Are you lost, looking for direction, and feeling like you are not really fulfilling your purpose in life? Do you want to be and achieve more, but find that every day is a struggle just to get by? Christian coaching can help you do more than just tread water. God placed us in a world with adversity to test and refine our minds and bodies; with the right direction and guidance you can find out how to negotiate the storms of life to draw closer to Christ.
Many Christians across the country are silently suffering, looking for greater guidance so they can live a life in imitation of Christ, but unable to find it within their own church and community. Christian coaching, including online and over the phone, can give you this spiritual, yet also practical, guidance and help you lead a valiant Christian life.
Christian coaching for a truly Christian life
Coaching is drawing out of you what God put into you.
Each and every one of us was put on earth with a purpose: to play our role in achieving victory over sin. Many church-going Christians, however, feel, like they are just ‘getting by’, both physically and spiritually, with barely enough energy to keep going, let alone lead a valiant life. Remember, though, that God does not ask of us that which he has not first given us the strength to do. Christian coaching is the process of drawing out your inner strength so you can apply it in your life. Just as Moses drew water from the well for the daughters of Jethro, and then drew water from the rock by speaking the word of the Lord, so Christ-centered coaching and counseling draws deep waters from the spirit into the mind, the heart, and the entire being.
By centering your mind on the Holy Spirit that lives within you, you gain the ability to discern how God is drawing you to Him through each trial and to follow where you are being led. Christian coaching is a profound process of spiritual maturing in which you learn both to hear and to obey the voice of God. You will come to understand what it means to share in the sufferings of Christ as the path to grow in His grace.
Finding a Christian Coach
Christian coaching is not about being led by your coach. Rather, the job of your coach is to draw out what is already inside you so you can take your own journey to greater maturity and freedom in Christ. Some Christians are blessed to find someone in their life who can help draw out their gifts, but many are not and that is where Christian coaching comes in.
You may be a regular church attendee and be receiving valuable spiritual reinforcement from your Church. Christian coaching, however, offers you something more that is usually not available within the church. Even the most active pastors do not have time to provide a regular mentoring relationship to their entire flock. If you know there can be more to your relationship with God, but you are not sure how to get there, Christian coaching could be what you are looking for.
Even leaders in the Church can benefit from Christian coaching. I work with many members of the clergy who have found themselves wounded at the hands of the Church and are looking for new direction and purpose.
Coaching after counseling
Many of clients whom I work with as a Christian counselor graduate to Christian coaching, once we have dealt with the immediate crisis. The Apostle Paul tells us that we must ‘take all thoughts captive to the obedience of Christ’. This is a lifelong process, which builds on the gains we make during Christian counseling. After coming to understand the roots of your pain, you can use this knowledge in every aspect of your life: your marriage, work, family, social life, study, and prayer.
