I decided to blog from my patio… this is the perfect morning. There is a slight chill in the air, a gentle breeze, the birds are waking. I felt like the time spent outside would be much better on my mind, than to rush off to my office. How right I was!
Momentum: Never Faint, Loosen, or Relax!
Everybody seemed to love yesterdays blog: Guess What? You’re a Guaranteed Winner! From the facebook comments, I could so feel like people were saying, “Please encourage me, build me up!”
Really, when I wrote that message, I had no idea about how many people were right now suffering with a loser spirit. I personally hate it when this happens to me… whenever I’m doing my very best for God, my family, and this world… and my efforts seem to be fruitless.
Galatians 6:9 (Amplified version) And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint.
- Don’t lose heart, grow weary, and faint… in acting nobly and doing right!
- There is a due time, an appointed season when we will see the reward of our noble efforts!
- We will definitely reap the harvest, only if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint!
Any time you’re acting nobly and doing right… it’s always making a difference! Positive in is positive out! Action causes reaction! But not usually right away… ask any farmer about the time gap between planting and harvesting!
There is a huge KEY to breakthrough waiting to be grasped here in Galatians 6:9… Don’t FAINT, LOOSEN, or RELAX! Read it again, focusing on those three words… and watch what happens!
Forward momentum is always the reward of FAITH and ENDURANCE! Backward momentum is the penalty of FEAR and INCONSISTENCY!
We have to break the destructive cycle of starting up noble and right actions… and then fainting, and loosening, and relaxing every time we encounter opposition and delay!
Do the noble things, do the right things… every day, every month, every hour, every second… without wavering… without fainting, loosening, and relaxing!
We have to believe in our dream before many others believe in our dream… we have to plant our dream and water our dream and nurture our dream… and sacrifice for our dream, long before it YIELDS a harvest! We have to get up everyday and ENCOURAGE OURSELVES in the wee hours of each morning! We have to pray UNTIL something happens! This is the ONLY way we will ever see the big things happen in our lives!
Journal & Announcement
Last Night! The church meeting with Pastor David Kumar from India… it was so beautiful! My only regret is that we were not able to spread the news to enough people before he came. I wish everyone could have attended those two very special meetings! May God bless David as he heads back to India soon.
Tonight! The anticipation has been building around Destiny Family Center for about a month! We’re finally starting a 13 week Wednesday night series: The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership! This is a John Maxwell DVD curriculum: a 10 minute DVD for each session, then some additional teaching from ME, and we’ll be breaking into small groups for discussion. I’m beside myself over what this is going to mean to so many of my dear friends! Each night starts at 7pm pronto… see you here?
Thats all for today you guys! I just finished praying for everyone… have a most triumphant day!
Dream Big, Live Bold, and Make the Difference!
