    Breaking Down Barriers to Biblical Health

    Breaking Down Barriers to Biblical Health

    #095// There are two things keeping you out of Biblical health territory -- and they aren't your self-discipline or the diet plan you're following.
    Seven years ago I heard the Lord tell me to get my certificate in holistic health coaching. It wasn't so I could start a one-on-one health coaching practice (or even so I could pull myself out of a health relapse nose dive I was dealing with at the time). Nope, He told me to spend the time in prayer and Holy Spirit-led learning so I could teach His Church how to live long enough and strong enough to do and be all they were created for. He said this thing to me --
    "Erica, my Church is meant to be the healthiest Body on the face of the planet. With everything I've made available to them -- my Word, the blood of my Son, the Holy Spirit to teach them and guide them, my grace -- they should be having a very different experience when it comes to their health and healing."
    I was completely convicted and set on mission. And over the last seven years I've crafted a number of different faith-based "stewarding health well" programs that have helped folks to align their lifestyle with the Bible, to see vibrancy and stability come to their health. They've learned to build a resilient life according to the truth found in God's word, and they've received tremendous healing along the way.
    But there tend to be two specific roadblocks I see folks struggle with on the journey to stewarding health well, and on this week's episode of the Positioned to Prosper podcast I'm putting them on blast. If we can see these roadblocks, identify them, and exchange them in Christ for something better, we can continue on the journey to Biblical health. So are you ready to learn what those two roadblocks are and if they've been standing in your way? Are you ready to bust through these barriers to step into vibrant and robust health to live long enough and strong enough so you can do and be all God created you for? If so, grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let's Go!

    The 4 Questions Every Real Christian Should Be Asking

    The 4 Questions Every Real Christian Should Be Asking

    #094// Does your prayer always seem to start with or major on "What should I do, Lord?  We've all been there, caught in the midst of a "situation," having to make a decision in a moment of crisis or tension, and we "throw up a prayer." And most times that prayer in that moment is something akin to, "What do I dooooooooo?" Is there a better way to approach God and prayer that would yield better answers in a better time frame? Yes, my friend! A million times, YES.
    Over the past few years I've spent time with folks who are making many different types of decisions in various situations and, time and time again, it became apparent that there are four very specific questions that can lead us seamlessly through a direct discussion with God to help us arrive at the issue of what to do next with a lot less stress and a whole lot more peace and confidence.
    Are you ready to learn what the four questions every single Christian should really be asking God pretty much all the time so you can see that peace and confidence, too? If so, I want you to grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and Let's Go!

    What's Possible For You In Real Rest

    What's Possible For You In Real Rest

    #093// Some things you've been wanting from God, you can only get in His Rest. Sometimes the thing we need really relies on our position, and the rest of God is a prime position to be in. It's in His rest that we can receive without striving, we can overcome without having to think up the perfect battle plan for ourselves, and we can trust even when we don't have all the data in hand and processed. But we cannot have that quality of experience if we do not enter into and remain -- abide! -- in God's rest. Your position matters.
    Do you know what the ultimate picture of God's rest is in the Bible? It's that Garden right in the beginning of the story! We start to see that God is leading us back to that Garden at every turn. The Garden is the Kingdom and the Kingdom is the Garden! And once we see the qualities of His rest that are found in His Garden/Kingdom, we can start to see them all throughout the stories of the Bible. And once we see them all throughout the stories of the Bible, guess what . . .
    We can engage the Kingdom in ANY situation and learn to ABIDE in His rest!
    In this episode of the Positioned to Prosper podcast, I'm sharing the last message in a series I've been preaching at my home church of REVIVE Church of Tampa on real rest. Have a listen as I share how you can learn to remain in real rest by seeing the real rest that was offered in so many different situations throughout the Bible. You can access and abide in rest the same way! So if you're ready to round out this month's study on the rest of God, grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let's Go!

    How to Enter Into & Abide in the Rest of God

    How to Enter Into & Abide in the Rest of God

    #092// You can't "effort" your way into grace, but God can grace you for effective effort.

    Why are we "programmed" to think we have to work hard and do our very best in order to "deserve" God's rest? It's a question I think about a lot since the Bible tells us something very different about entering into God's rest. The writer of Hebrews makes it clear: We fail to enter God's rest when we fail to believe God at His Word and when we fail to obey what He says. So why don't we just trust and obey? #MillionDollarQuestion
    In this episode of the Positioned to Prosper podcast I'm sharing the message I preached this past Sunday at my home church, REVIVE Church of Tampa, entitled: How to Enter Into and Abide in the Rest of God. We revisited the four powerful questions we can ask the Lord to enter into His rest, and I also addressed a few matters around processing trauma and pain without picking up co-dependent coping mechanisms so you can stay abiding in rest, even when relationships and life are presenting tough challenges. Are you ready to get into it? Then grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let's Go!

    The World's Rest vs Kingdom Rest

    The World's Rest vs Kingdom Rest

    #091// We've been sold a definition of rest by this world that just isn't accurate. The kind of rest the world pushes is insufficient. Have you realized this yet? The more you religiously engage with the self-care rituals, the more you aggressively disappear for “me time,” the more you pursue products that promise to curb your anxiety and bring you balance, the more you worship at the altar of “margin” . . . the more real rest you’ll actually need. The world’s rest is actually consumptive. It’s a demonic plan, straight from the pit of hell, designed to wear you out. See Daniel 7:25, friend. It’s a strategy!
    Kingdom rest, however, is completely different. God wants to “bake rest in” to our everyday lives. He doesn’t want us to have to vacate our lives to find rest, recovery and recharge. He wants us to live in His rhythm of grace where we are constantly full, and being filled, because we abide in Him. Are you ready to make the switch from the worldly rest that robs into Kingdom rest that redeems? If so, I want you to dig into this week’s Positioned to Prosper podcast episode. Grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let’s Go!

    Are You Experiencing Real Rest?

    Are You Experiencing Real Rest?

    #090// Most Christians aren't experiencing real rest, and it shows. With the levels of anxiety, overwhelm and burnout we experience, is it really a surprise that most Christians aren’t really “doing rest right?” I know it just feels like one more thing to “worry” about, but when we get this rest thing “right,” it’s going to change *everything.* I promise!
    In this episode of the Positioned to Prosper podcast I’m sharing the kick-off message of a series of messages I’m bringing this month at my home church — REVIVE Church of Tampa — on real rest, the kind of rest we find defined and demonstrated by God in the Bible. Are you ready to understand what real rest is and then to be empowered to step into it? If so, I want you to grab your Bible, your journal and a pen, and . . . Let’s Go!
