Full Text of ReadingsWednesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 307All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint Marguerite Bourgeoys“God closes a door and then opens a window,” people sometimes say when dealing with their own disappointment or someone else's. That was certainly true in Marguerite's case. Children from European as well as Native American backgrounds in 17th-century Canada benefited from her great zeal and unshakable trust in God's providence. Born the sixth of 12 children in Troyes, France, Marguerite at the age of 20 believed that she was called to religious life. Her applications to the Carmelites and Poor Clares were unsuccessful. A priest friend suggested that perhaps God had other plans for her. In 1654, the governor of the French settlement in Canada visited his sister, an Augustinian canoness in Troyes. Marguerite belonged to a sodality connected to that convent. The governor invited her to come to Canada and start a school in Ville-Marie (eventually the city of Montreal). When she arrived, the colony numbered 200 people with a hospital and a Jesuit mission chapel. Soon after starting a school, she realized her need for coworkers. Returning to Troyes, she recruited a friend, Catherine Crolo, and two other young women. In 1667, they added classes at their school for Indian children. A second trip to France three years later resulted in six more young women and a letter from King Louis XIV, authorizing the school. The Congregation of Notre Dame was established in 1676 but its members did not make formal religious profession until 1698 when their Rule and constitutions were approved. Marguerite established a school for Indian girls in Montreal. At the age of 69, she walked from Montreal to Quebec in response to the bishop's request to establish a community of her sisters in that city. By the time she died, she was referred to as the “Mother of the Colony.” Marguerite was canonized in 1982. Reflection It's easy to become discouraged when plans that we think that God must endorse are frustrated. Marguerite was called not to be a cloistered nun but to be a foundress and an educator. God had not ignored her after all. Saint of the DayCopyright Franciscan Media
Full Text of ReadingsTuesday of the First Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 306All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Blessed William CarterBorn in London, William Carter entered the printing business at an early age. For many years he served as apprentice to well-known Catholic printers, one of whom served a prison sentence for persisting in the Catholic faith. William himself served time in prison following his arrest for “printing lewd [i.e., Catholic] pamphlets” as well as possessing books upholding Catholicism. But even more, he offended public officials by publishing works that aimed to keep Catholics firm in their faith. Officials who searched his house found various vestments and suspect books, and even managed to extract information from William's distraught wife. Over the next 18 months, William remained in prison, suffering torture and learning of his wife's death. He was eventually charged with printing and publishing the Treatise of Schisme, which allegedly incited violence by Catholics and which was said to have been written by a traitor and addressed to traitors. While William calmly placed his trust in God, the jury met for only 15 minutes before reaching a verdict of guilty. William, who made his final confession to a priest who was being tried alongside him, was hanged, drawn, and quartered the following day: January 11, 1584. He was beatified in 1987. Reflection It didn't pay to be Catholic in Elizabeth I's realm. In an age when religious diversity did not yet seem possible, it was high treason, and practicing the faith was dangerous. William gave his life for his efforts to encourage his brothers and sisters to keep up the struggle. These days, our brothers and sisters also need encouragement—not because their lives are at risk, but because many other factors besiege their faith. They look to us.

Where do you turn when hardship hits? When God wants to deepen your spiritual maturity, He sometimes takes away all the comforts to which you're accustomed. It's possible for God to lead His people into the wilderness. That's what happened to Abraham. In this message, you'll journey with him through an unexpected famine to face his doubts and failures. In fact, every “famine” you go through tests your trust in God. Click here to listen (Duration 54:30)
To support this ministry financially, visit: https://www.oneplace.com/donate/1085/29 Proverbs 16 tells us, All the ways of a man are pure in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established. That passage describes God's view of success, and it's quite different from the world's view. We'll talk about the biblical definition of success today on MoneyWise. The world's view of success is having enough money, achieving career success and attaining status. But if this is what success really looks like, then why are so many successful people so miserable? WEALTH AND ACHIEVEMENT CAN'T FILL THE VOID It's often said we have a God-shaped hole in our souls. People can spend a lifetime chasing fulfillment, but will never attain it until the day they realize that nothing on earth fits into that God-shaped hole. It's easy for fall for the world's definition of success. Advertising seeks to sell us on this definition every day. In Matthew 6, Jesus warns us, Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven GOD DOESN'T CALL EVERYONE TO A VOW OF POVERTY Now, that doesn't mean that Christians should stay poor and lowly to be successful in God's eyes. Here, attitude counts far more than action. 