    LYSU-Jeff Overpeck

    This week on level yourself up. I talk about my friend Jeff overpack some things that I've seen him practice I can't say that I've been taught this by him but it's things that he's definitely lived in his life and so reinforced. You know I think some of the times that we don't value our friends until they're gone. He truly was a gift. In my life, and a friend. So join me this week, as I just share three things that stood out to me as who he is, as a person. There's plenty of more that he demonstrated in his life, that I wouldn't even have time to put in this podcast. I did. Attach a link to the sermon, he had prepared since he was an elder at a church. And he had someone else preach it for him. Click here to see Video

    Learning from set backs

    Learning from set backs

    On the podcast this week, I shared with you three ways that you can adjust or Grow from setbacks.
    I share with you three things you can do if we're having setbacks. And most of us are having setbacks in our life with coronavirus. You know there is a lot of people out of work, things we don't understand or are afraid of.
    But now is not the time to slumber now's not a time to be afraid. Now is the time to maybe look at things a little bit differently. So here are three ways that we can do to grow from having setbacks,
    1 Ask yourself what have you learned from this situation and just write make out a list and write some things down things you've learned from your setbacks.
    2 You can ask Do you need a course correction, maybe you've set some goals, maybe you haven't. And maybe you want to create new goals. So now is the time to ask Do I need a course correction on what I'm trying to achieve in this world.
    3 You can look through the things that you wrote down about what you have learned and maybe the things you need to do for course correction. See if you have any fear around that. And if you have fear around those goals, or around those actions you need to take, then you need to put that fear under your feet and kill it.

    Strongholds

    Strongholds

    Hey, you might have noticed this podcast did not get sent out on a Monday mornings like it normally does. And that's because I was not happy with the recording that I had so I decided today rather than release it, I was okay with it being a little late. And so I came home and after spending some time with my family getting some stuff done around the house. I recorded this podcast.
    I just want to share with you that you are loved with a great love that there are mercy and grace. At the foot of the cross. And I just want to remind you that when all that is going on and you feel lost and broken. We can look at what's happening. Take some perspective, some inner reflection that maybe this time is just a time of reflection that we need to reset ourselves and to get our eyes to our first love. Then we can look at what's needed. You know, do we need physically needing a thing do we spiritually need something. Does our family or our loved ones need something? What is the need at hand? Not a want, but what's the real need, then we can start praying for how to get those items, then we need to look at what's next what's on the horizon, what do we need to prepare for and also talk a little bit about strongholds. If you wonder what a stronghold is in your life, you can just ask what negative thing has a strong hold in your life? Then I share with you, Romans 8:17 and in Ephesian 3:37.
    That the spiritual forces of darkness are always on the clock and committed to cause and make our lives miserable. So grab the breastplate of righteousness and that glorious shield of faith in that all-powerful sword of the Spirit and that mighty helmet of salvation. All the while stand there with your feet fitted for the gospel of peace and stand your ground, let's not have any more negative strongholds on your watch. God bless.

    March Reset

    March Reset

    This week on level yourself up. Episode 59, we discuss the reset in March, or what I want to call the march reset. So with that, we're talking about how we need to trust God, to get us through these times that we need to seek His kingdom first and everything that he's doing for us that he will provide. I shared Matthew chapter six verses 26 through 34. So let us just pray for Israel for the world. And for the United States for the country that we live in, that God would heal our lands that we would repent first. And God would heal our lands that we would seek his face. I do believe this shaking is to warn the church, and the world that we need to prepare. I don't believe it is the end of the world.
    Matthew 6:24-34 25“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? 26Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? 28And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, 29yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. 30But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? 31Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34“So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
    I also discuss a little about the book I am reading The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry: How to Stay Emotionally Healthy and Spiritually Alive in the Chaos of the Modern World.
