Edge God In Podcast 34: Holding Patterns: Are You In One?

EdgeGodIn.com

Dear Lord,

Too often I find myself in a state of fear and anxiety as I wait for a specific response from another person or a desired outcome. Help me to know that you do some of your greatest work within my soul in the midst of holding patterns in life. Godly character is formed and refined in the midst of waiting on and trusting in you. Up my ability to trust that you are working on my behalf in the midst of the wait. Fill me with trust and patience more today than yesterday so that my joy and sense of safety remains constant whether I know or whether I don’t know. You know and that is enough for me.

Dear Lord,

Help! I am attached to positions, responses, people and situations outside of myself and it’s stressing me out. Fill me with the ability to choose 1 attachment: my heart to yours, my will to yours. It is for freedom that you have set me free from the shiny objects and loud voices in the world, help me to declare with conviction what St. Paul declared at the end of his life: I consider all things a loss compared to the surpassing knowledge of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. Interrupt me when I am spun out because I have attached my meaning and significance to the outside world. Bring me back home to you where my peace is profound and my joy is complete.

Holy Scripture Focus:

  • Matthew 16:24-26
  • Philippians 3:4-14
  • 1 Timothy 5:3-10

Edge God In Podcast 32: W.O.W. Your Mind in Christ 

The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. The mind governed by the flesh is hostile to God; it does not submit to God’s law, nor can it do so. Those who are in the realm of the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you. Romans 8:6-11

Edge God In Podcast 31: Don’t Let Stress Be the Boss of You

EdgeGodIn.com

Dear Lord, remind my mind, for this is the true battleground for victory over stress, that your presence within me is greater than any encounter I will experience with outer circumstances. Too often I forget that you have already overcome all that I feel has overcome me. I am not my struggle, opinions of other people or even the pain and anguish I experience on this journey of life. I am your child and you have woven within me the ability through Christ to move any mountain I face, to tear down any lie or false conclusion that speaks death into my perceptions rather than life.

Dear Lord, open my heart and mind to your unselfish ways. You served others over your own needs. You continually loved in the face of hatred. May my motives be rooted in your love for me. For I cannot give out what I have not experienced within. Help me to put to death all of the faces of greed in my life. Make me aware of the tricky spots that greed hides behind when it comes to my behavior. I find myself it a place of generosity when it is convenient and fits in with my to-do list. Move me to generosity with my time, assumptions and behavior. I want to make you recognizable in this world. Have your way with me in spite of myself.

Edge God In Podcast 26: 3 Excuses That Edge God Out

Dear Lord, I give you permission to slow me down. Too often I am unwilling to edge you into my busy life, as if being busy makes me more important or purposeful. Teach me how to hear your invitation to draw near to you today. Override my agenda, to-do lists and pursuit to be enough and fill them with your presence Lord. Forgive me for every declined invitation I have sent back to you. Forgive me for putting things above my relationship with you and the people I love. I know your word does not return to you void but accomplishes the purpose for which it’s sent. If I am too busy you will use someone else to accomplish your will on earth. Wake me up to remember what I have learned during the storms in my life. Lord, where else do I need to go, for in you and with you I lack nothing. No more excuses, I choose you. Move me to draw closer to you today than yesterday.

Edge God In Podcast 24: A 3 Step Prison Break Part 1

Dear Lord, too often we experience identity theft that results in behavior and emotions that do not make you recognizable in this world. Forgive us for following the shiny objects that end up imprisoning us in the vicious cycle of asserting our will over your will, our thoughts over the Holy Scriptures and our emotions over the fruit of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and self-control. Break us free Lord from the sin that so easily entangles us and the yoke of slavery that restricts us in our small cocoon of fear, doubt and worry. We want to fly with you to the places you have prepared for us to go. Override our EGO, just as you did for Peter, Paul, Zacchaeus and Thomas and set us free from the prison of self: I, me, my.

Edge God In Podcast 17: Relationship Management EQ

EdgeGodIn.com

My ability to respond in a conscious Godly manner in the face of negative emotions is in direct proportion to my awareness around the truth that I am not another person’s emotional expressions. As I anchor my identity and beliefs in God, I am able to offer responses that validate, empathize and encourage the sender of the emotions. When I forget that I am safe and connected the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords I am vulnerable to defensive behavior which pushes people away and blocks healthy solutions. “1-Uping”, “You Should” and “At least” language will prevent a healthy flow of meaning between me and the sender of the emotions. Dear God, who will save me from my insecurities and self-doubt and fear? Thanks, be to God through Jesus Christ my Lord, I can give space for the Holy Spirit to anchor me in Christ’s confident, consistent loving kindness which will overflow into my emotional intelligence within relationships I encounter on my earth school journey.
