Striving For Excellence In Ministry D5 – Motivation For Excellence.

October 4, 2014 5 comments

Where is the Motivation

Striving For Excellence In Ministry Scripture – Psalm 18:33 (KJV) – “He maketh my feet like hinds’ feet, and setteth me upon my high places.”

New King James Version – “He makes my feet like the feet of deer, And sets me on my high places.”

 

Maintaining the proper motivation in ministry is critical for long-term ministry commitment. Finding your set place and functioning in your set place is the key to living a fulfilled life.

There are several types of motivation for ministry. The most important one is the motivation to please God. This motivation is the most scriptural and reliable form of spiritual motivation for ministry service. When your chief motivation is to please God, peer pressure to abandon one’s purpose is easily dismissed because acceptance from others is not a priority.

Being self-motivated in ministry is a must. Self-motivated people are passionate about their interests and beliefs. For instance, they could be health enthusiasts who understand why health is crucial to their success. Because they believe this, they do everything they can to be healthy. Your beliefs have plenty to do with your motivation. If you believe that being overweight is in your genes, you can’t hope to lose weight even if you exercise. If you believe in your capabilities, you can be a hero. If you believe you’re a failure, you’ll fail. Your spirit must be strong enough to believe that you can fulfill the ministry God has called you to.

Those who are self-motivated are also advocates of discipline. Without this mind-set, it’s not possible to follow a regular routine of exercise, a healthy diet, or do anything else which requires daily effort, like working toward the achievement of your goals.  Excellence in ministry may require a change in your life.

There are three decisions you will need to make to help you to stay motivated and strive for excellence in ministry;

1.   Decide what your primary focus is for each moment of your life. This will influence your feelings, thoughts, and actions.

2.  Decide how your situations affect you. Cut through the chaos and pause to answer this question: How does this situation affect my present and future?

3.  Decide what you should do now. This is a most important decision. Don’t be bothered by what others are doing and don’t be carried away by what’s happening around you. If you do,   you’re allowing your environment to direct your decision.

Prayer – “Father, You are strengthening me according to your Word, You are making my feet like hind’s feet, so that I will be able to walk upon the high places. I rejoice in you, Lord, and I joy in you for you are my salvation and my strength. I commit to excellence in ministry and life to glorify your Name. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

 

Striving For Excellence In Ministry D3 – Understanding Excellence In Ministry

Ministry Excellence

1 Corinthians 15:58 (The Message Bible)“With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.”

1 Corinthians 15:58 (NIV), “Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”

Excellence in ministry is a prevailing mindset that motivates you to always choose to be and do your best, giving attention to detail which gives birth to your full potential, doing greater works, without compromising any standards of righteousness.

There are five enemies to excellence:
1. Comparison
2. Compromise
3. Corrupt Communication
4. Inconsistency
5. Cheap Mentality

 
The Law of Excellence says that you must have an uncompromised progressive commitment to quality and outstanding performance at the highest and best of your ability which causes success acceleration, speaks in your absence, summons attention, and is the source of attraction for your life and ministry. The reason for development of excellence must be established above and beyond natural reward or human praise.

The conditions that I am willing to tolerate speaks volume about who I really am. To walk in excellence, I must abandon all excuses for a mediocre lifestyle.

Excellence is not what you do, but who you are.

Seven Key Points on the Power of Words – FREE TELECALL

FREE TELECALL JUNE 26

FREE TELECALL JUNE 26

 

One of my favorite scriptures is Proverbs 18:21 which says, “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” The Message Bible makes it even more clear – Words kill, words give life; they’re either poison or fruit—you choose.”

Words have great power, especially those words that you are using every day.  Most people underestimate the great power of words. Just a single word can make a person’s day or even shatter it. Words can destroy and they can also build something. Your words can create a great impact on the lives of other people and your own life. The words that come from your mouth can make a great change in the lives of other people.

Your voice is powerful! Has God given you a message that can transform the lives of those who hear it? Are you unsure about how to shape your message so that those who hear it will be impacted by the power of your words? Are you feeling a little nervous about the power of the words God has entrusted to you.

Don’t worry! Take a deep breath! God has assigned me to help you with your assignment.

I would like to invite you to join me on June 26, 2014 for my “free” 60-minutes tele-call on “Seven Key Points on the Power of Words.” On this call I will teach you seven key points on the power of spoken words. The words you speak can cause great happiness, enlighten a soul and heart, or encourage people.

GTGMT Relationship 2 – All My Relationships Are Loving and Harmonious – Self-Reflection Exercise

February 8, 2014 Leave a comment

Black Love

All my relationships are loving and harmonious.

I have such wonderful relationships. I understand that the key to harmony is communication, so I make it a point to communicate effectively and compassionately with everyone I know. I only enter into relationships that are healthy and beneficial to me.

My relationships are full of love because I have caring people in my life. I show my love toward them, too. I have a genuine interest in others and want them to be happy.

At work, I remain professional, but I reach out to others. My clients, co-workers, and boss know that they can trust me. I feel comfortable with all of these people. My work place is loving and harmonious.

At home, I regularly ask myself what I can do to strengthen my relationships. I accept that positive relationships require daily time and effort. It is 100% worth it. Good relationships make life worth living.

With my friends, I strive to be understanding, even when it is challenging. Everyone is different and has his or her own needs and challenges. I am always kind and considerate. My relationships with my friends are very important to me.

Today, I choose to do what I can to make all of my relationships even better. I choose to be open, supportive, compassionate, and loving to everyone in my life.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. What can I do to strengthen my relationships?
2. How can I be a better friend and partner?
3. Why are my relationships important to me?

GTGMT 28 – Tell The Truth

January 29, 2014 1 comment

 

Have you ever come across the type of person that you felt you just couldn’t trust for some reason? You didn’t know exactly what it was, but he just wasn’t on the level. Or how about the type of person who always has a story, it’s just not a story you believe. Most of us have come across those types – they’re easy to spot because they’re obvious. The truth is, though, we all have some “masking” in us.

As we were growing up and forming our ideas about how to act safely in this world, we all began to wear masks in varying degrees. We say and do the socially acceptable things, and we defer to people in authority over us, no matter what our age. We’ve been doing it for so long and it’s so automatic, that many of us have no idea what we really think or feel. We do it because we don’t want to be rejected by others and because we’re not so sure about ourselves to begin with.

These masks keep us safe. They also imprison us. All of our “shoulds” and “have to’s” and “ought to’s” obscure who we really are. Some people are afraid of repercussions if they decide to be more authentically themselves. But authenticity is not a license to be boorish, and most people know that, so fear of repercussions is invalid. A few people may be threatened by your authenticity in and of itself, but more people will probably welcome it, and studies have shown that the more authentic you are, the more authentic people you attract.

The more people trust themselves and are comfortable with themselves, the more authentic they become in what they say and in their behavior. The more people give up their masks, the more they can explore and celebrate their real self. This releases all the energy that went into maintaining their masks so that it can be put into celebrating their lives.

Do a little investigating into what you think and feel. Is an authentic? Is it working well for you? Is it time to replace those old thoughts and feelings with more authentic ones, ones that represent who you really are. 

We are all changing and growing all the time. Choose the beliefs, feelings, and values that are real for you now. You will be freer, more alive, and happier.
