This week our friend John David Vasquez joins us to discuss the Heart of David Movement here in Austin, TX and all things worship.  Interested in some helpful tips on connecting with God throughout the week or how you can lead worship without playing an instrument or even singing?  Give this episode a listen!


 After viewing “The Heart of Man” Jimmy and Rachel discuss shame, isolation, and moving towards wholeness and victory.  

Do you hide from God and others when you sin or do you live in the light, willing to be seen?
Trust God with your process.
Galatians 3:3 - don’t try to do it in your strength...
Commit to ‘living in the light’.  
Ephesians 5:8-14 
1 John 1:5-7 “
Living in the light is refusing to hide anything from God.  When something happens, take responsibility, deal with it and move on.  Also notice that when we live in the light God says we have fellowship - true fellowship with each other.  
In your marriage - if you want true INTIMACY (into-me-you-see) you have to commit to the risky business of honesty. 
With your kids  - I make sure that I confess to my kids when I’m in the wrong.
Know that you aren’t alone
1 Corinthians 10:13 
Hebrews 2:17-18  
Shame get OFF me in Jesus’ name.  Every lie that is keeping me bound must be exposed in the name of Jesus.  I choose to step into the light.  I refuse darkness and hiding because it’s just a trap.  I turn now from every form of sin that is producing death in me.  I embrace the call of my Father to be seen and be loved unconditionally.  I choose to surrender and experience God’s rule in my life in greater measure by faith.

We all need activities or habits in our lives that fill us up and we need to be intentional about it because on one else will do it for us!

Ecclesiastes 3:11
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Psalm 62:5-6
Truly my soul finds rest in God; my salvation comes from him.

John 17:3
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.

“Man has a purpose to be in a relationship with God. When he forgets his purpose he forgets who he is and what life means.”  Francis Shaffer

Outside of Jesus we won’t be satisfied!  He has also created ways to connect with us doing the things we love.  

What fuels you?  Being outdoors?  Creating?  Exercise?

Fill up on things that actually satisfy.

Ephesians 5:18
“And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit,”
If you want to find out what fuels you do a self study and observe the times you feel ‘full’ or ‘drained’.  Ask the Holy Spirit to help illuminate the ways God has wired you to feel alive.

Jessica - Episode - "Breaking Free From Lies"

The Purge - Episode - "Soaking Prayer"

Natural disasters happen all the time and the questions get brought up after each one.  Is God using this to punish people?  How could God create a world where terrible things like that happen?  We will dive into those questions by discussing God's relationship with nature and humanities role in creation and how God is going to redeem the entire universe!

Get Back Up

Episode 20!  Jimmy and Rachel celebrate by laughing a lot.  I mean, a lot.  School starts, date night, extra toasty cheezits and chumbawamba.  They also talk about recovering from failure, “No matter how many times you trip them up, God-loyal people don't stay down long; Soon they're up on their feet, while the wicked end up flat on their faces.” Proverbs 24:16.


Soaking Prayer

It’s the purge!! This week Rachel was purging the house of all of the unwanted stuff while Jimmy had camp week.  Also Rachel started her sabbatical.  Soaking is a way of praying where we can rest in God's presence and let him do what he wants to do in our hearts and souls.  We talk about the benefits of soaking prayer and the ways that we soak.
