21 things God has been teaching me & reminding me of…

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…

1)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!

2) If God says to go after Moby Dick in a row boat with a pair of finger nail clippers – BRING THE TARTAR SAUCE BABY!

3) 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.

4) Someone addicted to routine and ritual will never be a change agent in God’s church! Find one in the Bible – go ahead – try!

5) God doesn’t need me… I need Him!  Desperately!

6) I am NOT the source of one single blessing in my life – GOD IS!!!

7) 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.

8) When you play around with sin… there are always consequences! ALWAYS!

9) If I can accomplish “HIS vision” without HIS help ——- then it isn’t “HIS vision!”

10) Passive husbands and fathers suck! (Sorry! Just being honest about it!)

11) God 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.

12) God is Sovereign and is not surprised by anything!


14) God often works through the “impossible” to accomplish the “unbelievable!”

15) The difficult we will do right now – the impossible may take a little while.

16) I need to live in faith… NOT in fear!

17) The key to continually taking my marriage to the next level is to stop seeking things from her – and to start going all out to serve her!

18) My responsibility as a leader is to set the next generation up for success.

19) So goes the leader–so goes the people.

20) I need to relax more & have fun more!!!

21) I can’t believe I get to do this (Lead Pastor of an awesome church) for a living!

Can’t wait to see what He says next!!!
