An Honest Conversation About Resistance, Burnout, and Following God’s Commands

71: An Honest Conversation About Resistance, Burnout, and Following God’s Commands

In this episode of Couch Time, I’m getting vulnerable and sharing my heart with you. 

I’ve been showing up for my one-on-one clients in a massive way, and I’ve loved every minute of it. But at the same time, I’ve also been avoiding and resisting something that God’s asked me to do. 

Today, I’m sharing a behind-the-scenes look at that story with you. 

The truth is I have been consumed by burnout, exhaustion, the needs of my children, my health, and my resistance to what God is asking me to do. This has led me to be consumed by hiding. 

But I’m done hiding and resisting God’s plan for me. No amount of those “I’m fine” responses is going to mask this anymore. I am unmasked. I’m raw and open to being found out and seen.

I finally understand what God is asking of me, and though I’m not revealing what it is just yet, one thing is clear. It’s not about me or my story. It’s about being that light for you. 

In This Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • The struggles I have been facing in my personal and business life
  • The definition of consumed and how it’s been impacting my life
  • How I uncovered the perfect plan that God has for me
  • Why I am struggling so much with resistance
  • What this calling from God is really about 
  • The Bible verse that helped me through times when I want to hide
