This week is focused on planning. On Monday we looked at you know being a planner versus not being a planner. Wednesday we looked at planning to spend time with God every day. And today, we concluded with those things you can’t plan. Even though there are things you can’t plan, you can plan to rely on God. Have a wonderful weekend!
I am a planner! There I said it, I am a planner. Some of us are planners and then there are those that are able to just go with the flow. Where do you fall on that spectrum? Are you able to celebrate the differences and embrace the differences, and sometimes step out of your box and step into the other person’s way of living? I hope you’ll join me today and the rest of the week as we look at planning.
Today’s podcast takes a deeper look into the best friend that you will ever have in this world, Jesus Christ. Faith, hope, and love are the foundations and require requirements that we need in this world and the greatest of all of them is love. May you spend this Thanksgiving eve making memories, celebrating your friendship with Jesus, and drowning out the darkness with all the good that is available.
This week we are going to look at the importance of family and our lives and choosing to celebrate and focus on the good things that are happening in our lives and around us. We take a look at first Corinthians 13:13 and find encouragement that the three things that remain our faith, hope, and love!
We wrap up this weeks podcast series on thinking of others first and I am encouraged to know that so many people have embraced this week series and then as you receive encouragement, comfort, love, sharing from the Holy Spirit, tenderness, and compassion, that you take that and turn that into a joy that you share with others being in one spirit and one mind with Jesus Christ. You are a catalyst for change and you have the ability to change the outlook of someone’s life today!
Today we look at a verse from scripture that reminds us that God is the gardener and he will cut and prune those things in our life that need to be taken away or cut back so that we can be the best version of ourselves, and the most blessing to others. In order to think of others first, we need to listen to God and be focused on what he is calling us to do, not what we want to do.
With Thanksgiving a week and a half away, it is a great time to pause and think of ways that we can bless others, and put them first! May today’s message inspire and encourage you, and may you be the first in a cycle of change in encouragement throughout the week. You never know where your one act of kindness will go, or how far it will spread.
As we wrap up this week, remember to be generous with all you think, say, and do and if you don’t have the money to do what you want to do, find a way to be generous with the gift of time. Use the unique gifts that God’s given you to be a blessing to others.
Today’s podcast continues our journey in the generosity and I’m gonna tell you that at first I thought my gosh I’m feeling in my presentation, then I paused and prayed and I think with God’s help I turned it around and I’m praying that this message will speak to you.
This is been a challenging and tough week as we looked at the desires of our heart and how they align with God and his call on our life. I hope you took time to follow through on some of the strategies and thoughts to ponder that were shared. May you be blessed and fruitful. Have a great weekend!
This week we are looking at the desires of your heart and setting goals. Have you taken the time to put your goals in writing yet? Have you written your goals so that they were plane and understandable to anybody that might see them? Who is your accountability partner? Listen more on today’s podcast.
So often we set goals at the end of December for the new year. This week I want to challenge you to look at October as a time to recognize your desires, set goals, and align them to what and where God has called you.
As we wrap up this weeks podcast series on Outlook, we look at how you are anointed, commission, and called for a special mission from God. What is your outlook? How does your outlook a line with God’s calling on your life? It’s a great time to reflect and renew yourself with a positive outlook that is a down payment of things to come.
Today’s podcast goes a little deeper than Monday as we look at being lonely and how this might affect your outlook. I encourage you to find a time to listen to today’s podcast in the quietness of your home, your car, or wherever that is that you may be able to have that conversation with God so that you don’t feel alone any longer. May the outlook you have the Eternal, not in the moment.
This week we will look at the outlook you have towards life. Instead of viewing the things that shock you, interrupt your plans, or get in the way as reasons to be miserable, I encourage you to look at them as opportunities to share your faith and model your faith.
This week has been a challenging podcast for us, right, because it’s been about focusing on renewing who we are. It’s been about renewing who we are in the eyes of Jesus and with the person we see in the mirror. I hope as you move into the weekend, you are inspired and motivated to be the best version of yourself and continue the renewal process in the weeks to come.
