Today on theOppermom I discuss the idea of S.C.U.P.L.T. with my father, Frank Zitzman. In case you haven’t heard the previous interview I did with him, talking about the loss of my brother Troy, I would encourage you to do so first to give context to this powerful acrostic.
In that interview, he briefly touched on the S.C.U.L.P.T. idea and went home afterward burdened that he didn’t get to expound on the verses that lead him to remember this easy yet powerful acrostic. He asked me if it would be possible for him to return and share more on this subject with my listeners, to which I quickly agreed.
While I pray you never have to experience the loss of a child the way my parents did, this idea of S.C.U.L.P.T. is still for you. At the root, it is a way to combat the moments in this life where we lose sight of who is in charge and why circumstances are not on what we should base our joy and hope.
Moms I am sure you will find something in this episode that will apply to you in those moments when you feel like life just isn’t going the way you think it should. We all need to keep in mind what Scripture says in those moments, I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. (Psalm 16:8)
Join us as we hear the principles and scriptures to go along with the acrostic,
Submit to God’s Sovereignty (Job 1:22)
Confess your weakness (Psalm 61:2).
Understand God’s big picture (Rom 6:23).
Leave self on the shelf (Psalm 16:8-9).
Praise God for His provision (Psalm 57:7).
Testify to God’s amazing grace. (Matthew 7:27)
