The Sinner and The Saint

The Sinner and The Saint

She said what?! One was raised on a church pew in the south, the other on the wrong side of the tracks. Together this unlikely duo hashes out the complexities and quandaries of life while slapping a little Jesus on it. Does her sweet tea need a little vodka or is it the other way around? You decide.

There is a profound difference between feeling as though "you are not enough" and believing that you are underserving.

This week we go toe to toe with our inner critic and discuss ways to find the root cause of our inner critic.

Not Enough = feeling of inadequacy -  Questioning if you have what it takes - you ask yourself “What if I’m not good enough?”

Not Worthy Of = feeling of undeserving -  Questioning...

1 CHRONICLES 19:13 “Be courageous! Let us fight bravely for our people and the cities of our God. May the LORD’s will be done.”


Where does true courage come from?
God, but do we truly believe it?

 Side effects of courage - Trouble & Contagion

Do you prefer trouble with others or trouble with God? 
How do you respond to someone else's courage?

"but even after all He did, you refuse to trust the Lord your God." Deut. 1:32

In what ways am I not trusting God? What are you tight fisting?
Are you willing to deep deeper?
What is the root of the problem? 
Are you willing to stop the spin cycle?
Who or what are you putting your trust in?

Many of us are walking around all prettied up on the inside but a total disaster on the inside.

The truth will set you free but first, it might tick you off!

  1. The truth can be less comforting than lies. If we are honest, most people are more concerned about feeling good than healing good.
  2. The truth makes us question the narrative/story we may have believed for a lifetime. 
  3. Truth forces action. The action may be to cover up the truth and ignore it or it may require a heart change that will require hard work to manage ...

Jesus says to love others as we love ourselves, but we don’t often love ourselves well. 

Self-Compassion is NOT self-esteem
Self-Compassion is NOT self-pity
Self-Compassion is NOT self-indulgence

Self-compassion goes a long way if done correctly and without us allowing the world to warp the definition of what it truly means. When we learn to love ourselves as Jesus does we can truly love others the way He has called us to.

From the media we watch to the words we play on repeat in our subconscious, everything we consume impacts our lives...for better or worse.
