Seeing Beyond Your Reflection - Healthy Body Image

Seeing Beyond Your Reflection - Healthy Body Image

"Everyday, you're casting a vote to the person you want to be." James Clear, Atomic Habits

What vote are you casting for the person you want to be?

Learn how to change the way you're thinking about your habits in order to keep them!

Special thanks to Compassion International for making this season of Girl Talk Podcast possible!

What stands in the way of becoming who you want to be? Are you placing more of an emphasis on the reflection in the mirror than the unhealthy thoughts in your mind?

Carol, Tricia and Kelly are talking about body shaming, body image and creating healthy thoughts and habits to become a healthier person.

Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen To Good People?Who is The Holy Spirit?

Who is The Holy Spirit?

This episode of Girl Talk podcast is made possible by Compassion International - we couldn't do it without 'em!

Who is the Holy Spirit? Why does He seem so mysterious to us? 

Carol, Tricia and Kelly are talking about the Holy Spirit, His characteristics and what He means to the Christian faith! 

Think about it:

Do you 'walk in the Spirit'?

How do you know when the Holy Spirit is speaking to you?

What is the Holy Spirit's 'job'?

Scripture to meditate on:

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you." - John 16:7-15

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. - 2 Corinthians 3:17-18

In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, to the praise of his glory. - Ephesians 1:11-14

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. - Romans 8:26-27

And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. You shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers, and you shall be my people, and I will be your God. - Ezekiel 36:26-28

We'll talk about:

What do you feel like is at the heart of imposter syndrome?

What does God say about it?

How can you avoid it?

Remember:

There is a fine line between pride and deep insecurity in dealing with imposter syndrome.

Imposter syndrome battles between the desire to be known and the fear of being known.

"You cannot love a person beyond the label you assign to them. That’s why Jesus tells us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. That’s why Jesus tells us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves.” Dr. Derwin Gray

What Girl Talk Podcast is talking about in this episode:

  • How are we to love in the current culture and climate?
  • How does God instruct us to love?
  • What can you do to love well? Those who are hard to love?

How do we love like Jesus?

  • Listen
  • Ask God for help
  • Be merciful
  • Do good to them
  • Humble
  • Interested
  • Present

Jesus loves people based on who they are, not who they will become

Truth to remember:

  • Love isn’t a feeling
  • You can’t love people based on how you feel
  • God loves us unconditionally
  • God loves you, but He loves you too much to leave you where you are.
