Stuff God has been teaching me/reminding me of… (Part 1)

God is always speaking to us & trying to teach us new things – here are just a few of the things He has been teaching me & reminding me of lately…

  • No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived all that God has in store for those who love Him…” (1 Cor. 2:9) “You have no idea how HUGE I am & how HUGE my plans are!” We need to dream bigger dreams!
  • If God says to go after Moby Dick in a row boat  – BRING THE TARTAR SAUCE BABY!
  • Right now God is at work… doing things that I am COMPLETELY unaware of… but will reap the results of when He thinks I am ready.
  • Someone addicted to routine and ritual will never be a change agent in God’s church! Find one in the Bible – go ahead – try!
  • God doesn’t need me… I need Him!  Desperately!
  • I am NOT the source of one single blessing in my life – GOD IS!!!
  • Balance is a myth! Look at Jesus or anyone God used in the Bible – their lives were completely out of balance in God’s direction.
  • When you play around with sin… there are always consequences! ALWAYS!
  • If I can accomplish “HIS vision” without HIS help ——- then it isn’t “HIS vision!”
  • Passive husbands and fathers suck! (Sorry! Just being honest about it!)
  • He leads me step by step – NOT in three to five year plans! Long range planning is for those who try to keep God in a box.
  • He is Sovereign and is not surprised by anything!

Those are just a few of the many things God has been teaching me & reminding me of lately. I’ll share some more tomorrow… (stay tuned)

    I love this. I tell people all the time when they say that there church is the right way and the anothers r wrong. How do u know Gods plan for anyone but yourself. He works with me different than he dose with u. I wish people would understand yes we r in this together but God has his plan for us one at a time. He is big enough to work with us one at a time. If everyboby would get this we would come together as one

    You have pointed out and reminded me of some things I need to rememberr. My Ministry, TruBromance is about men. It is about meeting men in their pain where they are, standing with them and then teaching them how they are created and helping them identify who they are to become. I would like to talk to you about this sometime.
