Sovereign Over This Too
1748

No matter where you find yourself, or what you're going through, God will be there for you if you ask him to.

A quiet time about God’s sovereignty, and how we can trust in it no matter what.

Scriptures shared today:

Psalm 281 To you, LORD, I call;    you are my Rock,    do not turn a deaf ear to me.For if you remain silent,    I will be like those who go down to the pit.Psalm 139:7-87 Can I go anywhere apart from Your Spirit?    Is there anywhere I can go to escape Your watchful presence?8 If I go up into heaven, You are there.    If I make my bed in the realm of the dead, You are there.

Psalm 143:77 Hurry and answer me, O Eternal One,    for my spirit is weak, my courage is gone.Do not turn away; let me see Your face;    otherwise, I’ll die and be like all those who have gone to the grave.

Trauma is What Happens Inside You
2625

I Came Home From the War and Never Unpacked the "Bags" of My Trauma

Friday Conversation: Dr. Patti Giebink's Unexpected Choice
3324

This Friday Conversation is a powerful and moving example of God’s relentless pursuit of us all.

Join me for a great talk with Dr. Patti Giebink, a former abortion provider for Planned Parenthood who changed her life’s work after her encounter with Jesus.

Patti’s book is Unexpected Choice: An Abortion Doctor’s Journey to Pro-Life.

How does a pro-choice doctor who once performed abortions for Planned Parenthood wind up on the opposite side of this embattled issue? Dr. Patricia Giebink was overpowered by God’s perspective at a healing conference, becoming a pro-life advocate who repented before millions for doing abortions.

As the author tells her emotional story, you will come away with a new understanding of the complexity of life, the risks of abortion, the power of prayer, and the greatness of God’s love and forgiveness - which is big enough to cover the pain of all affected by this controversial procedure.

Unexpected Choice is told from the perspective of a doctor who actually performed abortions through Planned Parenthood. The book chronicles her journey from being a pro-choice physician to someone speaking on behalf of the pro-life movement.

Well, my plans for a great New Year’s episode have been crushed by a computer failure. I’ve spent the last two hours working on it, and I’m going to have to work some more.

So, I’m bringing you back this episode, because it really sets the stage for everything we need to think about at the start of the year.

Lord willing, I’ll be back tomorrow with a brand new Mind Change Monday!

It’s the end of New Thing November!

We’re going into December ready to get rid of anything that’s holding us back. If you’re tired of being tired, and you want 2023 to look different than all the years before, it’s time to prepare the soil so God can plant something new in you.

Are you ready? Let me hear from you!

Friday Conversations: Dr. Jay Wellons
2538

Meet Dr. Jay Wellons, the Chief of Pediatric Neurosurgery at Vanderbilt University

Jay is a good friend, and one of the world’s leading experts in the amazing field of fetal surgery.

But what I didn’t know is that he’s also a writer. Lisa found Jay’s wonderful book, All That Moves Us: A Pediatric Neurosurgeon, His Young Patients, and Their Stories of Grace and Resilience at A-Z Bookstore in North Platte, Nebraska as we were browsing one Saturday.

Jay and I had a lovely conversation about the inspiring hope and resilience of children, and some things we’ve both learned over a lifetime of observing the wonder of the human nervous system.

This is a great talk, and I think it will bless you tremendously.

Hope Surgery for Christmas
2900

Merry Christmas my friend!

I didn’t record a new episode for Christmas. In fact, I hope you don’t even hear this today. But just in case you’re driving or working out and need something to listen to, here’s one of my favorite episodes ever, because the best Christmas present I could give you would be to teach you how to find hope no matter what you’re going through.

So here’s Hope Surgery, with a little Christmas music thrown in.

It's time for some hope surgery!

Life can be very difficult, and sometimes it seems like we're all alone and without hope in a dark world. But here's a few minutes about the self-brain surgery technique that will help you find hope and see the light again!

Scriptures mentioned in this episode

Habakkuk 1:2 “How long, Lord, must I call for help, but you do not listen?”

Isaiah 30:18 (NIV)18 Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.For the Lord is a God of justice.Blessed are all who wait for him!

Habakkuk 2:3 “Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.”

2 Chronicles 7:14 NIV14 if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Isaiah 1:19 IF you are willing and obedient, (THEN) you will eat the best from the land

Deuteronomy 28:1 IF you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, (THEN) the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.

Daniel 10 (NIV)

2 At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. 3 I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.

4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, as I was standing on the bank of the great river, the Tigris, 5 I looked up and there before me was a man dressed in linen, with a belt of fine gold from Uphaz around his waist. 6 His body was like topaz, his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming torches, his arms and legs like the gleam of burnished bronze, and his voice like the sound of a multitude.

7 I, Daniel, was the only one who saw the vision; those who were with me did not see it, but such terror overwhelmed them that they fled and hid themselves. 8 So I was left alone, gazing at this great vision; I had no strength left, my face turned deathly pale and I was helpless. 9 Then I heard him speaking, and as I listened to him, I fell into a deep sleep, my face to the ground.

10 A hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. 11 He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling.

12 Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. 13 But the prince of the Persian kingdom resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. 14 Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.”

Romans 4:18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed.

Hosea 12:6Therefore, return to your God, Observe kindness and justice,And wait for your God continually.

Psalm 27:14Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage;Yes, wait for the Lord

Psalm 33:20, 21 NIV “We wait in hope for the Lord; he is our help and our shield. In him our hearts rejoice, for we trust in his holy name.”

Psalm 33:3, 4 NLT “Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy. For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does.”

Romans 15:13 NLT “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Psalm 27:14 ESV “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”

Psalm 46:1-3 CSB “God is our refuge and strength, a helper who is always found in times of trouble. Therefore we will not be afraid, though the earth trembles and the mountains topple into the depths of the seas, though its water roars and foams and the mountains quake with its turmoil. Selah”

Psalm 121:1,2 NIV “I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.” (Listener did this- look for help!)

