Legacy

On the morning of April 20, 1999 two dark and disturbed young men ended the lives of 12 students and one teacher. The Columbine High School massacre will be etched in our minds and hearts forever.
Rachel Joy Scott was the first child killed that day. Rachel was a unique girl. She didn’t care about popularity, and reached out to other students: kids who were new, kids getting picked on and special needs students. Her ongoing life and legacy is shown through Rachel’s Challenge, the largest, most impactful in-school program in the world which creates safer, more connected schools.
Rest In Peace, Rachel. You did not die in vain…

Tall Tales

All of us have heard fishing stories before, and the stories get better every time the person tells it.

But what about the stories we tell ourselves? We are lying to ourselves when we tell ourselves we aren’t good enough, that we shouldn’t try anything new because we will fail. The truth is, God created us. We are good enough. He wants us to succeed.

God didn’t create us and then forget about us. Trust Him…

Planted Seeds

When God plants a dream in your heart, it is there for a purpose. The dream, no matter how outrageous it seems, is there for a greater calling. We view the world through limited human vision. We need to see it through God’s eyes. He doesn’t see limitations because God has unlimited power.

See differently. Follow His lead…

Risky Business

We take risks every single day. For example, when we drive our car, we assume the risk that the other drivers will obey the law. If we have an accident, it doesn’t stop us from driving again.

God created each of us for a unique purpose. If we choose to not follow what’s been placed on our heart, we live an unfulfilled life full of frustrations.

Take a chance. Expect setbacks. Pursue your purpose with everything you have in you. You will succeed if you don’t quit, because God doesn’t lose. Ever…

Limitations

Other people like to set limitations on your life. The negative talk could come from a “friend,” a family member, or even your spouse! Do not allow their fear of living to stop you from pursuing your dreams.

God alone has authority over your life. He decides what limitations we might have, not other people…

Opposition

Albert Einstein once wrote, “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”

Plenty of people stand ready to throw cold water on your dreams. It’s your life. You can choose to listen to the naysayers or to your inner voice, the voice that encourages you to pursue your destiny. Expect opposition, but don’t give in.

The Rebel in Us

Surrender is a word we do not like to consider. We like to believe we are in control.

Proverbs 16:9 tells us, “In their hearts, humans plan their course, but the Lord directs their steps.” God will have His way, no matter what we want. And He’s on our side, not out to get us. Trust Him.

We are naturally rebellious. When we align ourselves with the Spirit, and surrender our will, we find meaning and fulfillment…
