Military veteran and pastor, Delmus Gillis, is sharing how his unique experiences have shaped His relationship with God and how the Gospel has transformed his life, his family, and the way the chooses to show up to the responsibilities of every day life. In this episode, we talk about the struggle with anxiety that is overwhelmingly evident in our culture today and how to overcome it with continually choosing to trust in God and surrender in our daily lives. Delmus also shares one challenge for men that that could immediately impact our families, our churches, our communities, and our nation.
In this episode, host Rachel Sweatt is sharing how intentionally remembering that HIS grace fills in all our gaps can help us fight discouragement and overwhelm, while simultaneously building our faith + cultivating gratitude. When we fail, fall short, or just don’t quit hit the mark on our intentions, goals, etc. this is one way we can remain ENCOURAGED in our pursuit.
In 2 Corinthians 12:9, we are given a promise that has become the soundtrack to my life lately.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
When we look back at the past season of our lives, we can be discouraged or encouraged. We can choose to either see our shortcomings, OR we can see and CELEBRATE where God filled in every gap.
When we look towards the future, we can either be overwhelmed at what’s to come or grateful that we’ve got God on our side, ready and willing to fill the gaps with the hard-fought for grace made possible by JESUS that we have the privilege of experiencing every day. Isn’t that the BEST NEWS?!
Thank you, Jesus!
On today’s episode I’m sharing something a little raw that God has been teaching me over the past few months. I try to be as transparent as possible, and I just knew that this was the time to share a little bit more of the “struggle bus” side of what I do. Ha! If you’ve ever stepped out to do something God put in your heart and things got a little bumpy along the way, this one’s for you! Never forget that He is after our heart, not our perfection. Have a great week!
