A Less Anxious Presence

Posted by: | Comments (3)

sun soakingI recently heard someone say their goal for the year was to have a “less anxious presence”. I immediately loved that phrase and found it came from a book called The Leader’s Journey by Herrington, Creech, and Taylor.  I didn’t recall having heard of the book but jotted down the name, intending to check it out later. However I quickly forgot all about the book.

A few days ago I finally got around to unpacking some books from a week away last October. One of the books was The Leader’s Journey. I had bought the book but not gotten around to reading. it Not yet making the connection, I began reading the book and this morning I saw it. That phrase, “a less anxious presence”.  An aha moment! Once again, my soul and spirit inside me felt the yearning to connect to all that phrase represented.

How Can You Maximize Your Life?

Posted by: | Comments (3)

prayerfulnessIt’s often been said that life is a great teacher, but perhaps the greater truth is that life has the potential to be a great teacher. Life is composed of both good and bad days, wonderful and terrible seasons, Potentially we can learn from everything from everyday, every experience. However, often we fail to really gain all that is potentially ours.

We sometimes speak of how we suppose we didn’t get a particular lesson on the first go-round so we have found ourselves going around again.

Those of us who are Christians often offer that example referring to the children of Israel who wandered around in the wilderness for forty years because of their unbelief. Around and around the same mountain they went. But in reality, the Israelites who didn’t believe, died in the wilderness and never entered the Promised Land. It was the new generation who were allowed to enter.
