The Nikki Jordan Life Coaching Chat Room

Hi, All! In case you missed it, I am, FINALLY, getting my Nikki Jordan Life Coaching Chat Room set up!!!!! I’m SO EXCITED because I’ve wanted a way that we can discuss live! I have so many things that I want to share with you and have great hope that you, too, will share with me! So, this is the first step.

Also,  I’m not getting many comments or much feedback about what you all are enjoying or not or even what you think. I REALLY want to know!!! Maybe the chat room will be a place that we can do that. I’m praying that it will.  Tell me. What topics would you like to see me cover? I specialize in relationships and communication. I teach about self esteem and how to overcome negative thinking. There’s so much more that I’m qualified to help you figure out.

If you like what I have to say on here, then maybe you’d like to go further into your self actualization by working one on one with me. For those of you who don’t live close enough to see me face to face, then we can, certainly, work over the phone or even online. The choice is yours. My rates are reasonable and my hours are flexible for the most part.

I’m eager to have the opportunity to help you become all you were created to be!!!
God bless,

Nikki

Regrets

Hi, All! It’s late here and I’m not going to write a bunch, but I do have something on my heart that I feel that The Lord wants me to share with  you.

Up until maybe the last year or two, I would throw the biggest fit when I didn’t get my way. Yes. I’m confessing to  you all. But, God NEVER gave up on me and others who are close to me have marveled at the difference in me.

So, what’s different? Well, my walk with God is different. I’ve learned to trust Him more and not to get upset when things don’t go my way. You see. I never KNEW that I could live if things didn’t go my way! Isn’t that sad??? I think it is.

But, here’s what God has done for me. God has changed me!!! He’s helped me to know that it’s OK if things don’t go my way. He’s also let me know that He forgives me for my childish behavior and that I can be strong and ask forgiveness of others.

Well, I’ve asked the forgiveness that I’ve needed to ask and I feel like a brand new person!  Things are coming together and, more importantly, my relationships are being renewed and restored!!! I can’t tell you how thankful I am!!! I’ve learned that God is all that I need and that if He hasn’t given it to me, then I didn’t need it anyway! I LOVE that lesson even though it took me a long time to really get it.

Now, here’s what I wanted to say in all of this. I’ve done some things in my life that I’m REALLY not proud of. In all of that, I’ve been asked if I regret the things that I’ve done. Here’s what I’ve learned about regrets. They aren’t fruitful. They serve NO purpose except to keep us from repeating the same mistakes. Because of this, regrets really shouldn’t be regrets. They should be more like reflections on something that you want to do differently in the future.

So, when you make a mistake and, then obtain all of the forgiveness from God and all other parties involved, then just leave it with God. (Reminder: You can only sincerely ask forgiveness. You can’t MAKE the other person forgive you. God always forgives you when  you are sincerely repentant.  As long as you’ve sincerely sought forgiveness, then you’ve done what is required of you; it’s time to let it go!)  It is what it is. God’s only allowed you to remember your mistakes so that you won’t do it again. Dwelling on them just calls God a liar when He said that He forgives you and makes all things new. So, don’t call Him a liar. Accept this blessing that He longs to give to you! Let His love, forgiveness, and grace make you BRAND NEW!! His forgiveness has already been given! Now, all that’s left to do is for you to accept it and move on to make your life and your service to Him more fruitful.

Please think about this and really pray about it. I KNOW that you will begin to find all of the peace that God has for you, but this is an integral part. You can’t have HIS peace without THIS piece of the puzzle. Whatever it is, if its already been made right, then let it go. Leave it at the cross and God will give you His peace that passes all understanding which shall keep you heart and mind in Christ Jesus!

Here’s the scripture! Hold tightly to it and learn to live it!!

God bless!

Nikki

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.                Phillipians 4:6-7

We Serve a Prayer Answering God!

“Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian”   -Andrew Murray

When I was reading this quote today, I really wanted God to show me what His insights are into this particular quote. So, I started praying that God would enlighten me. One things that God is TRULY GREAT at is answering the prayers of His saints!! So, I felt that I should just keep praying, keep meditating on this quote, and keep writing this because of this. I’ve learned many things about our God in the 25 years that I’ve served Him. One of the great things that I’ve learned about Him is that it’s, often, important to step out in faith and let Him catch you as He fulfills His part of the promise!

Now, you might be wondering how this could happen this way, so I’m going to tell you! Have you ever tried to do something that you were just sure would NEVER work?  How easy was that? How much fun was it?  It’s like making a record that you don’t believe will sell a single copy. How silly!  We inherently know that would be silly and fruitless. Why would that be silly and fruitless?  Well, I’m so glad that you asked!

First of all, WHY on God’s green Earth would a person go to all of the trouble, expense, and effort to make a record that they thought would go no further than their bedroom recording studio?  To be honest with you, I don’t believe that they would. I believe that if someone went to all the effort of properly recording a production, then the belief in the product is unspoken, but completely real.

We, as intelligent human beings, don’t normally tend to put all of our time, effort, and money into things that we don’t believe will accomplish anything. That’s JUST NOT the way that it works.

So, back to the Andrew Murray quote.

“Faith in a prayer-hearing God will make a prayer-loving Christian”   -Andrew Murray

If a person is making music that they are COMPLETELY convinced will be loved by and a blessing to others, then that person will, innately enjoy the music and the production of it. In the same way, if a Christian truly believes that God hears and answers our prayers, then we will, absolutely, LOVE offering those prayers to Him!

So, the next time that you pray, go to God like a child who believes that his or her Father will bless them with all of the best that he can bless them with. God will LOVE that!!! When God is pleased, then it is His pleasure to bless His children.  Believe that God wants to give you great things because He truly does!

Luke 12:32  Do not be afraid and anxious, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. (Amplified)

God WANTS to give you great things. He WANTS you to be happy and fulfilled. His only requirement is that you put Him first in your life which is His rightful place. This is what God’s Word says:

Matthew 6:33

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

So, if we put it all together, we know that God teaches us that if we believe that The God that we serve is a God who hears and answers our prayers, then we will be people who love to pray!!! It’s an unending circle too! The more that we pray, then the more that we will LOVE to pray and, then the more that we love to pray, the more that we will pray!!!

So, remember that you have to believe that God is a prayer answering God because, in God, you get what you expect. Well, in life, you pretty much get what you expect. So go to God expecting Him to be kind to you and to want to bless you and He will! It’s really not complicated.

Remember that God loves you SO MUCH and LONGS to give you the keys to The Kingdom. Let’s seek Him today believing that He is waiting for us to come to Him and that He has BIG rewards that He wants to give to us!!

God love you all and so do I!!
God bless,
Nikki
