Practices such as mindfulness, stillness, silence and meditation are great forms of discipline for today’s hyper-connected culture. They are certainly trendy topics and much-needed habits for this fast-paced generation we find ourselves living in. And these healthy practices are wonderful at teaching us to sit, reflect and slow down our pace of life. But it’s also important to consider what our stillness is founded on. What are we being mindful about? Who are we being silent for? What is feeding our souls? And what do we consider to be the center of our lives in which all the other practices are founded on and where we find our deep sense of rootedness.

Today’s episode is about drawing our attention and focus back to God so we can honestly ask ourselves one very important question:

Who or what is my life rooted in?

    Oh wow. This was so challenging & at the same time encouraging. I had got to the stage of not wanting to talk about what’s really happening …. how I feel lost in the chaos, inadequate in the circumstances & often misunderstood …because so many folk just throw surface cliches like “You just need to trust” …. “God is sovereign. He has everything under control”. I feel judged, & put down for questioning & struggling & so physically exhausted.
    Thank you so much for your honesty girls. 🙂

    • Hi Joanne, we’re so glad this resonated. Your feedback makes US feel encouraged knowing we’re not alone in our wrestlings. I can totally relate to the “You just need to trust” comment — much easier said than done, right? But Renae and I have learned that, while questioning makes some people feel uncomfortable, it also invites unexpected people into a dialogue whom you might not have ever interacted with before … and that’s a beautiful thing! We’re learning to keep being brave in asking questions and living curiously, and the cool thing is that, God is showing up in surprising ways! We’re learning more about faith by asking these questions than we ever did comfortably sitting in a pew, and so we’ll keep leaning into the tension. It’s encouraging to know you desire to do the same. Keep going! Thanks for taking the time to comment.