1 Cor. 13 says, And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I deliver my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing. God often provides an extra measure of resources beyond our needs, in the form of money or other assets, so that we can be generous toward His Kingdom. But He wants us to do that with the right attitude, out of love for Him, and others less fortunate. In Matthew 25, Jesus says that what you do for the least of these, you do for me. He goes on to say, Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink MANY BLESSINGS ARE NOT MATERIAL It's important to understand that God often blesses us in ways that have nothing to do with material things. Loving relationships with family and friends, a strong, nurturing church, and most of all, a deeper relationship with Him. That's the true blessing and true success.. So how do we obtain the good things God promises? In Matthew 6, Jesus says, But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. GETTING THE HEART RIGHT It's also important to note that we can never do these things perfectly. Attitude is more important than results. God simply wants us to diligently seek Him and his righteousness. That means we fully trust in God and we're willing to make things right when we fail. We're quick to humble ourselves continually before the throne of God. Psalm 84 also says, Blessed is the man who trusts in You. God has special plans for each of us that we can't fulfill without fully trusting in Him. He promises not to withhold any good thing from us when we trust Him fully and seek His will for our lives. And we must always acknowledge that any success we achieve comes from God. To help us be a success in God's eyes we must remember three key words surrender, obedience and persistence. Surrendermeans accepting that God owns it all.We're only temporary managers or stewards of what he gives us. Obediencemeans being willing to use God's resources as He directs. persistencemeans sticking with the first two items no matter what worldly stresses or pressure we encounter. Nehemiah 6 asks, Should someone in my position run from danger? Finally, in Acts 21, we see Paul responding to disciples who wanted him to stay away from Jerusalem for his safety. He says, Why all this weeping? I am ready to be jailed but even to die for the sake of the Lord Jesus. Now, that's surrender, obedience and persistence put into action. LISTENER QUESTIONS On today's program, Rob also answers listener questions: ●Is there a way to protect your assets so that long-term care costs don't consume all of your retirement funds? ●Is it wise to take money from savings to pay off your mortgage early? ●How can you make use of a qualified charitable distribution? ●How should you allocate property and assets between your children in your will?

We love that you've joined us this morning for our live Sunday experience with, Kathy Martin. CONNECTCARD: https://ranchchurch.churchcenter.com/people/forms/160169 GIVING: https://ranchchurch.churchcenter.com/giving Message notes by Kathy Martin, January 2 2022 'success within reach' Success in 2022… Proverbs 16:3 NLT: “Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed.” NIV: “Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans.” What does it mean to COMMIT? Hebrew galal: to roll Trust God completely Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. (NLT) Trusting 1-2-3 First things first Matthew 6:33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. (NLT) The King James Version Seek ye FIRST… Leave the heavy lifting to God. When we COMMIT our plans to God, we are surrendering to Him and TRUSTING that He will guide us and lead us in all things. What does God have to say about my PLANS? Proverbs 13:16 A wise man thinks ahead, a fool doesn't. Planning is good Plans can change God has a plan Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. (NLT) Psalm 33:11 — But the Lord's plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken. God is working for our good now and in the future. We never have to wonder if He will come through. What does the Bible mean when it says, my “plans will succeed”? We must do the first part of the verse if we expect God to fulfill the second part. When our plans/actions/work align with God's will, success will follow. Trust in God's success Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. (NLT) God will bless our efforts according to His perfect will in ways beyond our understanding. Plans succeeding could mean my own plans fail God's will is perfect and his plan and purpose are without fail. True success comes from trusting God to do His work in us. We have to trust Him in ALL things.
On this Monday's edition of the program, Bob looks at what may very well lay ahead for our nation and the world. For those that put hope in 2021 being a “good year,” their hopes were dashed. Many are still putting their hope in politicians and the medical profession and not putting their whole trust in God. Bob's heart tells him that 2022 will be a year of truth and even greater deception. Where do we begin to discern the difference? Today, Bob starts the process of helping us to have our eyes open to both truth and God's leading.
"We know the one who knows. We know that God knows the future. He's holding your life. – He knows the beginning to the end. And He knows exactly what's going to happen for you in 2022." Join Sojourn Church and Lead Pastor Chris McRae for our first message of the New Year, as we talk about God's Purpose and Plan for you. He knows what is going to happen for you this year in 2022, and the rest of your life. We can rest assured that God holds our purpose, and that it will be fulfilled. Trust in God's plan for your life.
