Great post from Beth Moore Jesus Got Me Thinking: “I’m going to be straight with you here after thirty years of ministry and a heap of observation. If you make your secret goal to sidestep controversy and to keep everybody liking you and nobody misunderstanding you, you’re going to lock yourself into such a jail cell of stale air that you will suffocate every last breath out of your calling. Your soul was made for more than three square inches of breathing space. If you’re trying to avoid a label, good luck with that. Social media has sentenced us to label hell. And, since there’s not much changing that, this is the one label we Jesus-followers can try to avoid: disobedient”
5 things every world changer does before 35 had me taking inventory of where I am at in life: “Contrary to what we might think, many of the heroic moments world-changers experience happen in midst of daily life. This means we too can be world-changers. It’s not a matter of luck or fate. It’s a matter of action and what we choose to do with the time we’re given.”
The Glorious Table has launched! Its hard to pick a favorite post from the first few weeks, but I found this quote as one that stood out: “I had forgotten how lonely it felt to walk into a room full of people and not have a single person really know you.”
Why Feeling Sorry For Yourself Makes You Destined To Fail from Donald Miller is a great read: “There will always be a reason to feel sorry for ourselves. And sometimes it really is appropriate to grieve something terrible that has happened in our lives. But we also have to move on, we have to set ourselves free from the trap of self pity.”
What are you saving these days?
