Fresh update on "joanna" discussed on Filmspotting
"Memories flood back in this place. Quietly in the evening through the building and on the grounds hello. And I suppose it is a way of staying in touch. That's from the trailer for Joanna hogg's the eternal daughter, hog the director of the souvenir and the souvenir part two, a pair of acclaimed films in which she looked back at her own life as a young film student. Those movies starred on her swinton burn as the hog stand in Julie. Byrne is the daughter of Tilda Swinton, who played Julie's mother, rosalyn. I hope you're keeping up with all this in those films. And now here we have hogs eternal daughter, which stars swinton as the adult Julie and as her elderly mother, but it's also kind of a ghost story. Josh, what's your take on the eternal daughter? I would, especially for those who have not seen this souvenir or the souvenir part two, just say yes, it's a ghost story. And not get worried about all that other stuff, because you really don't need to know it. This stands on its own, even though it's cemented for me that hog is really at the top of the line for filmmakers who know how to do personal cinema in a way that I at least find incredibly arresting. There is the risk of the naval gazing sentimentality with this subgenre. And hog wants nothing to do with that. There is such self laceration is too much of a strong term to say what she's doing here. But there's something of maybe like a scab scratching honesty that she has about not only her past or her experiences, but where she is right now in this moment thinking about it and ruminating on it. And processing it. It's almost like all those things are happening at once. And just as when you're arguing with yourself about your past and your memories, you don't try to paint a pretty picture. You're really wrestling with yes, some of the good things, but also the bad things and making sense of it all. That's what hogg is doing on screen. And what made for me the eternal daughter to be particularly interesting is that there is this genre element where you have this mother and daughter at this apparently empty English estate turned hotel that there's strange lighting. There's fog all day and all night. There are noises going on and they wonder if they're alone. They're in a purgatory, essentially. It's almost more of a purgatorial experience than a ghost story. And we can have some fun puzzling it out, even as the central relationship between these two is what the heart of this story is. So it's not a ghost story like a boo ghost story, but it has some of those formal elements that add a level of interest. That's different from the souvenir films. But it's really, again, about a Joanna hogg stand in wrestling doing some interior, deep wrestling about her past and how it's led to where she is and giving us a peek at it. Yeah. The story here is swinton as daughter and mother, arriving at what I think is a Welsh estate that the mother had lived in as a child. And the sense is that they're trying to spend some time together, especially as the mother is getting up in years. But the daughter also has, I won't say nefarious intentions, though she as a filmmaker does some things or exhibit certain behavior that might suggest even she feels that way about what she's about to be engaged in. But she's there to also mine her own past in her mother's past. I should say, specifically, for material. She's making a film. So we're right in lockstep here with the fable ones. We're keeping the self reflexivity theme going. We've got filmmaker kids haunted by their parents. I do think it is a really good companion in some ways a counter to Spielberg's film and that we see Spielberg as the author going through his past in his traumas and rendering it on screen in a way that he doesn't seem to have any guilt about or any real conflict about. That's there for the taking. And as I was alluding to earlier, one of the most fascinating elements of this film is the way we see Julie getting out that tape recorder. You know, she's got her phone out and she's recording things her mother is saying. And she's doing it on the slide. Yeah, that's the nefarious part. That is, right? She doesn't want her mother to know. You do as a filmmaker as an autobiographical filmmaker, you have to be a bit of a thief. You have to be willing to steal and to transform some of these stories. And again, I think that's one of the things this movie wants to really wrestle with and ask the question, not is it ethical in the sense that she's taking stories from someone else as if she heard something and is now actually stealing it and owes somebody something. It's not that. It's about the messiness of the relationship that she has with her mother, the way she as an artist seems incapable of maybe producing her own art that can be separate from who she is as a daughter can be separate from who she is as a daughter to this mother. And so she's relying on her as an artist in a way that maybe she has a little bit of guilt about. And of course, maybe Joanna hogg then is the filmmaker, as the author shares some of that guilt and wants to explore that here through these characters. So how did it work for you to have swinton playing both of them? Because it's a bold stroke. I mean, in a lot of ways, the souvenir part two especially was experimental towards the end with its meta textual use of images and movies within movies and all that stuff. The eternal daughter is a little more straightforward, though it does have some aesthetic elements that