    Immanuel Journaling: Deep Attachment with God

    Immanuel Journaling: Deep Attachment with God

    Immanuel God with us.  That is his promise to us, that he is with us.  Why then is it so hard for us to see, feel, or even sense his presence. Maybe we haven't been  taught, or maybe we don't slow down long enough to notice.  Regardless of the reason I promise you, it is us not him.  So how do we live this life in a way that is with him because He is with us.

    Join Tennison & Ginelle as they discuss the powerful tool of Immanuel Journaling.  This is simple way to improve your awareness of God's presence and understand is goodness.  The practice will build secure attachment to God and strengthen you identity.  Listen as Tennison and Ginelle talk about how this practice changed the way they saw each other and how this was key component of their healing journey.

    The Power of Interactive Appreciation

    The Power of Interactive Appreciation

    Our brains weren’t designed just to problem solve, or acquire knowledge. Truth is, they were first, and foremost, created to give us the ability to live in relationship, and appreciation is the current on which they run. And it keeps your RCs ON and humming. Appreciation involves the recognition, enjoyment, and full understanding of the value of something that you can touch, taste, see, hear, or feel, (nature), or have experienced.
    Living in a constant state of appreciation is crucial for our own wellbeing and the deepening of our relationships.

    Join Tennison & Ginelle as they discuss the power of Interactive Appreciation. Listen in as they explain what it is and share how this simple practice changed their lives.  Hear stories of how others have been impacted by practicing this simple tool.

    Living WITH God ~ Life WITH God pt. 2

    Living WITH God ~ Life WITH God pt. 2

    "LIFE UNDER, OVER, FROM, and FOR GOD each seeks to use God to achieve some other goal. God is seen as a means to an end. For example, LIFE FROM GOD uses him to supply our material desires. LIFE OVER GOD uses him as the source of principles or laws. LIFE UNDER GOD tries to manipulate God through obedience to secure blessings and avoid calamity. And LIFE FOR GOD uses him and his mission to gain a sense of direction and purpose.” 
    “But LIFE WITH GOD is different because its goal is not to use God, its goal is God. He ceases to be a device we employ or a commodity we consume. Instead God himself becomes the focus of our desire. But before we can really desire God, we must have a clear understanding of who he is and what he is like. The reason most people gravitate to one of the other four postures is because they’ve never received a clear vision of who God is, and so they settle for something less.”

    In this episode Tennison and Ginelle conversation centers around what living a LIFE WITH GOD looks like, presented in the book 'WITH: Reimagining The Way You Relate to God' by Skye Jethani.   The LIFE WITH GOD means treasuring him above all else. The goal is not to use God, the goal is God.  The other four postures use God as a means to an end. Those with an incomplete or tainted view of God either want to use Him or dismiss Him

But if we don't have a clear understanding of who he is and what he is like we will gravitate to one of the other four postures. Those with a full clear picture of God want nothing less than to be with him. Once we see and understand who and what God truly is, He will cease to be how we acquire our treasure, and become our treasure. Listen in as Tennison & Ginelle begin this compelling discussion.

    Living WITH God ~ Life FOR God

    Living WITH God ~ Life FOR God

    “LIFE UNDER, OVER, FROM, and FOR GOD each seeks to use God to achieve some other goal. God is seen as a means to an end. For example, LIFE FROM GOD uses him to supply our material desires. LIFE OVER GOD uses him as the source of principles or laws. LIFE UNDER GOD tries to manipulate God through obedience to secure blessings and avoid calamity.

    In this episode Tennison and Ginelle conversation centers around what living a LIFE FOR GOD looks like, presented in the book 'WITH: Reimagining The Way You Relate to God' by Skye Jethani.  LIFE FOR GOD is the fourth posture that Skye Jethani talks about. The LIFE FOR GOD posture is motivated by a fear of living an insignificant life.  The mission or the task becomes the center of the Christian life.  Join Tennison and Ginelle as they begin to untangle this very popular stance in the life of christians.  If not checked the mission controls almost everything: time, relationships, health, spiritual depth, ethics, and convictions. In advanced stages, missionalism means doing whatever it takes to solve the problem. In its worst iteration, the end always justifies the means. The family goes; health is sacrificed; integrity is jeopardized; God connection is limited. The goal is to do this life WITH God.

    In this episode Tennison and Ginelle conversation centers around what living a LIFE FROM GOD looks like, presented in the book 'WITH: Reimagining The Way You Relate to God' by Skye Jethani.  LIFE FROM GOD is the third posture that Skye Jethani talks about.  People that live in this posture believe that God exists to supply what we need or desire. Receiving God’s gifts is the entirety of our relationship with Him.  They have reduced God to a Genie to grant is our desires.  Living here Feeds into our selfish nature, it cuts off the redemptive purpose of pain, and in our pursuit of distraction by comfort we forget the One who alone is able to deliver us, and we seek lesser things.  When this happens we believe that what we want is want God wants for us. We then truly miss out on the good gifts that the Father wants to give us.

Made an impression

My husband and I have been listening to the relational maturity series. I want to tell everyone about these. Some of these subjects have been an answer to prayer. For example, I have been praying about my relationship with my children and asking God for wisdom as we raise them. There have been so many answers to specific questions and a lot of insights into fulfilling my roll in a healthy way.

LANGUAGE OF LOVE!!!

The tools in this podcast put words to the gaps we all are missing in how to love one another. So many problems that we find as fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters have the same roots. Roots of broken relationships that have created wounds and those wounds have been healed lightly.

The tools and Language given by Tenison and Ginelle are life changing. The simplicity and clarity are inspirational and make to the path to health accessible to anyone willing to “do the work”.

The language of love spoken simply and clearly, that is the value of this podcast.

That does not mean that the path to love and healthy relationships is easy! But for the first time in my life some clear teaching on “how” has given hope.

Ubuntu Works ,

Real

I appreciate the real, raw, open and authentic way this beautiful couple share their life. Wholeness comes when we find safe community to share the good the bad and the ugly. If you want to be your best you then listen in and be ready to grow!
