whatever it takes . . .


Fini . . .

This principle has been killing me right now . . . I did a post on it a while back and it’s probably the most prominent thing God has been teaching me in this season in my life . . .

. . . And so for this I have decided to put my blog on hold. I feel it’s not worth my time right now. That’s not to say I won’t pick it up . . . even soon . . . but it will probably be by request.

If you want to follow my life/thoughts, do it here.

Paul took a few years to be developed in ministry before he ever started training and leading other leaders . . . before he ever started writing books or blogging.

Who am I to be dishing out nuggets to you cyberspace wisdom seekers? If you are an avid blog reader here are a few blogs that I stay up on. These people are much more read-worthy than myself:

Perry Noble

Tony Morgan

Brad Cooper

Mark Driscoll

Mark Batterson

Boom . . . Roasted

Anyone who has been a part of a creative team knows that this is STRAIGHT UP TRUFE!

Not to mention it’s flippin’ hilarious . . . If these principles are not applied, this is how your work can turn out . . .

Oral sex . . .

Came across this article . . . from listening to this guy . . . from this church . . . SHOCKING!!

They’re going thru it . . . should we remain silent about it?

Or dodge the issue by calling it “it” . . .

Wow . . . That’s Nails!

Y’all read this right now if you desire to be a leader or you are a leader in any capacity (especially someone who is responsible for leading leaders)

I’m learning this concept like crazy right now!

SEXED . . .

got a chance to head down to Anderson Wednesday night to check out Fuse there . . . We’re now doing Fuse on Sunday nights in GVL (I’ll blog about this soon) and consequently it offers a little more free time during the week . . . so I’m taking the trek down every week to be a student of the game . . .

God is doing some amazing things through this guy and his team . . . over 700 students were there on Wednesday to get their taste buds (and hearts) pricked with the premier of this series:

That’s Quotable . . .

“People who avoid ALL criticism fail. It’s destructive criticism we need to avoid, not criticism in all forms”

-Timothy Ferris . . .

. . . Bio in the back of his book says this:

“serial entrepreneur and ultravagabond, has been featured in the New York Times, National Geographic Traveler, Maxim and other media. He speaks six languages, runs a multinational firm from wireless locations worldwide, and has been a world-record holder in tango, a national champion in Chinese kickboxing, and an actor on a hit television series in Hong Kong. He is thirty years old”


Push uphill . . . coast downhill

Ministry is all about seasons of LIFECHANGE . . .

For this reason there is no way you can maintain one constant pace . . .

This is becoming reality to me in my marathon training . . . Real life is a series of different types of topography and terrain

. . . nothing like this (by the way I hate training on those) . . . but more like this . . .

In training you’ll learn to follow this principle:

Push uphill . . . coast downhill

Push uphill . . . coast downhill

This means kicking tail to get to the top of the struggle . . . and then riding the momentum downhill

Bonus: the bigger the organization/movement, yes the harder it is to push it uphill, but the more steam it picks up blazing to the bottom!
