"I Want to tell you how much I enjoyed your message on 100.7 last Saturday evening. Just when I thought I might have to miss part of it because a friend asked to come over.... "But God" had her work late and get to my house at 7:15. "Our circumstances do not define God." I Loved that. (Wish I knew how to spread that message better). Your voice was smooth and intentional and kind and full of conviction in your mission
Thank you for the encouragement that God is at work . Sometimes I forget how Big our God is. But God is a great reminder.
A Listener sent us some steps to take when confronted with difficult conversations:
1. Remember there is no condemnation in Christ.
3. Focus on not being defensive.
4. Focus on the facts.
5. Do not defend yourself.
6. Speak plain and step into the conversation.
7. Watch your emotions, that is the enemy telling you lies.
8. Don’t create expectations.
9. See this through the eyes of love.
After listening to several of your podcasts I began a deep dive to understand my low self-esteem and how that had impacted my relationships. What I had not considered before now was how my low self-esteem affected my relationship with God.
I have been a Christian and studied the Word for years. I had an intellectual, a mind’s understanding of God’s love. It occurred to me that my mind’s understanding of God’s love for me never truly connected with my heart, and at the root of this was low self-esteem.
I realized that over the years I had become legalistic in my thinking as it applied to my faith. I was convinced that I must not be a good Christian and I would beat myself up for not acting, thinking, or feeling more Christ like. The enemy would tell me I was a bad Christian and that I was not worthy of God’s love. I developed a spirit of unforgiveness toward myself which kept me in bondage from truly understanding God’ love for me. Low self -esteem prevented me from having an authentic and intimate relationship with the Lord.
One morning while driving to an appointment, for the first time in my life I felt a freedom, a freedom to be open and honest with God no matter what I thought or felt. A freedom to be my authentic self. God revealed to me that I no longer needed to fear being myself. He had broken the bondage of low self-esteem and unforgiveness which opened my heart to have an honest relationship with Him and trust Him with all aspects of myself. I believe I truly received His love into my heart, and I am now free in Christ to be myself. Thanks be to God.

A story snippet is a brief excerpt that highlights a struggle, an area of pain, a cry for change that ends with a recognition of who God is and what He can do.
Much like David crying out in the Psalms. He often starts with an expression of his doubt, fear, trouble, pain, disappointment, frustration, and so many other real displays of his humanity but his psalms end in a recognition of God and praise “to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20).
