Each of us was placed on this earth for a certain number of days. Time is precious, and you don’t want to waste it. You desire a life that has meaning and purpose, but you find yourself caught in a current of non-stop rushing. When this becomes your existence, day after day, you find you’ve lived a series of months, even years, unintentionally. In the middle of all of this is the suffocating presence of anxiety. You want a life that matters, but how do you do that in the middle of…life?
How do you use the struggle of anxiety as a path to a life of meaning? Join Nichole Suvar, author of Numbering our Days, as she encourages you to move out of maintenance mode, away from the spiral of anxiety, and into a life lived with intention. Anxiety doesn’t have to define you. It can be what brings you back to Jesus, living a life that brings Him glory and points others to Him.
This episode will help you take action to combat anxiety and start living intentionally, one moment at a time. Because small moments, day by day, add up to an intentional life.
