"susie larson" Discussed on Focus On the Family Daily Broadcast

"Well, Susie Larson has been our guest today on focus on the family. And what encouragement for all of us to contend for our God given identity. That's a good stuff, John. And I wish I had heard this message when I was in high school. It's such a confusing time with so many paths available that will take you to one kind of future or another. I'll never forget when I was 17. I was our high school quarterback looking at college scholarship offers and dreaming of making it to the pros. I thought, and my brother Mike accused me of getting a little bit of a big head, and I had been a Christian for a year or so at that point. And I wanted God's will in my life. And so right before that next game, I prayed, lord, if you don't want me to play college football because it'll take me away from you, break a bone today, but don't let it hurt. Oh, my line accused me of being a sissy. What a clause, what a condition to put into a prayer. Right, it's crazy. But sure enough, in the third quarter of that game, I went back to throw a pass and our defense fell apart. I won't name the name. And man, an outside linebacker hit me so hard, woman to the ground together. And sure enough, I got up off the ground and my left collarbone was snapped in two. And back in the huddle thing, you guys got his answer to my prayer. And their response was funny. They thought I had a concussion. And so they were like quarterbacks, not right. And so I obviously walked off the field and my identity, I think in that very game was right there rooted in God's direction for me. And not something you could accomplish. I mean, that's ultimately what he wants for us is to look to him. Well, there's two ways to approach that one. I could have just assumed it was a coincidence or consider it a God incident. And thankfully I chose to say, I think God answered my prayer. And with that, you know, I love proverbs, chapter three verse 5, where the lord tells us, trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding in all your ways acknowledge him and he shall direct your paths. I don't think it requires a broken bone, but I'm sure he appreciated the faithful nature of my statement. So let me encourage you to seek the lord, like Susie Larson talked about today to find your identity in Christ, not in materialism and other things. And then learn how to walk out his plans for your future. And if you'd like to talk to somebody about that, please give us a call. We have a very friendly staff here at focus on the family that's ready and willing to listen to your concerns, pray with you, answer questions. And if you're a situation warrants it, they can request a callback from one of our caring Christian counselors. Yeah, that's a great team. And they're here to serve you, so please just know that you can call, and this Bible based help is free. It's provided for by the generosity of so many donors. Yes, and we thank those donors for making it possible for our counselors to provide a one time consultation to about 1500 people each month think of that. There are a lot of hurting people out there, and it's an honor for us to come alongside them and help them get on a better path to help in healing. For example, here's a letter we received from Mary. She said, several years ago, my daughter went through a very rebellious time in life and was raising her children alone. I turned to focus on the family for help. I spoke to a counselor and I really felt valued and understood. A few days later I received a package of resources from focus, geared toward intentional Christian grandparenting, since then our daughter has settled down and remarried, and thank you for showing us how to demonstrate Christ's love to our grandchildren during that perilous time, and for your encouragement and prayers God bless you. I so appreciate Mary giving us that feedback and being an involved grandparent and what a great reflection of the team here serving her in that moment. Yeah, it was so glad we were able to partner with the lord and with those donors in helping her in that way. I like to say that here focus on the family, we've built a great engine. We just need the fuel to keep it running, and that fuel is the support of you. The donor community, especially those who can partner with us on a monthly basis, it helps us immensely it doesn't have to be a large amount. It's just that consistency which helps us balance the books every month and allows us to plan better. And if you can make a monthly pledge of any amount, we'd like to send you a yearlong devotional written by Susie Larson. It's called prevail 365 days of enduring strength through God's word. And that'll be our way of saying thank you for helping us help families like Mary's. If you can't make a monthly commitment right now, we understand, and we can send Susie's book to you for a one time donation of any amount. So get in touch with us today and get Susie's great encouragement for your daily walk with the lord. And you can reach us when you call 800, the letter a in the word family. 802 three two 6 four 5 9, or donate online and request your copy of prevail, we'll have the link in the show notes. And then finally, as we close, the U.S. Supreme Court's recent rulings have certainly supported religious free speech and school choice and the value of life, Jim has provided a summary of some of the most significant rulings of interest, but we're going to link over to his blog at our website. Be sure to check that out. On behalf of Jim Daly and the entire team, thanks for joining us today for focus on the family. I'm John fuller inviting you back as we once again help you and your family thrive in Christ. I was convinced that nothing can change what was going on in our marriage, and I didn't want to try anymore, but my commitment to God helped me try one more time. We went to a hope restored marriage intensive, and it was life-changing. The counselors created the safest environment we could imagine. So that led us really talk. We're on a much different course now, and I believe we received a miracle that week. Receive your free consultation at hope restored dot com..

