Why Christian affirmations can mess you up instead of helping (and later I will cover what to say to yourself instead that will help.) Affirmations are like screaming that you’re okay in order to overcome this whisper that you’re not. That’s a big contrast to actually uncovering the whisper, realizing that it’s a passing memory, and moving closer to all those fears and all those edgy feelings that maybe you’re not okay. Well, no big deal. None of us is okay and all of us are fine. It’s not just one way. We are walking, talking paradoxes. — Pema Chödrön,
Did you know that they had cars in Jesus’ time? Yes, the Bible says that they came in one Accord. Did you know that there was a baseball game in the Bible? Eve stole first, Adam stole second, the prodigal made a homerun, and Gideon rattled the pitchers. What kind of lights did Noah have on the ark? Flood lights. Why didn’t Noah catch fish to feed his hungry family? He only had two worms! What do John the Baptist and Winnie the Pooh have in common? Their middle names.

At the outset of writing the book, I wanted to establish some key understandings that will guide you. 1. This book is about Jesus and God and how he is interested in you. 2. God delights in blessing you in every area of your life and revealing himself to you, believe it or not. 3. You are significant to God from your smallest dreams, feelings, hopes and desires. If it matters to you it matters to him. 4. You can be real with him. He is personal. He cares and heals us. He feels with you in your every pain
“The God Experience” book is all about Jesus. It is about his passionate love for you and his desire for you to experience Him in your life, but before we go on let me ask you this question “do you believe that Jesus is interested in revealing himself to you?”. Take a moment to reflect on this. My friend, I am so glad that we have the opportunity to share this experiential journey, because I want you to know that Jesus and God the Father delight to reveal themselves to you and it will be your biggest blessing ever. Guaranteed. Jesus is infinitely interested
Why doesn’t everybody experience god? Are they pre requisites? Is God hiding? Will God zap me if… Lets back up a bit first. God created mankind as his crowning creation, and he created and formed you individually with personal attention to detail. So he could hide from you – how ridiculous! The chief purpose of man is to glorify God and to enjoy him forever. Yes enjoy him. The Heidelberg Catechism contains 2 questions about worshipping god, and the remaining almost 200 questions to be answered by adherents to the faith are all about how they can enjoy god. Somewhere
As I mentioned in my last blog – what we can look forward to in the God Experience project. It is also quite important to consider why these positive outcomes are so wonderful to us. Their appeal would be quite lost if we already had them or they were easy to obtain. Unfortunately for most of us that is not our experience instead we have a range of experiences that have given us just the opposite outcome. I would like to consider these as it helps us to be real with ourselves, and understand why we are so motivated to
My Book Project called “The God Experience: How to have a Spiritual Transformation in 24 Hours” is progressing well… So what would readers of this book experience as a result of applying its truths and applications? Let me ask you if you can relate to any of these positive outcomes from applying this book’s key truths. 1. Imagine being able to hear God’s voice leading you, encouraging you and explaining life to you? 2. Imagine regularly receiving divine dreams, visions and appearances from God? 3. Imagine being able to discern and know for sure the will of God? 4.
Recently I realized I have a gift to share. a gift that many others around me need. I realized that sharing this gift is something that delights me deep down on the inside. As soon as I saw it like that, it suddenly felt sort of selfish to keep it to myself. Not in a guilty way but in an encouraging and empowering way. It is a great feeling to really be needed. I had discovered something really valuable that would be both worthwhile and fun to share. It dawned on me that what I had, was what I had
The God experience is a basic manual for anyone to experience God personally. A simple guide that cuts through all the religious smoke and gets you straight to God. A workshop style book with exercises, quizzes and other interactive tools to help you to a positive and enduring experience of God.
