we really think we have power over God? Of course not!  As humans, we are given the dignity that only a Creator God who loves us gives – God has given us hope that the future we see on this earth is not all there is. Faith is not a coping mechanism. It is also not a “get out of hell card.” Some think that if we pray we don’t have to worry about eternal damnation. Prayer is so important but also living a life that is right and just. In other words, walking the walk instead of talking.

Yes, we can pray a salvation prayer. Or, if you are a Catholic participate in the sacraments, but once again it is more. There are many forms of prayer for a pentecostal or charismatic there is praying in tongues, the gifts of the Holy Spirit, there is praying extemporaneously, from the heart and in prayers such as the Lord’s prayer. There is singing with I’ve been told is like praying twice. Christian prayer is as diverse as the people praying.

Prayer, like faith, is a choice–a decision that you embrace wholeheartedly, or is it another step in the list of things you should do. Complacency in our faith is a tool of the evil one.

Prayer does not necessarily save us, only Christ can. But, prayer does save us from ourselves. When we pray we are in a state of humility realizing that we are not in charge, and we are in a position of asking the Lord that His will be done for us, and the hope and prayer that we accept His will.

We realize with faith that we are not in charge, we can not manipulate our world or “make our own luck,” as I’ve heard countless people say. Yes, we can choose to be happy, chose to follow God, and select a greater good in this life, but that is a choice. Luck is chance. Faith is not.

Some people think that when prayer is answered, it is pure luck. No! Absolutely not. Answered prayer is Divine intervention of God’s will. I’ve shared this in previous podcasts that sometimes when we pray it is no, not now or yes, but as I contemplate prayer it is really more. God in His infinite wisdom and goodness knows what is best for us so His answer is always His will.

In the Scriptures, Jesus taught us how to pray in what is famously known as the Lord’s Prayer. This is the key to praying and it is simply praying in the Father’s will. I know I recite the Lord’s prayer daily, but like some of you, I have become complacent and say it without thinking.

You should read the entire book of Matthew, but here in chapter six is where we find the Lord admonishes us to pray, not as those who give alms and want everyone to see their good works, but as someone who is humble and realizes our lives are in the care of One who really loves us and not only created the world in which we live but had a hand in creating each one of us, we are the handiwork of God.

Concerning Prayer Matthew: 6:5-14

Please pray the Lord’s prayer, ponder the words and place then in your heart. The keys for me might be different than for you, but the main points are to pray God’s will be done, to pray to forgive others and to ask that the Lord forgives us as we forgive others. God wants us to have peace not turmoil in our lives and it calls to mind

Faith is a gift from our Father. Matthew 16: Peter said, “You are the Christ the Son of God.” For those of us who are believers then our focus as we pray is that the Name of the Almighty the great I AM should have greater significance and be front and center in our lives. Thy will be done–now and forever! Lord give me the words to pray…

Let’s Pray:

Dear Father, thank you for the gift of faith, I believe you are the great I AM and I ask that you continue to increase my faith, and I pledge to follow you in all things, the things that matter, the focus on what is right and good. I stand for life, Lord — all lives from conception to death. I stand for all the is holy and righteous. Thank you, Lord, for all the ways you have answered my prayer, and I pray your will be done. I pray for the following needs and intentions…. and Lord, if your will be done, grant these prayers and petitions in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

 

Make Every Day Blessed – A new Stay Connected Journal

I recently spoke with Jen Frost, a sewist and fabric designer who wrote a book on living out the liturgical year. I didn’t mention it to Jen, but this is one of my favorite topics! How we can incorporate the Church seasons into our daily life is something I think is so important. It truly helps us to live out our faith every day. I also loved the way Jen said it, it helps her make “my faith my own.” If you want more specific information on the Church seasons, I have an episode for you.

A little about Jen

Creating has always been a part of her life; she learned to hand sew at a very young age, and remembers her mom sewing Halloween each year. Jen’s mother-in-law quilts. She introduced Jen to it and she fell in love with it – and that Christmas, after not being able to find an Advent quilt pattern available on the market, Jen taught herself how to write quilt patterns and published her first pattern: Advent Wreaths.

For Jen, creating Christian patterns is a beautiful way to share faith through gorgeous quilts and fabrics! She fills a niche in the quilt pattern market that wasn’t being filled before. Jen appreciates the inclusion that offering faith-filled patterns brings and being able to connect with so many different denominations.

From sewing to writing

Back in 2015, Jen met Allison Gingras on a podcast interview for Catholic Creatives. The pair stayed in touch and when Allison put together a group of women to write the Stay Connected Journals she asked Jen to write the one on liturgical living.

What’s in the book?

The book, published by Our Sunday Visitor,  has 7 chapters, each focusing on a different Chruch season. Advent, Lent, Easter, Christmas and Ordinary Time are discussed. There are scripture references and questions to ponder to help make a connection between the word and everyday life. And while it can read cover to cover, Jen suggests reading it just before the next season, so you’re not reading about Christmas in July! In fact, she has a book club set up on her website that does just that. Take a look at it and consider joining in!

Not Lukewarm Challenge

This week, Jen invites you to consider your family and faith traditions and find out a little more about it. Where does it come from? Why do you do it?  So maybe you’ll ask a family member or maybe it requires a bit of internet research, but either way, find out a bit more!

