Do Something

I am reading Erwin McManus‘ book, ‘Chasing Daylight’, right now.

The person who lent it to me warned me that it was life changing.  I can already see why. I think I will be taking a book of notes throughout it!

Here are my favorite quotes so far.

“The most important moments rarely come at a convenient time.”

“The ironic part is that our schedules get packed with the mundane and ordinary, and we become irritated with God when He interrupts us with the miraculous and extraordinary.”

“Have you considered that God’s greatest gift to you is that He calls you to be a pioneer, explorer and even creator? There are things God does for you and things that God waits for you to do.”

“You cannot follow God in neutral. God has created you to do something!”

“What God makes clear is that when we’re committed to seizing his divine moments, He’ll make sure He gets us to the right place at the right time. What God can do through a person who’s willing to act is limitless.”

I think something amazing happens when we say yes to God.

We are no longer willing to give excuses anymore.

We realize that He wants us to do something.

Do we have it all figured out before we start? Rarely.

But the one thing I consistently know is: He wants us to DO SOMETHING!

Have you experienced this in your life? I’d love to hear what you said yes to and what you are doing to take the next steps to start. I will be posting more on this topic in the weeks to come.
