the importance of connection - backview of parent holding child

04 Oct The Importance of Connection

Technology seems to be taking over all areas of life, including connecting with people. A decade ago you would go into a coffee shop or airport and see people talking to each other, reading a book, or casually sitting and watching the world go by. Now, everyone is glued to a computer or their phones. In some ways, technology is great. It allows us to stay current with our faraway loved ones and keeps us connected to what is going on in the world. On the other hand, technology can be very damaging and create barriers to connection. It is partially creating a younger generation that struggles with interpersonal connection if technology is not included. Being so caught up in technology can sometimes prevent people from having true and intimate connection with God. Agave Sozo enjoys seeing people become empowered in who they are and gaining deeper freedom in Christ...

How Your View of God Affects Your Life - man looking up

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. Hope causes your heart to overflow with a deeper sense of peace and joy in situations that seem impossible. Hope transforms lives. We know the power of hope and we would love for you to experience it yourself. Take time to ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with His hope as you taken in the following Scriptures. “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.’” -Jeremiah 29:11 “The Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” -Psalm 147:11 “Hope deferred makes the heart...

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...

living an abundant life - bright flowers in a field

20 Jun Living an Abundant Life

At Agave Sozo, located in Gilbert Arizona, we believe it’s possible to live an abundant life. We’re convinced it is a reality available for each and every one of us. As you ponder negative circumstances in your life, have you ever thought, “This is my lot in life and I just have to accept it?” Or, perhaps you’ve wondered, “Is this the best God has for me?” If you’ve shared these kinds of thoughts with well-meaning people around you, they may have responded to your honest comments with messages like, “Buck up,” or, “Be grateful for what you have,” or, “Stop complaining.” To a degree, they’re right; we can always find something to be grateful for, but denying or overlooking the struggles we face does nothing to bring us into the abundant life God desires for us. What is an Abundant Life? Merriam Webster dictionary defines abundant as: amply supplied, or...

09 Jun When Faith is Hard

In your spiritual journey, you may have experienced seasons where your faith was strong and seasons where it felt weak. At Agave Sozo in Chandler, we believe time spent in God’s Word, meditating on its meaning and implications for our lives, is an invaluable tool to cultivating a deeper relationship with God. Contemplating the Word regularly will strengthen our faith. What Does the Bible Have to Say About Faith? The bible has a lot to say about faith! It’s basically on every page you turn. But one verse that describes faith succinctly is Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” As this verse says, faith involves confidence and hope for something we do not see. Another verse that speaks about this concept is found in 2 Corinthians 5:7, “For we live by faith, not by sight.” What Happens...