Unwind and Relax!

Episode 48–Relax and Unwind

As working women, we all live such busy lives, and it can be hard to find time to unwind and relax.

So the other day I got on Facebook and asked my women friends what they do to relax and unwind.  I got a great response and I want to take the next several minutes to share some of the comments from my Working Woman Radio Show sisters.

So, right now, I’m going to put on some soulful jazz music, and if you’re able to, I want you to go ahead and kick off those shoes, get out of those tight clothes, get yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine, and find a comfortable place and put up your feet.  This will be our time to relax, release, and relate.

In the transition from summer to fall, it’s common to experience greater stress. With the kids back to school, the weather getting colder and the holidays approaching, it’s no wonder. There is hope, however, especially when this stress translates into more severe anxiety, depression, insomnia, and stress-related physical symptoms.

Choices We Make

Choices We Make | Christians are held to a higher standard and so are the choices we make. Are we held to this standard by ourselves, or by God? How do we live our lives? In this episode, we will discuss the choices in this world of a wide array of paths that will lead us to sin. | #podcast #christianpodcast #choiceswemake #Christians #ChristianChoicesChoices We Make – Episode 155

Christians are held to a higher standard and so are the choices we make. Are we held to this standard by ourselves, or by God? How do we live our lives? In this episode, we will discuss the choices in this world of a wide array of paths that will lead us to sin.

Sponsor Media Angels, Inc. – One More Child book — A Few Minutes With God

In life, there are so many choices to make and the reason I wanted to share this topic with you is that the choices I see people make are often based on little thought. Currently, there is a war of words going on that slander and hurt, words become two-edged swords. Doesn’t scripture talk about this? Yes, in Hebrews 4:12 we read, ”

For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
God gave us this gift of communication and we use it all wrong! Recently in a private group that I am on with a group of moms that I have known for more than 20 years, someone was offended and decided to leave the group for political reasons. I was heartbroken until I saw a post from one of my friends who said, “Let’s pray for her, and begin for the next nine days with prayer specifically for her and her family.” That was a choice made by friends who are grounded in truth and in Christ! We love everyone, even if they hurt us!
The Scripture reminds us that God’s word is truth. And that if you discern, you often see that the thoughts and intents of our own hearts are not as they should be. Do we look at our motivations? The reasons why, or do we react? So many times the choices we make are based upon reactions, quick judgments, and ill-conceived through behind our decisions. I am very guilty of this.
Currently, on social media there is a war of words and if you are listening to this in five years, I am sure it will be as true in five years as it is today. There is always going to be a difference in the way that people look at things. Yet the way we respond can be godly or in a way that is harmful and tears apart relationships. I have seen families torn apart as well as friends, and it grieves me to no end. And, for what? The choice being made is proving you are right. You will never prove this with anger.
Which brings me to time, and the choices we make to serve. Years ago I realized that I was very quick to volunteer my time. I wanted to help and it gave me a sense of self-worth (translation pride) to receive the approval of others. I realized, finally by the grace of God that I didn’t have to say yes to each and every project and that I could work myself to the bone if I kept up the pace to the detriment of my family. The people I loved the most in this world. These choices were not necessarily a decision between good or bad. That is why it was so hard to figure out what was going wrong.
I find that the way we make our choices are tied to the place you are in your walk with the Lord. Are you grounded? Are you full of God’s love? Are you a half full or half empty type of person? This refers to the analogy of looking at a cup and seeing it as half full or looking at it as half empty. If we look at our lives in a positive light, which I believe is a gift that some have naturally, then it will help us in many ways.

Where are you in your faith walk? Are you raring to go each and every day, looking forward to the day that God has created and looking for those blessings you are sure will come to pass? Or are you looking at faith as a second thought that you remember especially when you are crying out in prayer? I believe how we live our lives is just the beginning.

We are living in what people keep calling “unprecedented times. But, truthfully I believe that each age could say the same thing. Each day there will be things that happen that will threaten our peace, our joy, and even the safety of our temporal earthly bodies. But the love of God is something we can count on and this is not something that we have to worry about or consider. It is a steady force, to describe God is to describe unconditional love. God created therefore he loves. So, with this in our lives, how can we feel saddened or afraid?

2 Corinthians 5:14-21

14 For the love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died. 15 And he died for all, so that those who live might live no longer for themselves, but for him who died and was raised for them.

16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view;[a] even though we once knew Christ from a human point of view,[b] we know him no longer in that way. 17 So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself,[c] not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting the message of reconciliation to us. 20 So we are ambassadors for Christ, since God is making his appeal through us; we entreat you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

Friends that is all we need to know. We can no longer regard people from a human point of view. We have to look at people from the point of view that God has given to us. How do we judge? How do those choices we make affect us as well as those in our life? Do we choose for good or for bad? We are ambassadors for Christ. God is making HIS appeal through us! For our sake, HE made HIM to be sin who knew NO sin, so that in HIM we might become righteous of God.

We are called. You. Me. To live this life to the fullest knowing that Almighty God has got this. Whatever “this” is in your life. What choice are you making?  I pray this is a wake-up call for all of us to chose Christ.

