But Really ~ What's Holding You Back? (2 ways to use this empowering question)

When thinking about a decision it can be helpful to weigh the pros and cons. Personally, I like to write them out and then take them to an "altar" in prayer and talk to God.

I say something like, "Here we go God, this is what I can see, but you know it all. Help me choose wisely and guide me with Your Spirit!"

Sometimes, I think He gives me the choice myself and encourages me to just decide, and sometimes I feel a certain sense of what I should do. Occasionally, He drops something in my mind or heart that is new information that helps guide me toward the wise choice.

Then, I ask myself this question: What's holding you back?

If the honest answer is fear of any kind: fear of the unknown, fear of how I will perform, or fear of first (I've never done anything like this before), then I calm my soul and ask God for the courage to say "yes". 

I can not let fear guide my life choices.

As promised, there are two ways you can use this empowering question. 

1) You can use this question when you yourself are making a decision. And

2) You can use this question as you are helping someone you are coaching make a decision they can feel strong about. 

If you are still on the fence about coach training for this next cohort, can I ask you -

What's holding you back?

If you need more information, please reach out and ask! 

If it is fear of something, I pray you will embrace the grace to move forward.

If God is asking you to wait, please listen.


If you want to learn more about discerning His voice personally and help others to do the same, coach training could be your best next step!
