As a First Lady & Leading Life & Business Coach, I’m honored to help others discover and live out their God-given purpose. To be effective, it’s important for me to stay on the cutting edge of material that can help you live a life that truly glorifies God.
To that end, I’ve been reading an excellent book recently called, What on Earth am I Here For? by Pastor Rick Warren.
Several truths in the book stood out to me, especially in this season of caring for my Mom.
#1. God wants you to give something back.
Have you ever done something or written something that you didn’t expect would receive a lot of attention?
That just happened.
Turns out that this blog post I sent to my email list got a ton of opens.
It turns out that a whole lot of us are burned out.
I saw this quote on Facebook the other day and it made me smile because Lord knows it’s true:
“Don’t compare yourself with other Moms. We’re all a hot mess. Some just hide it better than others.”
Tell God exactly how you feel.
David wrote, “I believed, so I said, ‘I am completely ruined!” Psalm 116:10
In other words, David said, “I trust God, but I’m wiped out!”
“But He knows the way that I take, and when He has tried me, I shall come forth as pure gold.” Job 23:10
Back when I first started my coaching business, I promised God that I would dedicate the business back to Him. Ultimately, it’s all for HIS glory.
“God has given gifts to each of you from His great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God’s generosity can flow through you…Are you called to help others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then God will be given glory.” 1 Peter 4:10-11 (NLT) and 2 Corinthians 8:19b (NCV)
To that end, I started a weekly video series on Facebook Live called Friday Faith Walks with Lady J.
Each Friday at 11 a.m. CST, join us as we come together around a topic of inspiration and offer encouragement and prayer for your day.
I hope you’ll join me!
