Question: Why Life Coaching in the Body of Christ..?

Because ‘Christian Life Coaching ‘build’s and maintains Motivation for the Journey!..

The Bible exhorts us to pursue Vision; for without Vision, God’s people perish!

Coaching is about growing & encouraging ‘momentum!’ Helping people learn, rather than telling them!

In the future, those who are not Coach’s will not be promoted. Why? Because Coaching is about ‘Growth & Vision.

So, it’s time to let go of those things behind and ‘press’ toward the Goal for the prize of God’s Calling on Our life.

It’s amazing what people can do when you give them a chance!

Someone looking in on your circumstances can be of great value.

Take for example ‘Business’. It was God’s influence that opened up the right opportunity you are now enjoying. Yes, you were quick to make the right decisions He brought to you, and the right people at the right time to do what was needed. But it was Him who gave you the strength and the wisdom to see the vision that you are now operating under.

Yes you had to be wiling and brave to take the necessary steps forward, but HE did it! Thankfully you were quick to hear the Lords’ prompting and to act on them.

So now it’s your turn to pass on the Baton of Blessing: for every good and perfect gift from our Father of lights.

Peter j Foster (Christian Life Coach)

Mind the Gap!

Have you ever noticed that right at the epicentre of a disagreement, say with your Partner or someone else close to you, there will be a gap; both sides temporarily disconnected in a kind of no-mans landscape.

One of the parties may take the ‘lull  in activity’ to mean a temporary cessation of conflict – even professing'The Path' to have won the battle! But not for long! In a moment the two parties lurch back to the epicentre of the conflict and continue spouting nonsense, threats and self-proclaimed victory! There is, however, no time to proclaim victory at this rate, for this is a God-given moment to be still and let God be God.

IN OTHER WORDS, SHUT-UP AND LET GOD SPEAK!

He may bring a word of encouragement, conviction, understanding or revelation! Whatever you feel, remain right there in the intensity of the moment and allow God to do His ‘Thing! Eventually you will feel The Lords peace, ‘the peace that passes understanding.’ This is His grace indeed; and your opportunity to allow His full work take it’s place as you thank Him for His kindness.

Getting rid of the Junk!

I’ve noticed that every time I’ve made a deliberate action to curtail the strategies of the Enemy to steal some aspect of my life, I have invariably come out of it the worst!

It’s as though I’ve deliberately invited Him, the ‘Enemy’, to put me under his feet and crush me down to a pulp!

And yet, still unperturbed I have often gone back for more!

For example, when at 40 years I decided I was ready for a career change and chose ‘Life Coaching’ (to replace my Graphic Design career) I was tested in every single way possible!

Even though I fought with every last breath, I was beaten remorsely. Not a very encouraging spectacle for my burgeoning Coaching career!

Christian Breakthrough!

“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ…”

The trouble is, I had been doing it in my own strengh. I’d been trying to discard the rubbish I’d accumulated, rather than giving the rubbish to Jesus! He took my shame, the guilt and fears. In Him I am a new creation, so that in stead of acknowledging Satan’s right to steel and destroy. I declare what I now have and who I now am IN HIM.

Journaling your Christian Life

Image

images-6   “Talking with God, The Word” By Peter j Foster

You’re either a fan of journaling, or not.

    If not, let me try convert you to the benefits of this    growing Art of ‘communication with God.

First of all, please be assured this is not about     ‘automatic handwriting’, the sort practised by New Ager’s. This is for Born Again, Spirit-filled Believers who desire to talk to God and to hear God speaking to them – to develop their relationship with Father God and continue to seek Him.

I guess you could say that Journaling would help if you enjoy writing; but this is not necessary true. I kept a journal for many years before I became a Christian. I found it remarkably therapeutic in committing my thoughts, plans, ideas and concerns to paper. I love writing, but this is not about writing per se. It is about developing a relationship with Father God

So here goes with your first step in relating with God through Journaling.

1. Get yourself a handy writing pad; not too small, you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll fill it.

2. Find a convenient time of day to journal and a favourite place to spend time with God. (Actually it can be anywhere; cafe’s are my favourite place!)

3. Settle your mind. Pray. Welcome His presence. Perhaps read the Bible and meditate on His love for you.

4. Begin writing.

Begin writing what? You may ask.

Well, you could begin by asking God about something that concerns you. Write it all down. Get it off your chest. Detail it. Express any confusion, hurts, fears or whatever. And now wait to see what comes to mind, then write it down! Write it as it comes to you. Don’t worry about grammar, accuracy or scriptural relevance at this stage. You can always test it later with the Word of God and trusted friends/partner. The important thing is to get into the flow of writing, without feeling anyone looking over your shoulder!

You could begin with writing about how you feel. What’s troubling you, exciting you or challenging you. Just allow yourself to write freely. Let it all out. Hold nothing back. After all, no one is going to know about it except you and God. (Unless you lose your Journal, so guard it with your life!)

As an example, I often write my plans and ideas for ministry, outreach, business, relationships and finances. It really helps to get my thoughts out of my head and on to paper. Sometimes simply reading it back begins to inspire (from God) my thoughts, solutions, creative ideas. In response be ready to write down quickly what is coming to mind. It is so easy to forget what God is saying. – if you do not commit it quickly to paper.

