Podcast Soul Fitness Image3I’ve got something new for you! I created something to help you get your soul fit – the easy way! It’s a podcast that may just throw you off your holy rocker!

If Christianity sometimes seems hard and complex because of all things you’re expected to do….let’s cut you some slack.

  • If you feel like God isn’t on your side because you’ve made too many mistakes…you’ll feel his favor again.
  • If you’ve grown up feeling like you have to perform for God in order to get God to like you, love you, or listen to you…you’ll learn how to beak free.
  • If you’re confused about what God wants to give you as a believer…you’ll discover what’s rightfully yours.
  • If you want to grow in the Lord but it just seems too hard…you’ll discover an easier God-approved way!
  • If you’re worn out from going to church and serving and it’s just not fun anymore…you’ll get that fire back.
  • If you’re thinking God’s not interested in making your dreams come true or bringing you that miracle you’ve been waiting for…you’ll realize your breakthrough is closer than you think.
  • If you’re tired of feeling condemned…there’s a breath of fresh grace waiting for you.

You need this!

But I want to warn you: This is NOT your Mama’s religion! No rules. Just righteousness. How you say? It’s powered by grace. Grace TRAINS us to live right.

If you’re tired of Christianity’s so-called rules and regulations, if religion makes you want to gag, tune in to the “Soul Fitness – Made Easy” Podcast. It’s available in iTunes or you can listen now by clicking here.

President Obama, Mitt Romney

Are you disappointed with who won the election or tempted to believe God doesn’t care or that he’s lost control? Or that he is allowing the nation to fall apart? Maybe you’re upset about who’s in control of the house or senate. Does it looks like the wrong people are in office and your nation and community are in a downward spiral? Not true. Whether you voted for President Obama or Mitt Romney, let me show you that regardless of who won the election – it’s going to be ok for you.

Here’s a promise from the Bible that you can count on when everything looks like it’s falling apart:

Romans 8:28 says, 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)

Let me clarify a few things about this promise that all things work together for good:

  1. The Bible doesn’t say that EVERYTHING that happens is good. It says God can work it into something good.
  2. The Bible doesn’t promise that we will ALWAYS see the good right away. It may take time.
  3. God can bring a good that we don’t recognize.
  4. God doesn’t say he will bring good out of bad FOR EVERYBODY – only for those “who love God and are called according to his purpose” (For Christians who are genuinely walking with God.)

Here’s an example from God: God had tough things happen to him too. God’s son died. Tough right? In fact, God’s son was murdered.

And let’s not forget Jesus, God’s son, was tortured, then killed. It didn’t look good when it all went down. But hold on…

It ALL happened for YOUR GOOD!

Let’s recap. Situation – Jesus was killed.

What good was in it for you? It gave you the way to be forgiven and saved from hell.

Hebrews 4:14-16 says, Now that we know what we have—Jesus, this great High Priest with ready access to God—let’s not let it slip through our fingers. We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all—all but the sin. So let’s walk right up to him and get what he is so ready to give. Take the mercy, accept the help. (Message)

God and Jesus Identify With What You’re Going Through

Whether we’re talking about the election or anything else in your life, know Jesus is in touch with your reality. God knows about tough stuff, and will make all things work together for you and this nation. So if your disappointed, don’t worry, God has everything under control and he will make even the election results work together for your good.
