Closet Confessions with Christina: The hilarious, not-so-funny truths about the Christian walk
What to do when you‘re WAITING on God…

What to do when you‘re WAITING on God…

December 5, 2021

No one likes to wait! I know I sure don't.  Doctor's waiting rooms, a drive-thru, my RX to be filled, my kid to unload the dishwasher after asking 2 times... the list goes on and on! But WAITING on God is entirely something different. It's something we shouldn't try to "make" happen but it can be HARD to wait on something He's promised or shown us He's going to do.  We are impatient by nature. Thankfully God knows that. But BOY the testimony that comes when God shows up and shows out! He's so faithful and even in the waiting, He's doing work in our life!

In this episode, I'm going to give you 3 things you could do while you wait!

My prayer, as always, is that this episode blesses and helps you in your daily walk with Christ.

What is the motive behind why ”Christians” do what they do?

What is the motive behind why ”Christians” do what they do?

November 28, 2021

I'm going to warn you, I got a little fired up in this episode.  Not because I'm angry... although this episode may MAKE some people angry... but because I get tired of seeing the character of Jesus portraited in a way that doesn't line up with scripture.  

I don't want to say much about the episode because I want you to listen for yourself but can we just get real and raw before God and ask Him to reveal ourselves to us? To show us what's REALLY inside and behind the things we do? WHY we do them and exactly WHO we are trying to glorify here?? It breaks my heart to see people hurting and thinking it's Jesus who wronged them because of people who identify as Christians saying or doing something that didn't line up with how Jesus walked His love walk? Did that make sense? Well, if not, just take a listen, and maybe it will all come together. :) 

My prayer, as always, is that this episode blesses and helps you in your daily walk with Christ.

Do you feel far from God? Ok, So what‘s getting in your way?

Do you feel far from God? Ok, So what‘s getting in your way?

November 14, 2021

Hi Friend! Let's be honest. We ALL go thru seasons where we don't "feel" close to God. I say "feel" because that's what it is. A feeling but not the truth. The truth is God NEVER leaves us. But honestly, my heart might know the truth but my feelings can kinda over powering that knowing. Did that make sense??

And although we KNOW God doesn't leave His children, I do believe there are things I allow to get in the way. Distractions, heart issues..... and even "good things" can make it feel like there's a wall between me and My Heavenly Father.

So let's talk about it in this episode.  What MIGHT be in the way AND what we can do about it!

My prayer, as always, is that this episode blesses and helps you in your daily walk with Christ.

Offended Much? How to STOP getting offended!

Offended Much? How to STOP getting offended!

October 31, 2021

I really can't stand when I feel offended... Which is funny because I USE to stay offended! Offended at people, offended at stores, offended at traffic. I just stayed offended. I mean, no big deal right? Everyone gets a little offended from time to time, right? Especially NOW. It seems the whole world STAYS offended. But it IS a big deal. It's a seed that can lead to deep roots of resentment & bitterness. And now I fight it relentlessly!

Offense is like a gift & you can REFUSE it. Crazy right? I never really thought of it like that, but it's true.  You have that right & that freedom. 

My prayer is that this episode will help you decide to REFUSE to take the bait of offense. You CAN do it! Jesus DIED to give you that power! 

All my love in Christ,

~Christina

Jealousy… the causes, feelings & what we can do about it.

Jealousy… the causes, feelings & what we can do about it.

October 24, 2021

Sometimes I'll ask a question on Facebook like.... Do you ever feel jealous of others success or lifestyle or career or ministry? Do you ever compare yourself with others? Do you ever feel insecure in certain areas? I always feel a little jealous when someone will comment... No, I never feel any of these ways. Now I'm not sure they're being completely honest but maybe they are. Maybe they NEVER deal with some of the emotions that I deal with. Whatever the truth is... Here's my truth... I do!! Praise God, He's brought me a long way but still I catch myself sometimes having thoughts like... Why not me, God? Why them? When will it be my turn? 

I think being jealous of someone is a human, fleshly trait. That's not trying to excuse it but it say WE ALL DEAL WITH IT at some point in our lives. Some more then others I'm sure, but even if it's one time... we STILL need to confront it. To bring it before God and exam our heart. We don't like to do that though. And a lot of times, we deny we even have a problem with jealousy, I know I have in the past.... I'm NOT jealous of them, don't be silly! But denying it doesn't make it go away. And if not addresses and dealt with, it can turn into anger, resentment, bitterness and hate. Jealousy and envy truly are a green-eyed monster! 

My prayer is that this episode helps you see if this is an area in your life that you need to let God into. My prayer is that you'll have a fresh revelation of how destructive jealousy can really be. My prayer is that you see how much God loves you and doesn't want this seed of envy to take root in your heart. He loves you and me so much. He knows that being jealous of anyone takes our eyes off Him and onto something that can completely hinder our growth and relationship with Him and the people in our life. 

All my love in Christ,

~Christina

Forgiving Yourself even when you ”knew better”

Forgiving Yourself even when you ”knew better”

October 17, 2021

Ok I know God forgives.  That was the purpose of Jesus coming to Earth to pay our debt. The debt we couldn't pay.  When I accept that payment as my own, then we can experience The Father's forgiveness. I get all that.... for other people.  When it comes to believing it for myself, it use to get blurry.  Because I knew better.... I knew Jesus but yet I still...... I accepted Jesus as my Savior but I messed up by....... WHY would God forgive that?? Maybe for others, but I KNEW BETTER.

So let's look at the Word & see others that maybe felt this way. Others that messed up even though they KNEW God, heard from God & even WALKED with Jesus!!!!! 

My prayer is this episode Blesses you & your walk with Christ.

The Mind Battle…. the war within.

The Mind Battle…. the war within.

October 10, 2021

We've all heard it said before... The mind is the battlefield! Well battlefield for who?? For the enemy of course! This is where he starts his attack and there's a HUGE target right on our minds! But why?? Well, if he can get you to doubt, fear, live in unforgiveness and all the yucky things that makes us feel far from God... then we walk around defeated or angry or depressed. And WHO want want to know a God that has defeated, angry, sad children? 

 

I pray this episode helps you see what we can do as Children of God to fight this battle! We are NEVER alone. God is with us and has given us weapons to battle. But if we don't know what they are, what good are they to us???

How do I forgive someone that doesn‘t deserve it??

Forgiveness... It's a commandment and boy what a hard one right? What if the person isn't sorry? What is they won't admit they're wrong? Is it ok then to withhold forgiveness? How exactly DO we forgive?? Well today we're going to dig in deep with it!

Are your emotions ruling you?

Are your emotions ruling you?

September 19, 2021

Hi Friend!!! Are you anything like me? Sometimes feeling led? I use to ask God... Why do we have emotions?? I know I'm not suppose to be ruled by them so why did you even give them to me?? But what a boring world that would be I think. We'd be like robots! I'm learning everyday to NOT be led by my feelings but by Holy Spirit.  I sure haven't mastered it & probably never will but Praise God I'm not where I was a few years ago! 

Let's talk it out together in todays podcast! I pray it helps & blesses you in your walk with Jesus!!
