Friendship On Fire

Friendship On Fire

I had the opportunity to attend the 10th annual SheLovesGod Virtual Women’s Conference this week, hosted by Marnie Pehrson (creator of IdeaMarketers.com).

On Thursday, October 29th, Marnie’s guest was Dr. Linda Miles, author of “Friendship On Fire: Passionate and Intimate Connections for Life” and “All Aboard The Brain Train: Teaching Your Child to Live With Purpose”, just to name a couple of her books.

I was thrilled to hear Dr. Miles (who has been a marriage and family therapist for over 30 years) talk about the frontal lobe of our brain, referring to it as our “God gear”, with the lower part of our brain being labeled our “fear gear” or our “snake brain”.

Dr. Linda Miles discussed some research that has recently been conducted which is suggesting that Alzheimer’s patients can actually benefit and improve by actively following a daily spiritual practice, in order to help heal the damaged cells in their brains which cause the memory loss.

Linda has a knack for explaining how God created us to be different than animals, and you’ll love the tips that she gives for improving the tension and stress in your relationships with your spouse and/or your children.

Here’s my review that I did of the book, at Amazon.com:

Be Blessed From Your Action & Perseverance, October 8, 2009

~ By Susan M. Hampton, C.E.C. (The FEEL N.O.W. Success Coach) – Certified Life Empowerment Coach

As one of 38 contributing authors to the Overcomers, Inc. anthology, I knew in my heart that this book was a special project which would provide many people with hope, courage, and inspiration — I just didn’t have a clue as to how big of an impact these stories could have on others, until I read my first copy I received this past week. Whether you’re dealing with the loss of a loved one, the struggles of a divorce, the trauma of past sexual abuse, the emotions that come from being told you have a fatal disease or illness, the stress of financial difficulties, or just plain fears or obstacles that can be encountered in life, THIS is an inspiring book to read. Each author’s chapter is laid out within 5 or 6 pages, so you can pick it up whenever you wish, and read for as long as you choose to. You’ll find yourself laughing and crying, and making note of your favorite stories that you’ll want to read again. In the introduction, Lynne Klippel tells us we “will find real life tales of remarkable courage, strength, and perseverance…” This reminds me of a couple of verses from the book of James, found in the NIV version of the Holy Bible. James 1:12a says “Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial” and James 5:11a states “As you know, we consider blessed those who have persevered.” If you are looking to be encouraged and uplifted, read this book. Once you do, you’ll know in your heart that if you take ACTION to OVERCOME, and PERSEVERE, you too will be blessed!

Experiencing Adversity In Your Life?

When was the last time you experienced adversity in your life?  There are many people who are experiencing adversity nowadays, and they are looking for answers and solutions that will change the outcome of their current situation.  Are you one of those people?

I like to look at adversity as being a situation or circumstance that opposes

one’s interests or desires.  Some people see adversity as an unfortunate event or circumstances, a condition marked by misfortune, or even a catastrophe.

Did you realize that an antonym for the word adversity, is PROSPERITY?  Prosperity is good fortune or can even be described as a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition.

If prosperity is considered to be an opposite condition of adversity, then when we are aligning ourselves with God’s will for us, or even looking at our role in His Divine Plan that He has designed, AND when we are in alignment with His desires for us, then it makes sense that we could flourish and thrive in a successful manner.

Yet if we are NOT aligning our will with God’s will and we are opposing what He has desired for us, then we attract adverse situations into our lives.

God wants to pour His freely given, unmerited favor, love, grace, and blessings upon us, to enhance and beautify our lives.

If you are experiencing something in your life right now, that you feel opposes your interests or desires, OR worse yet, you just feel like you’re in the middle of a catastrophic moment, then do yourself a favor and follow these guidelines:

-Spend some quiet with God (or your Higher Power).

-Ask for clarity and direction, so that you can carry out God’s purpose for you today.

-Focus on what you have a passion for, and think about the possibilities of what you can do with that thing you are passionate about – what you can do to serve God and serve others around you in this world.

When we get out of our “self” and do things for others, it is often one of the best solutions that we can use, to change our adverse feelings and emotions.  Serving others brings us out of the “dumps” and allows us to experience sensations of joy.

May you experience much joy and many blessings today!

I Am The Way

John 14:6-14 (NIV) Holy Bible

6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 7 If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.”

8 Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”

9 Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in the Father, and that the Father is in me? The words I say to you are not just my own. Rather, it is the Father, living in me, who is doing his work. 11 Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves. 12 I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. 13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Son may bring glory to the Father. 14 You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.

****************************

Look especially at verses 12 through 14. Jesus was saying that “anyone” who has faith in Him will do what He has been doing. He went on to say that anyone who has faith in Him, will do even greater things than these. He will do whatever we ask in His name, so that He (God’s Son) brings glory to God the Father.

Having FAITH is believing in the truth that does not depend on material evidence. Jesus instructed us to HAVE FAITH (which is believing) and ASK in His name.

Do yourself a favor, and get in the habit of having faith and believing in Jesus, so that you align your will with His will for you. Jesus is in the Father and God the Father is in Him. Since God also made us in His image, He is within us. When we are in alignment with Him and His will for us, it is easier to know what God’s desires are for us.

God loves to hear and see the fruits of His desires for us, reflected back to Him. So next time you ask your heavenly Father for something, remember that what you are asking for is most likely what He wants for you anyway…and He’s the one who placed the thoughts and ideas into your mind, and placed the feelings in your heart.

Now have passion and follow God’s purpose for you BEING here. Take your action steps to demonstrate God’s divine plan in your life today.

I AM that I AM – I am experiencing N.O.W.

I woke up thinking about the phrase “I AM that I AM”. This is the answer in the
Bible, that God gave to Moses, when Moses asked for His name.  The Hebrew version
of this phrase is “Ehyeh asher ehyeh”, which literally often translates to
“I-shall-be that I-shall-be”.

The word “Ehyeh” shows up 43 places in the Old Testament where it is often
translated as “I will be”, like in Exodus 3:12.  The final time that it shows up
in the Old Testament, in Zechariah 8:8, it is most often translated as “I shall be”.

“Ehyeh” comes from the Hebrew idea that God exists within each and every one of us
AND by Himself at the same time.

When I started thinking about the affirmation phrase that God inspired me with —
I am experiencing N.O.W. [New Omnipotent Ways of] God’s constant flow of _________
[fill in the blank with what you are believing for, in the present moment, with
feelings and emotions], and thought about the “I am” part of the phrase, here’s what
I thought.  Whether it’s “I AM”, or “I shall be”, or “I will be”, all of these phrases
describe the state of “being”.  When we are “being”, doesn’t that really describe us
in a spiritual state?

God made us in His image and likeness.  We are a spirit in a physical body.  Jesus said
“I and the Father are one” in John 10:30 (NIV) from the New Testament.

As you are “being” today, contemplate on how magnificent God is, and how He created
you to “be” a unique “being”, different than any other human “being” He created.  Dwell
on His Word, and align your will with His will for You.  Then focus on your desires, as
they are His desires that He placed on your heart and in your mind.  Set up an action
plan and prioritize your steps.  Take action and let God handle the results!  If you
are “being” in alignment with God’s will for you, His desires will come to fruition in
your life, and your results will end up being better than you could have imagined!
