I Realized I Couldn’t Do It

I realized I couldn't do it.

 

If you know me at all, what I'm about to say won't come as a big surprise.

 

For me, strangely, it was.

 

Here's what happened…

 

You probably know I've been in ministry for nearly 25  years now. I love Jesus. I love talking about Jesus. I love bringing people into a deeper relationship with Him.

 

I also believe in being accessible and using language to meet people where they're at. I used to put on what were essentially ‘covert revival services'. People were enjoying multi-arts shows while also encountering God and getting prayer and healing.

 

Recently my focus has been changing as I've been getting greater clarity on my calling. I've realized I've been called to mobilize CreativeWorldChangers to find and pursue their calling. My dream is to see 10 million people being who they were born to be and changing the world in their own unique way. The world is missing out if they don't!

 

The question for me has been how to go about it.

 

There was never a question of my personal relationship with God and my need to work 100% with Him.

 

But I know many amazing Christians who are helping people in amazing ways without talking about God all the time.

 

Was that what I was called to do?

 

So I tried…

 

And I failed.

 

It was like those three days in college where I tried to be an atheist. I was majoring in religion and minoring in Philosophy at a Liberal Arts College. Finally, one day I got tired of arguing about the validity of God. I was mad at the world and mad at Him. So I decided to be an atheist.

 

The problem was I kept praying! I was a terrible atheist.

 

It was the same thing here.

 

The truth is I can't not talk about God. It's who I am and what I'm wired to do. So I've just decided to go with it.

 

So, for example, with my upcoming ‘Launch Your Callingcourse, I've decided to use my uniqueness and make it part of what I'm doing. I'm going to bring spiritual foundations with practical tools to help people start to do what they were born to do.

 

It's not a ministry. It's a strange kind of business. I don't know how it's going to work in the long term. But I never really did fit the boxes very well anyway. And that's okay.

 

It's okay for you too. You don't have to fit the boxes either!

 

In fact, it's more than okay.

 

It's necessary and celebrated! (by me and by all of Heaven)

 

The world needs what you have to offer. Only you can do what you do in the way you do it. So please go do it. Please go be you. If you don't, we're missing out. Because in case no one's told you today… you're amazing (because God made you that way)!

 

I am a CreativeWorldChanger. You are too!
