advance emotional healing Apr 04, 2017

I'm coming to grips with something, because I see it in myself. Since I'm a pretty normal (read: average) guy, my guess is that it's common to many people. Maybe even you. Here it is: many of us struggle with "worth" issues.

In a sense, we REALLY need a t-shirt, bumper sticker, or tattoo...

Sozo- Podcast #4

Salvation isn’t just Jesus’ name (the name Jesus / Yeshua literally means “He saves”), it’s what He does. Furthermore, Jesus not only saves us FROM certain things, He also saves us TO an amazing life. 

The word in the New Testament used for “save”...

You're the author of the story- even when others try to be

 

2016 was a difficult year for us. It's one of those years you don't want to repeat. Ever

After moving through it- and after experiencing several people toss out "life rafts" to us along the way (not even knowing they were doing it- just blessing us by being them, and gifting us in...

The Happy God- Podcast #3

Many times, we envision God as being anxious, stressed, or angry… 

Or we see Him as Holy. As a Judge. As Righteous. 

The Bible tells us that God is also joy, though. In fact, one third of the Kingdom of God is joy (Romans 14:17). And, we learn that the One who sits in Heaven...

Everyone swims underwater (the myth of overnight success + total ease)

Every person that gets anywhere learns to swim underwater. In fact, they learn to hold their breath for a very long time. And they often do so in isolation, wondering if they surface will come.

Here's what I mean.

A few years ago someone told me about icbergs. No doubt you've heard this before....

The Place of Confession- Podcast #2

 

I grew up in a constant state of anxiety, believing that if I didn’t keep up with my sins and then confess them that God wouldn’t be able to hear my prayers- that I would be distanced from Him. 

The truth is that grace isn’t restrained and your Heavenly...

Miracles require wellness / wellness leads to miracles

health + healing miracles Mar 14, 2017

Some people are hoping for a miracle. That's their health plan. And, let's be honest, sometimes that's exactly what's needed- a miracle. 

However, even if a miracle comes, you'll need to manage it, to steward it... in the same way lottery winners have to manage their money.

Ask the tough...

Created for Glory- Podcast #1 (and the podcast is back!)

 I bet you can fill in the blank of this Bible verse: “All have ________ and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).

Problem is… well… we tend to focus only on the first part of the verse- the “falling short” part. When we do, we miss the second...

Healing in Heaven? Absolutely!

health + healing Mar 07, 2017

 

A quick read through the Bible reveals something that sounds somewhat odd: Healing actually happens in Heaven.

Now, I know what you might be thinking. When we get there, there's no need for healing. Everything has changed, right?

* No more sickness

* No more disease

Long distance miracles

One of my favorite pictures of my wife is one she never knew I took. Until after the fact, of course.

We were at a vendor booth last year, selling some of our books and training materials. We’ve chosen not to separate our faith from our business- or our business from our faith. I...
