“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13Anyone who takes a step into my house knows that I fully enjoy every aspect of Christmas. I go all out with the decorating at my house. Clark Griswald?  He’s an amateur. While some may think that misses the point and the spirit of Christmas.  There is a reason why I enjoy Christmas to its fullest each year.  One year, I almost didn’t survive Christmas.
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”  -- Isaiah 6:8Most people called by God have one of two reactions.  Isaiah's, where they enthusiastically embrace what God has called them to do, or Jonah's.  Jonah hopped on a boat and went the other way.  It took getting eaten by a whale and being spit up on shore for him to do God's will.  In this episode, Todd explains how he is more like Jonah, but hopes you are more like Isaiah. He keeps it real and hopes you will too.
"God is our refuge and strength,    an ever-present help in trouble."  ~Psalm 46:1God is our deliverer.  Sometimes He intervenes directly to deliver us, and sometimes, He delivers us through other people.  Sometimes, he delivers us through professionals who are trained to help us.  In this episode, we are extremely fortunate to have a very special guest, Paul Calcote.  Paul is a husband, young adult pastor and podcaster who loves God, loves people, and loves life. Paul is passionate about encouraging and equipping people to be and do all that God has called them be and do.  In this episode, Paul will share how God delivered him from the bounds of depression, and tell us how it is ok to seek help from others, including professionals. 
"He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock" ~ Psalm 40:2God is always there to help us when we get bogged down in in the mire. It may not be on our timing, but it will be on HIS timing. When we are going through our storms and are stuck in the miry clay, it is important to trust HIM and know that  He will rescue us, help us and make us secure.  God will provide for us and meet our needs, all we need to do is trust Him.
"And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast." (1 Peter 5:10)In this episode, we are honored to have a very special Guest, the Reverend Dr. Timothy Rogers-Martin, Lead Pastor of Eastminster Presbyterian Church.  Pastor Tim delivers an uplifting message of comfort and grace from 1 Peter 5. 
When the Japanese mend broken objects, the aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold. They believe that an object's cracks, or scars, give the object its history and its character, making it even more beautiful. In many ways, we are like cracked pottery, some with physical and some with emotional cracks or scars. When we are broken, God mends us, comforts us and strengthens us, making us even more beautiful.
Failure is NOT an option!  Or is it?  Failure has happened to everyone and has many reasons.  No matter the source or timing or reasons for your failure, it is not the end. In this episode, the author shares examples of failure and overcoming failure, from his own life and from some famous Bible Characters.  Failure is not the end, for many it can be the beginning!
In this episode, I will share something I never thought I would share, two are the darkest periods of my life. I overcame the darkness and attained victory.  As Christians, we will struggle. However, as Christians, we have hope. As Christians, we will have victory...Victory in Christ.
When I was leaving the navy, I was due to fly to Houston from Japan.  I decided I would try a little experiment. Previously, I would fret every little detail, praying for help as every little problem arose.  While there is nothing wrong with praying for help, I did so more out of anxiety then I did out of faith.  This time, I told God that I would trust to be in control.  If any problems came up during the trip, I would not fret or get anxious, I would simply trust in Him.
Jesus Christ has overcome death and has overcome the world. He is our champion and our victor. Our God is our comfort and our refuge. While we are on this earth, we are going to have problems, but God is greater than all of that. All the problems we face will pass away. Jesus, He is eternal, and with Him in your life, you will outlast all the difficulties life can throw at you.
