Sometimes things need to get worse before they get better. Often an argument, a failure, an exposure of sin, or some other kind of negative experience are the catalysts for godly sorrow, needed conversations, or the development of a needed plan for change. This message is not only a teaching, but it is a prophetic “now word” for what some of you are currently or recently experiencing.
Steve shares four pieces of wisdom for how to not be drained by the people in our lives (family, friends, and others). In most situations, if we are being drained in a relationship, it is because we have some bad beliefs or habits connected to our relationships. This short powerful teaching will help you upgrade how you do relationships and make them more fulfilling for you and others.
If we want to increase our physical muscles, we push against resistance (i.e. lifting weights, doing pushups, etc.). As in the natural, we build spiritual muscles and increase our spiritual load-bearing capacity by pushing again resistance in our emotions and beliefs. In this message, Steve Backlund will give you knowledge and inspiration to seize key moments in your life to build the spiritual “buff” muscles you are destined to walk in.
I used to always to be a victim of weeks that were not normal when unexpected things happened or when I was more tired than I thought. I thought, “I cannot keep my commitments or a good attitude because of this.” Then I realized this occurred almost every week, and I had to find a way to thrive in non-normal weeks. Learn from me (Steve Backlund) some of the truths that have helped me much.
What do you do when you have the correct counsel and then great problems happen because it is not listened to? This happened to the Apostle Paul in Acts 27. In this podcast, you will learn what he did to move from being ignored to becoming the greatest influencer on the ship and ultimately saving lives from disaster. What he did will inspire you to do the same in situations where your advice has little or no impact.
Successful people have a clear set of priorities. They find a way to do the important but not urgent parts of life. This message speaks of THE most important aspect of our lives to be prioritized. Get ready to be motivated toward the best things like never before through this message.
People tend to not mind you moving their dirt as long as they know you are looking for gold in them. As parents, leaders, and influencers, we are not called to be “dirt removers” in relationships, but we are commissioned to unlock people’s destinies by being able to see the gold in the dirt of people’s lives.
Those who succeed most also seem to fail most. Just like a toddler learning to walk, they see failure as the normal process of learning to walk at higher levels of living. This message will inspire you and equip you with the mindsets to embrace these failing moments with joy and purpose.
