Do you get anxious when you have to make a decision? Do you overthink, overtalk, and overanalyze? When anxiety surrounds every decision, the result can be decision-making paralysis. Our guest will explore this common struggle and then point to the peace that comes from knowing God as your refuge and ever-present help in trouble. Learning to trust God, even when the path is not clear, will give you the courage to move forward one step at a time. When you're faced with decisions both big and small, God offers you something better than certainty and the absence of risk. He promises to be with you. And when you allow the Good Shepherd to lead, you will find that He uses times of decision-making to make you more peaceful and become a better steward of the opportunities in front of you.
Join us as we once again tackle the subject of narcissism and how it impacts the lives around the person with this dangerous and damaging personality type. How do you avoid conflict? How do you co-parent when children are used as pawns in a vicious game of marital chess? We open the phone lines for your questions. But take note – the lines are always lit when our guest joins us on this subject. Call in early so your question can get the clear, biblical answer it deserves.