Let’s Pray:
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for loving us for giving us our Lord and Savior who was without sin but took on our sins so that we could be cleansed. I chose to make good decisions, I chose Christ, I chose to live my life in a way that is pleasing to you! Please Lord, take on my burdens and lift them from me. Allow me to understand your will for my life, and help me in my daily yes to you. I pray specifically for the following needs:    And, I pray this in the Name of Jesus. Amen.

A Saint for today, St. Maximilian Kolbe

Who was Maximilian Kolbe?

He was a Polish Franciscan priest born in 1894. He entered the seminary and began studying in 1910 and in 1918 was ordained a priest. While in seminary he formed a group with 6 other men called the Militia Immaculata, an organization devoted to being an instrument of Mary, our Blessed Mother.

Why Mary?

As a young boy, he had a great devotion to Mary. He asked her, “What will become of me?” after his mother asked him the question. Maximilian had a vision in which Mary held out 2 crowns, one white for purity; the other red for martyrdom and asked which he chose. He chose both.

His life

As a priest, he worked in Poland and Japan. He founded a magazine, Knights of the Immaculata; two monasteries, one near Warsaw the other in Nagasaki. When WWII broke out he continued to work spreading the Gospel. He was considered a threat, was arrested in 1941 and sent to Auschwitz.

His death

A prisoner had escaped from the camp and as punishment, 10 men were randomly chosen to die by starvation. One man, called out when chosen, that he had children and a wife and could he be spared. The guards were indifferent but then Fr. Kolbe said he would take his place. So he did. After 3 weeks, 4 men had not yet died so they were given an injection of carbolic acid. Maximilian was one of those men. He died on the eve of a great Marian feast, The Assumption of the Blessed Virgen Mary.

Not Lukewarm Challenge

This week, when you feel indifferent or weighed down by life, pray the Hail Mary and ask Mary to help you.

Hail Mary,  Full of Grace,  The Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now, and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Confessing Where You Are In Jesus

Lucia is continuing her series on the Power of Your Confession.Lucia is continuing her series on the Power of Your Confession. On today’s show she shares the importance of Knowing and Confessing Where You Are or where you’re positioned in Jesus so you can live a victorious life.

If you, or someone you know, is living with depression, oppression, worry, doubt, unbelief, fear of your future or just fear in general, it may be because you don’t know where you’re positioned in Jesus Christ.

Lucia asks the question, “What if I told you, you could be so certain of where you are in Jesus, and that your position of power and authority has already qualified you to walk in victory?”, and then she answers that question for you.

When you were born again, the old you – the real you – your spirit man – was born again.  But that was not the end of it.  When Jesus was raised from the dead, you were raised from the dead! When Jesus ascended, you ascended! This is why the life you are living now is empowered by your faith in Jesus Christ.

Lucia encourages you to start seeing yourself the way God sees you!  Whatever Jesus had, whatever He did, you can have it and you can do it. Plus, where Jesus is seated now is where you are seated!!  Now, your confession is ‘I’m seating with Jesus at the right hand of Father God which is the place of authority!’

I would like to take a moment and thank our sponsor for this podcast, the ABC’s of Who I Am, at Lucia Claborn Ministries.  This resource will build your faith and help you confess who and what God says you are from A to Z according to the Word of God so you can walk in victory!  Lucia Claborn Ministries at LuciaClaborn.com is providing resources to build your faith and teach you who you are and what belongs to you according to the Word of God!

 When you get a revelation or a picture of where you’re seated and the power and authority you have as a child of God, you can enforce Satan’s defeat in your life every time he tries to bring something your way to hinder you or stop you and you can walk in victory!

Do you believe that all men are created equal? If you are a Christian this truth has been ingrained into you from the beginning of your faith journey. In this episode, we will discuss the issues of our times and how we can combat hate with love.

Sponsor Media Angels, Inc. – One More Child book — A Few Minutes With God

What has happened to our world where people of dignity do what is wrong in with a sense of right? Yeah, I’m purposely being vague here because most of us can’t even agree on what is right and what is wrong. There is anger and division that has been sowed on our streets and the discord is taken to levels we have never seen in this country.

We know that the evil one is running scared and rampant and into the hearts and minds of those who are weak and can be manipulated. How strong are you? Can you be manipulated by evil – can you turn against those you love for the sake of being right? I see long time relationships crumbling. If I say that all people are created equal I can be seen as insensitive. But, it is the truth and we are – so where do we go from here?

All men are created equal – yet from the beginning of time we were at war with each other. First the rebellion of Adam and Eve against God’s perfect plan and then with their children,  Cain and Able – brother against brother.

The Bible warns us of this in Matthew 10: 21-23

 “Brothers will turn against their own brothers and hand them over to be killed. Fathers will hand over their own children to be killed. Children will fight against their own parents and will have them killed. Everyone will hate you because you follow me. But the one who remains faithful to the end will be saved. When you are treated badly in one city, go to another city. I promise you that you will not finish going to all the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes again.”

God did not decree that one set of people is over another set that is manmade. In the history of our world, we see that stronger men tend to rule over the weaker. There were pharaohs in Egypt, Kings, and Queens in Europe and royalty throughout.

