2.15 - Be A Moses: “Here. I. Am.”

Be A Moses- _Here. I. Am._.jpeg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker really rumbles like Moses on this Friday's episode. She begs God to show her a very clear direction for her life, but instead of revealing his will through a burning bush, God sends a friend to remind Justine that His grace and presence is enough.

Exodus 3:2, 4b: 
2: There, the Special Messenger of the Eternal appeared to Moses in a fiery blaze from within the bush. Moses looked again at the bush as it blazed; but to his amazement, the bush did not burn up in flames.
4b: Eternal One: Moses! Moses!
Moses: I’m right here.

1 Peter 5:9-11: 
9 Resist him and be strong in your faith, knowing that your brothers and sisters throughout the world are fellow sufferers with you. 10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of grace who has called you [to His everlasting presence][b] through Jesus the Anointed will restore you, support you, strengthen you, and ground you. 11 For all power belongs to God, now and forever. Amen.
 

2.14 - Be Moses and Ask for Help

Be Moses and Ask for Help.jpeg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker dives into the care and provision of the Heavenly Father, even amidst His anger, when his son, Moses, continually doubts. Rather than find confidence in the Lord's strength, Moses tries to talk his way out of God's plan... and God doesn't concede. 

Exodus 4: 10-14 (The Voice): 
Moses: 10 Please, Lord, I am not a talented speaker. I have never been good with words. I wasn’t when I was younger and I haven’t gotten any better since You revealed Yourself to me. I stutter and stammer. My words get all twisted.

Eternal One: 11 Who is it that gives a person a mouth? Who determines whether one person speaks and another doesn’t? Why is it that one person hears and another doesn’t? And why can one person see and another doesn’t? Isn’t it because of Me, the Eternal? You know it is. 12 Go now, and I will be there to give you the words to speak; I will tell you what to say.

Moses: 13 Please, Lord, I beg you to send Your message through someone else, anyone else.

14 Then the Eternal became angry with Moses.

Eternal One: How about your brother—Aaron the Levite? I know he speaks eloquently. And look, he is already on his way to meet you.

Luke 22:42 (The Voice): Jesus: Father, if You are willing, take this cup away from Me. Yet not My will, but Your will, be done.

2.13 - Is Your Heart Hard Like Pharaoh?

Is Your Heart Hard Like Pharaoh_3F.jpeg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker wonders if she is like ‘hard hearted Pharaoh’ when he refused to let the Israelites leave Egypt. Justine wrestles through several chapters in Exodus to discover that we’re all stubborn like Pharaoh at times, but letting go of our control and giving everything over to God - because he is faithful - is what sets us apart.

Exodus 4:21b - "But I am going to harden Pharaoh’s stony heart, so that he will not free the people."

Exodus 7:14 - Eternal One (to Moses): "Pharaoh’s heart is as hard as stone. He refuses to release My people."

Exodus 8:15b - "And he hardened his own heart and refused to listen to Moses and Aaron, just as the Eternal had said." 

Exodus 9: 7, 12 - 
7b - "But Pharaoh’s heart was still as hard as stone, and he refused to release the people."
12 - "The Eternal made Pharaoh’s hard heart even harder, and Pharaoh was not moved by the miraculous deeds and the words of Moses and Aaron, just as the Eternal had told Moses." 

2.12 - Good Friday? Doesn't Seem so Good to Me...

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how mind-blowing the love of the Father is: A love so deep that His son, Jesus, surrendered his life to a brutal death on a cross, so WE may experience the perfect love shared between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (the Trinity). All because we're worth it. THAT is why Friday's crucifixion is 'good' and we humbly and anxiously look forward to Sunday. 

John 3:16: 
For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life. 

Phillipians 2:6-8: 
6 Though He was in the form of God,
    He chose not to cling to equality with God;
7 But He poured Himself out to fill a vessel brand new;
    a servant in form
    and a man indeed.
The very likeness of humanity,
8 He humbled Himself,
    obedient to death—
    a merciless death on the cross!

John 1:14: 
14 The Voice took on flesh and became human and chose to live alongside us. We have seen Him, enveloped in undeniable splendor—the one true Son of the Father—evidenced in the perfect balance of grace and truth.

