What Do You Truly Believe?

I pray that you know Jesus in such a profound way that you do not fear death but that you look forward to the day you will meet Him. In John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?”

I invite you to take a moment today and reflect on what you truly believe. Let’s be grateful for today and this moment of life.

I dedicate this video today to my friends Derik and Sabrina that are now with Jesus. Thank you Lord that you allowed me to meet those two beautiful souls and pray with them and talk with them about You.

I pray that through my videos you experience a glimpse of Christ love each and every day. Thank you for watching.

A Very Big Miracle

Chapter 15, Speak Truth is one of my very favorite chapters in my book because of the VERY BIG MIRACLE that happened in my life through the act of speaking truth in my life. I cannot wait for you to read about this miracle in my book!

(Excerpt Worthy of a Miracle pg. 195-196)
“Going through cancer and the coma, I learned the power of my thoughts and words. When I woke up in the hospital and could not speak, my thoughts quickly turned from defeat to determination. Backed by the power of the prayers of my family and friends, I
insisted that I was going to breathe on my own, get out of the bed, and walk again. I believed that God had not brought me this far to quit. No one was going to stop me. My thoughts became my words, which became my reality. 

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Rom. 12:2)

This was the Scripture I clung to while undergoing chemotherapy. Little did I know how it would impact the rest of my healing. Words are powerful. All of creation came to be simply through the power of God’s word. “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was
light” (Gen. 1:3). God’s word spoke creation into existence.

Our words are like the air we breathe. Our words give us life. It’s time to believe in the power of our words and the positive impact they can have on us. Speaking the truth out loud has changed my life, my faith, and my relationships with my family and friends. It has helped me let go of all the times in my childhood when I had no voice and learned to think my only real value was in how I looked or how I performed. Now I know that when I speak, Jesus is listening, even if no one else hears. I know this because of my personal relationship with him. Today, I know that when we speak God’s word, we have supernatural power and authority through Christ. And when we speak God’s words to ourselves, we do a better job of encouraging and uplifting with positive self-talk as we face life’s challenges.”

Today I want to encourage you to examine the words you are speaking to others and to yourself. Let me know in the comments below if you’ve had any experience with speaking God’s word out loud and what it has done for you.

Can we really Expect Miracles?

Do I have to keep training? The marathon is just around the corner, it is soooo close. But some days it’s hard to keep on keeping on. Every day I have to make an intentional decision: train or slack off.

Today I chose to persevere and stay strong.

Tuesday I talked with you about Expect Miracles from the JESUS acronym in my book: Just Live Today, Expect Miracles, Speak Truth, Use Your Gifts, Start Now!

When we think about Expecting Miracles, it really goes back to our mindset. For example, when you wake up each day do you automatically think how can I get through the day and try to find something to be positive about or do you wake up with an expectant mindset … expecting to notice the miracles in your life?

What would it be like if you went through an entire 24 hours expecting miracles all around you?

Let’s take a minute and look around at the miracles right now in front of us. It is a miracle we are alive and breathing! It is a miracle that it is raining! It is a miracle that we have a beautiful world that surrounds us!

When will we shift our perspective from just getting through the day to looking at life expectantly? I know from personal experience that when I live life expectantly my day turns out completely different, full of hope … full of excitement … full of miracles!

Leave a comment and let me know what miracles are you expecting in your life?

I know that six years ago today I was asleep in a coma and my family and friends were believing and expecting God for a miracle. And through their faith and prayers God delivered a miracle! What miracle are you expecting from God today?

A Simple Tip to Overcome Stress

When you’re feeling stressed and overwhelmed with your schedule what can you do to get rid of that tension?

One trick I’ve shared with my coaching clients over the past few years is an acronym I created called S.L.O.W.

Stop … stop what you are doing.
Listen … listen to your surroundings, to your heart, to God. What is it telling you?
Obey … be obedient in what you just heard.
Walk … put it into action, do it now.

Today when I was feeling overwhelmed I asked myself what can I do to stop feeling this way? Immediately I knew I needed to S.L.O.W. down.

Leave me a comment and let me know if there is anything you are feeling overwhelmed with today & be entered to win a copy of The Mended Heart by Suzanne Eller.

Living in God’s presence will shift you from being stressed to stressed-less. Check out Tracie Mile’s Stressed-less Living bible study here!

Meditate on Psalm 16:1, You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Our help is in the name of the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 124:8

No matter how hard I try to turn over complete control of my life to God, I inevitably manage to hold onto one little tiny shred of it.  Especially when it comes to letting go of control over my future.  I go from needing answers in black and white to somehow “fully relying on God”.  To be completely honest, I struggle with staying committed to turning to the Lord for my every need.  Today I want to ask you a few questions.

What is your biggest need right now? 

What areas are you struggling in? 

Where do you need encouragement in your life?

Will you take a leap of faith and share with me your needs today?

~I want to know how I can best encourage you!~

Never Alone

Four years ago this Saturday, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer.  Every year around this time, my mind goes back to that sickening place of facing the fact that I might die from a disease that was running violently throughout my body.  There are so many stories I could share with you about my cancer journey, but today I want to focus on one story that shows God’s faithfulness and how He never leaves us alone.

