Episode 29: Trials – God has a purpose!

In this episode, Jason helps us better understand one of the big reasons why God allows trials into our Christian lives … because He’s chiseling us into better men, manly men, godly men, men of impact.

And to be that kind of a man, God has to send us to the school of pain!

As many of you know, Jason has been battling chronic Lyme Disease, and it’s been one of the most agonizing and frustrating trials that he’s ever been through in his entire life … but God’s been teaching him some powerful stuff that will help you with your own trials.

All of us who are following Christ are going through something hard. That’s just life on the narrow and difficult trail. The only easy day was yesterday!

Episode 27: This world .. this ain’t home!

 

In this episode, Jason reminds us of the fact that this life here on earth is a journey, that’s taking us to our final destination … our true homeland … the new Heaven and new Earth! If you want to be a man who truly makes an eternal impact upon others, you have to keep your focus on your true homeland!

Many years ago the great thinker and writer, C.S. Lewis, made this profoundly accurate statement …

If you look at history you will find that Christians who did the most for the present world were just those who thought the most of the next world.”

That is why God commands us as men (in Colossians 3:1-2) to keep continually seeking and setting our minds on the things above, not on things that are on earth.

That is what all the great heroes of the faith did (see Hebrews 11).

Who or what are you most focused on?

What are you obsessing over?

Episode 26: Embrace the Suck! – Battling Lyme Disease

 

In this episode, Jason shares about his personal battle with Lyme Disease, and he reminds all of us that no matter what we’re going through we have a daily choice to make …

Because happiness is a choice – joy is a choice – thankfulness is a choice – and faith is a choice.

In reality, we’re all going through something … and complaining will not help … wallowing will not help … self-pity will not help. All that junk does is make us feel worse.

When life sucks, as men, we have to embrace the suck and trust that God has a purpose for it … He’s ultimately trying to chisel us into better men!

Five passages of Scripture to meditate on when life sucks …

  • James 1:2-4
  • Philippians 4:4
  • 1 Thessalonians 5:18
  • Romans 8:28
  • Proverbs 3:5-6

Here’s a list of the vitamins and supplements that Jason is taking 2x daily to help overcome Lyme …

  • MultiVitamin
  • Super Magnesium 400mg
  • CoQ-10 50mg
  • Vit C 1000 mg
  • Vit B-6 200mg
  • Vit D-3 2000iu
  •  Omega 3 Oils
  • Turmeric 500mg
  • Probiotic 100Bill CFUs

 

Episode 24: Memorial Day … Don’t take it for granted!

 

The freedoms, privileges, opportunities, and protection that we have as Americans … they didn’t come for free. They came to us by others paying a great price … many paid with their own blood … many paid by losing their body parts … many paid by losing their inner peace and joy and will need counseling and medication for the rest of their lives … and many paid by being killed – they gave everything!

In this episode of THE GRIZ PODCAST, Jason honors Navy SEAL, Adam Brown.

Episode 23: The Apostle Paul … a hero among heroes!

 

Do you have any heroes?

On this episode of the GRIZ podcast, Jason brags on one of his heroes (the Apostle Paul). What he suffered and endured for the sake of the gospel not only impacts and inspires us as Christian men, but it also flat-out humbles us.

Paul was a hero among heroes.

Paul was a real man.

Paul was grizzin baby!
