Yesterday, Today, and The Next: Healing the Past, Being Fully Present, and Living Eternity-Driven.

Yesterday, Today, and The Next: Healing the Past, Being Fully Present, and Living Eternity-Driven.

By Emmylou Iman
For those who live as try-hard false versions of themselves. For those who settle for less, believe in the lies and excuses, stuck, and unsure. For those who live below or outside their God-given design and giftedness. Emmylou (and friends) help create a little safe space to help you untangle the human experience and dismantle the false and broken narratives so you can live well and be a better human being to yourself, your family, your relationships, and your community.
After all, our life with God is not just about what happens when we die. Our life with God starts now. So, listen in.

47. The Secret to Healthy Friendships (and Relationships)
This is the podcast for women to come together, not to compare or compete but to celebrate each other and strengthen one-another in the Lord and in His Word. We all have different roles but all of these roles do not define us, they are our assignments. So, we link arms and build a community of women who follow Christ, live as women of God and work as ambassadors for Jesus. Sisters, we are on the same team, a team owned, selected, and coached by God Himself. Through the Bible, God gives us His clear guidance on how we can build up our fellow teammates. In this episode, we talk about two primary things - secrets to healthy friendships and relationships. This is part 1. Listen in. This episode is brought to you by WOW™ Home Groups, WOW™ Courses, and WOW™ Memberships: Leaders' Circle and Warriors' Club. To inquire about Home Groups, Courses and Memberships, email kimberly@womenoneanotheringwomen.org Links + Resources: Instagram Telegram Channel Online: WOW™ Prayer: talk@womenoneanotheringwomen.org Emmy's blog: My Life in the Middle Music by MusicLFiles Philippians 2:1-11   Your Next Action Step: Think about 2-3 friends you have in your life that you can bless with something just because. Bless them with your words, with your encouragement, with your hug and presence, with your time, service or gifts. Go and bless them.

This is the podcast for women to come together, not to compare or compete but to celebrate each other and strengthen one-another in the Lord and in His Word.

So, we link arms and build a community of women who follow Christ, live as women of God and work as ambassadors for Jesus. Sisters, we are on the same team, a team owned, selected, and coached by God Himself. Through the Bible, God gives us His clear guidance on how we can build up our fellow teammates. In this episode, let’s talk about friendships because women and friendships are quite synonymous. Now, we don’t want to do a lousy job of slapping Bible verses to our friends who are suffering when the greatest thing we can do for our friend is to sit in it with them. Find out what kind of friend we want to become. Listen in. This episode is brought to you by WOW™ Home Groups, WOW™ Courses, and WOW™ Memberships: Leaders' Circle and Warriors' Club.

Success is not a comparison of what we have done with what others have done. It is coming up to the level of our best, making the most of our abilities and possibilities. You must decide if you are going to rob the world or bless it with your untapped resources stored within you. You are more than what you have done.

34: Who is my Neighbour?
We are called to act in humility and have a teachable spirit rather than have an attitude of moral superiority. When I am tempted – and believe me, it happens all the time – to put on airs or look down on someone with whom I am working, I am jolted into reality when the truth that it is only by the grace of God and nothing but the grace of God sweeps off my prideful heart.

It is a good and desirable thing to have work that fulfils us. There is nothing inherently wrong about pursuing a great job, but we must remember that it is not necessary for God’s will to be accomplished in our lives. What is necessary is that we are formed into greater Christlikeness in our work. Connect: IG| FB: @rescuingmondays Blog: rescuingmondays.com

27: What do you do?
Our work is a gift. Like the good gifts of education, marriage, friendship, leisure and family, our work influences in great measure the persons we are and the persons we are becoming. Daily we are being formed by the work we do, the people we rub shoulders with, and the skills we acquire. Work is one of the places where we are spiritually formed.

What is the value of the mundane things we do? How do they give our lives significance? It is walking through life with Jesus Christ by faith that makes everything we do have eternal value. Our walk will not be in vain if we take all the learning and the character that has been developed in all the work we have done in this life into the future.

Without knowing Christ, you and I will never experience the life for which we were created. Without knowing Christ, our work will never be all that God intended for it to be. Without knowing the One who created work, our work will never be fulfilling. The good news of work is that we can be transformed and as we are transformed, our work can also be transformed.

A large stewardship of our career or calling in the workplace is faithfully showing up every day no matter how we feel, whether we like our present jobs or not. When we show up we demonstrate to others around us our good in and through our work, we show that we are responsible enough to not be moved by feelings because, trust me, our feelings cannot be relied on, most often than not.

17: Work is Redemption Demonstrating
It would be a mistake to think that Christians should quit their jobs and become Pastors, missionaries or full-time church workers if God has not called you to be any of these. The so-called secular vocation is not bad, it is simply strategic. There’s 100% nothing wrong with this but Christians living only with Christians and working only with Christians would not accomplish God’s whole purpose in the world.

Still in the Stewardship Series, Jabez and I talk about discovering your talents, gift, calling or purpose in your life and how to take good care of it. Being a good steward of the talents and skills the Lord Jesus Christ has given us is reflective of our appreciation to our Creator. We share our own experiences, how we discovered what we're good at and how we stay secure and not compare what we can and can't do with others can and can't do.
