Life can be really hard if you are trying to figure out how to follow God in your everyday life. Whether you're raising your children, trying to show up well in your workplace or your school, people are tough and messy. And often when we face that kind of trouble or conflict, we're trying to figure out, how do I show up with love? How do I show up with energy?

We can get kind of stuck in that. We can get in our own heads about who we are and what we need to be, and when are we supposed to speak up and when are we supposed to be quiet? It is really hard to know how to be confident in the places that God's called us. 

In today's episode, Nicole reminds us:

  • What insecurity is and why it's hard to shake
  • What Philippians 2 has to say about finding real confidence and lasting peace
  • What it means to work out our salvation with fear and trembling
  • What God's work is in our life, and what our work is in our life (and why knowing the difference makes all the difference!)