We see that even in the United States of America men tried to rule over men in the form of slavery and prejudice. I grew up in an immigrant family and we were looked down upon at different times yet we were taught to hold our heads high, to work hard, and to look to God for all our help and answers. My family excelled and while not wealthy were very comfortable with their livings, although I did have uncles and cousins who reached millionaire status. Yet, prejudice will always be in the hearts of men who do not look to God for all their answers. Is it right? No, and we as a people should not stand for it, but it begins with the one person you have jurisdiction and authority over, and that is you. Begin with yourself.

Our constitution has the words in the Declaration of Independence. Let me read a section to you, you should read it yourself. “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Friends, when we allowed the “powers that be” to push God out of the schools and out of the hearts of our children we get anarchy and a sense of despondency. What does the Bible say about equality?

Genesis 1:27 – So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; man and female he created him.

Romans 2:11 – For God shows no partiality.

Proverbs 22:2 – The rich and the poor meet together; the Lord is maker of them all.

Galatians 3:28 – There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Acts 10:34 – So Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality…

and the final one that I love, James 2:8-9

If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors.

That my friends is the key! The golden rule – love others as you want to be loved yourself. Sounds narcissistic but it is true. We should not show partiality but we must stand true to what the Scriptures say and that is there is not one that is better than others.

Truths:

  1. All men were created in the image of God. God doesn’t make junk.
  2. People who elevate themselves over others are called bullies.
  3. If you think you are better than others, try walking on water.
  4. Everyone is a child of God – even if they shun the creator, He still loves them.
  5. If you want to be blessed, try out giving God.

If we are joyful we will share joy. If we are hopeful we will share hope. You may be the only Christian people see and in that way our responsibility is huge! How do you respond, how do you act? Is it with kindness and love? We must pray for each other, for our world and for a sense of brotherhood and unity to come into our hearts and poor into others.

Let’s pray:
Dear Lord you didn’t create junk, we are created in your image and we love you. We praise you that you are a God of justice and we ask that justice reign over our world and our hearts. It starts with us Lord, so make us strong in order to combat the evil one in our world, we ask for love and joy that surpasses all understanding and I bring you these prayers and petitions: And, I pray this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Lucia shares she began walking into victory when she began changing the words she was speaking!  She learned that God created His children to be winners, overcomers, and more than conquerors regardless of what their life looks like at the moment!  She went from living a defeated life in their health and finances into an overcoming life where she now walks in victory!

Are you fearful? If so, join the club with many of my friends on Facebook. It seems that everyone is fearful of something and angry and upset. Fear is something that creeps in without us even expecting it and then it quickly turns to anger, because fear is a great motivator of self-preservation. And if we are fearful we tend to lash out.

Do you know about the tools you have in your arsenal as a Christian? The spiritual tools? Well, let me introduce you to a few:

  1. The Word. The Bible is filled with the tools we need to overcome the evil one. The armor of Christ comes to mind – Ephesians 6:10-18
  2. Our faith. Our faith will sustain us but needs to be shored up – that is why we watch uplifting shows or videos and we listen to podcasts that will enrich and encourage our faith journey.
  3. Our community. This is our family first, then our friends. We have a prayer force that is very strong if it is used wisely (no gossip – just the prayer request, and it does not need to be specific. God knows.)

Let’s start with the Word of God. The word became flesh and dwelt among us – why wouldn’t we call on the Holy Name of God?

John 1:14 – The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Friends, as I share these scriptures with you write them down and read and memorize the verses that you can call to mind in a time of need. If you need a quick prayer, try the Jesus prayer. Invoking the name of Christ is all you need. Another quick prayer is, Jesus I Trust In You – this comes from the Divine Mercy prayer.

At the Name of Jesus – every knee will bow and tongue profess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

Philippians 2:9-11

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.

We know that perfect love cast out all fear, or as the Scriptures so eloquently puts it in 1 John 4:18 But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment.

Fear is horrible and it is crippling. Every time you are fearful turn to the Scriptures. And, this is food for thought. If we do not fear death we have nothing to fear. If our life with God is on a solid foundation why do we fear? Nothing will happen without the permissive will of God, especially over the elements. God is the God of all. He parted the waters of the Red Sea. I believe there is a time of persecution coming – and it is already here in some places of the world – but I also know that if we stay vigilant and in prayer HE will protect us. If not we get to see Him sooner! I know that alone will cause some of you to become worried, but we do not know the time or place, the hour when the Lord is coming back. If we are a Christian our hope is in Christ. Period.

So many people today are paralyzed with fear and are angry. They are angry that people don’t understand or see their side of things or are just plain evil. Groups and sides are aligned with no middle ground. What happened to brotherhood, sisterhood, and praying for each other? Only the silent majority is silent. I’m not saying to go out there and slam into people as people slam into you. I’m saying that our voices can be heard where they really count, in prayer, and in the Divine will of God. Do what he tells you. This is what Mary said, the mother of Jesus at the wedding feast of Cana. She said to listen to the Lord and then you can watch miracles happen, in your own life and in the lives of others.

We are in a time where the scriptures say that we will be against each other this level of anger is unprecedented. I have never seen more sparing of brother against brother and sister against sister. We are in a war of words where right is considered wrong and wrong is right. You can not post an opinion on social media without the people who know better swoop down to tell you you are wrong. The question is not of right and wrong it is of principalities of darkness.