are striking, rooted again in the ghost genre, but otherwise the boldest formal choice is to have till the swinton play both of these roles. So was it effective for you? Yeah, it ended up being effective for me. And that's because early on, I did find it a bit distracting in a way that I assumed anyway, it wasn't supposed to be. It was clearly an approach that hogg took, whether out of practicality, yet I'm giving you my mindset as the film is opening and I'm seeing these shots and I'm recognizing that, oh, they're never going to try to fool us that she's not playing both roles. We're always going to see her as the daughter or mother in a single shot. If they're talking to each other, they're going to cross cut between them. We're never going to fake it and have another actress or a stand in playing one of the roles. Not even over the shoulder type shots. It's always single shots. And it was a little bit distracting at first, and it seemed a little bit disconnected. And I'm sitting there as a viewer, not paying attention so much to the story or the characters. I'm thinking about this in this choice. And is this actually a DIY kind of a thing? Whether it was out of budgetary needs or something else where hog really wanted to be deliberate about this choice. And even perhaps call attention to it. And as the

"Imaginations. Willow is now streaming only on Disney+. Welcome to film spotting. As we record this, Josh, it's not quite December yet, but it will be when the show airs, which means that we are entering the season of fever, shall watching movies in time to complete our Chicago Film Critics Association ballots, were you able to use the long Thanksgiving weekend to catch up on some movies to get some of that homework done or are you going to be scrambling like I am? Well, I'll be scrambling. I was a bad, bad, critic, Adam, did not watch a single title over the break. My only excuse is we were traveling without to New York City to have Thanksgiving, where daughter is going to school, friends who live nearby, second year we've been able to do that. It's a very fun trip. So yeah, we were hanging out with people. We were going to the museum of natural history, hit the Museum of Modern Art, what else did we do? We think the last two floats in the Macy's parade. We were a little late on that one. So we were very much out and about not a lot of time to watch movies. So I got a buckle down here in the next week or so. All right, so maybe not a good critic, but good dad and husband. You chose family over art, Josh this week. I tried. Later in the show, we'll report on some of the watching. Josh got done prior to Thanksgiving break thoughts on Joanna hogg's the eternal daughter with Tilda Swinton in a dual role. First though, we did want to take a moment to ask for a little bit of help. No heavy lifting here, just some help spreading the word about the show. We see the stats all the time. Josh more people are listening to podcasts than ever before. We still are always seeking new listeners, even a show that's been around as long as ours has needs to continue to grow. And the best way for that to happen is for people to get a recommendation, a personal recommendation from a friend or family member. So we've just got a simple request this week. Tell somebody about film spotting. Or take another stop, hey, do both. Tell somebody about film spotting. And then just take a second to rate or review us on Apple podcasts. That's where the bulk of our listeners still come from. Really a sentence or two about what you've appreciated about the show and then that star rating. It does help quite a bit. It does. And we do want to thank some folks who followed up on my request last week, Josh, and took the time to go over to Apple podcasts. And give us a positive rating and share some kind words. Hazy L, I'm going to go with Jason Hensley, our friend Bianca. In New York City, plus someone who said they prefer to be unnamed. That's fine. You don't have to leave your real name over on Apple podcasts just leave us a real sentiment. Josh. And that's what we got. Thank you to everyone who did that. And now Josh, on with the show. Well, Adam, anytime we get to talk Spielberg,

And when I was reading your bio, I thought it was interesting. It said, Joanna's work has been seen in the pages of Vogue, L, whatever, and I just thought, that's a description you would usually reserve for makeup artists or hairstylists. So I think that just speaks to the visible transformation that you can provide and why you are sort of that last step before the red carpet and all of that. I want to talk about, you know, I know you have a mantra in terms of how you approach skin and it's respect support and protect. And that all makes sense. That's pretty self explanatory.

How the 'Right to Repair' Could Expand Choices and Lower Costs
"Have you ever broken one of your devices. Maybe dropped your cell phone in smashed screen or spilled a glass of water across your laptop and watched as the machine became no more than a paperweight. The options for repairing your devices in these kinds of situations can be pretty limited. Take it back to the company. Bought it from pay them to fix it or bring it to an authorized repair service. Sometimes the cost of those repairs can be so high. It's often worth just buying a whole new device but various proposed right to repair laws and even an executive order could address that by making it easier for small independent repair shops to fix our devices often at a lower cost or senior personal tech columnist.

