Jason T. Wiser19,072*Storytelling for Business Building with Chris Brogan* There’s a lot of talk lately about storytelling in business and for good reason. Stories help people to understand and relate to your business journey. Where did you get the idea? What was the first thing you did when you realized that you had a good idea? what worked? what was your biggest mistake?  This program is produced by http://ontracktips.com/storytelling-business-building-chris-brogan/ It’s the answers to these questions that interviewers love to ask because viewers want to experience the journey of the successful business owner. They want to imagine themselves walking this path and living this dream. But aside from telling your rise to the top story, what other stories can we tell as business owners? what other stories do people want to hear? That’s why I have invited @118320665823821681206  to “Get on Track, Stay on Track” because Chris is passionate about small business and he understands the value of telling story for branding, for marketing, for business. *Chris is the Author of* "Trust Agents", "Google+ for Business" "The Impact Equation" "Social Media 101" and the soon to be released "The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth" http://jtw.bz/ChrisBr (affiliate link) Some of the questions I’m going to be asking Chris are: ⇒ Other than your rise to the top story, what day to day stories can we tell in marketing? ⇒ What are some of the best examples of companies that are using storytelling in business today? ⇒ How much of your personal life do you share in your business story? If this interests you, start asking questions now AND Invite 2 friends! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Did you click "Yes" on the event invite? Catch past interviews  http://ontracktips.com and *look for the big RED button.* Upcoming Guests: ⇒ Andrea Vahl "How to Find clients" ⇒ Phyllis Khare "Time Management for Small Business Owners" Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube -http://jtw.bz/YouTubeOTT  Listen to our Podcast in iTunes http://jtw.bz/iTunesOTT  Join us on Twitter using the hashtag   #OnTrackTips   ========================================­============== If you like this series, Please Share this with 2 friends.

Why Bilbo Baggins?

In one of my favorite scenes from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Galadriel turns to Gandalf and asks “Why the halfling?”

Gandalf turns to face the camera and replies: Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage.

Are you living in God's forgiveness?
Narrative by Pastor Greg Laurie

"Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." -John 8:36

Sometimes people have a hard time believing they have been forgiven by God. They walk around with guilt and feel almost as though they will be able to pay some kind of penance by continuing to beat themselves up over their sins. But they need to accept the forgiveness that Christ has given to them and start behaving like a forgiven person, realizing that "if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed" (John 8:36).

In Matthew 9 we find the story of a paralyzed man who was carried by his friends into the presence of Jesus. When Jesus saw the faith of his friends, he said to the man, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you" (verse 2). This is the first time we see... more »

Are you living in God's forgiveness?
Narrative by Pastor Greg Laurie

"Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." -John 8:36

Sometimes people have a hard time believing they have been forgiven by God. They walk around with guilt and feel almost as though they will be able to pay some kind of penance by continuing to beat themselves up over their sins. But they need to accept the forgiveness that Christ has given to them and start behaving like a forgiven person, realizing that "if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed" (John 8:36).

In Matthew 9 we find the story of a paralyzed man who was carried by his friends into the presence of Jesus. When Jesus saw the faith of his friends, he said to the man, "Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you" (verse 2). This is the first time we see Jesus' use of the phrase, "Be of good cheer," and He used it when he was assuring a man that his sins were forgiven.

Now, it doesn't seem like they brought him to Jesus to have his sins forgiven; it seems like they brought him to be healed. So Jesus went on to say, "For which is easier, to say, 'Your sins are forgiven you,' or to say, 'Arise and walk'? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins"—then He said to the paralytic, "Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house" (verses 5–6). And the man did.

Jesus forgave this man of his sins, and in this case, God's forgiveness brought courage. God does His part, and then we must do ours. You see, God gives His forgiveness to us, and we must accept that forgiveness.

Are you living in God's forgiveness? Or, are you living in guilt because you are unwilling to accept it?

Why Planning And Providing Are So Important

At week eight of our Stepping Up series with our church men’s group we dug into the importance of planning and providing. Something that not too many men think about or do.

We are told that a man is to provide for his family, right? The challenge facing most men today is that they don’t even know what authentic manhood looks like because their fathers didn’t model it out for them. I know because I was lost in this area. My father was not that compass for me growing up and a boy without a “compass” is like an explorer without a map!

