One fo the great things about God is that He makes the complex extremely simple. His Word is straightforward, repent, believe in His one and only Son, return to Me and I will return to you are just some big but simple examples of God's Word. Today we are going to lay out for you some simple ideas to help you become as successful as God has intended you to be.  We feel that if you can grasp these simple truths and then live them out in your life that you too will experience God's blessings in a way that you haven't seen yet. 
One of the biggest hinderances to Christians today is that the enemy has convinced them that they are not enough. Too many of us think we're not good enough, smart enough or know enough to do things for God. This idea though is a lie! You and I are created by God, the owner of all the cattle and the hills! God made you more than enough and He gave you all the abilities to do the unique job God created for you. Join us today as we continue in our series called Go and DO as we discuss the word TALENTS with Bruce Pulver.Reach out to Bruce at www.abovethechatterourwordsmatter.com 
I'm afraid someday I'm going to get to heaven someday and have a bad case of FOMO(Fear of Missing Out) realized to become IDMO(I did miss out) because I was afraid to step out and meet God. By meeting God I'm not saying for the first time but meeting Him at least halfway. Today we're going to discuss the idea of risk and how important it is for us as Christians to follow the example of Christ and be willing to take a risk. Exercising your faith is applying your faith against the resistance. Join us today and step out a little.

I'll never forget that moment in the first Indiana Jones movie where the bad guy is talking excitedly about the Ark of the Covenant because with it you can talk to God! Guess what? We don't need the Ark to talk to God because the blood of Jesus built the bridge to the throne room of God. Hebrews 4:16 tells us we can confidently come to the throne of Grace and receive His mercy. That is the power of prayer! Today James and I want to share with you how we see the power and idea of prayer. Come boldly to God, praise His holy name with thanksgiving and ask in the name of Jesus. Stop believing that you're not good enough or that God is too busy to listen to you. Nothing could be further from the truth and always remember that the truth (Jesus) is what sets us free. 
It's one thing to be READY as we learned last week but it's another thing to being WILLING. God wants you to want to be with Him. You and I need to be WILLING to do the things necessary to be the person God wants us to be. We need to say YES to GOD and then take any and all steps necessary to follow Him. Wordsmith Bruce Pulver of Above the Chatter our Words Matter helps James and I to bring WILLING to the Podcast table.  
Imagine having a faith that is so bold that everyone tries to convince you otherwise? Now imagine suffering for 3 years with a disease and all the while counting that suffering as joy. That is the mindset of Delphine Kirkland, who for three years walked alone in the physical realm but was guarded, lifted up and blessed by Jesus in the spiritual realm. Her book " Just Jesus and Me" details her walk of pain and subsequent healing at the hands of God. This is the podcast to listen to if you are dealing with doubt, issues of healing or if you just want to know how to truly exercise your faith in the darkest of circumstance. You will be changed because God's Word does not come back void. James and I both agree this is one of the best interviews we've ever been blessed to be a part of. Join us, let go and let God. 
Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Are you READY to finally say yes to God and move forward with the life God has for you? If you answered yes you're going to enjoy our time today with Bruce Pulver. As you know Bruce has a way with words and we are starting a new series with him that's designed to get you off the couch and into the arena of life. It's time to get READY.

Just what exactly am I supposed to do and how come my Pastor doesn't do everything?Ephesians 4:12 it is "..to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ," It is important to understand this role because it helps us as the body defines our role as well. A Pastor's job is to equip the saints so that the saints can go out and be the hands and feet of Jesus. Defining these roles leads us to understand that we don't go to church to "feel better" or put the focus on being blessed or favored. The Pastor equips us by teaching the will of God through the life of Jesus Christ. We then go out to demonstrate what we have learned to the world. Our role is to walk in love and be the light. If you don't see it in Jesus' life or hear Him say it, we shouldn't see it in our lives. When we have this focus which found in Mathew 6:33, then the fruits of the Spirit will manifest themselves in our lives. Having the wrong expectations can lead to disappointment, so today remind yourself of your purpose and let the love of the Father shine through you! 
The EYFPodcast is thankful that every Wednesday we get to sit down with Bruce Pulver of Above the Chatter our Words Matter as he leads us to know God more with a quick word that has been placed on his heart. We've all heard of the harvest and we know that God is at work in everyone's lives but we often forget that God uses people just like you and I to help reach others and exercise our faith. Today we discuss the idea and importance of the word Harvest. 
You are more than your circumstances but often times we lose sight of the other side and our circumstances can overwhelm us. The great thing about a relationship with Jesus is the it is HE that help us to see past our struggles when we seek our rest in Him. Justen Smith has seen some tough circumstances in his life. He lost his dad when he was seven, spent two tours of duty in Iraq while seeing the worst of what man has to offer and has been able come out on the other side because in his tough times he knew who he was in Christ, and he never lost his identity.Even though the battle is a daily one, Justen has plans moving forward and one of these is planting the seeds of faith in the kids he trains and through his ministry "Progress in the Kitchen". Enjoy a refreshing conversation today with Army veteran Justen Smith.

