Anxiety is no joke. Right now in America, nearly 40 million people suffer from some form of panic and anxiety. Worse, a lot of people are embarrassed to seek help and talk about the anxiety they’re experiencing, especially because of the societal stigma often attached to panic and anxiety. Today, Bethel Music's Brian Johnson shares how the panic and anxiety of his early life―panic he’d thought he’d beaten―came back to haunt him.

The journey to become the best version of yourself is a dynamic and fluid process that requires a lot of self-awareness and self-observation, and that process can definitely be painful. But I believe the reward in doing so unlocks the unique potential for which all of us have been created. To that, one of the most powerful tools to self-observation and discovery is the Enneagram. Within the last year, we’ve talked with Ian Cron, and most recently, Sleeping at Last’s Ryan O’Neal. But today,...

We all need more energy, the vitality that helps us stay motivated, focused and productive in life. We know we receive energy from good nutrition, along with working out, adequate sleep and maintaining positivity. But there is another major source for the energy we need: having the right kinds of relationships with others. Not the ones that drain us, but the ones that refuel us.

Here’s the situation: you’re doing everything according to plan, yet nothing seems to be working out. Worse, and I know you all have been here, God seems to be very distant during these difficult seasons of life. And if you’re anything like me, your knee-jerk response is to run. Maybe you heard God speak, but now He seems silent. Maybe you moved forward in faith, but now His presence is nowhere to be found. My friend, welcome to the wilderness―the place between receiving a promise from God...

6/17/2019
More
A few months ago, I met Christina Meredith. She’s a foster care activist, a mental health advocate, a national speaker, and officer in the United States Army. But before any of these things came to be, her story looked quite different. As a child, Christina Meredith was called “Laundry Girl, “Stupid,” and “Slut.” Born into a large, dysfunctional family, Christina was singled-out by her controlling mother and forced to endure years of physical and psychological abuse, not to mention the...

6/10/2019

Well today, I wanted to share a message I recently preached entitled, “If You’re Stuck and Alone, It’s Time to Come Home.” May people live isolated, insulated lives inside themselves—despite having great friends and family around them—because fear, guilt, and shame from the past have told them that it’s too late to find connection and belonging inside relationships. So the question we’re going to tackle today is this: are you and I really alone? I trust you’ll be encouraged and challenged by...

I bet you know how frustrating it is to wake-up for the day with plans to accomplish important tasks, only to find yourself overwhelmed and unaccomplished by the end of the day. Everyone gets 168 hours a week, but it never feels like enough, does it? And you probably know what it feels like for work to eat-up the majority of that time. In fact, many professionals today are working as much as 70 hours a week—leaving less and less for rest, recreation, family, and friends; all the things that...

I really believe that part of your journey to wholeness not only includes decluttering your soul, but also decluttering your home. Why?

And so in today’s conversation, one of the most influential minimalist advocates takes us on a decluttering tour of our own homes, showing us how to decide what to get rid of and what to keep. Meet Joshua Becker. Joshua Becker wasn’t...

Everyone has something to contribute to the world, and when you find out who you really are and discover the unique significance of your life, you won’t ever want to be someone else. But the challenge is that if you turn-on most television shows today or scroll through social media, and you’ll quickly understand that our culture is flooded by copycat syndrome and at the same time, desperate for authenticity and uniqueness; people who show-up in their God-given identity and make a mark upon...

Does it ever seem like you still have to find your purpose or that you’re stuck with a lot of unanswered questions about your true desires for life? And if you’re anything like me, you probably feel the pressure to prove yourself and worry about what others will think, right? It has been one of the greatest challenges in my own life.
