    237. Control and the Works Mentality

    237. Control and the Works Mentality

    One of my issues growing up was I was the oldest child and my mother had many issues that caused her to be unable to do a lot of household duties. Many of these fell to me because otherwise they wouldn’t get done. So, as the oldest child of three, I stepped into a controlling, bossy mini-Mom. 
    From an early age I took on a works mentality. I took over Mom’s duties to they would get done. I did housework, laundry, cooked supper, took care of the kids, and did my own homework and school activities. I was always working. It was who I was.
    I became an in-charge Martha. Finally came the day, though, when God showed me how wrong I was.

    236. Hiding from Fear?

    Episode 236-Hiding from Fear?
    Are you afraid of people, things you failed at, things that want to make you go somewhere and hide and never come out again? Many are. This episode contains a fictional story about a woman who wanted to just live never having to deal with fear.
    When she thought about stepping outside the room, she felt naked, exposed, and vulnerable. To go for her dreams felt way too difficult, impossible, and scary.
    Fear can keep us stuck. Fear can cause us to disconnect from everyone we love. Fear can cause us to even hide from ourselves and make us stop trying to reach the dreams God has placed inside us. This woman learns how to step into life and go for her dreams. You can as well.

    234. Who Am I?

    234. Who Am I?

    Episode 234-Who Am I?
    Who am I? Who are you? Many times in our lives, people knowingly or unknowingly tell us who we are. This happened to me when I was six years old. At the time, I didn’t really know what was said would define me.
    I tried to push it out of my mind. It stayed there until another similar statement when I was an adult jogged my memory. And I realized how what was said along with what others said had set the tone for my life.
    I finally understood that I should allow no one but God to set the direction for my life. After all, He is the only One who truly knows me and can lead me. He is the only One who knows who I am and what I will become. I will follow Him.

    233. Forgiven

    233. Forgiven

    Episode 233-Forgiven
    I sat on the back deck of the lodge at the north rim of the Grand Canyon while my family was hiking. I just wanted to sit there forever and take in the glory and the splendor of God’s majestic, vast creation.
    The canyon is miles across. It looked huge. I thought of the song, “There is a cross to bridge the great divide.” The width of the chasm visibly reinforced the fact there is a wide gulf between me and God. There is no earthly way I can jump to the other side of the Grand Canyon. 
    As a human many things look impossible, but with God everything is possible, especially forgiveness.

    232. Am I Greedy?

    Episode 232-Am I Greedy?
    I never really thought of myself as greedy, but my journey has really been one of greed. What is greed?
    The definition of greed is “an intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food.” Did you get that? It’s not just an intense desire for money or position. It’s also a selfish desire for food! 
    Are you greedy? Listen to this episode to find out if you are and what to do about it.

I stumbled on your podcast by looking up Dove’s Eyes and reading about undistracted devotion. At the end it had your Bio and about the podcast. I so enjoyed it.
