Jason T. Wiser18,564*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.

The Ever
Performed By RED

But you saw more
You saw my deepest part
With the light of a thousand stars
You saw them weaken me

And through your eyes
You show me everything
You woke me up inside
Brought back to life
I lost myself
Now I breathe again

4 Characteristics Of Authentic Manhood

We are in our third week of week of the Stepping Up series with our church men’s group. Today we journeyed through defining what is authentic manhood?

Defining authentic manhood is tough, because we don’t see it much in our modern progressive culture. In today’s world view the very idea of manhood has been emasculated and masculinity is under attack. The dominant narrative throws out labels such as clueless, knucklehead, bumbling idiot, fill in the blank ____.

Voddie Baucham, pastor at Grace Family Baptist Church in Spring Texas shares that if you could package up todays definition of “manhood” it would the three B’s: billfold, ball-field and bedroom. Being a man in today’s standards is about how much you make, what do you do (focus on athletes) and how are with the ladies. Wow, does today s culture have itwrong!

Heartstone Journey starts the conversation around authentic manhood with Jesus Christ as the model. Why? Because He is the model!

Unfortunately, most of us men don’t follow this model. We follow the Adam model and here’s why.

Freedom is What You Are Made For
By Stasi Eldredge

Freedom is good; freedom is what you are made for. 

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1 

We have been given the greatest freedom of all: freedom of heart, freedom from sin, a freedom that enables us to live and love as Jesus did. 

We can be free from: 

Bondage 
Sin 
The fear of man 
Shame 
Regret 
Rage 
Disappointment 
Addiction 
Fear 
You name it 

We are not only free from; we are free to! We are free to be trans- formed into the very image of Christ. We are free to love in the face of hatred. Free to become the fullest expression of our unique selves. Free to offer to others the beauty that God planted in us whenhe first drea... more »

Dream 
Be happy 
Be glorious 
Succeed 
Love 
Live 
Forgive 
Not be bound by any chains 

We have this freedom because of what Jesus has done for us! We have been ransomed, paid for, saved, and freed to be who we really are and do what we are meant to do.

A Little Bit of Clarity
By John Edlredge

What exactly are you perfectly clear on these days? How about your life—why have things gone the way they have? Where was God in all that? And do you know what you ought to do next, with a deep, settled confidence that it will work out? Neither do I. Oh, I'd love to wake each morning knowing exactly who I am and where God is taking me. Zeroed in on all my relationships, undaunted in my calling. It's awesome when I do see. But for most of us, life seems more like driving along with a dirty windshield and then turning into the sun. I can sort of make out the shapes ahead, and I think the light is green.

Wouldn't a little bit of clarity go a long way right now?

A Little Bit of Clarity
By John Edlredge

What exactly are you perfectly clear on these days? How about your life—why have things gone the way they have? Where was God in all that? And do you know what you ought to do next, with a deep, settled confidence that it will work out? Neither do I. Oh, I'd love to wake each morning knowing exactly who I am and where God is taking me. Zeroed in on all my relationships, undaunted in my calling. It's awesome when I do see. But for most of us, life seems more like driving along with a dirty windshield and then turning into the sun. I can sort of make out the shapes ahead, and I think the light is green.

Wouldn't a little bit of clarity go a long way right now?

Let's start with why life is so dang hard. You try to lose a little weight, but it never seems to happen. You think of making a shift in your career, maybe even serving God, but you never actually get to it. Perhaps a few of you do make the jump, but it rarely pans out the way you thought. You try to recover something in your marriage, and your spouse looks at you with a glance that says, "Nice try," or "Isn't it a little late for that?" and the thing actually blows up into an argument in front of the kids. Yes, we have our faith. But even there—maybe especially there—it all seems to fall rather short of the promise. There's talk of freedom and abundant life, of peace like a river and joy unspeakable, but we see precious little of it, to be honest.

Don't Say Jesus

That's what they told country musician Brad Paisley and here was his response...

When Brad was told by producers to not mention the name of Jesus, well Brad went out into the Country Music Awards show (which would have been viewed by millions of people) and did exactly that, but in the coolest way possible. He sang the song “This is Country Music”.

“You’re not supposed to say the word Cancer in song. And telling folks that Jesus is the answer… can rub em wrong. It ain’t hip to sing about tractors, trucks, and little towns or momma… yeah that might be true. But this is country music… and we do.”

Awesome!

