Sandi Lucas: Understanding the Season Of Your Calling

Sandi Lucas: Understanding the Season Of Your Calling

On this episode of By His Grace, I interview Sandi Lucas. Sandi Lucas is the founder and CEO of the Blaze Planner. Sandi’s journey in founding The Blaze Planner® was many years in the making.  In fact, she has been on a quest to design a planner for women that could help them live intentionally for the glory of God since she was in her twenties.  An avid student of time management and organization tips, she has amassed a library full of books, attended many seminars, and found herself still struggling to “keep it all together.”  Then she discovered the great paradox – when you surrender to God in ALL areas of life …. You WIN – no matter if every little thing is in its place or not.  Vowing to share this revolutionary approach with young and more seasoned women alike, Sandi created the foundation for this planner called The Blaze Lighthouse Process™ – that equips women to put the principles of the Bible into practice every day.

Sandi balanced this approach herself while raising her children and working full time in the high technology industry.  She has lead sales teams for Fortune 100 and 200 companies and was a senior leader in the semiconductor realm for over 30 years.  She is involved in her local church and leads a prayer group in her county that focuses on biblical public policy.

Sandi is married to her husband of over 30 years and has 4 grown daughters and one precious grandson.  She and her husband Luke reside in a small town near Houston, Texas

We discuss purpose, seasons, and calling, the components of The Blaze planner, and how the Lord has worked in Sandi’s life in the area of organization. 

Key Takeaways

  • “Maybe you have a call on your life, but it is not the right time.” 
  • “We are ambassadors for Christ. We are to occupy until He comes again.” 
  • “Your little bitty everyday decisions are what keeps you on the narrow path for a lifetime.” 
  • “Even the good things can be the enemy of the best.”

Misty Phillip: Walk in Your God Given Purpose and Calling

Misty Phillip: Walk in Your God Given Purpose and Calling

On this episode of By His Grace, I did something a bit different and recorded a solo episode. I share the importance of walking in our calling and knowing our purpose. I also share about how you can work with me to launch or grow a podcast.

Key Takeaways 

“Don’t allow the enemy to hold you back in fear or distract you from fulfilling your purpose.”

“Walking in our purpose requires grit, hard work, determination, and perseverance, but in our own strength, we are pitiful. It is the Holy Spirit fire and resurrection power that lives within us that equips us to do every good thing.”

“We are all running a race and we need to keep our eyes fixed on Jesus.”

“Our calling is a divinely inspired strong inner impulse that leads us to action in our vocation or profession.” 

“Our callings should inspire us to do amazing things in the Kingdom of God.”

“God has you here for a purpose and He has work for you to do. God doesn’t just want to you just survive, He wants you to thrive in your calling.”
