Getting Real with the Enneagram

Getting Real with the Enneagram

The genius of the Enneagram is that it clearly called out my false self, which is not divine, but distorted, so I can do something about it. Now I can see a lifetime of ego, pride, fear and striving as the source of wicked anxiety. Of course I’ve been resisting it. The false self I didn’t know I had is fighting for its life.

My soul however, the part Jesus owns, stirs at the possibility of redemption and proper expression of the me he created. Wow. What will that look like?

See, you have a destiny on your life and until you get busy doing that thing you were created to do, and loving a bunch of people along the way, your rut will only get narrower and deeper. It’s not about chasing happiness, it’s about living in your good purpose.

“But what do I do? I’ve tried everything and nothing changes,” you moan. 

We get it. We’ve been there, but we got out.

The reality is, I'm going to be too much for some people and situations. So what? That doesn't change my allegiance to Jesus or my identity as His beloved daughter.

Come what may, I'm just going to trust him to lead me right where I need to be.

Intermissionary Lessons Part One - Love & The Invasive Question

It takes discipline to believe you are complete, loved, clean and royal. It's a choice that will make you look weird because the world doesn't think like that, and it will shame you for attempting to live like you do.

But do it anyway, and watch your life change.

That's why I don't care anymore if people think I say weird things in conversation. It's fine. I do. If you are a follower of Jesus and you tell me you are racked with guilt, I'm going to ask some questions about that.

Notes from the French Alps - Intermissionary

Notes from the French Alps - Intermissionary

The Apostle Paul told the Romans that the invisible nature of God was discernible to us in and through the things He created. Like mountains, green meadows, waterfalls and forests. 

So if you are trying to reset your connection to God, or understand who He is in the first place, why not head somewhere like Chamonix, France like 18 of us are for the next two weeks?