For the past several years, I've picked word for my year. This word kind of revolves around all of my goals for the year and helps to give me some direction. But this year, I've chosen a theme for my year instead of just a single word. Listen in to find out what my theme is, how to pick your own, and some ideas for incorporating it into your year! Listen to the Podcast: You can find all the links and notes for this episode below! Right click here and save-as to download this episode to your computer. 8 years of themes: 2012: Intentional 2016: Joy 2017: Create 2018: Refresh 2019: Faithfulness 2020: Cultivate 2021: Kingdom And now, my 2022 theme for the year: The Year of Transition. What has gone into choosing this theme: We've got a LOT of transition going on around here. 2021 was a FULL year, but mostly a stable one. Lots of travel as we looped the country 1.5 times. We went to the southernmost part of the lower 48, we visited the hottest place in the USA, and spent time in the highest capital city in the USA - among a million other things. It was a wonderful, full, and busy year. But as I started thinking to 2022, I realized that this is going to be a pretty major transition year for our family - and our ministry here - in many ways. And while "transition" isn't the most fun work to pick, I thought it worked well as more of a theme. The year of Transition. I feel like this is an important distention, because transition can be hard. I'm already a tad exhausted thinking about the decisions coming up for us this year and the possibilities. It's truly a year of transition in many ways, and that could be bad. But instead, we know that God has great things in store for His Kingdom and His People. So for me, it's a positive. I'm walking into 2022, knowing it's going to be chocked full of transition. I'm expecting it and therefore excited to see what God does. For me, The Year of Transition theme has a few helpful distinctives: With many of our very necessary upcoming changes, we don't totally know what the end step will be. We have some vague ideas or even plans, but only God knows truly what will come from this year. So The Year of Transition helps me to remember, that as we walk into the unknown, God is making a path ahead for us. And we don't need to see every step of the way. Transition can be hard, daunting, and even scary. As someone who actually likes change, I already feel a bit overwhelmed at all this year is going to pack in. I feel overwhelmed with research and decisions. And so, The Year of Transition reminds me that it IS a transition year. And in transition, I can find great joy. So as I look forward to 2022, The Year of Transition reminds to me 1) Trust in God's sovereignty in all things 2) let go of the need to control all decisions and 3) walk in Joy - even when it's an uncomfortable season. A few verses I've been looking at as I pray through my to do list has been: A Time for Everything 3 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace." - Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 "He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding" - Daniel 2:21 "Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and ...

"How can I know God's will? " 2. "How can I be a success for God, others, and myself?” Trust is the most important factor in... Knowing God and His will for my life. Growing His Kingdom and myself as a steward. Proverbs 3:1-10 Observations: 1. The commands are all-inclusive. 2. The commands precede the promise. 3. The promises are conditional. Stewardship Statements: 1. God is trustworthy. He is worthy of our complete confidence. He is totally dependable. 2. God has entrusted or placed within our care, the possessions, the opportunities, the talents, and time that we now experience. 3. We are a trustee of everything that God has given us. Trustworthy Thoughts About God 1. God's Care is Constant. 2. God's Gifts are Generous. Developing Our Trust: 1. Trusting in Adversity. We are responsible to trust Him in times of adversity, but we are dependent upon the Holy Spirit to enable us to do so. 2. Trusting in Plenty. The extent to which we genuinely thank God for the blessings He provides is an indicator of our trust in Him. 3. Trusting God as our Source. Human tendency: Trust in God's instruments of Provision rather than in God Himself. "The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. The wealth of the rich is their fortified city, and they imagine it to be an unscalable wall." Proverbs 18:10-11

Reading Exodus 4:1-17 (NLT) ~ Scripture reading followed by discussion. Moses' hesitation to go and fear of the message being rejected shows he currently looks for approval and validation from people more so than from God. God's patience with Moses.

Moore discusses holding on to her faith despite crushing grief in her life from her Bipolar II disorder, miscarriage, and the suicide of her mother.
The Living Principle of Brotherhood God's law is fulfilled only as men love Him with heart, mind, soul, and strength, and their neighbor as themselves. It is the manifestation of this love that brings glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and good will to men. The Lord is glorified when the great end of His law is attained. It is the work of the Holy Spirit from age to age to impart love to human hearts, for love is the living principle of brotherhood. Not one nook or corner of the soul is to be a hiding place for selfishness. God desires that heaven's plan shall be carried out, and heaven's divine order and harmony prevail, in every family, in every church, in every institution. Did this love leaven society, we should see the outworking of noble principles of Christian refinement and courtesy, and in Christian charity toward the purchase of the blood of Christ. Spiritual transformation would be seen in all our families, in our institutions, in our churches. When this transformation takes place, these agencies will become instrumentalities by which God will impart heaven's light to the world and thus, through divine discipline and training, fit men and women for the society of heaven. -140- Jesus has gone to prepare mansions for those who are preparing themselves, through His love and grace, for the abodes of bliss. In the family of God in heaven there will not be found one who is selfish. The peace and harmony of the heavenly courts will not be marred by the presence of one who is rough or unkind. He who in this world exalts self in the work given him to do will never see the kingdom of God unless he is changed in spirit, unless he becomes meek and lowly, revealing the simplicity of a little child. The Only Safe Course Those who bear responsibilities in our institutions should daily seek the way of the Lord. They should not feel qualified to choose their own way, for in so doing they will walk in the light of the sparks of their own kindling. God alone is to be their guide. Those who seek a wider sphere, those who would have greater freedom than God appoints, those who fail