Hi there. I'm Jill Allen and this is Find Your Fierce, the show designed for women to discover your fears, unlock an unstoppable mindset, build unbreakable courage, and completely transform how you show up every single day.

(00:35): Hey there gang, welcome to Find Your Fear. So glad that you are here with me as we dive into another week. As always, I am super excited about these next few minutes of our day because this just may be the fire that you are needing to break through. I always say it's a little straight talk, followed up with love that will hopefully inspire you to apply it and take action when it comes to being that girl. But before we go any further, I have to ask you, are you needing any speaker for an upcoming event or conference? If so, I am your person. I would love to bring the find your Fierce message to your next function to book your event. Message me at jill jill allen coaching.com. And I love that you're here listening in and spending time with us. So honored that I get to be a part of your day, you're just also amazing and I thank you for your love and support as always.

(01:20): I appreciate your feedback, your reviews, and I love that you share this podcast and a set free message with your friends and family. So if you could keep on doing that, that would be incredible because you are helping this movement as it helps reach more women and it impacts more lives, and that is certainly what life is all about. So thank you again. So let's dive in. Okay, so let me start off with asking you a question. Okay, What could you do today that would really make the Lord pleased? What could you do that would fire God up and have him jumping for joy, truly ecstatic over the moon, like just so excited? And I know that you may be thinking, how could the little you and ordinary you do anything that would impress the biggest of big? Can he even be wowed that much?

(02:08): Can he even be shocked? I've always imagined living a day of life in such a way that makes God say, Man, I'm so glad that I gave that girl another shot, another day, another chance. So glad that I didn't give up on her. How can we live that way today? And in Proverbs 21 verse three, it says, The Lord is more pleased when we do what is right and just than when we offer him sacrifices. God isn't looking for some over the top religious ceremony from us. He's just hoping we will live our life right today. This is what pleases him most, more than anything that you and I could ever give more than any offering or sacrifice. God is so pleased when we take the day he has created for us and we actually live it, right? So here you are awake enough to find that God once again faithfully made the sunrise for you.

(03:00): Go ahead. I mean, peek out your window. Look outside. I mean the world is still spinning. Your heart is still beating. You're alive, miraculously alive. We have this gift of a new day of life. And what would please God the absolute most is for us to live it, right? But exactly how do we know how to live it right today? How do we know for sure we're doing the right thing in the right way? And I'm gonna be honest with you guys, The answer is simple pause to ask a single question of ourselves. Because remember this, our mind answers every question it is ever asked. And if you ask, why do bad things always happen to me? You're probably gonna provide yourself with this some crazy answer. Why? Because it was a crazy question. Ask better questions and we will get better answers guys, if we sit down with a menu and ask ourself what would be the most delicious, sinful thing we could ever possibly put in our mouth?

(03:51): We're gonna get the answer, but that answer may not serve us well. Or if we ask ourself who is the most hateful, ridiculous person in our office, we're gonna get that answer. So we can't be surprised if somehow we end up in this small space with that exact person after asking. God works in funny ways like that. If we ask ourself how is it possible that our kids can make a mess in after, in a matter of five minutes after we have worked so hard to clean everything up, Five minutes we'll pass. And you're gonna see yourself that they are like are the master mess makers and you will be left with nothing but to answer to your crazy question and frustration. So let's flip the script. Let's flip it today. Here's the better question to ask of yourself. How would the best version of myself handle this with every interaction, every decision, every conflict, and every opportunity.

(04:45): How would the best version of you handle this? And the best version of you is this authentic you created by God. The one that says in Second Timothy empathy, one verse seven is not fearful, but has a sphere of power, a sphere of love, and a sphere of self-control. How does that girl handle this today? By asking this question, you truly simplified the complicated issue of how do you please God by doing what is right. And it's so clear, it's so simple and so powerful. Why do we miss this? Right? How would the best version of you handle this? Great questions. Get great answers. God has perfectly equipped us with everything we need to live today. Well, we are lacking nothing. He has empowered us to show up as the best version of who he created us to be and do what is right. The question is, will we, will our life get the best of us today?

