“Am I Really That Fragile?”

Have you ever felt unsure of yourself when someone else was being complimented? Over the weekend Shawna was in a conversation with a friend who was sharing how good someone else is at what Shawna does and it stirred up some insecurities. What do we do with that?

Perry admits, “There are times I don’t feel God’s presence. There are times I doubt that the Jesus story is true. When that happens I go to the historical evidence for the resurrection.”

Shawna was so tired on Monday. Was she yawning? Sleepy? Nope, she was grumpy! She was honest with God about how agitated she was and He helped her to hold her tongue and not sin against Him. Psalm 120:1

What do poisonous snakes biting God’s rebellious people in the desert and a replica of a poisonous snake attached to a pole have to do with Jesus and us. Everything!

When life feels overwhelming and we are unable to move forward, how do we get unstuck? Shawna suggests fixing our eyes on God and worshiping Him.

Imagine yourself in the crowd as Jesus is being crucified, who would you be in that crowd? Jesus mother? The soldier who pierced Jesus’ side? The thief who cursed Jesus? Whoever we are in that crowd, Jesus’ grace reaches out to us.

Shawna Beyer

Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
