BB&JT: Plea and thank you for ratings and review & for spreading the word via social media and word of mouth…

BB –  We are talking today about … A Lesson In Casting”…

So JT What does that title bring up to your mind?

  1. Bob – POINT: Casting is what we are admonished to do with our burdens and anxieties … but most of us play YO YO with God as we cast and then reel it back to take it on ourselves… BUT in doing so we miss out on His promises… in more ways than one…


Psalm 55:22 (ESV) — 22 Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.


  1. JT ------ OK THEN LET’S TALK SOME MORE ABOUT THAT as we bring up… WHAT’S NEW –  as we open Bob’s recent blog from bobbrubaker.com …

  1. JT This is the PowerBreak Podcast, I’m JT along with Bob Brubaker and this is the  –– time for some questions and answers. Feel free to submit your questions by EMAIL TO JT@bobbrubaker.com and we’ll get to the answer on an upcoming PowerBreak. Podcast…




It’s obvious we tend to cast and reel back our burdens and anxieties … SO HOW CAN WE STOP PLAYING GAMES WITH GOD?


  1. Bob & JT discuss


1 Peter 5:7 (ESV) — 7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.

Psalm 55:22 (ESV) — 22 Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.

  • Including the negative promises


James 1:5–8 (ESV) — 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Romans 14:23 (ESV) — 23 But whoever has doubts is condemned if he eats, because the eating is not from faith. For whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.



Romans 8:26–27 (ESV) — 26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. 27 And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

  1. JT – Question Two… “FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT”


How can we mentally prepare to cast our burdens without reeling them back?

  1. Bob & JT discuss
  • Picture
  • Plan
  • Prepare
  • Pray


  1. (JT) Third Question …. From the physical side of life…

Mistakes in training. We can all look back and see specific mistakes we made in training over the years… so what are some of those blatant errors.

  1. Bob and JT discuss…
  • Overtraining
  • Taking on too much – (viz. 3 marathons in six weeks // 2 Ironman and 2 70.3 races in a year)
  • Trying to follow someone else’s schedule
  • Allowing group rides / runs dictate training
  • Neglect of proper fueling


JT’s list


Bob’s final comment – It takes discipline ….


Point: DISCIPLINE MAKES THE DIFFERENCE --- in all aspects of life