Today we focused on creating a pure heart, a clean heart and looking to God and using Psalm 51:10-12, as a prayer to God, for his strength and provision as we focus on the renewal of our heart and life to be the best version of herself that we can be.
In life, if we are to be lifelong learners and the best version of ourselves that we can be then we need to spend time reflecting and praying about ways we can improve. This week we’re gonna look at renewal. What is an area in your life where you need a renewal? Be sure to listen to today’s podcast on why you don’t want to grow weary and later in the week as I encourage you to renew and be the best version of yourself that you can be!
This has been a deep week in the podcast world for me, I pray that it has touched your heart and you took away some time this weekend to put some goals in writing, to help you remain dedicated and determined to be the best version of yourself!
In life we need to trust God and give him the credit. As we seek his will, we have a choice to either follow where he leads us or our own ideas. God is not a bully, I encourage you to take time to pray, reflect, and most importantly listen! God always answers.
This week we will look at dedication and determination. You may feel like you were in a funk at one point or another in your lifetime, it’s your determination and your dedication to focus on moving forward that will help you overcome the funk and celebrate life to the fullest!
Today’s podcast is an honest look of the cost of perseverance and the cost of not following what God has led you to as you persevered. How often do you find yourself saying hi? Why are you, candy, trying to do this on her own?
I’m going to warn you, today’s podcast went much deeper than I had planned yeah I’ve come to understand that if that’s the message God has placed on my heart, someone listening needed to hear it today. I pray that God speaks directly to your heart and whatever you’re beginning is a blessing to him, and you.
This week series challenges you to start somewhere, start at the beginning. Genesis 1:1 reminds us and tells us that God created everything, that includes you. Where were you begin? What is your moving target?
Today’s podcast is short, sweet, and a little scattered. You have one exhausted, lifelong learner, and anxious educator podcasting to you today. I can’t wait for school tomorrow and my mind is racing so fast, I apologize for the scattered Ness of this podcast and I hope that you are able to take something away and strive to be that lifelong learner.
This weeks podcast will look at the benefits of being a lifelong learner. Are you a lifelong learner? Why or why not? Take a listen and feel free to leave a review and share with your friends and family, have a wonderful week everybody!

Today we wrap up this week series on Hope and the greatest hope I have to share with you is that you are never ever alone. Your hope is that on your darkest day and in your darkest situation, God is right there with you. Hope is bright. Hope is eternal. Hope is a necessity.
We were never alone when you have help, today’s podcast takes a look at Hope through verses in Hebrews in first Corinthian’s, in darkness hope is the light connecting you to Jesus and helping you get through.
This week we look at the importance of how we think, what we do, and how we live need to be acceptable in the eyes of God. It is possible in Psalm 19:14 is a prayerful meditation that we can use Daley as a reminder, a mantra, to live for God and not for the world.
Do you will be faced with different situations, people, and things that will require you to except what you believe is unacceptable. You don’t need to do this alone, and according to the Bible, God will return a blessing to you because you bless someone else.
We focused on rest this week, are you doing your best to rest? To read your Bible? Attend worship service? To pray? To spend some time sitting quietly? Are you taking a Sabbath day of rest each week? Listen to today’s podcast and you will be able to do this at the end, with God’s help.
Next week we will look at rest but for today, we wrap up the series on relaxation and how the ultimate goal is to relax in Jesus. We’re not called to relax and in our faith but we are called to relax and the knowledge of knowing God is with us all the time.
Who do you trust and rely on so you can relax? Let God work with and through you as you relax in the knowledge of His provision, protection, and care for you. He's there for you. Today's podcast looks at Psalm 62 :1-8 and how when we trust God, it's possible to relax. Catch me on Facebook: @LivinwithLisa, One Sister's Jorney: Keeping it Real, http://LisaMBuske.com

As you move forward in life it is important to remember why you are doing the things you do and how God has impacted and changed your life. Use this remembrance as your diving board to share joy and love with others and allow God to "make you" willing. Oh yeah, wait until you hear about how I ask God to "make me", and I appreciate it. Who thunk it?!
