Find Your Gift
You have been created, by God, to do something specific in this world. He has a plan for you and you can count on it. What were you created to do? Deborah talks with Mike about her purpose in her work. That purpose is helping others find their value, talents, aspirations, and bring them to the forefront. We fall into jobs, careers, and even lifestyles because they are convenient. Is that the path God chose for you? Do you feel fulfilled in your current role, relationship, or even life-track? If the answer is no, then we have work to do and Debrah can help!
Seeing From a New Perspective
Most of the time and I am guilty of this too, we are so deep in the roots of our life that we fail to see what is right in front of us. It is only when someone else steps in and can objectively view our situations, that we find more clarity. Why is that? Deborah talks about how several of her lectures, teachings, and consultations start and end by allowing someone to show you solutions and opportunities that you have missed simply because you are used to seeing them. We overlook them because they are regular but sometimes, we need another brain to teach us that there is more than one way to look at a situation. Building a brighter future for yourself might start with gaining a new perspective on your current situation!
” If we believe the Holy Spirit lives within us, then we have to believe that God doesn’t leave us when we go to work. We are still indwelling of the Holy Spirit!”