Do you know what it means to provide for your family? Do you have a plan for your family?

Some do, but many don’t. Let’s dive into planning and providing — and why it’s so important.

It Will Be Messy
By John Eldredge 

The family is…like a little kingdom, and, like most other little kingdoms, is generally in a state of something resembling anarchy.

Chesterton could have been talking about a little fellowship (our true family, because it is the Family of God). It is a royal mess. I will not whitewash this. It is disruptive. Going to church with hundreds of other people to sit and hear a sermon doesn't ask much of you. It certainly will never expose you. That's why most folks prefer it. Because community will. It will reveal where you have yet to become holy, right at the very moment you are so keenly aware of how they have yet to become holy. It will bring you close and you will be seen and you will be known and therein lies the power and therein lies the danger. Aren't there moments when all those little companies, in all those stories,ha... more »

Aren't there moments when all those little companies, in all those stories, hang by a thread? Galadriel says to Frodo, "Your quest stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and it will fail, to the ruin of all. Yet hope remains while the Company is true."

We've experienced incredible disappointments in our fellowship. We have, every last one of us, hurt one another. Sometimes deeply...It's moments like that which usually toll the beginning of the end for most attempts at community.

Without Question
By Pastor Greg Laurie 

An angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, "Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza." —Acts 8:26

Philip was used to leading others to Jesus because he was obedient. How easily Philip could have argued with the angel who gave him these instructions from the Lord: "Arise and go toward the south." But why? Philip had been preaching in the city of Samaria, and revival was breaking out. And now God was sending him alone into the desert?

It helps to know a little about the geography, the lay of the land. The angel was telling him to travel about eighty miles from where he was. If you were to make the trip today, you would hop in your car and be there in a little over an hour. But Philip had to walk. And let me clue you in: eighty miles is quite a hike.

It helps to know a little about the geography, the lay of the land. The angel was telling him to travel about eighty miles from where he was. If you were to make the trip today, you would hop in your car and be there in a little over an hour. But Philip had to walk. And let me clue you in: eighty miles is quite a hike. It would have taken days for him to reach his destination—with no 7-Elevens or McDonald's along the way.

Note that the Lord didn't say, "There are people waiting to hear the gospel." He simply said, "Go to the desert."

How easily Philip could have said, "Excuse me, but the apostles and the other believers in Jerusalem are at least thirty miles closer. Couldn't You call one of them? I'm busy here. I'm not the only Christian around. Couldn't You call on someone else?" Yet we don't read of Philip saying anything like that.

Sometimes God will tell us to do things that may not make sense at the moment. But who are we to question the wisdom of God? That is why Philip was a man whom God could call on. Philip recognized that God knew exactly what He was doing.

Do you recognize that too?

7 X 70

Your parents weren't perfect and I meet so many adult men and women who hold a life numbing unforgiveness towards their parents. I was a member of that "not-going-to-forgive-you" gang.

Our parents often made it very difficult to love them growing up. They were not physically divorced, but it really felt like they were emotionally divorced. As kids growing up they had a front row seat to the breaking of our hearts…and they didn't even know it.

"I remember running down the hallway. Playing hide and seek. I didn't know that I was searching for someone to notice me. I felt alone and undiscovered and old enough to understand, just when I'm supposed to be learning to love you let me doubt again" -Chris August Lyrics (7x70)

It’s tough enough to navigate life on a good day and many of us choose to carry an overstuffed sack of "unforgiveness." God knows the pain and the price we pay for not forgiving and He wants to teach us what it means to forgive…to really forgive. 

Although we had tough and difficult days as a family, we had some good ones too. On my road to healing, I can now thank God so much that He used these times as my classroom to teach me how to better love and to forgive in every aspect of my life. "There's healing in this house tonight," praise God, because my heart has been changed and I have been able to let go of all the bitterness and unforgiveness. My mom has gone home to be with the Lord and yeah my dad and I occasionally wrestle with stuff, but I can now say that am proud to be their son.

Now it’s your turn! You know who I'm talking to because this is pulling at your heartstrings and you’re doing everything in your power to hold back that tear from running down your check. Remember, when asked how many times we should forgive, Jesus said 7 x 70. Start with 1...and 2, 3 and 4 times comes easier.

