    53: Assurance of Salvation in the Midst of an Unbalanced Life

    53: Assurance of Salvation in the Midst of an Unbalanced Life

    Still hammering out how to get my podcasts recorded while working full time and doing all the family things. This episode didn't turn out too bad as far as sound. I do apologize for a few background noises! 
    Also I'm trying out a new format and I think it's going to work well. Episodes that follow this format will include 1-3 parts that reflect on
    1) Vocation Thoughts
    2) Learning Something
    3) Clinging to Scripture 
    I say 1-3 because sometimes I might do an entire episode on just one of those ideas. But generally I think this approach will help me get focused and streamline things a bit (if I'm capable of such a thing).
    This week...
    Vocation 
    What is TOO MUCH for one's schedule? What is best for my kids' schedules? Does anyone agree on this? lol I reflect. 
    Learning
    Reminder: You can put down some of the plates! I ran into this video the other day - LINK HERE - and she points out it's better to not try to balance all the plates but just to put some down. Smart woman! We should be encouraging each other to do this.
    also
    Being Lutheran podcast is my current favorite and they said something super profound the other day that I unpack in this episode. "The Christian life is assurance of salvation and the doctrine of vocation..." I love it. Find out why. 
    Scripture 
    Psalm 145:4-5
    One generation shall praise Your works to another,
    And shall declare Your mighty acts.
    I will meditate on the glorious splendor of Your majesty,
    And on Your wondrous works.
    Wonderous works! You know like when your teenager talks to you! It's a miracle! ;)

    52: Asking for Help

    52: Asking for Help

    *This is definitely a gender-neutral episode!*
    (also, I'm back to my prior graphic; which do you like better?)
    Recording a podcast in my car! You do what you have to do. The more I do this the better it will get, I promise! #soundquality 
    This episode was born when I was speaking at a MOPS group recently. We started talking about how hard it is to ask for help and I realized how much this has been my experience. Then I had a lightbulb moment where I realized God made us that way on purpose. Which is not what I would have done if I were him. Actual thought:
    "Wouldn't it be great if things were the way I wanted and I could do it all alone?"
    Of course this is not a great idea, and so I had to do a podcast where we break this down some and look at the various aspects of asking for help and how/why it is so hard:
    Accepting help Prayer Processing aloud Allowing others to serve us Complimentary talents mean we need each other *****

    51: All This Grace

    51: All This Grace

    First podcast episode back after way too long of a break! It takes me a few minutes to get back into the swing of things (and I have to apologize for the pops and sub-par sound quality!), but eventually I find my groove. 
    Catching you up to speed on why I've been gone so long and then I start in on all this grace I've found. It's been such a pleasant surprise and it really has me thinking a lot about how grace functions in this world and why. 
    Links include:
    My blog post by the title "A Whole Lotta Grace." The content overlaps a little, but the podcast is a different take on things. Interview with author Trillia Newbell about her book God's Very Good Idea the magazine Fathom Thanks so much for checking out the podcast. I am excited to be back!

    49: What Does the Gospel Package Include?

    49: What Does the Gospel Package Include?

    Is theology relevant to everyday life? Of course! That's why I'm here. She Finds Truth is all about finding the truth of how Scripture applies to our lives. 
    The Bible is a story about who God is and about how He created man and then man abused the order of things God had set up, but God was merciful and full of compassion and love THE ENTIRE JOURNEY. From the very beginning, He had a plan in mind for how man would be able to experience His gifts including the reason they were created which was for fellowship with GOD.
    The best scenario for our lives is to have fellowship with God. And even though we are not worthy and we have repeatedly messed up this relationship from the beginning, God has pursued us through it all. He has time and time again created ways and opportunities for us to have fellowship with Him despite our sinful selves …. And that all culminates in the death and resurrection of His son who is sent to crush the head of Satan and fulfill the intentions God had from the very beginning for us.
    Today when I was stressing about life, I knew I needed to rest in His Word. So I flipped through the Psalms and I landed at Psalm 61...
    Psalm 61
    Psalm 63
    What is it I'm seeking refuge from? What is it God is offering refuge from? 
    Scripture does not reveal a God who swoops in and takes away all the bad things. It shows us a God who swoops in and offers rest and protection in the midst of the battle. It shows us a God who empowers us to love and forgive others. It reveals a God whose mercy never runs out. 
    What does the Christian life look like when we realize we are putting our trust in something other than God? Is this normal? Yep. I contend none of us are doing it right all the time. Most of us are doing it wrong most of the time. So we need to repent. We need to go to Scripture, prayer, and find Godly counsel. He provides us with the resources we need. Plus He just keeps on forgiving us. 
    The Gospel includes all sorts of things that we don't expect. And it makes way more sense than all the things we thought we wanted.

    48: God Is in the Business of Restoration

    48: God Is in the Business of Restoration

    You don't have to listen to 46: My Christ and My Chaos episode before you listen to this one, but this show technically is a response to that episode. Seriously it's won't ruin the experience, but I thought I should mention it. 
    The Mess
    In that show, I talk about "the mess" and how it seems like a popular topic. That we are all "a mess." There's like a hot-mess spectrum now. Are you on it? I think we probably all feel like we are on it at least some of the time. But after talking about that in episode 46, I got a lot of responses and so it seemed worth re-visiting. As a listener pointed out, God isn't all about leaving messes in the world. He's about restoration and healing! 
    So I talk through questions that have arisen about authenticity, problem-solving, and the specifics of what it means to be "a mess." Personally,  I find it helpful to get into the weeds and the details. I need perspective and help processing so I do benefit from talking through things. 
    Even so, we have to guard against getting stuck wallowing around in the mess. What ABOUT the restoration? Is that even a part of God's promises?
    The Solutions
    It IS important for us to talk solutions. How are people working through their messes? What does that look like? I suspect one reason this doesn't get as much attention is because the healing process can be long and gradual and there are fewer fireworks usually. 
    And how are Lutherans approaching all this? Are they looking for healing? What does Scripture say about healing and solutions in this lifetime?
    Romans 6:23
    Romans 6:4
    Romans 12
    Colossians (the whole book!)
    I think there is lots of Scriptural proof that God is here all along the way - changing us on the ground in the trenches. We should be looking for restoration and healing around us. It's there. It's happening. It's real. 
    The Gospel is multifaceted. But the bottom line is that the Gospel isn't dependent on our own faithfulness. It's a gift from God.
