  1. Mel, my name is Tyler. I met you (and your doggy) at the hotel after the motocross show in South Dakota! It was so great to chat with you. You’re so kind:) God bless and safe travels!!!
    Ronnie, I got to meet you for the second time in my life. The first was in the early Mulisha days.. I’ve always been a huge fan! Thank you for being such a great role model!!! I’m about 20months sober, walking with the Lord and life is good. I’m even riding dirtbikes again!! God bless both of you, Tyler

  2. Loved watching this. Recently recommitted to God. I have been struggling with this area in my life. One thing I waa so used to doing is rushing into things. This was very helpful and inspiring. Thank you❤🙏

  3. God indeed knows the perfect timing and he also knows who is meant for you. Because believe me the amount of times I started to become attracted to a person and for some reason shortly after life just leads me the other way, wasn’t meant to be 😂

  4. I’m a little late to the video but this was a wonderful topic and you both came together to provide and excellent response. I really wanted to start dating and I started using a Christian dating app. I began talking to a guy and I prayed on it. After the second day. It was revealed in my dream that he wasn’t the one. I remember feeling so heart broken while sleeping. I woke prayed again and thanked the Lord because after that day he really showed me a different side and I was too excited to see what was happening. Again great advice!! God bless you both ♥️

  5. Waw this is so beautiful, especially the part about following God's will and His timing, and understanding that God can stop this friendship/relationship and we have to trust Him, waw

  6. Glorify and praise the LORD Jesus and our Heavenly FATHER! Hallelujah! Here is my testimony: 

    I got caught up in spirit 3 years ago twice, fought the serpent with Michael (they are both farrrrrrr larger than our planet btw), got caught up to GOD the Ancient of Days on the clouds – HIS robes are literally made of clouds with lightning all around(HIS voice sounded like rushing wind/trumpets or a multitude I suppose). Met angels on more clouds, they are beautiful tan skinned brown-gold hair no wings, and was birthed by some kind of spirit woman back to my body (complete fleshy birthing experience). Received a fire baptism by falling through all the levels of hell all the way to the lake of fire, pretty sure it was JESUS who dunked me and pulled me out but I couldnt see behind me, Samael (I think, they never give names so its difficult to figure out whos who except JESUS) asked me if I was ready, like I had a choice. (you fall and die all 49 levels or so, its pitch dark till you hit the ground). Opened the book of the prophets?? Not sure, again nobody tells you anything, and heard a Heavenly song (still remember it and could recreate it if necessary) and then saw what looked like a perfect crystal diamond the size of a mountain – blackness all around it.Witnessed the angelic battles in spirit playing out all around us. Saw the LORD Jesus above the waters he kind of morphed to a younger version of himself (looked like a 13 year old version of him – he looks like the akiane kamarick picture she drew at 8 years old, just way more beautiful – spirit of truth maybe?), pulled me up to a white area which I took as what he meant when he said being in the spirit of the Living GOD, its whiteness and goodness as far as the eye can see, and dunked me back saying the words telepathicly: "and ye shall be as oil in water"). Fought the princes of hell with JESUS spirit inside mine, over pesach. It was like a whirlwind of demons around me on my deck (I had my fire poker with me – iron rod I suppose) and I rebuked them, forgave them, and told them I loved them. Overcame them by JESUS telling me they were testing my resolve and obedience to him and the LORD GOD… I can go crazy in detail if you want me to. I dont tell anybody these things, but it seems like the right time to give my testimony for JESUS, and fulfill scripture for HIM whom I serve and would most definitely live for. 

    Not bad for a 33 year old jobless white guy, divorced with 2 young sons lol (2 Corinthians 12). If you want to email me for more questions: edwardclindblom at gmail. I lived it, I'm not ashamed of my LORD and what he did for me, and I think Christians all over the world would want to hear what happened, and why they feel funny for this pesach.

  7. Thank you for your time and care in putting these videos together. Sadly many people are feeling hopeless in this wicked world. We can have perfect hope, and peace, but only through Jesus. He gives hope to the hopeless. Hebrews 6:19  Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil; 
    Mark 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. 
    One day we will take our last breath here on this side of eternity. Our soul will live for all eternity, and we need to make a choice on this side, before our last breath. If we reject Jesus we will go into hell a firey pit. If we trust and accept Jesus we will have a home in Heaven for all eternity
    John 3:15  That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 
    John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Please call upon Jesus today.

  8. Something I have been struggling with is that I feel like everyone around me is getting married (especially since Christian girls get married really young around here) and having these beautiful fairytale lives while I'm here, still single and never having been in a relationship and men usually running the other way when they see me.
    it just sucks looking at other people and wondering, what if by the time God wants me to get married, my husband is already taken? Or having other intrusive thoughts like "Why does God love these other women more than me?"

    Idk what I'm trying to say, my heart is just aching and I wanted to get this out to see if anyone else feels the same way. Can someone give me advice from a Christian perspective?

  9. Hi Ronnie hi Melissa, it's been a while since I commented however I am a regular viewer. I look back and remember when Ronnie told me y'all were looking for an editor and all I could do was pray for one to be found. I have watched how far you have gone since then which I feel is only affirmation from the Lord. Truly amazing.
    I continue as do many others to share your vids and use then for some teachings, as I have said many times before, your teachings, conversaions, and pod casts bring everthing down to a level of understanding that all can grasp and say uh ha! I see it now. Continued prayers for you both.. Blessings, Kory.

  10. I have a question. 🙋🏻‍♀️ what about if you’re already engaged? What is it a good amount of time to be engaged/how long is too long or how fast is too fast? Since you already know that’s Gods best for you?

  11. Guys I am watching this video and I was thinking about my relation first with myself and with my partner.
    I am from. Perú and I saw the testimony of Mel many months ago. God bless you and all your family guys. Are a blessing to me.

  12. This is good and I'm in my 60s and still need to learn what is the best way to handle a relationship. I believe it is important to be friends first, always keeping our eyes on Him. May I suggest another channel called Life To The Fullest. This couple recently just got married and have such a love for the Lord.

  13. Timing is hugeee and very calculated. I recently met a guy where we were mutually attracted to each other and wanted to start something and we are part of the same community so I could have met him at any time in the past three years but God chose now to introduce us, knowing that I'm going to be in and out of town for a while due to school…. Basically He knows we weren't meant for each other and he put a physical distance there between us to help stop it from progressing.

    Just know that usually if it's right, things will work out smoother to put you together whether it's through similar scheduling, location, etc.

  14. Thank you for such blessed messages guys! We are taking time in this 2 weeks to ask God’s wisdom for our relationship, so there is no texting, no calls, no meet up during this 2 weeks; kinda missing him honestly but I think i really need to learn to be patient and trust in God wholly! Whatever is the answer, He knows the best for both of us! Praise God!

  15. I just wanted to tell you guys something that I know you should hear. Your videos are anointed. I literally feel the presence of God when I start to play one. Its obvious you have strong prayer lives BC you can just feel it when you sit down to start watching what God has to say through you. I just love y'all. I feel like I'm just hangin w my friends fellowshipping when I tune in.

    Thanks guys. Keep growing your ministry and letting God use you. You ARE reaching people.

    Love y'all!
    Rachel from TN

  16. Great message today guys! I appreciate Ronnie directing us to James 1:5. That was the verse I needed today. I loved Mel's illustration of the lamp and how it only lights a small part of the path. We have to trust God for the rest. Thanks guys!

  17. I cant tell you how discouraged Ive been, it seems like forever praying waiting hoping for certain things and it so bad I just written it off. His timing is perfectly good but mentally exhausting hard
