POD #5: A bias toward pronoia

Confirmation bias is a cognitive shortcut we all take, all of us humans, wherein we interpret the evidence and facts of our world to confirm our pre-existing hypotheses.  In other words, we find evidence to confirm what we already believe. In other words, if you believe the world is out to get you, or the... Continue Reading →

POD #3: Your intentional vacuum

What are you feeling ready to give up in order to create an intentional vacuum of space for fresh, new life: . . . in your heart? . . . in your mind? . . . in your calendar? . . . and in your home? Don’t push yourself till it hurts; be gentle and... Continue Reading →

POD #4: The Lies We Tell (Ourselves)

These are pretty innocuous examples, but they surface some interesting questions you can take as lightly or as deeply as you’d like: What are you telling yourself, about yourself, that’s just not true? What aren’t you giving yourself credit for? What do you think you want to be or do or have—physically, spiritually or even... Continue Reading →

POD #2: Your Positive Essential Quality

At this point of my life, my most Positive Essential Quality is energy: a soul-deep, love-driven, overflowing energy to care for the people and create the projects that matter to me—the projects I know I’m here to do. The other day, my Lyft driver figured me out in a 30 minute ride. He said: “I’m... Continue Reading →

POD #1: Altitude training

BEFORE you took this Challenge, when was the last time you trained at altitude—diving into something that stretched you beyond what you’d ever done or felt before, or stepping out toward a dream without the perfect resources or plan in place? How did it go? Describe the adventure. What new superpowers did you develop in... Continue Reading →

Democratic Kingdom

I have been a believer for the majority of my life. Yet if I am honest with myself, I haven't really let God be the King in my life. I have preferred to allow Him to be more of a democratic leader where if He agreed with my thinking, I could submit. I have allowed... Continue Reading →

It’s not what it looks like

My struggle is real. If we are all honest, it is real for each and every one of us. I tend to keep my struggle quiet. Usually, it is silent. That is, until it erupts like a volcano spewing out molten ash burning everything in its path.  Over the years, the eruptions have grown farther... Continue Reading →

Representations of denial

And Simon Peter followed Jesus, and so did another disciple. Now that disciple was known to the high priest, and went with Jesus into the courtyard of the high priest. But Peter stood at the door outside. Then the other disciple, who was known to the high priest, went out and spoke to her who... Continue Reading →

Windows to my soul

One of my friends called me out on something this past week.  I know that it was needed, and I received what she had to share.  I had been hearing that quiet inner voice telling me to stop making excuses.  She was just a confirmation of what the Holy Spirit was already speaking to me. ...

As I was in praise and worship today, I kept seeing a picture of blinds, like mini blinds in a window.  Just a little bit of light was shining through the closed blinds.  I started thinking about how much we try to hide from God, both of our self and in knowing Him more fully....
