Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” – Mark 6:31
Most of us have read this verse, but many of us live in disobedience to it. Being busy or weary for God is not a badge of honor. It is closer to a badge of dishonor.
God is teaching… The “Remain Calm” Lesson
It seems that God is providing opportunities for me to learn how to remain calm in the midst of IRS notifications, sharing the road with drivers who apparently failed driver’s education, and attempting to fly standby on oversold American Airline flights.
Solomon gave us great wisdom in Proverbs 3:5 when he wrote
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
Chapter two in the second Radical Character book is entitled Radical Calm, so I should have this topic fully applied to my life. Right? I am still working on it. It is hard for me to remember not to react in fear or frustration when things occur that I don’t like. Fortunately, God continues to whisper to me, “Trust Me. I’ve got this.” It is easy to remain calm when I am not threatened by something or when things are “going my way.” The key is to remain calm in situations where the natural response is fear, anxiety, or worry. That is a powerful sermon, and the world is watching us closely.
Legacy Gathering in Indianapolis
This month Intentional Impact Ministries will host our fourth Legacy Gathering. It is a gathering of the Christian leaders that I coach in the Legacy ministry.
They all minister somewhere
in the US. Last year each Legacy guy brought his wife. Wives are also attending this year. The picture on the left was taken at the Legacy Gathering in 2017.
The North American Christian Convention
Later this month, Intentional Impact Ministries will have an exhibit booth at the North American Christian Convention in Indianapolis. It is always a great time of reconnecting with friends who minister in a variety places around the globe.
Our exhibit booth number is 541. If you plan on attending the NACC, please stop by our booth for a visit.
