What is ‘Love Your Life’?
A process of walking alongside people who are confused, discouraged and disempowered to help them find courage to grow, faith to approach God, confidence to tackle their issues, a belief in their own worth and peace in their present circumstances.
Why do people need more than a connect session?
Many people lack a basic sense of being – they are not ready to be fathered by God because they have never been mothered (affirmed, accepted and given ownership of their own destiny – to know that it is a good thing that they are alive!!!!) They are not ready to take down the walls between themselves and God because they fear that God will overwhelm them. They sometimes come for prayer but they have strong defenses or even no defenses (they are completely confused and condemned about everything). Sometimes they are furiously trying (and failing) to change everything around them except themselves (the only thing they can change!)
How does the love your life process differ from connect?
The Holy Spirit is able to break into people’s lives at any time and change/empower them through a dramatic encounter with the presence and person of Jesus and connect or re-connect them with their heavenly Father. However, he also seems willing to be the Paraclete – the “counsellor” who walks alongside a person in their current journey. This is a humble, often less directive or prophetic role which gives a huge measure of respect and dignity to the person to walk at their own pace, discover things for themselves and to make their own decisions from a liberated will.