There is healing in the air tonight and it's time for you to let go of all of that unforgiveness towards your parents. Not sure where to start? No worries, here ere are 5 things you need to know about forgiveness: http://heartstn.co/Vj30GH

REMEMBER: Forgiveness says, "It was wrong, it mattered, and I release you!"

Don’t wait another day, step onto the road of forgiveness and forgive them today!

Two Simple Tests To Know If You Have a Servant Heart
By Patrick Morley

The first and chief test of whether or not we are a servant is if we're willing to be treated like one. Jesus put it like this: “So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty’” (Luke 17:10).

The second test is the question we ask ourselves when confronted with a decision or opportunity. A servant isn't asking, "What do I want?" Rather, a servant is asking, "What does the Master need?"

Getting this right is only possible by making a full, total, complete surrender of our lives to the Lordship of Jesus, and to do so every day.

"Lord, I surrender. I want to be willing to be treated like a servant. Put in my heart the desire to go wherever you would go, to do whateveryou wou... more »

"Lord, I surrender. I want to be willing to be treated like a servant. Put in my heart the desire to go wherever you would go, to do whatever you would do. Not from guilt or to gain merit or to win my freedom or your approval, but as a response to your great love for me. Today I will not ask, 'What do I want?' Instead, I ask, 'What does the Master need?' In the name of Jesus, amen."

Do you have a servants heart?

Something Up His Sleeve
By John Eldredge

The dilemma of the Story is this: we don't know if we want to be rescued. We are so enamored with our small stories and our false gods, we are so bound up in our addictions and our self-centeredness and take-it-for-granted unbelief that we don't even know how to cry out for help. And the Evil One has no intention of letting his captives walk away scot-free. He seduces us, deceives us, assaults us—whatever it takes to keep us in darkness.

Like a woman bound to an affair from which she cannot get free, like a man so corrupted he no longer knows his own name, the human race is captive in the worst way possible—we are captives of the heart.

Their hearts are always going astray. (Hebrews 3:10)

God is filled with the jealousy of a wounded lover. He has been betrayed time and again.

Their hearts are always going astray. (Hebrews 3:10)

God is filled with the jealousy of a wounded lover. He has been betrayed time and again.

The challenge God faces is rescuing a people who have no idea how captive they are; no real idea how desperate they are. We know we long for Eden, but we hesitate to give ourselves back to God in abandoned trust. We are captivated by the lies of our Enemy.

But God has something up his sleeve.

Pray about It
By Pastor Greg Laurie

You lust and do not have. You murder and covet and cannot obtain. You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. —James 4:2

Have you ever stopped and thought that maybe there are things in your life that haven't happened because you have simply failed to ask God for them?

Maybe you are ill right now and have never actually prayed about it. Maybe you've never said something like, "You know, Lord, I have never asked You to heal me. Maybe I thought that if You wanted to heal me, You would just go ahead and do it. But I'm asking You to heal me." It just may be that you do not have because you do not ask.

Maybe I thought that if You wanted to heal me, You would just go ahead and do it. But I'm asking You to heal me." It just may be that you do not have because you do not ask.

Maybe you have a financial need and have exhausted every resource to meet it. Has it dawned on you that you could actually pray about it? The Bible says, "And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19). Perhaps you do not have because you do not ask.

Maybe your marriage is starting to unravel, and you don't know what to do. You have tried everything. You have talked to everyone. But have you actually prayed about your marriage and asked God to intervene? It might be that you do not have because you do not ask.

We should pray because prayer is God's appointed way for us to obtain things from Him. That is not the only purpose of prayer, but to fail to see this is to miss a lot. The Bible is very clear in pointing out that we "do not have because [we] do not ask" (James 4:2).

That doesn't mean that God always will answer our prayers the way we pray them. But it does mean that many times He will. So when you have a need, the first thing you ought to do is to pray about it.

I didn't have much tech at all growing up. In fact I spent most of my time outside (image that) building tree forts, riding my big wheel, fishing and stuff that boys did in those days.

...and playing cowboys and indians (yeah, I said it).  I remember getting a complete cowboy set with belt, holsters and a couple of fake colt pistols...and a boat load of caps.

