This episode takes nuggets from Beyond the Circle series, written by Ted Dekker, to encourage believers to learn more about who they are in Christ. We are a powerful nation of people who keep forgetting who we are and whom we serve. Let's begin practicing what we preach. The host, Lyvita shares AHA moments in her unusal way of reviewing books as they relate to growing in the understanding of who you are as a person and your relationship to the LORD.

How to Integrate the Spiritual Disciplines Into Your Daily Life So You Can Hear God's Voice More Clearly Developing a spiritual rule of life is an important part of integrating the spiritual disciplines in our daily lives. Today we recap all the disciplines and talk about ways to make sure we don't forget their impact in our relationships with God. Hey friends, welcome to the Hearing Jesus Podcast. Do you sometimes doubt if you are truly hearing God's voice or if it's really your own? Do you wonder how you can know the difference? Do you struggle to feel confident in your relationship with God and what He says in his word? Do you sometimes feel stagnant or like you hit a wall in your spiritual life? Hey, I'm your host, Rachael Groll: missionary, author, pastor, and life coach. And I have been there. I, too, was doubting God's voice in my own life. I, too, felt insecure about the things I thought God might be calling me to do. I wanted to make a difference in the world and be obedient to what God was calling me to do, but I wasn't quite sure how to figure out what exactly that was. I kept telling myself that I was wasting time trying to figure it out or waiting for Him to show me. Or that I wasn't qualified to do the things I thought He might be telling me to do. The answer for me was found in the pages of the Bible, as I learned how to understand what it was actually saying. If you are ready to grow in your faith and to step confidently into the calling God has for you, then join me as we dig deep into God's word so you can learn to live out your faith in your everyday life. Friend, you are loved, you are cherished, and you are His. The Hearing Jesus Podcast will encourage and equip you to step into the calling God has for your life, living out your faith in the everyday. Together we will break down walls that keep us from growing spiritually. We will dig deep into our Bibles to understand and connect the Scriptures to our lives. We will boldly obey what God calls us to do, walking through doors that only He can open. Join me for your daily dose of faith, honesty, and prayer.

Women often deal with feelings of insecurity and unworthiness, yet the lives of these women show that Jesus values us, wants a relationship with us, and can use us to further His kingdom. In her warm, conversational style, Rachael ties together her life experience, knowledge of the Scriptures, and her compassion for women to encourage us and enable us to become the women God has called us to be.

In this episode we look at how Scripture describes God's voice and how to hear Him in prayer. We discuss the Spirit's role in speaking, how to check a voice against God's word, and how God's nearness invites us to listen.
The mission of this podcast is to highlight the beauty and diversity of God's Church – both in Chattanooga and the Church at large.Welcome to Season 5 of A Beautiful Church Podcast! For the past four seasons, we've brought you ecumenical voices from across the greater Chattanooga area through Adam's conversations with pastors, priests, and ministry leaders – all with the goal of showing the beauty within the diversity of God's Church and how there's more that unifies us than divides us. Unity is at the core of ChattHOP's mission, and in this season, we're highlighting a different way of building unity by exploring spiritual disciplines that the Church has used for centuries.If you want to go deeper with these spiritual practices, check out the Retreat Guides on our website's Resources page. About Adam WhitescarverAdam is passionate about seeing God's people possess vibrant prayer lives to help them make a difference in the sphere of influence God has given them. In ministry since 2001, Adam enjoys his family, teaching, singing, and reading a myriad of subjects. He and his wife, Stephanie, live in North GA with their four children.

The mission of this podcast is to highlight the beauty and diversity of God's Church – both in Chattanooga and the Church at large.Joining Adam for Season 5 is Micki Ann Harris, the Spiritual Formation Director at the Chattanooga House of Prayer. In this episode, Micki Ann shares how her life experiences led her to Chattanooga and ChattHOP, and she and Adam talk about their Rhythms Retreats and why these spiritual practices are invaluable for Christians.Although Micki Ann became a Christian as a 9-year-old, she found her calling in ministry when she rededicated her life at 20. After moving across the country several times and serving in many church and ministry roles, Micki Ann helped found the Chattanooga House of Prayer in 2010. Her current role is the culmination of years of growing in intimacy with God and feeling a personal need for the beautiful and life-giving spiritual practices that she teaches to others. These spiritual rhythms are the backbone of the retreats Micki Ann leads at ChattHOP, and although there are various rhythms (as you'll hear in this season!), the goal of each one is fostering deeper intimacy with God. Listen in to this episode to find out some of the specific rhythms that Micki Ann and Adam will be discussing this season. About Adam WhitescarverAdam is passionate about seeing God's people possess vibrant prayer lives to help them make a difference in the sphere of influence God has given them.

