Fear can keep us from trying new things, from learning new things. Shawna shares her struggle with this. Then Perry shares how he uses achievement to deal with his failures and shame and how he’s learning to give up these futile attempts to fix himself. Next Perry and Shawna riff on Matthew 11:28-30: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Then, discipleship isn’t a class you check off your list. Discipleship is a lifetime of learning and growing to know Jesus more and make him known. Finally, what Shawna is learning about her feelings of not being enough and what Perry is learning about his feelings of fear and shame. Share this if it encourages you!
