The distance between you and your destination can be set to zero only by your courage to act and by your determination to sustain this action till the end!
The past will only catch you, if you ran from it to begin with.
Anyone who crawls up from the gutter and makes something of themselves, despite the odds and despite others who tried to keep them down, must always be very proud of their achievements. They must never forget the struggles they went through, because they are a living example to those who wander in darkness, a staunch reminder that light is within reach if they can find the strength and determination to keep going.
Those who find courage to pursue their dreams, manifest gladness of their souls.
A step towards what you fear is a mile towards mastering it.
Never give up.
Never give up on your hopes.
Never give up on your dreams.
Never give up on your visions.
Never despair if you have to start at the bottom; not even the sun rises from the top.
Missional leaders not only feel the burden of God’s mission but they also act on the burden and act upon it sacrificially. Leading a missional church is not for the faint of heart. It takes courage to push yourself beyond your comfort zone and to lead the church beyond it personal limits. Brokenness, inner turmoil and sacrifice will always be part of the missional leader’s life.
Our daily gratitude shapes our everyday attitude.
When I put down Lance Armstrong’s book, I understood something profoundly. Edie, if you can move, you’re not sick. I decided right then and there that no matter what cancer did to me I would continue to move. Movement was what the physical body was designed to do; it was how it coped and functioned. Movement was vitality. It was life.
I would move. Always. No matter what. Until my last breath, I would move.
