Coach GuideJ2:Session 8

Purpose/Objective

Help participants see the Biblical pattern of working from a place of rest.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Productivity is about seeing what God is doing in our rest and joining Him in our work. The secret to productivity is to rest, and out of rest to to work.

  • Teaching Points:
    • Recognize the pace of your life. Matt. 11:28-30 (Read in MSG translation)
    • Recognize the pace of creation’s life. Gen. 1:3-5, 28, 31, 2:1-3. Part of the grace of Eden is the pace of Eden – each day beginning in rest.
    • Recognize the pace of Jesus’ life – most productive person ever, what were his rhythms? Do you recover like Jesus? John 15.
    • Participate in the replenishing rhythms of grace in your life.

Purpose/Objective

To help participants identify some key areas of Work and Rest that they may need to emphasize in daily, weekly, quarterly and annual rhythms.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: Most of us need to have either rest or work redeemed in our life. Which is it for you? Where are our life rhythms out of line with rhythms of Eden?

  • Individually, participants use the Rest-Work assessment worksheet to analyze, evaluate and reflect on their current Rest/Work patterns on a daily, weekly, quarterly and annual basis.
  • Connect the rhythms here with Biblical ideas of day/night, Sabbath, Seasons and Feasts.
  • Reiterate that we are designed for BOTH rest and work and that both allow us to fulfill our God-given purpose.
  • Our greatest challenge is usually in the imbalance of these replenishment rhythms for a variety of reasons, one being our own life drifts. Great opportunity to connect back to J1 self awareness here.
  • A point of differentiation: What feels like work to one person may feel like rest to another and vice versa. Encourage participants to have self awareness in what feels like rest and what feels like work to them.
  • Have individuals quickly share their insights with one other person.

Purpose/Objective

To help participants bring together the things that they have learned in each LifeSteps focus, and to bring those things to bear into each Storyline of their life.

How It Works

BIG IDEA: The grace God gives us forms the strategy for how we step into the dream He has been dreaming for us.

  • Ask participants to take out their Role Map, their Resource Assessment and their Replenishment Rhythm worksheets.
  • Have participants make general notes of places that stick out to them and where God has nudged them (ie: roles they need to step into, resources they need to re-allocate or increase, rhythms they need to emphasize). This step is an analysis of current conditions.
  • Have participants use the LifeSteps Top Four Emphasis worksheet to either choose a role they want to step into, a resource they want to increase, or a rhythm they need to emphasize in each Storyline of their life, based on that current condition assessment.
    • This one area of focus for each storyline is the first step.
    • It will help to circle or use a different pen color when they write it in the appropriate box, so it will not be confusing in the next steps.
    • Then show the connection of how choosing one major focus point in each Storyline will affect the other two “Rs” in that same Storyline, depending on how they are choosing to step into the one point of focus.
  • Give participants time to fill out the entire worksheet.
  • Preview that this one area of focus is something that will change every 90 Days in their Life Plan.
  • Invite participants to share their insights and reflection with one or two others.