The Bible warns us of this in Matthew 10: 21-23

 “Brothers will turn against their own brothers and hand them over to be killed. Fathers will hand over their own children to be killed. Children will fight against their own parents and will have them killed. Everyone will hate you because you follow me. But the one who remains faithful to the end will be saved. When you are treated badly in one city, go to another city. I promise you that you will not finish going to all the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes again.”

The Son of Man, the second person of the Trinity has already come and as we read in the Scriptures, will come again. God told us in the 10 Commandments – Thou Shalt Not Kill.  Yet abortion is still running rampant in our cities – and people today even Christians do not think that pro-life politicians is the only issue we should be concerned about. Friends, Pro-life as the ultimate issue. We look at our conveniences and our livelihoods but we do not think the murdering of innocent children is evil? No wonder we live in fear.

Do we have love? Does perfect love cast out all fear? Let’s look at 1 John 17-20

This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world, we are like Jesus. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

19 We love because he first loved us. 20 Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.

Let us Pray:

Lord help us to love each other – give me the words to mend fences, to love my neighbor to love those who persecute me for righteousness sake. Dear Lord please cast out the fear in my life. I ask for the following prayers – and I pray this in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Standards and Attachment

July 31 is the feast day of St. Ignatius of Loyola. One of the greatest gifts St. Ignatius gave the Church is the Spiritual Exercises.  The Spiritual Exercises are a way to grow closer to God, to learn to live for him and for the world. In week 2, day 4 of the Exercises he leads you through a meditation on the two standards and then on attachment.

The Two Standards

Do we choose God or the evil one? That is the question. If we choose God, then all of our actions and decisions flow from that choice. If we choose the evil one, our actions and decisions flow from there. Do we want to live for God and orient our lives toward him or not? The answer will help or hinder us in our spiritual lives.

Attachment

How attached are we to material goods? Or our own needs, ideas, and desires? How attached are we to our life, to good health, to money? I tell the story Ignatius uses as an example, a person who comes into a large sum of money. What does she do with it? It is a reminder not to hold on tightly to our own desires but to follow God’s will. When we can follow his lead in all things, we learn to be attached first and most firmly to him.

Our Not Lukewarm challenge this week

Pray the Suscpice prayer morning and evening.

Fearless Faith Journey

Fearless Faith Journey | How do we have a fearless faith journey when our lives are fearful and full of confusion? In this episode, we will discuss how our journey should be one with hope instead of fear, and we should not be afraid. | #podcast #christianpodcast #fearlessfaith #christianfaith #christian #faithjourneyFearless Faith Journey –  152

How do we have a fearless faith journey when our lives are fearful and full of confusion? In this episode, we will discuss how our journey should be one with hope instead of fear, and we should not be afraid.

Sponsor Media Angels, Inc. – One More Child book — A Few Minutes With God

Our fearless faith journey looks different depending on where we are in our lives. If we are young, our journey has just started and as we age we are wiser (I call wisdom learning from our past mistakes and making an oath not to do them again!) And, in the sense we now see this journey with a rearview mirror and some of us like what we see and the others want to forget. There are some things that keep us pinned down unable to move forward in our faith journey. These things are:

  1. Fear
  2. Regret
  3. Paralysis

Many people base their feelings on emotion and what is happening in their relationships but if our relationship with the Lord is on a solid ground out a relationship with our loved ones, our friends will all fall into place. (Podcast on Relationship with Christ here)

Life is a journey and so is our faith. We plan for our lives, our retirement our vacations. We plan for futures but we don’t look at our faith the same way. For some, it is a one-time acceptance. I’ve accepted the Lord Jesus as my Savior, I have repented of my sins and I promise to sin no more, Amen. And that is it – then they live their lives as if they don’t have a care in the world and no outward sign to others of what they have been given. A gift of eternal life. How can we not want to shout it from the rooftops? “JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!” This is a precious gift that some have accepted on their life journey and they don’t ever tell anyone about it!

We begin as baby Christians on a path where we don’t really know what we are doing or what is expected of us. Many think that Christianity is a list of what we need to give up! In fact, the list is more extensive the more someone has lived. God doesn’t say, don’t have fun and live your life in sackcloth and contemplation of your past sins. No, Jesus has died for our sins and all we need to do is release them.

Fearless Faith Journey

Faith is freeing and sin bogs us down, it gives us anxiety it makes us feel horrible. We are built with a conscience whether you like it or not. Let’s say you steal and you are not caught, how does that make you feel? If you have a well-formed conscience you will feel horrible. Picture this, a clear glass that is brilliant and multi-faceted. The light that is pure can flow through the glass and in the glass. Now put the glass in a pit of mud, and what do we have … we have glass that is dirty and the light filters through there and there but mostly is blocked from entering. That is the state of our souls when we sin and have an absence of God – and for many of us, we don’t even see it. Lying. Gossip. Anger. Self-Righteousness. Stealing. Killing. and so forth.

When we see rioting or looting we think, “How can people do this?” We see evil for evil. We see good for good. Others may not see this as clearly or if they do, they chose evil.

Our faith journey has ups and downs but that happens when we forget that Jesus is Lord and God reigns. We forget and we become sad or despondent. We take the cross of illness, anxiety, stress, and allow it to bog us down to the point that we are indeed paralyzed and fearful. The question is how do we get past these roadblocks in life?