to make Him their counselor, their wisdom, their sanctification, and their righteousness, will never win the crown of life. Day by day the soul needs the religion of Christ. Those who drink deeply of His Spirit will not be ambitious for themselves. They will realize that they cannot go beyond the domain of God, for God reigns everywhere. -141- He who is fully content to receive his commission from above will be cheered by the promises of God, as he seeks to do justice and judgment. To have unwavering trust in God, to be a doer of His word, is to pursue a safe course. The counsel of God simplifies the perplexities of business transactions and domestic duties. The followers of Christ who work with an eye single to the glory of God will have heavenly wisdom. But it is a painful fact that in our churches and institutions there is a great lack of true Christianity. May the Lord help those who are bearing responsibilities to unite with one another in their work and to become laborers together with God. Christ said to His disciples: “Ye are the light of the world.” Matthew 5:14. Then how important it is that every soul shall keep his light trimmed and burning, that he may give light to all with whom he comes in contact. God has made His people the depositaries of sacred truth. Talents have been committed to them for wise improvement, for God designs that by constant use their talents shall be multiplied. The Danger from Enlargement My brethren, the enlarging of your facilities, the increasing of your numbers, is not after the order of the Lord. Large buildings call for large patronage, and large patronage calls for men of education and talent, and for men of deep religious experience, to conduct the institution in the ways of God; and to manage it with tact and skill demands that there shall be a general increase in spiritual experience, that the fear of God shall circulate through the sanitarium in order that popular patronage shall not mold and fashion it, and thus cause it to cease to be that which God designed it to be—a refuge for the poor and lowly. Those who are steadfast to the truth should not be set aside in favor of worldlings. Prices should not be set so high to meet current expenses that the poor will, to a large extent, be excluded from the benefits of the sanitarium. -142- With the present talent and facilities, it is impossible for the physician in chief to do all that is essential to be done in the various branches and departments, much as he may desire to do this. It is not possible for him to give personal supervision to all parts of the work. This matter has been opened up before me again and again. While there is continual growth in the institution, while the buildings are enlarging and the responsibilities increasing, there is not a corresponding growth in the talent and capability necessary for the management of so large an enterprise. Will our physician in chief and the members of the board consider this? My brother, you are not immortal. I thank the Lord that you are as wise concerning your health as you are. But you cannot always do as you are now doing. Your health may fail. Your life is uncertain, and it has been set before me that there ought to be three times as large a working force in the sanitarium as there is. Even then the workers would all have an abundance to do if they did their work well. The Question of Wages The institution is now in a prosperous condition, and its managers should not insist upon the low rate of wages that was necessary in its earlier years. Worthy, efficient workers should receive reasonable wages for their labor, and they should be left to exercise their own judgment as to the use they make of their wages. In no case should they be overworked. The physician in chief himself should have larger wages. To the physician in chief I wish to say: Although you have not the matter of wages under your personal supervision, it is best for you to look carefully into this matter; for you are responsible, as the head of the institution. Do not call upon the workers to do so much of the sacrificing. Restrict your ambition to enlarge the institution and to accumulate responsibilities. Let some of the means flowing into the sanitarium be given to the institutions needing help. This is certainly right. It is in accordance with God's will and way, and it will bring the blessing of God upon the sanitarium. -143- I wish to say particularly to the board of directors: “Remember that the workers should be paid according to their faithfulness. God requires us to deal with one another in the strictest faithfulness. Some of you are overburdened with cares and responsibilities, and I have been instructed that there is danger of your becoming selfish and wronging those whom you employ.” Each business transaction, whether it has to do with a worker occupying a position of responsibility or with the lowliest worker connected with the sanitarium, should be such as God can approve. Walk in the light while you have the light, lest darkness come upon you. It would be far better to expend less in buildings and give your workers wages that are in accordance with the value of their work, exercising toward them mercy and justice. From the light that the Lord has been pleased to give me, I know that He is not pleased with many things which have taken place in reference to the workers. God has not laid every particular open to me, but warnings have come that in many things decided reformation is needed. I have been shown that there is need of fathers and mothers in Israel being united with the institution. Devoted men and women should be employed, who, because they are not continually pressed with cares and responsibilities, can look after the spiritual interests of the employees. It is necessary that such men and women should be constantly at work in missionary lines in this large institution. Not half is being done that should be done in this respect. It should be the part of these men and women to labor for the employees in spiritual lines, giving them instruction that will teach them how to win souls, showing them that this is to be done, not by much talking, but by a consistent, Christlike life. The workers are exposed to worldly influences; but instead of being molded by these influences, they should be consecrated missionaries, controlled by an influence that elevates and refines. Thus they will learn how to meet unbelievers and how to exert an influence that will win them to Christ. -144- Extract from a letter written in 1895 from Cooranbong, New South Wales.