CHILL OUT Part 3. Today we will be discussing the two L's of CHILL OUT. LISTEN to God (Proverbs 3:5-6) and LISTEN to others around you (Phil 2:3). Often times, trust in society looks a lot different to what God calls us to in His word. How do we as moms and as Christians lean into what God is saying even if it doesn't make sense to us. Not only listening to God vital but also we must listen to our kids and our Husband. What does it look like to live out and practice loving others more than you love yourself? Tune in today as we finish up CHILL and next week we will look into the OUT portion of CHILL OUT.

CHILL OUT: pt 2. Today, we will dive into the H and I. In Mark 6:31 God calls us to "Hit the Breaks" on our lives and lean into the fact that Jesus sees us, knows us, and wants to invite us to trade those moments of intensity with moments of rest. Also in Hebrew 12:1-3, he tells us to ignore the competition and the opposition. We often get distracted by the race of others around us, thinking that ours should be the same as theirs. The fact is that it is not and never will be. That is a gift from the Lord so that we can strip off the comparison that we are always falling into. Come along with us today as we dive deeper into allowing ourselves to hit the breaks and ignore the competition.
