In 2014, I was ready to end my life. A life of partying quickly became a life of addiction and despair. Thankfully, God had another plan. This is my story, and new pages are being written every day. Life is beautiful - every broken part of it.👊 Instagram: @zackgudzan
Well. This was supposed to be Week 2 of our Bible Study. As soon as I started talking, God redirected my spirit to just be honest with you and tell you where I’m at. Through it all, His grace is sufficient.
If you aren’t spending time in prayer, you are selling yourself short. There’s nothing more precious than Jesus. My hope is that this prayer will light a fire in you. A hunger. A longing for true relationship with your Maker. God wants your heart. He made your heart. Your purpose is to glorify Him. Start doing it. I love you. Deeply. -Zack
I’m literally on a walk as I record this episode - enjoying nature, appreciating life, and talking with my Creator. It’s good to do that. All He ever wanted, from the very beginning of Creation, was a walking, talking relationship with us. Hopefully this time of reflection will help remind you of what’s truly important. Much love! -Zack

I love social media. It also drives me insane. The other day, I caught myself mindlessly scrolling through Instagram, and the Holy Spirit called me out.

As always, please message me on Instagram @zackgudzan and let me know you listened to this podcast. It would mean a lot to me!

Someone sent me a message on Instagram today, asking for help with addiction. He also noted that he isn’t religious.

We live in a world of overwhelm. So much to do, so little time. Yet...we do nothing. What’s that about? Does overwhelm cripple you sometimes? God puts dreams in our hearts for a reason. It’s His will - and it’s up to us to carry that out.

After a few weeks of “blah”, I felt myself light up again today. Being back on the road is giving me that inner drive (pun intended), and I freaking love going West. Here’s to gratitude, kindness, and all the things that make us smile.