With today's episode, we're marking the start of our third season of the As You Go podcast. We've made an exciting new addition to the show for this season: Rolling Hills Women's Ministry Director Miranda Kokes will now serve as co-host alongside our Counseling Director, Kathy Koon! If you've been a longtime listener, you might remember that Miranda was one of our guests back in March (2022). If you haven't already, we recommend you check out that episode to get to know her and her story! But, thankfully, not everything has changed. As You Go is still meant to encourage and disciple women who are daily trying to follow Jesus by balancing work, family, friendship, health, and everything else life throws at us. Today's episode starts our new season off strong, complete with our first-ever live audience! We'll be in conversation with Christian author, speaker, and musician, Kelly Minter.Kelly tells us about her upbringing in the church her parents founded in her hometown in Virginia. Later, she shares what drove her to move to middle Tennessee and to begin her vocation as a communicator of the Gospel and Christian living. Now, in her mid 40s, Kelly is a seminary student, a well-known traveling speaker, and an author of numerous books and Bible studies. One such study, titled Encountering God, is currently blessing our Women's Ministry Midweek bible study and small groups, which are collectively called “The Gathering”. The seven-week journey delves into the spiritual disciplines, especially with women in mind. Life gets busy, and if we're not carefully prioritizing our time, it will feel like we don't have enough hours in the day to pursue God. The first step toward getting more consistent and feeling more fulfilled in our spiritual disciplines is recognizing that taking care of our relationship with God is both our first and our last needs! Today, Kelly gives insight into what inspired her to write this new study, and just how significant of a need it aims to meet. Kelly also discusses the challenge of writing about disciplines that she herself has not mastered. As an example, Kelly explains how prayer didn't come as naturally to her as other spiritual disciplines have. And she's not alone: Christ-followers are always striving to live more like our Lord. But we're not Jesus, and perfection should never be our expectation. Kelly shares encouragement and a challenge to stay the course as we pursue small but meaningful growth in these disciplines. Doing life in community makes lots of things easier, and pursuing spiritual growth is one of them. We hope you will take the time to listen to this wonderful conversation with Miranda, Kathy, and Kelly this week. May it encourage you and bless you As You Go.
We hear it all the time, but we're steeped in it in our culture - instant gratification, quick satisfaction, right-now results. We do not want to wait. In our quest for spiritual transformation, we can fall for the quick fix, the... silver bullet!There is none. I talk about the reality of spiritual transformation today as we look at Richard Foster's Celebration of Discipline.

Every Christian knows they are to pray, study the Word, attend worship, and so on. But many Christian families don't know that God expects them to come together in the home to spend time in teaching, worship, and prayer. This week we discuss the what, why, and how of family worship, including: - Why Christian families should view family devotionals as a non-negotiable part of their schedule - What Deuteronomy 6 and Proverbs 22:6 teach us about God's expectations and promises for parents - How to find time in a busy schedule - Practical tips and tools for developing a family worship habit in your home, including Will's brand new Family Worship Guide available at focuspress.org!
STRENGTH IN SOLITUDEPastor Jessica Fernandez, Ph.DSeptember 11, 2022There are many times in life when we experience loneliness - times when we feel alone, empty, and disconnected. On the contrary, solitude is a sense of deep connection with our God where we find a sense of belonging. Jesus often spent time in silence and solitude to encounter the Father. Loneliness is dependent on what is happening around us, whereas solitude is time alone that is focused solely on our dependence on God. In times of loneliness, encountering the Father produces strength in solitude.1. SOLITUDE IS GOD'S REMEDY FOR LONELINESS.“Like many other feelings in our lives, it's easier to experience it than to define it. Loneliness is being all by yourself even when you're surrounded by people. Loneliness is a feeling of isolation even in the midst of a crowd. You feel unwanted. You feel unneeded. You feel as though there's nothing to live for. You feel as though nobody really cares anymore. That's loneliness. Loneliness eats away at the inner person. It saps you of strength. It robs you of hope, Loneliness, as it were, puts a wall around you no matter how free you may be.”- Warren Wiersbe2. LONELINESS IS NOT BEING ALONE, BUT FEELING ALONE. You can BE alone and not FEEL lonely at all.“I found solitary confinement the most forbidding (hostile) aspect of prison life. There is no end and no beginning; there is only one's mind, which can begin to play tricks. Was that a dream or did it really happen? One begins to question everything.” - Nelson Mandela “Solitude is a gift from God, but isolation is a tool of the enemy.” - Carey Nieuwhof3. IN TIMES OF LONELINESS, ENCOUNTERING THE FATHER PRODUCES STRENGTH IN SOLITUDE.“If we possess inward solitude we do not fear being alone, for we know that we are not alone. Neither do we fear being with others, for they do not control us. In the midst of noise and confusion, we are settled into a deep inner silence. Whether alone or among people, we always carry with us a portable sanctuary of the heart.” - Richard Foster• If Jesus, the son of God, the savior of the world had made time to connect with God, without distractions, how much more do we need to be practicing the spiritual discipline of solitude?• If time with God is so important and beneficial - why is it so hard?“Solitude is the Spiritual Discipline of voluntarily and temporarily withdrawing to privacy for spiritual purposes. The period of solitude may last only a few minutes or for days. As with silence, solitude may be sought in order to participate without interruption in other Spiritual Disciplines, or just to be alone with God.”- Donald S. Whitney, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life4. IN THE BUSYNESS AND CRAZINESS OF OUR LIVES, HOW CAN WE DISCONNECT AND UNPLUG TO PRACTICE SOLITUDE?---DISCUSSION QUESTIONS1. Have there been times when you thought you were engaging in solitude and you were actually isolating yourself?2. Have there been specific times when engaging in solitude gave you the strength to deal with certain situations? Or, has God revealed to you areas in your life that need to be dealt with?3. What are some strategies you can implement in your life to increase time in solitude?https://www.springcreekchurch.org/#realspringcreekchurch #strengthinsolitude #solitude #loneliness #lonely #God #connection #belonging #strength
Suicide, cutting and mental illness are on the rise. In this episode Lisa Campbell, a licensed Social Worker, joins host, Lyvita Brooks to discuss 4 things. First, understanding the terms, warning signs, who might attempt suicide and lastly, there is another way of relieving your pain because life is worth living. The Suicide and Crisis Lifeline or Hotline is 988. Saints, this episode is not about rather a person is saved, if they cut themselves or die from committing suicide or have a mental illness. Nor is this episode about, if one loses their salvation if they do commit suicide or die because of it. There is enough information and discussion about that on other podcasts, blogs, magazines, medical information and research, and the National Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Advocacy organization website. Some of us think that Christians should be the "FREE- est" people in the world from dealing with the problems of suicide, or cutting, even mental illnesses. Why? Because Christians have surrendered to the will of God through Jesus Christ. The truth is, Christians are not immune and it all depends on the one thing only God can see, but man can't...a person's heart. The key is developing an on-going relationship with Christ through His word. Then applying His word. One's heart, your heart, your heart's motive, only God knows the truth and you in part. Don't get me wrong in Christ Jesus, you will find hope not a "magic pain-reliever" but the truth. The love, security, and hope you carve are found in Christ Jesus. How much of His love, security and hope you receive will depend on you, even though He has more than an abundance.And yet this episode is not about that either. It's about awakening you to the reality that there will be some Christians that will commit suicide and some will cut themselves, even our youth. We share tools and resources to help if it happens to you or someone you know, and the signs. We are not medical doctors nor are we giving medical advice. These are our experiences as educators, social worker, and believers in Christ. Once again the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline is 988. Shalom.