Write them down. Right now. Stop this audio and write down what is preventing you from your travels, your personal life journey. What are you holding on to? What can you not let go of? What fear is overwhelming you? What is the issue in your life that has no solution? Our fearless faith journey begins with these five point:

  1. Remember that we have been redeemed by the Lord ~ Revelations 5:11

    11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12 In a loud voice they were saying:

    “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
    to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
    and honor and glory and praise!”

    2. Jesus has already died and paid the price for our sins – do you believe, truly? If so, why are you fearful?

    3. God the Son, the eternal word became flesh and dwelt among us in order to share in our life in all things except sin. Have you given your life to Christ and invite Him to walk alongside you?

    4. Every issue in life has a solution, but sometimes the answer is not we want.

    5. Our hope is in the Lord and in no other.

    Recently I heard a sermon and it was beautiful in that the Priest reminded us that our hope is in Christ he talked about praying and I felt that sometimes when we pray we can use different words. We can learn so much from the Scriptures – what did Martha and Mary say to the Lord when their brother Lazurus was sick? “Lord, the one that you love is sick.” Take those words and apply them to your own prayers – Lord the one that you love is fearful, Lord the one that you love is worried, unemployed, hurt by the words of someone they love…” We can use these words as we pray and the needs in our life and the needs of others.

Our journey in life should be joyous and fulfilling. It should be rich with the knowledge that we are not going it alone. Who do you have in your life? Even though I can not see you I know that you are listening and I have so many of you in my life, I pray for you and you pray for me. It is a journey we are talking together. This journey of life is not lonely if we have the Lord. It is full of richness and love, a love that flows our of us and can’t help but spill onto others.

I pray that your journey begins to improve that those uphill battles begin to even out, that those dips in the road become filled with the sweetness and joy that comes from knowing that God has not forsaken you, and He is right there alongside you – only if you have asked Him to come into your heart and onto the road of life.

Let’s pray:
Dear God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit – thank you for filling me with joy as I teach today’s session and I ask that you allow this joy to filter through the airwaves to those who are listening. Give them a sense of you alongside them on this journey of life, allow them to see your hand in their lives and be thankful. Dear Lord help us and come with us as we continue on toward the journey of life and our faith journey. Allow it to become deeper and deeper with more of you and less of us. I pray for the following intentions: And, I pray this in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Jesus is The High Priest of Your Confession

Lucia continues her series on the Power of Your Confession as she shares Jesus is your Advocate and Satan is your adversary, your accuser, or your enemy so you need to be aware of the words you’re speaking because they will either empower your Advocate or your Adversary!Lucia continues her series on the Power of Your Confession as she shares Jesus is your Advocate and Satan is your adversary, your accuser, or your enemy so you need to be aware of the words you’re speaking because they will either empower your Advocate or your Adversary!

Revelations 12:10 says, “the one who accuses them before our God day and night.”  Because Satan is a legalist and doesn’t understand the gift of Grace, He’s using the Law against you and accusing you with his words before Father God for everything you do.

However, God’s made a way to help you! He gave you a public defender, an advocate, who is above reproach and knows the Law.  Father God is your Judge and He’s already judged you righteous!  He’s the Judge that taught your defender and advocate everything about the Law, and He’s constantly making intercession for you at the right hand of Father God.

Thank you to our sponsor for this podcast, The ABC’s of Who I Am, at Lucia Claborn Ministries.  This resource will build your faith and help you confess who God says you are from A to Z so you can walk in victory!  Lucia Claborn Ministries at LuciaClaborn.com is providing resources to build your faith and teach you who you are according to the Word of God!

Hebrews 3:1 say Jesus is the High Priest of your confession so when you combine His High Priestly function with His legal function of being your advocate, He becomes the counsel for your defense and the High Priest of your confession.

Jesus paid a high price on the cross with His shed Blood to set you free and His Blood is still your defense.  Although Satan is accusing you before Father God, Jesus defends you in two ways.  The first is that He’s always making intercession for you at the right hand of Father God, and as you make your faith confessions by speaking the Word of God, He becomes the Great High Priest of your confession.  This is why your positive, faith-confession is of the utmost importance to live a victorious life!  If you don’t speak the Word of God or if you have a negative confession, you give Satan the power to convict and defeat you.

Speaking positive, faith confessions is a Spiritual Law that God put into effect for your benefit to help you walk in victory. You can apply this Law to your life everyday with your faith-filled words.

An Interview & Book Notes with Christina Semmens

Welcome to Christina Semmens, author, speaker and spiritual mentor from Say Yes to Holiness. Christina’s book, Say Yes, Discovering Purpose, Peace and Abundance in your Daily Life was written in response to her own personal experiences and others who are seeking to become saints. A convert to Catholicism, Christina’s life change when a friend invited her to a Good Friday service in a Catholic church. She has a personal encounter with Christ and eventually joined the Catholic Church in 1989. Since then, she has been on a journey to wholeness, growing in virtue each day, living out her faith.

Her book is bilingual, English and Spanish, and focusing on 3 themes: Discovering Deep Purpose, Encountering Authentic Peace, and Embracing Abiding Abundance. Each theme is fully developed, leading you deeper and deeper into your own personal path to holiness.

