I came across a recent resource that briefly discussed prioritizing the new year with what I want to be thankful for by the end of it.
I never really thought about this before. Entering the gates of 2017 by creating milestones as to what I want to be thankful for by the end of the year sounded like a great idea.
For many years, I’ve made a choice to follow a Bible reading plan. I do this as an intentional and regular starting point to keep me in the Word on a daily basis. I do this reading digitally. I tried paper, but it doesn’t work out for me as well as having my Bible reading on all my devices, providing me greater flexibility throughout the day if need be.
I would use the Bible App (a part of You Version family) as my number-one go-to app but not this year.
Our very first worship project, “You Alone,” from Convergence Worship is out and available on Bandcamp and iTunes.
“You Alone” is a three song EP by Jordan Simas, Ryan Swihart, and Anthony Pereira, all part of our Convergence House of Prayer tribe.
While recently away, I spent time talking with the Lord about priorities, namely, defining the top five percent of my life that I, and only I, can do.
Much of what I’m sharing with you is a result of my recent study from Wayne Cordeiro’s book, “Leading on Empty.” I would urge you to pick up the book. You can see my review here.
Lately, the Lord has me reading A LOT of books and here are five of them I want to highlight. We’ve passed a few of these books among our Staff and have had great discussions as staff member contributes to what they are learning.
Leaders are readers, and we need to be consistently growing. So if you’re not reading, I strongly urge you to do so.
Over the last year, the Lord has really been shining His revelatory light over Matt 16:13-19. Here, we read of Peter’s great confession that Jesus is the Christ (Messiah, Anointed One).
The scriptures tell us that Jesus makes his way furthest north in the region of Caesarea Philippi, and then, he takes a two-day walk with His disciples to the Gates of Hades (Hell).
