Surrender Prayer Novena Day 2 Surrender to me does not mean to fret, to be upset, or to lose hope, nor does it mean offering to me a worried prayer asking me to follow you and change your worry into prayer. It is against this surrender, deeply against it, to worry, to be nervous and to desire to think about the consequences of anything. It is like the confusion that children feel when they ask their mother to see to their needs, and then try to take care of those needs for themselves so that their chi ldlike efforts get in their mother's way. Surrender means to placidly close the eyes of the soul, to turn away from thoughts of tribulation and to put yourself in my care, so that only I act, saying "You take care of it". Why do you confuse yourselves by worrying? Leave the care of your affairs to me and everything will be peaceful. I say to you in truth that every act of true, blind, complete surrender to me produces the effect that you desire and resolves all difficult situations. O Jesus, I surrender myself to you, take care of everything! (10 times) Mother, I am yours now and forever. Through you and with you I always want to belong completely to Jesus.

Rev. John Bussman, pastor at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Cullman, AL joins host Rev. Timothy Appel to study Philippians 4:6-20. The church at Philippi had seen the Apostle Paul go through highs and lows during his ministry. As he writes his letter to them from prison, he proclaims to them the joy that remains theirs in Christ regardless of their circumstances. Because the LORD's return is near, Christians live differently in the world. We are freed from anxiousness and worry through the comfort that is ours in Christ. Prayer and supplication flows from our lips to our Father's throne of grace. His peace, given through the death and resurrection of Jesus, is our true guard from all evil. For that reason, our minds are occupied with all the good that He gives, as the Apostle learned and modeled from the Lord. Paul's joy continues to abound through the gift that the Philippians sent. He had learned to be content in every circumstance, whether full or hungry, whether he had plenty or he had need, for Christ was his strength. The Philippians' gift to him was another example of the fruit of faith that the Lord brought forth in them from the beginning of the gospel among them. Because of the richness of that gospel poured forth in Jesus Christ, Paul knew that they would have everything they need. That same comfort and confidence belongs to us as Christians today as we receive Christ's riches in Word and Sacrament. This program originally aired November 28, 2019.

Guests: Nick Bellamy and Johnny Farr Chapter 11 False Gods Principle: You are parenting a worshiper, so it's important to remember that what rules your child's heart will control his behavior. WORSHIP - everything your child has ever said or done is rooted in worship. Worship is that inner desire for wonder, amazement, and awe that every human being possesses. It is that craving to be fulfilled. It is that constant search for life. It is wanting personal meaning and purpose. It's that universal hunger for inner peace. Your kids were made for God. The capacity of your children to worship is the most important biblical insight for parents. Since your children are worshipers, a vital skill for you is to learn how to lead them to confession. To say your children are worshipers means you have no power to free them from their biggest problem. Because your children are worshipers, your only hope for them is the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ. Chapter 12 Control Principle: The goal of parenting is not control of behavior, but rather heart and life change. Psalm 51 Your children need to see their sin, so they'll cry out for God's mercy. Your children need to understand the nature of sin, so they don't minimize its danger Your children need to understand that their problem is not with their parents, but with God Your children need to understand that sin is a nature problem that produces behavior problems Your children need to understand that since sin is a heart problem, the only solution is a new heart Your children need to be taught to run to the only place of hope: the forgiving grace of God Chapter 13 Rest Principle: It is only rest in God's presence and grace that will make you a joyful and patient parent. Your job is to do everything within your power, as an instrument in the hands of the Redeemer who has employed you, to woo, encourage, call, and train your children to willingly and joyfully live as disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. It's not enough to tell your children what to do and what not to do. This passage calls every parent to a deeper goal. You must teach your children how to think about everything in a way that is pointedly God-centered. Chapter 14 Mercy Principle: No parent gives mercy better than one who is convinced that he desperately needs it himself. Parenting is about being God's ambassadors in the lives of our children. Mercy is parenting with a tender heart. Look for every opportunity to shower your children with grace. Be careful to help your children see the heart behind behavior. Remind your heart each morning to rest in the presence and power of your heavenly Father.

