Now That I’m Old(er)

I love having the opportunity to speak to young(er) people. Especially now that I’m old(er), it gives me a chance to allow some of my hindsight to become someone else’s foresight. (That’s a fancy way of saying: I don’t want others to make the same mistakes I made!)

We’ve got a great group that meets at Calvary Assembly of God on Thursday evenings, called Unite. In addition to my short teaching time, there is also an open mic for local musicians (or poets, artists, comedians, etc.), a coffee bar, games, and lots of fun. If you are anywhere near Cedar Springs, come on out on Thursdays at 6:30pm.

Thursdays With Oswald—Be Yourself

This is a weekly series with things I’m reading and pondering from Oswald Chambers. You can read the original seed thought here, or type “Thursdays With Oswald” in the search box to read more entries.

Be Yourself

       God’s main concern is that we are more interested in Him than in work for Him. Once you are rooted and grounded in Christ the greatest thing you can do is to be. Don’t try to be useful; be yourself and God will use you to further His ends.

From Facing Reality

God doesn’t need you to try to be anything else than the you He created you to be.

You are a one-of-a-kind … unique … perfect just as He made you.

The greatest joy you will ever know is being yourself. But you can only be fully you when you find yourself in Christ. His life in you makes you you.

(And, by the way, we are exploring this idea further over the next couple of weeks in a series of messages called Living In The Zone.” If you are in the Cedar Springs area, I’d love to have you join us!)
