Discovery, Confidence and Forward Motion



Discovery, Confidence and Forward Motion are three areas of life a coaching relationship will help someone experience. 

It is such a great feeling to discover a truth and way forward.  One great discovery was uncovered a year ago when I journeyed into politics.  It was an unsuccessful journey, vote wise, but highly successful discovery wise.

Just one of the many discoveries was how difficult it is to officially enter and run for any office.  While knocking on doors, walking through my town, introducing myself to constituents, I asked God to help me never criticize any politician again.  This decision was tested in this last national election, and I am thankful to be able to say I honor all who enter the race for any political office.

I am noticing how some people are so caustically opinionated about a politician that they disagree with.  I also see, hear and read some very nasty opinions about public servants.  My little opinion is that anyone who feels so entitled to publicly state his or her hurtful comments really ought to run for office. 

Inner strife will hurt confidence and forward motion more so than the person that is the subject of their scorn.

James 2:9 says “if you favor some people over others, you are committing a sin

Vs. 13 says, “There will be no mercy for those who have not shown mercy to others”

James 3:16 says, “For where strife is, there is confusion and every evil work”

Consider the possibility that your own opinionated heart issues are holding your back from discovery, confidence and forward motion.

If so, make it simple, and grow in understanding of “repentance from dead works” and grow in “faith in God” (Heb. 6:1-3). 

And… if you would like to be a part of a community of God’s people, that are on the journey of loving God, others and life, check us out at http://viennaag.com/.