Interview With Dr. Joanna Bryson of the Hertie School
"John able to catch up today. And i know we're going to be speaking about the future of human experience when it comes to the evolution of ai. I've liked to win this series. Start with where things are starting to roll forward already today. In different experts have different opinions. You have very unique of your own. I know you can think longer term but when you think about a as of now in terms of how it's altering how we live. What normal is what do you think of the most significant bits. They're already i'm first of all. I'm really glad that you asked that a lot of people. Think of as something. That's a future thing that might or might not happen whereas artificial intelligence of software techniques that we've had for decades and so it really is important but we're talking about the distant future to think about while japan what you mean Passed so we really do have to look at the last fifty years on how we've been altered already by digital technology. Now one of the tricks you may have noticed just slide. It sideways into digital technology from a and that's because a lot of the conversations that definitions the arguments people get into around the term. Ai so if what you mean by a i is something. That's exactly like a person than i would. Basically argued at length with us that you will never have that exactly traduced but something. That isn't a person you know a lot of what it is to be. Human is the set of constraints that we have as apes right. And that alters how can learn what we can proceed what actions were capable of some time rate at which able to respond since like that. Okay so you're not gonna get that something that you On is just not like that. But if what you mean what i mean when i talk about artificial intelligence as the subset of all intelligent things which somebody's made intentionally right. It's an artifact so talents modified artifacts not not not rocket science. But you'd be surprised. How much will argue with that.
"joanna" Discussed on Just a Tip with Megan Batoon
"Welcome to another episode of just a tip. The podcast it's equally about. Its tangents as it is about. It's tips today is such a treat because my co-host from the new network show the world's most amazing vacation rentals is here. Miss joanna franko. I'm so excited because every time we get together. It is such incredible energy. We met a little over two years ago and we really got to know each other by traveling. The world and sharing beds sometimes out of necessity and sometimes because we just wanted to hang out until we fell asleep. Love this woman in. If you don't already you will enjoy. Where should i start with you. Oh my god i'll take it from. I think we should tell the story of how we met. It's a match made in heaven literally literally literally we were dead and in heaven we died and went to heaven. No it's like. The story of how we met is one of the craziest friendship stories. That i've ever had. I agree and you know what's so crazy is i. I definitely compare myself to people and it makes me feel more insecure in a in a situation where we're both like auditions for something. Normally you would put yourself against the other contestants. But what would they be called like candidates. Everyone trying to get the same job. We were competing for the same job. We're competing dude literally rivals but became friends. It's like that's the part. Yeah and i wonder why like it must have been our energy or something because i also i had recently wrote a book right before i met you. I don't know if it was like the same week or something and it was about leadership and it was like it's about you shine. I shine which is how we connected. Yeah the whole thing is really weird. I wanna say. I know illegally in short. We weren't supposed to connect the way that we did. No and i think it's exactly what you said. His energy like we were in a room full of people. And yet somehow of those ten fifteen people you and i both wanted to get a snack. Which is very on brand very much..
Dissecting Benjamin Purnell and His Cult, the House of David
"After being booted out of ohio. The cornell's decided to relocate to the city of benton harbor where they settled on some land located on the southeastern shore of lake michigan there in nineteen.

Yes so they're they've created the kalt role show credits. That's what we did. Yeah thanks for stopping by. Were you like in a movie when they say the name of the movie. I'm like when's the credits said take a shot. This goal was in line. With benjamin cornell's belief that he was the seventh and final messenger of god as prophesized by joanna south cod so big big shoes to fill. Yeah a little bit. Yeah more specifically. He was convinced that he had been entrusted to carry out the mission outlining the revelation chapter. Eleven verse fifteen which read quote and the seventh angel sounded and there were great voices in heaven saying the kingdoms of this world are becoming the kingdoms of our lord and his christ and he shall reign forever and ever and quote so basically wants to be The messenger of to god basically. It's always it's always to me that people that are super religious especially when you're in the mindset of being a cult leader or a member of a coal or something of the sort that you all of a sudden see yourself as this grand profit or character or a figure head. It's like where was the. Where is the bridge that gaps from lake normal minister. Who goes out and tells people about god to god chose me and i am in the to bring the apocalypse and bring jesus back in it. It's just always a funny jump

"joanna" Discussed on The Living Room with Joanna Weaver
"Like desiring to just end it. All i mean. I have had those moments where the enemy is. Put those thoughts in my mind. And i'm telling you if you go get your bible. Go in the bathroom. If you have to shut the door in open the scriptures open the scripture up and if you have to open it to one thirty nine that the psalm one thirty nine and remind yourself maybe you know those versus but remind yourself that god made you he or danger days and he has a plan for you and he wants to work even through these difficult days. Yes challenging days. And and you're right. Joanna there the presence of god he's it's it's so amazing what it will do sometimes even even now. There's days in our marriage. John my marriage where it's just like this is so hard those days are few and and you know what you know. Thankfully they're they're few and far between but there. There are moments where the enemy wants to put his foot in the crack in the door and just do not get his get thinking in ways. We shouldn't think you now towards our towards our marriage tours children towards towards ministry towards towards towards maybe even the position at work that he's called you to whatever it is he. He loves us to have wrong thinking. And so i'll just get in the car and go for a drive turn worship music on and i'll find a parking lot somewhere that's secluded. There's a there's a little church that is about two miles from where we live in. I'll drive driven over there a couple of times over the years and got my bible out and put worship music on just cake. I need to be in your presence right now. I need you to rewrite my thinking. pour into me. Your will your thoughts and it's amazing to me how five ten minutes in his presence intentionally turning off my cell phone just focusing on him and leading the holy spirit speak poor. His grace and love is his truth over me can can change a circumstance. It happens by changing me. It starts with me exactly. And i think we're like yeah i don't i just don't have time but i think we would realize okay take the time that you're going to be miserable and in turmoil now sat in prayer. Put out put that in prayer. Because i just don't think we understand for the privilege we've been given to come bowl guests to the throne of grace and find help in our time of need Instead of a true. It's not about self help. it's about positioning ourselves. And i think for me like looking beyond what's going on and praying what you were talking about. Lord change me. Yeah wire my ass. Because i can get so fixated on everything. That's going wrong. That i missed that. God might be stirring up something that he wants to do in need so good and it's not like when you come out of that time with god that the situation around us zapped mysteriously just goes away. Now it's your heart is changed and you. You just have this confidence. That god's gonna help you he's going give you the words to say your husband or or you know just creative ways of of influencing a situation. But here's the deal. God wants us to rely on him. I amen and often like you say we want to go to our our bill. The ability within ourselves to right a situation. And he's like no. I want you to come to me..
