The (in)courage Podcast

The (in)courage Podcast

Welcome to the (in)courage podcast! Each weekday we meet you right where you are on our website, social media, and podcast as one of our 30 writers shares what’s going on in her everyday life and how God’s right in the middle of it all. They bring their unique experiences -- joys and struggles equally – so that you can feel less alone, and be empowered by the hope Jesus gives. We hope you’ll bring us along with you on your morning walks, driving to the grocery store, waiting in the preschool pickup line, alone in your kitchen, or as you wind down for the evening. Wherever you join us, you’re welcome here, and we’re honored to be a part of your day.

If you are feeling discarded, unwelcome, and forgotten today, may you find that you belong with Jesus. And for the rest of us, those standing securely in a safe community, may we be the ones who open our arms. May we be the people who widen our circles.

It's never too late to choose joy. Jesus whispers I am with you. I still place my hand of blessing upon you. It's never too late to choose joy. God's faithfulness will follow you. Moment by moment. Step by step.

Our remedy comes from The Great Physician. There’s just no hiding the overflow of our hearts and minds, even though we think we are doing a great job of managing or pushing away the pain.

Without lament to give us breath again, we can drown in despair. Lamenting was our way of declaring, “We haven’t given up hope yet. This is how we hope. This is how we keep going. And we will keep going.”

Anytime is the right time to draw near to God again. The beauty of drawing near to God is the promise that He will come near, bringing His peace, grace, and the clarity that you need to live confidently in Him.

The natural rhythm of prayer in our lives makes way for His supernatural peace. When a life-threatening scenario played out in front of us, we didn’t resort to prayer out of panic or fear; we responded in faithfulness with an already established practice. Praying united us with God and ushered His presence into the midst of our circumstances, and then His peace—a peace that doesn’t begin to make sense—guarded our hearts and minds.

Being around people reminds us of who we are and who we want to be. God is relational and practical Christianity hinges on community. We weren’t intended to merely interact with avatars on a screen. We were designed for flesh and blood relationships.

When you fall apart, you are falling into grace. Even while life is crumbling in ways that we cannot comprehend or control, His love for us still proves to be all that we need.

God loves us so much that He will meet us exactly where we are. I didn’t need to fix my make-up or put on real pants, and nobody asked me to send a calendar request. I just showed up, in my parked car, in the middle of my busy day in a busy week, and God met me there.

Often showing up with our focused ministry of presence is enough. Sometimes the people before us just need us to be silent. To pour another cup of coffee and dish out the brownie and sit with them in their time of need.

The wounds that we tend can become the place we most welcome others. When women support women, we all become more capable of showing up as our full selves.

Walking in accordance with God’s Word keeps us steady in the midst of unsteady opinions. When we get wrapped up in what people are saying about us and find ourselves willing to conform for the approval of people, we must pause and be honest about who we really want praise from. We cannot live for the approval of God and the approval of people.

If we can be in control of all of our circumstances, where is there room for faith to grow? Jesus encouraged the apostle Paul when healing on this side of heaven still had not come, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Likewise, I don’t need to be afraid or ashamed that I don’t have all the answers.

Just because YOU could be better doesn’t mean you’re not good enough. This is what grace means: that we in all our mess and brokenness are still enough. It means Jesus went to the cross and rose from the dead so that we could be holy and whole. It means that when He said “it is finished” He also declared “it is enough” over our humanness.

Thunder doesn’t rumble out of nowhere and storms move in over time. In Luke 6, Jesus says, “For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.” And what He means is that when we say something unkind or brutally honest to the point of destruction, that was simmering in our hearts first. It wasn’t a sudden accident — it was on the radar beforehand.

We're all daughters of the same God, privileged to bear His image to a world who is watching.  God used a complete stranger to challenge my perspective and to remind me that I never know who’s watching. I never know how someone might be impacted by the smallest, sincere expression of my trust in Jesus.

Love suffers long. Living out our love for Jesus isn’t shiny or brag-worthy, it is ordinary and often wearisome, work. To care for people made in the image of God, Jesus’ beloved “sheep,” requires that we regularly tend to our identity as those who are loved and created to love, nourish, and tend to others just as we have been by Jesus.
