Freedom from... Comparison ”Comparison is the thief of joy.” Theodore Roosevelt
Freedom from... Comparison When I compare my life as it really is to the idealized fantasy I see of others I always lose.
Freedom from... Comparison The lie: my success in life is based on how I measure up to my peers.
Freedom from... Comparison The truth: You are absolutely unique. There is no one on earth you need to measure up to.
Freedom from... Fear The lie: God is not powerful, wise, or loving enough to be trusted with my future.
Freedom from... Fear The truth: God is infinitely powerful, wise, & caring Worry doesn’t help
Philippians 4:6–7 Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Freedom from... Guilt The lie: Some sins and failures are beyond what God will forgive or heal.
Freedom from... Guilt The truth: There’s no sin God won’t forgive. 1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Freedom from... Guilt The truth: There’s no failure He can’t redeem. Romans 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God…
Freedom from... Busyness “We need to put an end to the glorification of busyness.“
Freedom from... Busyness The lie: I am indispensible.
Freedom from... Busyness The truth: I am useful, but not necessary. 1 Corinthians 3:6–7 I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.
