I'm On The Stool!
My Feet Are In The Stirrups
"Don't just sit on the stool of do nothing," my mother would say when it appeared as though you were doing exactly that-nothing. At some point and time all of us find ourselves on that stool doing nothing and wondering how to get off it. Interestingly enough, there is more to that stool than meets the eye.
In ancient times when women gave birth they perched down on a stool and a mid-wife would assist as they brought a new life into the world. All the while, the midwife would coach the woman through the pain of labor to ensure the baby's safe arrival. The mid-wife played a critical role because she was an encourager and a protector, not only for the mother's life through the birthing process, but the baby's as well. Her main objective was to ensure that the mother received her promise of a healthy baby.
Many of us are perched on the stool and need someone who can coach us to give birth to myriad talents and gifts that God placed in us. Oftentimes, we find ourselves just sitting on the stool waiting and longing for someone to help us birth out the thing that has become uncomfortable to carry any longer. We are clueless as to what to do and because the pain of moving forward appears to be more than we can handle we remain stagnated perched on that stool in fear. Afraid to push!
One thing is for sure if the seed that has been planted is not allowed to be birth it will die inside of you. Just like there was enmity between Eve's seed and the serpent, there are forces with the express intent to keep you from birthing into your destiny and purpose. His deceptive tactics are always rooted in the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life. He is forever lurking to prevent you from giving birth.
Rather than stay perched on that stool or positioned with your feet in the stir-ups without any assistance, seek someone who can coach you into your destiny and purpose. Everyone needs someone to cry out, "Push, Your Name, push." Even more, we need someone who is willing to put their lives on the line as the mid-wives did for Moses when they defied Pharaoh's decree to kill all the male babies, Midwives are deliverers and protectors of the seeds of purpose.
There is so much greatness in everyone. My task, as a spiritual midwife, is to coach others to experience and become all God created them to be...all He envisioned for them. You see, each of us have been impregnated with seeds of purpose and need coaching through the gestation process to birthing out that which God has sanctioned from the foundation of the world.
Rather than stay perched on the stool, push your way into greatness. Need some help? I'm here to coach you to the greatness God envisioned even before you were born!
