HEALING (PHYSICAL-EMOTIONAL)

Physical and Emotional HealingHealing (Physical-Emotional):  When the body breaks down, it rightly cries out for our attention. Displaying a tremendous heart of compassion, Jesus healed everyone brought before Him. He didn’t just do it once. He did it on every recorded occasion. This shows us our Father’s heart as well: No matter how or why we get sick, God wants us healed! Because Jesus is the same today as He was yesterday, you can count on it that He is just as ready and willing to heal us now as He was then.

The Lord also wants to heal us from the inside out. Both Solomon and Jesus declare that the important issues of life flow out from the depths of our hearts. Practically all of us carry stuff from our past which can spill over and influence, even control, the new life that Jesus wants to give us. Emotions that overwhelm us in the present (like fear, anxiety, hurt feelings, anger, depression, etc.) are things God wants to free us from. Go for this glorious liberty!

I do, however, want to draw your attention to an all-too-often overlooked and unclaimed power always available, ever at work, which also flows from the cross: the power of God to bring good out…

The ABCs of Emotional Intelligence

The ABCs of Emotional Intelligence (How to Live Free of Negative Emotions)

Everyone has emotions. The question is: Do they have you? Are you the head, or have you mostly been the tail? Do your emotions feel like a pack of wild dogs that require a lot of effort just keeping them under control, or are they like a herd of reindeer moving as one? If they’re like wild dogs, your first need is for recovery. If they’re like the reindeer, you have already passed into mastery. Learning how to get free…

Transformers Activate

Transformers Activate!

“Transformers activate!” is a phrase from the toy craze my son went through years ago. Right now, it has me thinking about what  the Lord uses to “activate” us—His “transformers”! Like Hasbro’s toys we, too, have been created to be genuine transformers. Unquestionably, Jesus wants to use us to transform the world around us. For that to happen, however, we will have to learn the way of being continually transformed ourselves. If not, we risk being put back “on the shelf” by the…
