Thanks Seth for the reminder to aim high and far! I am praying that God reveals to me a dream that is too big for me to accomplish alone.
Thanks for the reminder that we all need to soar above the fray……and when we fly there the Father meets us and points us towards the vistas uniquely framed for each one of us.
Dear Daddy Seth,
I am much blessed by your article.
May God bless You.
Really appreciated the bit towards the end about everyone needing a vision. Your vision of discipleship is definitely Biblical: the Great Commission!
America seems to be one of the few places so prosperous many of us have abundant time not being used on survival. This opens up many options for us to be champions for the untold millions who are waiting to see Jesus in the form of someone who truly cares.
The idea of getting a big-picture perspective reminded me of yesterday:
Last night – in the chilly air around a bonfire – a Christian man gave us young whipper-snappers a challenging message. He encouraged us to be always living our lives as those who have Hope: the hope of a meaningful eternity with the Lord. He reminded that for us, our Hope is not in the creation but rather in the Creator. We shouldn’t grieve like “the rest of men, who have no hope.” (1 Th 4:13)
We were challenged to always put all our “light and momentary afflictions” into an eternal perspective, to keep the big picture in mind and be always ready to share with others the “reason for the Hope” we have. (1 Pe 3:15)
Seth….you are a amazing man of God and I love reading your blogs!
I will be climbing to higher hights too return to America in less than 2 days. I will bring the dream thats been laid on my heart and would be more than happy to come and share it with you.
Where there is no wise guidance, the nation falls, but in the multitude of counselors there is victory.
Wow this is a really good reminder! Thank you! A vision to always put things in perspective.
You’re welcome, Carmen.
thanks for continuing to challange me !!
