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

Coffee Time Article that will challenge you in your Planning for this coming Year.

“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.

What is the Difference between a Christian Life Coach, Counsellor or Mentor?

400SnowFamilyChristian Life Coaching is about helping the Client get from where they are now to where they want to be expressed as a Goal. Then helping them take action to fulfil their Goal through patient questioning and active listening. Prayer and the application of faith through the Word of God is encouraged together with accountability in fulfilling tasks. A variety of ‘tools’ may be drawn on, such as the application of Mind Renewal, Forgiveness, Disappointment and Unresolved Hurts, as a means of helping Clients identify and achieve their defined Goals.

Counselling is a type of ‘talking therapy’ which involves a person discussing emotional difficulties and problems in a supportive and confidential environment. The Counselor does not give advise nor be judgemental, rather their role is to listen to the client with empathy
so as to help them understand their feelings and behavior Hopefully the client finds their own solutions to their problem.

Mentoring A Mentor is an accomplished and experienced professional/expert who has a desire to help, to guide and develop a junior or more advanced person.

Briefly Counseling is there to sort out issues, Coaching helps you negotiate hurdles, whilst Mentoring shows you how to do it for yourself!

The Benefits of Waiting on The Lord

cropped-images-1.jpg

“But those that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” (Isaiah 40:31)

Effortless Progress…

Have you noticed there are people with all kinds of challenging situations going on in their lives and yet they are not dragged down to a lower level of fear. On the contrary, they seem to be positively soaring above their circumstances.

Could it be that they’ve learned to emulate the wisdom of the Eagle – soaring above the high places of world; connecting with the thermals that will take them even higher and higher! A place of effortless mastery.

It is from this place of dominance that the Eagle plummet’s from a great hight to pluck from the skies it’s unsuspecting Pray. In no time at all it’s all over!

So what can we learn from the Wisdom of the Eagles?

Your ‘Thermal’ is a place of authority and grace. It is clearly the place of your anointing and  Gifts. Your ‘Thermal’ could well be for Worship – songs flowing from your heart to the congregation. Your ‘Thermal’ could be for ‘Leadership – encouraging and provoking. Your “Thermal’ Could even be for ‘Finances’ ‘Prayer for Healing, ‘Prophetic Songs’ and for ‘Correction and Rebuke!’

No matter what your Gifting, In Christ you will soar like Wings as Eagles.

The Journey of a Lifetime

Jesus say’s “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life” (Scrip; John 14:6)

With so much competing for our attentions these days it is very easy to get our eyes off the purpose for our journey which is – to know Jesus more!

So, here are some Biblical ‘keys’ to help you on your way.

1. Be filled with the fresh oil of the Holy Spirit. Welcome Him, honour Him and follow Him.

2. Study The Map Book of Life – ‘The Holy Bible’. There you will find the quickest  and most effective route to reaching your Destination ‘In Christ’ Jesus.

3, Let go of where you’ve been and keep your eyes on where you are going.

4. Have your lights shining and your indicators clearly illuminating your direction, so that others know where you are going.

5. Let go of where you have been and embrace where you are now. Always ready to move on as and when The Holy Spirit directs.

6. Ensure your exhaust is removing toxic syptoms of stress etc.

7. Your Speed, not too fast so as not to enjoy the journey and not too slow so as to endanger others.

8. Regular maintenance and cleaning so as to shine and radiate Jesus.

Enjoy your Journey!

Seeing and Believing Your Christian Dreams

http://christianlifecoach-peterjfoster.org/free-trial-costs/

Is there a vision or a dream you are yet to fulfill; a passion that has not yet seen the light of day?

800px-Sunrise-Daytona-Beach-FLYou may say, “it’s just too difficult to even begin doing something positive with my idea. There’s always so much going on, how do I find time to work on my Dream? It’s just an idea anyway! And there’s plenty of ideas out there these days. Who in their right mind would take my idea on anyway? There’s no real substance to it – just wishful thinking!”

Yes, at this stage it is just wishful thinking. Every great idea has to start somewhere.

As a young man , living with my parents in a large urban sprawl in the UK I had a dream of living by the seaside. I saw myself surfing, having fun and running my own business and playing my guitar in restaurants and cafe’s. It was a dream so far from the reality of my life I might as well dreamed of being the first person on the Moon! But I was unperturbed. I would draw pictures and pictures of my future life and pin them on my bedroom wall. I saw, in my ‘minds-eye’ the small Devonshire community I would be living amongst. I saw the house I’d be living in and the office I’d be working from. In my minds-eye I was running a graphic design and print agency. I saw myself singing in local Restaurants, Pubs and Clubs. I would meditate upon my new life over and over again. In fact it became so real in my heart it just ‘had to’ come about!

