This week we’re talking about those moments when we’re feeling afraid and not enough. It’s a topic I’ve been wrestling through lately, and I wanted to share with you some of what I’ve been wrestling through and learning in this area, and I’m guessing I am not alone.

My hope for this episode is that in those moments when we’re feeling afraid, or feeling like we’re not enough, we might shift our focus and perspective to remember … God is with us. He is our shield. He answers when we call, And He is our sustainer, even when we don’t realize, or remember, that He is near.

In  this episode we’ll discuss:

  • Feeling afraid to dream
  • Feeling like we don’t deserve success
  • Feeling like we are not enough
  • How we long to know a sure plan
  • The struggle of knowing God’s will
  • Longing for reassurance that we won’t fail
  • How life can feel like we’re on a foggy road

We will then be reminded:

  • God is with us
  • He answers us
  • He shields us
  • He never loses His grip on us
  • He has a plan and nothing is a surprise to Him
  • He is our portion and our strength
  • He is a good, good Father
  • His ways for us are perfect
  • We are deeply loved
  • We are enough because of Christ

SCRIPTURE:

 But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
I cried aloud to the Lord, and He answered me from his holy hill. Seals
I lay down and slept; I woke again, for the Lord sustained me.
 I will not be afraid…
Psalm 3:3-6 (ESV)
