The results are in

A label that tries to cling to you is:

Fear

Jesus longs for you to move from feeling fearful to resting in His peace.

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."

— John 14:27

So what does it really mean?

You feel most at ease when everything seems under control. You have analyzed every angle and prepared for possible scenarios. You have plans and back up plans. Your anxiety rises when you feel like you might miss something important and outcomes could unravel. There is a restlessness within you that you cannot seem to quiet no matter how often you tell yourself there is no need to worry. 

Hello there!

BEFORE WE GET TOO FAR INTO THIS...

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Erica Wiggenhorn.

Erica Wiggenhorn, Women's Speaker and Author

I used to joke that I had a PhD in fear. It drove my life. It derailed my relationships because I was often skeptical of others and overly guarded. It caused me to endlessly strive to be one step ahead of every bad thing that might happen so I could control it or stop it from happening. I lived in continual angst.

Jesus’ peace- Shalom- means order and wholeness. Instead my thoughts felt fractured jumping from scenario to scenario in an attempt to keep things tampered down tightly. I tried to be in control. My life was out of order. Jesus needed to be in control- that was the proper order of things. When I grew to know Him more intimately, I learned I could trust Him more fully. And knowing fear is a continual temptation for me, I’ve developed habits in my life to keep my mind properly focused on Christ’s power and authority over every situation in my life. 

 I’ve made it my life’s work to simplify the Bible: I’m here to show you how to apply Scripture to YOUR life! Let’s move from nice thoughts and simple platitudes to getting real and practical. Jesus died to give us new LIFE!

Yep, you heard right — the Bible can give you insight into your unique struggles and circumstances. I have given hundreds of people the guidance they need to live more fully in the Word of God. Think you could use a little extra support?

🙌 Together, we’ve got this 🙌

Three tips to move from feeling fearful to resting in the peace of Jesus:

Meditate on Scripture & Pray Scripture Filled Prayers

(Heads up! I’ve crafted a personal prayer specifically for you and it’s headed to your inbox soon!)

Keeping Scripture before you helps balance out your emotions. Truth is your anchor when a storm of emotions starts to swirl around you. Download these two free lockscreens to keep your desire for wisdom always before you:

John 16:33
Psalm 46:1-2

Utilize a prayer journal.

Prayer can reduce anxiety and enhance mental clarity. Setting aside the same time every day, before you study, can calm your nervous system, rewire neural pathways and set you up to get the most out of the wisdom found in Scripture. Writing out your feelings in response to your circumstances and what you found in Scripture will help sort out your emotions and apply truth to them.

Frequently your care for those you love often drives you to strive so you can protect them and prevent bad things from happening. Pausing daily to reflect on God’s great love for you and for them can help you relax and remember that He sees and knows everything you are facing. Start your day with these journal prompts to reorder your thoughts toward the peace Jesus longs to give you.

LORD, today I feel worried about: 

I confess that this worry denies the greatness of your character and the goodness of your love. Specifically, I confess that:

Jesus, today I choose to focus my mind on these promises in your Word and what I know to be true of You:

Engage in these 3 Conversations with A Trusted Friend / Mentor / Pastor

Conversation One

Examine where your fear originates. Ask them to pray with you to invite the Holy Spirit to reveal the glue that caused this label to fasten itself over your heart and mind. Most likely fear began to take root in your life through one of four ways: 

  • Something that happened to you that created great fear in the moment
  • You come from a home where fear, worry and anxiety drove emotions and decisions
  • You had people place demeaning labels upon you and you fear that might be true (i.e. you are lazy, irresponsible, unsuccessful, a nuisance)
  • You previously chose a sinful lifestyle and you fear falling back into old ways or to see it passed down to your children/grandchildren

Conversation Two

Confess the fear as it actually is: a sin against God. Fear elevates a thought or emotion over and above God’s protection, provision and power to redeem you. Our fear grieves God and goes against His commands. Over 350 times in Scripture God commands His people to not fear or be afraid. We must confess it and ask for His power to become released from it. 

Conversation Three

Actively move away from fear by intentionally pursuing spiritual disciplines to renew your mind from lies to truth.

(More on that below!)

Maybe the most Unexplainable thing in our lives wouldn't be changed circumstances, but a Change in us.

"Peter went from a man hiding in the shadows to a bold world changer in just 50 days. In the first twelve chapters of Acts we meet Peter face to face and encounter the source of his power. We become challenged to grab hold of that power ourselves, believing that God wants to do something in and through us that is unexplainable apart from him. Let’s give God 50 days and see what He might do!"
