Chase the Lion!

Chase the Lion. Grab life by the mane...
Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death.
Set God sized goals. Pursue God ordained passions.
Grab life by the mane.

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 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 mroe about what God thinks.
Don't try to be who you are not. Be yourself.

Laugh at yourself.
Quit holding out.
Quit holding back.
Quit running away.

Chase the Lion...

Read this today and it really speaks to where I am at. I am here in Brazil by faith. I am chasing the dreams He has placed in my heart. I am walking in obedience, taking a RISK - I don't want to hold back but fulfill all that God wants through my life...

Hope you are encouraged by this challenge as I was to CHASE the LION. To passionately chase after the Heart of God and become who God has uniquely created and destined you to be.

  1. Laura,

    Is this a quote from the book I told you about over Christmas. It looks like it! I'm glad you're chasing your lions and I can't wait to see what God does in your life next. I was so glad to hear that you are safely back in Belo and that God used your time away as a refreshing from Him!