(05:43): Or will we show up with the some lesser than watered down, cheap imitation version of the powerhouse? We really are. I've had so many encounters with women and conversations all who have so much to offer this world, but they spend their time sitting in the back. Maybe they're hiding, they're holding back. But when we dig in a bit, when we dig in a little bit deeper, it's discovered that they carry around hurt, caused by careless words, hurt emotions, feelings, rejection, failure of some kind. And a lot of times it took place years ago. So they've been carrying it around for decades. Man, I mean it. Imagine the heaviness from all of that. The damage that we can create when we are hurting, Hurt people, hurt people, so many are hurting. And as a result of someone, a friend, a loved one, a parent, a spouse, a child, it could be intentional or it could be unintentional, it still hurts.

(06:42): And although they may not be unleashing hurt to others, they target their own life. They hurt themselves by keeping quiet, hiding, holding back. They place themselves in the back when they dream of being in the crowd having fun, they assume they won't fit in when actually they fit in so perfectly and they would potentially once again walk away from a divine encounter aligned by God to prove their value and worth and miss all they have to offer. But when we don't walk away and we actually dive in and commit to the hard stuff and lay all that junk, all the hurt, all the betrayal, all the wounds out on the table, things begin to shift. Things begin to change within. We begin to see how we are cheated because we don't get to see who we really are. We begin seeing what the best version of ourself might really look like.

(07:30): And that girl doesn't belong in the back. Over the years, I have witnessed women conquering 30 mile missions on our retreats. They climb mountains with over 5,000 feet of elevation changes in just a matter of a few miles. They hike 12 miles in the pouring down rain. They've begun to write books that they've always wanted to write. They've started blogs, they've started, they're taking on their dream careers. They lose the 50 pounds they have run marathons in their sixties. I mean, I could keep going and going and going of all the conquered endeavors. And on those days, and in those moments, I believe they did exactly what the best version of themselves would do. Not the lesser than not the water down, not the imitation version. The real girl God created her to be. She's the one that started showing up what your life needs is the best version of you to start showing up.

(08:25): And let me tell you, that girl carries herself differently. She shows up different, she eats different, she talks different. She works different. She loves different. She is intentional. She's fully present. She is all in. She's available. I mean, we can list out all the things. We can continue. I mean, she is unstoppable, She's fierce, she's full of fire, she's alive, vibrant, faithful, fun. She's confident, she's loving, she's bold, she's courageous, joyful, She's grateful, optimistic, adventurous. She's strong, peaceful, balanced, She's complete. You are all those things. In Colossians two verse 10, it says, You have been made complete in Jesus. Complete meaning, lacking nothing. Do you have any idea of the power that you carry around inside of you? It's the same power that made the sun to rise today, now lives inside of you. And that power says it's time for you to rise too.

(09:27): It's time for you to show up as the best version of yourself and do what is right, make the right choices, turn the right way, do the right thing with the right attitude. And when you stumble, which we all do, I want you to come right back with that same simple and powerful question. How would the best version of myself handle this? Your answer is your next choice and your next step. And remember, while you are doing the right thing, you are pleasing God. This is the way you please God the most today. Show up as the girl he created you to be and nothing less. How would the best version of you handle this? The girl full of fire. Would you hold your tongue and zip your lip? Would you love anyway? Would you put your phone down and be fully present? Maybe give your all even when no one will notice.

(10:15): What about getting up and do what you can do where you are with what you have? Would you apologize? Would you just drop it, let it go? Would you walk away? Would you choose a salad? Take the stairs. Would you offer help? Would you say yes to God? Would you go first and would you love? Ask yourself that powerful question today. Receive your powerful answer, then make the powerful choice to be that girl. God will be pleased man. I'm fired up and if you're wanting even more fire in your day, there is so much for you to do.
