    #67 Rise Up & Take the Bull by the Horns!!

    #67 Rise Up & Take the Bull by the Horns!!

    RISE UP. TAKE COURAGE & DO IT.

    We can do hard things & we were made for such a time as this.
    But it's easier said than done, isn't it?

    If we think about things long enough, fear creeps in...fear of rejection, failure, and judgement. Before we know it we are stuck in a toxic cycle and the enemy has us sitting quietly and idly on the sidelines shaking in our boots!

    It's times like these that we need to remember that in Christ we are more than conquerors.

    Today we are sharing the formula for "kicking FEAR in the face"
    AND we are giving YOU a permission slip.

    Permission to be bold, to feel, to cry, to stand up, or to sit down and rest. Listen to the end of the podcast and download your permission slip here! 

    That's right! Christ has overcome the world. 

    No matter what you are facing today, OUR GOD IS BIGGER!

    Ezra 10:4
    Rise Up - from a posture of prayer
    This Matter is in Your Hands - Leaders take action 
    We will support you - everyone needs people
    So Take Courage - Don't let fear win
    and Do IT! 

    A few other episodes to reference: 
    #56 - Not Your Job
    #61 - Faith or Fear...Which One Are You feeding?
    #65 - Screw All of You

    #66 The Crazy Train

    #66 The Crazy Train

    Turns out Ozzy Osbourne had some sense about him when he recorded Crazy Train...who knew?!

    Do you ever feel like you are on the crazy train?
    Here are a few things you can do - 
    1) Understand - YOU are not alone 
    2) Search for the root of your doubt, anger, uncertainty (control, not getting what you wanted, etc.) 
    3. Talk to someone & tell them you are struggling - just getting it out there is HUGE 
    4. Take a new approach to studying scripture (art, journal, translation, listening, etc. ) 
    5. Talk to God more - not less - tell Him what you are struggling with, why and ask Him to show up and show off for you. 

    You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book. – Psalm 56:8
    Crazy Train by Ozzy Osbourne Lyrics
    All aboard Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    Ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay, ay
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love
    And forget how to hate
    Mental wounds not healing
    Life's a bitter shame
    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
    Let's go
    I've listened to preachers
    I've listened to fools
    I've watched all the dropouts
    Who make their own rules
    One person conditioned to rule and control
    The media sells it, and you live the role
    Mental wounds still screaming
    Driving me insane
    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
    I know that things are going wrong for me
    You gotta listen to my words, yeah
    Heirs of a cold war
    That's what we've become
    Inheriting troubles, I'm mentally numb
    Crazy, I just cannot bear
    I'm living with something that just isn't fair
    Mental wounds not healing
    Who and what's to blame?
    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
    I'm going off the rails on a crazy train
    Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    The ledge, ha-ha, the edge

    #64 - Confessions of a Conflicted Christian

    #64 - Confessions of a Conflicted Christian

    Somedays I just want to be the hands of Jesus and slap some sense into people.

    Let's live like a jerk for a day! Can I get a day pass please? 

    It's easy to love Jesus, but His people are a different story!
    As Christians we are held to a higher standard, yet not one of us will be perfect this side of heaven.  (Insert mercy and grace here)

    Today we discuss things we can do to keep us grounded and out of prison.  Remember, you're never too far gone for God's love. 

    Romans 8:38-39
