Quote of the Day
“You talk about the one you are focused on so focus on God until you have to talk about Him with others.”
Thought of the Day
Simple AND Easy
It’s simple and simple should be easy.
It’s not easy not because it’s difficult but because it’s new. To someone who’s always danced, dancing is easy. To someone who has always cooked, cooking is easy.
You get to easy when you take one step and then keep stepping until it becomes your default. What will you dare to make easy for your life?
Challenge for Intentional Actions
Make it Simple
What is something you want to make simple in your life?
What is one little bit you can do towards that simple?
The Lord says, “I will build you and you will be rebuilt.” – from Jeremiah 31:9

47 – Talk About God
Get so excited about God that you have to talk about God.
The more we focus on God the more we will want share what He’s doing and what we are learning from the investment in knowing Him more.
- First, keep the focus on the positive. Talk about the blessings. Talk about the promises. Talk about the dos.
Second, avoid pointing fingers. Sharing God is not about spotlighting what others are doing wrong, but about what God is doing right.
Third, share from a place of love. Share God’s love and share your love of others through that love. When love is the funnel, the focus is on encouragement and possibility.
Fourth, wait to be asked before you pour it out – otherwise you cause a mess instead of provided a bless.
- Finally, keep the sharing about God – not about what the pastor is or isn’t doing, not about what the youth leader is or isn’t doing, not about what the leaders are or are not doing. If you keep the focus on God – His blessings, His promises, His show up and show out moments in your life and throughout Scripture.
Invest in a relationship with God so that you get excited enough that you want to share.