"When God looks at you, his heart beats out of his chest, he loves you so much. If you're shy and that you have less to say, that's okay. But if you think you're less than, that's absolutely not okay. If you live your life trying to dig yourself out of a hole, you're living a lie. Jesus loves you. You're no better then, but you are not less than. What a great word of encouragement from today's focus on the family guest, Susie Larson. Your host is focused president and author Jim Daly, thanks for joining us. I'm John fuller. Susie is a great friend to this ministry, and she has been through some really tough stuff starting at a very young age, and yet the lord has redeemed Susie's suffering, which is what he does. And he has helped her see her true identity as a believer in Christ, and I'm so excited to hear her message today. Susie Larsen is a popular radio talk show host, a nationally known speaker and the author of 19 books, one of her latest titles is a devotional called prevail 365 days of enduring strength through God's word, and we'd encourage you to get a copy from us here at focus on the family. It's available at our website and the link is in the show notes. Here now is Susie Larson speaking at an event called girl talk on the topic of identity on today's focus on the family. Identity is not something I came by naturally at all. And I just have a little bit of time to give you a little bit of my backstory, but I was raised in a large Catholic family. I knew God was real. I didn't know at that time Jesus was accessible. Around 9 years old was around the time my mom needed to get a job to help put food on the table. And around that time, my brother started to hang with some creepy boys and I small young people pleaser. I just remember just wanting to follow the rules all the time and one day I was walking home from school and I see my brother's friends bikes in front of the house. And we had just a close family of crazy family, but even like when my mom would come home from work, I used to show her the candle with the BB in it, going, this was meant for me. It's not safe when you're not here. My brothers would be like, dance. And I'd be like, how long, you know? Brothers were like that. But they really did get into a place and a season where they were hanging with some icky guys. And at this particular day, I remember coming home from school, seeing those bikes and thinking, I don't want to be chased with the BB gun. I don't want to be nobby on the forehead. And I don't feel right around these guys. So I decided I would go into the laundry room in the basement, get my favorite sweatshirt out of the dryer, and then go up to my room and read a book until my mom got home. And 9 years old and digging into the dryer, trying to find my shirt or my sweatshirt, and the door shut behind me. And I turned around to see several of my brother's friends, but no brother. And in moments time, I don't know how it happened where I went from hands in the dryer to hands pinned on the floor. But they had my ankles in my wrist pinned on the floor. And I got up from that place very, very confused about who I was. It was a canyon of open insecurity opened up in my life. And self loathing and fear and all kinds of things. I'd heard a number of things at that age that made me wonder if this was my fault. So I was really afraid to tell anybody so I didn't. And about a year later, about ten years old, I'm walking home from school is pretty about four feet tall, not much too short, taller than I am now. But anyway, I was walking home and I saw those bikes again and I remember seeing out loud and this is just so you understand a context of a child who doesn't understand. Who I was or what exactly had happened to me. But I said out loud, I don't care if God made me this way. Those boys will never touch me again. And out of the blue, I hear in my peripheral getter, and it was a different group of boys who were getting high in the dugout, saw me walking home alone and jumped me and knocked me to the ground and beat me to a pulp. And I remember just curled up in a ball screaming for healthier