  • L. shared from Jesus + Nothing = Everything by Tullian Tchividjian
    I was realizing in a fresh way the now-power of the gospel—that the gospel doesn’t simply rescue us from the past and rescue us for the future; it also rescues us in the present from being enslaved to things like fear, insecurity, anger, self-reliance, bitterness, entitlement, and insignificance (more on all this later). Through my pain, I was being convinced all over again that the power of the gospel is just as necessary and relevant after you become a Christian as it is before.
    Note: The now-power of the Gospel. :-)
  • L. shared from NO ORDINARY MOMENTS: A Peaceful Warrior's Guide to Daily Life by Dan Millman
    Socrates had insisted, “Walking, sitting, breathing, or taking out the trash deserve as much attention as a triple somersault.” “That may be true,” I had argued, “but when I do a triple somersault, my life is on the line.” “Yes,” he replied, “but in every moment, the quality of your life is on the line. Life is a series of moments. In each, you are either awake or you are asleep—fully alive, or relatively dead.” I vowed never again to treat any moment as ordinary. As the months passed, I would ask myself, at random: In this moment, am I fully alive, or relatively dead? I...
    Note: Are you fully alive of relatively dead?
  • L. shared from 18 Minutes: Find Your Focus, Master Distraction, and Get the Right Things Done by Peter Bregman
    I have a friend, a rabbi named Hayyim Angel, who carries reading material with him whenever he goes to a meeting. Why? “Because,” he told me, “according to the Talmud [the Jewish book of law], if someone comes late to a meeting they are committing the sin of stealing—stealing the time of the person who had to wait for them. And it’s the worst kind of stealing because what was taken can never be returned. I don’t want to cause anyone to sin. So I always make sure, if I have to wait for someone, they’re never in a position of stealing my time.”
    Note: What are you stealing from others?
  • L. shared from Jesus Calling: Devotional Journal by Sarah Young
    It is possible to enjoy Me and glorify Me in the midst of adverse circumstances. In fact, My Light shines most brightly through believers who trust Me in the dark. That kind of trust is supernatural: a production of My indwelling Spirit. When things seem all wrong, trust Me anyway. I am much less interested in right circumstances than in right responses to whatever comes your way.
    Note: I really needed to read this today!
