When you ask God for a supernatural experience, and then fully anticipate one, expect flying colors.

Unearthly, otherworldly, miraculous, SUPERnatural colors.

The key is, you must fully anticipate them.

And I did.

At the risk of appearing overly enthusiastic over my recent...

"This is never going to work," I say out loud to myself as I look into the mirror. How can I possibly feel confident delivering a speech looking like, well, me?

I can't stand the way I look. I'm even less enchanted with the way I speak. And yet, I must stand up in...

Faith isn't faith unless it's backed by something that can't be proven. Right? Faith is something that allows us to believe in things unseen. It's trust without proof.

Every day I am alive on this earth I can choose to create it, to be a force for it, to grow it exponentially.

I think we can agree that desiring attention for oneself is largely a function of youth and inexperience. Oh, there are exceptions, to be sure, but there is something about the wisdom that comes with age that dictates a reversal in spotlight thinking. 

When I was young...

How much do you push yourself out of your comfort zone? Enough to get uncomfortable? 

Enough to provide yourself new experiences? To change your world in a good way?

Do you even try to go beyond what anchors you in place? Or are you content with where you are?
