Personal Process Assessment

Joy mentored me through friendship. Friendships happen in many settings and evolve in diverse ways, but a precious few will grow into a mentoring relationship where you either become a loyal friend and advisor or the beneficiary of such a friend. How do you see your friendships evolving? Which relationships in your life have you received or given such love and guidance? What are you doing currently to stay connected to close confidants in your life?

Mentoring is counsel for the calling. It is not training, coaching, teaching, or parenting. Mentoring provides an essential spirituality necessary for overall growth and maturity. It involves spiritual impetus. Willingness is the contingency clause to defining your life’s purpose and keeping it through mentoring. You define it when you’re mentored. You hold on to it when you mentor. Mentoring is fun! Are you willing to do whatever it takes to see yourself succeed in your gifts and callings? As a mentor, do you make yourself available whenever the call comes? Do you accept the inconvenience of a phone call or interruption to stop what you are doing and accommodate the need?

Destiny=Fate. Once you accept Jesus as your Savior and Lord, Heaven is your Destiny.

Purpose=Intent. God wants you to wake up each morning with quiet resolve and determination in your heart to live this day to the fullest no matter what happens.

Meaning=Message. God speaks to you through your circumstances everyday. What is He saying to you?
