Chase the lion

I am full of zip-a-dee-doo-dah today.

I think it was stepping into fresh snow at 6.15 this morning and then having breakfast with friends.

I read this on Mark Batterson's blog and it was all very positive and uplifting so I share it with you all. It comes from his book called 'In a pit with a lion on a snowy day' which all seemed very joined up:)

"Quit living as if the purpose of life is to arrive safely at death. Set God-sized goals. Pursue God-ordained passions. Go after a dream that is destined to fail without divine intervention. Keep asking questions. Keep making mistakes. Keep seeking God. Stop pointing out problems and become part of the solution. Stop repeating the past and start creating the future. Stop playing it safe and start taking risks. Accumulate experiences. Consider the lilies. Criticize by creating. Find every excuse you can to celebrate everything you can. Live like today is the first day and last day of your life. Don't let what's wrong with you keep you from worshiping what's right with God. Burn sinful bridges. Blaze new trails. Worry less about what people think and more about what God thinks. Don't try to be who you're not. Be yourself. Laugh at yourself. Quit holding out. Quit holding back. Quit running away.

Chase the lion."

Still loving this song