3 Universal Desires Of Men Revealed by King Arthur

Some of my favorite movies include Braveheart, Gladiator, 300, Lord Of The Rings, Last Of The Mohicans and Lone Survivor. Another honorable mention to this list is the 2004 remake of King Arthur.

Here is a short summary shared by Claudio Carval. In 400 AD, the Roman Empire extends to Britain and the Romans become impressed with the fight skills of the warrior Sarmatian people, which are spared, but have to send their sons to serve Rome in the cavalry for fifteen years. Only after these services, these knights are free to return home. King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table have their last mission before achieving their freedom.

I chose this summary because it ends with a powerful word that is not always connected with authentic manhood and that is “freedom”. This theme ebbs and flows all through out history in narratives of the men who fought in the Revolutionary War and the movies mentioned above. Of course there are endless realities and tales of the bravery of men fighting for the cause of freedom, but I want to stay with this for a minute…for the men of today.

Why is this important for the men of today?

To Be a Part of Something Big

[John] You have entered the Warrior Stage of a young man’s life. Young men have been at the center of most of history’s revolutions. Deep in your marrow lies a passion to bring down tyrants, overthrow oppression, and fight for a better world—to be part of something big. And why did God give you such hearts? Isn’t that fascinating—why you and all your peers have a heart to change the world? Was that placed in you simply to be killed? Never! I know older folks love to look down at you over their reading glasses and say something dismissive about “the idealism of youth” and how it’s high time you settle down to real life, but that is not my opinion. I don’t think it’s God’s opinion either. That counsel comes from folks who have killed their heart and soul in order to “get along” in the world. Christianity isall about revolution—is a... more »

I don’t think it’s God’s opinion either. That counsel comes from folks who have killed their heart and soul in order to “get along” in the world. Christianity is all about revolution—is a revolution to its core—and that is why God gives young men and women passion to change the world. God gave you that heart in order that you might discover both the joy of being part of his revolution and your own unique place within it. 

There is a lot of wrong to be set right in the world. Everywhere you look, the planet is bleeding, children are trafficked, slavery is on the rise, and truth itself has all but shattered. This is a time for revolution, and one of the great wonders of Christianity is the idea that you are born into your times, to set your times aright. What could be more exciting? Frederick Buechner believed that, “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” What could be more hopeful?

Seeds and Weeds
By Pastor Greg Laurie 

He who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful. —Matthew 13:22

When Jesus spoke of the seed that is sown among thorns, He was talking about ground that is embedded with weeds. There were over two thousand types of weeds in ancient Israel, weeds that would hinder the growth of a seed. The little seedlings would be in a constant battle with these life-sapping weeds.

The trouble with a weed is that it doesn't have an immediate effect; its impact on the plant is more gradual. This is in contrast to seed sown on rocky soil, which shoots up and then falls away. A seed sown among thorns is harder to identify. A person may say, "I am a Christian," and perhaps you see some changes in his or her life.It... more »

The trouble with a weed is that it doesn't have an immediate effect; its impact on the plant is more gradual. This is in contrast to seed sown on rocky soil, which shoots up and then falls away. A seed sown among thorns is harder to identify. A person may say, "I am a Christian," and perhaps you see some changes in his or her life. It will seem like this person is solid.

A few weeks or months go by, and slowly but surely, something happens. As Jesus said, "The cares of this world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful" (Matthew 13:22). It doesn't happen overnight. This person doesn't abandon his or her faith instantaneously. It's something that takes place over a period of time.

Gradually, material things become more important to them than spiritual things. After a while, movies become more important than church. Parties become more important than prayer. Things on earth become more important than treasures in heaven. And slowly but surely, the weeds choke them out. These people were never truly converted; it just looked like they were. And after a little time has gone by, they just bail out.

So how can we tell who the true converts are? By time. Time will tell—time and the visible results in their lives called spiritual fruit.

The Shocking Truth Of Settling For Less Than God’s Best

Why is it that most of us become spiritually lazy as we accept and embrace a passive existence stumbling through the shadows of life looking for love and acceptance? Have you ever noticed that we actually go out of our way to stay off the rough roads of life? It seems that our primary objectives become securing a peaceful retreat from the world, thinking only about ourselves, and finding a hiding place from the turbulence of life. We all seem to find it so much easier to simply go along with the status quo, which over time actually leads to a life of heart-numbing mediocrity, and we settle for something less than God’s best.

