We continue our exploration of the Self Esteem Gospel with guest Nicole Zasowski about the popular message "Never Give Up On Your Dreams".
The "never give up on your dreams" message says that happiness is found on the other side of a met dreams, and that we should endlessly strive for our dreams regardless of anything.
Fundamentally, this message tells women to rely on themselves and their effort, instead of God’s, which included it in our season of the Self Esteem Gospel. Often we can pursue work and success as a way to cover up feelings of insignificance, inadequacy, or feelings of shame. Nicole and I talk about how our happiness is found in God and not in our circumstances and how our feelings of shame are only redeemed in Christ.
Here are a few things Nicole and I talk about:
-How can our fear of giving up on our dreams, or the pursuit of dreams in the first place, actually be a way we are responding from shame that we carry?
What are some signs someone might be dealing with shame in their lives?
How can our performance actually be something we do to feel like we are “enough” and to numb feelings of shame and insignificance??
What does God say about our performance, and what does he actually want from us if it’s not what we can accomplish?