"joanna" Discussed on The Living Room with Joanna Weaver
"You're not just a ten year like you're like i. Nineteen point nine nine amazing gift to the body of christ. But you look back in. You think how you could have left that insecurity. You could let what you thought about you. Define you what. That man confirmed about you. You could just stayed in that role but instead you you said lord i want to think differently what would you say to that woman who's going. Wow i i feel so inadequate i was telling you yesterday that in so many ways though i come from a different. I'm not the shy girl. I'm the too loud grab that intimidation my own cash. That constantly is saying. Oh joanna you need to tone it down you are way too much my own fear that That my motives are not pure. And i know myself so well that i can actually get paralyzed by myself awareness. In god's been seem he's been seeing. Joanna will you believe what i say. Yeah above what Saudi how do we get our. How do we get there. Well you know the enemy comes to steal kill and destroy and he is constantly wanting to stop us all from just walking in victory in living out the call of god for our lives. Whatever that looks for looks like an any girl's life some whatever god called you to. It looks different than joanna and me but the enemy hates it. He hates to see us flourishing and he wants all of us to be hiding hiding and and To to honestly keep us keep a secluded and feeling ineffective and insecure. I mean that that is his he can do that. He has one and over the course of minnesota course of my life but if we just look at even just james river when we came to james river john and i were we were. I would say we were broken. Leaders we were we were. We felt very in inadequate for the task of pastoring we had pastored for two and a half years pioneered a church in kansas city. That was extremely difficult and Just we we tried so hard. We we made nineteen thousand phone calls we knocked on. I think we knocked on about five thousand doors and we had we had to a two three and four year olds during that time When we went when we took we started the church and we knew no one in kansas city area. And i i. I give that backdrop just so girls listening to understand what we're experiencing now. It's supernatural. yeah but at the same time it. We had to choose to have faith even through the difficult seasons and times in our life and in the journey. So just because i say man. You need to believe god's word and if you believe god's word for yourself the truth about what he says about you then it's all going to be like..
"joanna" Discussed on The Living Room with Joanna Weaver
"What he was saying. He was saying debbie. Don't don't you. Don't i don't believe what he's saying is true. And we went home that night and prayed about it and felt like god was leading us to come. The this man was not a bad person. Yeah yeah In god we took the position we served under him. It was difficult. But this he this pastor lab to god yeah he wanted to honor god with his life and god wanted to use him. Teach us things That we would take into ministry. He taught us things that he didn't that we knew we didn't want to be if that makes sense. Yeah and and so I'm thankful for those that year and a half two years that we were under his leadership and also god began to use that season to cause me to evaluate his truth about me Because i had to come to a place. Where i believe the word of god over what anyone would say over me or speak over me or or my past the things that i've experienced that had created insecurity in my spirit. And you you know we can. I knew scripture. Joanna use psalms one thirty nine by heart. My parents read truth over us over their children and spoke truth over us but honestly until we believe that truth for ourselves we can have hanging on the wall. We can have it memorized but until we believe it. it's not going to radically effect our thinking. And and so you know she believes shares a lot of that journey And really. I did not. I started to understand that. I was thinking wrongly about myself Through those first few years of ministry. But it took years and years. Before i fully embrace the truth of god's word for myself and said okay. God i believe you have Perfectly an intentionally created for the purposes that you are calling me too and that with with you in me. I can do all things that you called me to and And do them effectively through your power that is were at work in me And once i honestly chose to believe that for myself. That's when i saw god opened doors That i would have never imagined would have opened. I love it so ministry. So one of the things that i i see in a seat in my own life to is the things that i've struggled with what i think are liabilities. What i think are going to keep me from being affected are actually the places that guide us is most and i see that in you. Debbie like you know that girl you see that girl who struggling you know her you see that girl who feels inadequate use yet girl who who just wants to kind of be invisible and you know how to drive out and i was just thinking last night of though is prayed. Oh god please let me work. I was thinking first of all for of you. Who are listening. You know debbie. Her story is really beautiful. They went onto a two to pastor at different situations planted a church. It didn't really go very well now. Springfield and then began to fulfil. Just this as orey now have over. Twelve thousand people worshiping on a sunday morning at multiple. Campuses You have a prayer media that has five to six thousand yet. The thing i love about you. Debbie is. You are still. You're still that girl with heart wide open. And and you are that girl who i honestly think. I think you're the heart behind. James river back. Because i walk into this mega church and i feel the love that and i think far from being a liability girl..
