Questions/Issues Discussed:

According to the definition used by the American Bible Society, what is a “Bible User”?

Do many non-Bible users admit that the Bible is valuable and the message found in Scripture has transformed their lives? David references grim statistics from a study the FRC did last year on this subject. You can read the article here.

LOSING CONTROL AND LIKING IT
Discussed by Tim Sanford
with Focus on the Family www.Family.org

When bad things happen, what do you do?

Tim Sanford is a licensed professional counselor and the Clinical Director of Counseling Services for Focus on the Family. Today, Tim discusses how to manage uncertainty and fear, as well as the freedom one can feel by stopping the search for control – seeking Christ instead.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are there moments in everyone's life when life seems out of control? Tim believes that many people are “control freaks”, saying: “The reality is: You can only control yourself… and that’s a really small part of the universe.”

Is there any comfort in realizing that “bad things” do happen to “good people”?

How can we begin to manage uncertainty and fear? Tim suggests to focus on what you can do, not what you can’t do.

How do we stop grabbing for the steering wheel and just allow God to take the driver’s seat? Tim says: “Accepting the way things are and accepting that I don’t have control is a physical act of humility to God. He is the one in control – not me. He will decide how things come out – not me… He will do it His way, which is always the best way.”

Do we too often ignore God’s guiding voice, wanting to be in control of the situation?

How can “Losing Control and Liking It” help readers during perplexing times in their lives?