We all seem to find it so much easier to simply go along with the status quo, which over time actually leads to a life of heart-numbing mediocrity, and we settle for something less than God’s best.

Does God share with us in His word some thoughts about this? I think He does. Consider the story of Moses. God heard the cries of the oppressed Israelite slaves, and He enters history to deliver them from the tyranny of Pharaoh and the bondage of Egypt. After the captives have been set free from Egypt, God meets with them in the wilderness to make them His people. They enter into a covenant with God promising to love and to serve Him in response to His gracious acts of deliverance. God then promises them a land in which they could be His people.

God actually hangs out with these people wanting to connect with them in a loving relationship. Can you imagine that? That would be awesome! If that happened to us, we would be convinced! Convinced for life!

Wouldn’t we?

Well, let’s see what happens…

All Men Die; Few Men Ever Really LIVE

The most dangerous man on earth is the man who has reckoned with his own death. All men die; few men ever really live. Sure, you can create a safe life for yourself . . . and end your days in a rest home babbling on about some forgotten misfortune. I'd rather go down swinging. Besides, the less we are trying to "save ourselves," the more effective a warrior we will be. Listen to G. K. Chesterton on courage:

Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die. "He that will lose his life, the same shall save it" is not a piece of mysticism for saints and heroes. It is a piece of everyday advice for sailors or mountaineers.

All Men Die; Few Men Ever Really LIVE

The most dangerous man on earth is the man who has reckoned with his own death. All men die; few men ever really live. Sure, you can create a safe life for yourself . . . and end your days in a rest home babbling on about some forgotten misfortune. I'd rather go down swinging. Besides, the less we are trying to "save ourselves," the more effective a warrior we will be. Listen to G. K. Chesterton on courage:

Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of a readiness to die. "He that will lose his life, the same shall save it" is not a piece of mysticism for saints and heroes. It is a piece of everyday advice for sailors or mountaineers. It might be printed in an Alpine guide or a drill book. The paradox is the whole principle of courage; even of quite earthly or quite brutal courage. A man cut off by the sea may save his life if he will risk it on the precipice. He can only get away from death by continually stepping within an inch of it. A soldier surrounded by enemies, if he is to cut his way out, needs to combine a strong desire for living with a strange carelessness about dying. He must not merely cling to life, for then he will be a coward, and will not escape. He must not merely wait for death, for then he will be a suicide, and will not escape. He must seek his life in a spirit of furious indifference to it; he must desire life like water and yet drink death like wine.

Sometimes We Fall Down

Heartstone is a journey of destiny, a story of a life turned upside-down for the best possible reason. Step into the story and discover what happens when a broken life has a head on collision with a broken world!

What We Know About Leadership Is All Wrong…And Here’s Why

We are in week seven of our ten week Stepping Up series with our church men’s group. This weeks topic was about men ‘engaging with wisdom and grace’ or simply put — leadership. Why is leadership so important? Because most of us men (an women) have no clue what it really is.

When I say the word “leadership”, what does that mean to you?

At work it typically means this…

Being he boss. The perks. Money. Position. Power. Prestige. The applaud. That corner office. No one can tell me what to do. Those diplomas on the wall. Fill in the blank ____.

In the home it typically means this…

My wife must submit. My way or the highway. I’m the king! Going to “that” game is more important than being with your kids. Chasing things that we can give up. Working late.Working harder for that b... more »

My wife must submit. My way or the highway. I’m the king! Going to “that” game is more important than being with your kids. Chasing things that we can give up. Working late. Working harder for that bigger house. My kids need to do what I say, not what I do. Fill in the blank ____.

That’s what the narrative of this world culture would have us believe, isn’t it?

What if I told you that leadership had nothing to do with you and was completely focused on others? What if I told you that it meant that the buck stops with you? What if I told you it meant being out in front leading people in the right direction with wisdom and grace?

Have you ever thought of leadership in that context? In the context of servant leadership?

If you have thought about leadership in that context, great — if not, than that’s ok too because we are going to take it a bit further…buckle up!

