With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
Job 12:13 KJV
Good Morning! It’s spread the love Friday! What will you do to make others feel special? I always love Friday because we can wear jeans to work. Today, I added a pair of snazzy boots to the outfit. It gives me a little giggle inside.
Have you ever needed someone you could talk to? I mean someone you know you can trust and say whatever is bothering you, and not worry about hurting their feelings? Have you ever had anyone you could talk to that did not judge you, or stab you in the back? Isn’t it great to know that our sweet Lord fills the position at any moment in time. Yet, sometimes we need to talk to a person who understands. Someone that we don’t have to wonder about loyalty, hurting feelings, or anything else.
Throughout my life I have had amazing counselors, leaders, mentors and coaches, and I have found that I do much better in every area of my life when I have them. It’s like having a personal cheerleader to help me through my day. Someone who cares about me and puts me first when they are speaking with me. They also give me a gentle push in the right direction to keep me accountable. The types of coaches I have had has varied from professional, to physical/emotional health to weight loss. It may not be for everyone, but it works for me.
This morning I hurried to prepare for work so that I would have an opportunity to speak to my Weight Watchers coach. She is amazing. I had a bad day yesterday, but was still able to stay within my rollover points. Her words to me after providing suggestions for the weekend were “you never really have a bad day, if you are doing your best.” Wow! I know it was a small thing to say, but I feel like there aren’t any temptations big enough to tempt me now.
God is our coach at all time, but I believe he understands when we need a little extra help. That’s why we have ministers, counselors and various kinds of coaches in our lives. My first stop in the help department is God. Then, I pray Matthew 9:38 that the Lord of the harvest “will send forth labourers into his harvest” to guide me.
Hope you have a wonderful Friday! Stay blessed!
