What's to come in the next several blog posts:
I wanted to share what my next blogs are going to look like and be about. From now through March of 2022 I want to write about YOU. smile.
You may be thinking, “How could you write about me? Do you even know me?” Perhaps I know you a small bit or perhaps I have never met you. Yet – I intend to write about you… and me. Yes, I think in writing about me and my story you may learn things that will help you in yours.
So, I will write about “us.”
I’m a coach. I like my job and I think I’m good at it. I’ve been doing this for about 4 years now (not to mention the mentoring and counseling I’ve done for over 30
years as a youth pastor, missionary, and minister). I’m finding my groove and my “mission” within this job. I’m learning a tiny bit about how people work and how to shift our lives.
But then... I’ve been working on myself for a whole lot longer! And in this process, I’ve learned how to write things on my heart so it becomes more than just head knowledge or information (I’m sure you have realized how information
and knowledge alone does not change things).
My heart is to help myself and everyone – literally everyone – to learn who they are and their personal value, so they are equipped for whatever comes their (our) way.
Did you know you can become so secure that you cannot be embarrassed, humiliated, self-conscious, proud, angry, inferior, “less than” or even rejected?
As you establish your identity, you become so strong and empowered that while you feel the potential for these things, you can quite literally be at peace even when bad things happen, conflict comes, or relationships seem to fall apart.
This doesn’t mean you don’t experience a prick of the pain or rejection or anger or loss… it simply means you have the tools to remember who you are and your value within every difficult situation. Your heart, once written on, becomes so settled that you quickly regain the peace of who you are.
Now, because identity is a journey, we are always on the “learning path.” Yet, we can become established and peaceful in these arenas.
THIS is my goal as a coach, to get people so certain and established that they can feel that (insert your default feelings of insecurity here) and then quickly remember who they are in order to take the next right actions to heal.
Side note: understand there is a point we can heal others with our words and a separate point wherein they are responsible for their own hearts and healing.
Perhaps the next right action means an apology, an admission of guilt, even restitution – but once you are secure, you find out it’s okay to be wrong and make mistakes and still
accept yourself because you are accepted by the Almighty God.
I’m not suggesting we ever become the ugly “you-can’t-judge-me-because-I’m-perfect-beautiful-and-right-and…” type. We’ve all seen these people on talk shows, reality shows, and real life. These people are brash and harsh, never correctible, or empathetic. Never truly secure and loving. They are the fool that Proverbs talks about (Proverbs
18:2-3, 18:13, 20:3, and so much more).
I trust this is not you, my sweet reader. smile.
Now then, let this just be a simple introduction to what is “to come” over the next few months. Having said all of this, what I will be sharing is how to write the truth on your heart.
This is a chance for you to receive “free coaching!” These little tidbits you will read about are small doses of what I give my clients to help them find their identity and get it written on their hearts as though writing on stone – never to be removed or lost.