kicking me in the stomach punching me in the face, pulling fistfuls of hair out. And I just screamed. And they laughed. And they had this crazy look in their eye. And when I got up, I had a fat lip and scratched face and bruised ribs, snarled hair. And I heard in my ear, I don't know that it was audible, but it might as well have been. I can get to any time, anywhere, and God will never stop me. And so I knew God was real, I knew the devil was real at that point. And I have to tell you, that's when fear enter my life. Well, you jump ahead. I came to Christ at about 8th grade. I just loved God, loved Jesus so much. I understood that time that I was saved, but I did not understand that I was loved. And I would submit to you many, many Christians live and die who were saved, but are not free. Their living and dying, knowing they're saved, but they don't know that they're loved. And so I became as a young adult, Christian, a striver. I mean, prior to that, I was an athlete. And so I used all of my talents to dig myself out of the identity hole. And this is just what's true. If we don't know who we are, we will perpetually misuse our time treasure and talents. To prove something that Jesus has already proven. And it's a colossal waste of our time. We must know who we are. But I didn't. I didn't know. So I'm striving, I'm on 5 committees. I'm trying to do everything I can to kind of compensate for the wretch that I really believed myself to be. Like, I had a deep, dark secret. And got married to my dear husband and we were going to wait 5 years to have kids and we got pregnant on our honeymoon. And my husband, and I'm telling everybody, you know, I just was so insecure that I'm like, we waited. I promise we waited. And he's like, let him think what they want, you know? But anyway, during the first pregnancy, we found out I had endometriosis. And doctor says you will have a hysterectomy in your 20s. So you have to get if you want more children have them now. My middle pregnancy, I was on bed rest for three months. My last pregnancy, my third pregnancy, I was on bed rest for 6 months with a one and a three year old. And the one year old was strong willed, and my first one was compliant, so we were good parents. And then we had our second one. And then we thought, never mind. But he was the stronghold child who spent his life in the corner. I mean, I would go sit with them just so I could bond with them because I'm like, I never see you, except for. So you can imagine with 6 months on bed rest. I literally had friends tell me. I'll watch Jake. You'll have to figure out Luke, but I got Jake, you know? But if you remember the trauma that happened, I was a good Christian and that I was always giving more than I was taking. So to be put on bed rest for 6 months to have to be at the mercy of people bringing meals, people helping, seeing people get fatigued on my behalf was a nightmare come true. We were going financially broke too. And I literally was telling my kids 5 more months till mommy can make your sandwiches. Four and a half more months till mommy can take you to the park. And yet I'm watching my Friends tire out. They're running out of grace. It confronted every fear and insecurity in me. I was getting pretty depressed. I was 6 months along, had three months left to go. And I hadn't contracted for a couple of days, so the doctors said, you know what? Let's get you up. You're seeming kind of depressed. Let's get you get up. Met a couple girlfriends. My roommates from college. And we just walked along a path. The leaves were falling. It was glorious. I was super careful. We ate lunch. By nighttime I was contracting, so I was back in bed and two weeks from that outing. I had a girlfriend come visit me and she said, can I get you water? And I pointed, and pins and needles shot out my arm. And she continued to talk in this buzzing feeling started at the base of my skull and crawled around to my face and it felt like there was like a bloodsucker on my face. And I started to have these neurological fireworks. My memory started to go. But I've got three months left. And.

