In this episode of 5 Min Fridays with Coach Myrna, we look at the, Bible story, of, Joseph, to see how God uses, coincidence, to get us to our, purpose and destiny. I show that there are, no coincidences in life, that every moment has been, preordained.
So, if you have been feeling unlucky because you had, coincidence, show up in your life that did not feel good, I want you to know that every event has a, purpose, and that is to take you to your, preordained destiny.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.
Bible Story Of Joseph and destiny
I want to use the, bible story, of, Joseph, the son of Jacob to show how God uses, coincidence. Joseph, was born with a purpose, prearranged by God. It was determined in his mother’s womb or before.
Because he was born to his father in his old age, his father Jacob loved him more than his 10 other brothers. That created jealousy. His brothers hated him because he was his father’s favorite. When Jacob made, Joseph, a beautiful robe of many colors, his brothers became even more jealous of him. Then Joseph, started dreaming about his brothers bowing down to him and he decided to share his, dreams.
Bad move, never share your, dreams, of success with others even family members because they will secretly hate you and want you dead. They may not try to kill you as Joseph’s brothers wanted to do, but maybe they would wish evil on you.
The good news is whatever God ordains no man can change.

How God Used Coincidence to get Joseph to his purpose and destiny
It is amazing how God orchestrated getting, Joseph, to fulfill his, purpose.
First, he got Joseph’s father Jacob to love him more, thereby creating a fire starter.
Then he gave, Joseph, dreams, and inspired him to share them with his brothers, creating hatred.
Then he gave his brothers opportunity to sell him into slavery by inspiring his father Jacob to send, Joseph, alone to find his brothers.
The slave traders then sold, Joseph, to the pharaoh’s captain of palace guard Potiphar.
How would, Joseph, get in position to fulfill his, purpose, if these apparent, coincidences, did not take place?
There are, no coincidences in life, everything is, preordained, in God’s plan.
What you think is bad luck is actually God getting you in position for greatness.
Joseph story of coincidences continues
Potiphar’s wife has the hots for, Joseph, but when he wouldn’t sleep with her, she seeks revenge by accusing him of trying to rape her and so Joseph is thrown into prison. The same prison that the Pharaoh sends prisoners from the palace.
Later Pharaoh throws his cup bearer and his baker in prison and who oversees them, Joseph!
Then God gives them both, dreams, and tells, Joseph, the interpretation of their, dreams. It so happens that in 3 days both, dreams, come through according to, Joseph’s interpretation. The cup bearer is returned to his role in the palace and the baker was killed.
A full 2 years later the Pharaoh had 2, dreams, that he needed interpreting and that is when the cup bearer remembered, Joseph, the Hebrew slave who interpreted his, dreams, in prison.
Pharaoh sends for, Joseph, who interprets his, dreams. Joseph, tells Pharaoh that the, dreams, meant God is notifying him there will be 7 bountiful years followed by 7 Years of severe famine.
Pharaoh then makes, Joseph, administrative head of Egypt second only to himself. Everyone needed to bow down to him.
God’s purpose for Joseph realized
God’s, purpose, for, Joseph, was to be the instrument that would save the Egyptians from all dying in the famine that was, preordained, before, Joseph, was born. The famine would have also have wiped out all of Abraham’s defendants as well and that would have made God’s promise to Abraham, that his defendants would be as numerous as the stars in the sky to be void, and how many of you know that God is not man, he does not lie. He used, coincidence, to move, Joseph, in position to realize his preordained, destiny.
Coincidence is to get you to your destiny
I wanted to share this story with you today to illustrate that you were born with a, purpose, and there are no, coincidence, in life. Every moment is, preordained. Think of all the, coincidences, God had to orchestrate for, Joseph, to fulfill his, purpose and destiny. Most of them not in, Joseph, favor.
My life has been the same. There were several, coincidences, that got me to my, purpose and destiny. If I was to pick up my story from the time I arrived in Canada from Guyana.
I met this girl working in a factory making zippers. She took me with her to look for a better job. That, coincidence, got me a job at Scotia Bank and she did not find work. While I was at Scotia Bank, I met my second husband who was 12 years older than me and schooled me in life and suggested I go back to college.
After college I started selling computers. the, coincidence, of how I met Tony Robbins. Tony came to town and sent free tickets to my company for his “unleash the power within” conference. Tony Robbins inspired me to unleash my power within and I became the top female limousine operator in Toronto Canada.
This, coincidence, brought me to Miami Florida. Miami was my Egypt, it is where I needed to be to fulfil my, purpose. I will stop here, but you get the picture. There are, no coincidences in life, every step in your journey is, preordained, and is God’s plan, even the steps you take backwards.
So, if you feel you have been lucky or if you feel that you are unlucky, I want you to know that every, coincidence, has a, purpose, and that is to take you to your, preordained destiny.

