Canada Reflections

Well, I’m back in America and feeling the heat.  Here’s some reflections from the past week of “going dark”.

  • I need to constantly evaluate my worldly intake.  Even as I sit here at my desk checking my e-mails (145 of them), RSS feeds (175 of them), and other social networking sites (aka Facebook), I have to wonder; Is it worth it?
  • People need to ask questions about topics they know little about.  Few people do this which leads to misconceptions and arrivals at “truth” that are often false or incorrect.  I asked a lot of questions to the guys in Canada and gain a lot of insightful information when I kept my heart open.
  • We can never lose the heart for the lost.  People are dying all around us and going to hell.  We can’t forget the call to reach them.
  • With that said, in the quest to reach the lost, we can’t forget about how many Christians need aid also.
  • I might not be anything until I lose everything.
  • God is still working on breaking me.  It’s a painful process but extremely vital for growth.  I have to keep remembering that although the pain only lasts for moments, the return is promising (even if it never comes in this life).
  • Brokenness is constantly learning that my way might not always be right.
  • I need to make time to let God speak to me more.  I fear that this process is becoming “work related” and not “spiritually related”.
  • Serving God means serving others.  Who am I not serving right now and how can I serve them more?
  • When the Spirit speaks, I must act.  Hesitation only leads to frustration.
  • God loves me.

Canada was beautiful and loaded with brush strokes of God’s glory.  I sat in constant amazement at His divine creation.

But wait, there’s more!

Some book recommendations for my friends that I read this past week while I was away…

  1. Christian brothers and sisters: Worldliness: Resisting the Seduction of a Fallen World by C. J. Mahaney
  2. Leadership Gurus: Leadership as an Identity: The Four Traits of Those Who Wield Lasting Influence by Crawford Loritts
  3. Pastors: Me to We: A Pastor’s Discovery of the Power of Partnership by Alan Nelson

All of these are great reads.  I highlighted the Alan Nelson book.  Check that one out as soon as you can!

To God be the Glory.
