Honor Your Father and Mother (2 OF 2)

September 7, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

Learning to honor my father and mother is crucial to my personal development. My heavenly Father chose my parents, and I must be able to trust that He has done well by me in all things. Honoring my parents does not mean denying their imperfections. There are no perfect parents; there are no perfect children. I learn to honor my parents in spite of imperfections—theirs and mine. Jesus teaches me how.

The Ministry of Reconciliation (2 OF 2)

August 24, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

God reconciles people who have been separated relationally. This is just the kind of person God is. As we mature toward Christlikeness, we also become agents of reconciliation. This is just the kind of persons we are becoming. But what does the process of reconciliation look like? Are there specific steps?

Learning How to Forgive (2 OF 2)

August 16, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

Forgiving my enemy can be hard, especially if I misunderstand what forgiveness is. Forgiveness never denies or minimizes the wrong. It is a way of responding to the wrong. It acknowledges God as Judge and leads to my healing. It changes the effects of the past on the present. Jesus teaches me how. He is just the kind of person who forgives.

Sexuality (2 OF 2)

August 10, 2017

PART 2 OF 2

God created us male or female. He intended a man and woman to forge a “one-of-a-kind” intimacy of mutual and permanent commitment, caring, kindness, respect. God designed us with ability to express this unique intimacy physically. Sexual intimacy, in harmony with God's intention for me, is beautiful and fulfilling. Sexual acts that violate God's intention deeply violate and wound. What I do with my body affects my soul.

Love Your Neighbor: Personal Relationships (3 OF 3)

July 20, 2017

PART 3 OF 3

My need to be loved is so great that, initially, my capacity to love others is quite limited. Where did this neediness come from? I turned away from the all-competent Lover. God never stopped loving me; I stopped loving him. My need to be loved can only be met as I learn to live increasingly in God's Presence. Being with him, I experience his love. His love heals me. It begins to form a reservoir of love within me that I can pass on to my neighbor.

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.

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.

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.

​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.

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

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.

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.
