Episode 37-How Insecurities are Ruining Our Relationships--and what to do about it
IMG_1757.JPG

Our insecurities are like a negative lens through which we see our world, ourselves and those we love… they taint our vision of who we truly are.

We know that insecurity feed on lies… Lies are the enemy’s tool to hold us back from our full potential and life in Christ and the devil uses lies to keep us blind.

Blindness is one thing if you know you’re blind… But it’s a whole other problem if you don’t know you’re blind… This is where his deception reaches a new layer… if you don’t know you’re blind, how do you take the steps necessary to receive your sight?

What is the Fight Award and how would I nominate someone?

Questions:
What do you typically eat throughout the day?
—give ideas of a few different ways you could do different meals

Could not imagine getting along with her sister as good as we do. How do we do that & do we ever annoy each other/ what things bother you about each other?

What are macros and why/how do you track them? What is the purpose and benefit?

Hearty/healthy meal ideas for men on the go...

I’m struggling with my quiet time. Summer throws us off our normal routine. I’m definitely feeling disconnected but don’t have the desire to draw closer. Even when I do have the time I don’t know what to do or what to pray. Feeling spiritually empty. How do I get back to feeling his presence and actually wanting to do my quiet time when I just don’t see the need?

Lunch recipes and beefed up meals for men

Summertime Rice Salad
Cook 1 cup rice and 3 hard-boiled eggs. Dice the eggs and also some broccoli, 1 cup tomatoes, 3 small handfuls snow peas, and 3 servings chicken (canned, breasts or rotisserie). Mix all together and add ¾ cup corn, 1 T. olive oil, 1 T. red wine vinegar s & p and divide into 3 servings. Have 1 serving on a bed of greens.

One pot chicken & rice

Sauté 2 pounds chicken diced with a little OO & 2 carrots, 3 celery, 4 garlics & 1 onion chopped until cooked through. Turn heat to high & add 2 cups low sodium chicken broth & 1 1/2 cups rice. When boiling turn to simmer for 15-20 minutes until rice is done. Stir in 1/2 cup grated Parmesan. 

Mediterranean Salad
Large green salad (spring mix, box mix make it easy!)
1 hard boiled egg
½ cup cooked bulgar
Sprinkle of parmesan or feta (optional), banana peppers, a few greek olives, red peppers, red onion, English cucumbers, protein of choice, 
Fat free vinaigrette or a little olive oil and vinegar with italian seasoing, s & p


Protein ooey-gooey mug cake
This is something that helps me combat my desire for dessert.
I mix 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 Tablespoons Cocoa powder, 2 T. Almond milk, 3 T. Egg whites with one scoop of protein powder. Whisk & put in a mug. Microwave for 30-50 seconds (start low - you want it to look gooey in the middle - it's super disgusting if dry!) Sometimes I top with a T. nut butter.

Episode 34-What Feelings of Rejection Tell Us...
IMG_1480.JPG

In this episode, we finish our review of the book Victory Over the Darkness, by Neil T. Anderson. For more information visit www.axispodcast.com

Thoughts and feelings of rejection that often plague us can be major deterrents to our maturity in Christ. Apart from Christ, we all learned early in life to respond to rejection by taking one of three defensive postures. 

First is beat the system (can be anything from family church society, in general,) this person beats the system and learns to compete to get ahead and become the significant other. Eventually result in more rejection because the ability to perform eventually diminishes The emotional effects of beating the system includes: the inability to express feelings, emotional insulation perfectionism, worries.
Attitudes in reactions toward God for this person refuses to come under the authority of God and have little real fellowship with God. 

The second defensive posture is to give into the system. This person continues to satisfy others but begins to believe that he or she is rejectable and unlovable.  The emotional results of someone who gives into the system are feelings of worthlessness and inferiority, subjectivity, introspection, and self-condemnation. The attitudes are reactions toward God for someone who gives into the system or projects their earthly Father's behavior onto God and unable to trust God. 

Third defensive posture is rebelling against system. This person fights the system and says "I don’t need or want your love," and often behaves or dresses in an objectionable way. This results in more rejection because a rebel causes others to be more defensive of the system the rebel rejects, emotional results are wishing he or she had never been born, undisciplined,  irresponsibility, self-hatred and bitterness.
Attitudes and reactions toward God —they view God as a tyrant and rebel against him.