Romans 8:37 NIV “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” We will conquer the gap with self-brain surgery of doing, seeking, praying, trusting, pressing in, looking for help. Hope-tox doesn’t inject itself.

John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

Ephesians 3:

“14 For this reason I kneel before the Father, 15 from whom every family[a] in heaven and on earth derives its name. 16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, 18 may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

1923

Mary Fran Bontempo is a force of nature

A successful columnist and humorist, Mary Fran found herself in an industry that was rapidly changing, marginalizing her and forcing her into an unwanted and unplanned obsolescence. But she wasn’t ready to be “old,” or to let her voice be silenced.

Mary Fran reinvented herself, and became a sought-after public speaker and author. And then life delivered what she calls the “Sucker Punch.”

Her story of how she navigated her son’s overdose and addiction recovery, kept her family together, and became a thought leader, TEDx Speaker, and renowned podcaster is inspiring.

This is a great conversation that will show you the power of resilience, hope, and faith.

How You Can Change Your Mind
1317

Among all the creatures on Earth, God only gave humans the gift of selective attention. 

You have a remarkable, life-changing superpower that allows you to literally decide what you're going to think about. But it takes self-brain surgery to learn how to harness it for good. 

Self-brain surgery tip #25:

It takes the same amount of work to be in a bad mood as it does to be in a good mood. And both are decisions.

Scripture: Philippians 4

Visual Aids are a Great Learning Tool

Self Brain Surgery Saturday: Two Helpful Tips
971

It’s Self-Brain Surgery Saturday!

I thought it would be helpful to give you my first two Self-Brain Surgery Tips.

Self-Brain Surgery Tip #1:

There are some things we can't do. But learning how to put some space in between our thoughts and our responses will make our lives better. And we CAN do that. Here's how. 

Scripture Mentioned

The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

Jeremiah 17:9

Self-Brain Surgery Tip #2:

Be kind to yourself. Your brain is wired for negativity. Remind it that life is also good and that you are loved.

What if 2023 could be a whole year of experiencing God’s favor?

Here are some thoughts on freedom, deliverance, justice, mercy, and farming to help us all in the new year.

Does your life feel dry and empty?

Here’s a quiet time about how you can learn to be about 10% happier by using only neuroscience, or infinitely happier by letting the Holy Spirit fill your lungs with new life.

Self Brain Surgery Saturday: Bandaids for Broken Bones
2785

It’s Self-Brain Surgery Saturday!

Are you tired of being so tired? Wondering why you keep trying to feel better but wind up feeling the same, or worse? Why the things you’re doing, the things the world says will help, don’t actually help?

This episode looks at our recurring problem of treating big wounds with bandaids.

We also talk about my #6 book I read in 2022, Eugene Peterson’s Run With the Horses.

Scriptures:

“So, Jeremiah, if you’re worn out in this footrace with men,    what makes you think you can race against horses?

Jeremiah 12:5, The Message

If you falter in a time of trouble,    how small is your strength!

Proverbs 24:10, NIV

They offer superficial treatments    for my people’s mortal wound.They give assurances of peace    when there is no peace.

Jeremiah 8:11, NIV

10 Ways to Be Super Miserable In Your Life
2334

Ten Ways to be Super Miserable

(Borrowed from Season 2, Episode 30)

It dawned on me that I might be underserving some of my listeners. I’m always talking about how to be happier, but today I thought, “Wait, Lee. Some listeners might want you to teach them how NOT to be happy too!”

Friend, please forgive me if you’ve been waiting on me to release content to help you NOT be happy.

So, I thought today I would share the ten very best ways to guarantee that you’ll feel miserable in life! We’re going to learn how not to be happy, friend, and we’re going to start today.

Scriptures mentioned:

Psalm 28:7 “The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped.” 

Ecclesiastes 7:21-22 ESV

Do not take to heart all the things that people say, lest you hear your servant cursing you. Your heart knows that many times you yourself have cursed others.

Proverbs 19:11 ESV

Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.

James 1:19 ESV

Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger

Proverbs 12:16 ESV

The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult.

Ephesians 5:19-20 (ESV)…addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart, giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ

Psalm 1:1-3

How happy is the one who does not

walk in the advice of the wicked or stand in the pathway with sinners or sit in the company of mockers!

Instead, his delight is in the Lord’s instruction, and he meditates on it day and night. 

He is like a tree planted beside flowing streams that bears its fruit in its season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

Philippians 4:7 that, ”… the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

Psalm 16:6 (NIV)The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.

Psalm 16:6 (TPT) Your pleasant path leads me to pleasant places. I’m overwhelmed by the privileges that come with following you!

Life is hard, and we need to be ready for it when it shows up.

Quiet Time: What We Need
1792

A Few More Thoughts on Self-Advocacy, Being Enough, Relative Truth, and Finding the Light

The world is screaming at us things like:

* “Live YOUR truth!”

* “You ARE ENOUGH!”

* “Everyone needs to respect YOUR identity, and YOUR rights!”

The problem is, the more we listen to these ideas, the more tired and weak and dry our lives seem to become. There has to be a better way.

There is.

This quiet time explores the path forward out of the dryness and darkness of these lies, and will help you find the light again.

Scriptures:

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. II Corinthians 12:9-10 NIV

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12 NIV

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, Ephesians 1:18-20 NIV

Self-Brain Surgery Saturday: Ablate Self-Advocacy
2221

It’s Self-Brain Surgery Saturday!

Today, we learn a brand-new operation called Ablate Self-Advocacy. This will help you reject the idea that you have to fight for yourself amidst life’s troubles, and embrace the truth that we have a perfect advocate, the Yes to every promise God has made, to help us.

If you’re tired of being tired, tired of thinking life is always so hard, tired of feeling like you have to fight and claw for everything in your life, this is the operation you need.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians chapter 1

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. II Corinthians 1:20, NIV

Here’s a perfect example of this self-brain surgery operation:

Tommy Walker’s songs are sung in churches all over the world every week

I asked Tommy to talk about how gratitude leads to worship, and worship leads to hope.

