The Narcissist’s Footnote | Have A Little Faith | MAKERS

different times in my life there were forces
that felt so powerful and totally in control– my addiction, my unhealthy
relationship, my horrible boss, my anxiety, and depression. At the time, these
things felt inescapable, like they would always rule me. So back in Jesus’ day,
there were these emperors who’ve ruled for a
certain number of years, and then they didn’t. It’s one reason I’m kind
of obsessed with how the story of Jesus is set up. When the Bible says,
in the 15th year of the reign of
Emperor Tiberius, when Pontius Pilate was
governor of Judea and Herod was ruler of Galilee– and during the high
priest of these dudes who were high priests,
the word of God didn’t come to a
damn one of them. But during their reign,
I imagined it also felt like they would always rule. Those whose power, at
the time they were alive, felt so absolute are
only a footnote to Jesus. Given that list of
emperors and rulers, I wonder if he was preaching
to an anxious people needing some hope in that context– real hope not platitudes
or cheerful sentiment. I say this because there are
things happening in our world right now that make me and a lot
of people I love very anxious. So maybe we can pray for the
conversion of our anxiety. Because when anxiety
is converted, you know what it becomes? It becomes hope. Which means if you have anxiety
now, you are almost hopeful– you’re like super close. You remember that list
of emperors and rulers at the beginning of the gospel,
the ones who were so feared and powerful at the time. The only reason these tiny,
so-called “powerful” men are even remembered at all 2000
years later is as a footnote. So here’s my prayer
for those of us who are so anxious that
we’re nearly hopeful. Let’s all name every single
thing and person that seems so powerful right now as to feel
inescapable– rulers, tyrants, societal forces, et cetera– name them and then say footnote. Pontius Pilate– footnote. Your depression– footnote. Student loans– footnote. The gun lobby– footnote. Power hungry narcissists
of every variety– footnote.

    This fake pastor, fake christian, false prophet, demon possessed feminist, is a perfect example of just how far people are from the Bible. Justiying sexual immorality, "homosexuality, fornication, adultery, etc.." death "abortion", and so much more….Whoever follows this evil whore wants to live in sin and you will therefore die in sin. Actually read the Bible and you will see that what was right is now wrong and what was wrong is now right. You have been warned by God. Keep living a lie and justifying sin and you will regret it for eternity.

    MAKERS? More like FAKERS. Nadia is a footnote heretic.

    Using vague, generalizations to make your message relatable, in order to condone sin, and spread a message that is repugnant to God's will. You go gurl…

    She literally reduced the gospel to a self-help message. Paul said, "But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed."

    Amen. Be not afraid.

    It's hysterical how many triggered " holier than thou" men stalk her videos. I wonder how many are incels?

    This is great, but the title is off on this and I think a few others!

    Serendipitously, I just dropped a post on Facebook that said "the only difference between "anxiety" and "anticipation" is the filter through which I push that same energy.

    Keep on keepin' on, Nadia.

    That was genius! I'm sitting here all alone because my husband died on our kitchen floor 2 months ago. No one in my family has come to my house to comfort me. No friends or family will take me in if I lose my house. I have no income except a small alimony from a narcissistic first husband. And I have creditors just lurking to take away the roof over my head in the food on my plate. So, lovely awesome child of God that you are, I plugged them all in to your equation. My siblings don't like me, footnote. The debtors want me homeless, footnote. My parents are going to die because they are old, footnote. I don't know where I will lay my head or what I will do for food, footnote. God already knows what happened to my siblings and me. God already accepted my parents into heaven when they died. God already found a place for me to lay my head and have something to eat. I only need to love God. Anxiety over what could happen or angst over how I am not loved is a waste of time and energy. God loves me. Jesus died for me. The Holy Spirit lives inside of me. God knows what happened. and I just happen to adore my Lord and my God so I will talk to him about it all and lay it at his feet and pick up his burden. I love you. Carly