A year or so later I was living the exact dream; and loving every minute of it! . But is this ‘Biblical’ you might ask? Or is it simply New Age? In the Bible The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you (Genesis 12) He had to see it by faith in his heart before he saw it by sight.

Again the Bible say;s “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Prov 23:7) Question: Is this the missing key in your prayer life? If so, begin to seek the Lord for His plans and purpose for your life. Read again the exploits God’s people and marvel at what God did through them because they believed.

Do you have a Dream or Vision to Fulfil? Or if not, maybe you could ask Him.

Biblical Restoration – it’s about enjoying the Journey.

'67_Jaguar_E-Type_(Ottawa_British_Car_Show_'10)

Not long after becoming a Christian, the Lord showed me in a dream that it was as though I’d been rescued from the ‘scrap heap’ of life, and just like a ‘Classic Car’ I’d been given a new identity! In truth I’d been given a new lease of life: I’d been born again into a family of ‘exclusive Classics’ – the Body of Christ.

And so my journey of Christian Restoration began.

Amazingly I was now considered to be something of great value, a new creation in Christ Jesus and it hadn’t cost me a penny! But, there was work to do.
I needed to go through a complete process of restoration – getting rid of what had been lost due to sin and the effects of The Fall! In fact, I was to become something I’d never been in ‘the natural’ – nor would ever have been! I was to return to what God had planned for me from before the beginning of time – a brand New Creation in Christ Jesus!

Christian Restoration, however, is no joy ride! It is painstakingly slow, can hurt the ego, challenge our perceptions and offend our self centredness. No matter how we try to speed things up, God does not do a quick ‘codge-up’ job on our lives. He is a perfectionist and knows exactly what we are truly like – made in His image and likeness. He wants only that we be Blessed so that we can give Him all the Glory.

The first thing I found was that God gave me a new ‘Motor’ – a new Drive if you will. I was no longer to be driven by fear, performance or pride, but by His love alone.

The Lord began to show me my foundations were rotten – just like the foundations of an old car. He gave me a new ‘Galvanised Stainless Steel Chassis’ – the foundation of His Word, which was to become the ‘bedrock’ of every other Grace.

What followed was the beginning of a work of Restoration on my nervous system. I felt He was re-wiring my entire life with His power, love and His peace and Christian mind renewal.

He gave me new headlights, so to speak, that I might see more clearly where I’m going. He also gave me new Indicators so others might see where I’m going too, and may even want to follow me!

I received a new exhaust system so as to release toxic waste more efficiently: the toxins of hurts, fears, anger and bitterness.
I received a new water-cooling system to help maintain a constant Spiritual temperature; and fresh oil, the Oil of His Spirit – together with regular oil/filter changes to keep me well lubricated and the Gifting flowing.

He gave me a new upholstered interior so that I might feel comfortable with my new identity in Christ Jesus. And a new paint job so that even people around might see the difference!

He gave me a new Map Book and Instruction Manual, to be found in prayer and praise, that I might understand where it is He wants me to go and how to get there.

And finally He gave me a new ‘badge’ – His ‘Marque’ of quality – the Name of Jesus; the Name that would symbolise forever my pedigree and esteem as a new creation in His Kingdom.

Christian Restoration takes time and persistence. A skillful Christian Life Coach will help with discovering who you truly are in Christ Jesus, and will travel the journey of restoration with you. This truly is Christian Restoration!

The Bible say’s “Two are better than one.” Sometimes we simply need each other in the process of Sanctification for the Lord.

Understanding Heavenly Encounters.

I am happy to include a Guest Post from my friend Jane Parker.

Your Christian Caling

Your Prophetic Calling

Jane is a Christian Minister in the Prophetic. I hope you enjoy!

Prophetic Vision One night in my childhood I woke up straight after having had a dream of an angel coming down the garden path to the front door of our house. It was so vivid I got up in the night and ran to the bathroom window to look out at the garden path! I found my dad already looking out of the same window having had the same dream as me! We both stared out of the window and then returned to bed disappointed that we had not seen the angel.

The following morning I awoke to the sound of my mum laughing and shouting up the stairs “Your angel has been and gone and you both missed him!” I jumped out of bed and ran downstairs to find a parcel had arrived in the post from ‘Angel’ Ministries. No doubt they prayed for an angel to deliver the CDs and dad and I had seen it prophetically in dreams!