A Word for the Lonely 
By Pastor Greg Laurie

The Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed. —Deuteronomy 31:8

Years ago, Roy Orbison recorded one of the great rock and roll classics, entitled, "Only the Lonely." A couple of the lines from the song were, "Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight . . . Only the lonely know the heartaches I've been through." That song resonated with a lot of lonely people who knew what it was like to be isolated, rejected, or abandoned.

Maybe you've been abandoned—perhaps it was by your parents, your spouse, or your children. Or maybe you even feel that you've been abandoned by God Himself. There are many people who feel estranged and alienated from God. Even if they have everything they want in life, theymay ... more »

A Word for the Lonely 
By Pastor Greg Laurie

The Lord, He is the One who goes before you. He will be with you, He will not leave you nor forsake you; do not fear nor be dismayed. —Deuteronomy 31:8

Years ago, Roy Orbison recorded one of the great rock and roll classics, entitled, "Only the Lonely." A couple of the lines from the song were, "Only the lonely know the way I feel tonight . . . Only the lonely know the heartaches I've been through." That song resonated with a lot of lonely people who knew what it was like to be isolated, rejected, or abandoned.

Maybe you've been abandoned—perhaps it was by your parents, your spouse, or your children. Or maybe you even feel that you've been abandoned by God Himself. There are many people who feel estranged and alienated from God. Even if they have everything they want in life, they may still face a deep, inner loneliness.

We read in John 5 of a man at the pool of Bethesda who was in a seemingly hopeless situation. He had been abandoned. He was uncared for and unable to help himself. What's more, he'd been in that condition for many long, weary years. He must have been desperately lonely.

In this account, we learn that Jesus changed the man's life forever. It's a story that tells you and me how to change as well. Before Jesus brought transformation and healing into this man's life, however, He first asked him a rather pointed question: "Do you want to be made well?"

What if Jesus asked you the same question? Is there something that needs healing or changing in your life? Do you want to be made well? Maybe it's an addiction to a certain vice or a lifestyle you are trapped in. Maybe it's something you've tried to shake time and time again. Or maybe it's an old hatred or resentment, nursed along over the months and years and becoming more and more toxic with the passing of time.

Jesus turned the course of this man's life around forever, giving him the ability to live a life free from loneliness and the power of sin. We can live that life too—the ability to break old habits and to forgive old hurts and resentments. He has all the transforming power we need, but we must "want to be made well."

Keeping Our Focus
By Pastor Greg Laurie

I don't mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us. —Philippians 3:12–14

Everyone who has run a race knows that you can break your stride by looking over your shoulder to check out how your opponents are doing. Many races have been lost when the leader looked back.

Keeping Our Focus
By Pastor Greg Laurie

Everyone who has run a race knows that you can break your stride by looking over your shoulder to check out how your opponents are doing. Many races have been lost when the leader looked back. When you see that finish line, that is the time to give it everything you've got . . . because sometimes it's mere inches that separate one runner from another. You must stay focused.

This is the idea behind Paul's statement in Philippians 3:13. The apostle was saying, "Don't look back. Don't look behind you."
When God promises, "I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; and I will not remember your sins" (Isaiah 43:25), He isn't predicting a lapse in His memory. God is saying, "I will no longer hold your sin against you, because my Son has paid for it on the cross."

In the same way, then, we need to do what God does: forget our past. Yes, we certainly need to learn from our mistakes and remember some of the bitter lessons we've learned. But we no longer need to be controlled by our past.

That's what Paul meant by "forgetting what is behind." Think about the horrible things Paul had done. He shared responsibility for the death of Stephen and had to carry that in his conscience until his final day. He knew that he was responsible for terrible deeds. But he was able to put his past in the past. And we need to do the same.

What Hope Feels Like
By John Eldredge

We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently. (Rom. 8:22–25)

Amazing. Paul is passing along to us the secret of the sojourning heart. We live in hope, and he says hoping is waiting. And groaning. When was the last time you heard that in a sermon or the title for a new book? You, Too, Can Groan Inwardly While You Wait Eagerly! Everything I’ve seen lately offers a sure-fire way to “get what you want.” How to be a success at work. Howto be a... more »

When was the last time you heard that in a sermon or the title for a new book? You, Too, Can Groan Inwardly While You Wait Eagerly! Everything I’ve seen lately offers a sure-fire way to “get what you want.” How to be a success at work. How to be a success at love. How to succeed in work and love at the same time.

