The great mystery of faith is broken down and explained. Nate examines several Biblical text to bring about a solid foundation you can stand on. Be motivated inspired and blessed! God loves you!


Faith is never blind as many often think of religion. Faith is not irrational self-confidence or that which is in the possession of gullible followers of every celebrity within a religion. Those who follow a false faith, a faith as weak as leaves blown in the wind following anything and everything that feeds the emotions. Let me digress faith no doubt is self-confidence. That said, it is a self-confidence that is only attained when self is eliminated in the abyss, the mind of God, the place in which all things become everything and everything nothing. Yes this is where faith is found. Blind faith, is not faith at all. Faith is a gift in which no one can conjure. It is granted to us by God. A miracle, who can eliminate the self? Who can possess the self-confidence needed for such elimination. None can claim such a feat, and in this is the mystery.

The church of fish, that is what we are. Follower the leader, do not question, God forbid you do not believe everything. Believe it or not we probably lie to ourselves more than we lie to others. Or, I could be telling a lie now? What kind of person do you want to be? A follower or a leader? A person who seeks material gain? Or someone who seeks what is greater? Listen up!

We live in a country in which it cost more money to imprison someone for a year than it does to send them to college. This is disturbing when the majority of inmates are not exceptional threats to society they are just poor misguided souls in need of change. I also talk about the prison of the mind. Paradise is how you perceive it regardless of where you are at. I hope that you listen with an open mind and be set free today!

What is your situation today? Is it what you want? Or, are you waiting for some life-changing experience to occur to rid yourself of your current situation? Let me tell you this, whatever your situation, be it good or bad is brought about based on your thoughts.

You only understand the world you live in because of your senses and how you interpret your response to those external forces. Deep inside you have a calling a purpose dare I say a WILL. “What is it you want”calls the creator to man, but man refuses to listen. We ignore our abilities and live in the mire of the life we have created.

Today is your opportunity to put aside misguided thoughts. You may feel you are lying to yourself. I tell you that it is not a lie, it is your ego resisting. The master Jesus called it “the flesh” his disciples called us to “crucify the flesh” this self destruction brings about rebirth. Rebirth of whatever you want! This will not be your ego, this will be what some call the will of God, others your purpose.

You are not who you once were, you are great and full of power and authority to change your life and the world around you. Know this, know thyself and let it be.

Most people know I love my little pup. One thing that cracks me up is that he cannot jump up on the couch. It is almost as if he can’t jump at all. Yet, I know he can jump, I know he has the ability, I believe he just doesn’t know he can.

Think about that in respect to our lives. How many of our lives are ultimately dictated by our beliefs? A large percentage! If we do not believe we can do something, if we do not even know we have the ability to do what has never even entered our cognition then we have know hope to accomplish what we do not even know we have the ability to do.

Today let us start to think outside of the box. Let us take chances, start believing in ourselves, and praying for clarity. Let us start believing we are worthy of our hearts desire and move towards accomplishing such deeds. Have a great week and God bless!

What is it to be a Christian? Is it saying a prayer? Living a certain way to fit in with other “Christians.” If you are a politician and quote verses to get votes, is that Christian? Maybe it is just simply being human?

Nate uses the teachings of Jesus so that we can live a life which is one of decreased self, and increased God.

Nate gets personal with his own struggles with his son. With his own pain as a father. How our perfect Father has been put through pain and suffering because of our rebellion. Yet God is love, the never ending love of the Father is beyond our understanding. It is time to except his love.

Nate has fun on this episode of The Backyard Preacher. Just hold on and enjoy the ride!