I Want to use the, bible story, of, Abraham, and his wife, Sarah, as the foundation for this revelation that if God Choses you, you can’t mess up your, destiny.
God said to, Abraham, “Regarding your wife Sarai, her name will no longer be Sarai from now on her name will be, Sarah, and I will bless her and give you a son from her! Yes, I will bless her richly, and she will become the mother of many nations. Kings of nations will be among her descendants.”
Sarah, was chosen like Mary was chosen as the mother of Jesus.
God then told, Abraham, to leave his father’s house and move to a foreign land, so Abraham moved around and lived as a foreigner in many places. While living in these places he introduced his wife, Sarah, as his sister because he did not want the men to kill him to get his wife.
Apparently, Sarah, at 90 years old was still beautiful and desirable. Don’t we all wish, men would be fighting for us when we are 90 years old!
Sarah taken to the King to be his wife
Abraham, was right because King Abimelech of Gerar sent for, Sarah, and had her brought to him in his palace with the intention of making her his wife.
But God stepped in! No one messes with God’s chosen vessel. God couldn’t have King Abimelech defile, Sarah, because then she would not be fit to be the mother of nations.
He appeared to Abimelech in a dream and told him “You are a dead man, for that woman you have taken is already married”
Abimelech responded that he was innocent, Abraham, told him she was his sister.
God replied “that is why I kept you from sinning against me, and why I did not let you touch her.”
The lord also released a curse on all the women of Gerar causing them to be infertile, because Abimelech had taken his chosen vessel, Sarah, to be his wife. Don’t mess with God’s chosen vessel, he will fight for you.
Abraham had to pray for them to be healed after, Sarah, was returned.
One year later Sarah became pregnant and named her son Isaac. She fulfilled her, purpose and destiny, by becoming the mother of many nations and God kept his covenant promise he made to, Abraham.
You Can’t mess up your Destiny
This story illustrates that whatever, purpose, God has for you, if you are, chosen, you can’t mess it up. God will fight for you.
You could make boneheaded decisions, like go back to an, unhealthy relationship, because better is not showing up. God will find a way to get you out, because he has a, purpose, for your life.
You could give up on your child because they have gone down the wrong path, but God can reach them in a dream and inspire them to fulfil the, purpose, he has for their life.
When we talk about the, renewing of the mind, it is not simply about changing or adjusting how you think, but renewing your sense of, self-consciousness. Renewing your mind, impacts your conscience, which is your sense of what is right and wrong. It impacts your heart, which in Hebrew literature is the center of your being.
Renewing your mind, runs much deeper than simply making confessions and changing how you think upon a thing. Apostle Paul teaches “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”
Pastor William L Glover speaks on the biblical principles of what God meant when He said “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Pastor Glover just completed a powerful series on, renewing the mind, it was a four part series, you can watch the full series on the Mount Hermon Ministries YouTube Channel. But today we’re going to pick some of the important pieces of that, renewing your mind, series to share with you.

