Beliefs Keep You Connected to The Rhythm of Heaven

Paul says we are no longer slaves  to sin, then why do so many of us fall into such great sin?  Or, rather why do we have so many small sin things that constantly draw on us and wear us out?   Because we are working on Acting right instead of believing in the work of The Cross! John 6:29 Jesus says our job is to believe, not to act right.  The WORK of God is Belief—it is thinking and…

Hiding Ourselves Instead of Running to God

Buffering is defined in the dictionary as “shielding yourself against something or someone”.  I would also like to add the idea of buffering against our emotions. That we shield ourselves against our emotions and passionate intimacy with God. How many of you have ever done something to shield yourself against painful emotions?   Drugs and alcohol are used to buffer, to shield us from our emotions.  Pornography is used to keep us from experiencing loneliness and the painful emotions of…

Emotions Connected to The Rhythm of Heaven

Rhythm:  a strong, regular, repeated pattern of movement or sound. Jump into this message with every ounce of passion you have as we explore how important expressing our worst emotions to our Father. “We cannot, we will not, be able to live the abundant life of the gospel of Jesus Christ without a strong, regular, repeated pattern of emotional and intellectual affection towards God.”  It may be that every struggle that we have can be overcome by living in Rhythm…

Compromised Faith

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase:  “I don’t want to compromise my Faith?” Most of us think: SIN! All of us hate to think that we would compromise our Faith.  And, mostly when we think of that phrase—“Compromise Your Faith” we think about it at the level of… “I don’t swear because it would compromise my faith” “I don’t drink because it would compromise my faith”  “I don’t ___________ because it would compromise my faith”  Listen in…

Powerful Women

 Did you know that we don’t see what is in front of us but we see what we are looking for?  If you are looking in the mirror and looking for a powerless person, than you will find one!  If you read scripture, look at God and then look in the mirror for a powerful person, you will find one!    In fact, IF you feel powerless and IF you find yourself constantly saying things and doing things that prove…

Mother’s Day Breakthrough Prayer

Jesus takes the broken pieces of you life and properly places them into a beautiful mosaic that re-tells your beautiful story. And if you have been crushed and the broken pieces have been turned to dust, that is not any more difficult of a job for Jesus to bring beauty to those ashes. When emotions and thoughts are jumbled up and causing chaos, Jesus is the Master Electrician that comes in and restores order. Listen in as Pastor Les encourages…

Tending Seeds in the Secret Place

I was blown away by Stevie’s insight into The Secret Place last Sunday.  I loved how he stated that in the secret place we enter in and within it there are seeds.  And, when we enter into that place we are to tend to those seeds.  I believe that it is those seeds that will eventually, when watered with patience and faith and action, that will produce the life you really want to live.  What do you do in the…

5 Ways to Agape Your Self

I want to start with the wrong religious belief that may be keeping you from being able to love yourself.  Religious teaching from the pulpit often demands that we love others as an obligation instead of an outpouring.  This teaching goes something like YOU MUST love others more than you love yourself!  YOU MUST give sacrificially.  YOU MUST love unconditionally.  YOU MUST…  (here is where you can fill in your YOU MUST statement). When church teaches us that Love is…
