SORT BY Relevancy
How many individuals with cleft and craniofacial anomalies are told, either directly or indirectly, to "get out of the way" or "I wish you'd never been born?" Maybe a few around the world; maybe a lot. That and many other forms of discounting people for the truly wonderful, kind and compassionate individuals that lie beneath the outer look can lead to isolation. Host Joe Rutland talks about how powerful, toxic and dangerous isolating from people, communities and life can be. He'll discuss the subtle difference between isolation, loneliness and solitude. Also, what does isolation look like to you? This, and much more, will be discussed on this week's "CleftCast."
ISOLATION - LOST INSIDE MYSELF
Hosted by Craig Sicilia
Lost Inside Myself: I know I am not the only one who feels like they’re in a bubble. The bubble of life I can see out of my bubble but i am imprisoned inside of it. Sentenced to watch life happen but cannot touch it, only watch it pass us by.
As well no one can get inside our bubble. Maybe we are all waiting for a bubble master, someone who can get inside the bubble with us and maybe together we can break a hole in this bubble that has become a prison that keeps us from being an active participant in our own life’s.
Unlike Houdini we are stuck and as the years and decades go by the walls to the bubble get thicker and harder to break free from. Till we become institutionalized to our bubble, which is where our bubble is becomes the only home we know or can remember. We fight to stay inside our bubble.
LET US BREAK FREE FROM OUR BUBBLE'S BEFORE IT'S TO LATE

All temptation begins with a single thought. Whether we realize it or not, we have the ability to choose to ignore tempting thoughts or allow them to remain in our minds. If not kept in check, our temptations can lead to disappointment, failure, rejection, isolation, and a host of other consequences. Perhaps that is why the apostle Paul wisely instructed the Corinthians to bring “every thought captive to the obedience of Christ”. Through the presence of the Holy Spirit within us, we have the ability to screen, select, admit, and cultivate what goes on in our minds. By His power, we can prevent our minds from taking a wrong turn and wandering into evil—but we must choose to focus on what is godly and good

As we enter into festive times with our loved ones and friends let's remember that not everyone has family and friends to connect with. We often take for granted that their is someone to go home too or share a meal with together.
Many people are grieving at this time of year due to loss of a loved one, financial hardship, or just the weather can cause people to feel down, isolated, and depressed. Pride and Fear are two main factors that keep us stuck and bound in isolation and depression. We will discuss ways to get out of a "funk" and how to deal with loneliness during this season and for a lifetime.
Let's talk about what it means to be and the difference between being Lonely, Alone, and Loneliness.
1. Are you feeling overwhelmed from too many commitments, financial hardships, or unrealistic expectations?
2.Are you experiencing frequent headaches, excessive drinking or overeating, or insomnia?
3.Do you find yourself being isolated from friends or co-workers, crying or feeling "down" during this time of the year?
4. Do you feel emotionally isolated and you have family and friends around?
5. Do you dread being alone at this time of the year?
COME GET ON THE COUCH!!!!
Why do Christians act a different way in front of their Pastors than they do anyone else? What is it thatmotivates us to receive their approval? What keeps us "coming to the well" even after they have disgraced the clergy? Why don't Christians "keep it real" with their church leaders?
What are the consequnces of telling the truth, confronting your Pastor and understanding you have the authority to correct his errant behavior?
Bro. Nick and Bro. Frank ya'll done gone too far now! Stay tuned, we goin' IN!
In some countries, there seems to be a belief that hiding children born with cleft lip/cleft palate/craniofacial anomalies is a good thing to do. Whether it stems from cultural shame or an indwelling belief that there is "something wrong" with those of us with anomalies, this type of behavior is dangerous and unhealthy. "CleftCast" host Joe Rutland discusses this and raises some emotional awareness to the possibility that changing this pattern is a worthwhile endeavor. This "CleftCast" #podcast is being done in conjunction with a Google Hangout, so it's being placed in video and #podcast history. Thanks for downloading "CleftCast" at iTunes and Blog Talk Radio. Every minute counts ... and you are loved.
Temptation is something we all face as Christians, no matter how long we have been following Christ. There are a few practical things, however, that we can do to grow stronger and smarter in our struggle against sin.
Strength is found in God’s Word, the Bible. In fact, there’s inherent power in the Word. In John 6:63 (NKJV), Jesus said, “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.”
Meditating on the Word feeds life to your spirit. And when you’re strong enough spiritually, you can do what God wants you to do, no matter what pressure the flesh is putting on you. So whatever the temptation is that you’re facing, be encouraged. You can resist it. You can have the self-control you need, by God’s grace, to say, “I’m going to do what God wants. I’m led by His Spirit and living His great plan for my life!”
