Remembering the Why

(while embracing the Grind) This time of the year does not always lend itself to closing deals, and completing world-class objectives, it is nonetheless an important time of the year.  Last time we talked about becoming better at the basics that most everyone else.  Perhaps you identified a few things that you would willfully work on in changing your habits so that the better you would become more evident. I am discovering that too many of us have forgotten was it means to embrace the mundane things of life.  We watch too many movies, read too many books, and play...

Back to the Basics Again

At age 45, Vince Lombardi became a head football coach in the NFL for the first time in his life. It was 1959, and he had the challenging task of leading the Green Bay Packers, a team that had only won two games the previous season. He clearly had his work cut out for him. But Lombardi wasn’t going to let last year’s record shape his expectations. This was a new season, after all—just as 2018 can be a new season for each of us today! When the discouraged group of players gathered for their first preseason meeting, I’m sure they wondered how their...

The Potential and Possibilities of 2018

This past week my wife needed to use my truck for the day and she kindly left me the keys to her car so that I would still be mobile.  It was the first time I had driven her car which we just bought in November and I have to tell you I was a little excited to get to drive the car with all of its fancy thrills.  As I drove along the road I immediately noticed that the rearview mirrors would blink and chirp with warnings anytime something came into my blind spots.  It was a subtle reminder...

The last days of the journey.

2017 was defined in many different ways by every person. It is almost now nothing but memories, and this weekend in a wonderful time to reflect on the accomplishments, failures, victories, defeats, delights and disasters. It’s completely right and reasonable to spend some time reflecting. As you look back at the year now (almost completely) passed, spend some time: Looking thoughtfully at your journal entries for the past year. (If you were not successful in journaling, just move on to the next assignment. Look back at the lessons you learned for your devotional life and scripture reading. If you mark...

The Greatest Word of All

One of the greatest words in universe is grace. It’s often overused and misused, but it is most often misunderstood. Throughout this year we have been talking about developing a G3 lifestyle – Grateful, Generous, and Gracious. I have been amazed and impressed at what I have seen developing in so many of you. You have become far more grateful. Many of you are keeping regular Gratitude Journals where, several days each week, you make somewhat meaningful entries. Remember gratitude is a state of the mind and the heart. It is far more than appreciation for something you have received,...

Homeward Bound 

Another ministry project is now a memory.  After meeting with our entire team this morning we left the field for Accra.  The drive was without incident and we have settled into our hotel in the Capital city for a night of rest before boarding our flight home early tomorrow morning.   It seems like only yesterday that we were leaving for Ghana. During our days here we were able to share the Gospel with over 40,000 individuals in 227 venues where nearly 25,000 indicated decisions for Christ. We continue to pray for the leaders, churches, and pastors here who are tasked with the responsibility of walking alongside these new...
