As we near the end of our sessions, it is my prayer that throughout our time together, God has used our coaching sessions, the assessments, the homework assignments, the prayers, and encouragements to whisper or even to shout out the gifts He has given you…the wonderful personality traits He has equipped you with…and His purpose for them all. It is my prayer that He has highlighted the fears and roadblocks that continue to stand in your way and that you are starting to find the courage to move past them with a fearless faith so that you can live each day with passion and purpose…that you will stand in confidence of who you are and in who God created you to be!
One of the final pieces of our Life Purpose puzzle is to accept our purpose…your unique purpose…only for you…not for anyone else…giving to you specifically…one that only you can fulfill…only in God’s perfect timing. You have to commit to being obedient and to completely surrendering to His will.
Take time to release these 7 Areas of Surrender to Jesus as you fully accept your specific purpose God has given you. Please print them out and fill in the blanks on the prayers below or you can write your own prayers as well. Either way, we will pray these together at our last session. I can’t wait! 🙂
In accepting our purpose, we must surrender to God’s perfect timing. We must accept His timing and know that it will bless our lives when we choose to wait for Him to move.

In accepting our purpose, we must surrender our time to the Lord. We must accept that from now on, our time is to be given to God, and we must use it wisely.

And before we say “yes” or “no” to anything, we must pray for His wisdom and direction and for His “yes” or “no”. We must accept that He will start opening doors for us to use the gifts He has given us and we have to be willing to walk through them.

We must accept that our circumstances will never take away our purpose and that no matter what happens, God’s purpose for us will prevail!
