Convenience Makes No Sense

I have been doing a lot of forward thinking, goal-setting and praying this month… yes, praying. And it was in the place of prayer that I found myself ‘praying out loud’ the words:

Convenience Makes No Sense!

I understood perfectly what God was saying to me.

What Are You REALLY Afraid Of?

We want to make a difference in our world. We want to create influence around us. We want to live the life that matters. We want to be used by God. We want to touch lives in positive ways.

But we don’t want to be wrecked. We run away from inconvenience. We avoid pain. We refuse to embrace challenges.

But I have one question for you:

What are you REALLY afraid of?

Purpose + Indifference = Doesn’t Work!

Living the life that matters this year is not compatible with indifference. It doesn’t work that way. My wife and I started the year making a key decision that mean we leave ourselves vulnerable in a sense. But we feel so much peace like never before. We chose inconvenience over convenience in order to align ourselves with God’s purpose and best.

Those who seek and desire to accomplish great things choose to be wrecked and broken, rather than fold their arms and watch life happen to them.

Convenience makes no sense when you are on your way to greatness. Tweet this.

Convenience makes no sense when you want to live purposefully. You should tweet this.

Press In For More, Go Over And Beyond

Do I need to remind you again that so much is at stake in your life this year? I told my cell group folks to ready themselves for an awesome wave of God’s move in their lives. But that wasn’t everything I told them. I also challenged them to become discontent with their situation and press into God for more.

Are you pressing in for more? Are you seeking to go over and beyond? Or are you just comfortable? Convenience makes no sense anymore.

In which area of your life do you need to leap out of ‘comfortable’ into radical purposeful living?
