Your Hope-Filled Perspective with Dr. Michelle Bengtson podcast

Aug 25, 2022

Episode Summary: 

Have your circumstances ever stolen your joy? Have you ever wanted to maintain a happy heart despite chaotic circumstances? Author and speaker, Tricia Goyer has a message for all the overworked, underappreciated moms: now is the time to tend your soul. We talk about how to have a happy heart in the midst of chaos. 

The key is to stay centered on God’s love during chaotic circumstances.

Quotables from the episode:

  • “When we make small, positive changes to cultivate a heart that's happy in the Lord everything changes.”
  • Happiness can also be translated blessed. It’s not happy – I’m going to Cancun, or happy – I lost 10 lbs. It is that deep blessed settledness that comes from walking in God’s ways.
  • Happiness comes from walking out what the Lord is asking us to do.
  • Getting our heart happy is walking out the happiness that only God can provide.
  • By resting in the joyous comfort and love of God, true transformation can be found.
