I’m not interested in engaging in any toxic cycles or wasting time. The clients of Koinonia Training and Consulting have been working extremely hard on identifying cycles of worry, uprooting self-sabotaging behaviors, and “branding” for the future. During this unusual time, COVID-19 has caused extreme sorrow and loss on a global scale.
The economic effects of COVID-19 will be long-lasting, but as a believer, I believe God will sustain me, and the rest of my brothers and sisters of the faith, even in the midst of famine. The prayers of the righteous avail much (James 5:16) and His truth endures to all generations (Psalm 100:5). Moreover, it will take more than prayer to see the manifestation of God’s promise. Your God-given purpose requires you to become more disciplined, more engaged, more loving, less hesitant, instantly obedient, and most of all – willing.

Reach Out and Empathize
There has been so much death surrounding this virus. Even though it may seem like a scene out of a horror film, it’s the reality we live in. Be sensitive to the people around you. Believe it or not, there are people in your circle that are literally one check away from being homeless, without transportation, without medical insurance or out of their mind.
You are a light in this dark world, so shine.
End the Toxic Cycles
Have you ever watched someone repeat a toxic cycle… and you couldn’t help them? I live by this quote from Octavia Butler, “Drowning people sometimes die fighting their rescuers.” Just like any other dependable person, I’ve inherited quite a few scars from individuals that I was assigned to help. Even though those experiences were ugly, I realize how important it is to not repeat those cycles.
You can’t love someone out of their toxicity, only God can do that. Don’t waste your time trying to help someone that is too immature to recognize the value of your time, money and conversation. Focus on your goals, dreams and the key individuals that play a huge role in those dreams.
Now is the time to make fruitful connections. I believe that all entrepreneurs have to stick together! When you know your purpose, you’re less likely to compete. Why? Because no one can be you, and that is your superpower. You’re a movement by yourself, but think of the force that Christian leaders can become together?
