144. A Life Without Worry

Put your worries behind you, and don’t even be worried that you’re worried! There’s too much life and promise to live every single day to its fullest. And that's the truth coming from Matthew 6: 25-34, Jesus' sermon. When Jesus says, “Don’t worry”, it’s in the context of those teachings. The people who don’t have to worry are those who seek treasure in heaven, those who have made Jesus their Master and those who are living in a love relationship with God the Father.

This is such a great reminder for all believers. There is a Life Without Worry, and it's yours if you choose it.

143. Women Who Changed the World

March is Women’s History Month! This episode celebrates great women in history that have influenced Sue Duffield's life as a believer, a singer and minister of the gospel. Her mother and grandmothers set such a standard of faith. And then there was her mother-in-law who was an exceptional woman of faith, whose words and presence still hover over her.
The one thing that they all had in common was prayer. And in the world of honoring women that have done good deeds and have sacrificed much are women in Sue's history that have made prayer the most important thing.

This is a tribute to every praying woman. Do you ever wonder if God hears your prayers or if He listens to women at all? In the Bible, women have played an important role. Mothers who have raised God-fearing children who change the world as well as sisters stepping into dangerous jobs, help while working alongside female friends and neighbors who share God's love and make it their mission to pray and believe God for the impossible.

In every culture of these scripturally heroic women is the discipline of prayer.

142. I Presume You Already Know This

With both levity and concern, this episode features the overwhelming ability we all have with presumption. Host, Sue Duffield shares "Tips to Remember Before Jumping to Conclusions."

1. Sometimes it is easy for tempers to flare in traffic. When something happens that catches you off guard, take a deep breath and collect your thoughts. Remember you are God’s child and want to be a good witness, even on the road.
2. Take 1 Corinthians 13 to heart, and remember that love:
* Is not arrogant or rude.
* Does not insist on its own way.
* Is not irritable or resentful.
3. Remember that love also believes the best about others. Don’t assume if someone makes you upset that they deliberately set out to do so.

 “Don’t jump to conclusions – there may be a perfectly good explanation for what you just saw.” – Proverbs 25:8, MSG 

From Charles Swindoll to Justin Beiber to Janel in that Grand Rapids Coffee Shop, this episode is packed full of biblical wisdom and insight as to why we continue to "assume" or "presume". The Suebiquitous Podcast is an extreme and honest step of faith in a virtual fake world. Anyone, at any time, can grab a microphone, load up an episode on the internet and call it a “faith podcast” when indeed they're living an alternative lifestyle, not even coherent with their own words. But Sue's hope and joy is to grow with you every single time we meet, and challenge you to take a grip of the gospel like never before. Make Jesus the Big Deal He is.

Thank you in advance for giving and sharing this podcast on your social media sites. www.sueduffield.com is the place to stay in touch, and since you now know Sue's heart even more, Jesus really loves you, and "I presume you already know this…"

141. For The Love Of February

This month as we celebrate Valentine’s Day, Black History Month, Groundhog Day, Play your Ukulele Day, National Carrot Cake Day, Work Naked Day (!), Farmer’s Day, Ice Cream for Breakfast Day, National Marriage Week, Laugh and Get Rich Day, National Pizza Day, Armed Forces Day, National Shut In Day, Abraham Lincoln’s Birthday, National Football Hangover Day, (13th), Susan B. Anthony’s Birthday, National Cabbage Day, National Crab Stuffed Flounder Day, National Love Your Pet Day, President’s Day, Shrove Monday, Ash Wednesday, National Chili Day and National No Brainer Day…. whew,,,
Let’s just say it’s National LOVE MONTH, and it SHOULD start with you and me!

This episode is a clear message from the book of Romans 12: 9-16 and  seems, at first glance, to be an unconnected series of fragmented commands; a “rag bag” of miscellaneous exhortations. But a closer examination reveals that these verses completely affirm what love looks like in the Christian life. This theme of love is not hard to find: Love must govern all our relationships.

140. Drift Ye Not

If you can picture Sue Duffield in a kayak adrift in the middle of a lake without a paddle, then that memory and depiction could coincide with a spiritual revelation that, quite frankly, is evident of many ministries, non-profits and Christian leaders today. Adrift. They've either lost their paddle or their anchor. This episode gives fair warning to those who have forsaken their original calling. There's reasons why some believers literally just drift away. But there's also a biblically prophetic reason too, that in the end times - some will just fall away. Be encouraged and be strengthened by not letting your missional calling drift. 

Also mentioned on this episode is the book, "Mission Drift - The Unspoken Crisis Facing Leaders, Charities and Churches", written by Peter Greer and Chris Horst, available on Amazon. This is a useful book for key leaders in churches, pastors, nonprofit agencies, and social service agencies. "Drift Ye Not!"