Here are questions to ask yourself to see if you are a pilgrim or an arranger: What am I waiting for? Is there anything I ardently desire that I am doing nothing to secure? The first time I asked myself, I couldn’t name a thing. There were many things I was working on, or fretting over, or had given up wanting. Thankfully, this was some time ago. Things are different now. Now I wonder, What am I still arranging for? I should like to let it go too.

Courage Child, The Story Isn't Over Yet
By Ming-Wai Ng

At some point life cracks.
Innocence stolen.
Dreams dashed.
Ideals shattered.
Hope smothered.

You are thrown off the road, tossed into a ditch, left broken and bleeding in a thorny bramble.

"It's the lies that are whispered in your ear in those dark moments that have the sharpest teeth.

What you believe about the shadowy valley, tints your vision, coloring your world with inky stains. Every bitter word slips down your throat lodging in the deepest grooves of your soul.

Lies that you swallow carve wounds, far deeper than any knife ever could.

'I am ugly.'
'Unlovable.'
'Unforgivable.'
'I will never be enough.'

Despair is such an evil sneering dragon.
But courage, dear heart.

Despair is such an evil sneering dragon.
But courage, dear heart.
The story isn't over yet.

Run back to words that you know with every cell in your being, resound and ring true.

Pick up your sword, slay the dragons and run.

Run, fight, and love, remembering that every pain is being swallowed by joy, every tear is turning upside down into laughter, and beauty is being woven and spun from sooty ashes.

Bend down and see the wild violets in the rubble.

And laugh at the dragon, because you know that he cannot win, for even death itself has begun to work, backwards.

Courage child, the story isn't over yet."

God Starts . . . and Finishes

We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. —Romans 8:28

There are times in our lives as Christians when God will do things or fail to do things that we want Him to do, and it won't make a bit of sense to us. And because we don't see the big picture, we may falsely conclude that God has abandoned us. But we need to trust Him during these times, remembering that Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of our faith. In other words, what God starts, He completes.

Remember that wonderful word from the first chapter of Philippians? "There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears" (Philippians
1:6,M... more »

1:6, MSG).

It seems as I get older, I get distracted and forget things all the time. But what if God forgot about us? What a frightening thought. Imagine being in the midst of a fiery trial as God is watching and waiting for that moment to take us out of it. Then the phone rings, and He's gone for a decade! Thankfully, God never forgets about us. He remains—forever and ever—in full control. He knows exactly what He is doing. He will complete what He has begun.

Sometimes in the middle of that process, we may think the Lord is missing it. But He isn't. We're the ones who are missing it. From our limited human viewpoint, we think of the temporal, but God lives in the eternal. We are thinking of today, but God is planning for tomorrow . . . in fact, He's already been there. We are thinking of comfort, but God is thinking of character. We are thinking of an easy time, but God is thinking of how to make us better people.

So let's trust Him. Whatever our circumstances or hardships, let's believe His promise to His children: all things are working together.

What's the Big Deal About Israel?
By Pastor Greg Laurie

"I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves" —Zechariah 12:2–3

Why is Jerusalem such a big deal in world news? Why aren't we talking about Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, or some other major capital in another part of the world? Why this little city?

I will tell you why.

What's the Big Deal About Israel?

Why is Jerusalem such a big deal in world news? Why aren't we talking about Los Angeles, Paris, Rome, or some other major capital in another part of the world? Why this little city?

I will tell you why. Because God said that in the last days, Jerusalem would play a key role: "I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah. On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves" (Zechariah 12:2–3 NLT).

Scripture also foretold in Ezekiel 37 that the Jews would be regathered in their land, and this prophecy was fulfilled when Israel became a nation on May 14, 1948. After Ezekiel 37 comes Ezekiel 38, which speaks of an attack against Israel by a large nation to the north of the Jewish homeland, accompanied by a number of allies invading Israel from every direction. Scripture emphasizes multiple times that this will happen in the last days. This is still in the future.

In speaking of Israel's enemies, Ezekiel 38:8–11 offers an interesting detail:

"A long time from now you will be called into action. In the distant future you will swoop down on the land of Israel, which will be enjoying peace after recovering from war and after its people have returned from many lands to the mountains of Israel.

"You and all your allies—a vast and awesome army—will roll down on them like a storm and cover the land like a cloud.

"This is what the Sovereign Lord says: 'At that time evil thoughts will come to your mind, and you will devise a wicked scheme. You will say, "Israel is an unprotected land filled with unwalled villages! I will march against her and destroy these people who live in such confidence!"'" (NLT).

