Christian Life/Hope/Spiritual Coaching

Over the course of the past 6 months, amazing opportunities have opened up for me in becoming a certified Christian Life Coach. During the training, I have discovered my niche coaching in the field of service of Hope Coaching, and Spiritual Life Coaching. I am excited to become certified, trained, and experienced in walking alongside others who have experienced the loss of a spouse and helping them reach the level of their journey where they can find hope and joy; as well as those people who have reached a point in their relationship with the Lord and have stalled for one reason or another. I am committed to helping my clients see results in their lives no matter what their journey. Life Coaching is not counseling. Counseling is focused on past hurts, struggles and traumas. Coaches come along after the healing has taken place, the grieving has subsided, and you find yourself at a crossroad not knowing what the first step is to take. I am excited and committed to helping others to reach the point of finding out their purpose and destination and the steps to achieve them!

It seems our soul’s history with God oftentimes reflects the deaths of those most important to us. It is in those times of loss that we falter, become discouraged, give- up on life, become physically sick or brokenhearted. Instead we should turn full face to face and truly see the Lord! Sometimes God allows the void left by our loved ones to place Himself in the role they held in our life.  It is those with a sad past that need to be able to believe in a bright future. Have a vision about ourselves, our past, future and of God. It does not cost us anything to believe in hope. But also understand from where our hope comes. Some people are afraid to believe, or have a vision, out of fear of disappointment. Take an inventory of your priorities. Is God first, second, third, etc. in your life? No one, or thing, should take the place of Christ Jesus in your life. Once your priorities are inline, your vision becomes clear, hope becomes restored. Realize the ultimate price was paid on the cross. The price we pay to believe shows God we are willing to live up to the vision He has for our lives.
Where there is no vision (no redemptive revelation of God), the people perish; but he who keeps the law (of God, which includes that of man)-- blessed (happy, fortunate and enviable) is he. ~Proverbs 29:18

Making Plans

Sometimes things don't go as planned. We are not in control. "Commit your actions to the Lord and your plans will succeed" Proverbs 16:3. Before you make your plans, ask the Lord for His favor. If you make plans and THEN ask Him to bless it, it may not work out the way you first intended. Commit your works, ideas to the Lord, trust Him wholly and He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, then your plans will be established and succeed.