In this episode, you'll also hear:How one basketball game changed the trajectory of Tyler's lifeThe difference between confidence and arrogance — and why Tyler says confidence is a game-changerThe importance of setting aside time and removing distractions to focus on writingTyler's advice for the writer who feels God's call but wrestles with self-doubt and a busy scheduleReflecting on a Life-Changing Basketball GameBetween youth ministry, sports writing, and high school basketball coaching, Tyler lives what he calls a seasonal life: his focus tends to change depending on the time of year. Many people would find it extremely challenging to make time for more writing alongside all of those other commitments, but Tyler says writing — and in particular, telling and engaging with stories — is something he's always enjoyed. “We as humans connect the most with stories,” Tyler says. Pointing to Jesus as the greatest Storyteller of all time, Tyler adds that, no matter the setting — be it listening to a sermon or watching a sports match — he's always drawn into other people's stories and always looking for a story to tell. That's why he begins his book, Searching for Seven, with the story of a high school basketball game that ultimately changed the direction of his life. During this game, Tyler was not playing well and had been arguing with his coach. “I remember sitting at the end of the bench thinking, ‘This is not looking good for my career in basketball. I'm not where I wanted to be.'” But then, just when Tyler thought he was finished playing for the night, his coach put him back in the game — and he played better than he ever had before. Thanks to his performance that day, his basketball career took off, and a few years later, Tyler was recruited to play basketball at a Bible college. Although Tyler thought he was only attending that college to play basketball, God had other plans. The opportunity to work in youth ministry one summer turned into a long-term calling. But without that one high school game where Tyler found renewed confidence and his basketball career changed, it's possible he might never have ended up at the Bible college that led him to youth ministry. Finding Confidence in GodTyler's story is a valuable reminder for us all. In the moment, we don't always see or understand what God is doing. But sometimes God is working behind the scenes to put the pieces together and bring about a greater good than we could possibly imagine. Additionally, Tyler's story reminds us of an important distinction between confidence and arrogance. While we should always keep in mind that our gifts and talents come from God, it's also important to believe that we are capable of accomplishing great things with God as our strength. What matters is that “we are putting our confidence in God, recognizing where the abilities come from,” Tyler says. “That's a game-changer: when I can face every day and every challenge knowing He's got my back, He's put me in this position. And it's not really my ability, it's what He's given. And I'm going to use that ability through Him.”Making Time & Space to WriteTyler says he had the idea to write his book several years before he actually started working on it in earnest. “I knew at some point it was going to happen,” he explains, “but life is busy. There's a lot going on. And so for many years, I did not make the time to start writing.” Instead, Tyler would write down notes and ideas here and there. He had a general idea of what he wanted to write about and which stories from his life he wanted to include, but it wasn't until later that he made a conscious decision to set aside time to write. When he decided it was time to focus on his book, Tyler took weeks off from work and used the time he would normally have spent at his job working on his book instead. Sometimes he would work at coffee shops, while other times he would go outside to be inspired by nature.Tyler explains that when doing something important — be it praying, writing a book, or spending time with family — removing distractions is key. While some people may be able to multitask effectively, Tyler has found that trying to juggle multiple things at once only divides his focus and prevents him from giving any of those things the attention they deserve. And, as Tyler has learned, environment plays a huge role in eliminating distractions and helping us focus on the task at hand. “Everything should lead us to worship, even if it's sipping a wonderful coffee or listening to a song that I love,” Tyler says. “I see the stars, I'm out in nature, I'm hanging out with friends — all these things should call us into worship. And so for me to be most creative and most in tune with God and what he wants me to do, those environments are key.”As Tyler reminds us, writing the book God has called you to write doesn't have to be a burden or a painful process. By finding the right environment and focus, you can make it into an adventure of sorts, and actually enjoy the process of writing!Pushing Through ChallengesOf course, no matter how enjoyable the process may be or how focused you are able to be, writing a book is a challenging endeavor. While Tyler believes his entire life led up to him writing this book — which made the process much easier than it might have been otherwise — he also acknowledges that setbacks and challenges are unavoidable parts of life. “There will be big challenges,” he says, “But push through. Keep going. Even if you wonder, ‘Is it worth it? Is there going to be anyone who cares?'” You never know where God may lead you, so if you feel called to do something, keep pushing through, even when it gets hard. Think about this way: There are many times in life when we, like Tyler in that high school basketball game, get second chances. But how we respond to those opportunities can make all the difference. Maybe you, like Tyler several years ago, have heard the call to write but haven't actually taken action yet. Maybe you're in that space between having an idea and following through on it. If so, Tyler advises you to take action on what God has called you to do instead of putting it off, and surround yourself with people who will help and encourage you to keep going. “Believe fully that, if you've ever felt even a nudge from God, there's a reason for it,” Tyler says in closing. “Celebrate the fact that you have a call, that you have the ability to do it. Find some help. And go after it.” BIO: Tyler D. Smith is a pastor, NBA sportswriter, basketball coach, and author; he has also worked in the Christian music industry. He graduated from Lincoln Christian University and has served in ministry since 2005. Tyler resides in Indiana with his wife, Katelyn, and their two daughters, Addi and Ellie.

