Two Strategies for Defeating Anxiety & Fear

Two Strategies for Defeating Anxiety & Fear

If I'm being honest, the last few months have at times felt like a hurricane or, worse yet for me, a vast snowy desert, but they are neither. They are just new lands along on the path I chose when I decided to follow Jesus like I mean it.

Truth is, Jesus told the disciples, before they got in the boat, they were going to the other side. So they were going to make it. Dead calm was a bonus.

Jesus was gracious enough to show a bunch of terrified fishermen just who they were dealing with. It was a lavish gift given to a bunch of skeptical, anxious humans who did everything possible to not deserve it.

Same Jesus. Different day.

Consider for a moment, how your life would look if you showed up everywhere with a deep awareness of your royal identity

  • What deals would you reject?
  • What words would come from your mouth?
  • What words wouldn't?
  • What would you believe was possible for you and your family?
  • How would you use your incredible leverage to change the world?

Again and again, God repeats his promise to help us, to extend his righteous right hand to go before us, to make a way, where there seems no way. He promises to do that for anyone who asks, but if we remain hermetically sealed inside a world we can easily handle, we never give him the chance to prove it.  

If you're bored with your life, it might be that you're twiddling your thumbs inside a life you finished crafting long ago. Quit redecorating it. Knock some walls out. Or maybe even sell it and move. 

Demolish Your Way to a Better Story

Demolish Your Way to a Better Story

I am celebrating my 7th birthday into this awake and interesting life. I tell you all this because my friend April interviewed me for her podcast, which came out yesterday. In it I talk a lot about April 21st and what it means to me. The timing of the podcast, to me, is just God poking his head in to remind me, He loves me and that I was smart to trust him in this process.

I write because I want the same same freedom, vibrancy and hope for you. That's the purpose of Girl Catch Fire, so that you to might discover the God who created you so you can figure out what he created you for.

And then go do it.
