Renewing Mind, sozo

21 Sep Renewing The Mind

On a daily basis, the world bombards us with messages telling us what we should look like, how we should act, and what we should think. Videos, tv shows, and magazines at the check-out line all inundate us with negative messages making us feel that we don’t “measure up.”  Guarding our minds is imperative for a powerful, positive life. At Agave Sozo, serving Chandler, Phoenix, Gilbert, Mesa, Scottsdale, we recognize the power of a renewed mind and the effect that the constantly invading negative messages can have on it.  How do these negative messages affect us, and what does it mean to renew our mind? Let’s have a look. What God Says One of the Bible's key passages discussing "mind health" and how it's important to God is Romans 12:2 (NKJV). "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what...

07 Sep How Your View of God Affects Your Life

Agave Sozo is an inner healing prayer ministry seeking to serve those struggling with depression, sadness, pain, and other issues in the Chandler, Gilbert, and Phoenix areas. If you ask people who God is to them, you may get many different answers. A person’s perception of God can vary depending on their religious beliefs and personal experience. We may never know all there is to know about God, but we can certainly grow in our understanding of Him. Your view of God affects your life and your experience of Him.  Agave Sozo believes that the truth will set you free. Who is God? Who is God?  Traditionally, many of us have grown up with a view of God that is not necessarily Biblical. For example, we might believe He is angry, distant or quick to judge.  The wonderful news is that God is the very opposite. He is eternally loving, kind, patient and...

23 Aug Scripture Meditation: Hope

When difficult circumstances come your way, do you feel that they steal your hope? Does hope feel out of reach? At Agave Sozo, (serving Phoenix, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa), we believe that hope is something that radically changes lives.

07 Jul Changing Our Negative Self Talk

We are not born with a negative view of ourselves. Negative self-perceptions develop as we encounter pain, neglect, rejection, or hurtful words. These and other unhealthy interactions with the human beings in our lives can cause us to begin hiding certain aspects of who we are, for fear that others might not accept us if we were to truly be ourselves. Another reaction to experiencing pain as we interact with people is to dislike ourselves. When we believe we’re the problem, it can cause us to decide not to “show up” in life. Agave Sozo (serving Phoenix, Chandler, and Gilbert) understands how negative experiences can affect a person’s self-perception. We’re a powerful inner healing prayer ministry that seeks to set people free to truly embrace who they were created to be and to live abundantly. Read on if you’d like to know more. Inner Messages Have you ever reflected on the...
