    Brave Men: S2E7 - Hope Is Alive

    Brave Men: S2E7 - Hope Is Alive

    Jesus did most of his miracles in the streets, homes and farmer's markets of his day. Hope has always been found in the community. HOPE IS ALIVE. Hope has a name. Hope is right where you are.

    Here's a word of extremely practical hope. Not the cheerleader type - but the RUACH, presence of God type of hope. The Lord gives us hope, but hope is always delivered by people.

    The enemy hates your guts - but God loves you with a passion. And God has always won every battle.

    Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

    Brave Men: S2E6 - Hope

    Brave Men: S2E6 - Hope

    How do we keep hope alive in the midst of chaos or tragedy? Today we talk about the shocking death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and their friends. How do we deal with these kinds of issues, how do we pick our lives back up and keep going?

    The onslaught of life constantly tries to defeat hope. But it is hope that is the fuel of purpose. There is a key to keeping hope alive - it's an ancient celebration of fellowship that builds and restores hope. This is one to enjoy and share. Courage, wisdom - and HOPE!

    Brave Men: S2E4 - Endurance, Finishing Strong

    Brave Men: S2E4 - Endurance, Finishing Strong

    This is the issue that so many of us are facing today – how will I finish this adventure called life? And, what does it take to finish strong?

    Every life has obstacles, and most often the largest obstacle is not the devil, our neighbor or our culture – it’s us. To live well and finish strong will require a clear understanding of what it takes – and how we can acquire what it takes.

    What you do in life becomes history, but what you put into motion becomes your legacy. The great biblical leader Gideon had a massive start – but didn’t finish well. How did that happen? Is it possible to start with great passion but finish without a purpose?

    In a basketball game, what we see visible on the court is the result of hundreds of practice hours invisible to us … hours that were committed to by the players. Fully committed to becoming better players, athletes. What we desire to see in the visible must first be apprehended in the invisible. Endurance is an invisible quality with a visible result.

    Paul said, “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” Philippians 3:12 NIV

    Remember, your life is not about your present circumstances… they will change. But conducting your life well through the circumstances comes from endurance, faith and hope.

    Brave Men: S2E3 - Your Daily Routine

    Brave Men: S2E3 - Your Daily Routine

    Your daily routine can reduce anxiety and stress, build wisdom and courage … or it can do the opposite. We are what we allow to become routine – or we can become what we purpose to make a disciplined habit. We can choose wholeness of heart and mind. But, it takes a decision.

    Recent studies say 68% of teens in America feel a sense of depression or have acute anxiety … in the most affluent and dynamic culture to ever appear on planet earth – we’re expanding our knowledge but shrinking our hearts.

    I believe there’s a solution – and it simply starts the moment you wake up in the morning. How you start your day, your core foundational launching ritual is what will create the atmosphere of your heart and mind throughout your day. Everything lives or dies based on an atmosphere.

    It’s said that 40 percent of what we do each day is done without really thinking. It’s just routine. Are you compounding the chaos of your life just by what you have allowed to become a routine – or can you change that by building new habits?

    What’s your daily ritual? How do you start and end your day?

    What’s your daily habit for intimacy with God? This is the basic core issue. Because intimacy with God produces a heart that makes the right decisions. Wisdom and courage are in your power of choice.
