Chase it October 16, 2007

I found this earlier today on Mark Batterson’s blog. I don’t always read these things, but today I did. Today was different. I needed to hear this today. Thanks, Mark.

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Expand your horizons. Accumulate experiences. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life. Don’t let what’s wrong with you keep you from worshiping what’s right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze a new trail. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don’t try to be who you’re not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion.

p.s. if you haven’t read this book, you need to.

    Hey Jenn
    Go girl!!! Thats what I love about having you and joel on our staff. You guys are ready to go for broke. Not afraid of risk!! Im afraid anyone in our staff afraid to risk it is pretty unhappy. Thanks for your Modeling Going for it!! As the old commercial says “You only go around once, get all the gusto you can” That is a quote from scripture I think!!
