THE WHOLEHEARTED LEADER PILLAR 4: Holiness of Character The Soil of Adversity In this fourth pillar of becoming a wholehearted leader, I want to share what it means to walk out holiness of character. Paul said that "suffering produces perseverance, perseverance produces character, and character produces hope" (Romans 5:3-4). We must learn to grow the fruit of the Spirit in the soil of adversity. We must learn to see ourselves as the righteousness of God and to live by faith to become like Christ, so that we display His character. How do we become holy? God made us holy [...]

THE WHOLEHEARTED LEADER PILLAR 3: WHOLENESS OF HEART Why Do I Need Heart Checks? An important element of moving forward in the journey toward wholeness of heart is “checking in” with each of the core parts of our hearts. Are they in a relationship with God? Are they working in cohesion with each other? What conflicts need to be resolved so they are no longer separated from each other and from a loving relationship with Jesus? What needs to be unpacked to get a whole heart? To have a whole heart, we must unpack the trauma and the pain. We [...]
THE WHOLEHEARTED LEADER PILLAR 3: WHOLENESS OF HEART What Happens When I’m Wholehearted? Where is your heart today? Are the parts of your heart working in harmony with each other and with Jesus? I want you to get alone with the Lord and discover whether you are living from a place of wholeheartedness. Using the HeartSync model, allow God to lead and guide you to the deep places of your heart, entering into an Immanuel Moment, where you tap into a memory of intensely experiencing His presence and His joy. In your Immanuel Moment, when you’re in a really good [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 3: WHOLENESS OF HEART My HeartSync Prayer Session Jesus is longing for you to experience His vast love and to have wholeness of heart, so you can intimately know Him and experience the abundance and joy He came to give. A valuable tool for wholeness of heart is the HeartSync model of inner healing – allowing Jesus to connect with each part of our heart (Emotion, Function, and Guardian) and then having those parts connect with each other and work in sync. One tool that HeartSync uses is the Immanuel Moment – allowing the Lord to [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 3: WHOLENESS OF HEART Developing a Healthy, Permeable Filter To achieve wholeness of heart, the three parts of our heart need to connect to Jesus and then synchronize with each other. Jesus rebuilds what was broken through lack of early attachment as infants or through trauma that occurred at various points in our lives. An important part of our heart is Guardian, who stands between the other two parts – Function and Emotion – and ensures we have healthy boundaries. When we are emotionally healthy, our Function and our Emotion work together in beautiful synchrony, as [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 3: WHOLENESS OF HEART What Scripture Says about Wholeness of Heart As the Kingdom of God advances, we need leaders in the body of Christ who are healed up, grown-up, and maturely loving those around them. In this third pillar of becoming a whole-hearted leader, we will learn how to heal and mature into wholeness of heart. In this pillar, I will share concepts from HeartSync, an inner healing prayer ministry model founded by Father Andrew Miller. These concepts help us discover the three parts of our heart and synchronize them with God and each other, [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 3: WHOLENESS OF HEART The Three Parts of My Heart What does it mean to have wholeness of heart? It means synchronizing the various aspects of our heart and bringing them into full connection with God. To do that, we first need to understand what the different parts of our heart are. We also need to recognize what can cause us to have a divided heart. As we discuss wholeness of heart, I will be using the language and principles taught in HeartSync Ministries. What is HeartSync? HeartSync is an inner healing prayer ministry model [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY Exchanging Pain for Joy Childlike faith – what does that mean to you? Can you remember when you were three or four years old, and just sitting on your father’s lap? Or maybe more recently, when you were the parent and your child was just resting in your embrace, fully relaxed, fully secure, knowing they were loved? When Jesus was asked who was greatest in His kingdom, He pulled a little child to Him and told His disciples that whoever humbles himself like a little child is the greatest in the kingdom. Whoever can [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY Why Soaking Prayer is Vital The longer you can remain in that place where you are connecting with Jesus and have that awesome sense that He is right there with you – the more you’re being filled with joy. Let’s face it – it’s not always easy. It’s often hard to get to that place. Your capacity for joy might only be shot-glass size. Your capacity might be a gallon! Maybe you can linger there with Jesus for ten minutes or longer. But maybe you are only able to focus for about two minutes, [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY Learning to Experience the Immanuel Moment As we are growing into whole-hearted leaders, and especially as we are maturing in intimacy, we want to have a deeper interactive relationship with Jesus. And that’s why I want us to tap into a powerful inner-healing tool, called the Immanuel Moment, that will take us to special moments of connection and communication with Him. This concept was introduced by Dr. Karl Lehman, a Christian psychiatrist who loves to integrate his personal faith with medical science. Living life with an awareness of the nearness of God directly impacts [...]