2.11 - Positive Affirmations, Jesus Style

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how personal development begins in the Bible: When we pray with unrelenting belief, we shall receive... just like visualizations lead to manifestations. Of course, our prayers must align with God's will, but when we declare TRUTH, the truth changes our lives and the world in a mighty powerful way. 

Mark 11: 22-24 (The Voice): Jesus: 22 Trust in God. 23 If you do, honestly, you can say to this mountain, “Mountain, uproot yourself and throw yourself into the sea.” If you don’t doubt, but trust that what you say will take place, then it will happen. 24 So listen to what I’m saying: Whatever you pray for or ask from God, believe that you’ll receive it and you will.

Belief in God's promises while struggling in the present DO co-exist.

Which Prodigal Son are You_3F.jpeg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks about a lesson often overlooked in the famous parable, The Prodigal Son. She considers what it means for the Father to not judge and condemn either son for his sins, lovingly offering his entire estate to them both, regardless of their 'good' actions.

Luke 15:31 (The Voice):

31 The father replied, “My son, you are always with me, and all I have is yours. 32 Isn’t it right to join in the celebration and be happy? This is your brother we’re talking about. He was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found again!”

A Strength of Faith - Mark 4.jpeg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker continues her discussion on the end of Mark 4, a lesson that is by far one of the hardest to apply during turbulent times of life. Unwavering FAITH is shown to not only produce miracles, but to keep an uncanny peace and certainty while life is uncontrollable. 

Mark 4: 38-41 (The Voice): 
38 Jesus was back in the stern of the boat, sound asleep on a cushion, when the disciples shook Him awake.
Disciples (shouting over the storm): Jesus, Master, don’t You care that we’re going to die? 39 He got up, shouted words into the wind, and commanded the waves. Jesus: That’s enough! Be still! And immediately the wind died down to nothing, the waves stopped.
Jesus: 40 How can you be so afraid? After all you’ve seen, where is your faith? 41 The disciples were still afraid, slowly coming to grips with what they had seen. Disciples (to one another): Who is this Jesus? How can it be that He has power over even the wind and the waves?

1.13 - I Want the Things of This World, and I Don’t Need Them - Mark 4

I Want the Things of This World_2C and I Don_27t Need Them - Mark 4.jpeg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks from Mark 4, the Parable of the Farmer Scattering Seed. She discusses how oftentimes we let the worries and the drive for unimportant things of this world claim our lives, rather than letting the life of God take root and produce 'fruit' of eternal value. Justine challenges us to not just 'hear' the word, but to meditate and act on it so that our knowledge of the good news may not be choked and lost. 

Mark 4:18-19 - Still others are the seed tossed among weeds and brambles. The word has reached them, but the things of this life—the worries, the drive for more and more, the desire for other things—those things cluster around close and choke the life of God out of them until they cannot produce.

Mark 4:20 - But those last seeds—those sown into good soil? Those people hear the word, accept it, meditate on it, act on it, and bear fruit—a crop 30, 60, or 100 times larger than the farmer dropped to earth.

1.12 - Is There Certainty in Faith?

Is There Certainty in Faith_3F.jpeg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how since we're human, certainty that 'all will be okay' in the Christian walk of faith requires a dare to believe. If we reach out to Jesus like the bleeding woman in Mark 5, we can experience healing and peace - even in present trouble, hardship, sickness.

Today's Scripture, The Voice - http://amzn.to/2sGTx4B

Mark 5:28: Even if all I touch are His clothes, I know I will be healed.

Mark 5:33: Daughter, you are well because you dared to believe. Go in peace, and stay well.

He_27s Our Example of Struggle - Take This Cup.jpeg

Bestselling author and Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator (based on the research of Brené Brown) Justine Froelker talks how Jesus IS what she likes to call, 'The Permission of the And'. Through Jesus' obedience to the Father on the cross, Jesus experiences the feelings of 'I don't want to do this' and 'I trust you anyway'. Jesus FELT IT ALL, giving His children comfort in knowing that He has walked before them and can handle whatever 'Complicated Gray' we face.

Matthew 26: 39, 42 (The Voice):

Jesus: Father, this is the last thing I want. If there is any way, please take this bitter cup from Me. Not My will, but Yours be done.

Jesus: Father, if there is no other way for this cup to pass without My drinking it—then not My will, but Yours be done.
