Do you love Jesus? How much? For instance do you love him more than your best friend? Do you love him more than you spouse or significant other? Do you love him more than your children? Do you love him more than your grandchildren?
Not a fair question, you say. Those are real people. Jesus isn’t a real person. But He was and is. He is not standing here where you can touch him but, He walked on this earth, lived as a person, rose again and is now at the right hand of His father. You can feel his presence helping you guiding you every day.
He said your love for him compared to your love for family should be so much greater that your love for family would be like what we know as hatred. He wasn’t telling us to hate our family but to love Him exceedingly more.
When my grandma was alive, each time I’d leave her I’d say, “Grandma, I love you.” She would always answer, “If you loved me even half as much as I love you, it would be enough.” I believe that’s some of the concept here. She loved me with abundance. She knew the depth of her love. She knew I loved her in my way and my way, though not as great as hers, was still love.
If this makes little sense, let me explain some more. A part of my life purpose is to come alongside women providing tools, ways, mechanisms to help them fall deeper in love with Jesus Christ—to help them walk step by step in an ever increasing closer spiritual relationship with the God of this universe.
One tool I use is life purpose coaching, a one-on-one conversational time based on the curriculum 10 Conversations With Women. It consists of 10 hour-long weekly meetings with homework in between.
Ask me and I’ll be happy to share more about this awesome opportunity for growth. Other life purpose coaches charge for this service. And I guess soon I probably should do that as well. However, for now I’m learning. So, for free, you get me! I can point you to others more experienced than I who will coach you if you want someone who really knows what they are doing and you don’t mind paying for the service. Or you can donate a sum to a worthy cause in my name if you like.
During coaching sessions, we have fun. We do dig deep. We laugh. We cry. We get real. If you aren’t willing to do any of those things, you probably aren’t ready to really discover and uncover new things about yourself. Basically, life purpose coaching is a time when you get your life in order, in the order you want it, based on direction from the Holy Spirit. No one tells you what to do or how to get to where you want to go. No one tells you where you want to go. You do that with guidance from the One Who is always there knocking on your heart’s door wanting to fellowship with you.
For those interested in becoming life coaches, the first step is going through the coaching process. So come on board. I do have initial information to go over with you. I can take on only a few more women now, so let me know if you are interested. I will have some forms for you to fill out to see if you are a candidate for life purpose coaching. Get ready to enjoy the journey!
