Faith Over Fear Episodes
How to Have Peace When God Is Silent - Ep. 110
June 28, 2022 - 25 min
Everything feels easier when we sense God is guiding us. But what do we do when it seems as if God isn’t responding to our prayers? During periods of divine silence, we might assume that we have done something to make God angry or turn away from us. If we carry shame and unhealed wounds, we might be tempted to view God’s supposed non-response as confirmation of the inner lies that tell us we’re worthless, discardable, or a failure. Our assurance grows, however, when we fill those gaps with truth and remember and reflect upon God’s heart.

In this episode, Jennifer Slattery discusses some of the common assumptions people make during periods of divine silence, what these assumptions reveal, and various truths that can help us stand in the full assurance of God’s grace.

The Power of Breath Prayer to Calm Your Anxiety (with Jennifer Tucker) - Ep. 109
June 21, 2022 - 33 min
We believe Christ meant it when He said that He came to set us free and give us a life characterized by joy and peace. We also believe He will show us precisely how to grab hold of that life. To truly experience all that He promised, we’ll need to address our whole selves—the spiritual, mental, and physical components affecting our anxiety. In this episode, Jennifer Tucker shares a tool that incorporates all three of those interconnected components to decrease our inner angst and increase our peace.

The Courage to Embrace Career Risk – Ep. 108
June 14, 2022 - 29 min
It can take a lifetime to discern the best career option for our lives. We all want to feel fulfilled, experience joy, and know that we're able to use our gifts and skills to their full capacity. Humans also have a God-created desire for significance and achievement. When we feel a divine nudge to step forward and to take on new roles or responsibility, many of us wrestle with conflicting emotions. What if we take that step forward and irritate our boss? What if we leave our current employment to work fro another company and regret our decision? What if we're unable to pay our bills? And perhaps worse, what if we remain so paralyzed in fear that we never discover our true potential? In this episode, Career Coach Mary Guirovich shares her story of pursuing then landing her dream job and what God showed her in the process.

Trusting God’s Promise to Use Our Suffering for Good - Ep. 106
May 31, 2022 - 16 min
Our world really stinks sometimes. Jesus never promised us an easy and pain free life. To the contrary. He told us to expect trouble, but God also promised our pain wouldn’t last forever and that he’d use our hardships for good. In this episode, Jennifer Slattery talks with stroke survivor Kelly Campbell about the hope that undergirds a spiritually resilient life.

Trusting God’s Promise to Provide – Ep. 105
May 24, 2022 - 14 min
When we think of God’s promise to provide for us, we often think in terms of physical things like food, clothing, and shelter. But if we search the Bible, we find that He promises us other things as well, things like rest and peace and guidance. When it feels like our needs aren’t being met, we can be still, look around us, and find that God is present and providing, even when it feels like nothing is going the way we think it should.

God’s Promise to Place The Lonely in Families – Ep. 104
May 17, 2022 - 15 min
Sadly, we live in an increasingly disconnected culture where many people are forced to endure the pain of loneliness. Others, perhaps having felt isolated in the past, have developed a strong fear of loneliness. Still others, due to previous wounds, have come to expect rejection and, out of fear of future hurt, remain in emotional hiding. If any of these scenarios resonate with you, be encouraged: God planted the need for connection deep within the human heart, which means He doesn’t want us to live disconnected and He invites us to trust Him to lead us to those with whom we can feel seen, known, and loved.

Trusting God's Presence to Guide Us - Ep. 101
April 26, 2022 - 15 min
No matter how smart, wise, strategic, or well-educated we are, we will all encounter situations during which we need supernatural guidance. In fact, if we want to experience the rich and satisfying life Christ desires for us, we need His wisdom every moment of every day. Because our wisdom is limited and our perception often faulty, when we rely on ourselves, we’re inevitably setting ourselves up for problems. Thankfully, God provides numerous ways we can discern the best course of action for every situation.