I believe some of you listening today are discouraged. You have lost your hope and confidence in God. But no matter what your visible circumstances might be, God has not changed. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Today regain your hope in Him. Put your confidence in him. In God's time and in His way, He will come through.Main Points:1. Instead of grumbling, instead of complaining, instead of becoming better and depressed, instead of giving up on God, let's ask some better questions, What am I learning? How am I growing? How can God use this situation? What are my experiences teaching me? In what ways am I experiencing God that I haven't before? What can I be grateful for?2. Gratitude is the antidote to discouragement. Count your blessings. Even in the darkest days you can find something to be thankful for. When you invite gratitude in the front door of your heart, discouragement goes out the back. It's hard to be grateful and discouraged at the same time.3. As I think about the times I have been discouraged, I realize that just about every time, I became discouraged because I took my focus off of Jesus and put it on myself and my circumstances. I pray you won't make the same mistake. Whatever you do, don't throw away your confidence in God.Today's Scripture Verses:Hebrews 10:35 - “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded.Quick Links:Subscribe to The 5 Minute Discipleship NewsletterDonate to support this podcastLeave a review on Apple PodcastsGet a copy of The 5 Minute Discipleship JournalConnect on SocialJoin The 5 Minute Discipleship Facebook Group5 Minute Discipleship on Instagram
Romans 7:22-25 King James Version 22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: 23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

Today Heather continues a conversation with Kirsten Schmidt, a certified eating disorder recovery coach, and the pair dive deeper into the topic of cravings and our relationship with food. Heather and Kirsten explore the common behavior of suppressing emotions and cravings and how we often misconstrue self-control as maintaining a thin body. We discuss the importance of self-control being about following Jesus and loving others, rather than purely focused on our physical appearance. Mindful eating is something many of us struggle with, as we are more accustomed to constant busyness than sitting down and truly enjoying our meals. However, we learn that incorporating gratitude into our meals can make all the difference. Kirsten shares three key insights for understanding cravings, including the need to stop dieting, change our perception of intuitive eating, and heal our body shame and fear of weight gain. Trusting our bodies and listening to its signals is crucial in interpreting our cravings accurately. Throughout the episode, we share personal stories and practical tips for understanding and responding to cravings in a healthy and nourishing way. We also address the shame and guilt often associated with cravings and explore the importance of affirming our cravings. Towards the end of the episode, we have some exciting announcements, including a special episode on holiday food cravings available exclusively for our Patreon sponsors. We also share information about a Black Friday sale on our body image freedom framework program, where you can make use of a discount code just for our listeners. Join us as we delve into the wonderful world of cravings and uncover the truth behind them.

