Pruning for Abundance: Nurturing Growth in Your Life and Ministry
Do you feel like the Lord is calling you to something new, but you simply don’t have the space or time in your schedule? Or are the good and restful parts of your life being neglected because you are hanging on to old habits or commitments? Cutting back to the most essential things can be difficult. This is why in today’s Coach’s Corner I focus on the art of pruning—shedding what no longer serves us to make room for growth and abundance.
By drawing parallels between the natural world and our lives, I help you recognize the signs of when it’s time to prune, discover the wisdom in knowing what to cut, when to cut, and how to cut. And, I’ll give practical tips for navigating this process. Join me as I explore the biblical foundation of pruning, and with the help of the Holy Spirit let’s prune with reckless abandon so as to make way for new life that is healthier and stronger than it’s ever been.
In today’s episode, you will hear:
- How to recognize when something needs to be pruned
- How to decide what needs pruning
- Ways to experiment with changes before committing