Satya Nadella: Windows 11 Is Centered on You
"I'm joanna. Stern and i recently had a chat with a pretty big name in the tech world. My name is satya nadella. Sio chairman of microsoft the that i spoke about windows eleven. That's the company's next big operating system. It was announced yesterday. And it's due out later this year. I'm calling right now from a windows. Ten computer what is going to be different upgrade to windows eleven i would say the experience right it's modern and more importantly it centered on you even just that little subtle shift of this start in the center there. It is from the king of microsoft himself in windows eleven. The start button moves to the bottom center of the screen but that cosmetic change actually has deeper meaning. That word center center center of center is core to noodles vision. That windows eleven should be at the center of your digital life as apple and google entice users to their increasingly closed off worlds.

"To him. Throughout the day. Continuous ended conversation. Now listen i have never heard the audible voice of god. Speak to me back. And i would really like that but i've decided not to let that hinder me because by faith i know he is right there. And by faith as i just share my life with him It's just a sweet sweet sense of his presence. That comes sometimes. I'll just comment on the beauty and say well how god you just made this earth so beautiful or sometimes i'm like oh lord i don't even know what to do in this situation and i just pray a breath prayer of him for his help. Sometimes i just expressed gratitude and thank him for what he's given all the blessings i enjoy. Sometimes it's just simple. Oh lord help me. Kind of prayer but in this continuous conversation. I think i'm coming to to understand a little bit of what palm it in i. S aloni and five seventeen when he said pray without ceasing. Now listen that doesn't mean that we're just babbling on and on and on and on you know you've had a friend like that that you couldn't get an edge word in edgewise. If you want it now it's not that you pat it. I think sometimes the sweetest conversation is just this. Evan plow. I'm not foreseen it. We're just comfortable with each other. It's it's kind of the intimacy that my husband and i are enjoying where we'll go through a period where we talk and we share deep things or then we'll shot talking to share shallow things. Sometimes were just silent and we just enjoy being together. That's the kind of friendship. God wants to have with us to pray without ceasing that word ceasing in the greek means just constantly reoccurring as something comes to mind that we just bring guide into the loop so acknowledged god's presence in fight guy to take the throne of your heart and then talk to him throughout the day as you do. This friendship is going to blossom. This romance is to become is going to become so sweet. As i was thinking about intimacy with god i was reminded a brother lawrence in that famous book called practicing the presence of guy. It was written way back in the seventeenth century brother. Lawrence was just a humble cook in a french monastery. It was written as a series of letters that he never intended to be published but he had written to a friend just describing this intimate friendship that he enjoyed with god as the lord over the years. And i think that's key it wasn't immediate. It was over the year as he simply practice the presence of god it knowledged god in every single part of his day whether he was washing dishes or scrubbing floors or attending vespers. With the other monks brother lawrence knowledge. God any any enjoyed living conversation with guide. Always turning everything even the mundane tasks to axe appraise and communion with god. And you know what. I've just decided that rather than time blocking my life and leaving a piece for cheeses and just doing my duty and having my quiet time but then going on and doing my own thing the rest of the day. I don't know i don't know that that's true friendship instead. I want to invite jesus into every part of my heart. Because i believe that's the true secret to intimacy with god in the business of life hanging out with jesus doing life with him making him the focus of our heart even as we go grocery shopping or as were answering emails that we do it in his presence. I hope you won't miss this kind of friendship. That got so wants to enjoy with you because i can tell you from experience. It's everything you long for an everything you need. I cannot tell you that every moment of my day is infused with the tangible presence of god. It isn't my life's very ordinary in sometimes. Sometimes just like you i. I have to do it by faith. Not by feeling but as i do i think at least i hope god with concur. I'm enjoying a deeper and sweeter friendship with him. I believe it's the secret to a victorious. Life i believe it's the secret to living and loving and leading like jesus. It's the living room you guys. It's the living room intimacy. That marion joys. As she sat at jesus feet not coming up with clever responses not serving him a lavish meal betcha simply being in his presence drinking in his love absorbing hall of his wisdom and then pouring out her love in worship and service to god. that's the living room intimacy. God wants to have with you and me if you'd like to learn how to cultivate a deeper friendship with god. I'd like to point you to my book having a merry heart in a martha world. It's really the story of my journey into intimacy with god and it's filled with tips and tools. I've picked up along the way as well as the deeper. Look at that story of mary and martha. Those two sisters. So deeply loved by. Jesus you can find a sample chapter over. Today's show notes. Joanna weaver books dot com. Will you guys. I hope that this episode has helped you see that intimacy with god is not a bunch of things we do instead. It's really it's really just a mindset turning our eyes on jesus each and every day inviting him into everything we do in week do that relationship just like every friendship sweeter becomes easier. It's becomes deeper invited. God to be a part of our everyday life while you guys. I hope you have a wonderful wonderful week.