Balancing gratitude, faith, and patience can be challenging, especially in a world that often promotes instant gratification.In the latest episode of the King's Council podcast, hosts Rylee Meek and Christian Edwards delve into a profound discussion on the themes of gratitude, faith, and patience. Rylee Meek emphasizes the importance of daily gratitude, not just during Thanksgiving, and encourages listeners to maintain a positive perspective even in challenging circumstances. He also underscores the need for patience and faith, acknowledging that God's plan may not always align with our desire for instant gratification. Similarly, Christian Edwards highlights the significance of gratitude and faith, especially in times of uncertainty, and promotes the need for patience, recognizing that God's will often involves a journey and faith-building process. Gratitude is not limited to believers, as even non-believers can benefit from having an attitude of gratitude.Key takeaways:Discover the power of gratitude through the life-changing biblical principle from 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.Learn about the "Looking Up and Trusting" approach to lifeGet practical tips on how a simple gratitude journal can revolutionize your mornings and set a positive tone for your day.Gain a fresh perspective on how maintaining a grateful heart can bring peace in tumultuous times.Master the delicate balance between gratitude, faith, and patience and how these virtues can lead to a more satisfying and purposeful life.Quotes: "I think every single day should be a day of Thanksgiving." - Rylee Meek"In everything, give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18" - Christian Edwards“A lot of times… we just become infatuated with the blessing, and we forget to thank the blessor." - Christian Edwards"If there's anything we can be grateful for, it's that no matter our circumstances, He is greater than all of it." - Rylee Meek—Join the King's Council Community: https://joinkingscouncil.com/Follow King's Council: https://www.instagram.com/kingscouncilcommunity/Follow Rylee: https://www.instagram.com/theryleemeek/Follow Christian: https://www.instagram.com/christian_edwards01/Subscribe to YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/@KingsCouncilCoachingWednesday morning Bible Study link: www.kingscouncilbiblestudy.comGet your copy of “The Kingdom Entrepreneur: The 7-Day Blueprint” here: https://www.amazon.com/Kingdom-Entrepreneur-Blueprint-Proven-Template/dp/B0BHY53H23
“That the dead will rise even Moses made known in the passage about the bush, when he called ‘Lord' the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.” Luke 20:37–38Jesus gives this response to some of the Sadducees who question Him about the resurrection of the dead. The Sadducees did not believe in the resurrection of the body, whereas the Pharisees did. Thus, the Sadducees asked Jesus about the resurrection of the body using an almost unheard of example. They refer to the levirate law found in Deuteronomy 25:5ff which states that if a married man dies before having children, the brother of that man must marry his wife and provide descendants for his brother. Thus, the Sadducees present the scenario where seven brothers die, each one subsequently taking the same wife. The question they posed was, “Now at the resurrection whose wife will that woman be? For all seven had been married to her.” Jesus answers by explaining that marriage is for this life, not the life to come at the resurrection. Therefore, none of the brothers will be married to her when they rise.Some spouses have a hard time with this teaching, in that they love their spouse and desire to remain married in Heaven and at the time of the final resurrection. For those who feel this way, rest assured that the bonds of love we form on earth will remain and even be strengthened in Heaven. And when the end of the world comes and all of our bodies rise and are reunited with our souls, those bonds of love will remain stronger than ever. However, marriage, in the earthly sense, will be no more. It will be replaced by the pure love of the new life to come.This teaching gives us reason to ponder further the beautiful teaching of our Lord about His return in glory and, as we say in the Creed, “the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.” We profess this belief every Sunday at Mass. But for many, it can be hard to understand. So what do we actually believe? Simply put, we believe that when we die, our body is “laid to rest,” but our soul enters a moment of particular judgment. Those who remain in mortal sin are eternally separated from God. But those who die in a state of grace will eternally live with God. Most people who die will most likely die with some lasting venial sins on their soul. Thus, Purgatory is the grace of final purification that the person's soul encounters upon death. Purgatory is simply the purifying love of God which has the effect of eliminating every last sin and imperfection, and every attachment to sin, so that the purified soul can see God face-to-face in Heaven. But it doesn't stop there. We also believe that at some definitive time in world history, Jesus will return to earth and transform it. This is His Final Judgment. At that time, every body will rise, and we will live eternally as we were intended to live: body and soul united as one. Those souls who are in mortal sin will also be reunited with their bodies, but their body and soul will live separated from God forever. Thankfully, those who are in a state of grace and have endured their final purification will be resurrected and share in the new Heavens and new Earth forever, body and soul as God intended. Reflect, today, upon this glorious teaching of our Lord that you profess faith in every time you pray the Creed. Keeping your eyes on Heaven and, especially, on the final and glorious resurrected state in which you will live in the new Heaven and Earth must become your daily practice. The more we live with this holy expectation, the more we will live here and now as a time of preparation for this final existence. Build treasure now in anticipation of this glorious day and believe that it is the eternity to which you are called. My resurrected Lord, You now reign in Heaven, body and soul, in anticipation of the final and glorious resurrection of all the dead. May I always keep my eyes on this final goal of human life and do all that I can to prepare for this eternity of glory and love. Jesus, I trust in You.

Dr. Kathy considers how belonging does more than make us feel good. She outlines in the podcast the value of belonging for building identity, highlighting aspects from her book Five to Thrive, where she shares the core needs found in science that are essential for building a solid identity. Dr. Kathy highlights in her book how these needs are true because God made them true and has them manifest in special ways in reality. In her book, she outlines a Christian view of how these needs are met most wholly in Christ and how building an identity on Jesus is one that will never fall or falter.

Where there should have been awe and a sense of holiness, a marketplace existed. Instead of forgiveness, the religious leaders were requiring fees.

You can listen to the full episode by becoming a member at: https://www.patreon.com/indoctrination In this special bonus episode, Rachel offers her thoughts on La Luz Del Mundo, the Mexican mega-church that teaches that it is the only true Christian church founded by Jesus Christ because it is led by Naasón Joaquín, whom it considers the only true servant of God and Apostle of Jesus Christ in this era. Joaquín, however, is now serving a 17-year prison sentence for crimes related to sexual abuse against children and is incarcerated at the California Institution for Men in Chino. In this episode, Rachel offers an inside look at the heart-wrenching destruction that the church committed against it's most vulnerable followers, from her own experience in counseling the brave young women who came forward and testified against their monstrous former leader.

I was invited back to Aeon Byte for a debate - this is uploaded with express written permission. Jay Dyer and Scott Smith joined us for a civil but passionate debate. We discussed the Gnostic and Orthodox differences on Theodicy, Biblical Inerrancy, Free Will, Salvation, the nature of Jesus, and much more. Is the world evil or in harmony? Is the Old Testament about a good or evil god? What were the true origins of Christianity? And much more. For some reason, my vaping was as incendiary as the topics.