"May he refuses to do that. He will not let that enemy tribes as you're in his arms and he says that lie. This is what's true. Truth will be a healing balm. You'll feel the. We'd get yanked out. But when he starts to plant new seeds anymore. How does it with his word. You're like yes. I was made for restoration. I love that. I love that and i think just really inviting the holy spirit to go lead us to you. I love that idea of not going into the dark room alone. Because i think that's what the enemy says. Oh it's too scary What you might discover what god might say. But i know from personal experience. He's such a beautiful gentleman and he's such a wonderful shepherd and he takes us at a pace we can go. That's the thing. I think the enemy wants us to tell say to us as well as oh you're going to be totally undone. No no no no no. He is such a faithful father in. I believe he takes us layer by layer at a pace that we can go in that. We can assimilate truth to replace those lies and again i mean i do. I seriously believe as i was reading last night. I thought i thought of several friends that i'm going to get this book for because i know i know they know there's an issue there's a problem they're feeling it in their body the torment in their soul and they want freedom. But sometimes we don't know how. And i just i really i appreciate you susie because you always take us back to truth. It's always about scripture but then you also bring that holistic understanding of of our body and everything. Because you've lived through it. And i just i want to thank you for being faithful to steward your pain and not allow the enemy jets to suck you down in it because you have a message that we need to hear on so many levels all of your books. I feel like there. You've lived them. And so they're they're just they're steeped in prayer steeped in the word. I'm anyway. I just think you're amazing and i appreciate you so much before. We came on susie when i when i got on our recording Suzy was doing a facebook live and it was so good now. Do i understand that you do that every wednesday morning or you're aiming for a weekly time that's right on. I actually interviewed people on tuesday thursday nights and but i do a wednesday word in the morning just too short seven minutes or so devotional. Yes and the one i. I didn't know you're listening. So that's what you're talking about. Yeah i was trying to figure out. What scripture i because i want to prepare for wednesday i wanna make sure. I don't do an overlap. So i needed to listen to it again to make sure i'm not doing any kind of overlaps. Yeah that one was about. I believe you know and it only people think they need to hike themselves up by the bootstraps. It only takes a mustard seed of faso. It hinders the movement is our unbeliev so can we deal with. The unbelieving are are self limiting beliefs but also our god limiting beliefs. That's what that was about. Oh i just loved it and you said something that i actually have been asking the lord for some wisdom concerning What i want to write in my new book on trusting god and you shared a little bit about expectation and expectancy and what your mentor are taught you about that. And i really think as we are talking about this whole This whole issue of where you know to be the best illustration for me is where we feel stuck where we're stuck physically stuck emotionally whether we're going through a just turmoil. We cannot figure out how to get forward from that. I just feel like that explanation. You gave in in the facebook live. This morning. Could help someone when it comes to..

You have to fight in that fight. i doctored ahead twenty tubes of blood taken in mri. Had you know. A number of things that proved in revealed that i had something called chronic. Inflammatory response syndrome. So i had lime. And i've had lyme issues but this was mold toxicity causing a massive inflammatory response in my body so through doctoring to christian doctors a functional med doctor an md who ended up becoming friends and working together on my behalf Learned that what happens in your soul happens in your cells it was like god was saying this is allowed and overplayed enemy attack to position you for freedom. Because i knew you were strong enough. Now we're going in. And and i really believe that he does this with people feels like the enemy came out of nowhere. Blindsided you and it's an over played enemy attack because you're actually stronger than you know. And you're finally now position for freedom and that storm will reveal the lie that you believe in the trews you need and then you go to work with lord and you start to pay attention. There were old traumas that i had counseled through or in some. I'd forgotten about having dealt with at all and what scientists say is your body holds on trauma your body nose. Guess what your enemy knows. He remembers he. He he's had you know thousands and thousands of years to study mankind and he's no knew from day one. He has a better memory than you do about the trauma that you've gone through your body remembers your soul actually holds onto that stuff enemy does and he's gonna stays in the shadows and jerks your chain while there comes a time where god says it's time to delivery as time freedom and so often we are so afraid to face some of those past traumas..

And i was just in tears because there is so much richness in this book and i love just how interactive it is you you share your heart with issue then you point us description you point to our own kind of just a soul healing for ourselves and i am so excited to see what god's going to do with this book Thank you john. It really is a soul healing journey. really is about inner healing and how that process does push out indoor physiology and does a healing work in our health and this isn't just for people who struggle with health. You might need a restoration in your sense of identity restoration in perspective or in a relationship but no matter what what happens in our soul happens in ourselves. We are physiologically spiritually very connected and the invitation of the lord when he says you know when scripture says in psalm twenty three he restores my soul. It is so much more far reaching than we could possibly imagine in. That is my invitation. Let's explore what god meant when he said that. What is the invitation for us. What our our self limiting beliefs. What our god limiting beliefs and could it be that. The gospel kingdom are far more reaching than we once thought. I love that. I love that you know as i was reading it. I kept thinking of the verse. Where jesus said i've come to give life and that more abundantly and i just feel like so many of us settle for less than all that god has. Why do you think that is. I believe we don't believe in trust in his love to the extent that he wants us to and i i'm the poster child for that for many years i was saved. I still nov loved. I was saved by grace through faith..