We had a wonderful conversation that I think will be a blessing to you.

Scripture:

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. Let your reasonableness[a] be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with 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.

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.

Philippians 4:6-8 ESV

Wisdom in the Waveforms (Replay of S2E61)
1324

What Does the Bible Say About What We Say?

(Replay of Season 2, Episode 61)

Some thoughts on the wisdom of looking at the waveforms.

Scriptures Mentioned

Proverbs 10:19 (AMP) When there are many words, transgression and offense are unavoidable, But he who controls his lips and keeps thoughtful silence is wise.

Proverbs 11:9 “Evil words destroy one’s friends; wise discernment rescues the godly.

Proverbs 15:4 “Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.”

Proverbs 16:24 “Kind words are like honey – sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”

Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”

Proverbs 18:4 “A person’s words can be life-giving water; words of true wisdom are as refreshing as a bubbling brook.”

Proverbs 12:18 “There is one who speaks rashly like he thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”

Proverbs 25:18 “Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow.”

Luke 6:43-45 “For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.”

Proverbs 21:23 “Whosoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.”

James 3:5 “In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.”

James 1:26 “If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless.”

Proverbs 17:18 “Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.”

Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”

Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”

Romans 14:12 “So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.”

Matthew 12:36 “But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an account for it in the day of judgement.”

Friday Conversations: Annie Grace
3430

Annie Grace’s Book is Not About Alcohol

Okay; Annie’s book This Naked Mind: Control Alcohol, Find Freedom, Discover Happiness, and Change Your Life actually IS about alcohol. But in my opinion, it’s about alcohol in the same sense that Hemingway’s classic The Old Man and the Sea is about fishing. Sure, Hemingway wrapped his tale in the metaphors of fishing, but the story is about fighting a colossal battle against an almost impossible set of foes and difficult circumstances, believing in himself, and ultimately overcoming all those challenges and inspiring others with his story.

Annie’s story is one of overcoming an unhealthy relationship with alcohol (hint: there is actually no “healthy” relationship with alcohol). She decided to dive into researching it on her own, to try and understand her own behavior and take back control of her own life. It wasn’t easy, but she’s now eight years into her new, free life, and she’s changing the world.

I’m going to do a Self-Brain Surgery Saturday episode about alcohol sometime. But for today, let Annie show you how she found a path to freedom through research and a commitment to discovering the truth. Here’s what she now believes, in her own words:

* I believe (and the science says!) that a positive approach is far more effective than a negative approach.

* Scare tactics & willpower don’t work over the long term and true, lasting change comes from positive desire.

* As a first step we must put down the weapons of shame and blame. Let ourselves off the hook and then understand our power.

* We are not powerless. In fact, the more we know and understand, the more powerful we become.

* There is no ‘right way’, but I have found that the path to changing your thinking, and therefore your desire, can be the most fun and least painful way to change.

Here’s the “official” story from her great website:

At 26, Annie Grace was the youngest Vice President in a multinational company’s history, and her drinking career began in earnest; by 35, she was in a global C-level marketing role, responsible for 28 countries. Drinking close to two bottles of wine a night became a ritual. Annie Grace’s professional success came at a personal price she no longer wanted to pay. She knew alcohol was no longer serving her. Yet, she didn’t want to suffer through life in a daily battle for sobriety, feeling deprived and constantly trying to avoid temptation.

Annie Grace revamped her own relationship with alcohol — she stripped it of its power and changed her beliefs about booze being a reward — and today she helps others across the globe do the same. Her approach helps people where rehabs have not. She’s created a brand new way to look at the role of alcohol in our lives, establishing a safe space for those who question their drinking but haven’t self-diagnosed as alcoholics stuck in denial of an incurable disease. Annie Grace preaches compassion, knowing its power over shame and blame is the best way to achieve lasting change. And, she offers a proven alternative to the largely ineffective recipe for so-called “success”—the one that says anything less than 100% abstinence is failure. Annie Grace doesn’t teach people how to be sober; she helps them quash their desire to drink in the first place.

Annie’s 30-day Alcohol Experiment is, in her words, “An effortless way to interrupt your patterns, restore your health and get back in touch with the version of yourself that didn’t need alcohol to relax or enjoy life.” She’s helped millions of people around the world break free from the power of alcohol, nicotine, and other behaviors that limit lives and steal joy.

If you’re off the road and stuck in the grass, and you’re tired of the wheels spinning but you not going anywhere, then maybe it’s not time to give up and quit and decide that God has rejected you and that it’s too hard and you’ve been singled out for failure and abandonment. Because he’s promised you otherwise.

Scripture: Haggai 1:5-6

Mind Change Monday: The Words
2779

What do our words have to do with our brain?

A look at what happens in the brain when we cuss, and what happens in our spirits when someone cusses us. Do science and the bible agree about whether cussing is good for your brain?

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart    be pleasing in your sight,    Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14, NIV

So if you know the right way to live and ignore it, it is sin—plain and simple. James 4:17 VOICE

When Life Brings Us Pain, We Have Two Choices

We can either sit down with our hurt and let it define the rest of our life, or we can press into it and let God lead us through. 

Today we look at Exodus 20-34 and see that the path to finding the light again always starts in the darkness. Will you go there with me?

Friday Conversations: Alisa Childers
2979

Today’s Friday Conversation draws an important distinction between “your truth,” and “The truth.”

So much in our culture today sounds true when we hear it. “Live your truth,” “I am enough,” “God just wants us to be happy,” and more. But what if those things that the world promises will make us happier are actually lies that keep us imprisoned, trapped in a cycle of chasing targets we can’t hit, comparing ourselves to others, and finding ourselves anxious, exhausted, and self-obsessed?

In today’s conversation, we meet a former pop star-turned-Christian writer, apologist, theologian, and mom who wants to help clear away these popular deceptions and help us find The Truth again.

Join me for a great talk with one of my favorite authors and podcasters, Alisa Childers.

