Faith Blog




Some of you may know I am Life Coaching along with my wife and some friends. We are guided by a simple word: COACH.


Our heart’s desire is to ask people like you powerful questions that engage your life to make the improvements you desire. You decide your goal, we ask about your goal, and the Holy Spirit and you find new answers! Let’s get a hot drink and get started with your coaching session in a blog…

Desired Outcomes

In what area do you want to move forward today? What is your vision for your life? Life Vision is a big, sometimes overwhelming, desire. What specific vision areas are in the Word for you today?


How does Leviticus 24:1- 25:46 relate to you in the area of debt? Picture yourself out of debt.  How would you live? How would you show thankfulness? What does an offering look like for  you?  How do you demonstrate being the servant-leader of Mark 10: 32-52? What would others say about your leadership style?

Assume Psalm 45 demonstrates the Lord Jesus as the King and the Church as His bride. What blessing do you identify with? What is your vision for victory? How does the Lord see you?  What is your vision for you proclaiming His greatness in the coming years to the nations?  Anything else?


Pick 2-3 applications that you can do to move forward. Pick specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time limited actions.  These are my action steps ...

- Debt happens… so plan out a path, work on the budget this week.

- Be thankful to - (I named a person) today.

- Relate to people and honor Christ… talk to one person on my CPR card soon.

- He is working in me and as His child I am victorious. Rest more about my future career.

- Share Jesus with my family. Share the personal relationship I have with Him. Pray for the continuation of a family spiritual legacy.  Specifically read more bible stories and pray with my grandkids this week.



What is your Highlight for today? 

Today’s reading can be summed up with Proverbs 10: 22 “The blessing from the Lord makes a person rich, and He adds no sorrow to it.” Today, His Word is rich in so many ways! Need help with a life vision? Use an accountability friend or Life Coach to ask you some powerful questions.

In Mark 10:13, we see where the disciples were rebuking the kids that were coming to Jesus. But Jesus saw what the disciples were doing and told them, "Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them for they belong to the kingdom of God." Jesus was using an Old Testament notion of covenant solidarity. These small children belong in the kingdom initially because of the faith of their parents, though they must exercise faith personally as soon as they can inherit all the covenant blessings. God’s kingdom belongs to small children, not because they are innocent but because they model true believers who have nothing to bring and everything to receive.


In Mark 10:17,  we see a rich young man ask what he needs to have eternal life? Jesus told him, "go sell all your things and give to the needy," but the rich young man was not happy with this answer and ran away disheartened. Jesus looked around and said to his disciples, "How difficult it will be for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God."  Jesus said to them, "How difficult I is to enter the kingdom of God! It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God!" Jesus is using an excellent example of hyperbolic language, expressing the impossibility (v27) The suggestion that there was a small gate in ancient Judea called “the needle’s eye” through which camels could barely pass is unsupported and trivializes Jesus’ illustration. Salvation is beyond the reach of human achievement for rich and poor. It is from the Lord through sovereign divine initiative not by human effort (Psa. 3:8,68:19,20, Eph. 2:8,9) He can achieve what is humanly impossible. (Gen. 18:14, Luke 1:37)
