No More Excuses


I recently was a leader at a conference where Axis Ministries came and spoke.  During their presentation, they showed this video.  Before you read further, take a few minutes to watch it.


The conference theme was all about turning apathy into action, and after watching this video, I asked myself some hard questions about that theme.  I challenge you to ask them to yourself as well.

-Am I making excuses that are stopping me from living my life to the fullest potential that God has for me?

-What are my most frequent excuses? Is there any truth to any of them?

Summer is a wonderful time to reflect and relax, but it is quickly coming to a close. So before this next school year starts, I have a few more questions for you.

-Where is your relationship with God at right now? What excuses are getting in the way of that relationship growing?

-Has summer been a time of putting your faith on hold or are you putting it into action?

-What steps can you take to grow deeper in your faith?

Take some time right now, wherever you are to reconnect with the God of the Universe who created you. Who loves you with an everlasting love. Who desires to have an intimate relationship with you. Who lets you call Him Dad.

The Lord your God is with you; he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you; he will quiet you with his love; he will rejoice over you with singing. 

Zephaniah 3:17
