My husband keeps this posted on his mirror in the bathroom and it struck me today, so I thought I’d share it with you! We’ve been traveling through some ministry valleys lately and it just really helped me to remember just exactly the PATH that I am on…
This is the Manifesto inspired by Mark Batterson’s book, In a Pit with a Lion On a Snowy Day: How to Survive and Thrive when Opportunity Roars
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 UNLESS GOD INTERVENES.
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 WORSHIPPING WHAT’S RIGHT WITH GOD.
BURN SINFUL BRIDGES. BLAZE NEW TRAILS. CRITICIZE BY CREATING.
WORRY LESS ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE THINK AND MORE ABOUT WHAT GOD THINKS.
DON’T TRY TO BE WHO YOU’RE NOT.
LAUGH AT YOURSELF.
QUIT HOLDING OUT.
QUIT HOLDING BACK.
QUIT RUNNING AWAY.
CHASE THE LION.
