Hope in God – Speak Life Podcast 113

Hope in God – Speak Life Podcast 113

Psalm 42:5 King James Version (KJV)

Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.

Episode 113 – Speak Life Podcast

This is the podcast that never made it. I will figure out how to get it onto Pandora and all the other players that my friends are using to listen to the http://Speaklifepodcast.com.

The subject is about hope this week.

The hope as I am speaking of today is based on the strength of his faithfulness. God has never failed me. I have failed Him. I have not given him props for what He has done for me. I have done stupid stuff in his presence and acted like He didn’t see it. I have blasphemed. I have done all manner of evil. And even on my best day, I have fallen short of the Good that He is.

But God, so loved me that He gave me a million chances to get it right. I had to first acknowledge that He is God. I had to acknowledge and accept the gift that He gave me in the person of Jesus of Nazareth. I had to ask for forgiveness, based on the sacrifice of his Son. To take the place of my mistakes in His presence. I had to repent in my heart, in my spirit that I know I don’t deserve this but gladly and willing accept it. And then claim Him. My God, My Father, My savior, mine.

And that starts your relationship. I had to get things in order. And its not one way. when I moved toward God, HE moved towards me. He was always there I just didn’t know it. He helped me before I could speak the right words.

He let me know I was on the right path. I had to start learning His ways. I had to start being sensitive to the move of the Spirit in my life. it was a growth thing. I still mess up but He is quick to correct me and I can tell when its Him now and not me or the world.

I started looking at things, and people different. That is my hope for you.

So how do you get Hope in God or anyone for that matter. We grow confident based on past performance, knowing their character, having confident expectations. Expectations is the event that is considered most likely to happen.

But if you don’t have a relationship with someone, do you know them? Can you count on them? Do you have any confidence is a stranger?

I don’t think so.

Based on that logic; why do you ask God all the time for stuff when you have no relationship with Him? You know of Him? But do you know Him for yourself?

psalm 42:5 ESV

Why are you cast down, O my soul,
and why are you in turmoil within me?
Hope in God; for I shall again praise him,
my salvation

And in case you didn’t know, my twelve year old iMac gave up the ghost this month. I lost all my special effects, music beds and work flow for podcasting. I know I should have backed it up. And I had another laptop that is almost as old that is failing too and is too full of junk to allow anything new. I have a couple of links for fundraisers here. If you can please consider helping me.

After Attending the 2019 Podfest Expo

After Attending the 2019 Podfest Expo

The difference between leveraging and pivoting.

After a safe and prosperous trip to Orlando, Florida where I attended the 2019 Podfest Multimedia Expo, I had a few new ideas on how to start profiting from my knowledge and skillset.

Pivoting is to turn from what you were doing and do something else. Leveraging is taking advantage of what you have and using it to move you further.

Podfest Multimedia Expo is an annual convention of online (digital) content creators. Experts in the YouTube, podcasting and social media mix and mingle with folks of all levels. This one was the fifth year and had over 1000+ attendees.

For me, it is like summer camp. I get to see people that are making 50K+ a month doing this stuff and encourage those that are newer than I at it. This year I got the opportunity to me the master of ceremonies for the keynote events and show off my skills.

FUN

I had a blast. I sang. I told stories and kept the keynote speakers on time. I presented them with sincerity and related to the audience. It was easy to do because I knew the audience really well. I know what it feels like to travel to a conference, sit for hours, anticipate and search for relevancy.

Podfest Expo is usually smaller than Podcast Movement which has grown exponentially. It has the same kinda of people in it with more sponsors and a corporate vibe. This year it will be in August, also in Orlando, Fl. I usually only attend one so they’ll have to miss me this year unless I get a special invite and a plane ticket.

The trip was prosperous for me because I got a chance to meet new friends, say hello to old ones and learn what I could do to “leverage” what I have and know to monetize a platform. It is my desire to use this to make Kenn Blanchard Co profitable.

I had a pivotal moment when I was explaining to my friend that I wanted to continue to grow my online ministry but was challenged by finances. He reminded me that God gave me everything I need to succeed. I had an aha moment.

I just need to focus my energy. I need to be deliberate in my social media post. I need to grow the audience where the business meets the media.

New Moves

I have a podcast editing business with no clients but that is ok. I am saving that skill set for the pastors and ministers I plan to help set up podcast under a new network called ApostleRadio.net coming soon. In the meantime, I am going to continue to edit and produce warriorcast.com my sons show and the new el Segundo Edicto (el2e.com) a Second Amendment and American Constitutional Rights podcast for Spanish speakers.

I pivoted from being a speaker at Podfest to being an Emcee. That was a complete change from the facilitator of learning, the sharing of ideas and passing on of knowledge I have gained from podcasting for 12 years. As the emcee I went straight into entertainment mode. This was entertaining with a purpose.

The leveraging part comes into play as I take my skills and experience as a recognized online media person known for gun rights and the Black Man With A Gun and start yet another show that will focus on sharing security information. It is a strength I never utilize. I’ve been protecting people all of my life.

Stay tuned as I build How To Prevail.