On May 11, 2009 when the doctors unexpectedly rushed me in for an emergency CAT scan, I’ll never forget the frightening and intense feelings of helplessness.  I immediately cried to God and begged Him to say something to me in that moment.  “God, I need to hear you now, please say anything!”  He responded instantly with, “I endured the nails.”  That was it.  Nothing else.  My first response was, “Lord I have no idea what you want me to do with this” and then within my next breath I took a deep sigh of relief and said, “ok God, no matter what I’m getting ready to face, life, death, pain, suffering, I’m going to be fine because you’ve already done it all.”  I suddenly felt strong and relieved yet still trembling with shock.

Exoduse 33:14 explains perfectly the reassurance I felt after my encounter with God that day.

“My presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

I knew that no matter what hell I was getting ready to go through, I would never be alone and that is what provided me with unimaginable peace and rest for my soul throughout my battle with cancer.

Friends, I want to reassure you today that you are never alone.  No matter how isolated you may feel because of the trials you are going through, the Holy Spirit, the God of the universe is with you every step of the way.  Sometimes I go back and watch my miracle video to remind me how far God has taken me.  Will you take a moment to watch it today and see what God is speaking to you?  How far has God brought you in your life?  Please click the comment link below to share.

My Cry to the Lord

This is my personal cry (prayer) to the Lord today as I reflect on Psalm 107:19  “Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.”  

Holy Father,

I believe You are the ultimate healer of my soul and I claim in Jesus’ name that your Spirit will fall on me today and awaken my soul to your infinite passionate love for me!  I confess in my flesh I struggle, try and aim to please, but in Your Spirit I’m freed from the agony of performing and perfectionism.  Empty me as I confess the lies I’ve believed for oh so long.

Today is the day I’m taking a stand and refusing to look back.  I’m hearing Your voice say, “I do matter and I am someone”.  I choose to believe Your truth, Your voice today.  I can do all things in this life because of Your powerful strength that flows through each breath I take.  I am nothing without You, but I AM everything with You!

I would like to dedicate this prayer to my precious daughter that the Lord has entrusted me with.  May every word of this prayer remain true for each one of us today.

If you have a prayer request, please leave a comment on the link below.  I would like to take time to pray for all my readers today.  God bless you!

Grateful to coach women around the world at www.lindakuhar.com.

My New Life 91.9 Video

Last year our local Christian Radio Station came to my home and interviewed my mom and me about my cancer story.  When I watch the video it brings a specific scripture to mind.

I will say of the LORD, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust! Psalm 91:2 AMP

Today as I share this video with you I want to lift up my Savior and sing songs of PRAISE & THANKSGIVING!!!  Nothing is impossible for our God!  I am forever grateful!  I pray this video is a blessing for you today!

Put Your Hands Up

I have a beautiful 12-year-old daughter who looks as if she’s going on 19.  I don’t know what happened, but it’s like I went to sleep one night with a baby girl by my side and the very next morning I woke up to a young lady who is madly in love with Justin Bieber, obsessed with what to wear and could never have enough colors of nail polish.  Now all of a sudden I find myself in panic mode to make sure she knows “enough” about Jesus and that her identity is completely emerged in Christ and not in any way shape or form what others say about who she is.  In my typical control freak nature, I’ve tried to have conversations (more like manipulations) with her to clarify who she really is and what she really believes.

So just last week I said, “Meg who do you think healed me from cancer?” and with a dumb founded expression she rolled her eyes and said “duh Mom, Jesus!”  I have to admit I felt pretty stupid and yet a burst of relief all at the same time.  That’s when I realized again we do not have to push our beliefs on others, but to simply allow others to observe our lives and decide for themselves.

As a Women’s Christian Life Coach, I have many clients that have husbands or loved ones that are not followers of Christ and they struggle with holding their tongue and waiting patiently for God to move in their lives.  But what I’ve recently learned in scripture is that “Often we look for God’s glorious acts without concern for following his instructions” NIV Study Bible.  My point being is that we must continue every day to patiently TRUST God in a posture of obedience with our lives.   What does that look like for you?  For me personally it starts with meeting the Lord on my knees in the early morning hours or putting my hands up to praise Him in worship.  It’s funny how our postures show exactly what we are feeling internally.  I would like to encourage you the next time you meet with God to notice how you are approaching His throne.  Does your posture reflect His instructions for your life?  Does it show the ultimate love you want so desperately for others to believe?

Prevail

Have you ever had your mind and heart set on a dream only for God to take you down a completely different path in your life?

I had this happen about 5 years ago.  I started going back to school to get a Masters Degree in Counseling.  I knew without question at a very early age I wanted to help others in this field.  While going back to college I was diagnosed with cancer, and my life took a completely different turn, as you can only imagine.  Immediately I went from pursuing my dream to become a licensed counselor to fighting for my life to stay alive.  Looking back over what took place, I can’t help but almost laugh at how true God’s word is.

“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.”  Proverbs 19:21

When I set out to get my degree in counseling, I never in my wildest dreams would of thought that God would use my life to minister to others about His unfailing grace, mercy and miraculous love for us.  Who in the world would of thought that while training to run a half-marathon 6 months after waking up from my coma I would discover the deepest desire of my heart, coaching?  Even though I had no desire to become a “running coach”, God revealed to me that I could be a spiritual coach.  As a Women’s Christian Life Coach I get to love, encourage and motivate others just as my running coaches did for me.  Now today, 5 years later I have the privilege of coaching women daily around the world as we seek God together and build deeper intimate relationships with Christ!

My hope and prayer for you today is that even if you are questioning which direction your life is heading, that you too will trust the scripture and know without question that God’s purpose for you life will prevail!  Leave a comment today and share where you are in your life plans and what God is revealing to you.
