Mindful Minute: Coach

Coach: a passionate, dedicated individual who unlocks hidden potential and maximizes an individual and teams’ performance by believing, encouraging, and developing their strengths.

Coach Bud was the first man whom I knew that truly believed in me.  For a skinny fourteen-year-old with anger issues, fresh out of foster care, also on probation, God knew I needed Coach Bud.  His influence transformed and shaped my self-worth, relationships, and belief that I would graduate high school and college.

I wish that everyone had a Coach Bud in their life.

Actually, we do, the Holy Spirit, who is far better than any coach, and precisely what we need right here, right now.

In John’s gospel, Jesus assured his disciples that through the presence of the Holy Spirit, his word, wisdom, and work in their lives would continue to grow and bear fruit.

“All this I have spoken while still with you.  But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.  Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives.  Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.  John 14:25-27

The Holy Spirit will “teach you all things and remind you of everything God says.”  The ultimate Life Coach is available to all who believe and receive Christ as Lord and Savior.  We’re not left to figure life out on our own.  God’s presence, provision, protection, power, and peace reside in you through the Holy Spirit.

He will guide and provide all the strength you need for this day and every day to come.  He passionately loves you, believes in you, and if you let him, he will transform you into the beloved daughter or son he created you to be.

One final comment; to all the coaches, teachers, pastors, and leaders who intentionally and purposely invest in the lives of others.  You’re making a life-changing difference in all of us.  Thank you!
