Lifted Book Study | Week 5, Introduction

Hi Friends!

Welcome to the final week of the Courageous Heart Community Book Study featuring Lifted  by Lindsey Hale. What a journey this has been! If you’re anything like me, Lindsey’s book has challenged you and cheered you on to living a more intentional and authentic life.

Part of living more authentically is doing what you’re called to—what you were uniquely created to do. And that means you can’t do everything; there simply isn’t enough time! Figuring out which opportunities and invitations to decline is essential if you’re going to make space in your life for your true calling.

That’s where we kick things off in this week’s video intro. Lindsey talks about the filters we can use to determine if we are actually called to do something—or if we’re just capable of doing that thing. The truth is, just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should.

As we wrap up the Lifted book study this week, why not practice being more intentional about the invitations you accept? How do you feel about saying no to a few things?

We were each designed with purpose for a purpose. This week’s verse reminds us of that:

“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” —Ephesians 2:10

What are the “good things” that you need to make space for in your life?