Official bio:

Alisa Childers is a wife, mom, author, podcaster, blogger, speaker, and worship leader. She was a member of the award-winning CCM recording group ZOEgirl. She is currently a respected speaker at apologetics and Christian worldview conferences, as well as the host of her popular YouTube channel. Alisa's story was featured in the documentary, American Gospel: Christ Crucified. She has been published at the Gospel Coalition, Crosswalk, the Stream, For Every Mom, Decision Magazine, and the Christian Post, and her blog post "Girl, Wash Your Face? What Rachel Hollis Gets Right . . . and Wrong" received more than one million views.

Alisa’s latest book, Live Your Truth and Other Lies

Are you tired of feeling like you have to check social media to find out what you’re supposed to think? Are you weary of the latest self-help books that promise to set you free but only imprison you with laundry lists of studies to consider, positive affirmations to recite, and Facebook groups to join?We’ve all seen the memes that populate the internet: live your truth, follow your heart, you only have one life to live. They sound nice and positive. But what if these slogans are actually lies that unhinge us from reality and leave us anxious and exhausted? Another Gospel? author Alisa Childers invites you to examine modern lies that are disguised as truths in today’s culture. Everyday messages of peace, fulfillment, and empowerment swirl around social media. On the surface, they seem like sentiments of freedom and hope, but in reality they are deeply deceptive.In Live Your Truth (and Other Lies), Alisa will help you to:

* uncover the common lies repeated within progressive circles

* hold on to the soul-restoring truths that God’s Word offers

* be empowered to live the way your Creator designed you

Being the captain of your own destiny and striving to make your dreams a reality is a huge burden that you were never meant to bear. Discover true freedom instead.

It’s New Thing November!

It’s a new month, and God wants to do new things in your life. But sometimes, it feels like he’s fallen silent, like he’s not answering our prayers or coming through for us.

Why?

Today’s podcast looks into how we can’t expect God to do new things if we refuse to change old things that are holding us back.

Overwhelmed
1276

What to Do When You Feel Overwhelmed

(Replay of Season 4, Episode 71. Back with an all-new Tuesdays with Tata tomorrow!)

A quick conversation about how to prepare for and deal with overwhelm.

Self-Brain Surgery Tip #15:

The secret to overcoming overwhelm is to stop worrying about all the things you need to do. Pick one and do it. Then do that again. You’ll feel so much better, and you’ll have two less things to do!

Scriptures:

When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.Psalm 94:19Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.John 14:1We have troubles all around us, but we are not defeated. We do not know what to do, but we do not give up the hope of living. We are persecuted, but God does not leave us. We are hurt sometimes, but we are not destroyed.2 Corinthians 4:8-9Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you restMatthew 11:28I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.John 16:33Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.1 Peter 5:7But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Romans 8:37-38Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.John 14:27But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD GOD is an everlasting rockIsaiah 26:3–4Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer; from the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint. Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.Psalm 61:1-2

Quiet Time: Psalm 19

This Quiet Time Gives Us a New Approach to Bible Study

When we read the Bible, it’s important ask questions, seek resources to broaden our understanding, and try to find out where we sit in the story we’re reading.

Psalm 19 gives us a perfect model of this approach: God’s creation is amazing and shows his faithfulness, his word is powerful and necessary for a happy and solid life, and WE can only find solid ground and true happiness by trying to be more like him, and allowing him to redeem us.

Scripture: Psalm 19

Don't Wreck Yourself
1370

Sometimes, God seems really far away.

(Replay of Season 3, Episode 22 for Wildcard Wednesday!)

Today, I want to talk about the parallels between two passages I keep running into that seem opposite of each other Isaiah and James describe two sets of life change: one is God's dream for what he wants to do for us, and the other is what we should do when we realize that our issues are keeping us from being close to God.

Scriptures Mentioned

Isaiah 61: 1-3

1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,    because the Lord has anointed me    to proclaim good news to the poor.He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,    to proclaim freedom for the captives    and release from darkness for the prisoners,2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor    and the day of vengeance of our God,to comfort all who mourn,

3     and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty    instead of ashes,the oil of joy    instead of mourning,and a garment of praise    instead of a spirit of despair.They will be called oaks of righteousness,    a planting of the Lord    for the display of his splendor.

James 4: 1-10

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. 3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.

4 You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world means enmity against God? Therefore, anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think Scripture says without reason that he jealously longs for the spirit he has caused to dwell in us? 6 But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says:

“God opposes the proud    but shows favor to the humble.”

7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.

Acts17:27 “God did this so that they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one of us.”

Matthew 7:3-5

Why do you see the speck in your neighbor’s eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? 4 Or how can you say to your neighbor, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while the log is in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor’s eye.

You've Got a Friend
1284

It’s good to know you’ve got a friend who will always come through for you

That’s what our daughter Kalyn told me when she picked the James Taylor song, You’ve Got a Friend for her to dance to with me at her wedding last weekend in Alabama.

Kalyn only asked two things of me for her wedding: to dance with her to that old song (I used to sing it to her when she was little), and to make a short speech at the reception.

I’m not much of a dancer, but we got through it. The speech, though, was harder. What do you say to bless your youngest child as she starts her married life?

I chose to remind her and her husband Noah that the only solid ground for our lives is found on the reliability of God’s promises.

Our friend Lisa Bevere wrote, “Your children will either inherit God’s promises or your fears.”

Today’s podcast is a look at the scripture I shared with Kalyn and Noah, and the good news is, it’s for you (and me) today, too!

You don’t have to be afraid of life, as long as you have promises to hold onto.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29:11-13, NIV

We finish with my friend Tommy Walker’s version of one of my favorite hymns, Standing on the Promises.