There’s no need to analyse it at this stage what you have written. Just enjoy the spontaneity of writing from your mind and from your heart. And believe that God is right there with you – listening, reading your words and beginning to release solutions, answers to questions and encouraging remarks. He’s your Heavenly Father and desires that you flow in your relationship with Him.

In the Bible we read in John 10:27 that: “My sheep hear my voice…” That’s us! We hear God’s voice speaking to us. Yes, primarily God speaks to us through Scripture – but also spontaneously where the Lord wants us to apply Scripture to a particular life situation. His Word is tailored, as it were, to each of our circumstances. Which is why of course we must never assume a relationship with God outside of regular reading of the Bible.

In a ‘nutshell’, Spiritual Journaling is about what God is saying to you through your prayers, questions and understanding. The journaling process will sustain you in times of hardship, inspire creative solutions to problems and bring clarity and focus to what God is saying and doing in your life.

The writer Henri Nouwen wrote: “To my surprise, I never lost the ability to write. In fact, writing became part of my struggle for survival. It gave me the little distance from myself that I needed to keep from drowning in my despair.” (From the Book: Inner voice of Love.)

God has a treat in store for you!

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

The truth though is that if you only keep those plans tucked away inside the pages of your Bible, or hidden in the book shelf, you can pretty much say good-bye to those plans. What a tragic waste of potential!

I have good news for you – “You can have your cake and eat it!” “And enjoy it!”

But first we have to get rid of some religious mind set’s that we Christians tend to wallow in, well I do at least! So what better way to expose the lies of the flesh and the Devil than to recite out loud the Truth!

To be spoken out loud five times each two times a day….

“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13

“I press towards the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus,” (Phil 3:13)

“And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, (Eph 2:6)

TheLord is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27

My own Gifting, I think, is the ability and passion for making-up spontaneous words to gentle music, say during Ministry. I find myself reciting Scripture and prophetic utterance. It’s not that I’d planned it that way, it is simply the Holy Spirit joining in with us, or should I say me joining with Him.

I am Healed through Jesus!

Jesus took the blame and the shame for my sins – on my behalf! He died for me, the death that I should have died – such were my sins!

But how I have struggled with this truth. It’s like being handed an incredibly expensive luxury vehicle free of charge (An Aston Martin please Lord!) which is a totally unearned, undeserved and an unexpected favour. ‘A Gift out of the blue!’ You might say.

Christian Life Coaching

So when it comes to my body being sick, can I really accent the gift of Jesus’ atoning work on the Cross?  Jesus Himself took my sickness upon Himself? On my behalf.

There’s no way I can accept it Unless… I renew my mind to the truth that makes me free!

I need to meditate in my heart upon the truth. I begin to ‘see’ in my heart the promise of God’s healing grace working in my body.

The Bible tells us – ‘For as he thinks in his heart so is he..’ (Prov.23:7)

The imagination has a powerful role in bringing forth God’s promises of Grace, through faith in Jesus, the Word.

Imagine that!

Where there is no Vision the people perish (Proverbs 29:18)

“What is the Vision for my Business?”

images-1With pen and paper to hand I begin crafting a New Year’s Resolution concerning my ‘Christian Coaching Ministry.’ Initially I make a weak attempt to plan for 5 new clients every week; which means I would need to increase my Marketing activity by 50%

Is that possible? Yes, but only with a lot of hard work! … Or a miracle!

A little dis-heartened I sit back in my chair to peruse my environment. I’m seated in a favorite Cafe. Conversation’s flow freely here among the clicking of Lap Tops and clatter of coffee machines. It’s a place of comfort and inspiration. And yet, I’m still stuck! Eventually, my eyes are drawn to a chalked Black Board sign that reads – “Coffee doesn’t ask silly questions – Coffee Understands”

How often I sought the comfort of coffee, and the atmosphere that goes with it. But I now see that it’s not the false comfort of coffee nor the people that I hanker after but of the presence of God. For He alone is the Vision for my Business.

Hearing From God For your Christian Healing & Wholeness

images-7The primary means of Hearing from God for your Healing is through His Word.

I find that as I meditate on what I read in the Bible I begin to recognise His voice speaking to my Soul about many aspects of my life.

For example, on the subject of physical healing, I read over and over in The Word as to what God my Father say’s about healing. I become fully persuaded that Jesus Himself took upon His body my infirmities and pain – “And with His stripes I was healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

There is a caveat to this promise I believe. I have to be fully persuaded that what I read in the Bible – His Word, is true!

One of the primary schemes of the Enemy of our Soul is to cause us to disbelieve what God say’s is true. He will attempt to bring up fears, failure, hurts, rejection and sins from the past. All of which can fester in the soul causing more ‘Dis – ease’

The un-renewed soul, the home of the mind, will and emotions will attempt to make us feel unworthy in receiving our unearned favour from the Lord. A renewed soul, on the other hand, will enable us to receive the flow of life that brings freedom and healing.

I believe this flow comes about by meditating on His Word, Worshipping Him, knowing who we are In Christ Jesus and declaring the Truth that makes us free!
