Brain Trip

Recently I went to Haiti with a team on a missions trip.  While I was there someone on my team said to me that when I die, she was pretty sure that people in the science world would examine my brain.  I was not sure how to take that.  But with that thought of looking inside my brain, I thought I would share some random thoughts that have been floating in my brain.  Over the last 2 months, I have been at conferences, on a cruise, in Haiti, on retreats, on vacation, at various places speaking, and at home a little.  Being in all of  these environments has lead to the genesis of the following thoughts.

  • I am so grateful for the staff I get to work with at Grace Fellowship.  They are awesome.
  • My soul is so encouraged by seeing young people living passionately for God.
  • It bums me out to see people dealing with pain that was preventable.
  • Something amazing happens with a person gets perspective that makes him or her more grateful for what he or she has.
  • You need time to think.  You need to create space to dream and be creative.  When a person does this, you see their effectiveness in the world have the potential to take off.
  • Parenting is the hardest thing I have ever tried to do well.  I also am more grateful for my parents that ever before.
  • I feel like the next 5-10 years of my life are going to contain some works of God that are going to blow me away.
  • There is power when hurt people deal with their pain.  Do not hide it.  Be brave and share it.
