With All Your Strength - Body (2 of 2)

May 10, 2017

1 OF 2

God created the human body good. But living in a rebellious, darkened world I have learned behaviors that are unlike God and thus damaging to me and others. Many are stored in my body as subconscious habits, negatively affecting my heart, soul, mind and relationships without me realizing it. I must now learn to access God's provision of grace to unlearn (put to death) destructive habits and replace them with behaviors I learn from Jesus.

With All Your Mind — Emotions (2 of 2)

May 3, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

Our culture assumes that if an emotion exists it is valid. If I feel it, I have every right to express it. This may feel good at first, but it invariably leads to painful and disruptive life experiences. Jesus heals wounded emotions that block our maturing, replacing them with beautiful emotions God created us to have. This happens as we allow him to teach us how life works--as his disciples.

With All Your Mind — Thoughts (2 of 2)

April 26, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

The first step in reforming my mind is intention—an orientation of the heart or will​. I choose to intend to learn from Jesus how to access the new life he offers. My first step is to choose where I will place my thoughts. Jesus teaches me to live with my thoughts centered in ​God.

With All Your Soul (2 of 2)

April 19, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

A soul not centered in God becomes​ fragmented. It can’t find its way home. One’s inner ​being trends toward chaos and harmful ​behavior. A soul centered in God comes to rest. It has returned home. One's ​inner being, in spite of what is going on around, finds order and peace.

PART 2 OF 2
 
​The choices of my ​heart direct the re-making of my person. This is very different from "will-power." Allowing Jesus to teach me how life works, I learn to choose not to rely on will-power but on him. As he teaches me how to live in God's Presence, my inner life is transformed.

Five Second Prayers

March 31, 2017

How can we pray throughout the day while carrying out the tasks of life? We need ways—established practices—for repeatedly returning our thoughts to God.

Prayer (2 of 2)

March 24, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

What is prayer? It is interacting with God. I talk to him; I also listen for what he is saying to me. Prayer is two-way communication. It is interactively living in God's Presence.​

How to Spend a Day (or Hours, or Minutes) in Solitude

March 14, 2017

As I enter more deeply into rest, I become more aware of the condition of my soul. Practice expands my ability to go deeper into silence.

Solitude (2 of 2)

March 1, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

In solitude I withdraw, for a time, from social contact, physical movement, and sounds (except perhaps from the gentle sounds of nature). I offer my time and myself to God as a gift of love. Waiting in quietness and stillness, my soul comes to rest. It then reaches new clarity.

Spiritual Practices (2 of 2)

February 22, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

It is tragic when God is only a concept, a theological proposition, a part of my upbringing, and I do not experience living in his Presence. When practices for inviting God into my inner life are not being followed​, the dysfunctions that have negatively shaped me remain unaddressed.

Inner Healing (2 of 2)

February 16, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

At some point, living as Christ’s disciple, I am likely to become aware of wounded areas within that are hindering or blocking my maturing. Craziness began when I turned from God and went my own way. Sanity is gradually returning as I rely on Jesus to teach me how life works.

Faith (2 of 2)

February 8, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

 What is faith? Mental assent? Yes, but more than that. It is belief that leads to relying on what is believed. We choose to rely on God apart from what our five senses seem to be telling us. God is Spirit. His kingdom is Unseen Reality. To enter and live there we walk by faith, not by sight.

Practicing God’s Presence (2 of 2)

February 1, 2017

PART 2 of 2

 I have been created to be like God, and to live continually in his Presence. These two reinforce each other. The more time I spend in God’s Presence the more I become like him. The more I become like him the more I desire to be in his Presence. Why then does entering God’s Presence and staying there seem so hard, so unnatural?

The Kingdom of God (2 of 2)

January 26, 2017
PART 2 of 2
 
Jesus began his public ministry by announcing that the kingdom of God is at hand--accessible like never before. How to enter and live there is the theme integrating all his teaching. God's kingdom is unseen. This should not surprise us. God is unseen. He created the material world but he is not part of it. God is Spirit. Though God's kingdom is unseen, activity there produces tangible results. Jesus said to meet material needs, rely on the kingdom!