 

Be Strong in The Lord and in the power of His Might

 I have discovered that to become strong in the Lord means I am not to make any effort to be strong in my self!

images-1In fact I’ve found the very opposite to be true! I have discovered that to be strong in the Lord Jesus is to deny my own strength and trust in His strength alone. His ability to get things done is far more effective than mine.

Read the following Verse… “And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed; In Him I am strengthened with might according to His glorious power.” 2 Cor :9-8

But as soon as I flip over to my own strength, I am only as able as I can be according to my human ability – which in my case is really very small indeed!

The ‘key’ to unlocking God’s Power and wisdom is to release Jesus by faith. In so doing it is no longer I that lives but Jesus Christ that lives. 1.Galatians 2:20 “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me: and that [life] which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in Jesus,…

I’m no longer wasting time trying to make myself something special. The reality is that In Christ Jesus I already am something special! In Him I am a son of the Most High God. It only now needs for me to believe and release this Truth by continually looking to Jesus. And His Word.

What do you want Jesus to do for you? Mark 10:51

origin_266023763-1“You do not have, because you do not ask God.” James 4:1-8

The trouble with so many of us Believers is that we just can’t believe that God is speaking and listening to us – personally!

He speaks to us personally through the Bible and through our thoughts and circumstances. He does so because He really loves to fellowship with us and longs to help us in our times of trouble.

And yet…

I used to think: for the Lord God of Heaven and Earth to actually want to walk and talk with little old me is like asking the Queen of England to stop her cavalcade and actually summons me for a one on one chat.

It just doesn’t happen that way and so I don’t even spend time dwelling on it.

And yet over the days and weeks I kept hearing in my ‘inner man’ His words: “What do you want me to do for you?”

So, I took me a writing pad and began a long and detailed list of all my needs related to work, relationships, and ill health. Ill health being my greatest need. After all if you don’t have good health you don’t have the energy to do anything!

I kept writing and writing and writing! I listed specific desires I had as a new Christian: A wife, a Ministry, a good business, great friends, money and health. All the usual things.

Exhausted, some time later I packed up my pad and pen and headed back home.

It wasn’t until I reached home that I finally began to realise the objective as a Christian was not to aquire things but a Person – the Person of Jesus Christ. What I truly want and what Jesus wants is Relationship! He’ll provide everything else – including good health.

Understanding Sowing and Reaping

The Key to Abundant Living

Lenzkirch-KeyWhen you stand back and look at your life as an impartial observer you begin to see definite patterns taking place related to your business, your relationships, finances, health and peace of mind.

For example, the attitude you had towards your mother could be the same attitude your daughter now has towards you. The judgements you made against others for their supposed wrong doings are now the same judgements you are receiving from others.

This is the law of ‘sowing and reaping’. It works for good and it works for bad. It is entirely neutral.

The really cool thing about understanding the dynamics behind the principal of sowing and reaping is that you can begin to make choices as to what you want to reap, depending upon what you sow. In other words you can learn how to harvest the crop that you want – and not any old crop that comes along.

So, for example, if like a farmer you sow potatoes, you will reap potatoes. If you want weeds you just do nothing and the weeds do their own thing anyway. If you are now feeling a hapless victim of your random and seemingly un-planned sowing and reaping. All is not lost.

As a qualified ‘farmer of the soul’ I help many folk begin seeing ‘by faith’ the crop they want in their life and accordingly set about preparing the good soil of their hearts to accommodate their dream. It is also worth while ensuring that what you say, during this stage of sowing and reaping, is what you actually want in your heart and therefore, in reality.

“Christian Life Coaching” Testimony

“Erich Diegel” : Testimony of Christian Life Coaching

Abide in the Vine

“I can truly say that these 3 sessions were really helpful for my life. I could see how Peter was trying to help me to find the answers myself by asking the right questions.”

“I am a person that likes to do different things all at once and that is why I sometimes lose my focus for what my vision or goal really is about. I felt like Peter was really helping me to define that goal and make appropriate steps towards it.”

“He helped my imagination to go wild and see the possibilities instead of why it couldn’t work out. Peter was always very positive and encouraging towards my dream/vision. I could really feel that he understood where I am coming from and where I could go and need to go.”

“I will definitely recommend Peter as a Life coach to others if they need one, because it really helped me a lot. And who knows maybe I need his help again, than I always know I can count on his help. Peter is a great man of God and is helping the body of Christ to grow and individuals to trust and believe God for the impossible.”
