A ROCK solid foundation is needed to transform and build life on
Erik Salzenstein's story is one that truly shows the power of change and what's possible. From greed and addiction to purpose and fulfillment. Erik found himself facing life in prison, with his back against the wall where he finally had to face his worst enemy up until that point.....himself.
What stands out that he had to go to prison to find freedom and realized he was in his own prison long before actually being behind bars. He then went on to spend 4 years relentlessly pursuing personal growth, coaching, speaking, running workshops and even being published in a newspaper all while in prison. He developed a 4 step process using the acronym ROCK that allowed him to tap into his full potential and develop the ROCK solid foundation needed to transform and build his life on. He's since used this process with much success to his clients lives.
Erik is a powerful and sought out...
Take the lemons in your life and open up a lemonade stand
Losing a checker or ping pong game, a race or boxing match, a board game or not winning the lottery - these are examples of when we can "suffer defeat." Friendly, healthy competition has winners and losers. It doesn't define who we are as individuals.
However, in other life situations, we allow defeat to define us: bankruptcy, divorce, fired from a job, loss of a limb, debilitating disease, even things like tragedy, retirement, incarceration, or unexpected loss of a loved one. We often file these devastating events under "defeat" and go through a period of mourning, depression, or shame. We can feel as though "life is over" or that "we're a loser" or "we'll never amount to much because of...." (fill in the blank).
If we stay too long in these things they become baggage that we carry with us into each new season of life. The compounding weight can become very cumbersome.
You already have everything you need.
The Lord is my shepherd; I have all that I need. Psalm 23:1
The famous king and poet, David, wrote this lyric as a man acquainted with pain. David was told from a young age that he would be king. Nothing pointed to that promise coming true for years. In fact, the sitting king hated his guts and chased him around the wilderness, trying to kill him.
David understood that even when he had nothing, and was on the run with his life in the balance, he already had what he needed. He learned to trust that the Lord was his shepherd, provider, protector... even when circumstances were at their worst.
It seems the bigger the promise, the greater the pain on the journey. The secret is believing along the way, “the Lord is my shepherd, I already have what I need.”
The journey of faith insists upon rest.
He lets me rest in green meadows; He leads me beside peaceful streams. He renews my...
In this episode Mama J and Chad have a great conversation about infectiousness, Love, Holiness and choice.
"Holiness is not infectious." Haggai 2:10-14
Haggai describes how God's glory will fill His house. We are God's house, His dwelling place. God was teaching His priests (which we are also) the principle that holiness and unholiness don't mix.
If I put a drop of saltwater into a container of pure water; it's no longer pure. If a moldy piece of fruit is in a basket with good fruit, what happens? The moldy fruit contaminates the whole basket.
However, the reverse is not true. Saltwater is not made pure by pouring pure water into it. Good apples in the basket will not un-contaminate the moldy one. Same with us. God gave Adam and Eve freedom, authority and access to Himself. He only had one restriction: "Don't eat from that tree!"
There HAD to be a choice involved. Otherwise their relationship with God would not be based on love-because-I-want-to, but...

Keep on keepin’ on and be ready to pivot when needed. This one also sounds like it’s talking out of both sides of your mouth. Be steadfast and YET be quick to pivot!
Walking by faith is like a balancing act on a highwire…might take you awhile to get the hang of it…to know how God speaks to you and His instructions to you, etc. So you can “hear and obey.”
II Timothy 4:1-5
The prophetic in the Bible is packaged in order to offend the flesh (to bring conviction) and to reveal the spirit. God's desire is for you to stay aligned to His righteousness.
Your best never comes easy!
The price you pay in the struggle is worth it for the reward that comes...
I recently heard an example of how this plays out: A husband said, "The other day, my wife was washing clothes.
The washing machine is a distance from where I was sitting watching TV, and she and I began talking loudly back and forth, and ended up, getting on each other’s last nerve.
This depressed me because earlier in the day, I had a real good prayer asking Father God to give me patience, and more love for others—trying to fulfill the “love your neighbor as yourself” instructions.
Agitated and frustrated I retreated to my “man cave,” my office.
I put on a CD by Dr. Clarice Fluitt. She...
Obviously love God, love others, gratitude, praise, giving, etc. etc. All those basics we should always do, it’s like the base of the best ice cream sundae… BUT for 2021…after coming out of 2020…my sliced strawberries, chopped walnuts and chocolate syrup on top are going to be:
1. Surrender to God and Fight the good fight of Faith. Sounds like an oxymoron, but it isn’t. We surrender our will to His and then fight with the Word of God. Because the battle IS real; but the victory is assured.
James 4:7 “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.”
I Timothy 6:12 “Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. Paul uses active and forceful verbs to describe the Christian life. Flee. Pursue. Fight. Take Hold. Christianity is not a passive religion that says to wait...
