With all the demands on time and the number of things we're each responsible for, do you sometimes neglect yourself?
I know I am certainly guilty of that at times. As a full-time life coach, I'm also "do-er" / type A / professional multi-tasker, so I love helping others achieve and accomplishing goals that I've set for myself. In other words...
I love making a difference!
Am I neglecting myself in the process?
Recently, I realized that a thought was trying to make its way to my frontal lobe. When that happens, I have learned to stop and listen to what is asking to be heard.
Sometimes it's a great idea, a reminder, or a solution to a problem.
When I stopped to listen...
...I realized that most of my shoes were worn out and that my feet were hurting some every night.
Wow! I needed new shoes!
So yesterday, I blocked off some time, drove to the outlet mall, and came home with 4 beautiful pairs of Clarks Shoes - different styles to...
Dear friend - If you are in Christ, if you know Him as your Savior and Lord, then whatever He calls you to do is significant.
We, humans, have a tendency to compare ourselves with others - and that includes believers!
If we are a stay-at-home parent or caregiver, we tend to think that's not as important or significant as someone who owns a business or leads a ministry.
If we are a factory worker, we tend to think our job is not as important as the supervisor's role.
The truth is that each of us carries far more significance than we realize!
What seems to be the simplest kind of calling on someone's life can actually be the hardest to perform because it requires the same submission to the Holy Spirit and the Lordship of Jesus as any other calling or purpose.
This past week, my husband caught a terrible sore throat virus that kept us both up in broken sleep most nights. And while I am called as a life coach, teacher, and minister, I am also...
Do you struggle with forgiving others? Most people do. When we've been hurt, it just hurts! But the key is in knowing how to set yourself free.
Many of us don't experience the healing of forgiveness and the freedom it brings because we don't understand the power of forgiveness. Many times we either don't realize the powerful key we've been given by God, or we don't know how to use the key.
Unforgiveness keeps people chained to the past.
Last fall, I released my first book, The Guts & Glory of Forgiveness - Living Healed. In my book I share the process I went through to be released from things like abuse, manipulation, theft, grief, and betrayal.
I was recently interviewed by Barbara Hitching about forgiveness. We had a very honest conversation about the struggle and the process. In this interview, you will hear much of my own story of forgiveness and how I struggled - until I obtained the keys to freedom!
"As a man thinketh, so is he or so does he become" (Proverbs 23:7). This verse in the Bible tells us very plainly that the way we think is important.
But even more, the way we think about our life has the power to CREATE our very life!
Mindsets are very important: set your mind on higher things, on right things!
"Be transformed by the entire renewal of your mind" (Romans 12:1-2).
We must put off the old way of thinking and believing and train our minds to agree with God's Word!
We need to constantly have a FRESH mental attitude. What goes on inside you - in your thoughts, expectations, and spoken words has the POWER to determine how long you will be in the wilderness.
