POWER – DARE – DO Week 12

We are God’s master piece and He delights in us.

Anyone who has involvement with another person whether it is coaching, parenting, instructional,  and/or encouraging, will find themselves following the principles of the 1. knowledge of your power, 2. the courage to dare,  and 3. the faith to do in helping another person stretch past their comfort zone to achieve a greater potential.

As a mother of 6, I have watched my children explore their boundaries with curiosity and ease. When they tended to pull back from taking greater risks, I would step in and pad the floor with pillows so that it would soften their landing as I encouraged them to jumped one step higher…and then another.

I knew that they were capable of doing more before they knew it.  It was my job to give them the power to believe that they could also do more than what they believed they could. When they learned that they lived through the dare of taking risks in small things, then it became easier for them to do more.

As they accomplished each challenge with a sense of pride and zeal, they search for more of “all that they can be.”

Chapter 12.4b in Master Key Master Mind Alliance states, “The only way to keep from going backward is to keep going forward.  Eternal viligence is the price of success.  There are three steps, and each one is absolutely essential.  You must first have the knowledge of your power; second, the courage to dare; third, the faith to do.”

I, personally, have found that somewhere along the line in wrapping myself in the life of my children, I forgot the accomplishments in my own life until we had to write them down on index cards and review them. My one sentence Definite Major Purpose gives me the focus and clarity to believe that I have the power to courageously dare to accomplish in faith all that I can be.

This is a great reminder that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

As I remember how God loved me so much that He sent His Son to be born of a virgin, pay for my sins on the cross, so that I can enjoy eternity with Him; it becomes my deepest desire to also serve others in love.   ‘Feeling is desire, and desire is love.  Thought impregnated with love becomes invincible.’  Anything done without love is of no consequence. Love is the glue that binds action to success.

    Cyndy, thank you for the beautiful post. You have some lucky kids, that encouragement and guidance is priceless. Those index cards are potent stuff, I am also remembering past accomplishments. I love your last sentence “Love is the glue that binds action to success”. Thanks for the thoughtful inspiration!

      Thank you, Nicole. I know you have heard this before, but the best days are when the kids are still at home and you get to see them morph into the creatures God intended them to be. I thank the Lord for loaning them to me for 18 glorious years so that they can be equipped to also have a positive impact in other people’s lives. Never underestimate even the small accomplishments you have done.

    So beautifully written! That’s the most inspiring post I have read to date… and we are 13 weeks into this course. I have read a lot of blogs. I want to be the kind of mom you already are. I want every child to have a mom like you. Keep doing what you are doing, Cyndi. You are doing a lot of things right!

      Heather, I’m sure you are the best mom that your kids can ever have! You are their protector, the ‘prod’ to stay on the right path, their biggest fan, a book of wisdom…or know where to find it, and the example of internal strength in facing struggles of life. Even though we as parents are not perfect, love covers a lot of imperfections. You are doing great!

    Cyndria, I love the way explained the use of the principle with your children! Then when you mentioned you have 6 my immediate thought was, Oh My Gosh!…how to you do it! But that thought lasted only a second because I can see you have relied on the direction of the Lord to guide your way! I believe our journey will make your job even easier and more enjoyable! BELIEVE!

      Thank you, John. You are so right! It was only through the Lord’s strength and wisdom that helped me. My husband’s job kept him gone 1-3 weeks a month. All our kids are now married with families of their own now. I try to be an encourager and a help to others who need a break as I can only remember getting one when our kids were young.
