It’s Not Where You’ve Been, But Where You’re Going: Tana Amen & The Women from Jobs Partnership
Have you ever wished you’d made a different choice? Or imagined how different your life might have been if you’d taken a different path? No matter how bleak things might have been at one point, God can take your story and use it for good, and He can point you on the right path to healing. Nurse and author Tana Amen experienced more pain and chaos in her life than one person should ever have to face. She shoved all of the hurt deep down inside, building a façade to convince others she was okay, when she actually was about to crack. When she met her future husband, Dr. Daniel Amen, Tana learned some ways to heal herself and was loved so well by Daniel (and by God) that she began to find the restoration she so desperately needed. It was in that time that she realized God cares way more about where you’re going than where you’ve been. Cheryl Parks, Mila Brown, and Corday Rice join us from the Jobs Partnership organization in Peoria, Illinois, which seeks to help people transition from a life of incarceration back into society as healthy, healed individuals. These women share how they’ve seen the power of God operating in their lives, and how He rescued them from situations where they couldn’t escape of their own power. Now, they’re passionate about sharing about their pasts in hopes that they can change the lives of others the way they’ve been changed by God.

It meant I wasn't really in control. It wasn't me just relying on God. It was like me giving up control and being a victim.” - Tana Amen “What I learned is that when I put myself out there and helped when I didn't want to, I just had no idea how much the help was for them, but the healing was for me.” - Tana Amen “I think it's important to draw boundaries, but also understand when God's calling you to do something.” - Tana Amen “God cares less about where you've been than where you're going. And I'm so grateful for that grace and that mercy.” - Tana Amen “I feel like my life is so much better today not in spite of my struggles, but because of them.” - Tana Amen “Meditation is when I listen to God and I listen for what He's saying to me. And prayer is when I'm talking to God and I tell Him my joy, my frustration, everything that there is, and I get it out of my head and it just really stills my soul and it's so helpful.” - Tana Amen “If my story can help anybody, one person, I've done what I needed to do.” - Mila Brown “The whole time that I was incarcerated, in my mind, I'm like, God, where am I going to go? I know no one. I have nobody. I have no family, no friends. No one has reached out to me for the four and a half years that I have been incarcerated. What am I going to do?” - Corday Rice “People say that change is scary, but change is good.” - Corday Rice “It was good to have women just look at me and just say that, “I love you.” And they didn't even know me. So I knew right then and there that that could only be the love of God that's working through them in the Jobs Partnership program.” - Corday Rice “I feel like God knew that I didn't have the strength to get out of the situation that I was in, so He forced my hand.” - Mila Brown ________________________ Enjoy watching these additional videos from Jesus Calling YouTube channel: Audio Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PrbuwH Video Playlist: https://bit.ly/2PsmEkJ What’s Good?

Matthew McConaughey – an Interview on His New Book, “Greenlights” #261
“Somewhere down the line in life, in the rearview mirror, all yellows and reds I believe do eventually turn green - or at least reveal a greenlight asset in our life.” – Matthew McConaughey Often, the setbacks that stop us or slow us down in life actually help us to ultimately succeed. In this episode, Brian interviews actor Matthew McConaughey about his memoir, “Greenlights.” Matthew explains how, through all of the successes, failures, joys and sorrows he has experienced, he has found happiness and meaning in his life. He also describes how, by learning to effectively deal with life’s challenges, you can always keep moving forward and enjoy a state of success he calls “catching greenlights.” READ FULL EPISODE TRANSCRIPT YOU WILL LEARN: * How “The Greatest Salesman in the World” powerfully impacted him. * How his father’s death refocused his priorities. * Why he “unbranded” himself to move away from rom-coms to more dramatic roles. MENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE: “Greenlights,” by Matthew McConaughey Greenlights “The Greatest Salesman in the World,” by Og Mandino “Emerson's Essays,” by Ralph Waldo Emerson “Self-Reliance,” by Ralph Waldo Emerson “Raising Arizona,” movie INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE: “When faced with the inevitable, get relative.” – Matthew McConaughey “Be less impressed with things; be more involved.” – Matthew McConaughey “We all know that, to succeed, we need to do good, hard work. But is it the right kind of hard work?” – Matthew McConaughey “When you go and you endure something and you're kind of taking a penance, with each day you kind of build a little bit more honor and strength.” – Matthew McConaughey “I've never had any trouble turning the page in the book of my life.” – Coach Darrell Royal “We are the author of our own book.” – Matthew McConaughey “The way to find the greenlights is by persistence, or pivot or … sometimes knowing when to wave the white flag.” – Matthew McConaughey

Episode 39: United We Stand for Life with special guest Jeanne Mancini.
*UPDATE:* March For Life organizers have decided to make the 2021 March a virtual event. The decision was announced on the afternoon of January 15, after this episode of Fearless was recorded and posted. Make plans to join from the VIRTUAL March for Life from your home, your office, or wherever you are on January 29, 2021. The pro-life issue isn’t reserved for certain people — it is a fight that concerns us all and one we can all take part in. My heart was convicted of this last year after attending the March for Life for the first time. It’s a day which changed my life.  It’s easy to be in the fight when the current administration is also fighting for life, but there are people and organizations that have been on the front lines even when it’s been hard. One of those people is Jeanne Mancini, the president of March for Life and a fierce pro-life advocate.  In this episode of Fearless I had the privilege of speaking with Jeanne about the organization March for Life, and how it’s actively fighting for the rights of the unborn. I hope you are encouraged to join the fight by attending the virtual March for Life event on January 29, 2021.  marchforlife.com *Scripture Referenced:* 1 Corinthians 12:12-27 *Going Farther:* Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Prayer Line – 888-388-2683, or online: https://lp.billygraham.org/coronavirus-call-line/ Jeanne’s Article in The National Review--https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/12/becerra-would-be-a-radical-pro-abortion-warrior-at-hhs/?itm_source=parsely-api *Websites:* March For Life website -- https://marchforlife.org/ Fearless Website – https://cissiegrahamlynch.com/  Billy Graham Evangelistic Association -- https://billygraham.org/ Billy Graham Radio – www.billygrahamradio.org Samaritan’s Purse – https://samaritanspurse.org/                                                                                                                *Connect with me on **Facebook**, **Instagram**, and **Twitter**:* https://www.facebook.com/CissieGrahamLynch https://www.instagram.com/cissiegrahamlynch/ https://twitter.com/CissieGLynch
