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 [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY The Fastest Way to Access Your Joy Connection It’s not good for us to be alone. God decided that at creation. God created us to be in relationship with one another, and especially with Him. We must have people in our lives to be whole, and we have to be in a relationship of intimacy with Him. What helps to build a whole heart? You don’t have to have five hundred best friends, but you need two or three people who are close to you. Now, people come and go in our relationships. [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY What Does Brain Science Tell Us about Relationship? We are all hungry for relationship. We are wired for it. This part makes me excited! Brain science tells us that we are wired for connection. We require it. Did you know that if you don’t hold a baby it will not thrive? It needs touch. It also needs to make eye contact with its mother. It needs touch, it needs eye contact, it needs smell – all the senses. All our senses are so powerful because they’re not just natural – they are supernatural. [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY Friends of God Why does the enemy want to destroy our identity? He hates our image because our identity is rooted in God. Did you know that we’re not meant to have shame? In our true identity, we’re to have confidence. Think about Jesus. He was confident! He wasn’t arrogant, but He was confident. He knew who He was as the Son of God. He knew the goodness of God, and He knew the heart of the Father. That’s what we’re restoring – our God-given identity. That’s what Jesus restored on the cross and [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY When Intimacy Was Severed in the Garden Let’s rewind back to the Garden of Eden – to Adam and Eve. They were created for intimacy. They were created to walk naked with the Lord in the garden. No shame existed, no shame at all. They walked freely, naked in the garden, full of joy and full of the Lord’s presence. They knew who God was. They knew who they were in Him and how they were made for one another. Adam got to name all the animals. He didn’t just give them titles. He [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY The Inner Circle God loves us all unconditionally. And yet, our Lord Jesus when He walked the earth had levels of intimacy. Jesus’ inner circles Jesus was surrounded by hordes of people, but He had a smaller, more intimate ring of men and women. They traveled with Him and received teachings and prophesies Jesus did not share with the masses. They saw miracles (like walking on water and calming the storm) that others did not see. Jesus chose the twelve apostles, giving them authority over unclean spirits and to heal every disease and [...]
THE WHOLE-HEARTED LEADER PILLAR 2: INTIMACY Understanding Intimacy and its Importance How do we grow in our intimacy with God, so that we also grow in intimacy with one another– especially our loved ones? In this second pillar of the Whole-hearted Leader series, we’re going to learn how brain science helps prove that our joyful connection is vitally important. We’ll also learn about how we connect – not just mentally, but emotionally and spiritually. We’re going to learn how to experience the Emmanuel Moment, a great first step to inner healing, to wholeness of heart, and to be able to [...]
