Dare to Be Different

Have courage — moral courage,
the courage of one’s convictions,
the courage to see things through.
The World is in a constant conspiracy against the brave.
It’s the age-old struggle — the roar of the crowd on one side & the voice of your conscience on the other.

Dare to Dream Big

“…No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him” – I Corinthians 2:9

What are the dreams and desires that you have for your future? Maybe you had some big dreams when you were younger, but things didn’t go the way you planned and so you put them aside and settled for status quo. We’ve all had disappointments, but we have to keep moving forward. Today is a new day, and we serve a God who makes all things new.

Let me challenge you to have a big dream for your life. I always say, when one dream dies, dream another dream. Don’t just settle for mediocrity, we serve a God who is above and beyond anything we can think of. There’s nothing you can dream of that God can’t do. Ask Him to bring you the right people, the right opportunities, and the right resources. As you follow His leading in your heart, I believe you’ll move forward and see every dream and desire come to pass in Jesus’ name!

Dare to Go the Second Mile

We often hear the phrase “going the Second Mile” in our modern conversation, but it actually has its roots in first century Palestine.

During Bible times, the Romans had conquered much of the known world and ruled with an iron hand. A Roman soldier could compel a subject of one of the conquered lands to carry his backpack, or “load,” for him one mile, but only one mile. When Jesus spoke to His followers in the Sermon on the Mount, He said to them…
“If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles” (Matthew 5:41 NIV). The choice to go the second mile is the key that unlocks the secret of joy in difficult circumstances. It has the power to transform a tiresome, menial walk into a joyful act of giving; to infuse a contentious relationship with a new spirit of kindness and generosity; and to change an individual’s self-perception from that of a victim to a victor.

The Second Mile represents a much higher law – the law of kindness, generosity and love
