Mark Collins

As believers, sometimes we fall into the trap of comparing ourselves to others. Don’t shout me down when I’m preaching good… amen… It’s true…think about this for a minute… Women will observe what other women are wearing, how they fixed their hair, etc. Men will compare themselves to the success of other men… better cars, better neighborhoods… dream jobs – and more… But believers should not be comparing themselves to anyone… we each have a calling given to us by God. We are called, number one: to be ourselves and, number two: to serve HIM in all that we do. So my calling is not the same as your calling; someone else’s calling – even if it is the same “JOB” – is not the same calling as someone else.  By that, for example, let’s use me… my calling is to “Get the Word Out” – that is our ministry mission statement.  We accomplish the mission by assisting others to “Get the Word Out” about what THEY DO for THEIR CALLING.  Hence, the podcast interviews. There are other Christian podcasters. Some teach, some discuss prophecy, some interview others… but WE (my podcast) focuses ONLY on helping someone to share their calling with the world – by helping them promote what they do via a podcast interview. Amen! Anyway… our guest today has a calling on his life to offer Christian men Biblical answers to overcoming fear & uncertainty and to allow them the opportunity to “unleash the Hero within.” Amen! Mark Collins is a pastor, coach, husband, father and the author of a great book, “Life Mastery – Living By Design, Not Default.”  He is also the associate pastor of his church and has created several online courses and tools to help equip Christian MEN to achieve the impact they are meant to have. Amen! Now, ladies, don’t turn us off just yet.  This is something that will help you relate, encourage and support your husbands as well. You may even learn a thing or two about WHY he does some of the things he does. Amen! To find out more, help me welcome to the program Pastor Mark Collins!  Mark, thank you for taking the time to join us today! First question I always start with is this… other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Mark Collins?” What got you interested in pursuing this line of coaching? I alluded to this in the introduction a little bit… that you believe men think we need to “measure up” to some standard in order to be loved and valued.  You call this, “Your Character is Calling…”  Can you explain that for us? I truly believe every person has a God Given Calling.  How do you help those you coach to discover God’s plan for their life is more than their current experience? I know I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my life… (to which my wife would give a hearty AMEN)… but you share how to “Change your life, one thought at a time.”  Can you explain that for us? Let’s shift to your book for a minute, “Life Mastery – Living By Design, Not Default.”  Why did you write this book? Who is the intended audience? Age, demographics, etc.? How does your book help them to overcome the fear and uncertainty they face – especially in this society today – of standing for their Christian Faith and leading the life they want in Christ? Mark, this is some great information… how can someone obtain a copy of your book, “Life Mastery – Living By Design, Not Default?”  Is it on Amazon? This has been so interesting. If someone has a question, would like more information or would like to get in touch with you (maybe to do an interview like this..), how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you? I’ll put links to all of this in the show notes below. Folks, YOU are not an accident. God DESIGNED you for a specific purpose and He needed you to be alive at this point in history. He did not need you 50 years ago or 100 years ago and He does not need you here in another 100 years (if Jesus tarries that long). He needs you here – NOW! Amen! You need to find out what that calling is and learn how to start “Living by Design, Not Default!” Amen! Drop down into the show notes and reach out to Mark Collins. Ask your questions, check out the information. Visit his YouTube channel where he has a lot of great information on his videos. But be sure to click the link below to order his great book, “Life Mastery – Living By Design, Not Default.” Do it right now, while you are thinking about it. Amen!
