We hope this becomes a dependency. Strange thing for a therapist to say. But we are dependent on God for life and peace and joy. Spending time with Him every day (imagining these vignettes) will enhance your life and growth as nothing else can.


Misinformation about God is rampant out there today. This is good stuff--agreeing with the best interpretation you can put on Scripture.


  Below, Love's Playbook, Arla's new series, is the first interpretive version of the Bible -- it's God's love story like you've never read it--written to keep you reading! (Images are Amazon linked )

Jesus chose men of natural talent, who weren't full of tradition and false self or false theories, as his followers. Jesus could teach them because they were teachable and open-minded.

He wasn't against education. When controlled by love, intellect is a blessing. But the educated in his time and culture were generally so self-focused and bigoted, they couldn't be taught.

Education is more than knowledge; it is the connection of mind with mind transferring impulses--vital energy. Jesus' heart inspires hearts. What privilege to be in Jesus' presence daily for three years!

John, "the disciple Jesus loved", or literally: "the disciple Jesus kept on loving" (at John's amazement)* gave himself, more than the others, to the influence and love of Jesus. But all of them grew like Him. Everyone could see that these fishermen had been with Jesus.

In the same way, if you deny yourself limiting beliefs, and invite the working of His Spirit, submitting to the necessary discipline without complaining, God will teach you.

He longs to show us His love. We only have to remove the distractions. Our helplessness, weakness, reactivity, and fear can become His strength and beauty. Our controlling, my-way attitudes can become teachable. There are no limits for one who puts aside his own agenda and continually opens himself to the Holy Spirit.

Through constant contact, turning to Him again and again, you will have broader perspectives, better-balanced thinking, and clearer perceptions.

The highest education is the one obtained in Jesus' presence. If you want to enroll, He will come to you.
