Our lives are shaped by our thoughts. That's a little scary, right? If we let our thoughts float through our heads unexamined or if we let others plant thoughts unchallenged, we can move into a negative space in a split second.
Cheri and Amy reflect on ways to take responsibility for our thoughts, and it turns out that we should aim to disappoint some people. Cheri shares a counter-intuitive flash of insight that can change your life!
Even the strongest faith can become battered and start to sink when painful circumstances blindside us. How can we respond in a way that keeps us afloat? We have a shocking number of thoughts in a day (make sure to listen to the episode find out how many-- you won't believe it!), and only we can choose if they are positive or negative.
Tracie Miles, author of Unsinkable Faith, gives practical steps for choosing thoughts that will sustain us in harrowing times.
As Cheri and Amy processed last week's interview with Tricia Goyer, one of her quotes kept floating to the top, “Our greatest moments of wholeness are actually when we’re sharing our weaknesses.” What does it mean to live out our imperfect stories in a way that impacts the world? How can we help others see Jesus through our brokenness?
If we want to be world-changers, we have to learn to live our own authentic but flawed story. We can do this!
Tricia Goyer, our guest this week, reached a crossroads years ago. Would she just study God's Word or would she push past the fear and obstacles to live the life described there? For she and her husband, living the truths they were finding in their Bibles meant some huge leaps of faith!
Listen to find out the steps Tricia took and the treasures she's found in obedience. You'll be inspired to walk out your faith in brave new ways!
