Faithfulness: How Not to Climb a Mountain

In this episode, we’ll discuss how to take problems, anxiety, and frustration and turn it into something that is going really well that you can get excited about!This is your chance to notice the faithfulness of God, and also your own consistency.

Philippians 4:8 (ESV) – Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.

 

Choosing to climb a mountain with a pile of toddlers is no easy task.

Choosing to climb a mountain and never stopping to look at the progress you’ve made- that our family has made- is a miserable task.

But how do we stop to focus on what’s going well when we must be so busy carefully protecting our kiddos from themselves?

In this episode, we’ll discuss how to take problems, anxiety, and frustration and turn it into something that is going really well that you can get excited about!

For a great example of David’s focus on what is going well, check out Psalm 103:1-5 (ESV)

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And all that is within me,

Bless his holy name!

Bless the Lord, O my soul,

And forget not all his benefits,

Who forgives all your iniquity,

Who heals all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from the pit,

Who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,

Who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 

Want some areas to consider for what’s going well?

Here are a few:
What priorities are you keeping straight?

What are you trusting God about right now?

What are your children excelling at?

What progress have you made in the past three months? In the past year?

What wise financial choices have you made recently?

What random things have you been taking for granted lately?

What other things can you celebrate that is going well with you and your family?

Celebrate the faithfulness you are demonstrating in your own life!
