What are you waiting for?
(Here's help to get unstuck!)


Right now you may have a dream and it seems unattainable.The fulfillment of your desire feels like a huge mountain that is in your way. Achieving it seems so big, you don't even know where to start on the majority of days when you wake up.

Permission to speak into your life today?

Thank you.

Yesterday I wrote a post about the danger of assuming.  People waste a ton of time assuming something is going to happen that may never will. Just because you're thinking about something 90% of the day doesn't mean anyone else is.


Something happens when you take a step.

Even when you just move an inch, or tackle one small 15 minute item, you have taken a step forward. A friend of mine who is a fitness coach says that even if you do just a 30 minute walk you're still beating everyone who's laying on the couch! 

I beg you...take a step. Whether it be small, or even a little crazy...do it.

There are days that I've woke up and said to myself, "Today, I'm going to submit an article to the Huffington Post!" I spontaneously thought up a good story idea, banged out the query on my computer and sent it off.

And there, I did it.

Was it accepted? No. Not yet. Emphasis on the word yet.

But I took a step. And even when the answer's no, steps are still steps leading you ever onward in your pursuit.

The Huffington Post may not have accepted my proposal but a smaller paper did notice me and accepted. And many others have purchased my work. And the most important thing -- I'm getting better all the time in the process.

You will too, at whatever you're called to do. Take a step. Do something. Don't believe the idiots that say no one cares what you have to say or what is in your heart to do. Everyone doesn't care, but somebody does care, I guarantee it.

So often we get stuck because we think certain somebodies are more important than other somebodies. Let God sort out the people. Just get moving, my friend!

You are a life jacket to somebody who's drowning. But if they don't even know you're there, how can you help them?

Your talent, your passion is needed. Others will listen, they will respond. Maybe not the people you thought would, or dreamed of, but let that go. Somebody will respond, I promise you. Let go of your expectations as to who should notice you. Let God form your tribe.

 They're waiting, but you have to get out there. Take a step.

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
