It’s All About Taking Action

So for about the past month I could feel God urging me to read the Book of Nehemiah.

It was like I was seeing it mentioned all over the place.  But I just never “got around to reading it.”  Then the other day I felt down and kept saying I need to do something extraordinary with my life.  You know, something to help change the world.

And then it hit me like a ton of bricks… the urge to read Nehemiah.  Wow, just wow.

Here’s a short background on the Book of Nehemiah:  Mehemiah was feeling grief over the ruins of the walls of Jerusalem, so he decided to take action and left his home and job to do an “impossible mission” which was to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.

So here’s this common, ordinary man who felt grief over where his fathers were buried, constantly reached out to God, and TOOK ACTION.

That’s the key right there… he TOOK ACTION and constantly reached out to God from beginning to end.  God doesn’t want us waiting around for him, he wants us to pray to him and then go take action!

So go read God’s Word, Pray, and put his Word into Action AND be a Light in the World!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year 2017!

Remember the past is the past.  The only thing we can do is move forward toward the ultimate prize…

“Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” -Philippians 3:13-14

And as you walk through the new year…

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” -Joshua 1:9

Enjoy the adventure God has laid ahead of you.

Be a light in the world!