"To speak to me another moment. And lord itemize to you and trusting that you are my provider like you said you. Would you know bible says faith comes from hearing and for me. That is the way i've had to do it. First and foremost caving my connection with god so strong and just we're constantly renewing my mind in the goodness of god and then i don't let that stuff go for very long when i'm getting harassed i stand up got her armor and i i tell it what's what so for me. Those are the things that really helped me but praying out loud and praying the scriptures. Those kinds of things are really huge. Yeah well jesus did it right in this station. He he quoted deuteronomy to the devil few times seen. He knew he knew the truth. Spoke the truth back to all three of those temptations. So that's absolutely right you know. I'm so glad that you wanted to talk about your beautiful purpose of you. Have so many books we could talk about. But i'm really glad to. Especially and i want to end with this question with to get your thoughts. The pandemic has made a lot of us. Rethink our lives. Rub think about our purpose. what are we here for. What really matters what doesn't matter you know. I think everybody has been forced to stop and think a lot not just through death and loss which always wakes us up but Just you know overall What would you say because you wrote the book before the pandemic What thoughts do you have now. In sort of seeing the way we think about our purpose what our life is supposed to be about in light of that. What what are some of suzy's thoughts at this time That's a really great question. I think the books ten years old. If i remember right. I felt the nudge when you asked me which book for some reason. I thought this is why we need to talk about today. Among i really do believe i hear a lot of people saying wanna go back to before covid but the thing is when when life shakes you see what's in you and i think we've been able to see the state of the church. I think we've been able to see the state of us as human beings and in times of plenty and times of favor and wealth and all those kinds of things you can get away with a lot and cover up a lot but when things get shaken what cannot be. Shaken can be clearly seen so in some ways what this enemy meant for evil. God is using for good. Because he's showing us the state of the church and the state of our hearts in many people who were hiding in their business and stuffing their wounds their traumas their self limiting god limiting beliefs into the basement of their soul. Were forced to reckon with those during twenty twenty and what. I really believe with all my heart. Is it. if there's ever a time to be thinking about your god given purpose it is right now because there's a world right now. That has been traumatized by all of its gone on with a social unrest with the pandemic with the election. Tensions everything in weaning to be in a position to build a minister life and hope to a world in need in prior to this. I mean like four years ago. I think it was maybe five barna Issued a report. That said there's almost no difference. Between christians hangups inhabits and unbelievers habits as far as on paper like our default responses tang citing fear..

"Got a pause there because that is powerful. I'm going to read it again So listeners hear this because this is a word for you today. Here's what susie wrote. Jesus created you with a very specific purpose in mind to live the powerful significant life assigned to you by god. Then you onto to write. You must with god at your side. Confront the bullies of fear insecurity and inferiority. You must be great enough to walk by faith be taneja enough to grab hold of his promises and never let go and be humble enough to admit that you need him every single hour. He beckons you toward a battle. But you stand on the winning side. I just love those. Those are some marching orders. That's exciting news. And then you add no one and nothing can deter you from. You're calling only unbeliev can so that battle is within right. That's the that's that's the challenge. That's what you've been talking about already. I think it's within an without. You know i think we are getting our own way with the stuff with the insecurities fears that we leave unchallenged. Within us we have to roofless with our insecurities with allies that a subtle into our soul. And then the enemy you know. He said a long time to study us. You know you think about what. I walked through the child. I'm just. I bet every one of you could look back over your shoulder at your childhood and remember the first time you felt like you were not enough in you can just know that the enemies threat against you is very connected to your threat against him like he saw your potential before the you ever did and this is why. I really do believe this gym. That many many christians go through life knowing their saved. But they don't know they're loved and to me. That is first and foremost because when you live loved and you live out of the love of god and you really believe nothing can separate you any. You believe that you're not what you do. Your someone got loves then you can go on to do things for his namesake that are disproportionate to who you are. It's one of the reasons. I love that equations to ten comes after two eight nine. I we renew by grace. We are saved through faith not of ourselves as a gift of god not a result of works so no one can boast in fact paul toxins scripture when you try to reconstruct a system where you earn your way improve yourself..