Mind Change Monday: The 5 R’s of Mind Management
1714
The 5 R's of Mind Management Will Set You Up For Success!
  1. Renew. "Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete." (Romans 12:2)

  2. Reset. "Finally, brothers and sisters, fill your minds with beauty and truth. Meditate on whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is good, whatever is virtuous and praiseworthy." (Philippians 4:8)

  3. Retake. "We are taking prisoners of every thought, every emotion, and subduing them into obedience to the Anointed One." (II Corinthians 10:5)

  4. Be Realistic. "If we go around bragging, "We have no sin," then we are fooling ourselves and are strangers to the truth. But if we own up to our sins, God shows that He is faithful and just by forgiving us of our sins and purifying us from the pollution of all the bad things we have done. If we say, "We have not sinned," then we depict God as a liar and show that we have not let His word find its way into our hearts." (Noting the truth of our own issues allows us to set our minds/hearts towards defeating them) (I John 1:8-10)

  5. Ready to Roll. "Stay focused (set your mind) on what’s above, not on earthly things, because your old life is dead and gone. Your new life is now hidden, enmeshed with the Anointed who is in God." (Colossians 3: 2-3)

Surgery Is A Balance Between Power and Finesse

(Note: I'm taking a day off! Here's a helpful episode from last year, one of my favorites!)

So is life. 

Here are some musings on paradox, on baseball, on things that sound opposite but have to coexist, on how to be tender in a hard world.

Thanks to Jon Swanson for inspiration. Here's Jon's essential daily blog.

Scriptures mentioned

Romans 11:22

“Note then the kindness and the severity of God..”

Romans 8:35

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation or anguish, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?”

Isaiah 2:4He will judge between the nations    and will settle disputes for many peoples.They will beat their swords into plowshares    and their spears into pruning hooks.

Joel 3:10Beat your plowshares into swords,and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weak say, “I am a warrior.”

Self-Brain Surgery Saturday #5: The Lousy Attitude Lobotomy
1534

Sometimes We Need to Adjust Our Own Attitudes IF We Want to Make Progress!

Click here to download the transcript!

In this episode, we'll take the bad thought biopsy results from last week and use them to accomplish real life change. We dig in under the hood and learn to lobotomize our lousy attitudes. Negative thoughts come in two categories: those there to motivate us when we need to make positive changes, and those that are the result of disordered, negative thinking. Learning to tell the difference is important if we want to become healthier, feel better, and be happier. If you want a better tomorrow, you have to make changes in your life, and you have to start today.

Today, we pick apart an old Hebrew proverb, and mine it for a great lesson that’s as timely today as it was in those days.

The Anxiety Lifestyle
2696

Life is hard. And it can produce stress and anxiety for all of us sometimes.

But synapses that fire together wire together, and it’s possible to teach our brains how to live an anxiety lifestyle, so that we frequently slip into anxiety and stress even when nothing is actually happening.

This episode will help us learn to break the cycle of fear and anxiety, cultivate calm, and make a huge difference in our quality of life.

Scripture: II Corinthians 1:8-11

This episode was inspired by Jon Swanson and Brené Brown.

Self-Brain Surgery Saturday #4: The Thought Autopsy
2458

It’s Self-Brain Surgery Saturday!

Today’s operation is the Thought Autopsy. It’s a super-powerful technique you can use to look critically at what your were thinking about during times that were particularly good or bad, successful or not, happy or sad. Thoughts become things, and learning to go back and retrospectively dissecting our own thinking during such times is a superpower for learning how to replicate the good and avoid the bad outcomes next time we encounter a similar circumstance.

Scripture: Isaiah 44:14-20, Isaiah 45:20

30 Good Decisions: Manage or Change?
948

Are We Managing Our Lives, or Really Changing Them?

Our last good decision for September is to commit to real change, instead of just managing things over and over!

I see people in my office every week who are hurting, and often times I can offer them a fix for their problem. But some folks just want to manage their pain, take a pill, or do something that's quicker and less scary than having surgery.

This episode was inspired by Tommy Walker's song Water Into Wine, which was written out of the story in John 2:1-5 .

In the story, Jesus changed water into wine. This wasn't just a little change of the water. He didn't add some powder to it and stir it up. He actually transformed it into the best wine the people had ever tasted.

Take a few minutes and look into this question with me: are you tired of just trying to manage the issues and problems you're dealing with in your life, or do you have the courage to actually change them for good? 

Scriptures mentioned: John 2:1-5 , Isaiah 51:1-2, Isaiah 61:1-3

Here are some principles to help manage our minds and behaviors when life seems to be handing us big losses. We'll look at the psychology of investing, and apply it to the rest of our lives. And we'll see God as the God who can give us late-market rallies, 4th quarter comebacks, and who makes a way where there is no way.

Prepare for the Coming Storm
2392

Storms are going to come in life. How we prepare for them makes all the difference.

When my last book came out, I did a podcast interview in which I was asked a strange question: When did Noah build the arc?

The answer: Before it started raining.

Look, storms happen in life. Hard times come, but when things get hard, strong people get busy. And when great opportunities come, we need to be ready. 

Let’s pick up the hammer and start building that arc. Because the rain is coming. Because something great is coming, and we need to be ready. Something hard is coming, and we need to get our feet on more solid ground, even if we have to build a boat to get there.

Self-Brain Surgery Saturday #3: Sever Sick Synapses
1674

Synapses are where the business of the nervous system happens.

Lately, we’ve been talking about the basics of self-brain surgery to learn how to think about our thinking, and the ideas behind my new book, Hope is the First Dose.

But this isn’t just some “self-help” or motivational speaker-type thing. Because the vast majority of your life, the decisions you make, the relationships you have, the things you accomplish or strive for come out of how you think: your attitudes, your thought patterns. Everything about how you handle stress, unexpected challenges, and the hard parts of life is determined by your thinking.

But the problem is, most of us spend our lives reacting to our thinking, because we never think about our thinking.

And the reality is, our baseline thoughts are not very reliable most of the time. Why? That answer is rooted in the science of how our nervous systems are wired. The bad news is that your nervous system has a set of responses to challenges, threats, and stresses, and that set of responses isn’t very specific. In other words, you basically feel the same things in your body when a tiger is actually chasing you as you do when you hear a sound in the next room and wonder if someone’s breaking into your house- even if it’s just the ice maker. Those triggered responses aren’t very helpful when they make us reflexively freak out.

