    Ep 298 Terminate the Toxin of Unbelief and Guilt Shame

    Ep 298 Terminate the Toxin of Unbelief and Guilt Shame

    The longer we live with the toxins of unbelief, guilt and shame, the more we create anxiety, self-pity, self-doubt, and low self-esteem. It is hard to let go of these toxins, but if you do, God is ready to fill you with His peace.
    Terminating toxins takes time and focus. With our vertical gaze fixed on Jesus, we know we are not alone as we rid ourselves of the toxins. Validating and evaluating our feelings and reactions to our emotions help identify and remove three serious toxins. When we get rid of those, we can have a healthier, more fulfilling life.
    Today we will give you quite a few scripture to help you overcome unbelief and guilt/shame.
    I want to let you know about the daily devotion I send out Monday-Friday mornings.
    Join our amazing community of humans taking a little time each morning to dig into God’s Word.
    When you sign up for Morning ‘Sonshine’, you will receive a little encouragement in your inbox each morning. The devotion starts with scripture, then a short teaching, and ends with a quick prayer.
    We’d love to have you join us! I promise no spam, just Jesus and me. You can find the link in the show notes or on my website billiejauss.com.
    Do you have a friend that the podcast or the devotions may bless? Let them know!

    E-evaluate the toxins of Unbelief and Guilt/Shame
    Satan loves it when we have questions or doubts about God, and his hope is that we’ll never find our way back. That Satan would even care to mess with me tells me God has something magnificent in store for my life. 
    We want to control rather than release power to Jesus. We deny that God can do more and do it better than we ever could. We don’t accept the fact that God has our best interest in mind.
    What are you struggling with? The doubt that God can use you? That you can make a difference in the kingdom? Guilt and shame from your past cancels what you can do now?

    In today’s episode of start small BELIEVE BIG we define the toxin of Unbelief and Guilt/Shame.
    I love that many of you have been on this journey called a podcast with me for almost 200 episodes. Yes, I started the podcast with the number 100. Let’s just say don’t listen to everything others suggest!
     I began this series of Detoxing from the three top emotional toxins. But I’m taking a little detour. We are going to cover the last two over the next 5 episodes.
    There are some exciting things happening and there’s a bit of redirection being tossed about.
    I’m in the very beginning stages, but as we head into the 200th episode the Lord is placing some small things on my heart and in my path.
    We will dig into that over the next few weeks. So come back for exciting decisions and moves.

    Never let the barriers keep you from accepting what God wants to do in and through you.
    This week we are outlining a plan to overcome the emotional toxin of Fear.
    Start today. Begin to rewrite the plan believing that God promises the other side. When the Lord gives a directive, He gives direction. Trust that He will take you there. Find peace in His intention, even when you don’t know what that is.
    Having a spiritual health plan gives us guidance to rely first on Jesus. A list. My favorite thing. Create a list as a reminder to finish the detox with a healthy forward plan of action to follow Jesus.
    The Health Plan’s first step is writing three statements that I believe are true about you, and you should and will think about yourself.
    -I am braver than I believe.
    -I am smarter than I think.
    -I am stronger than I seem.
    The great I Am will take you to the other side.

Short, Sweet, and TRUE

I love a good podcast but often don’t have time in my busy days for a longer one. I LOVE that these podcasts are packed with truth and encouragement, yet short enough to start my day with! I can get ready, or drive to work, and have time to listen to the whole thing.

This is one of my favorite podcasts because the host, Billie, is full of realness and stands firmly on truth and Jesus as her anchor. It’s the exact type of podcast we need more of!!
