Self-Care v. Soul-Care

REPOST 6/29/2021

There has been a lot of talks lately about self-care, especially for women and specifically for mothers who tend to have busy schedules that include taking care of kids, husband, house, work, etc. 

I definitely believe it’s important for us all to make self-care a priority as the saying goes, you can’t pour from an empty cup. So putting yourself first and taking care of yourself is important to not just your own well-being but for the people who are close to you.  

In this post, I will be talking about not just self-care but specifically soul-care, what does it look like to take care of your soul on a consistent basis?

Chronos Time v. Kairos Time

REPOST 6/15/2021

Last week on the blog I discussed the difference between busy work v life’s work and how a large percentage of our time on earth will be spent working, so it’s important to make sure you are doing your life’s work and not just busy work. If you missed the post, be sure to check it out.

This week I want to explore the definition of time and go a little deeper on the topic of how we spend our time. I recently have been becoming more aware of the concept of Kairos. According to Wikipedia, Kairos is an Ancient Greek word meaning the right, critical, or opportune moment. The ancient Greeks had two words for time: Chronos and Kairos. The former refers to chronological or sequential time, while the latter signifies a proper or opportune time for action.

Human Being v. Human Doing

REPOST- 6/22/21

When you first meet someone at a networking event, one of the first things that you might ask is “So, what do you do?” What we do plays so much of a large part of who we are that as a society we tend to focus on what we do instead of how we are being.  We would never ask someone “How are you being?” we would however say “How are you doing?”  The concept and fact that we are human beings and not human doings is so important that I decided to focus on this topic this week.    

I remember at an event that I was hosting several years ago one of the attendees mentioned that she created a “being list” in addition to a “doing list”.  This concept always stuck out to me because I thought Wow! that’s such a good idea! We are so used to creating daily “To do” lists with all the things we need to get done, but have we stopped to create a daily “To be” list with all the ways we want to feel and show up in the world?

In this post, we will focus on human being v human doing.

Busy Work v. Life’s Work

REPOST FROM 6/8/2021

Did you know that your time is one of your most valuable assets?  During our lifetime we will spend a large percentage of our time working on our jobs.  In fact, it is estimated that the average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime.

So considering this, it would make sense that we choose a job or career that we find enjoyable and impactful.  However, many people work in jobs or even careers that they don’t even enjoy for months or even years!

It’s so easy to get stuck in a cycle of doing work that we don’t enjoy if we think of a job as a way to make money to pay bills, but I believe strongly that God did not put us on the earth to pay bills and die!  He has given each of us a bigger purpose and He desires us to use our talents, abilities, gifts, and skills (I like to call our T.A.G.S.) to do purpose-driven work which is our life’s work.

So how do we identify the difference between “busy work” and our “life’s work“?  I attempt to break it down in this post.

Good Idea v God Idea

REPOST FROM 6/1/2021

A couple of years ago, I was on an interview and I was asked, “What do you think is the difference between a good idea and God’s idea?”  The interviewer felt like all good things come from God so if it’s a good idea then move forward with it. 

At the time, I didn’t have a clear point of view of a good idea versus a God idea, but several months later it became crystal clear what the difference was. So in this blog post, I will share the revelation that I received regarding a good idea v. God idea.

As entrepreneurs and business owners, we usually have more ideas than the average person, and many ideas could be considered good ideas. The question then is, as a believer how do we determine whether to move forward with a good idea and if the idea is what God desires for you to do?  

The biggest way to know the difference is to recognize the difference between a good idea and a God idea:

5 Key Points to Simply Believe!

REPOST FROM 8/28/2019

Last week we discussed CLARITY and how it equips you to effectively market your brand. Check out the blog to learn 3 areas you should be clear on when it comes to marketing your business.

This week I’m shaking things up a bit because I wanted to share with you a special message – my FAITH FRIDAY message. It works the same as Marketing Monday in that I choose a focus word related to faith in business. This week the word is BELIEVE. Watch the video and/or read the summary below to learn 5 key points about simply believing!

Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matt. 18:4 ESV)

5 Key Points to Simply Believing

  1. Serving God Should Not Be Complicated – Anything that you are doing in your business or personal life that is causing complication needs to have God brought in to clear it up. Chaos is not of God and does not serve God.
  2. Be Like a Child – simply enjoy yourself as children do. What are you doing to enjoy yourself? Be carefree and understand that God is in control. Believe what you are told in God’s word; God tells you what is promised so believe it.
  3. Believing Simplifies Life – God takes care of our circumstances. when you believe that God has your back, believe things will work out, believe His word. Believing releases joy and frees us to enjoy our lives.
  4. Diligently Do What God Says – Do what He says in His word and what He speaks to our hearts. We hear what God says when we are reading His word and when He touches our hearts.
  5. Put All Your Trust in God and Be Obedient – We have to exercise our trust in God by giving our circumstances and situations to Him to handle and then simply BELIEVE it is taken care of. Being obedient is simply doing what He instructs and believing it will be done.

Be sure to share your thoughts or points you gained about the devotional or blog in the comments. I am hosting the Power of Divine Alignment Summit next week September 26- September 30th where you will learn how to align your business and your belief.  Register here: Power of Divine Alignment Summit
