OOPS ALERT! In my previous blog post, Successful Living, I refer to a sermon, Trading Truth, several times. In my information overload, I made a mistake which sermon I used as a resource. Oops! While Trading Truth has some applicable content to the post, the actual sermon most of the references come from The Danger of a Dream by Pastor Steven Furtick. I highly recommend both sermons as the material is quite applicable to living successfully, dreaming big and overcoming your past.
I watched both of these sermons this past weekend, and I came away with some exceptional revelations. Revelation is defined as the divine or supernatural disclosure to humans of something relating to human existence or the world. It’s like bringing a spiritual truth to the physical mind. I believe this is key to a holistic healthy life, mind, body and spirit health. Although, I should have known better than to watch two great and deeply meaningful sermons back-to-back. It was human mind overload. Thus, the mistake in my previous blog post. At the gym this morning, I listened to Trading Truth again. I will probably listen to The Danger of a Dream again as well. They are just that good!

“A belief that one will be successful is one of the strongest predictors of goal achievement.” ~Dr. Henry Cloud, Boundaries
Recently I read an excerpt from Dr. Henry Cloud’s book,
Boundaries. I felt like this really tied into the visions and dreams theme that
seems to keep coming up again and again. I’m certain God is trying to tell me
something as this excerpt was about achieving success which goes right along
with the Propel Women conversation series I’m currently participating in called
Success. If you are not familiar
with Propel Women, it is an organization designed to connect women to find
their passion, purpose and potential in order to fulfill their God-given
destiny. It’s really quite a beautiful way to connect with women from every
walk of life within a local chapter. For me, it’s a great way to become a part
of a Christ community where you can be vulnerable and authentic as well as grow
personally. …THE REST OF THE STORY
“I don’t follow dreams. I follow Jesus and when I follow Jesus, dreams follow me.” ~Steven Furtick, Trading Truth (Elevation Church)
Trading Truth was such a great sermon! I found it interesting that Pastor Steven talked about vision boards especially after I just created one yesterday. He had some great points, but the above quote really stood out to me.
He also said, “What if your dream was just a first draft? Are you open to revisions?” …THE REST OF THE STORY
