Episode 17: Lead the Conversation – Christy Brunk

July 30, 2017

We had so much fun talking with Christy Brunk on Episode 16 and appreciate the points she brought up about persevering and being real.  On this week’s episode, Megan and Becky share some listener comments and explore more ways we can see the beauty in our days while keeping it real.  Especially with social media having such an influence in our lives, how might we be authentic yet not overly pessimistic or unrealistically positive.  Rather than celebrating failures, knowing that we need to practice seeing that we should celebrate the redemption of our failures by a loving Father who is molding us more into who He created us to be.

 

 

Show Notes:

  • “The great thing, if one can, is to stop regarding all the unpleasant things as interruptions of one’s ‘own,’ or ‘real’ life. The truth is of course that what one calls the interruptions are precisely one’s real life — the life God is sending one day by day.”  –C.S. Lewis
  • Teaching From Rest  by Sarah Mackenzie
  • Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, do; and the God of peace will be with you.”  Phillipians 4:8-9

 

LItany of Humility:

  • O Jesus! meek and humble of heart, Hear me.
    From the desire of being esteemed,

    Deliver me, Jesus.

    From the desire of being loved…
    From the desire of being extolled …
    From the desire of being honored …
    From the desire of being praised …
    From the desire of being preferred to others…
    From the desire of being consulted …
    From the desire of being approved …
    From the fear of being humiliated …
    From the fear of being despised…
    From the fear of suffering rebukes …
    From the fear of being calumniated …
    From the fear of being forgotten …
    From the fear of being ridiculed …
    From the fear of being wronged …
    From the fear of being suspected …

    That others may be loved more than I,
    Jesus, grant me the grace to desire it.

     

    That others may be esteemed more than I …
    That, in the opinion of the world,
    others may increase and I may decrease …
    That others may be chosen and I set aside …
    That others may be praised and I unnoticed …
    That others may be preferred to me in everything…
    That others may become holier than I,
     
    provided that I may become as holy as I should…
