My Heart for Others

I was a Modern-Day Jonah for many years (and at times I’m still a Modern-Day Jonah).  God had placed a calling on my life and I choose to disobey Him.  This caused "storms" in my life and in the lives of those around me.  For years I fought the thought of giving God control.  Why?  Because I didn’t want to give up control.  Do you know what happens as I give God more control?  I get more control!  It doesn’t make sense from the human mindset, but it makes perfect sense from God’s word. 

 

There are brothers and sisters in Christ who are hurting and struggling in their everyday lives.  They are tired.  They are in the midst of a storm and don’t know what to do.  If you have ever been there you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about.  So, it’s time for Christians to start helping other Christians when they are down. 

 

God has placed a burden on my heart to tell others they aren’t alone in their daily struggles.  To share with them my personal story of conflict, anxiety, and misery.  To explain to them the process and obstacles of turning back to God.  To be vulnerable, humble, authentic and relatable in my words.   Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you want to discuss this topic more.  

 

Who Needs to Hear This? 

  1. those who are actively walking away from God

  2. those who are actively walking towards God

 

Problems

The first problem: Christians’s who have made the deliberate choice to ignore God’s calling on their life.  They are creating “storms” in their lives and the lives of others.  Now they are stuck and aren’t sure what to do next. 

 

The second problem: Christian’s who are walking with God but don’t know how to talk with the Modern-Day Jonah.  The standard answer of “get in God’s word and pray more” doesn’t address the issue at hand. 

 

Solutions

The first solution: tell and show others they aren’t alone.  The way they got where they are might but unique, but the results in their lives are the same.  They need someone to listen to them, to guide them, to love them, and to show them there is hope and a way back to God.  (Jonah had to be thrown out of the boat.  Why?)

 

The second solution: training and educating Christians on how to “handle” a Modern-Day Jonah.  You don’t wag your finger and say “get your heart right with God.”  All that does is drive them further away from God.  We must learn to listen, show the love of Christ, and offer sound, Biblical advice. 

 

Why is this relevant? 

Every Christian has their struggles IF they are honest.  However, most don’t know how to handle their circumstances or whom to talk with.  Their lives are filled with stress, anxiety, conflict, and misery. They have issues communicating with their spouse, their kids, and those at work.  They aren’t sleeping well, eating well, or exercising.  

 

The pressures of life are bearing down on them and they have started to wonder “where is God” in their lives.   They have pushed the thought of getting right with God to the very back of their minds.  They spend their time and energy addressing “problems” which are really just symptoms caused by not being right with God. 

 

They need a path out.  They need to learn Bible-Based, Christ-Centered strategies and techniques to address turning back to God.  They need to know they aren’t alone and that others have been there, done that, and are now living life full of hope and joy.  

About Nathan

"It is my privilege to recommend to your ministry, or organization, Brother Nathan Tabor. God has done a unique work in Nathan’s life. I believe it is beneficial to hear the perspective of a man who has experience and success in business, politics, and many other areas, and yet found himself empty. A person’s most powerful witness is their testimony. I encourage you to allow Nathan to share how God is rewriting Nathan’s story. Everyone needs to be reminded that God has not given up on them, even if everyone else has."

Daniel Hawtree, 

Head Pastor of Kerwin Baptist Church,

Kernersville, NC

Contact Nathan about delivering a talk uniquely tailored to your audience. Whether it’s a sermon at your church, a keynote at your conference or a training seminar, Nathan will not disappoint. 

Nathan is an experienced speaker and trainer who motivates, inspires, and transforms his audiences in an engaging, and challenging way.  

 

This is achieved by Nathan showing his vulnerability with personal stories of struggles, challenges, and conflicts caused by his own actions.  This allows him to connect with the audience.  See, if we aren't willing to discuss our failures and fears in our own life, then why should someone even consider the advice we are giving them about making their life better. 

 

The goal is to engage and educate others with the knowledge that turning back to God and submitting to His will is the only way they are going to find control in their lives.  Read Nathan's story here.

"Nathan Tabor is a Christian with a poignant personal story. He grew up a preacher’s kid, has a remarkable account of business success as an entrepreneur and was a candidate for the United States Congress. However, lying beneath the veneer of all his successes, was a young man headed for catastrophic crisis. Today, by the grace of God, he is an eminent success in all the things that really matter: peace of heart, relationship with wife and daughter, and personal walk with Jesus Christ, his Lord."

Howard Wilburn, Retired Pastor, Salem Baptist, Winston-Salem, NC
Past Present, Piedmont International University, Winston-Salem, NC