She talks about being intentional, being aware and the need for a response. How are we living out our faith every day? Christina talks about 4 steps: prayer/meditation, the sacraments, growing daily in virtue and abandoning yourself to God’s will. While she has examples of different ways to engage in these, there is no one size fits all. It is a process, not a program.

I have read parts of her book and cannot wait to get a hard copy of it. I know I’ll want to underline and make notes in it!

To learn more about Christina Semmens go to her website or Facebook page. To receive book notes and news beginning on July 31, text 66866 with say yes to holiness and you’ll be able to stay up to date on what’s new!

the not lukewarm challenge

 

For the Not Lukewarm challenge, Christine suggests a daily examen and gave a brief outline: 1 What are you grateful for from your day? What could you have done better? Ask forgiveness for your failings. And ask for a good night’s rest and to do better tomorrow.

 

Out of the Abundance of Your Heart

Lucia’s continues her series on the Power of Your Confession and shares that what’s in your heart in abundance comes out of your mouth. Lucia’s continues her series on the Power of Your Confession and shares that what’s in your heart in abundance comes out of your mouth.  Luke 6:45 says, A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.”

These words are what’s controlling your life. God’s plan is for you to live in victory while you’re here on the earth.

If you want your life to change, you have to change what’s in your heart and what’s coming out of your mouth.  You have to give God something to work with, so you need to speak the Word of God!  You are the one who can decide what your life will be like because God designed His system to work that way.

The best way to move forward in life is to let the Word of God get down in your heart so there’s in an abundance of it in your heart. Then when you open your mouth, the Word of God comes out and God will confirm His Word in your life.

I would like to take a moment and thank our sponsor for this podcast, the ABC’s of Who I Am, at Lucia Claborn Ministries.  Learn and confess who God says you are from A to Z so you can walk in victory!  Lucia Claborn Ministries at LuciaClaborn.com is providing resources to build your faith and teach you who you are according to the Word of God!

What you believe, think and say about your condition, circumstances, and situations is what’s already in your heart.  This is why it’s so important to read your Bible, find God’s promise for your condition or situation, and meditate the Word of God so you can hide it in your heart and speak it out in faith.

Relationships come and go and yet with Christ, the relationship is everlasting. In this episode, we will explore the meaning of hope, the senselessness of fear, and the relationship that keeps on giving!

Sponsor Media Angels, Inc. – One More Child book — A Few Minutes With God

We all know about relationships and how much work they take. If we were sitting together in a room filled with 100 or more people we could share our experiences and I bet they would be all over the board in many cases but the essence would look like this:

  1. Relationships are wonderful and precious.
  2. Relationships take work.
  3. Relationships can be horrible and scar you for life.

We’ve all had ups and downs in our relationship and my list of one through three is the gamut from everything is wonderful to it was the biggest train wreck ever. But our in-person relationships would be wonderful if we have a solid relationship with God. There is no way we can be loving, generous, and kind without the love, generosity, and kindness poured into us by God.

While our relationships with others may not work out our relations with the Lord will always work out! We can be sure of the love of God is endless and unending. God loves us no matter what, His love is unconditional.

How can we love someone we have not spent time getting to know? We can’t. Yet, we expect to have a relationship with Christ that is amazing and wonderful, and yet so many of us do not want to put any time into it … yes, there is that pesky word again. Time. Just a few minutes, a few minutes with God. The refrain has been used over and over in my podcasts, but it is so true. Without spending time with God in His Word, in listening during times of quiet, in watching good and wholesome shows and videos that encourage an uplift us and do not terrify us!

So much of what I see shared are videos that want to scare us into submission or into a panic. The idea of the world ending has always been an age-old issue. The Bible talks about world destruction. The world-wide flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomora. And, we are currently living in a time that is as bad as those days, so of course, the people who make videos are going on an on about the end of times. But fear is not from God. In addition, the Lord himself told us that we were not to fear but to realize the (Matthew 24:35) “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

Matthew 24 – beginning with verse 32 and ending at verse 32 is amazing – I will read you a section of this in regard to the Lord assuring us about the end of time… Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

A couple of noteworthy phrases I want to mention:

  1. No one knows the hour – not the angels or the Son
  2. We should be watchful
  3. The hour will be when we least expect it.

We need to worry not about the day or time – but about the state of our souls. Where are we in our relationship with Jesus – do we truly have a relationship with the King of King, the Lord of Lords, the Bright morning star, the Alpha and the Omega? Or do we just think of the Lord as there always, and use as needed?

Relationships take work friends, and our work takes all of our time. I am guilty of this as well, yet when I go to my Lord, when I picture myself resting my head on his shoulder I am filled with the truth that He has not forsaken me. He is waiting and he is ready. The question is – am I ready? Are you ready? Where are you spending your time?

Relationship with Christ

How can we work on our relationship with Christ? Realizing these truths:

  1. If we are fearful that means we don’t trust – so trust God!
  2. Praise God each day. One of the easiest ways to enjoy the day is to begin by thanking God for our life.
  3. Don’t fear death. Death is everlasting life without sadness, pain, or anger. It is a place of happiness and joy – so get ready!
  4. Remember, each day is precious. Set up reminders if you can not find the time to spend with the Lord – plan it, and stick to the plan.
  5. Enjoy your relationships with your family and your friends. Seek out the good in others and bless them with a smile and pray for those who irritate you!

