Chase The Lion



New Book by Mark Batterson

I recently had the honor of being selected to be on the launch team for Mark Patterson’s new book “Chase the Lion.”  Today, I got a sneak peek of the first two chapters.  I can honestly say that it’s the only work that I’ve read where I wanted to post every other sentence on Facebook or Twitter.  Immediately, I was challenged to dream big, and to revive dreams I’ve set aside.  He approaches the topic from a fresh perspective that I’d never thought of before.  It is INSPIRING!

I can already tell that this book should go on everyone’s “Have To” read list.

What is your dream?

The Lion Chaser’s Manifesto

Quit living as if the purpose of life
is to arrive safely at death.
Run to the roar.
Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-given passions.
Go after a dream that is destined to fail
without divine intervention.
Stop pointing out problems. Become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past. Start creating the future. Face your fears. Fight for your dreams.
Grab opportunity by the mane and don’t let go!
Live like today is the rst day and last day of your life. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze new trails.
Live for the applause of nail-scarred hands.
Don’t let what’s wrong with you
keep you from worshiping what’s right with God. Dare to fail. Dare to be different.
Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion.

A New Kind of Resolution for 2013

In January, tradition has it that we make a bunch of resolutions that the average person keeps for up to 14 days. This year, I have a suggestion to break with tradition. Do something that will make a real and lasting change in your life for the better. I recently was introduced to a book that really changed my perspective on some difficulties I was going through. I am so impressed with the contents of this book that I am going to make it required reading for anyone I counsel. The book, “40 Days to a Joy-filled Life,” has a profound impact starting with “Day 1” if you have an open and teachable heart. Can you say instant gratification? I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to have a more joyful and peaceful life. If you want to skip the New Year hype this year, try curling up by the fire with this great book based on the principles of Philippians 4:8. Paul wrote this book while he was imprisoned and some writers believe he was waist deep in waste at the time of his writing, and yet Philippians was his most joy-filled book. Paul was an expert at getting above his circumstances and experiencing the joy and peace that are rightfully ours in Christ. God never promised us a bed of roses, but He did promise the grace, joy, and peace to get through any trial by doing it His way. You can decide to exchange good for great in 2013, by allowing Tommy Newberry to mentor you in the ways of joy. The book is made up of mini chapters followed by “Activate Drills” to assist you in implementing the principles the author has just discussed. This great book is only about $10 on Invest in yourself and those who get to live with you, become a joy carrier in 2013!
