16 – On Feeling Lost

We have all been there.  Sometimes we get lost in our jobs, relationships, our role as a parent, or simply feel lost in life in general; or how about just being really busy, losing your passion?  You know social media isn’t really helping you  feel better.  What if you can’t find your purpose?  What if you have too much going on?  If you feel overloaded, you are not alone. It doesn’t mean your life is doomed and that you will never find yourself again. Going to share the Parable of the Lost Sheep with thoughts on being lost and tips on saving money (food) reading from the Book of Exodus.  And an encouragement to establish goals.  Join.speaklifepodcast.com 

The Parable of the Lost Sheep is one of the parables of Jesus. It appears in the Gospels of Matthew (Matthew 18:12–14) and Luke (Luke 15:3–7). It is about a shepherd who leaves his flock of ninety-nine sheep in order to find the one which is lost.

Luke 15

 Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.

And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.

And he spake this parable unto them, saying,

What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing.

And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost.

I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.

Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and seek diligently till she find it?

And when she hath found it, she calleth her friends and her neighbours together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have found the piece which I had lost.

10 Likewise, I say unto you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.

[Podcast Episode 12] Immanuel, Malachi, Money and a friend named Ben

The reason for the season we call Christmas, my thoughts on how folks think about giving money at Church, interview with the owner and creator of Joyce Pipes, the Bible verses leading up to the Ten Commandments as I read from the book of Exodus.

 

Immanuel (Hebrew: עִמָּנוּאֵל meaning, “God with us”

 

For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.  Luke 2:11

 

The real message of Christmas is not the gifts that we give to each other. Rather, it is a reminder of the gift that God has given to each of us. It is the only gift that truly keeps on giving, love.

In our money section, Kenn reads and talks about what the book of Malachi says about tithes and offerings, how it is abused and misused.  How what we do affects our ministry.  Its more than money.

“We must all learn to live together as brothers or we will all perish together as fools.  We are tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality.  And whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly.  For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be.  This is the way God’s universe is made; this is the way it is structured.”            Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

We have these treasures in earthen vessels

I have tried many things over the years and unfortunately have a reputation for it.  Whenever I interview someone for anything outside of my Black Man with A Gun persona, they remind me of all the things I have tried, started, and failed.  It is never done maliciously.  It is just a statement of fact.  The Black Man with a Gun persona refers to the gun rights activism, firearms training business, website and podcast I have had since 1991.

Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall. ~ Confucius

On October 1, 2017, I started to plan a new podcast in spite of my record.  My goal is to do the will that God has for my life.

Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.  Ephesians 3:7

Acknowledging that I am far from perfect.  I am still a work in progress.  On my best days I know that I have this gift of His grace in an “earthen vessel.”

The Speak Life Podcast is a ministry for all that want it.  I will be providing insight into the Bible.  We will be sharing the Gospel message.  The mission is to help others make better life choices, and provide mobile Christian fellowship that transforms lives.  I got this from Isaiah 52:7 which three points I am going to follow for this show.

•             Bringing Good News
•             Proclaiming Peace
•             Proclaiming Salvation

 

The next big thing is that I am working on the paperwork for a nonprofit.  I am already one in Maryland but have to make it federal.  There is always something you don’t know.

During the Thanksgiving holiday I heard a lot of bad news.  Several people took their own lives.  Some murdered their families (none of these I knew personally but someone did).  Evil is still here.  Please pray for me to stay focused, defeat the enemies of God and be an effective witness for Christ.  Thank you for listening to this show.

I looked at the download stats last night and saw that the show has had 1000 downloads in November.  I also saw about 100 regular subscribers.  Thank you.

Please share what I can help you with in Christ.  What are the subject of your prayers?  How do you want me to pray for you or what petition do you desire confirmation?  Are you saved?   What questions do you have about faith, and God?  Would you like a conversation via phone or video?

Please let me know.

I am designing a lapel pin, would you want one?  Let me know.

Kenn