But the good news is, your brain can be trained to separate the response from the stimulus. But it requires brain surgery.

That’s why I’m always saying, “You can’t change your life until you change your mind.”

In other words, if you keep thinking the same thoughts- if you never change how you look at things or the mental framework from which you approach the world- then you’re going to keep experiencing the same patterns and outcomes.

And the part of the nervous system that connects two nerves, or nerves and muscles or other organs, is called a synapse. In your brain, there are about 100 trillion of them. Trillion with a T. And when those synapses don’t work right, you don’t work right.

Today, we’re going to look at two diseases that affect the synapses between your nerves and your muscles. And I want to show you a little of how the nervous system works, so we can see how important it is to make sure we have healthy synapses.

If you want to become healthier, feel better, and be happier, you’ve got to think about your thinking. But sometimes life creates unhealthy connections- sick synapses- that trigger thought patterns and behaviors in us we’re not even aware of.

You can’t change your life until you change your mind. And severing sick synapses- breaking down those bad connections life has created and making better ones- is a key to getting that done.

Remember Proverbs 17:27-28 in The Passion Translation (TPT):

27 Can you bridle your tongue when your heart is under pressure?

That’s how you show that you are wise.

An understanding heart keeps you cool, calm, and collected,

no matter what you’re facing.

That’s one of the secrets to becoming infinitely happier, friend.

Learning to stay cool, calm, and collected no matter what we’re facing. That’s useful during any problem you’re facing, but it’s also useful in everyday life. And it doesn’t happen by accident. It happens by severing sick synapses. My friend, we’re going to learn how, and we’re going to start today.

What to Do While You Wait
1742

Do you find yourself wondering where God is?

Wondering why God seems to be taking forever to answer your prayers? Wondering why everything seems so hard all the time? Are you so tired of being so tired? If so, a good decision you can make is to learn to grow while you’re waiting!

Here’s a short lesson about the latin phrase mutatis mutandis, which means “after the necessary changes have been made.”

Psalm 13

Habakkuk 1

Isaiah 42:8-9

Own It
762
Self-Brain Surgery Tip #7:

(It's Tata's birthday! Email him if you'd like to say hello! lee@drleewarren.com )


When you make a mistake, admit it to yourself and correct it going forward. Excuses build the false idea in your brain that it’s not really your fault, and you’ll be more likely to do it again. Own it, recalibrate, move forward and you’ll be happier!


It's No-Slip November friend! In the Bible, we read of how the Israelites turned an 11-day trip into a 40-year-long journey through the desert. And many of us are tired of covering the same ground over and over in our lives instead of finally breaking through to where God wants us to go. 


So it's time to use that self-brain surgery tip, stop making excuses, and get after it! Are you with us?

When God Says No
1976
When You Can't Hear Truth in Your Own Brain, You Need Better Words

(REPLAY of Season 5, Episode 89 for Wild Card Wednesday)


“Take to heart all the words by which I am warning you today, that you may command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of this law. For it is no empty word for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess.” (Deuteronomy 32:46–47)


In this episode, we’re going to look at how God’s words- all of them- have the ability to give meaning and purpose to our lives. How we have need of them for all the things we’ll face in our lives. How we can rely on them when the massive thing happens.


And how sometimes God says, “You can’t have that.” So what do we do when it feels empty and void? We need some words in there, and God always has them. But we have to start today. 


Scripture: Isaiah 55:11

Self-Brain Surgery Saturday #2: The Gratitude Graft
1868

It's Self-Brain Surgery Saturday!

Today's operation is The Gratitude Graft.

Learning how to be grateful in any situation is a super neuroscience power that will increase resilience, hope, and happiness.

Scriptures:

30 Good Decisions: Hobson’s Choices
2002

It's Throwback Thursday!

In September, we're making 30 good decisions. One of them is to learn to settle Hobson's Choices.

Life is a Series of Hobson's Choices

Hobson's choice

A Hobson's choice is a free choice in which only one thing is offered. Because a person may refuse to accept what is offered, the two options are taking it or taking nothing. In other words, one may "take it or leave it". Wikipedia

There are some things you need to settle if you’re going to be happy. What are those for you? Write them down. Start praying for peace around them. Start clarifying the true things in your life, and disavow yourself from the notion that you need to have a pain-free life in order to be happy. The degree to which you couple emotion and circumstance in your life is inversely proportional to your ability to be happy.

And what kills us, is the unwillingness to accept the quantum duality that life is hard and we can be happy anyway. We focus on the but and the and and the woe and the oh no and we forget the tho and yet.

Scriptures Mentioned

John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

John 10:10  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Mark 9:28-29 After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” 29 He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.

Luke 18:1 Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.

Matthew 5:30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.

Hebrews 12:1-4

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart. 4 In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.

Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Psalm 34:18 The Lord is close to the brokenhearted    and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Life Change Starts in Your Brain with Dr. Daniel Amen
3782

Tomorrow Is Mind Change Monday #1!

I recently spoke to my friend, probably the world's most famous psychiatrist, Dr. Daniel. That will come out tomorrow, on the first episode of Mind Change Monday. 

To get ready, I'm giving to a throwback to an amazing conversation I had a while back Dr. Amen!

(Originally YST021, August 2014)

Dr. Daniel Amen is a bestselling author, internationally renowned psychiatrist, and founder of the Amen Clinic.

Dr. Amen was one of the first neuroscientists to realize that traditional psychiatric diagnostic testing was inadequate for many patients. He began using functional brain imaging to find out what was really happening inside people's minds, and his work has saved or improved literally thousands of people's lives. His books and his influence have impacted my life and practice, and he's an incredibly gracious and inspirational man.

This is a great interview. Dr. Amen is so passionate, and his message is simple: your brain dictates almost everything about how you experience life. You can change it if you try; you're not stuck with the same old problems and behaviors you've always had. Change your brain, change your life.

You can learn more about Dr. Amen by clicking here. 

Remember: If you want a better tomorrow, you have to make changes in your life, and you have to start today.

