I recently asked my 5yo “What’s your favorite Bible story we’ve read recently?”

”Day one.”

”What’d you like about that?”

”Well, it was dark and then God said let there be light and there was & that’s pretty amazing.”

This was a good reminder to me that amazing encounters and experiences are all around, I just don’t always pay attention.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I intentionally combined exercises today in a fashion to make the HIMs think. So much of what we do is subconscious and it is rare that a man takes time throughout the day, week or even month to really think. A study conducted on thinking found that 95% of people don’t take time to think, 3% think they take time to think, but in reality only 2% take time that they set aside daily to creatively think. We were made in the image of the Great Creator and so my challenge to the HIMs is to take time to seek what God would have them think about and become what He has called them to be as they creatively think about their future. I quoted “ALL THAT a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts… A man’s weakness and strength, purity and impurity, are his own, and not another man’s; they are brought about by himself, and not by another; and they can only be altered by himself, never by another. His condition is also his own, and not another man’s. His suffering and his happiness are evolved from within. As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.” (James Allen) The conclusion is that every man is the master of their own mind and therefore their results. Take time to think and see what a difference it will make.

2 FNGs: Yo-yo & Road Trip

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

We’re living history right now; our kids or grandkids will read about 2020 in their history books. They’re going to ask you what it was like to be alive in 2020? And you’ll tell them. Then they’re going to ask, “what did you do”?

And so the question I’m wrestling with, that I think we should all be wrestling with is how do we want to be able to answer that question? I want to be able to tell them I did more than eat a lot of frozen pizza, like some tweets, and go to bed early. I think we should all aspire to more.

MOLESKIN:
Great effort today & great to have two FNGs.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
I am mad. I am mad at racism and the evil that has been so blatantly shown to us last week. I hate that another man feels fear and running in his neighborhood. I hate that one man killed another man. He took the life of another image bearer of God. I hate racism and there’s no place in the church or in our society for it. Pray for our leaders and pray for those officers who are now standing in those lines to protect and serve. Pray for the peaceful protests that true change will happen. Pray that Moore peaceful protests that happened in Nashville becomes common.
