Best way to start the day
It seems 9 times out of 10 the message for the day is exactly what I needed to hear and gives me a spiritual reference point to refer back to during the day when things don’t go as planned.
For better or worse, the daily habit of listening to this podcast in the morning has changed me.
Sucks to be you. But it can be better!
Pastor Rick helped me to realize what is really important for the eternity that is real. Believe it or not - life after the death of our body is real. Don’t ignore, be indifferent or laugh it away. Eventually you will find out. We all get too caught up in the measly 80 years we have in this earth. Look around you - seriously how can all of this have been an accident?! No way. Too difficult to believe that this is all an accident- much easier to believe in a devine Creator.
I question all the time HOW could it be! Yet God always answers me and tells me not to worry. But only when I’m listening. I have no clue how God always has and still existed. Makes no sense. but then again, and this is super random, why is it that our oxygen works or that some fish need salt water and some need fresh? Why wasn’t every vegetable poisonous or everything for that matter? All by chance? Well for me so much easier to believe it was all designed that way.
A cop out? Sure why not?! And when we die I’ll either be right or wrong. If I’m right, well, an eternity of bliss. If I’m wrong - no penalty- I’ll die and be gone. But if you are wrong, well, sucks to be you because you will have an eternity of of hell whether you believe it in or not. Decide now before it’s too late. Oh there is also a wonderful feeling of knowing what will happen and anyone can experience that while here on earth. You can even have joy and happiness in your life no matter where you are, what your financial situation, or whatever you’ve done that is making you feel guilty. God takes it all away. Your choice.
