AHTGB Chapter 10: The Filter of Redemption

tumblr_mi8efg4nUJ1qasx7ro1_500

Hello everyone! Here it begins! We will be reviewing relationships in more specific ways in the next few weeks. This class gave us somewhat of a “formula” for how we can begin to deal and process through the issues each relational room will contain. This process is meant to give us the ability to heal from the past, and forge more healthy relationships in the future. But processes of the heart can’t be simply taught in a 1, 2, 3, step manner. God knows where you are, what you have been through and the areas that need deeper healing. He isn’t comparing you or aligning you with an expectation of how it should look right now. Rather, right now all we want to do is invite Him in. He reveals, He will lead us through the journey that is specific for us. My prayer is that you will be steadfast in His love towards you. That you will learn to allow Him to access: and to understand the enormity of His surgical capability when you do so.

Chapter 9: The Doorway of Redemption

I can’t think of a better message to return to after being away for a few weeks. The utter magnitude and enormity of this subject left me to practically drop down in the middle of this class to worship King Jesus. I don’t think the reality of grace or the significance it plays in our healing process could ever be something we hear too much. My prayer is that your spiritual heart, not the intellect, will be moved and touched through this teaching. This is in every sense a doorway: we move on to the extent that we have received the blessed reality of redemption.

Special guest speaker Becky Sansilo shares her journey, and teachers on the concepts of Chapter 8! This is a beautiful example of God’s grace working itself out in a real and tangible way. Understanding the overall picture of your intimacy courts will prepare you to seek the remedy. Don’t be discouraged by what God reveals. Seeing is always the first step of healing.

I pray this will bless you as it did our class.

AHTGB Chapter 6: Learned Intimacy Styles

jesus-child

Welcome back! We entering into the intensity of intimacy styles. My experience has been that discussing this subject can be painful. I don’t say that to discourage, but rather to set reasonable expectations. However, I also feel that being able to diagnose this area establishes how God can heal us directly at our point of need. In working in a treatment/recovery arena for ten years, I can honestly say these issues are what hurt the heart the most. They are also the very places where God injects His solution and loving intents into our lives. By recognizing God’s purposes, and by seeing our own breakdowns, we can begin to place the overlay of grace on top. At this point, we don’t need to try to fix anything other than let the Holy Spirit give us a heart understanding of our needs.

I went back to this Jesus picture because I feel that He wants to rescue each one of us as a child. This is such a beautiful picture of the nurturing that can be done as we place our hope and trust in Him. Remember, in childhood we were vulnerable and couldn’t make choices for ourselves. That’s why understanding how the “child” in us was injured is so important. Eventually we will go into those places of hurt and actually let Jesus bring a remedy.

I know it’s deep. I know it might hurt. But it will be worth it.

The next two weeks I’ll be away as we are preparing for my husband’s surgery on Tuesday. Prayerfully, I will be able to maintain a recording for those who follow along. If there is a delay, rest assured it will be caught up with in the near future. Our live class and webinar will remain in tact. You’ll be hearing from two amazing ladies these next few weeks!

May God bless and keep you in His goodness and grace.

AHTGB: Prayer Workshop

d7005deac3b7218c90fb8d3fc298406b

Hi everyone! I apologize for the long delay! As this class details, our family (my husband) is going through a health crisis, and do ask and desire your prayers! Therefore, the class I taught on prayer is very personal as the principles it contains reflect the very processes we are undergoing. This I can tell you. God is faithful. He has given us a peace that surpasses all understanding. He has broken down barriers of confusion and given us the gift of clarity. He has revealed Himself as sovereign. Honestly, we are in awe at the reality that the spiritual processes of the heart are very similar to those of the physical body. Simpy put – GOD IS REAL! He reigns and rules – He is a powerful Comforter, a capable Healer. He’s the Great I Am. The One that was, and is, and is to come. We praise Him with every breath we take!

In your own life, you may also be facing some sort of crisis. It might be a relationship that is vulnerable. It might be the fear that life is passing you by without a sense of purpose. It might be a child that you love dearly destroying his or her life. Whatever it is, the reality of living in this broken world is that we have real needs and we need to meet and encounter a real God.  I know, in a very deep and personal way, that waiting can be painful, tormenting at times and can easily cause us to revert to survival. But can I encourage you not to retreat. Keep pressing forward. Keep pushing on.

My prayer is that this class along with the prayer itself will lift you, guide you and give you the courage to face whatever you are dealing with. I pray that you would see yourselves as seated in the heavenlies with Christ Jesus. I pray that you would be empowered to have no fear, because the perfect love of God casts it out. I pray that the reality of Warrior Jesus standing by your stand, taking on your cause, defending You, protecting You will make you brave.

