Negative thinking can be miserable – you believe and expect that the worst will happen. God can free us from our negative thinking by teaching us to trust him and love other people.
Often, the challenge that I face is that I get inspired to want to make a difference, but don’t realize that I first must allow God to change me.
Just as our fingerprints are unique, the path to discovering God’s plan for our lives is also unique. But every great pursuit or accomplishment takes sacrifice; it takes the hard work of character, courage, and conviction to discover God’s plan for our life.

If you’re feeling tired, like you can’t do this anymore – always feeling terrible about yourself at church, trying to act a certain way but unfree from the accompanying turmoil inside – this podcast episode, as well as the subsequent ones that will follow, are about helping you get out of that situation.

This study will help you develop a faith that compels us to “Reach Up” and take hold of God’s power to help us break through any barriers that stand in the way of God moving through our lives.