"Sacrifice. The bible tells us that at his last breath the veil was torn and we were all able to come into the holy of holies. Each one of us can come into his presence. Some of us who who have known cheeses all our life we i think. Don't even realize the privilege the honor the the acceptance that has already been extended to us others of us. That are listening. Maybe we we really would be honest and say i am not a christian I i'm interested. But i don't have any idea how to get. There will listen. The first step is to simply accepting what as payment for you like a ticket. That what he did for you cancels sin and the power of sin in your life so that you can have transformed life but also that you can come in to a reconciled relationship with your father is arms open wide just waiting for you to come so the works already been done. The way has been made. The price has been paid. We can come into this deep friendship with god but the second secret. I want to share his. This intimacy with god isn't something outside of us. It's recognizing god living within us. You know he. Even though. I've walked with jesus for so long and have enjoyed an intimate friendship with him. Sometimes i get this feeling that he's out there somewhere and then i just have to find him in. Wendy the holy. Spirit just whispered joanna. I'm already here. What are you doing chasing something outside of you when all you have to do is just acknowledge that i dwell in us because of jesus christ the third secret is we simply have to respond to god's wooing. We do not have to work to earn his favor in. Jesus christ he's already extended his favor. God has initiated relationship. All we have to do is respond. So how do we have intimacy with god. In the business of life will hear some things just impractical things. That have helped me three things that i try to do. Each and every day number one simply acknowledge god's presence proverbs three five and six is one of my favorite verses and you know the first part trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. But it's the next part. I want us to focus on in all your ways. Acknowledge him in all your ways in every day what would happen if we simply stopped and acknowledged god's presence with us able to help us acknowledging that he's with me he's four me and he's at work on. My behalf was reminded of this first many years ago. It was a sunday back in grants pass oregon and i walked up to a group of young teenagers and one of the girls had been us piano student and i. I don't know what happened. But for some reason she must have been offended at me because she completely ignored me. I mean all of the other girls that. Hey joanna and i even said hey and i said her name and she looked right through me to the other girl and started talking to her. It was like i didn't even exist and it felt like a knife in my heart. I want to win a mike. What in the world did i do. But as soon as i thought that i just had this god thought. Follow my heart. And i felt him. Say that's how i feel. Sometimes wow that god. This god who walks with his the presence of jesus christ our friend the holy spirit of god who dwells us. He's always there and yet sometimes we can go through a whole day even a whole week even perhaps an entire month without acknowledging his presence so that's number one simply acknowledge god's presence every morning. Hey lord how are you doing. Hey lord i need you and then number two. I would just invite you to invite god to take the throne a before. I even get out of bed. I try to do this nearly every morning. I imagine this thrown of my life. And i imagine getting off the throne and inviting god to take the throne and then bowing before him and seen lord my day but you be the lord of all you call the shots. You know what needs to happen. Lead me lord. I will follow. We'll never know god. I really believe this. We will never truly know god until we truly surrender our lives to him and while that can be a process. It's an ongoing process in my life. As i do as i surrender my life as i give him the throne and the right to call the shots. I've come into it deeper intimacy with him. I think of jesus in matthew four nineteen when he said to the disciples come follow me and the bible says that immediately. They left their nets. They didn't even bother to pack a bag. They just simply followed jesus and because of that they enjoyed intimacy with the lord that surpassed anything any human being ever known before god god with us emmanuel in the flesh dwelling among them. And you and. I are invited to that same relationship. Finally after acknowledging god's presence and inviting him to take the throne. I would invite you to talk to. Jesus all throughout the day all throughout the day. I really am i. I think that this has become kind of a habit in my life. I have to confess that. I'm not as good at that. Sit set apart Prayer time were arm interceding. And i'm doing a spiritual warfare. And i definitely need to work on that but i do think that over the years. I've come to enjoy a living conversation with the lord just talking.