These people who live in such confidence? Can you imagine that statement being made right after the Holocaust? Hardly. Can you imagine that statement being made after Israel was established as a nation, or even after the 1967 war? Not really. But today Israel has one of the most powerful and effective military forces on the face of the earth. They are not the largest, but they are known for their military prowess and for their military intelligence. And for quite a long time now, they have had nuclear weaponry. That is why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has stood before the United Nations and made it very clear that, if necessary, Israel will exercise a military option to protect herself. So I think Israel does live within a certain degree of confidence today that they have never known historically.

In an address to the United Nations, Prime Minister Netanyahu said, "Iran's apocalyptic leaders believe that a medieval holy man will reappear in the wake of a devastating Holy War, thereby ensuring that their brand of radical Islam will rule the earth. That's not just what they believe. That's what is actually guiding their policies and their actions."

And that is true. Because in his address to the United Nations, Iran's former leader Ahmadinejad stated, "God Almighty has promised us a man of kindness, a man who loves people and loves absolute justice, a man who is a perfect human being and is named Imam A1-Mahdi, a man who will come in the company of Jesus Christ. Peace be upon him and the righteous."

This Islamic messiah, this 12th Imam, according to their beliefs, will bring about an Islamic kingdom. But also according to their beliefs, the Judeo-Christian civilization must be destroyed first. For this 12th Imam to come, they believe, there must first be chaos.

Could this be what brings about the scenario predicted in the Old Testament book of Ezekiel (see chapters 38 and 39)? No one can say with certainty. But this much we must acknowledge: It certainly could be. We see how things are lining up.

Up to this point, the United States has been a staunch ally of Israel's. And I believe that one of the reasons God has blessed our nation is because of our continued support for Israel. But it would appear these days that we are backing away from her. And according to Bible prophecy, one day, there will be no great ally behind Israel. She will stand alone when she is attacked by an enemy from the north and its allies.

The Bible also predicts that a national revival will come to Israel, when God will once again pour out his Spirit upon the nation. But this will happen after the rapture of the church. Romans 11:25 predicts, "Some of the people of Israel have hard hearts, but this will last only until the full number of Gentiles comes to Christ."

I have met people who can quote chapter and verse and give a good overview of the proper chronology of events of the end times, yet they are not living godly lives. And they are missing the point. If knowing what the Bible predicts about the last days doesn't impact us in the way that we live, then we have missed what God is trying to say. Jesus didn't say, "When these things begin to happen, argue about it." Rather, he said, "When these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near" (Luke 21:28 NKJV).

Fathers, Are You Making This 1 Huge Mistake?

We hunkered down in the family room around the warmth of the wood burning stove and decided to rent a movie. Ready to give up on the vast listing of non-interesting moves we came across ‘The Judge’ with Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall.

If you go online and visit the common places for movie reviews you might skip over this movie because it got beaten up a bit by the movie critics. What do the critics know, right? I thought the movie was engaging and deeply moving and it hit a really BIG chord with me.

What chord was that?

Under God’s Training

He guarded him…like an eagle that stirs up its nest and hovers over its young, that spreads its wings to catch them and carries them on its pinions. The Lord alone led him; no foreign god was with him. (Deuteronomy 32:10-12)

Our almighty God is like a parent who delights in leading the tender children in His care to the very edge of a precipice and then shoving them off the cliff into nothing but air. He does this so they may learn that they already possess an as-yet-unrealized power of flight that can forever add to the pleasure and comfort of their lives. Yet if, in their attempt to fly, they are exposed to some extraordinary peril, He is prepared to swoop beneath them and carry them skyward on His mighty wings. When God brings any of His children into a position of unparalleled difficulty, they may always count on Him to deliver them.

I Love You Could Not Have Been Said A Better Way!

I want you to imagine this scene.

God had just finished creating Adam and Eve placing them within the pristine landscape of Eden; a land of paradise beyond our wildest imagination.

They live in a garden paradise where they could thrive and raise a family of their own, but this garden of theirs is more than a physical utopia. It’s a land where they live in perfect harmony with one another and with their Creator. They would commune with Him as their Father and as a friend. And that relationship – more than all the fruit-bearing trees, more than all the crystal waters, more than the beauty and comfort of their surroundings – provides everything their human hearts could ever desire. They have love, because their love came from God. They had joy, because their joy came from God. They had peace because their peace camefrom ... more »

There was no hunger, greed, fear, or pain because God’s holy presence surrounded and filled that perfect place.