139. Tea Bag Therapy

There's such a strong correlation between the healing properties of used tea bags and the healing balm mentioned in the scriptures. And what a fun way to present the gospel too, knowing that (1) tea bags are great for chapped lips, (2) puffy eyes, (3) reducing swelling while stopping the bleeding, and (4) to get rid of pungent odor. Think about that for a moment: In the Kingdom, God's Word has the power to keep our mouths clean and to keep them shut when they need to be shut; God's Word has the power to reduce the self-inflicted puffiness and the healing of spiritual wounds; and God's Word has the power to keep us from stinking it up!

Then Jesus walked up to him and asked a strange question, “Do you want to get well?” (John 5:6b) Answering that question takes a lot of guts, because if you really do want to get well, then you'll really need to follow Jesus. Tea Bag Therapy, if nothing more, will make you look at tea bags in a whole new light!

138. Hope You Have UNStar!

While taking a trip in a rental car, Sue accidentally pressed the "OnStar" button several times. She was eventually reprimanded by one of the OnStar associates, saying, "Ma'am, don't do that; do you think you're a superstar or something?"

From that experience came this episode, "How to be an UNStar". Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis, Jr's super hit, "You Don't Have to be A Star" is the setting of this post. What a super explanation of what it takes to really be a star in the Kingdom of God. For the performer who just can’t wait to be noticed, Jesus strongly urges (much like the lyrics to the song) to come as we are. He takes us in. We’re rejected, hurt, filled with jealousy, envy, and even succumbing to the comparison factor. But to HIM, we’re worth what we have within. No where is it stated in this pop hit, “You’re worth what you have because of what is on the outside.” So why do we work so hard on everything exterior, yet leave our insides deplete of maturity and spiritual hunger? BTW, spiritual hunger is a good thing.. Check what's inside your heart.

Have fun with this one. And take a quick look at how you represent Jesus. He's the only true star.

137. The Truth Will Make You Mad

How dare Sue Duffield suggest that someone should not speak “their truth!” But what if this is “her truth?” Shouldn’t she be free and able to speak “her own truth?” Your truth (and her truth) may not the be the actual truth, and that is not just her truth, but the truth. How confusing…truthfully. LOL.

Episode 137 dares to challenge situational ethics. What does the truth do to people? Is it motivating to hear the truth, or is it something that makes you mad? And why does it seem that absolutes have disappeared and evaporated into thin air? And why can't we talk to each other anymore without getting hot under the collar?

The pun and truth of those questions stir up the realities of Sue's childhood, recalling her grandmother saying, “Well, If everybody jumps off the Walt Whitman Bridge, does that mean you will too?” (That was usually in response to Sue asking or wanting to conform to her friends’ desires or wants.) Or, the truth of this saying, “Go ahead, play out in the street in traffic. Your truth will be - you’ll get hit by a car!”

Desiring biblical truth and living by the gospel of truth, is liberating. And if it makes you mad, there's a good chance truth has hit your last nerve of denial. There's an infinitum of scripture in this episode. It's so much better sharing the truth of God's Word, than opinion.

136. The Patty Duke Flu

Long before podcasting was a thing, blogging took over the world. It’s both fun and sobering to go back on the internet search and find articles, blog posts and pieces that Sue Duffield has written over the years. Go ahead - we dare you - just google Sue Duffield blogspot, and you’ll get more that you’ll ever want or need! Now we're not saying that podcasting or vloging has taken over my medium of writing, but we will say that Sue doesn't do it quite as often as she used to.

Thirteen years ago, Sue wrote this post called “The Patty Duke Flu”, and since the new year gave her a bought of upper respiratory craziness, we thought it would be fun to revisit that blogpost, and maybe add a few spiritual and historical facts at the end. So, if you started off the new year feeling under the weather or suffering a serious illness, you surely will want to listen to this hopeful episode today.

135. Merry Twixmas!

What's become of the week between Christmas Day and New Year's Day? To quote the Jimmy Webb song, recorded by Frank Sinatra, "Whatever Happened to Christmas?", it could be even worse than this...

Whatever happened to Christmas?
It's gone and left no traces
Whatever happened to the faces or the glow?
Whatever happened to Christmas
To the Christmas way of living?
Whatever happened to the giving
The magic in the snow?
Remember the sights and the smells and the sounds
And remember the cheery call
Remember how love was all around
Whatever happened to it all?
Whatever happened to Christmas?
The bells in the streets are ringing
Whatever happened to the singing?
The songs we used to know
Whatever happened to Christmas?
And when it disappeared from view
Where was I (where was I), and whatever happened to you?
(Whatever happened to Christmas) and you?

Sue Duffield takes you on a journey of faith on how to make that "tween" week many call "TWIXMAS" now, a time of reflection and preparation for the new year. It’s a good thing to hunger and it’s a good thing to “feel” the pain and joy of experincing or wanting something deeper. Be encouraged to go deeper; don’t just put away your Christmas decorations, and rush through the week.. take time to invest in your heart and soul and spend more time with Jesus, even if the people around you aren't all that interested. Make those goals and stick to them for 2023. Sue will be there right with you along the way!

