Are you longing for a close and personal relationship with God? Do you hear people talk about their relationship with God and want what they have? It seems daunting. Looking at spiritual "greats" and seeing what they have and wanting what they have - I've been there; it can be overwhelming. It feels like maybe it's too late to start or that you have to get your life together before God is even that interested in you. Or perhaps you've tried praying before and weren't able to have the connection that others seem to have.
Maybe you're one of the billions of people who are holding onto some past events that have hurt you. Do you have that person who immediately comes to mind when someone asks you if you hold a grudge? Have you ever said, "I have forgiven, but I will never forget!"
You may feel overwhelmed, numb, anxious, and defeated. Yet, you get a sense that your life could be more prosperous, fuller, and more joyful. You know that you could have inner peace and emotional freedom if only you knew how to move through difficult emotions and have a genuine, personal relationship with God without being overwhelmed.
With the right tools and understanding of how you learn and communicate, you can build a VITAL and LASTING faith! You can experience joy in your life. Joy is the feeling of elation that comes when our core values, passion, energy, purpose, and focus meld into the life we want. We have been told to pray. We have been told to have faith. We have NOT been told HOW to pray. We have NOT been taught HOW to build faith. The reason why is that it is different for everyone. Some people have an active prayer life when they practice centering prayer, a type of prayer similar to meditation. Others hear God's voice when they are moving. I know many runners who experience a "runner's high" and joy from a deep connection to that Holy voice that speaks from within when they run. You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139) and how God speaks to you is different from how God speaks to the next person.
“Joy is the feeling of elation that comes when our core values, passion, energy, purpose, and focus meld into the life we want.“
I know this because I am one of those people for whom sitting quietly and bowing my head does not connect me with God. IT ALL CHANGED FOR ME when I learned that I could hear that voice within when I am moving my body. You need to know that I am not a runner. If you see me running, there is a clear threat, and you should stop what you're doing and run. However, I do like to walk. I want to pace the room when I talk on the phone. If I'm in a meeting, my legs bounce as the ideas form. My hands present a real danger if you are too close when I'm describing something. The point is - that we are unique. God comes to us uniquely.
I've coached with Melissa over an extended period, and I have always made significant progress through her coaching. She is compassionate and creative in her approach. She is an attentive listener and always "feels" present as we think together. I highly recommend Melissa as a coach! -Cory Martin