—God has a work for every believer who labors in the sanitarium. Every nurse is to be a channel of blessing, receiving light from above and letting it shine forth to others. The workers are not to conform to fashionable display of those who come to the sanitarium for treatment, but are to consecrate themselves to God. The atmosphere that surrounds their souls is to be a savor of life unto life. Temptations will beset them on every side, but let them ask God for His presence and guidance. The Lord said to Moses: “Certainly I will be with thee;” and to every faithful, consecrated worker the same assurance is given. -145- Chapter 23—Go Forth Into Many Places Cooranbong, N. S. W., July 15, 1895 To a Physician in Battle Creek— My Dear Brother, I received your letters yesterday and read them with deep interest. I am always glad to hear from you concerning your family and the institution in which you are bearing responsibilities of no ordinary character. Your only safety is in obeying the word of the Lord, in walking in the light of His countenance. The enemy is continually seeking to devise methods by which he may steal a march upon us, and we need to pay strict heed to the cautions given by God. If those who in the past have been standard-bearers in the work of God had walked in the lines that He has marked out, they would better have honored Him and would have had increased usefulness. Some whose voices are now silent in death might have lived to warn, entreat, and advise. If those who in past years had been entrusted with large responsibilities had heeded the warnings and entreaties of the Spirit of God, they would now be walking before Him in strength and efficiency. When men educate others to rely on them and trust in them, when, by pen or voice, they dictate to others as to what they should do, they are teaching others to make flesh their arm, to give glory to human beings rather than to God. We are safe only as we exalt Christ, speaking in praise of His excellence. Isaiah says: “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon His kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.” Isaiah 9:6, 7. -146- There is danger that men will receive the counsel of men, when by so doing they will discard the counsel of God. Oh, what lessons all must learn before they will understand that God seeth not as man seeth. The Lord says: “My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways.... For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8, 9. Unless there is a decided reformation among the people of God, He will turn His face from them. My brother, there is need of constant watchfulness, lest, in Battle Creek, building shall be piled upon building and advantage heaped upon advantage. The means thus expended will testify against us. You should put wise plans into operation and scatter the influence that is centering in Battle Creek, diffusing the light that God has given you. Blessed are they that sow beside all waters. The more there is invested in Battle Creek, the greater will be the demand for additional investment; but this is not in the order of God, and before a very long period of time shall pass, the mistake of centering interests in Battle Creek will be made evident. In adding building to building in Battle Creek, we are encouraging neglect of other fields. Superabundant advantages there mean destitution elsewhere. Other parts of the vineyard are robbed of the means they should have. Means should be invested elsewhere in winning souls to the truth and in providing houses of worship for them. God has pointed out the fact that it is the duty of those in Battle Creek to help His institutions in other places. As a wise steward of means you should scatter your forces, using the power of your influence to help those in darkness to know God as He is. -147- The Need of Broader Plans How many towns and cities there are that are utterly neglected. Our people are injuring themselves by crowding into one place. When trees in a nursery are crowded thickly together, they cannot grow healthfully and sturdily. Transplant trees from your thickly planted nursery. God is not glorified in the centering of so many advantages in one place. Give room; put your plants in many places, where one will not lean for support upon another. Give them room to grow. This the Lord demands of you. The means expended in enlarging your advantages in Battle Creek, which are already overgrown and have passed reasonable limits, should be used in establishing missionary stations elsewhere. You should broaden your plans and widen the field of your operations. You should send wise men into the cities and towns that have not yet heard the gospel message. Pick out the best men you can possibly spare, and give them opportunity to become caretakers and burden bearers. Let them have opportunity to develop the talents that in the past have lain idle. Place them where they can use their God-given abilities in calling sinners to repentance. Let men who make it manifest that they love God have a chance to do something for Him. Let men learn to pray earnestly, and let them make their prayers short and right to the point. Let them learn to speak of the world's Redeemer and to lift up the Man of Calvary higher and still higher. All the preaching in the world will not make men feel deeply the need of the perishing souls around them. Nothing will so arouse in men and women a self-sacrificing zeal as to send them forth into new fields to work for those in darkness. Prepare workers to go out into the highways and hedges. Do not call men and women to the great center, encouraging them to leave churches that need their aid. Men must learn to bear responsibilities. Not one in a hundred among us is doing anything beyond engaging in common, worldly enterprises. We are not half awake to the worth of the souls for whom Christ died. -148- We need wise nurserymen, who will transplant trees to different localities and give them advantages that will enable them to grow. It is the positive duty of God's people to go into the regions beyond. Let forces be set at work to clear new ground, to establish new centers of influence wherever an opening can be found. Rally workers who possess true missionary zeal, and let them go forth to diffuse light and knowledge far and near. Let them take the living principles of health reform into the communities that to a large degree are ignorant of these principles. Let classes be formed, and instruction be given regarding the treatment of disease. It is a fact that through the influence of the sanitarium the truth of heaven has come to the notice of thousands. Yet there is a work to be done that has been neglected. Money has been expended in enlarging facilities in Battle Creek, when the Lord desires the leaven to be introduced into the mass of meal, that the whole may be leavened. Instead of building after building being added to the sanitarium, there should be at this time many institutions fully equipped and in working order in other places. There are men who have been long connected with the sanitarium who will always be shadows of someone else, if they are retained there, when, if they were permitted to rely upon their own judgment, they would become deep, self-reliant thinkers, capable of giving wise counsel. Let these men have a chance to learn to bear responsibilities in the strength of God. Thus they will gain an experience that will enable them to impart the truth to others.