134. Stories Of Christmas

Sue Duffield loves Christmas story books. Today's episode is a compilation of an ebook entitled, "Santa's Greatest Gift - The Truth about Santa's Identity Wrapped in the Spiritual Meaning of Christmas", by Rebecca Gittrick Whitecotton, published by Bright Treasures at www.Smashwords.com. Also, as Christmas stories come and go, there is still nothing like Luke's Gospel, chapter two, read from The Passion Translation. Merry Christmas from all of us here at the Suebiquitous Podcast and Sue Duffield Ministries. Don't EVER let the wonder of Christ's birth and His presence in your life disappear.

133. The Christmas We Downsized

It doesn't take much these days to realize, we do SO much better with less. Downsizing Christmas seems to be a trend but it surely isn't new. Episode 133 will take you on a journey of counting and categorizing the amount of decorations you might have. Sue Duffield also remembers a time when cutting back on spending during the holidays wasn't so much as a choice but a necessity. But we all know the truth: creating memories and making special times for your loved ones doesn't always have to cost a fortune. With every cut-back, there's an opportunity to replace that void with something even more special. You'll love Sue's line in this episode, "downsizing Christmas, but upsizing the Gospel." You might want to write that down. Christmas should be a time of sharing our stories and and especially sharing our faith. Always always upsize that. So maybe downsize the clutter you don't need, but never forget to upsize Jesus to a world who hardly knows Him.

132. The Jeff Pearles Story

It's great to have Jeff Pearles return for a second time on this podcast! Jeff has had a stellar career in Gospel Music singing bass for the King's Heralds, appearing on many Gaither Homecoming videos, as well as a studio singer and voice-over talent for audio books and events. But all of that could have come to a screeching halt with his diagnosis of Covid-19 and double pneumonia. The truth is, Jeff almost died, and Linda (his wife) both battled a severe bought of serious lung problems as a result of Covid-19. When someone contracts COVID, the lungs get small and stiff, which explains why many experience shortness of breath and massive fatigue. His oxygen levels plummeted, while his heart rate tripled. The doctor gave very little hope to Jeff as he lay for three days in a hospital bed. However, Jeff began to pray that God would send someone to him that would show him hope. And literally, within hours, "hope" AND a miracle walked into that room.

This is a very personal testimony of God's unfailing intervention for a man who has dedicated his life to music and ministry. Jeff has started to share his healing story more open and often in his public performances with many positive responses. This is his first podcast interview with Sue Duffield, telling this amazing story of recovery.

131. Let's Bake Some Cookies!

No matter what your favorite Christmas cookie is, we all know the truth - you just can't have Christmas without cookies! In this episode, the Duffields take the cookie journey and recall the memories that go along with every recipe, every crazy kitchen caper and every tasty morsel that just can't be explained. Peanut butter blossoms, Archway's Cherry Chip Nougat (no longer in production - stupid!), homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pizelles (Anise flavored), petit fours and ITALIAN COOKIES from Serpes Bakery in Elsemere, Delaware and Oakmont Bakery cookie trays/macaroons/Iced Sugar Cookie Christmas Trees, Molasses Cookies and Gingerbread Cookies. And then there's Crumbl cookies.. ALL this and more right here.

But stick with Sue Duffield long enough on this episode to hear her experience an incredible miracle while baking and stepping outside to get a breath of fresh air to see the moonlight. Making memories forever.

130. Three Amigas! Debra Talley, Mary Anne Oglesby-Sutherly & Sue Duffield

(Simulcast from the "Aging Angst and Alleluias Podcast" Episode 20)

Since Sue Duffield produces several podcasts, she had a fun idea to "merge" two episodes that have an abundance of hope, laughter and joy for the season. Listen and laugh as Debra Talley (Gospel Music's sweetest and smoothest alto - ever) and Mary Anne Oglesby-Sutherly (founder and director of the Veranda Ministries in Gallatin, TN - a ministry of caregiving for those with dementia) tackle some of life's most pressing issues on aging. This quick and honest friendship between these three has evolved during the most critical of times. Just as loneliness can hurt our health, friendships can actually improve it in far-reaching (and sometimes surprising) ways. Studies have found that bonding with friends can strengthen the immune system. It helps us recover quickly from illness, lower blood pressure and the risk of heart disease, and sharpen memory. And since Mary Anne's hope is to keep the connection of friendship open and honest, it's not a surprise that both Debra and Sue agree - it can also improve their odds of living longer, so Mary Anne can take care of both of them! LOL. 

But by far the greatest and funniest aspect of this very episode is the unscripted ending, when they attempt to sing "Silent Night", with the delay of WiFi and network. It's a scream and one for the books!

Tuesday, November 29, 2022 "A Christmas To Remember" Benefit Concert and Auction at Three Oaks Church, Gallatin, TN 5pm featuring Tribute Quartet, Angie Primm, Lauren Talley, Gene McDonald, Riley Harrison Clark, Mary Anne Oglesby-Sutherly and Jeff and Sue Duffield
