The Life You Long For with Christy Nockels
For most of us, it’s easy to focus on what’s urgent and important. But are we missing out? (The answer is yes.) What if God has something different for us? What if he longs for us to live from a heart of rest? In today’s podcast, my guest Christy Nockels shares how everything changes when we see ourselves as God’s Beloved. God has so much for us, and it starts from the inside out.
Christy shares about the season when she felt called to “come home,” even as she was finding success on the road. She also talks about how her unexpected hearing loss caused her to pause a listen in new ways. Christy says, “God used the brokenness of my physical ears to compel me to place the ears of my soul against His heart, desperate to truly hear from Him.” If you’re ready to discover how to really hear God in new ways, listen in.

About the Book:
A beautiful invitation to discover your place in God’s heart and let him set the pace for your life—from a wife and mother, singer-songwriter, and worship leader for Passion Conferences and IF:Gathering
“Christy Nockels is a gentle, strong voice shepherding us into a fuller life with Jesus at the very center. This book will restore your weary soul.”—Jennie Allen, New York Times bestselling author of Get Out of Your Head and founder and visionary of IF:Gathering
Christy Nockels knows firsthand how easily our desire to serve God—even when using the gifts He has given us—can overshadow our delight in simply being with Him. When God called her to lay down her ministry for a season, Christy was forced to confront how her sense of purpose and worth had become tangled up in her work. God then lovingly invited her to discover true rest in His presence as she learned to live as the Beloved.
In The Life You Long For, Christy shows us how to let go of hustle and achievement and instead find our identity in the quiet center of God’s love. As we delight in being with Him, we are filled to overflowing with contentment and love that propel us into an entirely new way of being, one in which every act of service and every encounter with the people around us arise from a heart at rest.
With irresistible warmth and grace, this book calls you to step fully into the life you didn’t even realize you’ve been seeking, as you find your highest calling not in a duty to uphold but in a beautiful identity to live out.