The Last Word
1976

When You Can't Hear Truth in Your Own Brain, You Need Better Words

“Take to heart all the words by which I am warning you today, that you may command them to your children, that they may be careful to do all the words of this law. For it is no empty word for you, but your very life, and by this word you shall live long in the land that you are going over the Jordan to possess.” (Deuteronomy 32:46–47)

In this episode, we’re going to look at how God’s words- all of them- have the ability to give meaning and purpose to our lives. How we have need of them for all the things we’ll face in our lives. How we can rely on them when the massive thing happens.

And how sometimes God says, “You can’t have that.” So what do we do when it feels empty and void? We need some words in there, and God always has them. But we have to start today. 

Scripture: Isaiah 55:11

13 Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

When life makes your situation seem impossible, you have to have a strategy ready. Here it is.

Self-brain surgery tip #4:

The more you think about something, the more easily it returns to your mind in the future. Synapses that fire together, wire together. This is why negative thinking is so harmful: it automates negativity in your brain. Change it to something positive!

A few thoughts on generational family issues, neuroscience, and the power of Jesus to break chains.

When life makes your situation seem impossible, you have to have a strategy ready. Here it is.
Self-brain surgery tip #4:

The more you think about something, the more easily it returns to your mind in the future. Synapses that fire together, wire together. This is why negative thinking is so harmful: it automates negativity in your brain. Change it to something positive!


A few thoughts on generational family issues, neuroscience, and the power of Jesus to break chains.

The Storm is Not in You (S5E76)
1418
What to Do When Your Brain Won't Let You Sleep

One night last year, there was a terrible storm, and I couldn't sleep. After hours of tossing and turning, I remembered a song from Matt Redman called Songs in the Night. One of the lines is, "So when I am in the storm, Lord the storm is not in me."


Then I remembered Psalm 77, in which Asaph handles anxiety and insomnia by singing... songs in the night! 


Most of the time when I can't sleep, though, it's not because of a storm outside. Usually, it's in my own brain. 


Join me for quiet time this morning and we'll get our minds right for the coming day.


We finish with prayer and a song from Highlands Worship, Jesus You Alone.

Doubt isn't your enemy. You just have to change your mind about it. 

Self-brain surgery tip #8:

Doubt is not a symptom of faithlessness. It says, “I don’t know,” & is a fork in the road. Fear says, “No.” Faith says, “Yes.” Doubt isn’t weakness; it’s an opportunity to trust in the Yes.

Running the Race (All-In August #5)
2174

Life is a race we’re all running.

Here are some thoughts on pressing on, overcoming resistance, helping others, and making it through!

Scriptures mentioned:

I Corinthians 9:24-27

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control,[b] lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

Psalm 37:3-5

Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control,[b] lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.


Psalm 37:3-5


Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him, and he will act.

The Self-Brain Surgery of Selective Attention (S5E56)
1365
Among all the creatures on Earth, God only gave humans the gift of selective attention. 

You have a remarkable, life-changing superpower that allows you to literally decide what you're going to think about. But it takes self-brain surgery to learn how to harness it for good. 


Self-brain surgery tip #25:

It takes the same amount of work to be in a bad mood as it does to be in a good mood. And both are decisions.


Music by James Taylor and Darrell Evans

All-In (S5E54)
1186
If You're Tired of Struggling, It's Time to Go All In

A short conversation about what it looks like if we stop doing the same things over and over without seeing progress, and instead go all in to let God help us. 


My Focus on the Family interview
Mark Batterson's book All In
Scriptures Mentioned: 

Proverbs 3:5-6 
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.


Revelation 3:20 
20 Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.


II Chronicles 16:9
For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him. 


Isaiah 30:1 


“Ah, stubborn children,” declares the Lord,
“who carry out a plan, but not mine,
and who make an alliance, but not of my Spirit,
    that they may add sin to sin


Isaiah 31:1
31 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help
    and rely on horses,
who trust in chariots because they are many
    and in horsemen because they are very strong,
but do not look to the Holy One of Israel
    or consult the Lord!


Isaiah 30:15, 19-22
15 For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel,
“In returning and rest you shall be saved;
    in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”


19 For a people shall dwell in Zion, in Jerusalem; you shall weep no more. He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. As soon as he hears it, he answers you. 20 And though the Lord give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself anymore, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. 21 And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. 22 Then you will defile your carved idols overlaid with silver and your gold-plated metal images. You will scatter them as unclean things. You will say to them, “Be gone!”

Visual Aids are a Great Learning Tool

©JUL 28TH, 2022 by Dr. Lee Warren

Today I'm sharing a technique I use when I'm studying (the Bible or anything else), as a way to visually see and remember the lesson I'm trying to learn.

We use Psalm 37 as a guide to see red lights and green lights God shows us that will help us avoid pain, find peace, and change our minds!

Bandages for a Thousand Little Cuts (S5E47)
1386
Sometimes life can be overwhelming

But you don't have to feel overwhelmed! 


Here are some thoughts on what to do when life makes you say, "Are you kidding me? More?"


I found an amazing list of scriptures, and I can't do a better job than this blogger named Haley Walker did in compiling them:


Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. Matthew 11:28-29


I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint. Jeremiah 31:25


He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Isaiah 40:29


My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:26


For who is God besides The Lord? And who is the Rock except our God? It is God who arms me with strength and keeps my way secure. Psalm 18:31-32


Yes, my soul, find rest in God, my hope comes from Him. Psalm 62:5
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13


He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10


The Lord replied, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” Exodus 33:14


To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me. Colossians 1:29


Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. Make level paths for your feet, so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. Hebrews 12:12-13


In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8


You are my place of quiet retreat, I wait for Your Word to renew me. Psalm 119:114


Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. 2 Corinthians 4:16


Yes, brother, may I have joy from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ. Philemon 1:20


Cast all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7


But those who wait for The Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not grow faint. Isaiah 40:31


And let us not grow weary in doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. Galatians 6:9-10


The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Psalm 34:18


Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16

Sorry for Yourself (S5E45)
1100
I have a question for you.

