What’s Next… Actions!

Because of the conclusions i made in the past and shared yesterday these actions have been and are required of me to now manage them. My beloved wife pointed out after yesterday’s post that i also made a decision to blog so that my children and grandchildren could remember me after i’m gone. So i guess that “What’s Next” is for me to simply manage that decision as well as a few others and not look for anything new. Being a creative person i eventually end up looking for the “new” when the things at hand have nothing wrong with them. So… to sooth my urge for something new we rearranged the Onething Campus and Café Holy Grounds. It was refreshing to walk in today and experience “new.”

i have concluded that nothing less than loving the Lord my God with all my heart, my mind, my soul and my strength, that i may love others as myself in everything I say and do will satisfy.

These other things are just an extensions of that.

i honor the past but i don’t live in it.

i live in the now, the present with simple glances toward the future.

i view past events – successes and failures – as stepping-stones not stop signs.

i pursue learning to be transformed not in order to know.

i am a person of engagement not observation.

i focus on what could be and not on what has been.

i am not limited or restricted by the walls of any building. my influence is not restricted by location.

i am concerned by how many i send into the world not how many come to a location.

i help raise up world changers not tour guides.

i view each day, not as good or bad, but as a day of grace.

i am a person of destiny not history.

i have concluded that i would rather reach for the impossible and fail, than succeed by settling for less.

i have concluded that nothing less than Thy Kingdom come, His will be done in our world as it is in heaven will satisfy.

i have concluded that i have not discovered some new way but rather i have rediscovered the path followed by Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

This path is a path of liberty, freedom, and healing.

On this path i find significance, purpose and destiny.

It is the path less traveled, yet it is not a path that is only available to a select few.

It is a path that whosoever will. 

Regardless of where i am in my journey there is room for me on this path.

i am Experiencing Intentional Living!

“If we fall short, let it be said of us that we failed because we dreamed too big, tried too hard, believed too greatly, compromised too little, prayed too long, and sacrificed too much. Let it be said of us that we were fools for Christ, foolish enough, in fact, to have trusted God for the impossible. We are interested in nothing less.” – Dr. Earl Creps
