What's In Your ____? My Article in Relevant Magazine
Like me, you might wake up some days and think, “I’m going to do better at ________________.” Perhaps your [blank] is something like personal spiritual disciplines. Or maybe it’s a secret sin you’re facing. Or the way you spend money. Truth is, we all have those blanks—the things we want to change or “do better.”
Unfortunately, the blanks of our lives often control us more than we’re able to master them. This can be incredibly frustrating and, in some cases, deeply depressing. We curse ourselves and shout at God: Why can’t I pull this off!?
Our world is full of blanks. Christ’s followers should do better at: • Stopping the genocide in Darfur • Ending extreme poverty and hunger • Caring for people infected with HIV/AIDS • Eradicating malaria • Preventing the human trafficking of young girls as sex slaves
You won’t solve your problems by thinking about them and hoping they get better. You change the world by choosing to live into new ways of thinking.
I’ve developed a five-step way to put action to your thoughts and “fill in the blanks” in your own life.
