Dream unDeterred

I watched a young woman describe her passion project to a receptive audience. It was clear she would not allow recent obstacles prevent her from producing her product or deter her from her dream. Her determination was inspiring.

Ain’t gonna let nobody turn me around
Turn me around, turn me around
Ain’t gonna let nobody turn me around
Keep on a-walkin’, keep on a-talkin’
Gonna build a brand new world.” ~ Joan C. Baez

Inhale Dream, Exhale Discouragement…
Inhale Determination, Exhale Derailment…
Inhale Un-Deterred, Exhale Diversion…
Just Breathe…

Compelled to Purpose

Our purpose is sometimes revealed in unexpected, sometimes sad, even violent ways … like when we experience something personally or something happens to someone close to us and we feel compelled to act.

Candy Lightner founded Mothers Against Drunk Driving after a drunk driver with a history of arrests for intoxication, hit and killed her daughter.

Whose life will be saved by the protection you put into place while serving your purpose?

The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Inhale Purpose, Exhale Despair…
Inhale Focus, Exhale Discouragement…
Inhale Action, Exhale Distraction…

Confidence

I’m a part of a mentoring program that did a session on courage. It was a reminder that God commands us to be courageous and gives us the reason why: God! Tweet this now!

So it led me to muse…when we think we are acting courageously, are we really being courageous or obedient? Are we being courageous or faithful? Is courage, obedience and faith all the same reaction based on our confidence in who God is?

“…because they all saw him and were terrified. Immediately he spoke to them and said, “Take courage! It is I. Donʼt be afraid.” Mark 6:50 NIV

Inhale Courage, Exhale Discouragement…
Inhale Obedience, Exhale Disobedience…
Inhale Confidence, Exhale Disbelief…