If you want discipline to feel rigid and miserable, this is not the episode for you. Because Brooke Seale, Lindsay Horton and Camille Adams chat about the spiritual disciplines in a way that makes us want more of them in our lives. They talk about what has, and hasn't, worked for them, the ways they experience grace through spiritual practices, and why they know God more because of them. Rather than giving us a detailed guide to spiritual disciplines their discussion motivates us to step into spiritual routines this fall.

Todd Hall is the author of The Connected Life and professor of Psychology at Biola University and faculty affiliate at the Harvard Human Flourishing Program. In this episode we discuss a key component of healthy leadership: secure attachments. Healthy leaders more likely grew up with safe and secure attachments (primarily with their parents or key caregivers) or have worked to develop safe and secure now in their adult years. Todd Hall unpacks how to grow into a healthy leader by developing those safe and secure attachments.THIS EPISODE'S HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDES:Todd Hall is the author of The Connected Life and professor of Psychology at Biola University and faculty affiliate at the Harvard Human Flourishing Program.According to Todd Hall, a “connected life” is a life in which we feel known and accepted by the important people in our lives. And we don't feel alone with our emotional pain.Having a secure attachment is characterized by: comfort, challenge, and companionship.A life of healthy connectedness requires healthy connections in our childhood.When we don't have strong connections, according to Todd Hall, we can develop unhealthy insecure attachments.Anxious attachment manifests as a feeling that people in my life won't be there for me.Dismissing attachment manifests with shutting down their connections and sense of need for other people.Todd Hall shows how our relationships with our childhood attachment figures impact the way we relate to God.Todd Hall tells his own story of struggling with his relationships as a child and the healing he experienced as he grew up.Peer relationships can also affect our sense of attachment in our relationships.According to Todd Hall, the experience of suffering can lead to growth if it is processed well.We process our suffering well as we bring our suffering to God.The act of “lament” can be a way of bringing our suffering to God.Lament includes four elements:An address to God.A pouring out of our suffering to God.A request to God to alleviate our suffering.An expression of trust in God.When we suffer we also need to bring our experience with people who are safe.In order to lead well, pastors and church leaders need to address their own attachment needs and learn to be attuned to their own emotions.RELEVANT RESOURCES AND LINKS:Books mentioned:The Connected Life, by Todd HallRelational Spirituality, by Todd HallWebsite:www.connectedlifebook.com