Podcast has been featured on itunes new and noteworthy in christianity category as well as the larger category of religion and spirituality. And that's really a big deal so thank you thank you. Thank you Well as i've been preen about what to share in the solo episode. I kept coming back to the topic of intimacy with god in the business of life. Because that's always been my challenge. I just be honest I'm a good girl. I wanna do good things but have always really struggled to carve out a daily quiet time with the lord but you know what as i was thinking about that and about the tools that i'm really excited to share with you on an upcoming episode. I just felt the holy spirit say Let's just back up a little bit. Joanna because poor talking about intimacy. If we're talking about friendship you know what that is not a method or a program that we need. No in fact i think sometimes we look for methods and programs Quickly as christians. We want to figure out how to fix it but a a relationship takes time. I mean think about your marriage. Think about your friendships. It's only as you invest time as you spend time in proximity with that person that the relationship grows as christians. We talk a lot about having a personal relationship with god. But i don't think we realized how much god wants to have a personal relationship with us. I believe it's the reason why we were created. What should go clear back to the beginning to the card in the eden. When god said let us make man in our image. It wasn't just this celestial science project he wasn't to say hairless pop plop adam and eve in on earth and see what happens. No god created them to have relationship with them. The bible tells us that they would walk and talk in the cool of the day. It was a living vibrant relationship and yet sin sin ended the garden but it did not end the relationship. God clothed them and then love followed them out of the garden and continue to initiate relationship with man. The bible is in fact as an entire story of god's love reaching out for us god looking for people to call his own and even though we were checked at him time and time again his love just kept on reaching going so far as to send his son to live in walk among us to show us his love to show us the father and who god really is. I love how jesus didn't just say. Hey all of you. You come to where i am now. Jesus went to where people were and he spent time with them. He called his disciples and he lived with them. It was all about relationship and then he went so far as to die in our place and take our sin and our punishment. So that you and i could be reconciled back to relationship with our heavenly father. It's been the plan from the beginning of time that you and i would have friendship with god. I love how we fijian's one puts it in the message. Verse four says long before he laid down earth's foundation god had us in mind had settled on us as the focus of his love to be made whole and holy by his love. Long long ago he decided. Listen to this you guys. He decided to adopt us into his family through. Jesus christ what pleasure took implanting this. Oh you may not realize this my friend but you are deeply loved and deeply desired by god. He wants to know you and he wants to be known by you but intimacy with god can be a little threatening. I know i felt at times. We know that we need it. A we even long for deep inside. But we don't always know how to get at least. That was my story i've shared in previous episodes. How that. I've always been a good girl wanting to do good things and yet when it came to spiritual disciplines and really cultivating my walk with god. I was so undisciplined that i felt like a complete failure. I remember thinking okay. I know that. I need to have a quiet time and you know. Let me just insert here that. I am excited to share practical tips and tools to help. You have a quiet time that is meaningful and rich but but you know what if we make it a programmer. A method were gonna miss out on the friendships. That god wants to have. And so. I'll share that. In in in future episodes. I even plan on releasing a living room. E course that will give you some of the tools that really transformed my walk with god but before we get there. I wanna share some secrets to intimacy with god. First of all the first secret to intimacy with god is this. It isn't what we do. It's what god has already done and listen. I kind of shared some of that. How jesus came and then how he died but do you realise. Do you realise what his death on the cross did it took away. The bible says the dividing wall of hostility that stood between us and god that dividing wall that separated simple man from a holy god and because of cheeses his.

About burst mapping and the new bible study bible. That's come out from zondervan and we tell us. How did you even get started in. Bursts mapping how did a fiction author tie. She's she's not only does jesus girl but she's a word girl. I love that question. It has a very long answer. Does fortunate we are that we are on a podcast conversation and we can talk through some of that. I would say I'm asked often. I would say it has more to do with the space of ministry that god calls you to as a storyteller burst is being a fiction author or nonfiction author or any number of things that you can do that. The lord has called me to the space of ministry from where art and history and faith intersex so that can look like a lot of things right. It can look like historical fiction and it has. I'm working on my eighth ninth and tenth novel so he looks like that but also just this great love of stories and storytelling and that for me has bridged across to nonfiction. Into verse mapping and somewhat. I didn't college I went to art school. So i'm art girl Not really good into drawing painting not that kind of art art research and research writing. So that's my background. And it's just this love of like.

