Show Notes

We are continuing the conversation this week with part 2 of the Critical Journey, where we discuss the next three phases we all experience in our journey with the Lord, moving toward a place of absolute being, and filled with the Father’s love.

1.      The Converted life – we become very aware of God and yield our life to his control.

2.      The Disciples life - Very hungry with the things of god. Necessary to understand an understanding to walk with God.

3.      The Productive life – we take the information we learned in phase 2 and begin to put it to work in serving the lord. The danger is an addiction to success, which eventually leads us to hitting the “wall.”

Phases 4-6

4. The Journey Inward - Moving from doing to being and letting go of the idea of “success” – complete surrender.

5. The Journey Outward - A renewed sense of calling and an integration of soul and role. Content with a more hidden life.

6. The life of Love - Deep, vibrant inner life that embraces your true self.