I recently took part in a podcast about God and the pandemic. Afterwards, an elderly church member sent me a question. “I've prayed for God to protect me from COVID”, he explained “So if I take the vaccine, doesn't that mean I don't really trust in God?” I don't want to dismiss that church member's concerns. You see, I too trust in God. I am a scientist and a physician -- but 45 years ago, as a medical student confronted with suffering and death, I couldn't find answers from science about the meaning and purpose of life. After a two-year struggle, I became a follower of Jesus. I've spent my entire scientific career searching out answers to how life works and how to prevent and treat disease. It may surprise you, but I've never encountered a situation where my scientific and spiritual worldviews are in conflict – in fact, I find them to be remarkably harmonious. As the Director of the National Institutes of Health, I've seen all of the tools of science brought to bear on this the worst pandemic in more than a century. With many of my colleagues I've worked 100 hours a week - desperate to alleviate the terrible suffering and death we have seen across the globe. I have also prayed for answers. And when, just over a year ago, the rigorous clinical trials to test the vaccines revealed an astounding 95% protection against infection, I confess that I cried – and then I gave thanks to God. That scientific result was built on decades of research and an intense effort of scientists in every sector to work together – but it was also an answer to prayer. For me as a Christian, that is often how God answers prayer – by working through human endeavor. Does that make those answers any less wondrous? I don't think so. For me Science is a way of understanding God's creation. The laboratory is not so different from the cathedral. So, to the earnest church member I say – your prayers have been answered. God has given you a gift in the vaccine. But you have to open the gift. Give thanks -- and then roll up your sleeve. Blessings for the New Year, as we sing “We'll take a cup of kindness yet.” Yes, let it be a year of kindness, gentleness, and a determination to seek the truth in all things.
Reading Exodus 3:16-22 (NLT) ~ Scripture reading followed by discussion. God's call is exciting and something to be thankful but creates the opportunity to respond if faith and trust in God, or by becoming overwhelmed. It is not in our power or ability to share the good news in a way to convince someone, it is God at work in their lives. God's patience with Moses, versus the idea that God is an angry God.
Scripture Reading: Psalm 90:1-17 Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Psalm 90:1 In our congregation it is a tradition to sing “O God, Our Help in Ages Past” during our New Year's Day worship service. Some other churches like to sing this song as they worship on the last day of the closing year. This song paraphrases Psalm 90. Even though Psalm 90 can be considered a song of lament, “O God, Our Help in Ages Past” summarizes the content of this psalm in an uplifting way. As we end this year, we reflect on the fact that God has been “our help in ages past” as well as “our hope for years to come.” When we look back on the year we have just gone through, not one of us can say we knew it would turn out the way it did. We cannot see into the future. Yet God has been our help, and he has been our strength. God has “been our dwelling place through all generations.” So whenever we face uncertainty, we can trust that, with God, we can find courage and strength. God has made all things, and “a thousand ages in [his] sight are like an evening gone.” Yet the Lord our God will always continue to be faithful. In the final stanza of the song, we profess our trust in God. We sing, “Still be our guard while troubles last, and our eternal home!” We have confidence to face the future because our hope for eternal life is found in God our Savior. Dear God, thank you for being with us through this past year. We trust that we can always make our dwelling with you. Through Christ we pray. Amen.
The year of 2021 is almost over and Jaki Draper, Toni Howard and SB Favor discuss their experiences of 2021. The episode is encouraging with a reminder not to quit. We must continue to project what is good.
December 29 2021 Wednesday Week 28 In Him Scripture Study God's Peace Passes All Understanding Ephesians 1:15-23 NLT 'Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God's people everywhere, I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance. I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God's power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God's right hand in the heavenly realms. Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.' Ephesians 3:14-21 NLT 'When I think of all this, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father, the Creator of everything in heaven and on earth. I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God's people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.'

I love the chorus I learned as a young man in church. Nothing is impossible when you put your trust in God; Nothing is impossible when you're trusting in His Word. Hearken to the voice of God to thee: "Is there anything too hard for Me?" Then put your trust in God alone and rest upon His Word-- For everything, O everything, Yes, everything is possible with God!
Continuing on from the last episode… My company “Nitro Sales” was collapsing and I'm in the middle of a divorce. The judge ordered me to go to a “Vocational Evaluator” picked by the “enemy”. And I'm panicked because how can this go good? I'm f*cked! But I'm inspired by god with inspiration. And somehow there's a miracle in all this. But what does that have to do with a potential new podcast name?

