Great words of Wisdom, thank you brother.
Great words of Wisdom, thank you brother.
I am not even a racer and this spoke volumes to me with the season I’m in. Thanks Seth for sharing!
“There’s a big difference between having glimpsed the kingdom and figuring out how to live in it.”
I love this Seth! Totally true, but it seems you give racers the tools to reenter the world around them. And you also have such inspiring words to give many others of us who have not done such a “formal” kingdom journey peace about the transition we’re in since getting that glimpse.
These were the words I needed to hear. To remind myself that my world race was real. It’s time to get back to the reality of Kingdom living!
Thank-you Seth. If I could turn my wishes into reality I would be like to be at Search Light. Will be praying for everyone and the meetings.
We inspired this wonderful article daddy.
We congratulation to you and all your Teams.
May God bless all of them?
Please make plane to visiting Pakistan in 2012 for His services and for the blessings of our people.
Excellent. Right on par with what I’m going to tell them. Here’s a preview: http://goinswriter.com/starting/
Need to print this and have my wife read it to me whenever I return. Great post Dad. Thanks!
Wow, very insightful. It definetly helps us, the family and friends, who get to welcome a racer home and through the homecoming process without ever going through it ourselves.
I liked this paragraph of yours, especially the first sentence:
“This next phase of life you’re going through is a practical season where the high, holy poetry of the soul picks up a dish rag and is confronted with messy spirituality. We’re not allowed to build booths on the Mount of Transfiguration. We have to return to a land where checkbooks need balancing and cars need oil changes.”
It struck a chord with me and reminds me that whatever the season we find ourselves in, God is still there. The “high, holy poetry of the soul” continues as we seek Him and we find Him still where we are. Even in the things that we may consider to be mundane, He is there. Seasons come and go, but He is always faithful.
Wish I could be there! Hoping for a fun, relaxing, and successful time…
To all you World Racers,
YOU CAN CHANGE THE WORLD! Don’t let the false prophets (those nay-sayers) speak into your lives. DON’T LISTEN TO THEM. You’ve experienced something that will be used in your lives to make a real difference.
Now find some place to continue your journey. Go feed the poor. Go comfort those in distress. Go and release the captives in the sex trade. YOU HAVE HOPE – GO AND GIVE IT AWAY FREELY!
“Lord, direct them, guide them, and be gentle with them as they make these decisions over the next weeks. God, please continue to break their hearts with the things that break yours…”
Bless you guys REAL GOOD!
Good stuff! I’m halfway through the race right now and I wonder what going back home will look like. These are thoughts I want to keep in mind when that time comes. Thanks for sharing.
This. “When Jesus left his disciples, they didn’t disperse. They stayed together and prayed. In the hotbed of community, revolution was born. In the atmosphere of prayer, the fires of kingdom passion were stoked.” and this “Don’t default to somebody else’s dream for your life. Go apprentice with someone who will continue to pour into you and your dream as you live in community. The world is waiting for what God wants to reveal as you continue to come fully alive.” Love it.
Literally one of the best posts I’ve read in so long. It is so hard to dig through the junk of day to day sometimes, even harder to make sense out of things that didn’t make sense at the time, but WORKED. I love this so much. Thanks for posting it!

I'm motivated to join God in his global reclamation project. He's on the move, setting his sons and daughters free from their places of captivity. And he's partnering with those of us who have been freed to go and free others.
