Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Jun 9, 2022

Episode Summary:

I talk with Jami Amerine about learning to live from a place of grace. Jami shares how living from grace begins with your mindset and what you focus on. Because what you focus on grows, when you focus on love, gratitude, peace, joy and faith, those will grow and be magnified. 

Quotables from the episode:

  • Grace is everything and once you are free, you are free indeed.
  • There’s no “but” in a good “I love you.” God never says “I love you, but…”
  • Fear is our most dangerous operating system.
  • Hope is a confident expectation.
  • Ask God to open your eyes to a greater appreciation of His grace.
  • Stop talking AT Jesus and listen TO Him.
  • I truly know I am cared for, I cannot get in trouble with God and I can never be separated from Him. 

Scripture References:

  • Colossians 1:27 "To them God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."
  • Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of what is hoped for the evidence of that yet seen."
  • Romans 8:39 "Neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