Myrna – My first question to you Pastor Glover is why did why do you think God wanted you to preach on, renewing your mind?
Pastor Glover – that’s an excellent question Myrna. I ended the 2020 year with a series of messages entitled, living in your redemption. The idea being that God had already paid the price for redemption and that he’s redeemed our lives from destruction.
Whatever destruction has occurred in our lives, be it:
God has already invested in the price to redeem and restore us from that destruction. That message was received so well that I began to contemplate well how do I get people to embrace that, mindset, and the, renewing your mind, messages were born. If a person can hear something, but if it’s not internalized and if it’s not received, then it’s not going to have an impact on their lives.
So that series of, renewing your mind, messages was born out of that realization of moving people from the point of where they are, to living in the redemption and, renewing their minds.

Myrna – you talked about the three different parts of the, mind, that God wants renewed.
Can you share with us the three different parts of the, mind?
Pastor Glover – Sure there are different aspects to each individual sermon, but the broad overview is the reason the, mind, is important is found in the wisdom literature. Scripture reveals that the, mind, is connected to and influences:
and our heart
When we talk about, renewing of the mind, it is not simply about changing or adjusting how you think, but it impacts your sense of, self-consciousness. It impacts your, conscience, which is your sense of what is right and wrong. It impacts your heart, which in Hebrew literature is the center of your being.
So, renewing your mind, runs much deeper than simply making confessions and changing how you think upon a thing. Apostle Paul teaches “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the, renewing of your mind”

What is the Flexible mind, the Fluid Mind and the Fixed Mind?
We need to have a conversation about what kind of, mindset, you are working with.
Is your, mindset, flexible?
Is your, mindset, fluid?
Or do you have a, fixed mindset? Which could be good or bad depending on what it’s fixed on.
When we talk about the, psyche, the, psyche, being your sense of, self-consciousness. Why do we need, renewing of your mind, in your sense of, self-consciousness? Because it’s our sense of awareness, our sense of, self-worth. It also is our mental and emotional health, so if your, mind, is not flexible, you need work in your sense of awareness.

The Flexible Mindset
Some people who are not self-aware or there’s some people who suffer from, low self-esteem, or there’s some people who are damaged mentally and emotionally. If you don’t have a, flexible mindset, which means pliable then you will resist God doing the eternal work in your, psyche, to, transform your mind. So, in order for, transformation, to occur you have to have a, flexible mindset.
There can be no, transformation, if you’re unwilling to change.
The Fluid Mindset
Conversely a, fluid mindset, means that you are evolving, you are open to change. If you don’t have a, fluid mindset, you internalize and have what some call “stinking thinking.” You have a toxic, mindset, about yourself or about people. For instance oftentimes when people experience hurt in a relationship, they’ll say I’ll never trust another man again or I’ll never trust another woman again.
So, if you don’t have a, fluid mindset, you’re not willing to let that hurt go and embrace truth.
The Fixed Mindset
The third, mindset, you mentioned was a, fixed mindset. Just like when we lay concrete, we have to do the work before the concrete sets, because once it sets it’s fixed. So, we have to be careful what we let set in our minds. We have to do the work while the concrete is fluid and pliable.
A, fixed mindset, is like set concrete.
Renewing the mind, is like renovation of a house. You’ve got to rip out things, knock down walls or beliefs before you can put in the new things or new learnings.
When we’re inviting God to, transform your mind, then we have to understand our, psyche, our, self-consciousness, and our heart. That’s why the, mind, is so important because it is connected to all of these aspects of the human person and they’re all interrelated yet distinct.
Myrna – Someone with a, fixed mindset, like concrete why did you say that God can use this person?
In the, Life coaching, world, when we talk about a, fixed mindset, we’re saying that there’s no growth in this person. But if your, mind, is set like concrete, is it possible for it to be changed?
Pastor Glover – Well yes but again you must have awareness of your, fixed mindset. You can get at that concrete two different ways. Through, transformation, which speaks to internal work that has to be done. The word, transformation, comes from the Greek word metamorphosis and so that speaks of going through a, transformation, but it starts from the inside out.
The other word that’s used is, renewing, which literally has to do with renovating. When concrete sets, the only way to change it is to get a jackhammer and that’s very painful work. People oftentimes will not choose to do that work, because it is painful, noisy, and messy. But if you’re going to lay a new foundation in your life, you must do the, mental, emotional and spiritual work to jackhammer a, fixed mindset.
Myrna – How can God jackhammer to change that, fixed mindset?
Fixed mindset in marital relationships
Pastor Glover – I think an example in the context of, relationships, particularly in the context of, marital relationships, a lot of work that has to be jackhammered in counseling sessions really has to do those, fixed mindsets, about marriage that have been set, but are toxic and are not healthy.
Couples have very different ideas about the foundation of a, marriage, and what it should be about. It is really about how men and women are socialized in our society. Young girls are socialized towards inter interdependent relationships. That’s means they play together, they share much more readily than men do. They are invested in group success as they are reared and everybody kind of having a good time.
Boys are socialized totally different. They are taught to stand on your own two feet, be independent. Be a man, don’t share your emotions. So, men are much less equipped than women in, marital relationships, to handle a, fixed mindset, that’s why women are 10 times more verbal than men.
One of the fun exercises I like to do when I’m dealing with, communication, is I’ll ask the man and the woman to get a sheet of paper and have each one writes me all the feeling words they are aware of. The woman’s list is four times longer than the man,

