Amanda and I chatted about the need we all have for approval and acceptance and to belong. That need is met through a relationship with the Father in Christ, through His sacrifice and His resurrection power.
Like you, Amanda Cave has a hunger for exploring Biblical truths while applying them in the natural aspects of everyday life.
She is a proud wife and mother of six. She is privileged to homeschool all forms of curriculum but nothing excites her more than teaching the Word of God.
She speaks multiple times a month at Las Colinas Women’s Prison and is the founder of Furthermore Ministries which exists to help women discover Jesus further and enjoy Him more. Furthermore hosts an annual women’s conference that radically inspires women in their God-given identity and calling.
Amanda is a passionate speaker and is currently writing her second Bible study. She is committed to helping women become and remain rooted in the freedom, which Christ so lovingly died and rose to give them.
We explored how the need for approval comes from our desire to belong and be accepted. If we don’t learn to look to God for His approval through Christ’s sacrifice and rest in His acceptance by faith through grace we will always feel like we don’t measure up. We will chase after the every increasing standards other people make a condition for their approval and acceptance. This is not God’s plan! He is waiting, arms wide-open for us to cease our labors and rest in the fact that we belong to Him.
Amanda’s favorite verse:
“Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the Lord.” Jeremiah 9:23-24