With this podcast and the sister YouTube channel? And you know, the universe was like, be patient, it'll come together. Because I'm like, I want the answer now! It's I'm feeling my frustration and thinking, "I'll quit! I'm gonna go teach yoga." I never got quite that extreme, but you get it, you get to a sometimes emotional upheaval can feel very extreme. And then on the last episode, I was talking about how I was going through the divorce. And Nitro Sales was a company that I'd started and what's going sideways. And my two long term assistants, Mary and Carrie, both were leaving for one for another state, one for different opportunity with their husband. Financially collapsing, relationships collapsing, it was a dark time. And so I've got Nitro Sales, and it's lead gen (lead generation). And sales like... the... the idea was, hey, I'll help you with your lead gen and we'll explode your sales. Hence the Nitro. "Nitro Sales".Mischa Zvegintzov 01:34And I go to the judge. No, not the Judge. I go. So I'm in the middle of a divorce. And they're trying to figure out... "they", the judges and the lawyers are trying to figure out how much I get to pay the boys mom, every month. And I get ordered to go see a vocational evaluator. I think I had to get a vocational evaluation. I think that is what you call it. Because everything was collapsing. And the judges n the lawyers are like, "well, that's great that you have zero income and your debts, your obligations are more dramatically more than your income. And your sales...your savings are evaporating." Literally, that's what was happening. It was an insane, brutal time. Everything I built was just collapsing. And they said, "that's great, you still get to pay alimony and child support". And you have value on the open market in the loan business. Like that's great, did you have a failing business, but you could go do home loans, because you are adept at that and had success. So go see this vocational evaluator. And we're going to assign an income number to you. So that way we can figure out how much you get to pay an alimony and child support.Mischa Zvegintzov 03:17And I just want to say, I'm telling you the story with love. Without resentment. I get both sides of the coin. I got to be the the husband that you know, the relationship ended and Dawn, God bless her, the boys mom was a stay at home mom and things needed to be worked out. And it's a scary time to be the mom coming out of a divorce when you've been stay at homing for at least 10 or 12 years or whatever it was at the time. Maybe it was 10 years, nine years, eight years, somewhere in there. But when you've got no career. You've got your skill set is raising kids. Like that's a scary time for the mom. And I get it.Mischa Zvegintzov 04:08And so by the grace of God, I'm going through all this and I've got as about as an open mind as you can have and I'm trying to be supportive. But at the same time I'm like, "Oh no, this is BS". Like I've got to see a vocational evaluator and my business is collapsing. And you're gonna order me to pay money. Like "what?!" And the other side, Dawns, side got to pick the vocational evaluator. I was like wait a minute, the cards the deck seems to be stacked against me.Mischa Zvegintzov 04:50And, you know, through this time I was gifted truly by God, my higher power, the capital S self, creative intelligence, the Universe, the Infinite Intelligence, whatever you want. It was like meesh "compassion, tolerance, patience". "Like you got to see the other person's viewpoint". "Kids are number one". All this stuff like forgiveness, forgiveness, trust, trust. And so I was like, Alright, I got to go see this vocational evaluator. And I was like, "How can I be of service? What can I bring to the table?" Like, "God helped me here, I need help. How can I go in with an open mind?" "How can I go in to see the vocational evaluator who looks to be the enemy with an open mind."Mischa Zvegintzov 05:53It was a heavy time, my friends. So I go in with an open mind. The vocational evaluator says, "Hey, here's the thing". "We're going to assign this number to you. Because it's a reasonable number of somebody working 40 hours a week as a loan officer in the new market." "Not somebody working 80 hours a week, at the peak of the market, so you do not need to worry about that."Mischa Zvegintzov 06:24And I was like, Okay. And she also said, if you would like to, you know, make this better for yourself with the judge. And put as good a bow on this as possible, I recommend you go out there, and start talking to your to two of your loan contacts a day. And document it. So you can show the judge that you're trying. You're trying to get your business back on track, as well as you're putting yourself out there in the workforce.Mischa Zvegintzov 07:10"Yes, yes, Miss vocational evaluator."Mischa Zvegintzov 07:14And I came out of that meeting or meetings, whatever it was, I think it was actually honestly just one meeting and this lady was so sweet. And she's like, I'm not the enemy. And I'm truly here to help you. And so much of the fear and tention of that time melted away. Truly. And I was like, Oh my gosh, like this is going to be okay. The financial collapse will end. You'll get back on track. And it's not the world against you. And so my job at that point was was shutting down Nitro Sales. You know, ending all the financial obligations gracefully. Because my expenditures were very large and the income had collapsed. And at the same time document, you know, communications with my contacts in the loan business. Mischa Zvegintzov 08:18And of course, immediately I got offered great job opportunities in the loan business and it was my entry back into the loan business. I've been trying to get out and start my own business. You know, that was the dream. Thank you so much for listening to this... And so I shut down Nitro Sales and I re entered the loan business... 2010 Perhaps. Somewhere in there...2009. I don't know. Somewhere in there. But back into the loan business and everything stabilized.Mischa Zvegintzov 09:04I'm sorry, I got distracted and I'm thinking where how to button up this episode, but not the series and I think I'm going to end here and go to a part three and bring it all together. Part three the new... the new branding... idea three of the of the podcast and its sister YouTube channel. the rebrand.Mischa Zvegintzov 09:31And yes... The main lesson from this episode. Talk to your source, your god, your higher power. Ask to be of service. Keep an open mind. Stay tenacious. Try to help. Trust in God that it will work out. Alright. Enough. Listen to part three.