How big is your God? That's a big question all right and it should be. Is your God big enough to provide fiber, food and shelter should you follow the seed that God has planted in your heart? Rory Groves wasn't entirely sure but he knew that spending time with his family was a currency that came with a price and he didn't want to waste every chance he had with his family so he and his wife set out to change their economy from the world to a family centered economy. Out of this seed has grown the Grovestead, his family farm that has become a teaching farm for his community and most importantly his family.  Rory took his passion for research and created a book called "Durable Trades" that is a compilation of all the different jobs since essentially the beginning of history that families have done to thrive and prosper in their economy. Durable Trades is literally a blueprint of what you could do if the desire to learn and be mentored is there for the individual looking to get away from the day to day and begin to spend a life of living. Too many of us think that our God is not concerned with the day to day issues of our lives and nothing could be further from the truth and Rory has proved that over and over with rabbits, chickens and building fences. God cares about everything and it takes a belief in a big God to reveal that to ourselves. There is still room for you out there in the country if you're just willing to believe and practice discipline. You can reach out to Rory at www.thegrovestead.com and buy his book, take a class and you can probably even milk the goat if you get there early enough.

Today we discuss the idea and importance of the word GERMINATE. 
16 million women in the United States are considered single parents and when a problem strikes there is only one set of shoulders for it to fall upon. A car repair to most people is a problem but a car repair issue to single women can be a crisis. The money involved to repair the car becomes a house issue, food issue and work issue. If you can't get to work you can't earn money, you can't pay rent and you can't pay for food. It's a vicious cycle that happens over and over again. Sometimes all people need is a hand up and someone to stand in that gap.That someone is Eddie Brown of Giving Words of Virginia. Eddie believes in being the pebble in the pond and it's through his ripples that young women in Virginia are being helped and in doing so lives are being changed and family trees are being reshaped. By helping young mothers to see beyond the struggle Eddie and his wife are building teams of victory in Christ and living out the Spirit of God through their work. We invite you to listen today and in doing so we invite you to partner with Eddie in prayer, finances or time as he seeks God's favor to move Giving Words out to the US and then the world. Every redwood started as a tiny seed and Giving Words is a growing tree providing shade and support to many. We hope you will help continue to water the seed God had Eddie and his wife to plant. http://givingwordsva.org/Donate: https://donate.chip-in.us/?nonprofitId=111885Facebook: www.facebook.com/givingwordsva/

There are a few times in your life when you realize you are on the receiving end of some serious wisdom and today was/is that day. The EYFPodcast team had a chance to sit down with Pastor John Long and he taught well the concept of grace and everyone who takes the time to listen will benefit greatly. Pastor John Long pastored several churches for 38 years and in that time led many to Christ as well as deepened the lives of believers during his years of service. It is truly an honor to bring Pastor John onto the show and on to the EYFpodcast team.

Bob Hasson hasn’t always understood what God had been trying to say to him because of the same reasons most of us have missed out, we weren’t listening. Hearing God speak to us is a learned skill. It requires us to be able to shut down all the outside noise and listen for the answer. Hearing God requires patience and understanding(wisdom) that God might be using other people, His Word, obstacles or simply events that occur in everyday to life to speak to us. In their new book “Wired to Hear” Bob Hasson and pastor Shawn Bolz dive deep into the concepts and idea of hearing God’s voice in the marketplace as nearly 98.5% of all Christians have vocations that exist outside of church. We know you are going to enjoy listening to Bob today as his manner of speaking is direct and practical and you will come away with more than what you brought by taking the time to hear him speak.  We encourage you to reach out to Bob at www.hassonconsulting.com and also pick up a copy of the book “Wired to Hear” and be prepared to hear from God.To connect with Shawn visit https://bolzministries.com/
