Episode 139: Prepare Your Message – Part 1 (ponder & pray)

May 8, 2023

Has God given you a message that you need to share? Maybe you’ve been asked to speak for the first time and you have no idea what to do or how to start. Perhaps you have been sharing the same message for a year and need a new fresh message. Whether you’ve done this hundreds of times before or are just getting started, I’m going to share the way I craft a message. I follow a three-step process centered around 3 P’s. If you’re curious, then you’ll want to keep listening…

 
This is part one of this three-part series on the 3 P’s of crafting a message. In this episode, I’m diving into the first two: Pondering and Praying. Ready for some inspiration?
 
Highlights from this episode include:
 
  • Your process for crafting a message
  • Fixing your eyes on Jesus
  • The power of forward-focusing faith
  • What pondering really means
 
What is your story? What are you praying and pondering over? It would be great to hear about what God is reminding you of or what Scripture is bringing up in your life. What’s that one the Lord is highlighting to you?
