Have to believe I am being divinely guided and that if I keep praying and asking God to open the right doors and close the ones that are not for me and to keep me safe and sane.
Provided, I worked and got paid and am still looking at how to start an online coaching and conflict resolution business.
feel loved, secure and provided for first rather than seeking it on the outside.
God is the One who supplies our needs. Our jobs are not our source—God is. So when jobs and investments disappear, we don’t have to feel hopeless because God is not limited. He can provide for us through other means, in ways we may not have imagined or can figure out ahead of time.
Matthew 6:26 reassures us that if God takes care of the birds, we can believe He is going to provide for us, too. Do you believe God can take care of you?
Prayer Starter: God, thank You for being a faithful, trustworthy source and providing all I need. No matter what happens, I rely on You and only You to meet my needs.
We all want resolution and peace and coaching and to have a great life doing what we love: either for a company or as a side hustle that brings in profitability.
7-10 clients paying $1000 for the month= 7,000 to 10,000 a month. Class, integrity, content and outstanding customer service. so people feel safe doing business with me. Give more that you pay for. What can I give, not just about making money. Satisfaction, knowing I did it for the right reasons.

Dr. Henry Cloud:
When we think of confrontation, it brings up mixed feelings and emotions for us. In fact, our minds actually try to protect us from confrontation when it becomes uncomfortable, and we avoid it. However, it’s a necessary part of any relationship that helps us to move forward in our lives.
Sometimes we’re not prepared for confrontation. When you attempt to speak to someone about a problem or an issue, for whatever reason, you go in to break up and you come out engaged! And you’re no closer to resolving the issue. Actually, you’re probably further from it. So, what happened?
Let’s take a look at the mental blocks and the vulnerabilities that keep us from confronting someone.
- You beat around the bush too much and are not direct as you want to be.
- You become too angry and argumentative instead of remaining calm and clear.
- You feel sorry for the other person and lighten up too much.
- You’re too anxious.
- You break down and are overwhelmed with the pain of it all.
- You know exactly what limits you intend to set, and you give in more than you wanted.
- You allow yourself to get sidetracked into arguments or having to justify what you think or want.
- You fear the consequences of the confrontation (rejection, disapproval, conflict) so much that it gets in the way of your dealing with the problem.
- You have some other personal vulnerability that gets in the way.
Most people have made at least one attempt to have the conversation they’ve been avoiding, but something proves to be too much to overcome. So they don’t know what to do. They become stuck, or, worse, get discouraged about ever making things better.
We’re going to look more at that later this week, but now I’ll to turn it over to you guys. In 100 words or less, I want you to answer this: When you confronted someone to resolve a conflict, how did it work in your favor? Send your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Confrontation,” and as usual, we’ll edit names and stories to maintain your privacy.
Looking forward to hearing from you, as always!
