12: Wrestling with Identity

What is it about the word Wrestling? It shows up EVERYWHERE. Let's talk about what it means to wrestle with our faith. And how do we react to others who have questions about their identities as Christians? What about people who struggle with the very act of going to church? How do we best help those who are in the midst of their own wrestling match.

Genesis 32:24 Then Jacob was left alone, and a man wrestled with him until daybreak. The Hebrew word for wrestle is אָבַק (ä·vak') and literally means to get dusty.

Let's get dusty.

I'd love to hear what you think about this topic. Email me at stacey@clarityunleashed.com

10. Clarity in Change

The process of growing in our faith can be an isolating one. Is it ok to have questions? Is it ok to ask them?

Topics today:

1. Check out a podcast I was on recently with Natalie Hoffman, who is a coach and runs a support group for women who are in or recovering from destructive marriages. In this podcast I share some basic, intermediate, and advanced tips and tools for studying scripture: https://flyingfreenow.com/episode-29-learning-to-love-the-bible-again/

2. Who are the sheep? Who are the goats? (Matthew 25:31-46

3. Are we safe in our churches? How do we know?

4. What is repentance?

5. What does it mean to be a brother or sister in Christ? Does our identity in Christ have anything to do with our social status, gender, race? 

6. My friend Vickie's encouragement to "get out of the box!" 

7. My very weird story about domain names (just thrown in for good measure).

I attended Beth Israel Messianic Synagogue on Saturday and it was so impactful for me. I have listened to them faithfully for about 3 years and finally attended in person. The week prior I found myself praying once again for clarity. Wouldn't you know that the service I attended in person was the Shabbat of Vision? God is so funny that way. Anyway, it is an excellent message about vision and clarity and I wanted to share it with you: https://www.podbean.com/eu/pb-ncr9x-bb15a6

8. How are Disciples Made?

Who makes disciples? How is the Great Commission demonstrated through Acts 16?  

Passages discussed: Matthew 28:18-20 and Acts 16

Also, page 331 of the following book: Forrest, Benjamin, and Chet Roden, eds. Biblical Leadership: Theology for the Everyday Leader. Grand Rapids, MI: Kregel Academic, 2017.

 

When we have the Spirit inside us, we identify the Spirit in others. This requires us to use our spiritual eyesight, and to look beyond physical characteristics to see God within each other. 

There are so many stories of women in the Bible, yet their voices are largely unheard. As a woman, I can identify with the spiritual characteristics present in men, but I'd like to hear more about how God worked in and through women too. 

In order to use more stories of women in our teaching and preaching, we need to experience them, study them, apply them. So that's one of my goals for 2019 - to uncover stories of women in scripture and raise the voices of the women God encountered in the Old and New Testament. 

Today we start briefly with Lydia, a woman we meet in Acts 16: https://www.blueletterbible.org/csb/act/16/1/s_1034001

4. Clarity of Wellness

11-15-18

Tonight I am speaking at a local wellness event at Zivkovic Chiropractic. I haven't had my Health Coach "hat" on in a bit and am looking forward to it. My topic is hormone balance, sleep and pain. If you would like to receive my notes, text the word CLARITY to 345345. You will be asked to supply your email address, at which point you will receive links to notes, my Facebook page, and the appointment link on my website. 

My podcast is not medical advice. I am not a physician. My statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This information is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. 

God gave me hindsight to see a connection between my life now, and a promise He made to me long ago. This purpose He revealed to me then has come to fruition, but in an unexpected way. 

If I had bumper music for this episode, it would totally be the sound of helicopters.