Suddenly a rebellious angel invades this perfect scene in the form of a serpent. He introduces doubt and suspicion; they are deceived into believing his words instead of God’s words. He convinces them to choose their own way rather than trusting God’s way.

No Man Is an Island
By John Eldredge

The life we have is so far from the life we truly want, and it doesn’t take us long to find someone to blame. In order for our longings to be filled, we need the cooperation of others. I long for a loving embrace and a kind word when I get home. I long for my boys to listen attentively when I talk about important life lessons. I want my work to be appreciated. I want my friends to be there for me in hard times. “No man is an island,” wrote John Donne, and he could have been speaking of desire. We need others—it’s part of our design. Very few of our desires are self-fulfilling; all our deepest longings require others to come through for us. Inevitably, someone stands in the way.

No Man Is an Island
By John Eldredge

The life we have is so far from the life we truly want, and it doesn’t take us long to find someone to blame. In order for our longings to be filled, we need the cooperation of others. I long for a loving embrace and a kind word when I get home. I long for my boys to listen attentively when I talk about important life lessons. I want my work to be appreciated. I want my friends to be there for me in hard times. “No man is an island,” wrote John Donne, and he could have been speaking of desire. We need others—it’s part of our design. Very few of our desires are self-fulfilling; all our deepest longings require others to come through for us. Inevitably, someone stands in the way.

At its best, the world is indifferent to my desires. The air traffic controllers aren’t the least affected when I’ve been traveling for a week and the flight they’ve chosen to cancel is my last chance to get home to my family. So long as it doesn’t affect them, they couldn’t care less. We suffer the violation of indifference on a daily basis, from friends, from family, from complete strangers. We think we’ve grown to accept it as part of life, but the effect is building inside us. We weren’t made to be ignored. And though we try to pretend it doesn’t really matter, the collective effect of living in a world apathetic to our existence is doing damage to our souls. Events such as bad traffic or delayed flights are merely the occasions for our true desperation to come out. As our desires come into direct conflict with the desires of another person, things get downright hostile.

(Excerpt from 'Desire' by John Edlredge)

Nothing Grey About That

"No woman wants to be in submission to a man who isn't in submission to God." -TD Jakes

Men, it’s your responsibility to lead and give 100 percent. Ephesians 5:24 makes it VERY clear that you’re the head of your marriage as Christ is the head of the church. You are responsible to LEAD! You carry the burden when decisions need to be made and God will hold YOU accountable to lead your family!

This does NOT mean you are to be a dominating jerk...you are to be a SERVANT LEADER! Ephesians 5:25 makes it VERY clear that you are to LOVE your wife “as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.” 

Remember men, Jesus washed the disciples’ feet (John 13). Your leadership as a husband is modeled on the example of Jesus who demonstrated His love as head of the church by laying down His life. It'ssacrificia... more »

What does this mean?

It means your love and your leadership are NOT based on your emotions or how your wife treats you or score keeping - instead, you anchor your love and leadership in Jesus!

Let me say it in another way...you are to lovingly lead by laying down your life for her and your family!

Remember Their Names
Narrative by Ann Voskamp

...whatever the world news may say about the Brave, Martyred 21 Christians who were beheaded by ISIS, Lord, we know Your Word speaks the Truth: "The world was not worthy of them." (Heb.11:38)

However any evil thinks it's winning & overcoming, Your Truth declares that they are the Overcomers, that they overcame "because of the blood of the Lamb & because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death." (Rev.12:11)

And wherever Your people are tonight, God, We will remember every one of their names because they did not forget You or forsake claiming Your name, We will pray for their families because they are our literal family, And we will pray that our faith in You

And we will weep prayers for the persecuted Church because we are bound to them through Your Heart & in Your heart they are UNBOUND, UNDEFEATABLE, UNDAUNTED, & UNFORGETTABLE.

Courage Robbers: The Top 10 Things Men Fear Most

I am amped up to be one of the group leaders for a 10 week series our Men’s Ministry group is spearheading at our church called, “Stepping Up”. I was encouraged to see 80+ men decide to take this journey with us to step up into Biblical manhood, despite the crazy snow storm that was raging on outside.

“Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.” -1 Corinthians 16:13-14

After watching the inspiring session one video, which highlighted the courageous story of Red Erwin an airman of the Los Angeles B-29 Super-fortress, I met the five men assigned to my group who will be taking this journey with me.

As I was going through the weekly exercises I paused at the section called ‘Courage Robbers’ because so many of us men just get paralyzed by courage robbers.

