[BLOG POST] Seven Tips for a Successful and JOY Filled Fall

Welcome back. You belong here.

Seven Tips for a Successful and JOY Filled Fall

  1. Put God first, it is GOZO, do it now while you’re young
  2. Keep the end in mind – who do you want to be at 25? 55? 70?
  3. Keep moving towards your goal, opportunities go away quickly
  4. Live out your God given adventure, take God-risks
  5. Make better friends, go deeper with current ones
  6. Change everything if you want to see radical change
  7. Let go of material things, nothing lasts forever

VERSE: Ecclesiastes 12

1 Honor and enjoy your Creator while you’re still young, Before the years take their toll and your vigor wanes,

2 Before your vision dims and the world blurs And the winter years keep you close to the fire.

3 In old age, your body no longer serves you so well. Muscles slacken, grip weakens, joints stiffen. The shades are pulled down on the world.

4 You can’t come and go at will. Things grind to a halt. The hum of the household fades away. You are wakened now by bird-song.

5 Hikes to the mountains are a thing of the past. Even a stroll down the road has its terrors. Your hair turns apple-blossom white, Adorning a fragile and impotent matchstick body. Yes, you’re well on your way to eternal rest, While your friends make plans for your funeral.

6 Life, lovely while it lasts, is soon over. Life as we know it, precious and beautiful, ends.

7 The body is put back in the same ground it came from. The spirit returns to God, who first breathed it.

8 It’s all smoke, nothing but smoke. The Quester says that everything’s smoke.

Who is David Trigueros (Trig)?

I have been married 22 years to my beautiful wife Rachelle! We have three amazing teens, one is a top model and successful entrepreneur. I’m a pastor, speaker and content creator. In 2013, I recorded my own CD of original songs, then in 2014 I wrote an e-Book called “How to live an Anxiety Free Summer” and an article called “High Anxiety” for Leadership Online.

But it has not always been easy…

I grew up far from home, dealt with fear and anxiety, went through a terrible war, was unemployed for nearly a year and have felt fearful and insecure.

But through grace, love and discovering my God-given adventure I have achieved everything I want in life. Now I’m here to help you achieve GOZO and succeed in life!

So In 2010 I started my own media company called #GOZOtv! with thousands of views online. l love my job and now I get to do what I was created for, now I feel like I’m living on GOZO street! (GOZO btw, means JOY!)

[BLOG POST] Do you ever feel forgotten by God?

 

Forgotten_umbrella

Welcome back. You belong here.

Do you ever feel forgotten by God or wonder if He hears your prayers? He does, we often just struggle to see what He’s up to.

I was just reading a beautiful passage in the Scriptures about the God Who Hears, where Hagar’s son Ishmael is about 14 years old and because of a family argument, he is about to die of heat stroke in the desert of Paran.

#139 Seven Reflections on my Prayer Retreat and How to Lead from a Place of Love Not Anger

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 2.16.40 PMListen in iTunes here or at link below.

Welcome back. You belong here.

Earlier this week, I went a week long prayer retreat, it was amazing. What did learn while there? Did God speak to me and most of all can He do the same in you?

During my time away, God revealed one big truth – “lead from love not anger”. Wow! That’s pretty in your face right? But that’s how God speaks because He knows what we need.

#138 How to Find Time to Go on a Contemplative Retreat

Screen Shot 2016-05-22 at 2.16.40 PMListen in iTunes here or at link below.

Welcome back. You belong here.

We all long for time alone with God but who has the time right? Work, home, life, grocery shopping, doctor’s appointments, it all gets in the way of prayer and meditation.

But when we keep going and never take time to be with Jesus, we run the risk of losing our focus, our joy or worst yet, we might lose our way. And even though we go to church every week or read our Bibles (maybe), going on a prayer/contemplative retreat will bring life to your weary soul.

In this episode of Pastor Trig’s Daily Devotions, I talk about 5 Ways to Take Time To Do a Prayer Retreat, they are:

Luck, Karma or Prayer? by davidTrig

2078304297_f94d0959be_b-660x438Welcome back. You belong here.

Sometimes we hope for the best in life, we hope for good Karma, we wish for good luck, we carry a rabbit’s foot (some people do) or cross our fingers, all in hopes of things turning out our way.

Ever been there?

But God moves when we pray, doors open when we trust that God hears our prayers and that He is working on our behalf and according to His will.

“Why I Don’t Like Holding Hands During Prayer Circles” Part 1 – Excerpts from a book I’m writing called “Finding Grace Through Anxiety: From Anxious Freak to Fearless Lover”, by david Trig

ToM_EnsoCircleWelcome back. You belong here.

I stood in the circle holding hands even though everything in me kept yelling “Run!”. I’m not much into holding hands during  prayer circles, they make me nervous, but here I was holding hands in a prayer circle.

Our class had been talking about some pretty heavy topics, themes of racial reconciliation, White-privilege and corporate confession and now it was time to pray and get real with one another. Fun.

As people began to cry and talk about some pretty heavy stuff, I could feel my body tense up. My hands got clammy, my shoulders got tight, my breathing got heavy. I didn’t experience a full blown panic attack (it was close), but it was your typical fight or flight response.

—-

“Leave!” “DEPORTED!” “You don’t belong here!” Those were the voices inside my head. All I wanted to do was run , but I couldn’t. After all, it wouldn’t be  professional to leave a classroom full of graduate level students trying to make a difference in the world! So I hung in there.

Finally, it was time for the prayer circle and the inevitable hand-holding. I was dying. All I could think of was, “don’t say anything stupid”, “maybe you won’t have to say anything at all”. All the memories of racism, isolation and fear were coming back. Feelings of not being wanted, of not knowing if I could stay in the country rang inside my head. Everything in me wanted to get angry and feel the rage inside but instead I chose to say nothing, I chose the silent treatement. But it wasn’t working.

You know that feeling you get when you get picked last during basketball? Or that horrible moment when you have to say “something nice about someone else” and you’re the last one people talk about? That’s how I felt being in this circle, my world kept getting smaller and smaller.

Then it happened.

Part 2 – tomorrow…
