    John Carver Show - Marital Expectations (Andy Stanley)

    in Self Help

    Andy Stanley has a way of sharing insights on so many subjects.  This talk on marriage is no different.  In this talk he shares:


    New husbands and wives and dreams and goals for their marriage, what roles they will fill, they desire a great marriage even what the wife wears to bed.


    There are financial goals...all these desires have "I" in common.  Every bride and groom walk down the aisle with a box of desires.


    Once the marriage happens, and without really knowing what's happening, married people take all their history and expectations on their new spouse.  Good desires become expectations.  That kind of pressure can be dangerous to a marriage.  They dynamic, instantly, changes because there are two big "I's" in the marriage.


    Selfishness, in a marriage, can destory expectations and can erode trust.


    In some marriage the "dominant" spouse thinks they're in control.


    It's very easy, for me, to be me.  It is very easy for you to be you.


    Conforming to someone else's expectations is very stressful.  We are individuals.


    Some marriages are based on compromise.  It goes good for a while then it starts to implode.


    Your focus of your attention has to be about each other.  


    When you settle in to compromise the marriage is an "I" marriage.


    Discontent can destroy what brought you and your spouse together.


    A desire migrated into an expectation where you say "You owe me" then romance suffers greatly.

    John Carver Show - Why Not Learn To Pray? (Andy Stanley)

    in Prayer

    You probably don’t remember the first prayer you prayed in your life.


    Most prayers are about asking for stuff.  Is there more to it than focusing on me?


    All people, who pray, run against God NOT doing what God should do.


    We don’t know why things don’t work out.  If we are honest, sometimes, prayer is like a “good luck charm” for some people.


    God seems to answer the weirdest prayers and ignores many of the serious ones.  God doesn’t seem to make sense.


    It would be nice if we can figure out the “code” to get our prayers answered.


    What if the point of prayer is NOT about getting stuff?


    Jesus actually taught people how to pray.  Just because you’ve been praying all your life doesn’t mean you understand it.


    Jesus said, “Don’t pray like the hypocrites do.”


    It seems location was important to Jesus when people prayed.  Jesus didn’t have respect for people who prayed, in public, to be seen.


    Jesus said don’t pray to be seen.  He says to pray in private.  The connection comes when you pray at one place…alone with you and God.


    Jesus says that God sees what we do in secret (pray) and it will be rewarded.  This is a foundational principle that Jesus taught about prayer.


    The God who sees you in secret will reward you!!  


    God doesn’t get impressed by the quality or quantity of your words.  God is NOT moved by such things.


    Prayer can be so simple and so heartfelt.  It’s not about how long you pray or the “floweree” words.  The pressure is off.

    John Carver Show - Make Your Minutes Count (Andy Stanley)

    in Self Help

    Andy talks about prayer in this broadcast and talks about the differences in prayers.  Isn’t prayer just talking to God?  So what is important when we pray? Is it the words we use? What about the place or the time? As we examine the words of Jesus in Matthew 6, we are often surprised at the answers. God wants us to connect to him in a growing, living relationship, and this requires us to take actions we may not have considered before.Jesus launches into a discussion on prayer. 


    Could it be that there is more to prayer than we thought? Two thousand years ago, Jesus pulled his disciples aside and taught them to pray. In examining his instructions, we find a disconnect between his teaching and the way we typically approach prayer. We discover that there are some things about prayer we think are important but aren't; and there are some things we don't think are important that are.


    Perhaps prayer is not about getting what you want for your life.

    John Carver Show - Andy Stanley - Appetites

    in Self Help

    Andy Stanley talks about OUR APPETITES. Things that can RUIN our life and make us miserable, if we DO NOT control them. Charles Andrew "Andy" Stanley is the senior pastor of North Point Community Church


    Andy Stanley says: "I want to talk about the internal tension that all of us carry that’s associated with our
    appetites. It’s an internal tension that we carry because we all want MORE. The only
    word for the “appetites” in your vocabulary is MORE. When we talk about appetites, we
    immediately think about food or hunger, but there are a lot of appetites. There’s food and
    sex and….I’m sure there are a lot more. For me, I’m just looking through the lens of a
    guy because that’s all I’ve really been, but for you ladies who a trying to figure men out,
    they only have three appetites: food, sex and sleep. Just kidding. God has designed us in
    such a way that we are really just a big bundle of appetites and desires. And appetites also
    include security, and appetite for love, an appetite to be respected, to be cherished, to feel
    successful...All these things God designed us with, but each one of our appetites creates
    tension. The reason you feel tension in your life, is because one or more of your appetites
    are clamoring for MORE.


    1. All of us in leadership have an appetite for progress. We want to see our churches
    or companies move forward.
    2. We have an appetite for greater responsibility. You probably wish you had more
    responsibility, but here’s the interesting thing. Every time you get more
    responsibility in your organization, what do you want? MORE!
    3. We want respect-recognition for what we’ve accomplished.

    John Carver Show - Love, Sex and Dating (Andy Stanley)

    in Self Help

    If you've listened to my shows long enough you know that I've stood on the shoulders of giants and learned so much from so many people.  Andy Stanley is one of those giants.  In the introduction to his series he writes, "When I meet the right person, everything will be all right. This way of thinking creates trouble in our dating lives and sets us up for trouble in marriage. In this message, Andy challenges us to ask ourselves Am I the person the person I'm looking for is looking for? And he previews God's list of behaviors that will lead to success in dating and marriage."


    This show will give you some things to think about in your own relationships.


    Feel free to get more information on the subject at Andy's website http://northpoint.org/messages/the-new-rules-for-love-sex-and-dating

    John Carver Show - Staying in Love by Andy Stanley

    in Self Help

    Pastor Andy Stanley is the son of Baptist Pastor Charles Stanley.  Andy has a style of teaching very different from his Dad.


    We all know what's required to fall in love. A pulse. Falling in love is easy. But staying there? That's something else entirely. With more than 1,500 matchmaker organizations in the United States, finding someone is easier than ever, but staying together seems to get more difficult every day. So. . . is it possible for two people to fall in love and actually stay there? Absolutely.
