We Take For Granted

The beauty all around us. Simple things like a blue sky. Tall Bulding.  Fun colors.  I love the architecture of this city. Today, sit back and admire the beauty. 

Go be great. 

When God Calls Your Name

make sure you answer. God first called Samuel’s name when he was a young boy. It changed everything for everyone around. Samuel listened for God all of his life and had an incredible journey from anointing kings to advising them. Again, this is a drawing based on work by photography by James C Lewis.

Color in Some Spaces

Remember that maps are designed to tell where things are. A map gives you an idea of the distance between one thing and another. It also tells you of all the possibilities.

Color in the spaces on your map by putting your feet into action. Go places and learn what it has to offer. One of the things I love about traveling the US is the rich history of each location. Every place has it’s own story to tell.

Part of this journey is making those stories your own. I still have 15 states out of the 50 to see visit. Many of those states are in the great northwest. I look forward to the adventure.

Go Fast Furious Faithful

to whatever God called you to.  Be all in even if you don’t believe Him for it.

Plane tooThis month I am reading Becoming by Michelle Obama. I am struck by her determination to do things. I love the story about how she fought with her great aunt over piano lessons.  Be so fired up for your cause that you are at the recital sitting on the piano bench in front of the audience before you realize you don’t know where middle C is.

As the BSF teaching leader reminded us last week, remember it is not about the achievement, it is about the journey. Be true to the journey.

The other book I read this month was Frederick Douglass Prophet of Freedom. He was another so determined in his cause that the journey was fascinating. He took the initiative to learn to read and write even though it was illegal.  He didn’t want to miss anything.

That is the way we need to be.  Be true to your journey.
