Three Questions That Will Empower Your Peace

How To Stop the Chaos and Embrace the Life You’ve Always Dreamed


Life just keeps coming at us. With all of the demands and distractions, it can be tough to focus, to find our way, to discover the things that matter most.


Most of us tend to live reacting to whatever crisis is thrown at us. We can’t even envision a life where we get to experience the fullness and abundance we’ve always dreamed. We’ve learned to settle.


There are three questions that I believe hold the keys to empowering your peace.


1. Are you living the life you’ve always dreamed?


What are your hopes and dreams? What does your ideal life look like? Have you buried your dreams in a faraway place because they seem too unrealistic or just too painful to resurrect?


God gave each of us dreams. He wants to give us a hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) We will never get anywhere if we are not heading somewhere. I’m not channeling my inner Anthony Robbins, but what I am asking is where are the areas that you’ve given up, settled in, stopped living?

Perhaps some of those areas or dreams are places God wants to bring healing, passion, and purpose to your life. Perhaps He wants to give you more of your dreams than you ever imagined. We will never live our dreams if we have stopped dreaming them.

2.  What steps are you taking to build the life you want?


Many of us started out young and idealistic, ready to change the world. But as life wielded its gravitational pull on our hopes and dreams, we gave up and settled in.


Our dreams for our life don’t have to be big. You may have always dreamed of learning how to garden or paint. You may have the dream of becoming a writer, or a Bible Study leader. You may have always wanted to return to school, or build a business. What steps are you taking to achieve your dreams and create the life you want?


Our dreams are rarely accomplished in one step or one moment. Don’t give up on your dreams. Begin to take small steps toward them. It is all of the small accumulated steps that ultimately lead to big changes in our hearts, our lives, and our relationships.


3.  What prevents you from taking steps forward toward your dreams?


There will always be obstacles to our dreams. Insecurities, past hurts, challenges to our time and resources can interrupt or stall even the best laid plans. Yet it is more about what we do with the obstacles than whether or not we will experience obstacles in our lives that will ultimately determine the outcome.


God wants us to learn how to face the obstacles in our paths, to lean into them in order to grow our faith in Him, develop our own inner resources, and along the way discover the path to our greatest hopes and dreams.


When we’re empty, overwhelmed, and distracted, we tend to drift along, reacting to every situation life throws at us.  Some of us try to control every detail of life, but both ways of dealing will leave us exhausted and stuck.


My new book, Peace For A Lifetime, presents a powerful and proven alternative that will empower you to remove the obstacles, heal the wounds, and develop the tools to live your dreams.

  1. Lisa, you’ve done such beautiful job with your book. So much needed truth.

  2. Thank you Lisa! I love your book and am still working through it. However, at a very crucial time (when my dad was in the hospital the first time) I had your book with me and reading about peace and emotional abundance was such a gift. Your book is making a difference and is a gift for those who read it. Blessings as we walk to the cross this week.

      So blessed to have you launch this book with me, Bethany! How sweet to meet a fellow journey-er!! Blessings, friend.

  5. “We have learned to settle.” Funny how a short statement can pull you up short and get your attention. Congrats on your book launch! I’m looking forward to reading your book, having read some great reviews. Praying for all who need to read it will get a copy. Blessings from Thought Provoking Thursdays.

  6. Lisa,
    This is such a great post and description of your book, as well. Your book is such a powerful resource. It is one I will be recommending to many others!

  7. Lisa,

    I think that having these questions before us, giving ourselves the freedom to ask them of ourselves, it may be that first step in realizing where we are in this journey. I love how you lead us in grace and wisdom.

    Thanks for reminding me of these important reminders and for linking up at #GraceMoments last week.
