Fight the right battle. 

You feel like you’re spinning your wheels, laboring till you’re exhausted but seeing little permanent fruit. You’re depressed that certain relationships are a perpetual painful morass. You’re frustrated that the numerous “prescriptions” of faith that you’ve tried are not working. I get it. We expend a lot of energy fighting the wrong battles, and such futility is an underlying cause of anxiety.

This episode explores how to fight the right battle: how to work with the Holy Spirit for lasting peace rather than against Him. Our focus is on temporary relief, while His is on our permanent rest in Him. So we must determine to lean into the difficulties He allows and “suffer creatively,” as St. John of the Cross says. 

Overview:

Minutes 00:12:00 – Biblical definition of sin as destruction and “stain”; sin we commit and sin committed against us, and the anxiety effect

Minutes 12:01-24:00 –  Predominant fault and particular vices; identifying patterns in relationships and circumstances  

Minutes 24:01-36:00 – Historical emotions and woundedness as the root of predominant fault

Minutes 36:01-48:00 – The real battle and the real authority