Aloha and welcome to the Home Sweet Homemaking podcast, my name is Uilani Kumuhone and I will be your forever host for the show. As a full-time homemaker and a mother to 5 young children, I found this job isn't only hard, but also necessary. I hope that this podcast encourages and inspires you in your homemaking role; remember this is exactly where God wants you to be so if you are ready join me and let us talk about all things homemaking it's going to be great so let's go! Today I wanted to do some brief introductions, nothing special just talking stories and getting a few things out of the way before we jump into our very first full-blown episode. which by the way is on JANUARY 4, 2022! I have been a full-time homemaker since 2013 when I had my oldest son. It wasn't an ideal situation at all, but like most parenthood startups we are all sort of pushed into a position of a parent and then a homemaker as well. I was 21 just graduated college and living with. my parents. So you can imagine it was a unique situation as far as homemaking went because it wasn't fully my own home, but it really doesn't have to be for it to be a place you call home. I understand how sometimes we can get discouraged in our homemaking role especially how the world around us runs and I know sometimes there is the pressure of feeling like we need to do more than what we are doing, but I want us to feel confident in this role that God has called us to, that's right called us. We as homemakers are called to this role and even though it's tough at times to feel that way confidently or see it when we trust in God to guide our life we cannot go wrong. God doesn't make mistakes and he definitely isn't starting with us. God knew exactly what he was doing when he created homemakers and he knows how important of a role we hold in the world so let's be confident in our role girl. I hope that you've heard exactly what you needed to in this introductory episode. I am so excited to fully kick off our brand new podcast and just the new journey that God has all of us on. This podcast is a part of that journey and I am so excited for us all!! Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to tune in, I hope to see you at the season premiere of Home Sweet Homemaking! Until next time, bye!
This message encourages us to put all our trust in God, if we want peace in our lives. Make trusting God a habit. It should be part of our lives as a Christian to put all our trust in the Lord. If worrying and anxiety is what your facing often, it's not working. Instead, put your trust in the Lord 100%. You'll be glad you did. Peace and rest will soon come with many blessings.

Jeremiah had one of the toughest jobs of all the Old Testament prophets. He oversaw God's judgment on Judah and Jerusalem. God warned the people over and over again to turn away from worthless idols and false gods and trust in Him and Him ONLY. But, no, the people went their own way and they suffered the consequences. Israel, a nation born out of bondage in Egypt was sent to bondage in another foreign land — Babylon. Let's dig in… Keep reading in my blog where there are links to dig deeper and watch the special music video at the bottom…. If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then… Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit. Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly… “Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins and rose from the dead. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus' name, Amen.” Or visit: https://giselleaguiar.com/how-to-invite-jesus-into-your-heart/ FREE Ebook!

I am honored to introduce you to a guy that I have called my friend for several years now. He comes from a great family. His father and mother are the rocks of his support system. But he has made the leaps of faith into God's loving arms and has been an example to many of us on how to truly trust in God's providence. Joining me along the way is the director of marketing for TAN books Noah Vertefeuille. To find out more information on TAN books please visit www.tanbooks.com

When I was growing up, my family prayed for miracles.We received assistance from the government and charitable donations from our church, and most years, there wasn't money for groceries… let alone Christmas gifts. *We used to joke that we weren't poor… we were “po” because we couldn't even afford the “or” at the end of the word!*Because of our financial situation, I learned to trust in God and pray for miracles, even if it seemed impossible….and this is something I still practice today.This episode is a short, unprofessional, and unplanned recording to remind you that hoping for a miracle isn't a bad thing…. It just might be the thing that keeps you going through the hard times.Need a little pick-me-up this holiday season? Click play now.

Andre Wadsworth was selected third overall in the 1998 NFL Draft after a stellar college career at Florida State. During his college career with the Seminoles, Wadsworth was named to the First or Second-Team All ACC all four years. In 1997, he finished his season with 16 sacks and was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year. Regarded as the top prospect in the 1998 NFL Draft, Wadsworth was selected third to the Arizona Cardinals behind Peyton Manning and Ryan Leaf. His rookie year, he helped the Cardinals reach the second round of the playoffs. Injuries would take a toll on Wadsworth, who has had multiple knee surgeries that ultimately would end his career in 2007. Currently, he is the Senior Executive Pastor and founder of IMPACT CHURCH in Scottsdale, Arizona. Today on the podcast, we talk to Andre about his current role as a pastor, his desire to disciple and help people grow in their faith, the lessons he learned from playing for Florida State legendary coach Bobby Bowden, and why he continues to trust in God during a difficult season of life. --- Looking for a holiday gift idea?

On In The Market with Janet Parshall we were reminded that the Great Commission is still great – but we just don’t feel ready to share the Good News. We learned how to start ‘Jesus Conversations’ in a fresh and winsome way. Our favorite Scottish apologist joined us to share his perspective on a wide variety of news stories – from Australian COVID internment camps to a very woke Christmas commercial in Norway. We took a step back in time and explained how the Bible was put together, what inspiration means and why we can put our full faith and trust in God’s word. As we approach Christmas, we were reminded of all the Old Testament prophecies about the coming Messiah and how each was fulfilled. We discovered that if those prophecies were right and true then all the prophecies about the End Times can be trusted as well. Join us today to hear analysis and insight on some of the other stories making headlines – all from a biblical perspective.
