DIGGING A NEW WELL – LEADERSHIP

DIGGING A NEW WELL!

It’s time to dig a new well.

Many times in prayer the Lord will give me a vision. This morning I see a shovel going into the ground.

I heard the Lord say, it’s time to dig a new well and leave the past behind! Philippians 3:13-14 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

According to Wikipedia.org Water wells typically range from 3 to 18 metres (9.8–59.1 ft) deep, but in some areas can go deeper than 900 metres (3,000 ft) so the fresh water can come in. A lot of times an old well may become contaminated. That is what your past will do if you allow pain or regret to remain in your heart. When these memories resurface they seek to contaminate your future. God wants you to focus on new and fresh things daily. The Bible tells us to be transformed by the renewing our mind!

This new well is for you to discover, as you leave the past behind, a clear, fresh vision the Lord wants to give you for direction in leadership.

Digging isn’t easy and does take time, but the first step is your act of faith. As you begin to put your foot on the shovel and push it into new ground, God will help you. Soon your digging will be replaced with equipment that will do the work for you. In other words, things will start to come together, and you will have all you need to complete each phase in the area of leadership the Lord has placed inside of you. Then your well will become fresh and living water for others who thirst.

In the Old Testament we read about the woman at the well who came to draw water. The well was a location either outside the city walls or if fortunate, inside the city, for the women to come and draw water they needed to survive. You have living water and leadership skills that contain life giving principles for others!

Today seek God for fresh and new revelation of where He wants to take or what He wants to reveal to you as a leader. Take a step of faith! Put your shovel in the ground and start digging. Ask, seek and knock, God will answer!

Your well has the trips you want to take, the dreams in your heart, revelation, knowledge, wisdom, understanding, gifts, talents, life-giving principles to share with others. Don’t wait. Start digging today.

Leaders arise, DIG and find a new spring in your life!

DREAM WITH GOD!

street talk 1

I am NOT of this world. I am in the world but not of the world. My mind, soul and spirit should respond to heavenly visions that God gives me. Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost. What we lost because of sin and our sin nature needs to be redeemed in order to live out God’s full plans and purposes for our lives, and that can only be accomplished as we are led by the Spirit of God.

We must submit our will to His will, so that we can see and live out the heavenly vision He calls us to. He became poor so that we would become rich. He gave gifts unto men and gave us power over all the enemy. So why not move forward into your heavenly call and ask God to give you his dreams and plans for your life.

I remember when God called me to write a tract about salvation in plain English and to call it Street talk, so that anyone could understand the message of salvation. I had no idea how to accomplish this. I did not consider myself to be a writer.

Two years later, the vision was still in my mind and my heart. I begin sharing this with a printer that printed materials I needed for marketing. He said Cathy I have a whole skid of paper I will give you, if you will just pay for the printing. I didn’t have the money for printing, but after sharing what the printer told me, my friend said she just received a check and she would give me 3000 dollars for the printing! My mom’s friend knew someone at her church who’s son was a graphic artist. He created the drawing that I gave him from the picture that was in my mind.

All of this was accomplished and I didn’t have one word to go on the tract. I told God I didn’t know how to do this. I asked him to give me a thought and he did, so I started writing. The words fit perfectly on the paper and I received 50,000 tracks!

I worked for a Christian publishing company at the time. Two chaplains came to the publishing house at different times. One of them was going back to Iraq. He asked me if I had a tract that he could have to put on the table because the men were grabbing up whatever they could about God, knowing they might lose their lives. I told him I did, but I didn’t tell him that I wrote it. The other chaplain who came in was from California. I also distributed them in the juvenile correctional facility for girls that I went to weekly. So the tracks that God told me to write, went around the world!

So many testimonies have happened since then. God is so good.

Dream with God let him so you what he wants you to do. Then began to open your mouth and share it with others. He will open the doors and your vision will appear before your very eyes, for His glory.

I would love to hear from you if you have a dream or vision that God has given you.

Until we meet again DREAM WITH GOD!!

Life Of A Leader

Are You Living The Life Of A Leader Or In The Life Of A Slave?

harriet-tubman-tells-it-how-it-is.png

If you have received the Lord Jesus Christ in your heart, you have the spirit of leadership within you. God has given you authority and power for his plans and purposes for your life, and to impact the life of others. The problem with many who are supposed to be walking in authority and leadership is, they still have the mentality of a slave.

Paul said your attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ and be renewed in the spirit of your mind. That doesn’t mean we are supposed to have preconceived ideas of our own, it means we are supposed to be led by the Spirit. We have to change the way we think!

We know that the subconscious rules our natural thinking. The Bible says as a man thinks so is he. So whatever we believe about ourselves, becomes true to us. The life of a true leader believes every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God, and they change their thoughts to His thoughts and walk in His authority!!

The right attitude of a leader is humility. That doesn’t mean you are a slave! Definition of humility: HUMIL’ITY, n. L. humilitas.1. In ethics, freedom from pride and arrogance; humbleness of mind; a modest estimate of one’s own worth. In theology, humility consists in lowliness of mind; a deep sense of one’s own unworthiness in the sight of God, self-abasement, penitence for sin, and submission to the divine will. Before honor is humility. Prov.15. It means you’re willing to be led and have a teachable spirit to lead others.

