04 Apr Announcing “Flourish!”
You were meant to flourish. Like seed scattered on fertile soil that takes root and produces a harvest of thirty…sixty…one hundred times more than what was sown, your life was meant to flourish! I’m talking about fully functioning and thriving in that particular place where you have a profound influence for Christ on this planet, at this time, in your generation… now! That’s the abundant life Jesus talks about in John 10:10. It’s life to the fullest, at the height of one’s influence, combining the talents and gifts He’s given you with your unique life experiences in order to reach your full potential.
Flourishing is a life changing, generation-changing, world-changing impact for Christ. Sounds a bit overwhelming, doesn’t it? A bit scary? Maybe a lot scary? Yet you and I were redeemed by the blood of Christ and left on this planet to make just exactly that kind of an impact. And while it may sound like a lot to take on, you have the potential to do it. Yet many of us never reach that potential. I’m convinced that part of the reason we never reach that place of fully flourishing for Christ is that we haven’t cultivated the essential skills necessary to do so. Skills every believing, flourishing woman of God needs:
1. A Story to Tell:
* To communicate your personal story of the difference Jesus Christ has made and is making in your life (1 Peter 3:15).
2. A Love to Testify to:
* To able to confidently communicate a winsome presentation of the Gospel…to anyone (John 3:16).
3. A Savior to Stand For:
* To be able to boldly and unashamedly explain why Jesus is the way, the truth and the life (Luke 9:26; Romans 1:16).
Sister, it is my passion to help you reach your full potential in Christ and to flourish for Him where He has you right this very moment. It doesn’t have to be on some big platform or in some bright light… it simply has to be in Him and through Him where we live and move and exist and flourish.
…you are greatly and dearly loved by the King!
