So often we want to experience the joy of being a part of something bigger than ourselves, something that makes a difference in the world and in the Kingdom of God. But fear and doubt creep in and whisper convincing lies in our heads that keep us from walking into our calling. As we take a deeper look at Esther’s story, we will learn the power behind prayerfully saying “yes” when God calls. Her story will empower us to leave fear and doubt behind and exchange them for boldness and confidence in Christ!
There are times in life when we cannot see what God is up to and how he is working in our situation. It can be hard to hold on to hope when the situation before us seems impossible. But confident hope knows that even when we cannot see the outcome yet, we can have confidence in God’s good future for us.
Do you believe that God loves you? I mean really loves you, as you are right now? When we see ourselves through the eyes of Christ, we begin to experience God’s love and that changes everything. Understanding how much we are loved by God is foundational to our identity and how we interact with the world around us. As we allow God to be the defining relationship in our lives, we find our confidence in His love for us. Learn how to bring your heart, imperfections, scars and all to Jesus and truly experience the love of God.
When our identity is firmly established in Jesus, it changes everything. It shapes every decision, every relationship, and our how we respond in every circumstance. Through this talk we explore the source of our identity, how we define ourselves and what the Bible says about who we truly are.
There is a peace and freedom that can be found in surrendering and trusting in the Lord. Sometimes the weight of our circumstances and the burdens of this world can make us feel overwhelmed and hopeless. But there is a joyful freedom and an indescribable peace when we release the outcome of our situation to the Lord, trusting that with Him, we will always be okay. Learn hear how we can stand firm in this world and in our circumstances, no matter what we are facing.