"joanna" Discussed on The Living Room with Joanna Weaver
"Sometimes we just don't really know whether the circumstances we're going through is part of pruning or just being in a fallen world or what but there comes a place where we can rest that god has are good in mind and it doesn't even matter because whatever it is. He's gonna work for our good he. He loves us in his tending faithfully and tenderly That's that's so important. I think just even even wrapping our heads around that even if we can't understand the actual Experience understanding the father's heart. I think it's so important in their happen. There've been and i have had them extreme extreme pruning seasons where i had said lord wait a minute that was super fruitful. That's just not gir- you know. That's not just new. Buying that was like super fruitful. And he says joanna trust me. They know what i'm doing. And and i can look back and go. Yeah you really really did. And it was for my good yes it was. There was a season i think. Sometimes we forget this too. I don't know why. I feel like we're supposed to at least bring this into the discussion that there are seasons of what appears to be inactivity absolutely really hard on us when as you've been doing a study in this what have you learned about those times. Oh my goodness sat dormant season. The winter season is so important to the health of plant and if future productivity A lot more is happening in those doorman seasons than than we ever know. Certainly for the plan but also for our lives and so. I think there's a time to just again. It's sat settling into where we're at right now. Not wishing past seasons back in oath. I could only go back to that time where it seemed like i was so fruitful or stretching ahead to. Oh well i'm just hoping this will work out. And then then i'll bear fruit but but even now even if it feels like a dormant season settle in with jesus love him. Let him love you one of the things that that i talk about it again. I try to stay away from fancy spiritual formulas but but i know that there are practices. That kinda helps with the binding and so for me. I in the book. I offer six simple practices of abiding and so it it seems so basic we think about jesus and so i've included some jesus sought prompts. How do we arrange our lives in a way that were never we never give ourselves a chance to forget him that we we create opportunities for our mind to keep going back to him and then we talked to. Jesus we keep a running conversation with him going. I was thinking recently. You know we do what we can do. But we pray what we cannot do. ending god does so much but we talk to jesus we talk at about. Jesus just like we're doing now with bringing him into our conversations with our friends. We love jesus and let him love us in join. I think this might speak to that doorman season. Where we're it's okay. Sometimes to not. Just be blooming..
"joanna" Discussed on The Living Room with Joanna Weaver
"Maybe you're right down in a shares. Maybe remember some of your history with god maybe dream a little bit with god. But you just set aside fifteen minutes a day pondering the love of god the love that he has for you It will change your brain structure interchange your saw. I mean it literally does change things neurologically for you. Hot not to mention how spiritually changed his thing. So i know for me. Joanna win my spiritual disciplines. Become otto's in should do's and maybe i've said this on your show before and not get too for me. It's because i've lost sight of the love of god so when i'm in a place of just surviving like my anchor. My hope is to get back to that place to remind my soul. That i can't. I can't interpret god's love through the lens of military hardships. That's why scripture says that we don't look at what is can seek temporary rising what we cannot see because these are light and momentary troubles and they're achieving for us eternal glory that far outweighs the mall in the fact is our problems. Don't feel like in momentary. There's nothing about them. That feels metairie but the word is true. So the contrast of the glory that awaits us is so significant. We can't even imagine so. I say every moment every hardship every battle has eternal implications. Like whether you choose face or not whether you choose love or not whether you choose to find your strengthen the joy of the lord or not in our our part. That really makes a very big difference. I'm gonna choose to believe the father's love even when it doesn't feel. I don't know about you but there's times where i've had to say. I want to pay attention to my feelings at different times. But i in certain i'm not leading with feelings. I don't know if that's helpful but it sure helped me. Well that's exactly what the lord's been teaching me going through my journals from the last three years because they've been working on a new book and just the struggle of it that it is for me and one of the things i just keep the lord keeps bringing me back to over and over is joanna. I need you to stop living your feelings. And i need you to start living by the fact that you are mine that i love you and i have good good things for you and if i if you're constantly judging me by your experience or your current reality basically it came down to this. He said to me one day. You need to stop contradicting me. That's good got to stop contradicting me. And every time. I allow my feelings to lead most of the time especially when it's in that negative bent. I'm in opposition to god's word i am and so how to do that and i think that that's one of the things i love about this. Devotional is you. Bring us back to the truth of god's word and i do love it. He didn't tidy up scripture to just make it stories of people who only always overcame. You know. I love that you were gonna learn from those mistakes as well absolutely you know we. We are in a day of cherry picking theology. My truth in your truth is so damaging amid post-truth cultures. They're calling it right now and one of the things i do..
