Maybe you want to be honest and “fess up” (confess) something you did yesterday or years ago. Maybe you want to come clean about your past because you didn’t just tell a lie, you’re actually living a lie.
It’s a struggle for both Christians and unbelievers: How do you stop doing what you don’t want to do? Maybe you’re like me, and you want to learn how to stop worrying about what people think. Maybe you’re like my friend Sam, and you want to learn how to stop believing lies about yourself.
Saying no without feeling guilty is hard for many people. For Christians like me, learning how to say no without guilt or self-condemnation is practically impossible! Especially when I could say yes if I really wanted to, because I have resources to accommodate the request.
“Start as you mean to go,” was the first thing that popped into my head when one of my She Blossoms Facebook group members asked, “What was the best advice you’ve ever been given?”
Maybe you’re struggling to trust God because you’ve been hurt by someone you love. You might be dealing with a difficult relationship or coping with a chronic or life-threatening health issue. Or maybe you’re just tired of the daily grind, of dealing with petty problems at work or home, of not knowing what the purpose of your life is.