"Because i've overcome the world but isaiah a twelve says. Do not call conspiracy everything. This people calls a conspiracy. Do not fear what they fear and do not dread it and so it does come back to that. What what is this doing in my heart. And even when. I find myself contradicting the lord and saint. Yeah but and i'm exalting my situation. I don't usually have a problem doing that. To other people it's mostly me where i exalt might quote unquote truth above what the lord has already promised me what he's already said and it sat reminding ourselves of the promises of god and that's why again i just love this devotional because you just bring us back to some of the basic things that the lord has said to help recalibrate ours. All i love it. Okay fiery one more for you please please. This one is towards the beginning of the devaux and tried to get in scripture when it's called deal with a disconnect genesis seventeen seventeen than abraham bow down to the ground but he laughed himself in disbelief. How could i become a father at age of one hundred thought. And how can sarah have a baby. When she's ninety years old. God promised abraham at the generations would come through abraham and sarah his response. He bowed low but he laughed on the inside. How often do we do the same. We sing about god's faithfulness but do we really believe he'll do the impossible. Our situation when the gap widens between what are outward christian actions reflect and what are inward beliefs reveal. We must make noted it but without condemnation. We often arrive here because we're weary in the waiting tired from battle but we must not allow the gap to linger within us for very long re-engage. Your faith today. Remember god could do in a moment with takes us a lifetime to accomplish. And when faith awakens your heart and inspires your actions will the stuff of miracles. And the it's time to deal with the disconnect. Got us better than we know. He's kind of the we can fathom. Remind your soul today that nothing is with him. Russell was got in contend for his promises. Until you believe them again. Your faith is so very precious to him. And here's the prayer precious lord. You are a faithful god. Show me the gap that exists between what i do what i truly believe and then fill in those empty spaces with more of you awakened my heart and i will engage my face. Do the impossible in my life in your name. i price in that Yes yes lord that gap. I love how you put that because that really is it. And when the lord pointed out it's you know his correction isn't rejection. He's just saying. I want to heal you there and i. I hope that you've heard that as we've been talking about the different things is that this isn't condemnation like susie pointed out it's to sing god which he'll the gaps in my soul. I just received that for myself today. Suzy i. I'm really tired of living in the gap. I need god's truth to stand in the gap for me..

"Well i'm just a truth teller. Well i know. God's word says this but my reality is this in so i have this fight in my soul to say. Yeah god says this. But this is what i'm facing and i'm realizing that in my desire to be a quote unquote truth teller or a you know To make sure that i'm just accurately describing my situation. I'm nikki leading god's truth and what he says. So that's a multi-layered question but how do we get recalibrated in our soul for this time on the earth are home address on. I've got a multifaceted answer for you. But i think our last conversation i remember right. I addressed fear out of fully alive. I went after that pretty significantly their necks feel like any address this piece right now just for those who may be missed that or it's been a long time they heard that first podcast But as someone who deals with a chronic inflammatory condition And i belt that battle. Fear my whole life because there's some trauma that i endured as a child when i had this relapse. Two of my doctors basically sat me down who are believers. One is an md. One's a functional doc separately instead the susie. We're doing everything we can to bring the inflammation down in your body. But you gotta do something with that fear because fear when you allow fear in your life you open the door to a cascade of inflammation in your body. And you'd want sickness and disease grows in inflammation now. Covert is an inflammatory virus. I just think about how the enemy has wielded. Fear in as you said. There's so much i think what i know one day. God's going to pull the sky back and we're gonna see how much was propaganda. How much was real much. Was people at capitalizing on it away so they could benefit. Whatever i i. It's way above my pay grade. But i do know. The enemy is wielded. A spirit fear against the people of god all over the world now what you think that if he can get into fear. It's almost like if i can't kill you with the virus someone to kill. You is fear because we get into were on suddenly actually more vulnerable to sickness because our immune system plummets because we're in a place of inflammation so that's one thing as bible.