Do you ever feel sorry for yourself? You know, my life is so hard and no one understands and I'll never get that job or he took my sale or whatever?  


Here's the thing friend: self-pity is one of the most toxic and limiting things we can allow into our lives. And it is ALWAYS within our power to change. Always. 


I wanted to share a small idea with you this week. Like many small ideas, this one can grow if you nurture it a little. It's like a seed that, if you plant and nourish it carefully can become something larger and more wonderful than you ever imagined.

Eliminate Negative Self-Talk! (S5E43)
1604
Sometimes the person who treats you the worst in life is... you.

(Season 1, Episode 68 replay)


Today we’re going to talk about how we talk to ourselves. We’re going to look at something good writers do sometimes, when they create what’s called an “unreliable narrator."


That works great in fiction, to keep the reader guessing and to unfold a story to shape the reader’s perspective.


But the worst thing you can do to yourself in real life is to listen to an unreliable narrator who tells you the wrong story about your own life.


You’re my friend, and I want to help you become healthier, feel better, and be happier. So today we’re going to learn how you can stop talkin’ to my guy all wrong. And we’re going to start stopping it, today!

Hope is a Verb
1819

Hope is a verb: there’s two consistent things about biblical examples of when people feel hopeless, and what they do next, that are important to flesh out: Any time we’re faced with a seemingly hopeless situation, there’s movement and there’s memory. There’s action. There’s a choice made.

You have to fight for hope, friend, because life doesn’t always make it easy. We’re going to learn how hope is a verb, an action word, and we’re going to start today.

Too Late and Too Far (S5E35)
864
Does Life Feel Like It's Too Late and Too Far?

A few years ago, our granddaughter Scarlett started pre-school. At the end of her first day, Lisa (who Scarlett calls 'Missy') was FaceTime-ing with her to see how her day went. Lisa said, "Scarlett, tell Missy all about your first day of school."

Scarlett had had a long day. She was very tired, and she wanted to go to sleep. She looked into the camera, held up her hand, and said, "No Missy. It's too late and too far."

That's all Scarlett had to say. 

Too late and too far.

Have you ever had a day like that?

Sometimes, it seems like our whole life is too late and too far. It's too much, too hard, too expensive, too painful. We can't bring ourselves to face it, or even talk about it, because it's too late and too far.

Fortunately, Scarlett got a good night's sleep and the next day she was great, ready for another day at school.

But in life, sometimes a little rest isn't enough to fix whatever it is that has us feeling like it's too late and too far. 

If you're in a situation like that: the marriage is too far gone, the payments are too late, the tumor is too invasive, the stress is too much, I want to encourage you.

It's not too late, and it's not too far. 

Circumstances in life can really be difficult. Life can be a war, even when you're not in an actual war. But you can be at peace anyway.

To the tired, Jesus said: "Come to Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)

To the weak, God promised: "I can be content in any and every situation through the Anointed One who is my power and strength." (Philippians 4:13)

To those worried about their government, or their country's future, God said: "If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (II Chronicles 7:14)


Also check out Romans 8:37-39 and Psalm 139:7-10



Here's the thing: You can be at rest, at peace, happy, and even joyful regardless of the circumstances of your life. God's on your side, and His promises are always there for the taking to make sure we can enjoy the life He's given us, even when it's hard. 


It's not too late or too far, friend. You just have to start today.

Self-brain surgery tip #17

The best way to stay motivated and achieve your goals is to stop saying you “want” to do something. Decide something you “will” or “must” do, and do that thing. Then do the next thing. Narrower bandwidth = increased efficiency.

The Shape of Our Words (S5E29)

What Does the Bible Say About What We Say?

Some thoughts on the wisdom of looking at the waveforms.


Scriptures Mentioned

Proverbs 10:19 (AMP) When there are many words, transgression and offense are unavoidable, But he who controls his lips and keeps thoughtful silence is wise.


Proverbs 11:9 “Evil words destroy one’s friends; wise discernment rescues the godly.


Proverbs 15:4 “Gentle words bring life and health; a deceitful tongue crushes the spirit.”


Proverbs 16:24 “Kind words are like honey – sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.”


Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”


Proverbs 18:4 “A person’s words can be life-giving water; words of true wisdom are as refreshing as a bubbling brook.”


Proverbs 12:18 “There is one who speaks rashly like he thrusts of a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.”


Proverbs 25:18 “Telling lies about others is as harmful as hitting them with an ax, wounding them with a sword, or shooting them with a sharp arrow.”


Luke 6:43-45 “For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart.”


Proverbs 21:23 “Whosoever keeps his mouth and his tongue keeps himself out of trouble.”


James 3:5 “In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.”


James 1:26 “If you claim to be religious but don’t control your tongue, you are fooling yourself, and your religion is worthless.”


Proverbs 17:18 “Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent.”


Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”


Matthew 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.”


Romans 14:12 “So then each one of us will give an account of himself to God.”


Matthew 12:36 “But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an account for it in the day of judgement.”

Day Off Replay: Change Your Brain with Dr. Daniel Amen (S5E27)
3568
Throwback to an Amazing Conversation with Dr. Daniel Amen!

(Originally YST021, August 2014)


Dr. Daniel Amen is a bestselling author, internationally renowned psychiatrist, and founder of the Amen Clinic.


Dr. Amen was one of the first neuroscientists to realize that traditional psychiatric diagnostic testing was inadequate for many patients. He began using functional brain imaging to find out what was really happening inside people's minds, and his work has saved or improved literally thousands of people's lives. His books and his influence have impacted my life and practice, and he's an incredibly gracious and inspirational man.


This is a great interview. Dr. Amen is so passionate, and his message is simple: your brain dictates almost everything about how you experience life. You can change it if you try; you're not stuck with the same old problems and behaviors you've always had. Change your brain, change your life.


You can learn more about Dr. Amen by clicking here. 


Remember: If you want a better tomorrow, you have to make changes in your life, and you have to start today.