How can God Use a Fixed Mindset?
I’m curious though you also say in your message that God can use a, fixed mindset.
Pastor Glover – When you lay concrete, it’s properly set, it is suitable for what you want to build on it. So, let’s pull in this conversation, purpose and destiny. If you have great purpose or great destiny, you have to take the time to lay the foundation. If your foundation is fixed, God can build on it.
People do not take the time to factor in the type of foundation they need to lay to accommodate their dreams and visions of what they want. That can be applied to anything, in my book “30 Days of Excellence” I teach that excellence is in the foundation that you lay for, purpose and destiny.
Be ye not conformed to the world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Why did God say that do not be transformed to the world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind?
The World is Battling for your Mind
Pastor William L Glover – Because it is all a battle for the, mind. This simple principle is found in Proverbs.
“As a man thinketh so is he”
Your, mindset, determines the reflection of who you are and it determines who you will be.
We would never be greater than our thoughts about things.
We would never rise above our thoughts about things.
We will never allow ourselves to be pulled beneath our thoughts about things.
Our thoughts reflect where we are going.
It’s a battle for your, mind. The world we live in today, people don’t want to do the work, to think for themselves. There is professional, think tanks, and these, think tanks, think for people and feed them what to believe, what to say.
They all are vying for our, minds, we don’t tune in to learn anymore from the news, we tune in to determine what we need to think. So, hence “do not be conformed to the world, but be transformed by the, renewing of your mind.
happens through the word of God,
that transformation happens through your relationship with God
that transformation happens through a community of faith like-minded believers who are committed to growth.

Your, heart, which is the center of your being, the seat of your soul and this is important because wisdom literature teaches us that we should guard your heart for from it flow the issues of life.
Everything that matters, that’s important to us impacts our, heart. If the, heart, is injured, broken or unhealthy because the, heart, plumps the pumps the blood. The, heart, pumps the influence of that thing to your spirit and to your soul and to your body.
So, when we talk about the, transformation, then it’s holistic and God is always at work in our lives trying to move us to a place of wholeness in all three of these areas as it pertains to renewal and, transformation.

I enjoyed the conversation, so thank you like we’ve known each other for 14 years let me also state how proud I am of you forging the way. I remember when you began this journey and witnessing your evolution and growth. Witnessing how God is enlarging your territory, makes me very proud. I want to encourage you to continue that journey.
Myrna – Thank you Pastor and I’ll share something publicly with you that when I wrote my book and you said that you’re proud of me, it brought tears to my eyes because it was the first
Time someone told me that. My father had never said he was proud of me.
As my spiritual father thank you so much for saying that I appreciate it. God sent me to you specifically I didn’t share our story of how I came to be under your guidance, but our connection has a purpose.