"Maybe you're right down in a shares. Maybe remember some of your history with god maybe dream a little bit with god. But you just set aside fifteen minutes a day pondering the love of god the love that he has for you It will change your brain structure interchange your saw. I mean it literally does change things neurologically for you. Hot not to mention how spiritually changed his thing. So i know for me. Joanna win my spiritual disciplines. Become otto's in should do's and maybe i've said this on your show before and not get too for me. It's because i've lost sight of the love of god so when i'm in a place of just surviving like my anchor. My hope is to get back to that place to remind my soul. That i can't. I can't interpret god's love through the lens of military hardships. That's why scripture says that we don't look at what is can seek temporary rising what we cannot see because these are light and momentary troubles and they're achieving for us eternal glory that far outweighs the mall in the fact is our problems. Don't feel like in momentary. There's nothing about them. That feels metairie but the word is true. So the contrast of the glory that awaits us is so significant. We can't even imagine so. I say every moment every hardship every battle has eternal implications. Like whether you choose face or not whether you choose love or not whether you choose to find your strengthen the joy of the lord or not in our our part. That really makes a very big difference. I'm gonna choose to believe the father's love even when it doesn't feel. I don't know about you but there's times where i've had to say. I want to pay attention to my feelings at different times. But i in certain i'm not leading with feelings. I don't know if that's helpful but it sure helped me. Well that's exactly what the lord's been teaching me going through my journals from the last three years because they've been working on a new book and just the struggle of it that it is for me and one of the things i just keep the lord keeps bringing me back to over and over is joanna. I need you to stop living your feelings. And i need you to start living by the fact that you are mine that i love you and i have good good things for you and if i if you're constantly judging me by your experience or your current reality basically it came down to this. He said to me one day. You need to stop contradicting me. That's good got to stop contradicting me. And every time. I allow my feelings to lead most of the time especially when it's in that negative bent. I'm in opposition to god's word i am and so how to do that and i think that that's one of the things i love about this. Devotional is you. Bring us back to the truth of god's word and i do love it. He didn't tidy up scripture to just make it stories of people who only always overcame. You know. I love that you were gonna learn from those mistakes as well absolutely you know we. We are in a day of cherry picking theology. My truth in your truth is so damaging amid post-truth cultures. They're calling it right now and one of the things i do..

"We're hearing amazing amazing saw and super grateful for how it turned out. And as you know. Beth negated a hardcover with a gorgeous pages. And while i you know i. It was a labor of love. Once i saw had it in my hands. I just marveled at the goodness got. Yeah well and the beautiful thing is is if you guys are listening to this interview in march you can still get this devotional because it's just numbered by day rather than by date and i really really love how you've given us the two opportunities to read chronologically through the bible or to go by topic you got Dealing with sin faith admitted opposition entries on the peace of god the power of the gospel sharing your faith shining in the darkness. There's just wonderful things that like. You can just page through the contents at content page and find. What do i need from the lord today so this is a so interactive and it's so practical and as always it's so powerful. I love the words that god gives you susie because they just seem to just cut through the fluff. I'm with you girl. I am not a fluffy devotional girl i want. I want meat and you have definitely set a beautiful table. You know you talked about twenty twenty being such a crazy year. And and i love the timing of the lord for this devotion i was just thinking you know for those out there that are listening and that word prevail and the here it in. They want it but they feel perhaps like the doing anything but prevailing. They just feel like they're surviving. How do we move from that posture of surviving to to that place of thriving or it's a great question. I know how i have to do that. As someone who still deals with some chronic health issues is you think about any time. There's a delay of the promise any time the burden feels heavier than the weightiness of god's promise anytime god feels absent because he silent it's the enemy will leverage those moments to step in between as if he can between us in god to say. Did god really say. Do you think he really is. do you. think you really are and The dow those are the times where we walk by faith not by sight. And you know this is a this is a a loose interpretation of regard cokes. I just don't remember it exactly. But he said something to the fact that that jesus not only love does i that first time he loves us. I every single day. The the love of god is what changes us and i have a daily radio talk show and i love brain science and just because i see how connected it is as a person. I worked in the fitness industry for fifteen years and i battled health things my whole adult life. And i love god's words so to see how god his fearfully wonderfully made us together and how important it is to understand the depths of what scripture actually means. I gotta tell you. I had a brain scientists on dr tim jennings and he talked about that. If we were to spend fifteen minutes a day fifteen minutes day do nothing else but pondering how much god loves us..
