023: JESUS OWNS YOUR PROBLEMS.
Focusing on your problems comes naturally to us. It takes a conscious choice to be focused on what God can do through them. Sometimes it can be very hard to see or perceive how things are not only going to “work out” - but how a problem could ever be something you look back on & see it as something good or beneficial in your life. But with God - even your worst moments can become your best... :) REMEMBER, Jesus owns your problems! VISIT MY WEBSITE: KEELACRAFTAMBROSE.COM

STOP CHOOSING YOUR PROBLEMS
It is so easy to stay focused & even find problems... it is however not common to be a solutions minded person. I believe that often we are submitted to our issues & problems & we trust in them - even over God at times. God wants more for us... He wants us to have a life that is founded on His power - not colored with our problems.  This message was spoken at Elevate Life Young Adults on March 12th 2019.

TAKE IT BACK
Vulnerability signifies value. Valuable things are usually vulnerable. Thieves do not break into empty houses… You are carrying something good inside… If you didn’t have anything good, you would be left alone. When you shut down vulnerability, you shut down opportunity.  Most of us need to stop listening to the facts of your situation, and begin to speak Gods truth over it!

021: WOUNDS INTO WISDOM
God doesn't want us to stay hurt or wounded. He wants to turn our pain into purpose & our wounds into wisdom. Don't let yourself stay stuck in what was... allow God to mature your emotions & show you what He can do with what you choose to trust Him with... lay you weakness at the feet of Jesus & let Him exchange what isn't working for something that is useful in the Kingdom. "Wisdom is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her." (Proverbs 3:15) “Don't turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you." (Proverbs 4:6) "If you prize wisdom, she will make you great. Embrace her, and she will honor you." (Proverbs 4:8) "Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life. If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you score wisdom, you will be the one to suffer." (Proverbs 9:11-12) "To acquire wisdom is to love yourself; people who cherish understanding will prosper." (Proverbs 19:8) "Jesus grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people." (Luke 2:52) "If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking." (James 1:5) VISIT MY WEBSITE: KEELACRAFTAMBROSE.COM

WHAT ARE YOU FIGHTING FOR?
When you know what you’re fighting for – YOU DO NOT GIVE UP EASY. You have to not only know why you are fighting - but who you are fighting... Winning battles can begin when you decide to stop fighting against yourself & you take a stand against the enemy. God is waiting for us to understand not only who WE are, but who HE is - & then simply walk in victory… you can only win – with God! YOUR WOUNDS CAN TURN INTO WISDOM. & you can win EVERY TIME with God on your side.    To obey God is the beginning of victory.  This message was spoken at Elevate Life Young Adults on January 29th.

020: GREAT VS. LOSER DECISIONS
I think that to be great - you must make great decisions. You cannot be great & make loser decisions... If you want to be great, start thinking: "does this decision contribute to my greatness?" & if it doesn't - reconsider the choice.   Verses From This Episode:   Matthew 7:13-14 - Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.  Proverbs 14:12 - There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.  Proverbs 19:21 - Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.  Proverbs 16:9 - The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.  Isaiah 30:21 - And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left.  Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 - The end of the matter; all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, with every secret thing, whether good or evil.  Philippians 4:8 - Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.  Galatians 6:7-8 - Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.  Proverbs 3:1-35 - My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  Proverbs 3:5-6 - Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. VISIT MY WEBSITE: KEELACRAFTAMBROSE.COM

ALL YOU HAVE IS NOW
God has SO much for you RIGHT NOW. He has given you EVERYTHING you need to accomplish what God has called you to do. We have to choose to use what we have been entrusted with, so that God can add His power to our situations & circumstances. Don't look back - Stop getting distracted on what may be ahead - & instead look to what possibilities God has RIGHT NOW for you!

GOD IS SMARTER THAN YOU!
This message came out of personal stories & lessons from my life on relationships. So often early on in my life, I thought I knew how to choose better than God. & I wanted my way more than I wanted to follow Him & Trust Him ALL the way! I think many times we think we trust God until it gets uncomfortable - then we try & take back the control... The BEST place you can be is in the WILL OF GOD, not where you selfishly want to be in this season.  (This message was spoken at ELC Young adults on December 11th, 2018.

FACTS OF LIFE
We hear so many “facts” in life... but why don’t we talk about the FACTS that matter most: 1. You are unconditionally loved. 2. You were created for great things. 3. You are not alone. 4. You have a choice to make with what you have been freely given.  This message was spoken at ELEVATE LIFE YOUNG ADULTS on 11/6/2018.  VISIT MY WEBSITE: KEELACRAFTAMBROSE.COM

016: WHY IS DOING THE RIGHT THING SO DIFFICULT?
Doing the RIGHT thing is NEVER easy - But it is ALWAYS worth it.  James 4:17 - "So whoever knows the right thing to do & fails to do it, for him it is sin."  Romans 12:21 - "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."  Isaiah 1:17 - "Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause."  Colossians 3:17 - "& whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."  Romans 7:15 - "For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. 1  Corinthians 11:1-2 - "Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. Now I commend you because you remember me in everything & maintain the traditions even as I delivered them to you."  VISIT MY WEBSITE: KEELACRAFTAMBROSE.COM

IF YOU CAN'T FOLLOW - YOU'LL NEVER LEAD.
GOOD FOLLOWERS MAKE GOOD LEADERS. IF YOU CAN’T FOLLOW WELL, YOU CAN’T LEAD WELL. TO GIVE ORDERS, YOU MUST FIRST KNOW HOW TO TAKE THEM. • Being a good follower requires you to act like a leader… lead yourself first. FOLLOWING JESUS IS… ABOUT JESUS NOT US!  This message was spoken at ELC YA at Elevate Life Church on 10/16/2018.  VISIT MY WEBSITE: KEELACRAFTAMBROSE.COM

DID GOD REALLY SAY?
THE ENEMY WILL ALWAYS TRY TO GET YOU TO QUESTION THE WORDS & ACTIONS OF GOD. HE IS HOPING THAT YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE POWER THAT IT CARRIES & HE IS COUNTING ON THE FACT THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW THE POWER YOU CARRY THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD. The greatest way we see able to defeat the enemy is through knowing God's Word & using it in our lives & situations.  This message was spoken @ Elevate Life Young Adults 9/25/18.  VISIT MY WEBSITE: KEELACRAFTAMBROSE.COM

013: LESS IS MORE
Some of you have been striving, seeking, working, & trying year after year & you haven’t been able to make things happen the way you want. What if trusting God & waiting was the answer - not working more or harder. As you Trust God - wait & see all that He will do! God can do it faster & a whole lot better than you can. “Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles. They shall run and not be weary. They shall walk and not faint.” 
(Isaiah 40:31)

My most constant prayer is asking God for help. He is our help & He wants to help us — & yet we have a huge part to play in Him helping us! John 14:16 teaches us that the Holy Spirit is OUR HELP. It lists all the ways we can recieve from Him... but we have to be willing to access that power.  VISIT MY WEBSITE: KEELACRAFTAMBROSE.COM

YOUR STORY IS GOD'S STORY.
As a Christian, our life can be directed & shaped by God. But we are the ones that choose who the main focus is in our story. The truth is that our story is God's story - but it is up to us to invite Him into our situations & circumstances & follow Him fully! God is ALWAYS with us & for us. He has a plan for great things, even in the middle of what can seem so dark. This message was preached at ELEVATE LIFE CHURCH on 7/22/18. Visit my website: https://keelacraft.com

Fear grips so many of our minds & lives... we think about the worst possible thing that could happen & live or react as if it has. Instead - what if we used the word of God as a guide in our life?!!