To become a leader we have to have the right mental conditioning. We have to allow the Holy Spirit to be our teacher and guide through the Word of God and prayer. Through right mental conditioning , the Holy Spirit will train us to be a leader and to walk in authority.

The great leaders in the Bible believed by faith. They were not defeated by their circumstances and did not embrace the mentality of a slave, but they believed and trusted in God!

Hebrews 11: 33 (NKJV) … who through faith subdued kingdoms, worked righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weaknesses were made strong, became violent in battle, turned to flight the armies of the aliens, women received they’re dead raised to life again.

The source of your thoughts will become your life. Let the Word of God dwell in you richly. Surrender the slave mentality, recondition your mind with the powerful tools of the Word of God and prayer, and through His Spirit, become the true leader God intended you to be.

Leadership Skills To Stay In Business

In order to STAY IN BUSINESS you have to develop leadership skills required for the entrepreneur!

PUT GOD FIRST! Matthew 6:33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. REALIZE that God can show you things that NOBODY can! He said in Jeremiah 33:3 (KJV) Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.
Failure is NOT an option! You have to develop a leadership mindset to be absolutely certain, that failure is not an option – Every single day!!

God gets the glory! Do you lack the confidence you need? Have confidence of your faith IN GOD to work through you. HE gets the glory!! Phil 2:13 (KJV) For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Switch – Change the way you think in a moment’s notice. This is a requirement to let go of the past and stay out of fear. the Bible says in Luke 9:62 (NIV) Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.” I definitely don’t want to look back on my past. I want to always look forward. I use the image of a light switch to keep me focused anytime I sense my mind going off in a direction that it’s not supposed to. I vividly turn on a light switch as a reminder to switch back my thoughts to the path of light that I am supposed to be on, and to continue pursuing the vision God gave me.

USE YOUR TIME WISELY! Spend most of your time on what you are passionate about. Develop new skills, advance in training, focus on your vision, and make preparation. Do these things regardless if you get paid to do them or not to begin with, and the money will come, because what you are passionate about and your vision, is what you were created for. Proverbs 22:29 (ESV) Do you see a man skillful in his work? He will stand before kings; he will not stand before obscure men.

TAKE ACTION! The Bible says Proverbs 6:6-8 Go to the ant, O sluggard, Observe her ways and be wise, Which, having no chief, Officer or ruler, Prepares her food in the summer And gathers her provision in the harvest. Do you ever see ants sleeping or just doing nothing? They are always moving, always driven by their destiny. They don’t lack direction. Each ant has it’s own purpose and will fight to the death to defend it. Get moving towards your destiny, Take the necessary action!!

DON’T COMPARE YOURSELF TO OTHERS! Learn what you are supposed learn and do what YOU are supposed to do.

START WHERE YOU ARE! Don’t worry about what you don’t know or haven’t learned, JUST START. Put yourself through your own boot camp. Be the master of your destiny!

IF YOU DO WHAT YOU GOD CALLED YOU TO DO, HE WILL TAKE CARE OF THE REST AND HE WILL EVEN SEND THE AID THAT YOU NEED TO COMPLETE IT!
Phil 1:6 (NIV) being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Tips to Conquer – Focus Tip

FOCUS TIP

Use A Timer!

Whenever I want to stop letting my mind wander and really get things done, I use a timer!  Using a timer is a great way to stay Focused on the task at hand.

  1. First decide!  Make a decision what is the most important thing to be done and decide you are going to dedicate a certain amount of time to the project immediately and allow NO distractions.
  2. Make a list of all things you would like to do today and decide what time you will do them.  It’s OK if you decide to do something else first that is on your list, but make certain you do the most important thing of the day, first.  As you think of more things, just add them to the list and know you will get to them.  Feel good that you wrote them down.
  3. Set the timer for an allotted time.
  4. Use small amounts of time, this helps you stay focused and work faster, knowing the timer is going to go off.
  5. Try to beat the clock unless you are working on thought provoking projects.  When I use a timer I am so much faster and more motivated.
  6. Don’t try to work on something you dread without taking a break.  Taking a break will help refresh you.  ENJOY the break.  Use self talk during the break and remember why you are working on the project,
  7. Use a timer for the break and don’t go over!
  8. After the break, back to work on the project or go to the next one.

timers

There are many timers available on the market today.  I have these three that I really like.  One is a timer that has 5 different buttons that I can set a certain amount of time to.  It also has a recorder on it, so if I want to motivate myself, I can record something to remind me of why I am doing a project or remind myself of the how the day will look at the end, as I pictured in the first place.

The second one I have is a digital.  I like it better than the egg timers, because I can check seconds, and minutes easier.

The third one has a string so you can wear around your neck, if you don’t want to mess with going back to the timer to reset it.

Want to stay focused and get more done?  Use a timer!
