Dig Ditches

Dig ditches.

Dig ditches, when you’re trusting for things to somehow work out the advice given is to “dig a ditch.” In the Bible, In the book of 2 Kings 3 several kings and their armies were journeying through the wilderness. After seven days there was no more water for them or the animals traveling with them.

The kings didn’t know what to do. They asked if there was a prophet traveling with them. Elisha the prophet was with them and he was told to consult the Lord for a solution. The Lord heard Elisha and answered and told them to make the valley where they were, full of ditches.

Dig ditches when there was no water or sign of water? What else could they do? They had to follow God’s instructions. Not only did He tell them to make the valley full of ditches, he told them they would see no signs of rain but the valley would be full of water.

To dig ditches required faith, it was a sign that they believed the water would come. The water came. In abundance, it filled the valley, just like God said it would. What are you believing God to do in your life? What problem do you have that desperately needs solving? Dig ditches, show Him that you believe you’ll receive what you’re believing for. Trust Him today.

The Key to a Rich and Satisfying Life

What does a rich and satisfying life look like for you?

I talk a lot about living the life you really want, having clarity, and taking action. However, there’s something that I believe has to happen in order for you to live the life you really want. That something is that you have to have a relationship with Jesus Christ. You have to want to do life His way. You can have everything in place, know what you want, taking action to make it happen, and you can still be dying on the inside. You see, a rich and satisfying life is not possible without Him.

When Jesus is the head of your life, when you have relationship with Him, He will lead and direct you. When you follow His way, when you consult Him first, life is so much better. You’ll have the life you really want, and it will be a rich and satisfying life. Not many can say that about their lives. Will your life be rich and satisfying?

If you know there is more to life than the way you’re living it but you don’t know what to do about it let’s talk and create a strategy for getting you there. A rich and satisfying life is possible, and it’s possible for you. Schedule a complimentary call with me HERE.

3 Ways Clarity Will Change Your Life

Do you know what you want to have, be, and do? A lot of people live life without clear answers to these questions. They face each day agitated and stressed and are unsure why they feel that way.

These issues are then addressed with prescription meds, alcohol, or illegal drugs. What’s really being addressed are the symptoms of a bigger problem. That problem is lack of clarity.

Having clarity will change your outlook on life; it will give you life.

Here are a few things having clarity will do for you:

1. Reduce stress.

When you know what you want life becomes more simple. It’s easier to say “no” to the activities and people that pull you away from your goals and dreams.

2. Boost your confidence.

When you know what you want you walk a little taller. Clarity builds confidence.

3. Wake you up excited to live your life.

Knowing what you desire gives you something to focus on. When you’re focused you have purpose and that is what will wake you up excited each day. In my next blog post I’ll talk about how to stay motivated.

If you’re lacking clarity in your life I want to encourage you to take the time to get clear about what you’d like to have happen in your life. Not sure how to get clarity? This free download has 10 things you can do to have clarity. You can get it here: 10 Things For Clarity

Quiet Time Gives Life: 5 Signs that it’s time for some

Quiet time. It seems like a rare commodity. People are not making time for it anymore. I wonder why? Are they afraid of it? Are you afraid to be alone with yourself and God? Quiet time gives life, could this be why it is so elusive?

Lately my quiet time has not been a priority. I’ve been squeezing it in after everything else in my day is done and I’m so tired that the time I’ve been spending is so short. It’s time for me to make it a number one priority again, nothing should come before my quiet time, my time with the Lord. Once I spend time with Him He shows me how to manage my time for everything else. Once I spend time with Him, the answers to whatever problems I may be facing become clear and I am equipped to face whatever life dishes out. Quiet time gives you life and here’s how to tell that you haven’t made it a priority:

  1. You feel like your life is out of control.
  2. You feel agitated.
  3. You struggle to make decisions.
  4. Something is bothering you and you can’t seem to put your finger on what it is.
  5. You’re not the nicest person to be around.

If the list resonated with you, it’s time to make quiet time with the Lord a priority. Start where you are, wake up a few minutes earlier, go to bed a few minutes later, do whatever it takes but start somewhere.You don’t have to have big chunks of time to get started, 15 minutes is a good starting point. As you spend time with the Lord He’ll show you how to free up more time for what matters most.

Spending time alone may be difficult for you, your mind races, you can’t focus, the attention deficit really kicks in. It’s ok, keep going. The more you have time alone, the easier it will become to quiet your mind. During your quiet time tell the Lord why you’re there, what you’re feeling and then just wait on Him; He’ll give you everything you need, sometimes right then, sometimes as you go about your day. Trust Him and when you hear, obey. Your quiet time gives life, don’t go without it. Let me know how having quiet time has made your life better.

God’s Plan For Your Life: Seek Him

I’ve been sharing on periscope (@rochelleinglis) about finding out God’s plan for your life. Here’s part 3 of what I have been sharing.

The REAL Reason You Are Stuck


I know all too well what it feels like to be stuck. I was stuck for a very long time. It was such a frustrating place to live. I knew that I was not where I was supposed to be but I wasn’t clear on where I wanted to be. I had no idea how to get unstuck. Does this sound familiar?

After many years I finally got clear on what I wanted to do, be, and have. This clarity allowed me to create a plan of action to change my life. Getting here was not easy for me. I had much loss, disappointment, and frustration…unnecessarily.

Yes, you read correctly. Much of my turmoil was unnecessary and caused by yours truly. While I did not like the journey to get where I am, unstuck. My experience allows me to help so many people, people just like you. So, get ready for what I’m about to tell you. It may hurt but if you consider what I am saying you’ll realize it’s true. If you do what I suggest, things will change for you.

The real reason that you are stuck is one of the following:

1. You have not sought the Lord for His plan for your life. 

When someone tells me that they’re stuck I know that they have not sought the Lord concerning His plan for their life. God promises to give us wisdom if we ask for it in faith (James 1:5).

If you’re stuck take some time, get quiet and seek the Lord. He says He’ll answer so keep seeking until you have your answer. If I told you I buried one million dollars in your backyard for you, I am pretty certain that you would not dig in one spot for 3 minutes and give up if you didn’t find it. You would keep digging until you found it. All day, all night, all week if you had to. Use that same approach for finding out God’s will for your life. He has it, don’t stop seeking Him until you have it.

2. You know God’s plan for your life but are choosing not to do it. 

If you have sought the Lord for His plan for your life and He has told you and you have chosen to go a different direction, you will feel stuck.

God’s plan for your life is good (Jeremiah 29:11). He is God, He knows everything. If He tells you to do something, it’s  best for you. Even if what He is telling you to do doesn’t seem to be the answer to what you currently need.  Even if what He says makes no sense to you. Even if what He says scares you because you don’t think you’re equipped to do it. He knows best, His way is best. Obey Him or continue living in the land of the stuck.

There you have it, the real reason you’re stuck. Find out God’s plan for your life and do it!
