Learning to Thrive {Podcast #702}

If you hit pause to reflect on the state of your life right now, what is the first word that comes to mind that best describes how you feel?

I can only imagine some of the words that might slip off your lips and out of your heart . . .








If this is you, you’re not alone. Between the state of the world amidst COVID and all the turmoil in politics, the culture, and the economy, it is no surprise. But sister, there is another way to live, even when everything around us — including those we’re in a relationship with — is in chaos.

We can thrive when we’re connected to the One who sustains us.

What does that look like exactly? Well, Paul has a distinctly refreshing perspective in his letter to the Philippians. Join me for this episode of the More to Be Podcast to unpack chapter 3 of Philippians with my dear friend and cohost, Kalie Kelch. We consider what a biblical definition of well-being truly looks like and the importance of remembering that we’re simply here on work visas. What do I mean by that? Well, you’ll have to listen to this episode to find out.

By the way, this episode is part of the Let Go and Live: A Vision for Breakthrough Bible study, which you can get access to as a member of the Sisterhood. If you would prefer to watch a video of this episode instead of listening to it (hello, learning styles) and download all the related study resources, join us in the Sisterhood.

Truths to Remember

You are not going to feel connected to God, if you don’t spend time with Him. The Word is a means to understand His voice. – Lisa

What if you simply spent 30 days with the same chapter of Scripture . . . reading, writing it out, and praying through it? – Lisa

Are you struggling to read the Scriptures and understand it? Join us for the Let Go & Live Bible Study to discover how the Holy Spirit can work in you and through you to draw you nearer to God.

God knows every hair on our heads. He is with us, even if we don’t realize it. – Lisa

Where is Jesus in your life? You may actually be in His arms. – Lisa

Jesus suffers for the sin committed against us. He is with us. He takes it with us. – Lisa

By looking back to understand what happened in our past, we can identify where we need to pursue healing from God and find the freedom to live fully in the present. – Lisa

What is holding me back that needs to be reconciled by the cross in order to move forward? – Lisa

To be perfect does not mean the opposite of imperfect. – Lisa

To be perfected by God means that He will finish the work that had begun. – Lisa

Keep pressing on, keep aligning with Christ, keep in step with your Savior. – Kalie

Let go and live . . . let go of what keeps you from pursuing God and live in His promises and healing work. – Lisa

Live with a forward-thinking mind in the grace of Jesus Christ. – Kalie

But we must hold onto the progress we already made. Philippians 3:16

We think we need a passport for heaven, but actually, we need our passport for here on this earth. We’re only here on a work visa because we’re citizens of heaven. – Lisa

The Let Go & Live Bible study is designed to help you discover how to apply biblical principles alongside practical tips for addressing emotional wellbeing so that you can show up in your relationships, work, and ministry without the triggers getting the best of you. 

Each month you can listen to the Let Go and Live episode on the More to Be Podcast or watch the teaching video in the Sisterhood, and then use the resources (accessible exclusively in the Sisterhood) to dive deeper into Scripture and to help you apply the principles to your relationship with God and others. In the Sisterhood, you’ll find these Let Go & Live resources, plus hundreds of others:

  • Let Go & Live Printable
  • Let Go & Live Bible Verses
  • Podcast Reflection Guide
  • Audio Recording and/or Video Teaching
  • Let Go & Live Scripture Writing Worksheet
  • Let Go & Live Prayer Journaling Worksheet
  • Let Go & Live Wellbeing Guide
  • Scripture Screensavers

You might be wondering how this study could fit into your life? ​It’s as flexible as it can be. At the beginning of each month, you’ll get the content through the Sisterhood and then you can set aside a few hours a month (yep, a month, not a week) to study the key passage and embrace the process of Scripture memory, prayer, and reflection. 

So what are you waiting for?

This is the year, sister, to let go of whatever is holding you back from the life God designed for you to live — a life in which you become brighter and more beautiful, more like Jesus, through a fresh encounter with Him and His Word.
