A LION CHASERS MANIFESTO. Pastor Keith Jones

It's a beautiful SON Morning....
"THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE, LET US REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT"

Over the past several weeks Pastor Keith has been doing a teaching on CHASING LIONS....It has been an inspiring teaching and last night was the conclusion....He gave us a hand out at the end entitled: A LION CHASERS MANIFESTO" It really ministered to me....I want to share it with you today and I hope it will also minister to you.....

A LION CHASERS MANIFESTO

Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Grab life by the mane. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. 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. Consider the lilies. Enjoy the journey. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and the 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 a new trail. Criticize by creating. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don't try to be who you're not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

~CHASE THE LION ~

For myself, this is like an everyday LIVING CREED. These things are not things that are impossible to accomplish. Yes, some of these things will be difficult to do, but just remember, was it EASY for JESUS to be up on that CROSS with nail-pierced hands and dying for OUR SINS? NO!!! but, HE did it because HE LOVES us and wants his children to be FREE....We as HIS children, can at least try to live by these words....

RUN THAT RACE.....DON'T LOOK BACK.....JUST KEEP MOVING FORWARD...TAKE RISKS....DON'T BE AFRAID, YOUR FATHER IS RIGHT THERE WITH YOU....

Have a wonderful and beautiful day.....

In Gods Love,
Cindy
