CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:

Shoutout to a HIM doing HIM stuff — Swanson.

It can be easy to get lost in all that’s going on in the world and get caught up, frustrated, upset, agitated, etc etc. It happens to me wayyyyy more than I’d like to admit. When I do get lost in all that, it can prevent me from using correct discipline, judgement, and discernment about what I say and do, and especially what I post for people to see. Like Hebrews 12:1 says below – we’re surrounded by a great cloud of witnesses.

So last week I re-posted something on my social media (Facebook/Instagram) from an account I follow that was satirical and meant to be a funny yet sad reality check of what’s really going on in the country at the hands of certain government officials. While it was a view point of truth, my re-posting of it lacked a few things:

    • Discernment
    • Judgement
    • Wisdom
    • Responsibility

And so as High Impact Men are expected to do – I was called out and called higher by Swanson. I would expect nothing less from a true HIM. And it wasn’t shaming or negative – it was verbatim “You’re better than this.”

Dang.

A fellow HIM knows I’m better than this reaffirmed that. Swanson stepped up into his rightful position of leadership as a high impact man and held me accountable and called me higher. That’s HIM stuff. And I had to check my own pride and ego at the door (not always easy).

I knew Swanson was right. Why? Because time and time again he’s proven to be a trustworthy HIM of wisdom. While that may have been a little tough for me to hear and recognize, I knew that he was right and that he was calling me higher. I trust Swanson. He was helping remind me of who I truly was – why? Because High Impact Men hold High Impact Men accountable. I needed to hear that.

We all need a Swanson in our lives – someone who’s going to keep us accountable, call us higher, and remind us of who we are.

CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” – Romans 12:1-2

Don’t conform to the fear and despair in the world around us. Be true HIMs in our families and communities by renewing our mind and being transformed. Be the hope and the light and the strength the world needs.

COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA
CIRCLE OF TRUST/BOM:
Talked about how in Jeremiah 29 God tells the Israelites, before being taken into slavery by the Babylonians, to build houses, plant gardens, eat of their fruit, get married, and pray on behalf of the city you’re being taken to. So essentially, instead of sitting around and waiting for liberation, God told His people to live well in captivity while also looking forward to freedom. With this quarantine I’ve done the exact opposite. I’ve sat around and moped and waited until things get better rather than tried to make the most of the season the Lord has us in. So my encouragement for us this morning was, even though we’re transitioning back to normal slowly, to be thinking of how we can live well right now in quarantine rather than sit around and just wait for things to be better

THE SCENE: Started out great in the 50’s but ended with massive down pour.
