Bear Down: Birth Out | Showers’ Blessing PicSpire | Jacqui Showers

“Don’t just sit on the stool of do nothing,” my mother would say when it appeared as though you were doing exactly that—nothing. At some point and time all of us find ourselves on that stool doing nothing and wondering how to get off it. Interestingly enough, there is more to that stool than meets the eye.

In ancient times when women gave birth they perched down on a stool and a mid-wife would assist as they brought the birthing stool/chair new life into the world. All the while, the midwife would coach the woman through the pain of labor to ensure the baby’s safe arrival. The mid-wife played a critical role because she was an encourager and a protector, not only for the mother’s life through the birthing process, but the baby’s as well. Her main objective was to ensure that the mother received her promise of a healthy baby.

Many of us are perched on the stool and need someone who can coach us to give birth to myriad talents and gifts that God placed in us. Oftentimes, we find ourselves just sitting on the stool waiting and longing for someone to help us birth out the thing that has become uncomfortable to carry any longer. We are clueless as to what to do. The pain of moving forward appears to be more than we can handle we remain stagnated perched on that stool in fear. Afraid to push!

One thing is for sure if the seed that has been planted is not allowed to be birth it will die inside of you. Just like there was enmity between Eve’s seed and the serpent, there are forces with the express intent to keep you from birthing into your destiny and purpose. His deceptive tactics are always rooted in the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life. He is forever lurking to prevent you from giving birth.

Rather than stay perched on that stool or positioned with your feet in the stir-ups without any assistance, seek someone who can coach you into your destiny and purpose. Everyone needs someone to cry out, “Push, Your Name, push.” Even more, we need someone who is willing to put their lives on the line as the mid-wives did for Moses when they defied Pharaoh’s decree to kill all the male babies, Midwives are deliverers and protectors of the seeds of purpose.

There is so much greatness in everyone. My task, as a spiritual midwife, is to coach others to experience and become all God created them to be…all He envisioned for them. You see, each of us have been impregnated with seeds of purpose and need coaching through the gestation process to birthing out that which God has sanctioned from the foundation of the world.

Rather than stay perched on the stool, push your way into greatness. Need some help? I’m here to coach you to the greatness God envisioned even before you were born!

Have you ever worked with a coach? Are you looking to go to the next level, but feel you can’t do it alone? Are you ready to work with a coach?

Don’t Believe the Hype: Against All Odds | Showers’ Blessing Inspires | Jacqui Showers

“No one can ever tell me that a woman cannot raise a man,” my only brother stated at my mother’s 80th Birthday Celebration. “Because my mother raised me,” he added. On that day I don’t remember anything any of my sisters said nor can I remember anything I said, but my brother’s words continue to resonate loudly in my ears.

My brother communicated so eloquently all that my mother had taught him. Over the years in one conversation after another he has shared even more. I remember when he said that he told my mother that he wanted to be a “pimp.” According to my brother, my mother sat him down and explained in detail that was not a vocation he wanted to pursue. She told him the importance of loving and treating women with respect. After that conversation his mind was changed as well as the vocation he would pursue. He went on to attend Center for Creative Studies and became a Graphic Designer.

In a family where he was the only son of ten children—and a twin at that, he could have easily accepted the dismal statistic associated with a male growing up in a single parent home headed up by a woman. It would have been easy to use this as an excuse to treat women badly and not to excel in life.

Sometimes you just can’t believe in the “hype” of statistics; because if you do, they will be the governing force of your life. Yes, statistics have their place. You have to determine within yourself that their place is not to direct you down a pathological path of destruction, but one that catapults you to supersede the limitations inherent in the numbers.

Don’t get me wrong, I believe in research and I understand its importance. However, far too often it is used as an excuse not to excel. Behavioral issues are always qualified by statistics. When in actuality it is taking responsibility for your actions. Unfortunately, our society has provided a scapegoat for many of the ills that plague our communities. Repeatedly, via the media, our community, and yes our families, these limiting statistics are talked about even more than the liberating Words of God.

What if we transformed our words to quote God’s promises of an abundant life rather than statistics? What if, rather than presenting the glass half empty, we illustrate that it is three-quarters half filled? What if, we drowned out the negative statistical numbers and focused on those that defied the odds?

You know what would happen? I do! Those statistics would not determine the outcome of children, but the positive words we speak. You know what, all those jails that have been built to house young men, most notably young African-American men, would have to be torn down and money poured into colleges and universities because they would have chosen another path. Why? Because the transforming words spoken would propel them to choose a better alternative.

When we no longer glorify negative lifestyles depicted in the media and ultimately emerge into our society, we will begin to see transformation happen. Don’t believe the hype! Our words have power! Our lifestyles have power! Believe me they are more powerful than statistics.

My mother didn’t believe in them. Thank God, neither did my brother!

Are you allowing statistics to determine your destiny? Are you overcoming statistics?
