We can’t see Him. Seeing is often believing so how are we supposed to trust that He exists? How are we supposed to know He is all around us?
Just believe? A feeling?
Is there evidence of God? Today, we are looking at two Bible passages that might just hold the answer.
Have you felt the tug of depression? Statistically, one in six women in the United States is on an anti-depressant. Not good odds. And all the self-help stuff often has only temporary relief, if not lasting negative effects. It becomes negative because the focus of all self-help goes back to one, solitary problem- ourselves. It always relies on us tapping into this strength we have somewhere inside us and suddenly snapping out of it. Then, when we can’t find this strength or it doesn’t last we are left feeling more deficient, more lost, less equipped, and more broken. Ladies, It takes a true mind-shift to gain mental peace and that can’t be found in self-help books, the latest motivational trend, or even within our strength. This mind shift happens when the most amazing moment comes and you realize you were never meant to be the strong one. In fact, you were meant to surrender. His will is strong enough to move mountains. All we have to do is give it to Him.
The guest we have on the show today has focused all her work in Christ to make that mind shift. Lauren Roskilly is a woman who has walked through the fire, been in the depths of depression and illness and has risen above on His strength. With a renewed sense of purpose, she now lives in His purpose taking direction from God alone on where to serve. Lauren is a mum of two beautiful children. She has a BA Hons in Health and social care and also a diploma in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). She is the author of the book, ‘Christian-based Cognitive Behavioral therapy’, a Christian Life Coach, she helps people to recognize and overcome limiting beliefs & negative mindsets and help them to discover and step into their God-given purpose.
his episode spoke volumes to me and willing to be it will for you also.
Are you worried that your prayers will always go unheard? How do we talk to God in an honest and authentic way and how do we get answers?
Well first off, God is not going to give us a yes to stupid questions. So don’t ask Him things like, “God, please make this crazy, blaspheming thing true so I can join the club and be happy.” I say this from experience, He is not going to say okay.
But in today’s episode, we are going to be talking about the number one way to hear from God and how you can know God is listening.
Spoiler- It’s not in the heeps of blessings. It all has to do with the peace in the storm.
Yes, there is definitely some relief too. You are free in so many ways, but you just made the decision to abandon everything you ever knew about God or religion, in one failed swoop. This is big stuff and now you are starting this faith journey from scratch, but with some baggage.
Today, we are talking about the 5 W’s of who you are now as an exmo and the 2 Big questions to ask yourself to help guide you on your journey of faith.
Who are you, what do you want most, what words do we need to redefine, what are your biggest worries, and if you could wave a magic wand what would you wish for?
Today is all about discovering who you are now that you left the LDS church and taking you from lost and confused to a life with Jesus.
Many of you are just coming to walk with Jesus. It can be tricky figuring out how to bring God into all aspects of our home, and our life. Today we are talking with professional organizer and certified holistic health specialist, Natalie Mel. What do we get rid of, what do we keep and what do we set our foundation on?
Natalie is going to walk us through all this and more about her walk with God and inviting God into all aspects of her life.
Have you ever heard this? I have. I admit I am a researcher. An analyzer. A total enneagram five.
I like to observe. Act first and then thin?- not so much me. I probably way overthink everything. And because of this, I was often called an old soul. I kinda prized myself on this.
That along with the teachings of pre-existence, and bam- I was convinced of my superiority, my understanding, my age, my imprint on this universe as someone who had hung out with God.
I had things in order. Even if I didn’t really have much faith in God, at least at one point we had hung together.
This is going to sound crazy to some of you who either did not grow up with faith, were in a different religion, or have only known the Christian faith.
But to others of you, well, this is going to sound very familiar.
Today we are talking about John 1:1 and how as we humble ourselves and recognize our size and truth. How BIG is our God?
Is there a true church? Do you have the courage to find out?
What is the church? I tell you what it’s not- four walls. And it definitely is not what we knew as ‘the church’ the only true church when we were LDS. What does the Bible actually say about what the church is? This is a big one today- We are talking about what is God‘s church?
New Years Resolutions…
We all start off with such good intentions and right about now most of you have already moved on and forgot all about the plan you were so fired up about. We make mistakes.
But what if you have made bigger mistakes than just eating that amazing breakfast sausage and cheddar sandwich from Starbucks you swore you were not going to eat this year? What if the mistakes you have made are causing you to question if anyone should ever forgive you? What if they are causing you to question your marriage, your worth, your life?
Where do you start? Where do you begin trying to make up for all the junk that was so bad?
I’m going to tell you a few things in this episode that may surprise you. What are the first steps after failure and where do we start after making mistakes- all in this episode.
We are all about to get together for a big ‘ol feast. Many of us are stressed about getting the meal on the table, the mess we have to clean up or what crazy inappropriate thing is aunt sally going to say this year. It is easy for us to get consumed by the worry of it all. The hustle and bustle of all the holidays leave us wondering what we do it all for.
This Thanksgiving let’s reframe it a bit and switch it back to what the word thanksgiving means in the OT.
It’s funny. When asked one of the number one things many people say is the most uncomfortable time during Thanksgiving is the prayer. Prayers should not make us uncomfortable! We are actually told in the bible not to worry about everything and to pray, yet the prayer is what has got us worried?!?!
That is backward if I have ever heard anything.
But when there is a specific way to our prayer that fits more in line with tradition than authenticity- well let’s just say it makes those who left that tradition/ religion/ church have moments of ugh, rather than peace with the Lord.
What all does a prayer need to include?
