Day of Thoughts, part 2

“Romance is the deepest thing in life, romance is even deeper than reality.”
G.k. Chesterton

Thoughts from a talk on leadership:

  • Fear is a backwards motivator
  • Pure obedience comes from a love for Jesus
  • What are you trying to hide?
  • Keep your heart yielded and keep following Him.
  • When you understand the way of a leader as being a shepherd then you will be a dynamic leader.
  • A shepherd feeds his sheep everyday and only shears once a year.

Andy Stanley Series: That Hideous Thing (jealousy)

  • You think God ripped you off.  God could have given you this, God could have done that.
  • 1 Cor. 13 You can’t love until you get rid of envy
  • 1. Acknowledge this truth and take it to God. I think God owes me. 2. Confess your jealousy to the person if you need to. 3. Celebrate the people you envy and celebrate them out loud.”

Captivating: Healing the Wound

  • Now, Jesus said, don’t you think God cares just a little bit more for you than for the birds of the air? “Are you not much more valuable than they?” (Matt. 6:26).  Indeed, you are.  You, dear heart, are the crown of creation, his glorious image bearer.  And he will do everything it takes to rescue you and set your heart free.
  • He came to restore the glorious creation that you are.  And then set you free….to be yourself
  • Our journey toward healing begins when we repent of those ways, lay them down, let them go. 
  • Healing never comes against our will
  • We all still need to know and find the answers in God: Do you see me? Am I captivating? Do I have a beauty all my own? Will you heal me? Can you really heal me? Am I really worth it?
