    Getting Unstuck in Life, Part 2 with Tracy Hester

    Getting Unstuck in Life, Part 2 with Tracy Hester

    "Have you ever felt you were not moving forward in your life, but were not sure what was holding you back? You knew something prevented you from growing emotionally and spiritually, but you couldn't put your finger on what. Uncovering what makes us stay stuck is vital because dwelling in a pit only allows us to watch and dream. We can't walk into the plans and purposes God has gifted and called us to be while remaining stuck."
    -Tracy Hester, "Get Up Girl! Getting Unstuck and Living Free"

    In Part 2, Author and Life Coach, Tracy Hester, shares how an exhibit at a local museum helped her understand the concert of "being stuck" in a whole new way. As she read the history of the La Brea Tar Pits in Los Angeles, her eyes were opened to the perils of her own stuckness in life.

    Does Our Perception Process Affect Our Prayer Life? Part 2

    Does Our Perception Process Affect Our Prayer Life? Part 2

    "When we view (perceive) prayer as a call to duty or a responsibility, it also affects how we approach it. We feel obliged to pray and guilty when we don't do it. This perspective often leads us to believe that negative consequences may befall us if we neglect prayer and makes our prayer life driven by fear and guilt. But, 2 Timothy 1:7 states, 'For God has not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.'"

    Does our perception process affect our prayer life? In Part 2, Janet McHenry, author of Praying Personalities: Finding Your Natural Prayer Style, continues to guide us into understanding the difference between perceiving prayer as a privilege instead of a responsibility. She also invites us to get to know our individual, God-breathed pray-er personality.

    Does Our Perception Process Affect Our Prayer Life?

    Does Our Perception Process Affect Our Prayer Life?

    "In our prayer lives, we cherish the continual chance to strengthen our faith through an active prayer routine, viewing it as a rare privilege. With sincere dedication, we approach each instance of prayer with reverence, recognizing the gravity of the bestowed privilege. Committed to fortifying our faith, we follow scriptural guidance by praying in the spirit on all occasions, utilizing various forms of prayer to deepen our spiritual connection. We keep firing up!
    Also, when we perceive our relationship as a privilege, we are better positioned to invest in that connection wholeheartedly. This perspective encourages us to approach the relationship with a sense of gratitude, prompting us to contribute our utmost to its success and fulfillment.
    -https://thecophq.org/the-lens-of-perception-on-prayer-relationships/

    What does perception have to do with our prayer lives?

    Everything.

    Because the perception process is a continual process, it means it informs every single aspect of our lives, including our spiritual formation.

    Today, Janet McHenry, author of Praying Personalities: Finding Your Natural Prayer Style invites us to understand our unique God-breathed design for prayer. She writes, "We've all heard the 'you-shoulds' on prayer from pulpits, presenters, and well-meaning friends. But when none of these ways feel natural, what's next?"

    Let's find out. Take a listen and join the further conversation over on Instagram and Substack.
