Stir the Deep with Me
7 Week Mentoring Program
I started actively cultivating a deep, real relationship with God in 2001. What I gained is beyond tremendous in every facet of my life. My passion is to share with others what I have learned. Not to teach, but to give others the tools to drink from the fountain of living water themselves. I developed a mentoring program to help others to establish a quiet time with God to cultivate a relationship with Him. I’m posting the program on my blog for those who would like to participate on their own.

Below is information on the program.
• Would you like to develop intimacy with God?
• Discover a love for the Word?

Stir the Deep with Me: One-on-One Discipleship Mentoring was created to help others develop their one-on-one relationship with God. Its goal is to cultivate intimacy with God and help others fulfill their ultimate purpose to being in a deep relationship with Him in truth and love. It isn’t a Bible study. It is establishing a lifestyle. It is a discipleship with coaching and accountability in spending quiet time with God.
Those with a desire to learn 1.) how to cultivate deeper intimacy with God 2.) how to spend quality alone time that builds a deep, real relationship with God, and 3.) have God as their first love are a good candidate for this program. Those who partake do with the understanding that it’s the journey to fulfillment of the first commandment to love God with all their heart, soul and mind and quiet devotion is of utmost importance among their priorities. It is for those willing to pass on what they will gain.
The 7 weeks include:
A. Participation in ~10 minute instructional meeting (video) each week including the following topics
1. The Process of Quiet Time
2. Coming as a Bride
3. Holy Spirit as The Teacher
4. Structure of the Word of God
5. Perspectives for being in the Word of God
6. What to Expect?
7. Review and Mentoring Others
B. Participation in a brief accountability and counsel meeting as follows:
1. 1st – 4thweeks- 2 times a week
2. 5th – 7th weeks – 1 time a week
C. Your commitment to 40 minutes of one-on-one time a day with God in His Word that will become a part of your daily life.
This journey only works if there is an active engagement and commitment. If you are ready to step into a deep relationship with God and thus the life God has waiting for you and make this commitment you will be blessed beyond measure. This program is the only beginning to a lifelong journey walking hand-in-hand with God.

Hi Rachel, these sound like wonderful ideas. I have been challenged by several brothers and sisters in person and in the books and blogs I’ve been reading to spend more quality time with God each day. I’ve been on this journey for about a year now; I believe it has made a difference although I have definitely seen that it takes time! I ahve actually been concerned that my time with God has been less frequent and less meaningful lately, so this is coming at a perfect time to focus and encourage me. Thanks again! I’m excited to see the videos over the next few weeks.

Ruth – I’m so glad that you found these helpful. My hope is to encourage others on their journey in spending that time because it is so important. I’ll be posting the next video this week.

Thanks for posting these videos and your program–I’ll have to stop by when I have more time.
God Bless you in your work.

Slamdunk – thanks. The time we spend with God, our first love – is the most important and the best way to spend our time.

Wonderful post. Well done. God is the Power. Prayer works. We need faith to believe that one can move mountains. Our pets are gifts from God; to show and give love. We must continue to pray for the Will of God be done. God Bless you and your fine work in the Lord.

I think am in that place of darkness and depisar and every day God is teaching me many things about Him. am learning that it’s all about Him and not me. To day I learnt that God’s blessing came to me as He gives me what I need, not what I am expecting. My prayer is that I learn or that He makes me willing to do His will. Thank you May God bless you.

A Reflection on the Body of Christ
Some random thoughts… the Body is built on relationship, not hierarchy.
We relate via the presence of the Holy Spirit, who will bear witness of the things of Christ, and they will be in agreement/harmony with the written word.
Believers are gifted differently and thereby contribute via the Holy Spirit to the building up of the body.
As we are transformed increasingly in to the likeness of Christ, in character and conduct, His presence will be more greatly manifested…His light will shine in/through us.
It is important to remember that the body functions via Spirit not Law. Scripture tells us that Love never fails. The Love of I Corinthians 13 is only possible by /through the operation of the Spirit. It is therefore important to NOT keep record of wrongs or scorecards of offenses… rather it is important to have a teachable spirit, a heart attitude which is quick to repent and forgive.
Let us be diligent and prayerful to have His wisdom to meet every daily situation with the mind of Christ.

Rachel, I am a Christian and was tired of living a typical Christian life and I wanted more. I have never had a relationship with God that I was able to hear his Holy Spirit. I found your videos on YouTube and began the mentoring program yesterday. I know God has a plan for my life and he has a lot of work to do in my life but I wanted to thank you for these videos.

Hi Philip — I know that place … wanting more. You are on the right path with this individual seeking laid out in the videos. I started it 10 years ago – and it is amazing journey into God. I’ll be praying for you. Please don’t hesitate to email me at any time. 🙂

I really idiienfted with this blog. You wrote Few of us passionately pursue God in the pleasant times of life unless we have first learned the lessons of wrestling with Him in times of desperation and despair. Until then we tend to live life as though we have it all under control, because most of us believe that we do. This was so true of my life. I once had a mis-belief that I was totally in control of my life and then it all came crashing down and every area of my life was affected. At my lowest moment, I cried out to God and asked Him to show me if He was really there. Things started happening in my life that told me He was real and He was there. Over a period of time, I started crawling and then walking with Him. Had I never had that experience, I would not have developed a relationship with the One who loves us unconditionally and is in complete control of my life. What was once the hardest time of my life is now considered a blessing because I would not be walking with Him otherwise.
