"I've come that you might have life and have it to the full." These are the word of Jesus. I can really relate. I haven't always been able to...some days I still struggle...other days life throws me a curve...another day there will be suffering...such is life...at the same time my life is full. I'm not sure that I would call yesterday typical, but here's what it looked like for me...
It started at 6:00 am with a prayer time at MLC for National Day of Prayer. It was good. A great reminder to pray more for our country.
After prayer I got to hang out with Todd Nichols our worship pastor. Todd is awesome and I've spent very little time with him since he joined our team six months ago...it was a good time to catch up, check in, and connect. Thanks Todd for your time.
Later morning I met with our IT guy and worked on an outsource contract for all of our computer and communication needs.
Had a conference call with Chip Riggs from Hope Baptist in Las Vegas. We are working on our partnership in the middle east where we will be training 100 pastors and 30 young leaders in December.
Spent the balance of the morning working on lots of different administrative stuff.
MY wife called about noon and wanted to go to Bon Jovi Concert...not my thing...but my wife is...We picked up a couple of really cheap tickets in the nose bleed section.
Drove down to Catalyst headquarters for a podcast with Brad Lomenick. We talked a lot about my life, ministry and new book...Breaking the Discipleship Code.
Did all this on my motorcycle which is like a vacation every time I get on it.
Went home and took a 15 minute nap...I'm not sure if it was a power nap or not.
Had a second prayer time at 6:00 pm for National Day of Prayer.
Went to Bon Jova concert and got back home by Midnight.
Heard from a old friend David Langford via e-mail. Second reconnect from my high school days in two days. Really cool.
Did I say anything about a full life...Today is my day off so I am going to ride my bike with a friend and tonight Tami and I will catch a movie, hang out at Barnes and Nobel's, and have some dinner...wonder who I will hear from or connect with today?
Have a great day and don't forget to live.