Defining good leadership is not an easy thing to do. Yes, there are untold number of books and many self-proclaimed leadership gurus out there that make this attempt, but not many build a foundation on “this” type of true leadership. Do you know what it is?

Refuge
By John Eldredge
 
There’s nothing like refuge when you need it. And we need it. 
 
I think you know by now that this world is filling with darkness. Evil swarms all around us. Sometimes we must resist that evil, or it will overcome us. Other times we do better to take refuge. It’s a manly thing to do. The best warriors know that there’s a time to fight and a time to run for cover.
 
One of the surprising elements that stands out among the remarkable exploits of King David's life, is how often he is described as taking refuge. The man was a fierce warrior, legendary, feared and hunted by his enemies. And not just because of the Goliath episode, though that hurled him into stardom as a teenager. It served as the beginning of a career filled with victories in battle, building the legend: "Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens ofthousands... more »

And yet, despite his indisputable bravery, his skill in combat, and the many stories that built his reputation, the man knows something we would do well to pay attention to: he knows there is a time to take refuge and he isn't a fool to ignore that fact.
 
David left Gath and escaped to the cave of Adullum...
 
David was in the stronghold...

Jesus Bring The Rain

I am learning that wrong assumptions lead to wrong conclusions. Who are we to think that we can take our limited understanding of our life experiences and jump to a conclusion about life in general? When we find ourselves doubting God, we never have all the facts and we don’t know how the story will end. How often have you weathered the storms of life or endured hardships and missed out on the perspective that a greater good has come from it?

Things End, But Memories Last Forever!

Its tough losing the ones we love, isn’t it?

I lost my mom back in 2008 and I continue to thank the Lord for her. I know that she is in an amazing place and I can’t even begin to imagine what her eyes are seeing right now….but yeah, “I miss my mom!” It’s not the same without her.

Have you lost a loved one?

Do you miss them?

How do you remember them?

Hope For The Broken Hearted
Prayer By Debbie Kay

Our Father,

The problems of this world and the storms in our lives can cloud our vision...but when we look above to you... just like an eagle, we can rise above the storm clouds to find peaceful skies with a clear view. We may not be able to physically rise above, or detour from our storms, but there is nothing we can't do mentally, emotionally or spiritually, when our eyes are fixed on you. You tell us we can do all things through Christ. You tell us in your Word, when we wait on you, we will renew our strength...we will mount up with wings like eagles, we will run and not grow weary. Unlike other birds, the eagle keeps looking above...it soars higher and higher, so it can rise above the storms and not be buffeted by the winds and rain ...it can fly in peaceful solitude, unaffected by the dangerous weather below. May we... more »

Hope For The Broken Hearted
Prayer By Debbie Kay

Our Father,

The problems of this world and the storms in our lives can cloud our vision...but when we look above to you... just like an eagle, we can rise above the storm clouds to find peaceful skies with a clear view. We may not be able to physically rise above, or detour from our storms, but there is nothing we can't do mentally, emotionally or spiritually, when our eyes are fixed on you. You tell us we can do all things through Christ. You tell us in your Word, when we wait on you, we will renew our strength...we will mount up with wings like eagles, we will run and not grow weary. Unlike other birds, the eagle keeps looking above...it soars higher and higher, so it can rise above the storms and not be buffeted by the winds and rain ...it can fly in peaceful solitude, unaffected by the dangerous weather below. May we heed your words and fully grasp the examples that you give us to help us see your meaning in scripture. May the visual representation of the eagle remind us that You, the Creator of all, are always seeking ways to help us survive and rise above our storms...nothing is too difficult for you. You always have a plan and a way to help us through our difficulties.

The closer we get to you, things look and seem so different...things become brighter and clearer...we can find peace in the midst of storms...even if our situations or circumstances don't change, just taking a different view and drawing closer to you, enables us to rise above... to be more than a conqueror... to have peace that defies understanding or logic...that allows us to be unafraid...to rise with renewed strength because you have become strong in our weakness. Like Peter walking on the water, things fade from view as we focus on you. Everything in this world and the next, pales in comparison to being in Your presence. It is not hard to envision the truth that, no eye has seen or ear has heard, the things that await those that love you.