In my distress I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me and rescued me. He is for me! How can I be afraid? What can mere man do to me? The Lord is on my side; he will help me. Let those who hate me beware. It is better to trust the Lord than to put confidence in men. It is better to take refuge in him than in the mightiest king! – Psalm 119:5-9  (TLB)

May God bless you Christmas, your New Year season and all the days in between.

AHTGB Chapter 5: Intimacy Courts

10153944_10153325058574552_8925370607017584559_n

As we prepare for the busy season, this class is intended to be a road map of the process we will be pursuing in the weeks to come. I I believe there is a vital need to understand the purpose of intimacy and how and where it can be misaligned. Our culture speaks so many things that contradict God’s purpose for intimacy. Not only that, intimacy is where we are the most wounded. This class focused on the nature of God’s call in our lives – how He wants to bring us into the freedom of relationship with Him, and how that will eventually translate into the realigning of all our relationships.

Most of all, as we pursue this season and all it contains, may He became the goal and the gift. May you understand that “knowing Him” is the miracle of all miracles. And may you not back down until the reality of His presence, His power, His goodness and His nature is deposited deeply in your heart.

AHTGB Chapter 4: Soul Ties

soul ties
Well, we dove right into it today, didn’t we? Understanding Soul Ties and the transmission that occurs in relationships is an essential starting point. But this is truly only the beginning. This class will help us to look and understand both what we are giving and injecting into our relationships, and what we are receiving from others. It should be remarkably clear how much our relationships require God’s resources, and how desperately unable they work apart from Him. Thus, survival living simply did all it knew how to do: get needs met.

I want to encourage you that learning these principles is NOT to condemn you. It’s is to help you walk with God and see life from His perspective. God’s call in our lives relationally is going to be to love. This is crazy different from codependence love. But it is still radical.

Are you ready to have eyes to see and have a heart to carry the burdens for people God carries? Do you want more than just the surface level experience that really lacks substance? Strap on your seat belt. We are going for a ride – and the destination is God’s heart!

Read Chapter 5 and complete the homework assignment. This is a very cool principle we will be extracting throughout this book; if you are curious or interested, do some additional bible reading over the holiday on the Old Testament temple. It is simply amazing and such a potent and powerful picture of how He designed our lives.

AHTGB: Chapter 3 Growth

Build-House

REMINDER! NO CLASS WEEK OF THANKSGIVING!

This chapter reminded us of something we often want to bypass: growth must happen, and growth takes time. Usually we enter into recovery and healing with an ideal of an outcome. Certainly God wants to perform that. However, at the very same time we must learn that the building process, just like a physical construction site, has to happen gradually and in sync with the total picture of what God is doing (blueprint). Growth requires more patience than “zaps.”

But it is in the place where we truly allow God to perform what needs to be done on our behalf that we gain access to the miracle of grace. While God is in “process”, we don’t have to be perfect. We can recognize the areas that need changing; we can pray for our part; but He doesn’t require that we get it together overnight…

REMINDER! NO CLASS WEEK OF THANKSGIVING!

This chapter reminded us of something we often want to bypass: growth must happen, and growth takes time. Usually we enter into recovery and healing with an ideal of an outcome. Certainly God wants to perform that. However, at the very same time we must learn that the building process, just like a physical construction site, has to happen gradually and in sync with the total picture of what God is doing (blueprint). Growth requires more patience than “zaps.”

But it is in the place where we truly allow God to perform what needs to be done on our behalf that we gain access to the miracle of grace. While God is in “process”, we don’t have to be perfect. We can recognize the areas that need changing; we can pray for our part; but He doesn’t require that we get it together overnight. His style and method of building cares about our well-being, and seeks to bring us into the intended design for our lives. Yet, He isn’t bothered by the “messiness” that occurs.

My encouragement to you is to embrace where you at right now, even when it feels uncomfortable. Let the Master Designer of your life work; meticulously, to access what needs to be done and it is a GUARANTEE straight from the Word of God that He will complete what He has begun!

“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns”. – Phil 1-6

AHTGB Chapter 2: Season of Preparation

Desktop-Bible-Verse-Wallpaper-Jeremiah-29-11

We had a great class yesterday, and thank you everyone who participated. We continue to learn how to make our phone discussion work, and we did experience a level of success! Thank you Jesus! I believe it’s vital that we hear from others, not just the perspective of the teaching itself.

We had an intense conversation on grief. While sometimes it seems like a topic we’d rather avoid, if we got honest, it’s at the heart of our lives. The greatest need we have is to learn how to both feel the pain, and experience God in His fullness. If that occurs, there is a guaranteed wealth of results! Topics such as grief, suffering and coping barely get attention in most mainstream circles of Christianity – and yet, this is it. Learning the gift of grief, release and true healing is far more satisfying than simply receive the desires of this world. Through this tool, pain is something we can embrace as part of the journey – rather than dread and run. Even better, it frames the Author of this world and ushers us into the reality of the presence and power of God. He really does reign in the midst of a broken world. And He really did overcome!
