35: Jodie Niznik, Podcaster, Author

Kit McCarty invites fellow podcaster Jodie Niznik to talk about her show, So Much More: Creating Space for God.

SHOW HIGHLIGHTS

The #1 thing we can do is carve out space for God. You need to have space, practices in your life, to slow down and meditate in God’s Word, savor God’s Word, let it roll around in your mind in a slower way, so that we’re not just reading for information, but formation.

God’s Word has been transformative in my life, and it is important to me to share it with others; I see myself as a guide into God’s Word. The study of God’s Word is incredibly important.

I’m spending a lot of time these days, doing these podcasts, having conversations around how God is showing up in our lives in a real way right now, and what He’s teaching us.

When I finally started to get into Christian community in college, I started to study God’s Word, and I discovered God for who He really is, and not who I thought He is.

Truth brings freedom, and lies bring bondage.

When we are given gifts and opportunities, we are called to steward those things, not hide our gifts under a rock, but to actually cultivate them.

It’s being open to what the Spirit wants to teach us instead of imposing our own ideas on life, on God’s Word, or what we think He wants.

It is always a beautiful experience for me when the Spirit shows up.REFERENCES
