I was wrestling
Wrestling with how complicated my faith seemed.
Wrestling with what was cultural versus what was Jesus-led.
Wrestling with how much I love this beautiful gift of ministry versus how pulled I was in so many directions.
Tell me I’m not the only one.
That’s just it. I know I’m not alone in this.
That led me to walk with Jesus for nearly two years. Crazy, right? Because I’d been walking with him since I was a teen.
Yet I was looking for a new sign in my faith. One that read: This is a new path. Fresh. Challenging. Intimate. Life changing.
I took that exit sign and began a new journey, one that lead to rested faith. Challenging faith.
Maybe you feel the same way I did.
In four days we begin the online study for Come With Me: Discovering the Beauty of Following Where He Leads.
This personal journey didn’t begin as a book, but it’s my privilege to invite you to exchange wrestling for resting in your faith.
In this brief video, I share a little more about that journey.
Today women from all over the nation will join me in #livefreeThursday. We’ll talk about what it looks like to wrestle and perhaps how we arrived there. We’ll also explore what it means to be rested in your faith.
This is what it looks like to me:
Simple rather than complex
Listening to the voice of God daily and responding
Modern-day follower of Jesus
Partnering with God to impact the world, in big and small ways
I hope you’ll join in today’s conversation, but I also pray that you’ll join in this six-week study beginning next Monday.
Invite your friends to sign up.
Start a small online Facebook group and invite others to join you. Everything you need to host a private group with your best friends (and those who might not otherwise go to a church study) is right here.
Share the news of this study with your Women’s Ministries director.
Or just do this, you and Jesus.
I’ll share videos twice a week that you can share with others, or use in your church or small group, or watch on your phone or iPad.
We’ll pray for each other during this study. I’m super excited because I’ll be popping in to a few groups here and there by Skype!
You are invited to join a movement of women across the world