Here is an excerpt from my book Heartstone where I share a snippet of dealing with some of my own courage robbers:

Overcoming

Multitudes will sit in their easy chairs and read about God's promises, but you and I are called not only to know God's promises but to possess them and walk them out. You see, the real question for us as Christians is not "Are you saved?" but "Are you overcoming?" -Francis Frangipane (This Day We Fight!)

For everyone who cannot finish a conversation with your loved one without looking at your smartphone. For everyone who always seems to request a table for three at a restaurant; you, your smartphone and your loved one. For everyone who places more value on whats happening on social media or the "ding" of your most recent txt than their loved one. I'm sure I'm missing more ways we tune out the ones we love with our smartphones ;)

Whatever happened to putting all the distractions around us aside and spending some quality time with the one we love? Might sound bit corny, but we are all guilty of it!

So here is the challenge: Do you have the guts to put down your smartphone and send your loved one this Valentines Day card?

May something in this holiday stir something inside of you to find your resolve to stand for whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, for Godliness and freedom.

Who Are You Becoming?
By Morgan Snyder

I was reading an NPR news article on Apple’s recent iPhone release and all the upgrades associated with their big splash.  In the world of “let’s build a better mousetrap,” it was quite impressive.

Here are a few features that caught my attention:

-a new lower-end 5c release at the $99.00 price point to capture an entire generation of future technology addicts

-cool, crazy colors that just might satisfy every single person’s preference and personality

-a fancy “Gold” luxury model that communicates status, power, and prestige for those of us feeling like maybe our iPhone isn’t as big as a buddy’s iPhone

-the all-new “Touch ID,” Apple’s response to the “necessary” fingerprint technology  (I sure don’t want anyone sneaking on my phone and messing up my Angry Birdsscores, right?!)

-the all-new “Touch ID,” Apple’s response to the “necessary” fingerprint technology  (I sure don’t want anyone sneaking on my phone and messing up my Angry Birds scores, right?!)

-and as if the current camera wasn’t remarkable enough on the 4s, this next one raises the bar leaps and bounds, boasting 8-megapixel image capture, 33% light-sensitivity increase, new true-tone double flash, burst mode, and the list goes on…

-an all new 64-bit processor that boasts speed of up to twice as fast as anything Apple has ever released before  (This incidentally is 56 times the speed of the original iPhone released in 2007.)

It was the next line that caught me off guard.

And “investors were unimpressed” as Apple stock price responded with a huge drop of 3%.

Of course they were.

Here’s the reality, hiding within it a deeper dilemma.

Lions And Tigers And Bears...Oh My!

I have no peace! I have no quiet! I have no rest! And trouble keeps coming. -Job 3:26 GWT

"Some of us feel overpowered, drained by unending news of wars, plagues and upheaval. Yet, recall Paul’s words. He wrote, “Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary” (Gal 6:9). Do we see this? We can sow the right words and plant the right faith but if we grow weary we will not reap. Thus, Jesus urges, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt 11:28). This is not just a salvation verse, it is a daily requirement for all who truly reap the life of God." -Francis Frangipane

Build on Your Own Foundation
By Pastor Greg Laurie

For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure. —Philippians 2:13

Some people are really into exercise. They love to work up a sweat, go on a run, or lift weights. I hate all of it. And I know I'm not alone in that. But the fact of the matter is that we really need to exercise. We can't hire someone to work out for us. It's something we have to do for ourselves.

The apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Philippi, "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure" (Philippians 2:12–13). Paul was in prison when he wrote this epistle. He was writing it from Rome and was experiencing anxiety over the fact that he was separated from these believers.

Build on Your Own Foundation

The apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Philippi, "Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure" (Philippians 2:12–13). Paul was in prison when he wrote this epistle. He was writing it from Rome and was experiencing anxiety over the fact that he was separated from these believers.

Effectively Paul was saying, "Look, guys, I can't be with you right now. I wish I were there to offer you guidance and to be a good example for you, but I can't do it. But check it out. It is God who works in you, not Paul."

They may have thought, We can't live the Christian life without Paul around. Well, actually they could. And if pastors and spiritual leaders are doing their jobs properly, they will get you up on your own feet spiritually so that you are not dependent on them.

Paul was saying, "Guys, keep things in perspective. It is God who is doing the work. Maybe He worked through me, but it's still God who did the work."

We can put people on pedestals and think they can do no wrong. And sometimes people will base their relationship with God on someone else's relationship with God. That isn't good. We need to get our own faith. We need to build on our own foundation.
