SheFindsTruth

She Finds Truth is a podcast about reality, Jesus, and everyday life. It's about discovering God is using us right where we are - in the midst of our craziness! - to glorify Him and sanctify us. Bottom line, it's the podcast for believers about how our faithful God is working in the chaos of our daily lives.

Awhile back I listed out some things I can do when I am feeling like a loser and just can't get it together. (I've decided I need to post these in my office. Or on my forehead.) But meanwhile, I did a podcast on them. The first part was episode 13 and I basically got through 1-2.5. This episode completes the list and I think it's a decent list. Among other things I discuss the idea that some things the world thinks ARE sins, possibly aren't.. as well as what some Bible verses DON'T mean. 

Includes:

God has a reason for you. We don't need a 5 year plan, we need to look around and see what needs to be done.

Romans 8:28-30

Freedom from sin means we can freely serve. 

 

Habakkuk 1:1-4

Lord Help me make this happen. 

Philippians 4:10-13

Isaiah 41:10

Bonus Step - Tell Satan to shove it. 

Philippians 4:4-8 - Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplicationwith thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Feb 16, 2016

In an effort to be uplifting today instead of super heavy (it IS February after all; in the Midwest that means we are all struggling to go on with our lives because the sun hasn't shined in 3 months), I ran across this post I did awhile back called 10 Steps When You Feel Like a Loser. 

Turns out talking about these in detail only brought us through steps 1-3 and then I had to stop and start another episode. (I'm attempting to be consistent with the length of the episodes and keep them around 30 minutes or less.) Anyway, this episode covered thankfulness and confession. It also includes discussion about how "gratitude journals" are all the rage and they worry me. 

Solid Scripture in here. This episode includes the following:

I Thessalonians 5:18

Colossians 3:15-17

James 1:17

Philippians 4:6

In the segment on Confession I get far enough to reference Bo Giertz' book To Live with Christ which I can recommend enough. Also this bit from the LCMS and also Luther's Small Catechism. Check those out. 

Also I have a smidge of intermission music from Monty Python. :)

The next show will finish up our list. More Scripture, more of my rants and encouragement. See you then!

Feb 13, 2016

Recently I got an email asking what I thought about the IF:Gathering. This conference and the discussions I've had about it have prompted the resurfacing of all sorts of emotions and fears I have had in the past. I didn't actually go to the conference. I know that would have been great because then I would have a more educated opinion, but my husband and I had plans to go away that weekend and I was not going to get in the way of that annual event. 

Anyway, I'm worried about the IF:Gathering's emphasis on US and what WE can do FOR GOD. Here is a link to a blog post written by Aimee Byrd that I think identifies some of the bigger issues with the event. 

As for me, events like this remind me of a time when I was trying to prove myself to God. Which prompts me to encourage all of us to do the following whenever we are listening to a speaker, attending a conference, or a reading a book that reflects Christian ideas...

 

1) Consider the source. 

2) Consider the message. 

3) Consider the Scripture. 

Scripture that says USE YOUR BRAIN!

I've been thinking a lot lately about the right way to approach Scripture. I'm becoming more and more aware of how we make everything about US - including the Bible. Yes, the Bible delivers the message of our salvation. But the Bible is about God. He is the main character and the plot twists and main ideas are all centered around Him. Not us. In this podcast I make profound statements like: 

Let's make Bible studies that teach us about God. Not about us. 

The world does not revolve around us.  The world revolves around our Lord and Savior. 

The Lutheran church doesn't require you say a magic phrase to be saved.

Most of the people in the Old Testament are a mess. 

Christians are sinners. 

 

I know can you believe how cutting edge this stuff is? 

Other cutting edge things you might want the links to since I included them in my shockingly truthful podcast....

Just and Sinner podcast How to Change the Culture

When it gets posted I'll put Pastor Meyer's sermon on here where he talks about God's Facebook Timeline. 

1 Corinthians 12:3 -No one can say Jesus is Lord except in the Holy Spirit. 

A brief overview of Arminianism on Got Questions.org. 

Books I recommend for straightening out what is Biblical and what is Lutheran (those are the same thing btw ;) - 

The Way of Salvation in the Lutheran Church by G.H. Gerberding

Spirituality of the Cross by Gene Veith

I talk about moralism on today's show and I guess I'm really thinking more specifically of legalism. Either way, here's a link that talks more about how that looks. 

Story of Abigail - with actually accurate details. Sorry I butchered it in the show. 

Some of the people I can blame for finding out how me-centered women's studies are - Lisa Cooper, Lewis Polzin

Me-centered approach vs. God-centered approach might look like this:

Why is this happening to me?! (complete with whiny voice) vs. Is God using this to point to Him? (complete with mature thoughtful voice)