Let’s pray –

Dear Lord, we are a people that long for you and we will never be satisfied unless we have you in our life. Our souls thirst for fulfillment but nothing on this earth will fulfill us as you can. Please Lord, help me to see this as I continue to grow in my relationship with you. Help me to find the time, give me more time for this purpose. Dear Lord I pray for the following intentions: (prayer request here), I praise you and I thank you, for hearing me and providing for our needs, and I pray this in Jesus’ precious Name. Amen.

Confusion? Chaos? Turn to God

In the past few weeks, I have found myself saying “I don’t know” far too often. I was starting to annoy myself and honestly, feeling a bit dumb. It was not possible that I don’t know that much. But there is much confusion and maybe even chaos happening and it can be hard to have answers to even simple questions, especially involving other people or making plans to go places.

But in all of that, I realized I may now know, but God does. He always has and always will. And so, rather than say “I don’t know” and leave it there, turn it into prayer. Follow your “I don’t know” with an aspiration. A short, one-line prayer asking for something in the moment. Some examples of aspirations are:

  • Bless the Lord, my soul! Lord, my God, you are great indeed! Psalm 104:1
  • I surrender it all to you, Jesus.
  • Come Holy Spirit!
  • Be with me in this time and place.
  • Give me your strength, Lord.
  • Be the Lord of my life. (from Lord of my Life by Matt Maher)
  • Heal me Jesus, body, mind and soul, of everything that is not of you.
  • All will be well. (Julian of Norwich)
  • You are precious in my eyes and honored and I love you. Isaiah 43:4a
  • I ask for grace Father, to do the next thing.

In time, the aspiration may even come before the “I don’t know” ad then you may have a real answer to the question.

Difficult times can be a burden or a chance to turn to God. Turn to him, ask for help, he wants to love us. Turn to his word, Psalms 91 and 104 have been particularly helpful to me lately.

the not lukewarm challenge

 

Our challenge this week: whenever you say “I don’t know” say an aspiration afterward. Hopefully, after a few days, you’ll say it before you answer the questions! What is your favorite aspiration?

I Was Pondering … Accidentals: 3-Minute Meditations

Accidentals – 3 Minute Meditations

Luke 2:19 tells us “And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.”  Some Bible versions say, “She pondered.” The original Greek word for ponder is sumballo which means to “throw together.” Think of these 3-minute meditations as a throwing together of thoughts, ideas, and reflections related to a particular topic.  They are not meant to be teachings, but rather invitations and perhaps helps to reflecting more deeply in your own heart.

Today’s topic is “Accidentals”. “Accidentals” are what we can perceive with our senses: sight, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching. Accidentals are just appearances. We generally contrast them with “substance” which describes the essence or true being. The Eucharist’s essence is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ.

We are delighted that you have chosen to join us today! This podcast is provided for you by Magnificat, A Ministry to Catholic Women.  We pray that today may be a special day in your life as you experience the presence of Jesus Christ among us through this podcast.

Magnificat, taken from Luke: 1, is the great hymn of praise that Mary prayed while visiting her cousin, Elizabeth. We trust that this sharing will help us better understand that we are truly children of God, made in His image and likeness. Join with us as we come together in God’s presence and proclaim that the Almighty has done great things for you and me. Holy is His Name!

We encourage you to join us as we pray, learn, and experience what God can do in our lives if we let Him!

Words Effect Your Life

Words Effect Your Life! Join Lucia as she welcomes Duane Crabtree to the show. Join Lucia as she welcomes Duane Crabtree to the show.  Duane shares how he has become optimistic in spite of various test and trials that he’s encountered in his life and our current conditions.

 

He explains how he made one decision that led him to experience more peace, more calmness, and more joy in his life.  Being positive and thankful…recognizing every good thing in his life and the world around him…has helped him live a life of fulfillment.

 

Making the decision to slow his life down by quitting one of his two full-time jobs has allowed him to focus on the important things in his life – God, family, nature.  And a tremendous bonus is that he’s lost 70 pounds over the past nine months.

 

Duane was introduced to a book that explained the effects of our positive and negative words on frozen water crystals.  As Duane read the book, God gave him the revelation that because our bodies are made of a large percentage of water, our words have the same effects on us as they do on the examples given in relation to the water crystals.

 

We would like to take a moment and thank our sponsors – The Victorious Living Challenges. The 5 Day Mindset for Victorious Living Challenge was such an exciting, life-changing event that the speakers decided to provide a 21 Day Mindset for Victorious Living Challenge July 1-21, 2020, at 7:00 pm CST each night at LuciaClaborn.com/ zoom or on Facebook at Facebook.com/LuciaClaborn to help you set your mind to live a victorious life! Click the links below for more information!

 

He shares that if you want to live a life of victory, you must speak the Word of God and the “I Am” scriptures, which are covenant scriptures, to build your faith to become what and who the Word of God says you are.

 

Isaiah 55:11 tells us, “So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it.”

Your words have the same power to create your world so we encourage you to speak positive words that create life so you can live a victorious life.
