In the church, there’s a lot of talk about not being afraid, but I wonder if our language regarding fear is incomplete.
The Bible is filled with commands to not be afraid, but this message is never delivered with condemnation or shame.
What would our world look like if we dared to examine our beliefs, experiences, and worldviews so that we understood what we were bringing into a situation?
I don’t have to make myself responsible for everyone else’s actions and I don’t have to be a victim: I can occupy my God-given space in the world and take responsibility for what’s been entrusted to me.
Something powerful happens when someone comes alongside you and says “I’ve been there, it does get better, and I’ll be here with you until it does.”
I am beginning to understand just how freeing it is when life isn’t all about me.
Join me as we examine the Gospel writers and what their viewpoint can teach us about the Lord.
Your name isn’t an accident, but connects with your God-given purpose!
Your response to direction reveals your view of God.
I encourage you to ask the Lord for clarity about what success means for you. What if success looks different than numbers or revenue generated or clicks on a page? What if success looks like connecting with another human being?
