But joyful are those who have the God of Israel[a] as their helper,

    whose hope is in the Lord their God. 

-Psalm 146:3-5 (NLT)

Put Focus on 5 and Put Your Trust in God

I have spent nearly 10 months redefining and rerouting my goals and resetting my immediate action agenda. With only 60 days left in 2020, it is time to roll out some new initiatives. In the meantime, I am steady cranking out videos whether for my weekly Bible study with Pastor Powell or Coffee & Chat with Rev Bruce every Saturday. One surely beneficial element to all of this productivity is the increase amount of digital products available for download on the Life Path Multimedia electronic storefront like my Bible study outline or even a sermon presentation. I have fallen behind a bit on the podcast, but I am tackling it one by one.

I usually take the advice of the Simple Preacher or Unashamed of Jesus when it comes to looking at the Bible through a different perspectives and fresh voices. Yet, I took another systems approach and strategy for tackling the remainder of 2020. My focus on 5 has allowed me to set my goals and actions in alignment. I have been able to line up my top tier goals and identify 5 for me to focus on the next 60 days. I used Brian Tracy’s Goals! and the Brian Moran’s The 12 Week Year. I will update you on my progress with these goals periodically in future posts.

The Bible study on God & Government has been going well. We have seen more views in the past on our study of the Temple of God. However, I believe that God & Government’s highlight was about Christ Criminalized and Crucified. After all, I got to where my highly controversial t-shirt for that episode.

Live@Lunch Bible Study

This upcoming lesson is the final lesson of the series. It focuses on not trusting or bragging on human leadership. It hinges upon 1 Corinthians 3:21 and Isaiah 2:22 along with Psalm 146:3-5. The series has not kicked off with as much fanfare as the likes of Bunkerville or even that of Steve Dennis and his blog.

More Good News to Come

As we wrap up 2020, I am staying busy. I still have a book of poetry in the works and I am almost done editing some more digital products. Those things are yet to come, but I am promoting the fast-approaching weeklong campaign for Life Path Mobile Ministries called Giving Thanks by Giving Back. More details will be released this week.

Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.

Henry David Thoreau

I came across Michelle Lesley’s blog while searching for something else, something utterly and entirely different. I don’t know if I could count it as an accident. I just know that I can count this as a discovery in my book, and that carries a lot of weight as I evaluate where and how to spend the limited commodity of time.

Michelle Lesley got me thinking when she served up the blessing of social media for believers. I looked to the Simple Preacher, hoping his feed would clear my head, but he merely indirectly confirmed some of this woman’s findings.

Stop for a moment and consider what this Christian blogger did by simply adhering to the content calendar credo and posting an item for Throwback Thursday. She used a name that is attached to both our faith identity and our answer for who is our Savior.

“Live out your beliefs. . .”


In a word, our identity is summed up. We believe, so we are to live differently. Yet, we are called out and expected to live differently due to those beliefs. We walk out our beliefs, and we put our faith on display in the flesh as we engage other believers and those who remain in unbelief.

“. . . and you can turn the world around.”

We are now identified differently because we live our beliefs. Since we believe, we live out those beliefs and accomplish the miraculous. I don’t mean water into water. We achieve the impossible before the eyes of the hopeless and helpless. We overcome the insurmountable as our enemies and other bystanders look on with awe and amazement. We survive and stand out as miracles of the Maker.

We are to “turn the world around.” And I believe that to be part of our calling. That is why I started my podcast Coffee & Chat with Rev Bruce. That is why I launch the video live stream for Coffee & Chat with Rev Bruce on YouTube ad Facebook.

It is not enough for us to say that we believe. We need to get over it and get on with it. We need to get busy and get to what the Lord has for us to do. If we are called to “turn around the world” as a result of our beliefs, then we can definitely do so by living differently, offering inspiration and encouragement for people from all walks of life to better themselves.
