Spiritual Foundations

Why do followers of Jesus experience tough times? Keep these 3 things in mind:

  1. We don't see what God sees.
  2. We don't know what God knows.
  3. Nothing surprises God!

“The Lord directs the steps of the godly.
He delights in every detail of their lives.”
Psalm 37:23

“Either God is doing a work in you, or He is using you to do a work in someone else.” Joel Osteen

  • Kirk Bowman

    Ray, I would be interested in the mastermind group.

  • Kathleen Thompson

    Hi Ray,
    I love the quote from Psalm 37. It’s so easy to forget that.
    Laughed out loud when I heard you say Work Faster, until you unpacked it and it made complete sense.
    I am interested in the mastermind group. Also interested in a full-day one later in the year if you have it.

    Thanks for answering my question on the podcast. I loved your answer about what you like best. Keep up the great work. I don’t miss an episode! I put a review on Stitcher.

    Ray, I am not familiar yet with itunes. I have been on several different itune podcast “sites” including yours and want to subscribe but cannot seem to get it completed. It keeps asking me for some type of “apple password”. A brief explanation of how to subscribe to your itunes site for people like me that are a little behind may increase your following quite a bit more. I’ll be onboard, that’s for sure. Some suggestions are maybe a link on yur site or a brief explanatiion in one of your podcasts, etc. Thanks.

  • Mastermind with Ray? Count me in.

  • Kraig Radesi

    I am definitely interested in the mastermind group!

  • I would want to be in the mastemind.

  • I have always said I would rather waste money than time. If I had to choose between spending time on something or money, I would choose spending money to save time.

  • Thanks for all the time-saving tips in this podcast, Ray. I would certainly be interested in the Mastermind option that you’re considering.

  • Yes, I’m interested in the mastermind group. I need to join one.