So Say hello to spotless, translucent skin with a healthy glow and celebrate every day with your new health.
Myrna – Can you give us a short intro into your journey into becoming a, business mentor.
Lola – I became an, woman entrepreneur, by accident. I never desired to work for myself, I was not really exposed to the world of the, entrepreneur. I just had a passion to do more than what I was doing in my nine to five job. Little did I know that passion to do more would create additional streams of income that would surpass my 9 to 5 income.
I started taking the role of a, business mentor, and having the ability to influence others seriously. I’m generally the type of leader who is bold enough to have the conversations most people might be ashamed of. I’m bold enough to tell you that I was bankrupt. I’m bold enough to tell you that I was sleeping in the back seat of my car for months. I am bold enough to give you the level of transparency, not just so you know my business; but so that you can take the wisdom from my mistakes and stand on my shoulder. What I’ve been able to accomplish by 35, you can accomplish double by 40. That’s the power of a, business mentor. The real power of, mentorship, has the ability to cut your success time in half. What took me five years to do, will take you two and a half years to do.
Creating a business strategy for woman entrepreneurs
Myrna – One of the reasons that people come into the coaching conversation is because they’re hoping that someone will speed up their journey.
Tell us how you transitioned from not wanting to be an, entrepreneur, and starting the TMRWlive experience.
Lola – What I am really on a mission to do is I want to begin to teach and show, women entrepreneurs, that you can have a level of sacrifice, you can have determination; but you can do it while still prioritizing yourself.
Still prioritizing your well-being for some, entrepreneurs, you need to be working your business while still working your full-time job. It’s not time for you to jump out completely and just work your business full-time.
So I think there’s a, business strategy, as we begin to evolve and grow that we can really embrace, entrepreneurship; but we can embrace it with practical thinking and practical thinking.

Mentoring women entrepreneurs to have a growth mindset
One of the first things we work on with the, women entrepreneurs, who come into my, mentorship, program is having a, growth mindset. A, growth Mindset, says that I will do what is necessary to grow my business. And if that means delegating tasks, then I am willing to do that. I tell them, your business is not your baby. If I pull a group of moms in a room and I to ask a group of moms if your baby was in the middle of the street and a car coming 60 miles an hour, what are you going to do? The organic response is I’m going to push my baby out and I’m going to be willing to die for my baby.
That is the natural response. We have had this thought about our business, we’re willing to give up our marriage for a business. We’re willing to neglect ourselves, neglect our health, neglect our finances etc. We got to put a business in the place that it belongs. Your business is not your baby, your business is your business you need a, growth mindset, to know the difference.
Myrna – I wrote a book that’s called “Minding My Own Business” because I’ve always been of the, mindset, that you can’t become wealthy working

