“I CARE ABOUT YOUR SOUL, SPIRIT, BODY, RELATIONSHIPS, YOUR DREAMS AND YOUR DESTINY.” DANNY SILK (YOU VERSION DEVO)

2 CORINTHIANS 3:17-18 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. 18 And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.

RARELY, DO WE MAKE DISTANCE THE GOAL OF OUR RELATIONSHIPS                                                        WHEN WE AREN’T ON PRACTICING ON PURPOSE -- WE DRIFT

DISTANCE IS DISCONNECTION

THREE NATURAL REACTIONS TO PAIN                                                                                        FIGHT - FLIGHT - FREEZE                                                                                                                       ALL OF THESE REACTIONS HAVE THE SAME GOAL - DISTANCE

HOW WILL YOU REACT WHEN PAIN COMES?

FEAR BASED CONTROL TEACHES THAT ONLY ONE PERSON AT A TIME GETS TO BE POWERFUL

POWER IS NOT CONTROL

 SUPERNATURAL - RESPONSE > REACTION

    POWERFUL PEOPLE DON’T REACT - THEY RESPOND

RESPONSE DOES NOT COME NATURALLY

POWERFUL PEOPLE ARE NOT SLAVES TO INSTINCT

    POWERFUL PEOPLE DON’T DO WHAT COMES NATURAL OR NORMAL

        POWERFUL PEOPLE ARE EXTRAORDINARY

POWERFUL PEOPLE RESOND WITH LOVE IN THE FACE OF PAIN AND FEAR

    “RESPONSE-ABILITY” (NOT REACT-ABILITY)

RESPONSE IS LEARNED SKILL - REACTION IS INSTINCT (UNLEARNED)

POWER IS A CHOICE

FROM THE BEGINNING GOD’S PLAN FOR US IS TO BE EMPOWERED TO FIND FREEDOM THRU CHOICE    

GOD RISKED REJECTION BY GIVING YOU CHOICE

GOD’S #1 GOAL IS CONNECTION WITH YOU

    NOTHING - EVEN PAIN AND DEATH - WOULD STOP HIM

“THE MORE GOD FILLS YOUR LIFE, THE MORE FREEDOM YOU HAVE"

2 CORINTHIANS 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

JOHN 14:12 “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.
