About My Approach
God invites us to live from His abundance. Most Christ-followers understand that the abundant life is not just a promise it’s a reality for right now, but still, it’s a hard concept to wrap the mind around. We live in a world, where the effects of brokenness touch us from every angle. None of us can say that we haven’t experienced pain and difficulty. And in those places, where is God’s promise of abundant life?(John 10:10)
Biblical Life Coaching
Have you ever heard of biblical life coaching? It’s different from mentoring, spiritual direction, and counseling yet has some strong similarities. The goal of Biblical Life Coaching is to come alongside and shoulder with a person during a process. It focuses on the present and the future.
So, a Biblical Life Coach will help a person discern an awareness of what’s currently happening right now, identify barriers, and develop a clear strategy for moving ahead. This process will likely draw from a large toolbox of resources, which may include counseling if, for example, one of the barriers is past trauma. And all of this is done upon the foundation of what God says, and of course, covered in prayer.
Doesn’t that sound good? This is an invitation to be shouldered with during difficulty (at whatever level it may be). The strength of a Biblical Life Coach rests in the LORD, because even when he/she doesn’t have the answer, God does. This is about journeying with someone, who walks with you, helping you find a way to get to where you want to go as you follow the leading of the Holy Spirit.
How do I find that?
In some respects, you may have experienced that in some measure with a Pastor or trusted spiritual mentor, but a Biblical Life Coach can help us move beyond the hurdles that keep us stuck. We all have coping methods, but wouldn’t it be nice to overcome the barriers that bind?
In Jeremiah 12:5, many of us are worn out from running with men and we are not experiencing the abundant life of running in freedom like wild horses. When life gets a little crazy and we have stepped out into to the rough things of life like the thickets by the Jordan we are getting ran over by life and the devil whom has come to steal, kill, and destroy. Lets figure out how to walk in the victory of the Jesus Christ even when we are not in safe country. (credit to Maureen Brown)