What is a Growth Mindset
Let’s understand the, growth mindset. How you teach somebody that feels that their business is their baby to change their, mindset?
Lola – I’m not a, mindset coach, so the first thing I do is to recognize my level of genius. I partner with a, growth mindset, coach. Her name is Sean Strickland and she works with my clients on their, growth mindset. He works with your, mindset, around money, your capacity for growth etc.
You have to be committed to the journey. Your journey might look different from another person’s journey; but if you stay committed to your journey you will achieve success.
One of my, growth mindset, tools is prayer. I’m a woman of faith, it’s ingrained in everything I do and everything that I think. Partnering with God has been the biggest superpower in my entire career.
How to Pray as a Woman Entrepreneur
Myrna – You mentioned that you are a faith-based leader. How should we pray as a, woman entrepreneur? You said that you teach women to shift the way they pray. How should, women entrepreneurs, shift they way they pray for their businesses?
Lola – A mentor of mine, her name is Dr Tiffany Jordan she is a, prayer strategist. Before meeting her I had never been exposed to this concept of a, prayer strategy. A, prayer strategy, is a way that you pray for different things you want in life. There is a way, woman entrepreneurs, should be praying as it pertains to their business. I had never been exposed to the concept of a, prayer strategy, before.
I said the same prayers like, Lord bless me and bless my business and I thought that was good enough; but there is a way that you can activate the word of God as it pertains to your business. I had never been exposed a, prayer strategy, before I met Dr Tiffany Jordan. Check out her “book of prayers”.
About 3 years ago, I started losing my hair. A dermatologist confirmed I had Alopecia. This dampened my spirits; but instead of becoming depressed and sad, I wanted to regrow my hair along my personality and mood.
That’s how my bald and bougie collection was born. My shirt collection is made for people like me, who suffer from Alopecia. It is my way of offering them something to smile about and hold their bald heads high.
As a resident of Atlanta. GA, I want to offer my collection to help women, men and kids who are suffering hair loss due to alopecia, cancer, or any type of disease a shirt from my BALD AND BOUGIE… collection. Visit www.baldandbougie.com
Resources for Women Entrepreneurs
Myrna – What are some resources, women entrepreneurs, can use to scale their business and have a, growth mindset?
The first one is partnering with God.
The second thing is learning not to get validation from Instagram and other social media sites. I tell people don’t get lost in the social media celebrity world.
Third – Find the, language for your purpose.
Language for your purpose, means speaking life into your, purpose and destiny.
I started going through levels of, inner healing. I didn’t even know I needed, inner healing. These where things from your childhood like self-sabotage and rejection. All these things that started coming up as I started to get to the next level in my business.
I had, limiting beliefs, about money and she helped me break through that. I learned a, prayer strategy, to remove my, limiting beliefs, about money and other childhood trauma.
The prophetic word for women entrepreneurs
The final resource for, women entrepreneurs is the, prophetic word. Prophet Katara Ho literally changed my life and changed my entire business, because she has exposed me to the world of the, prophetic. The, prophetic, energy can really propel you to your next level in business.
Myrna – language for your purpose, I love that phrase. It’s a way of saying that you should speak it into the atmosphere! You’ve gotta be be careful
that you’re not saying that, it’s not possible or you can’t do it or it’s too hard etc.
The, inner healing, part is also big because most, women entrepreneurs, have some kind of hurt in the past that prevents us from reaching the top of our lids.
Whether it’s childhood trauma, whether it’s betrayal by men, whether it’s where we were born on what side of the tracks.
Specifically as, black women, we’ve got some things that we’ve got to overcome So, the inner healing, is so important.
Business Strategy with Kris Jenner
Tell us about your collaboration with, Kris Jenner, and your two-day event TMRWlive virtual event.
Lola – I put together this conference for, women entrepreneurs, of faith. It was life-changing and it was amazing. The first TMRWlive was a success and
two weeks after that first conference, I was already thinking and planning for the next one.
One day I woke up and, Kris Jenner, came to me. I am not a Kardashian fan. I don’t dislike them, I just don’t watch TV. So it was not natural for me to to think of, Kris Jenner. I could not shake the thought for weeks, so talked to one of my spiritual mentors and and she gave me a, prophetic, word. She told me, you’re going to work with her; but not now it’s going to be later.
It was clear that God wanted this woman to be the main speaker of the next TMRWlive experience. I needed to teach women of faith they could learn, business strategy, from, Kris Jenner. I knew that, Kris Jenner, had the goods to teach and to get, women entrepreneurs, to the next level as it pertains to, business strategy.
Like her or not you can’t deny what she’s done for the Kardashians family. Most of us can’t create generational wealth to pay for a funeral when
somebody transitions without doing a GoFundMe.
Faith based leadership for women entrepreneurs
Pastor Sarah Jakes Roberts is also one of the speakers.
This conference is not for every woman, this is for the woman that literally feels called to have more wealth and need a, growth mindset, so that she
can have more impact and influence. This is not for the, woman entrepreneur, who just wants more money for nice cars and purses.
This is the time when God is raising up kingdom-minded millionaires and billionaires, so that we can have more impact here on earth.
This conference is not just something inspires you, it’s meant to give, women entrepreneurs, the, business strategy, to do the work. We’re going to pray and worship and love God; but after all of that you’re going to wipe the tears away and you’re going to get in this workshop. You’re going to create a, business plan, you get to create the, social media strategy and you’ve got to get your, business formations, in order.