Lord, please continue to make a way where there seems to be no way for the challenges that we all face. We ask that you make the rough roads smooth and the crooked places straight. We thank you for all you do for us...for the many blessings you give us each day. We lift your name on high and we praise you. In the name of Jesus, we pray Amen.

May you find renewed strength, energy and hope today!

Why Bilbo Baggins?

In one of my favorite scenes from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Galadriel turns to Gandalf and asks “Why the halfling?”

Gandalf turns to face the camera and replies: Saruman believes it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. I found it is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. Why Bilbo Baggins? Perhaps because I am afraid, and he gives me courage.

Loving Others
By John Eldredge

Love your neighbor, Jesus urged, as you love yourself. (Which, as C. S. Lewis pointed out, is a pretty sick command if we are to hate ourselves.) How you handle people is the second great test of your character.

Again, Jesus is cutting through both all the complexity and our dodging by helping us focus on our motives. It’s pretty hard to be a racist and still love that person. It’s pretty hard to hold bitterness in your heart and still love that person. So here, too, we find a profound rescue. Wherever it is we find ourselves struggling, we begin to choose love; in our hearts we begin to reaffirm our love for this human being. I find myself wanting to get irritated and judge: Jesus, help me love this person. I find myself wanting to envy: Jesus, help me love this person. As we allow love in, it flushes an awful lot of other stuff out.<... more »

“Do not murder,” the Bible says, but what about dismissal? I write people off far too quickly, and it is not good. What difference is there between dismissal and murder, really? Aren’t I basically saying, “I don’t want your existence—not in my orbit, not in my universe. You’re gone, you’re out of here.” James tells us, “Don’t show favorites.” Maybe we don’t have favorites, but we withhold praise, we withhold love, we withhold affection, we parcel it out based on all kinds of other motives than love. Most often it is based on how they are treating me, what they can do for me.

What Makes a Person Wise
By Pastor Greg Laurie

The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple. —Psalm 19:7

As we look at all of the so-called government solutions that are supposed to improve our way of life in America, we see that they really haven't done so at all. That is because changing a person's environment does not change a person's heart.

The Bible doesn't teach that man is basically good, yet he does bad things because of bad influences. Rather, it teaches that man is basically sinful, and he is born sinful. He is not a sinner because he sins; he sins because he is a sinner. Sin comes naturally to all of us. The Bible tells us that. And it also tells us that human beings are capable of very evil things.

As we look at all of the so-called government solutions that are supposed to improve our way of life in America, we see that they really haven't done so at all. That is because changing a person's environment does not change a person's heart.

The Bible doesn't teach that man is basically good, yet he does bad things because of bad influences. Rather, it teaches that man is basically sinful, and he is born sinful. He is not a sinner because he sins; he sins because he is a sinner. Sin comes naturally to all of us. The Bible tells us that. And it also tells us that human beings are capable of very evil things.

Those who believe that we can bring about a utopia on Earth through manmade solutions must be very disappointed by now. Because in spite of all our advances in technology, we still can't change the human heart.

Yet Psalm 19:7 tells us, "The instructions of the LORD are perfect, reviving the soul. The decrees of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple." The Word of God gives us incredible wisdom.

A number of years ago someone asked me, "Well, Greg, what do you do when you come to a verse in the Bible that you don't agree with?"

I said, "Change your opinion, because you are wrong."

I don't think that individual liked my answer all that much. But as Romans 9:20 says, "Who are you, a mere human being, to argue with God? Should the thing that was created say to the one who created it, 'Why have you made me like this?' "

The Word of God transforms us and makes us wise. And if you don't agree with the Bible, then change your opinion—because the Bible is always right.

Stop Judging Christians Who Look Different Than You
By Kelly Givens

Do you ever find yourself making snap judgments about a person based on his “look,” or the way he talks, or the work he does? It’s a pretty easy sin to slip into—but we often don’t see it as sin. We Christians can really get into our “Christian bubbles” and become wary of welcoming people into our communities who don’t look, talk and act just like us. But Jesus set an entirely different example for us to follow.

Preston Sprinkle has written a great trending post over at Relevant discussing this problem. In his post, Being a Christian Doesn’t Always Look Like You Think It Should, Preston challenges us to recognize our preconceived notions of what a “good Christian” should look like, and to stop being so judgmental of those who don’t fit the mold we’ve created.
